Hello Everyone!

Ill be learning the last few blatt of Pesochim with my dear Father Dr Rutenberg shlita in this years Yom Hashas in aid of the amazing Leeds Kollel.

This year Ive raised my goal Leilui Nishmas a beloved Great Aunt - Aunty Sessie Jakobowitz o"h who was niftar this past Fri afternnon shortly before Shabbos 23rd Shevat 5781.

When she came to England on the Kinder Transport as an 11 year old girl, together with her esteemed older brothers -  the late Mr Leo Dzialowski ztzl and yblcht my dear Grandfather Mr Salo Dzialowski shlita - they first ended up being welcomed to the Leeds Jewish Community. She was put up with a well to do family Lewis, traditional Jews, who very dedicatedly looked after her. On the first shabbos she was there, Mr Lewis came home from work late on Friday afternoon. Mrs Lewis lit shabbos candles and they sat down to a Friday night dinner. When they finished, asthey were going up stairs they asked little Sessie 'Please remember to turn out the lights'. She was dumb founded, rooted to the spot. How could she be Mechaleil Shabbos? This is not what she was used to from her upbringing in Leipzig! One of the Lewis grandparents were there and called up after the Lewis's - 'Sessie is keeping shabbos, she cant turn out the lights'! They were startled, they were impressed with Aunty Sessie's shtarkkeit, they took action - they paid for one of Leeds Rebbetzins to learn with her halochos and inyonim of yiddishkeit! She enhanced their Yiddishkeit and brought them closer to Hashem. She often repeated this episode, wondering if she had followed their instruction, it may have been the end of her Yiddishkeit! She always encourged people to stand firm and make the right decision! Perhaps she was a trailblazer and pioneer for Kiruv in Leeds, something that Leeds Kollel not only appreciate but have made it their mandate - to reach out to our Jewish bretheren with amazing programs and shiurim while up holding uncompromising Kollel learning.

Many thanks,
