A recap of Simchas Torah with the Tzaddik in Amsterdam

Boruch Hashem over 300 people merited spending Simchas Torah with the Rav in Amsterdam. The good Mayor of Amsterdam allowed for a local Jewish school to be opened for the masses, mattresses were brought and whoever didn't have accommodations slept and ate in the hall of the school. On Simchas Torah morning the Rav came for Yom Tov davening - which went on together with hakafos until the night without a break - it was me'in olam habah. The locals, doing the mitzvah of hachnasas orchim b'hidur brought over their yom tov meals for the many guests and also merited sharing the simchas hachag in the presence of the Tzaddik -  there was no shortage of festivities and happiness.

At the same time thousands of Rabbi Berlands students celebrated Simchas Torah in Jerusalem with the hope and prayer that they will soon merit rejoicing with their Rav in the Holy City. ותחזנה עינינו בשובך לציון ברחמים...
