To Rabbi and Rebetzin Hirshfeld
and to the incredible Rabbonim and Staff,
There could be no replacement for the influence that
the Rosh Yeshiva and the Yeshiva itself had and continue to
have on me, even so many years after I left. The lessons
and core values I learned continues to inspire me towards
a lifelong path of growth. I value our personal relationship
no less than I did when we shared daily interaction,
and will forever be appreciative for the opportunity to
have been close enough to see the Rav as a person.
Thank you for tolerating my growing pains
with trust and love.

Rabbi Hirshfeld Pinat Noam
It is indeed an absolute privilege to have learned and remain associated with Darché Noam - a Torah institution that has deeply impacted our lives, those of our children, and the lives of thousands of other Jewish men and women around the world.  Darché Noam developed our love for learning and allowed us to access the classical Jewish sources in a deeper and more meaningful way. Our profound appreciation to the Roshei Yeshiva, HaRav Karlinsky and HaRav Hirshfeld, all the other Rabbeiyim (in particular "my" teachers, Rav Silverberg, Rav Kwass, Rav Cohen) and staff at Shapell's
and their respective families.
Bezrat Hashem during the next 40 years, Darché Noam should continue
to be matzliach in being marbitz HaTorah, and developing the spiritual lives
of Jewish men and women around the world.

ולא נתן ה' לכם לב לדעת, ועינים לראות, ואזנים לשמע, עד היום הזה;
 
ואולך אתכם ארבעים שנה במדבר -דברים כט, ג-ד
רש"י שם: 'לא נתן ה' לכם לב לדעת', להכיר את חסדי הקדוש ברוך הוא ולידבק בו... שאין אדם עומד
על סוף דעתו של רבו וחכמת משנתו עד ארבעים שנה-עבודה זרה ה, ב
 
רק בהתבוננות אחורה לאחר שהרה"ג ר' יצחק אריה הירשפלד שליט"א
שימש כ"מוליך אתכם ארבעים שנה במדבר", מסוגלים אנו "להכיר את גודל חסדי הקדוש ברוך הוא"
שגמל לנו ולכלל ישראל בסיוע מעל לדרכי הטבע בהקמת, החזקת והתעצמות
ישיבת "שאפל - דרכי נועם", להפצת והאדרת התורה ברבים.
 
יהא רעוא מן שמיא שהרב יצחק ורעייתו הרבנית חוה שתח', יאריכו ימים ושנים בבריאות
וימשיכו לעשות חייל לאורייתא בהרבצת התורה, ויזכו לראות רוב נחת מכל צאצאתיהם,
והרי -כל המלמד את בן חבירו תורה, מעלה עליו הכתוב כאלו ילדו
-מברכים מעומק הלב

In all the years since I attended Midreshet Rachel, I never was able to give back financially.
I now am in the bitter-sweet position to make a donation because of an inheritance
my parents left, I would like to THANK Rabbi Shurin, Rabbi Karlinsky, and Midreshet Rachel
for giving me the ability to learn there for two years, part-time while I worked as well,
for a very minimal tuition. I would like to dedicate the rest of this page to my beloved parents,

Mazal Tov on 40 years! Midrashet Rachel was just
the right place for me when I was living in Israel in 1997.
I appreciated the dedication of Rabbi Shurin, Lynn Finson,
and so many of the amazing teachers that I was privleged
to learn from. I not only learned, but I found many role models
at Midrashet Rachel which helped me want to grow
in my Avodos Hashem.
Thank you to the amazing staff and students
that were there in 1997.
Midrashet Rachel, may your staff continue to
inspire women to grow in their Avodos Hashem.
 
All the Best,
Julie Klein

When I first arrived at Darché Noam, the Yeshiva was still in its infancy and I was a post collegiate "Jewish infant."  I had started keeping Shabbat but I had no idea why. Rabbis Feigenbaum, Hirschfeld and Karlinsky provided the framework which would guide me to become a Jewish adult-one who would be enabled to make critical decisions about life. And Michael Cohen provided the smile and outstretched hand to make the process a smooth one, and Rav Herczeg had patience.
Rav Hirschfeld and Rav Tabasky helped me understand the "why"s, Rav Farber opened my eyes and heart to the world of the Ramchal. Rabbis Yosef and Reuven Kamenetsky and Yitzchak Shurin introduced me to HaGaon HaRav Yaakov Kamenetsky Zt"l . Rabbi Eli embodied Religious Zionism. And I was embraced by the menshlichkeit of the families of the Rebbeim.
Thank  you all, especially Rav Hirshfeld, for helping me gain the insight to understand my life goal and grow toward it-becoming an Eved Hashem.

Dear Daddy and Mummy,
For the past forty years, you have been opening your hearts and home to scores
of young people who were not privileged to a Torah home. Watching your
constant and unfaltering dedication lovingly leading your students to a life of Torah and mitzvos has taught us responsibility, consistency
and generosity לשם שמים.  You are our role models for Mesirus Nefesh, setting goals, and achieving them.
May you be זוכה to see the fruits of your hard work in the building of another Jewish generation and the building of בית המקדש and Yerushalayim בב"א.

Mazal Tov to Rabbi and Mrs. Hirshfeld on achieving
this amazing milestone. For 40 years you have guided and molded
Talmidim and left an eternal impact on the Jewish nation vibrating
throughout the world. Your unconditional commitment to
the Talmidim at Shapell's/Darché Noam was and continues to be
a beacon of light  shining in so many different Jewish communities.
But perhaps the most valuable asset you have shared and role modeled
is your passion to Torah learning and the thirst for Torah growth that every Talmid emulates and strives to achieve. I echo the thoughts
of so many Talmidim who are eternally grateful.
May Hashem bless you and the Rebbetzin with health, happiness
and Nachat from your immediate and extended family.

Mazal Tov Rosh Yeshiva!
From the day I walked into Shapell's, the Rosh Yeshiva has been there for me in every milestone and all the growth along the way.  Every time I've come with two different sides and a tough decision to make, the Rosh Yeshiva has always provided a third position with wisdom, understanding and creativity. 
As a newly married man, I was able to regularly attend the married men's shiur. One week I missed it, and my wife felt the difference in my ability to relate to her. She said, "you missed Rav Hirshfeld's shiur this week didn't you?"  Our connection with the Rosh Yeshiva brings us that much closer to a real tzuras haAdam.
We have unending gratitude for the tireless efforts and and timeless wisdom

You have been an inspiration to so many talmidim and have had

My family is proud to be one of those families, I was fortunate to
have benefited from your teachings, your humility, your open door,
your unique approach to Torah and Avodat Hashem, and your sense
of humor. A particular memory that stands out for me was being at
your Purim seudah my first year at Shapell's. I recall the pure

together around your table.

לכבוד ראש הישיבה, מו"ר הרב הירשפלד, שליט"א
Dear Rav Hirshfeld, shlita, our beloved Rosh Yeshiva,
We take this opportunity to share some words of הערכה and הכרת הטוב for 40 years of leadership,
educational pioneering, and service to Klal Yisrael. We stand in awe at the
בית גדול of תורה and תפילה, of תשובה and דרך ארץ, that, with tremendous סייעתא דשמיא,
you and your partners built in ירושלים עיר הקודש. 
יישר כחך for fulfilling העמידו תלמידים הרבה, bringing the mesorah of Torah, Gemara, Lomdus, and Tikkun Hamidos to thousands of Jews beginning Talmud Torah as adults. As rebbeim and talmidim, we benefited and continue to benefit from the rare combinations you have cultivated within yourself - giving guidance and direction while fostering independence, preserving the mesorah with a refreshing open-mindedness, living with deep humility as well as powerful conviction and presence. A serious approach was always tempered with good humor. Your calm demeanor and purposeful leadership proved invaluable in times of upheaval. And your love of growth pushed us to constantly refine, reshape, and improve.

Your love of Torah is contagious. We thank you for sharing with us the joy of a true chiddush, of a clear and deep analysis of a machlokes Rashi and Tosafos that sings out from their words. The sound of your tefillah on the Yamim Noraim and at the כותל המערבי inspired כוונה through נגינה. You are a role model of integrity and a living example of one who takes upon himself responsibility.  We bless you and your family with long years of health and happiness, of nachas from all of your descendants and all of your talmidim. We pray that you can continue for many years, learning and teaching Torah in the Beis Medresh you so love, and with talmidim you so love.

Mazal Tov to the Hirshfelds! Rabbi Hirshfeld, you have been such a tremendous influence and teacher to both of us, and given us both an incredible sense of warm, belonging, purpose, and motivation during our year at Shapell's/MRC. Your inspiration will carry through many generations and beyond, and certainly for the rest of our lives in our avodah to build Torah home. Thank you for all you have done for us and for all the talmidim of Darche Noam!
