Azkara for Yair Elmaleh z"l

On Thursday night we had the privilege of hosting an azkara for Yair Elmaleh z"l, Rav Gil Elmaleh's twin brother and Michelle Elmaleh's brother-in-law. Yair passed away suddenly 9 years ago but his legacy of chessed and of giving lives on powerfully. 

Rav Gil began the evening talking about his brother and how drawn he was to giving and selflessness.

Afterward, the Rosh HaYeshiva, HaRav Yechezkel Yaakovson, shlit”a gave a sicha in Yair's memory (in Hebrew) about the importance of chessed in our own lives.

We were inspired deeply by the sichot and by the life that Yair Elmaleh z"l led. May his neshama have an aliyah
