How I became a teacher

Filed under: Mishaps/tests/U name it — Reb Moshe @ 7:27 pm

I became a teacher of Torah when I was a young man of 21 years of age. My father had a stroke and was no longer able to speak or move. Knowing how he loved Torah and was a learned man, I took upon myself to prepare two times a week a 1 hour shir for him. Since he knew so much, I pushed myself to learn things much higher then my level and I prepared them for this one hour session. When I was finished each time, there was usually sweat dripping down my face, I felt I also had to deliver the shir with enough strength that it would last him as he sat there helpless. From that point on, I never stopped preparing shirim and after he left this world, I created the site in his memory about a year later. Rav Shlomo Zavel Ben Yaakov.
