Chief Rabbi of Israel visits GTJ
It is simply amazing that the renowned personage, the Chief Rabbi of Israel, HaRav Yitzhak Yosef, made time to visit the children of Girls Town Jerusalem. The Chief Rabbi came especially to give encouragement and blessings to the youngsters in our Homes that hail from the far-flung communities known as the Bnai Menashe of northeastern India. HaRav Yosef’s father, HaRav Ovadia Yosef, zechor tzadik v’kadosh, was an early and constant supporter of Girls Town Jerusalem and the current Chief Rabbi has been a dear contemporary both Rabbi Avraham Stern, Director of Bayit Lepletot - Girls Town Jerusalem and Rabbi Elchanan Peretz, the Rabbinic authority for Girls Town Jerusalem. The visit was something that will long stand in the memories of Girls Town’s young women.
