We want to hear from you.

If you are a talmid of the Rosh Yeshiva and would like to send us a story, or if you knew Rav Gifter in some other way and would like to share a memory, please leave a comment below.

You can even upload an image if you have a picture of the Rosh Yeshiva. We are actively looking for photos, videos and audio recordings to add to our archive on this site. We would be most grateful if you have an item that you would share with us.

A talmid of Rav Gifter wrote in and gave us permission to post his lovely account (anonymously) of some thoughts about his rebbe. Here is the beginning with a link to the rest:

The Yahrtzeit of the Telzer Rosh HaYeshiva HoRav Mordechai Gifter, זצוק״ל

The 15th yahrzeit of the Rosh HaYeshiva HoRav Mordechai Gifter, זצוק״ל has arrived (he was niftar on the 23rd of Teves.) I am a Telzer talmid, Baruch Hashem, and it was the only yeshiva where I have !earned for many many years. I want to thank Hashem that I had the merit to learn in this yeshiva and my children as well, B”H.

I came to the yeshiva at the age of 13 years old in the 1960’s. I remember seeing the Rosh HaYeshiva HoRav Gifter, זצוק״ל the very first time. He greeted me with “shalom”  and asked my name. From that day on, he embraced me like a father would a son and told me that if I need anything, I should not hesitate to come to the office. One week later, the Rosh HaYeshiva saw me again and he asked me how I was doing! Read more here.
