Rabbi Farber,
Thirty years ago, you had many choices where you could go to continue your personal growth. You chose to join us. I hope that you have received what you were looking for by doing so. As a result of your decision, the lives of the talmidim of Shapell's / Darche Noam were changed forever. Our relationship has been, and continues to be, a centerpiece of my growth and my identity. I hope to continue to learn from you for many years to come. Thank you,

Mazel tov and Yesher Koach to Rav Farber! What a great honor the Yeshiva has had with Rav Farber being an integral mashpiya for so many years.
I personally have benefited much from my relationship with him in hashkafa shiurim, telling stories about Rav Hutner, in getting him off topic to talk about the mysteries of various numbers ("let me tell you about the number four!"), to hiking together, to helping name one of our children.
One of his children once said that he liked teaching at Shapell's since the students really didn't understand what a special person he is. Sometimes we do get a glimpse of it!
We bless Rav Farber to have many more years of health, happiness and hatzlacha and with the koach to continue to inspire all those around him.
Yasher Koach Tov to the Roshei Yeshiva and the Rebbeim! We wish you continued hatzlacha in teaching scores of thirsty yiddishe neshamas.

BS"D I am so grateful to have learned with Rav Farber.
I was also zoche to have Rav Farber as a witness at my wedding and to celebrate and dance together.
Rav Farber has left an indelible mark of holiness on my life and for that I am ever grateful.

Learning from Rabbi Farber was a highlight of my time at Shapell's. He is a constant source of inspiration in my Avodat Hashem and is an incredible role model in my journey toward becoming a decent, dignified, Jewish human being.
 
May his presence and energy in the beit midrash continue in good health to 120 and beyond!

Dear Rabbi Farber,

Mazal tov Rav Farber!
You have been a true inspiration to me from the day I stepped into Yeshiva Darchei Noam. The zchus that I had a private chavrusa with you on a regular basis was worth its weight in gold and more. You taught me the fundamental foundations one should have- how a true Jew needs to conduct himself in life. You incorporated for me the "Maharalian Torah" into ones life. I will always have a great debt of gratitude to you.
 
Health, happiness and continued koach to spreading the precious Torah to us all,

The years I sat across from you in the בית מדרש,
the dance I shared with you at my aufruf and חתונה
(and countless other שמחות), you holding our youngest son
as the סנדק.... these memories are constant sources
of חיזוק, איזון וכיוון. .
מורי ורבי, I am eternally grateful.

To Rav Farber,
The impact that you have had on the life of our family is immeasurable. From the first days of learning Derech Hashem, to standing under our chuppah as an eid, to bentching our children when we came to see you in Yerushalayim.
Your ahava pnimis for Torah, for your talmidim and for all of Klal Yisroel is matched only by your awesome simchas hachayim that overflows to all who come near you! and even those who are far away! We can never thank you enough.

Your passion for learning and teaching Torah inspired me
while in yeshiva, and continues to inspire me until today.
 
Thank you in particular for opening up the world

And, my family and I will forever be grateful to you
for enhancing our wedding with your spirited simcha dancing!

Wishing Mazal tov to Rabbi Mendel Farber and to the entire Shapell's/Darche Noam faculty & staff! We remain forever grateful to the yeshiva for giving us the opportunity to learn from, with, and in the presence of Rabbi Farber! The vision of Rabbi Farber's simchas hachaim in his dancing, the power of his emunah, the sincerity of his inspiration in the words of the Maharal and so much else in Torah have remained with us, thank G-d, during the many years since our precious time in the yeshiva. We remember with great joy our time together with Rabbi Farber and his and the yeshiva's good friend, Rav Yaacov Yellin--who became ours as well! Our physical feet have not walked the yeshiva's halls in quite some years--may our family again dance there soon in great joy!--but our heart has never left, and not a day goes by that we don't appreciate that all we have comes either wholly or in great part from the yeshiva.

One of the countless things that I have learned from Rav Farber is that words, while necessary and essential in order to communicate, inevitably limit the depth of one's thoughts. As the Maharal explains, this limitation is a necessary evil that we accept in order to be able to share and explain ourselves and our ideas. In terms of the hakaras hatov that I owe Rav Farber, words are definitely limiting. Rav Farber has had a tremendous impact on my life. However, equally influential to his enormous impact on my life is the example that he has set. During my time in the Yeshiva, Rav Farber would often quote a part of the pasuk in Bereishis about the formation of man: "ויפח באפיו נשמת חיים ויהי האדם לנפש חיה". Rav Farber always urged us to remember that Hashem created Adam with divine potential and energy, and consequently he encouraged us to strive for ambitious goals in ruchniyus. But by far the best encouragement has been the privilege of seeing a living example of someone that the Torah has transformed. Rav Farber's living embodiment of pure idealism teaches us that such gadlus and achievement are indeed possible. Hashem should give Rav Farber many, many more years to continue to inspire generations of talmidim.
With an eternally deep appreciation that words cannot adequately express,
and with much love,

Shapell's is the place where, in a sense, "I grew up"
and I am so grateful to Rabbi Karlinsky and Rabbi Hirshfeld
for accepting me into the yeshiva and to the whole Shapell's
staff for teaching me and setting an example for me.
 
I wish Shapell's and Rabbi Farber a major Mazal Tov
and I'm always happy for occasions such as this
to reconnect with the Darche Noam family.

Mazel tov to Rabbi Farber on this thoroughly deserved honor! We wish we could be there in Eretz HaKodesh to celebrate in person with you, and with all the amazing rebbanim and alumni of Darchei Noam! Words cannot express our full hakaras hatov to Rabbi Farber for giving us the tools and inspiration to transform the lifelong avodah of talmud Torah into an unlimited well of deep fulfillment---giving life to the neshama and bridging the vast chasm between the sechel and the lev. Thank you for showing us the true meaning of Gadlus HaAdam, both in learning and in personal example.

With tremendous hakaras hatov, we wish Mazal Tov
to Rabbi Farber on 30 years of dedication to
the Shapell's/Darche Noam and the Jewish world. 
That 30 years is exponentially greater with the Torah,
middos & simchas chaim our Rebbe selflessly imparted
and exuded to so many across the world
(yes, even here in Melbourne, Australia). 
 
We wish Rabbi Farber arichas yamim v'tovim.
