# 2912 Good Things Come to those Who Wait

Q. I have been learning in a Kolel in Yerushalaim for several years. I’m married with two small children and was offered a position as a rabbi and teacher for three years in a Latin American country where I grew up. Although this is a great opportunity for my family and for the community I was offered to join, my parents and family are very worried because the pandemic risks are very great in that country. What is Horav Miller’s opinion?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that if you have the potential to indeed be mezakeh and spread the learning and keeping of Torah to others. in places that are isolated and hard to have contact with, you should do so. After all our Torah (Koheles 8: 5) teaches us that a Shomer Mitzva – “a keeper o a mitzva, shall know no evil thing.” Thus, you shall not encounter any harmful situations and the Torah and mitzvos you keep and promote, will protect you.
The Rov agreed that you may want to suggest to the inviting community, to wait just a few months if possible, until the danger decreases.
Rabbi A. Bartfeld as advised By Horav Shlomo Miller and Horav Aharon Miller Shlit’a
