Rabbi and Mrs. Yehuda Simes live with their family in Ottawa, Canada.

The Max and Simes families’ friendship began from the days when Rabbi Simes and Rabbi Max studied together for many years at the famed Rabbinical Seminary of America - located in Forest Hills, NY at the time. (RSA has since moved to Flushing, NY.)

One evening in June, 2010 the Simes’ were driving from NY back home to Ottawa when a horrific accident occurred. Rabbi Simes was left a quadriplegic.

With all of the incredible difficulties Rabbi Simes has experienced these last few years, his demeanor and outstanding faith in G-d has not withered an iota.

In fact, Rabbi Simes continues to motivate others through his blog.
