In Tribute to Schabse Noach Gordon, of blessed memory
Now in its 22nd year, Hadar Hatorah's annual Purim Raffle owes its humble
origins to Schabse Gordon. When we were putting together the first raffle,
Schabse stepped forward and, without any fanfare, let us know that he would
be happy to donate the Purim megillah, which was then the "grand prize" of
two prizes. He was awed by the seriousness and dedication of our yeshiva
students, men who came from nonreligious backgrounds, who put aside their
secular pursuits temporarily to pursue a full-fledged Jewish education.
