In honor of Rabbi Strassfeld’s, z”l, upcoming third yahrzeit, Yeshiva Ohr Simcha will be hosting Rabbi Paysach J. Krohn on Wednesday, January 8, at 8:30 p.m. at Congregation Ahavath Torah in Englewood. Rabbi Krohn will speak on “Refining Your Life: Bring Out the Best Within Yourself. “
Rabbi Strassfeld was known to have a lev (heart) that had room for everyone. He was known for his warmth, dedication and close relationship with every talmid. Rabbi Stassfeld founded Yeshiva Ohr Simcha in 1997. He became a lifelong rebbe for the hundreds of bochurim who have learned in his yeshiva over the years, many of whom spoke to him on a weekly basis.
Despite his exhaustive schedule at the yeshiva, Rabbi Strassfeld found time to learn with many members of the community. He gave a weekly Chumash shiur for baale batim, and studied daf yomi in the evenings individually with many community members. He always made students available to help the local shuls and aveilim with minyanim.
