Aiden (Raphael) Brookstone

Hi!

I’m Aiden (Raphael) Brookstone. Born and raised in Vancouver, I’m well versed in the city and its’ happenings. 

My favourite memory of Vancouver is February 2010, when we hosted the Winter Olympics. It was like every day when you walked outside, it didn’t matter who you were, you were simply a member of the Earth’s Family.

This is the same feeling I get at the Ohel Ya’akov Kollel, and I’m sure you’ll feel that way too.

I hope to see you around! 🙂
