Nefesh Dovid is a lifesaving resource for hard of hearing people everywhere. Nefesh Dovid has taken its place as a glowing beacon of light, unadulterated truth and holiness within the darkness and challenges of today’s world. All those who come into contact with the Rosh Hayeshiva, Rav Chaim Tzvi Kakon, and his devotion to his talmidim are able to take home a little bit of that light, demand for excellence and unconditional acceptance and make it a part of themselves.
Many alumni return “home” to replenish their stores of strength and clarity of vision and Reb Isser Lubecki is no exception. An alumnus of Yeshivas Nefesh Dovid, Reb Isser hails from Paris, France and attended Nefesh Dovid for several years before moving on, with the encouragement and blessing of his Rosh Yeshiva, to learn at Yeshivas Oholei Menachem Mendel, also situated in Toronto. He barely knew how to read Chumash at the beginning yet was determined and spent tireless hours each day to achieve the incredible accomplishment of completing the Shas as well as Nach.
Reb Isser and his wife and family are in shlichus in Paris where he is actively involved in the Chevra Kadisha and gives shiurim among his other myriad duties. Reb Isser had a special, close relationship with his mentor, Rav Samuel Azimov, OB”M, Shliach in Paris, France. He currently maintains a personal connection with Rav Korsia, the Chief Rabbi of France. He is returning to Canada on his way to the Chabad Shlichus convention in New York.
During his stopover in Toronto, he will be commemorating the siyum on the entire Shas and Tanach at the home of his very first Rosh Yeshiva, Rav Kakon. Many rabbanim and askanim are expected to be attending this very unusual event to partake in the nachas and sweetness of the hard earned and well deserved Torah of a shining young man with hearing loss who is well on his way to securing his place among the dedicated shluchim of Chabad.
