  1. As a former talmidei of Bayonne who BH has been able to help the Yeshiva out financially once I went to work I had a very close relationship to Reb Velvy. He was an amazing person who ran the Yeshiva with much mesiras nefesh. However he was not the Rosh Yeshiva. He ran the finances and the day to day operations of the Yeshiva.
