I have a wonderful story that truly shows how unique the Yeshiva Darchei Torah rebbeim are. It was a freezing winter day in Yeshiva.
My son's Rebbi took the boys out for a little recess to get fresh air. My son, Binyamin, was in 3rd grade at the time. They were playing football and, of course, he removed his coat, so that he could play better. After recess, he could not find his coat anywhere. He looked all over the field, checked his classroom, checked lost and found, and even went to Rabbi Morgenstern’s office to see if someone found it and brought it there. Unfortunately, it was nowhere to be found.
Rabbi Morgenstern, without thinking twice, took his coat off and gave it to Binyamin, so that he could go home and on the bus staying warm. When Binyamin walked in the house wearing an adult coat, I was so confused. Binyamin told me the whole story.
My husband and I looked at each other and said: "This is why we send our boys to Yeshiva Darchei Torah!" We were so touched that a menahel, Rabbi Morgenstern, would - without hesitating - take the coat off of his back for one of the talmidim. Incredible!!
That’s a Darchei Menahel.
