After shacharis on Wednesday, Rabbi Kahn addressed the student body to provide a short eulogy for former Israeli President Shimon Peres A"H, who had passed away the night before.

Rabbi Kahn spoke of President Peres' love for Israel. Whether one agreed with his policies and positions or not, we have to admire and appreciate his Ahavas Yisrael and Ahavas Medinas Yisrael. He worked tirelessly and passionately in his various roles in public serves over the past many decades.

Rabbi Kahn also shared his own personal recollection. A few years ago when returning from a trip to Israel, Rabbi Kahn happened to be on the same flight as President Peres. Rabbi Kahn described the President's humility when he came back to greet the other passengers.

May his memory forever be for a blessing.
