Rav Salomon's Mashiah Dream
On Sunday, at what was the largest Hachnosas Sefer Torah event in the history of the Ihr HaTorah of Lakewood, some 6-7,000 men, women and children took part, together with the roshei yeshiva and mashgiach of Beth Medrash Govoha, as well as rabbonim and poskim from throughout the town, for the pesichah of the Kleinman Family Campus of BMG and a Hachnosas Sefer Torah dedicated by the Kleinman family.

Following the Hachnosas Sefer Torah, guests gathered for a seudas mitzvah in a tent behind the new Forest Avenue-Eleventh Street bais medrash. At the seudah, the crowd was addressed by several speakers, including the mashgiach of Beth Medrash Govoha, Rav Matisyahu Salomon, whose remarks have been quoted (and misquoted) and have been making the rounds in frum circles.

In his speech, Rav Matisyahu spoke about a dream that he had this past summer. The mashgiach’s rebbetzin was very ill at the time, and he dreamt that the rosh yeshiva, Rav Aharon Kotler zt”l, appeared to him, looking exactly the way he remembered him from when he saw the rosh yeshiva as a bochur in Gateshead Yeshiva. The rosh yeshiva told him that if he’s mekabel to remain in Lakewood, then his rebbetzin will have a refuah sheleimah and both he and his rebbetzin will merit to greet Moshiach. He was mekabel that, and the rebbetzin has been zocheh to a miraculous recovery.

The mashgiach commented that we’re living in Moshiach’s times and it’s incumbent upon every person to realize that.
