This past Shabbos, the Kollel and the community were graced with the presence of HaRav Chaim Yehoshua and Rebbetzin Sarah Hoberman. HaRav Hoberman is the Rosh Yeshiva of Mesivta of Long Beach, and a Rebbi and mentor to several of the Kollel Rabbis.
HaRav Hoberman shared freely of his Torah wisdom over the entire weekend, with addresses at Yeshiva of Minneapolis, Bais Yaakov of the Twin Cities, Kenesseth Israel, Bais Yisroel, and the Kollel.
HaRav Hoberman gave a Chumash Shiur on Friday night at the home of HaRav and Rebbetzin Gibber, on the concept of "fear out of love"- how the greatest levels of love, whether in our relationship with Hashem, or in any relationship, will bring a fear and a caution of doing anything that could damage that relationship.
At Shalosh Seudos at Bais Yisroel, sponsored in honor of the visit, HaRav Hoberman spoke of the responsibility we all have to help and encourage the spiritual growth of those around us, regardless of our level of knowledge or devotion. He also expressed his pleasure in seeing the development of the community since he was here last, over 16 years ago.
