A plaque unveiling ceremony was held last week at Sydney’s Kesser Torah College to recognise Rabbi Pinchus and Rebbetzin Pnina Feldman for their work for Jewish education in the community and in particular for their work in Yeshiva College.

The event was chaired by Rabbi Michoel Gourarie, Director of Bina and KTC Board member. Rabbi Gourarie spoke about the impact of Chabad under Rabbi Feldman’s leadership on the development of so many Jewish Organisations in Sydney, saying that much of the good work being done now by many independent organisations can be traced to Rabbi Feldman’s original efforts.

Mr Meir Moss, KTC President, praised Rabbi Feldman for his dedication and determination in ensuring the continued survival of Yiddishkeit in Sydney.  He officially unveiled the plaque, which reads: “Dedicated to Rabbi Pinchus Feldman OAM Dean and Spiritual Leader of The Yeshiva Centre, Honorary life president of the Rabbinical Council of New South Wales, longest serving principal of Yeshiva College and founding Campus College Dean at the Dover Heights site. And to Rebbetzin Pnina Feldman, founder and first principal of Yeshiva Girls High School.”

Rabbi Feldman addressed the gathering, saying that in remembering the past it is important to note that he and his Rebbetzin came to Sydney because of the inspiration and guidance of the Lubavitcher Rebbe.  He thanked a number of people for their support, including his wife, Rebbetzin Pnina Feldman, Yeshiva Life Governor Mr Harry Triguboff AO. Rabbi Dovid Slavin, members of his family and others in attendance including Dr Sam Friedman OAM, Mr Paul Stephenson and Mr Jack Fisher.

Rabbi Feldman concluded by quoting Talmudic passages about the blessings showered upon people when living in peace and harmony, and paid tribute to Rabbi Michoel Gourarie and Rabbi Yossi Feldman for facilitating the peace agreement with KTC.
