The Dirshu Torah study organization last week marked the anniversary of the death of famed rabbi and arbiter of Jewish law Rabbi Yisrael Meir Kagan, better known as the Hafetz Haim, with a day of study and prayers, culminating in a visit by senior haredi rabbis to the rabbi’s grave in Radun, Belarus.

One hundred thousand boys and girls in hundreds of schools in Israel and abroad studied the major works of the Hafetz Haim using study sheets prepared by Dirshu last Tuesday, ahead of Rosh Hashana, marking the 82nd anniversary of the rabbi’s death in 1933.
