Tearful Return


One of our alumni was in the Chabad of Poway when the shooting took place. He returned to Valley Torah today to say Birchas HaGomel.

Dr. Allen Ardestani (’97) was visiting his family in Poway for Pesach when the shots rang out. He returned to Los Angeles and joined our minyan today. Tears were flowing as he received an aliyah and said Birchas¬†HaGomel. After davening, Dr. Ardestani shared is harrowing story with the boys. He showed them how Hashem orchestrated many small “coincidences” to keep him and his family safe.
