Young Chezki Torenheim Visits the Yanuka

Twelve year old Chezki Torenheim, the incredible young boy who was diagnosed with a terrible rare illness after he was born, continues to inspire all those he encounters.

Recently he visited Rav Shlomo Yehudah Beeri, known as the Yenuka, inviting the Rav to participate in his bar mitzvah celebration which will take place soon. The boy asked the young Rav for a Bracha, while excitedly showing him his new tefillin.

Rav Shlomo Yehudah was born in Eretz Yisrael in 1988, an only child born after many years. His paternal grandfather, Rav Shlomo, was a scion of the sages of Yemen and learned with the great mekubalim of Jerusalem after he arrived in the Holy Land. His maternal grandfather, Rav Yehudah, made aliyah from Aleppo, Syria.

the Yanuka, as he’s been known since his teenage years, comes form a reference in the Zohar to souls who already from childhood are exceptional in their Torah knowledge. For more about the Yenuka, see Here.
