For Bnei Torah by a Ben Torah

Some of you here questioned Rabbi Pinchus Lipschutz's credentials and his general relationship - or lack thereof - with the Babylonian Talmud. You said he was a "BalleBus" and that he doesn't represent when he writes. We recently received an authentic copy of two approbations received by a then-unmarried Lipschutz to a sefer he wrote - um, compiled- in honor of his deceased mother, a"h. They include Harav Moshe Feinsten, zt"l, and Harav Yaakov Yisroel Kanievski, zt"l. Not bad for a young American lad. See them as you wish. We thank the reader who sent it in.

sefer he wrote?

It seems he was publihing his grandfathers sefer or something along those lines.

Modeh B'Miktsas said...

You may not be aware of this, but Rav Moshe would give haskamos to anyone who came to him with two exceptions: books that were outright kfira, and people who worked actively against the chareidi communities here and in eretz yisrael. It is possible for PL to have gotten a haskama from Rav Moshe without being a ben Torah.
BTW I wish you would define that very loaded term for purposes of this discussion.

Milhouse said...

Come on, have you read the "haskomos"? First of all, he didn't "write" this sefer; as the haskomos make clear, he just arranged and published some old ksovim that his zeide had in his possession. R Moshe and the Steipler thought this was a good idea, and wrote haskomos for the project; neither haskomo says anything of PL's personal qualifications for it, let alone of his lomdus. As far as the haskomos are concerned he is just a bochur hazetzer.


In general R Moshe's "haskomos" were rarely about the seforim themselves, which he rarely read. All they generally say is that so-and-so came to me and told me that he's writing about such-and-such a subject,and it's a good idea that something should be written about that subject, and he seems knowledgeable, so good on him.

John said...

Tzig, Did you actualy read what it says? All this piece of paper says is that he wanted to publish someone elses torah.
Any high school kid if you give him some money can do that. Yes there have been many grubber "ballebatim" that have done this many a time.

This is a message to Pinny: You could try spreading this letter around fun heint biz morgen. At the end of the day we all see what is REALY there, and that is..... nezem zav bi'af chazir.

Ht, read the leeter before you post, you are imbarassing youreself here.

BTW, can you read hebrew?

Hirshel Tzig said...

leeter? what's a leeter? see you made a mistake too.
I realize that he compiled Teshuvos and such, but that, too, takes some knowledge. There's also nice praise on the man himself.

Just be careful all of you, because then lots of seforim, mechaberim, and ideas may be negated too.

"leeter? what's a leeter? see you made a mistake too."

Sorry for the mistake, here let me fix it: Letter.
Now fix your mistake.

You realise that you admited to posting a bubba maisa by mistake. Show some honesty and correct the falshkite.

I know it was nice of PL to send you the letters that he wants evertone to see. And I know that you will forever feel that you have to lick up to him because of it. But please try and show some repect to the fact that we can all read hebrew.

Pinny Lipshutz and eyneekel of R'Leizer Levin.Interesting.That makes him a nephew of rosh yeshiva Telz Chicago, R'Avrohom Chaim Levin and R'Berel Wein bezivug rishon, no?
Tzig, you should know more about Telz than me, can you verify this?
R'Leizer was Av Beid Din Detroit, talmid of the Chofetz Chaim iirc

chaim said...

Tzig
I just watched the Cunin video!
Man, I'm not feeling very happy with this.....
Cunin speaking in some shul before the dreadful news that Rabbi Holtzberg and the rest had been murdered says that now that the kid was saved everybody else would be saved and..... "We''ll show them all that its the Rebbe who runs the world"
Be honest, are you not troubled by this kind of shprach?
I see now that some of the "slip of tongues" and strange (to my ears at least)language used by the maspidim, is common fare in Lubavitch.
Please tell me I'm wrong.

Anonymous said...

I read this blog with a certain amount of astonishment. Alas PL has shown he courage to see the Mesiras Nefesh of a Talmid Chacham who moves to India to learn Torah with Jews and open a place of Haknasas Orchim.

Instead of intelligent debate about the value of his piece the hostility drops down the level seen by two kids fighting in the playground. Assaults on PL integrity as a Ben Torah, challenging his commitment to his publication, besmirching his name.

If this is the level of the debate that represents the Litvashe world "oy vey" for Lakewood and company. Lipshultz had the courage to look beyond the politics as see a common destiny with a Jew in far away land who dedicated his live to others. Those who sit comfortable in warm houses in New Jersey throw eggs filled with malice and character assassinations. If that is the breath of ideas in the arsenal of the Litvashe world then we have arrived at a time of intellectual pigmys.

Get real you may have real disagreements with Lubavitch over many issues, and they have with you. Transcend your personal malice to find at least some common ground when Jews who dedicated their lives to Klal Yisroel rest in fresh graves. If you feel that PL has somehow failed his mandate ot championing the Yeshivash community than argue the points for what they are. Stop insulting his integrity as a Talmid Chacham and a Jew who heart is able to rise above his personal ideology to encompass someone that he has strong disagreements.

Can anyone comment on Cunins words?
Is this common in Lubavitch?
I'm no rov, but to say that "The Rebbe runs the world" souns like.....well you know what I mean without me saying it clearly.

Hirshel Tzig said...

common? not really.
but the point is that it's meaningless Lubavitch chatter, nothing that you think it is.

chaim said...

Hirshel
What does it mean."The Rebbe runs the world".Especially after his histalkus .
These words, if they were said about someone else on Sunday in a house of worship would be considerd bonafide a"z.Why is this just "meaningless chatter"?
(if i'm not mistaken cunin is not even an official "meshichist" he is aligned with the main Lubavitch institutions, no?

Btw
I think Cunin needs a rov to go and tell him in no uncertain terms real yiddishe hashkofo.It has to be a Lubavitcher because L's won't be mekabel from anyone else.
Legufoi shel inyon Cunin is arguably the shliach who has single handedly accomplished the most of any other shliach.He is an unbelievable bulldozer ad keday mesirus nefesh.He has many merits.
He also needs a good talking to so all the good he has done does not go down the drain.

To the spitz-chachomim who accuse Cunin of ..., he is merely saying fundamental Chassidic teachings (though not in too elegant fashion) of the very foudners of Chassidus, i.e., the Maggid of Mezeritsh who is the memale mokom of the Baal Shem Tov and the rebbe of all rebbes and their dynasties. Since לאו כל מוחא סביל דא
I cite in original from the Maggid's seforim published by Toldos Aaron:
לקוטי אמרים סי' ט: הצדיקים רוצים להנהיג את העולם וברא הקב"ה את העולמות כדי שיתעמגו בהנהיגם כו' וזהו רצון יראיו יעשה וכו

שם סי' רנב: שהתנה הקב"ה עם מע"ב שיעשו רצון הצדיקים אף שאינם בטבעם

ןעיין שם בלקוטים חדשים ערך צדיק ובפרט אות ה ואות ז ועוד.

ובהופות לספר לקוטים יקרים (מספר אור תורה מהרב המגיד*)ערך צדיקים:
שהשגחה שלו מסורה ביד הצדיקים ועל ידיהם הוא משגיח על העולמות

Quite clearly then he is not off the mark, and in the future check your sources before commenting.

To Anonymous 4:38: Didn't I tell you (and your bandwagon) to check the sources before you comment? I can understand that you don't know what the Zohar (3:71a-b)) says, but do you have to embarras yourself by publicising your ignorance of a simple ma'amar chazal that "gedolim tzadikim bemisosom yoiser mibechayehem"?

As for the "lomdim" who cite the principle of "doresh el hameissim", obviously they never learned the Gemara, Rambam and Shulchan Aruch which define what that means (never mind the aforementioned Zohar), thus - Rachmono litzlon - are megaleh ponim baTorah shelo kehalochoh. (with all that implies)

Interesting. Do you have to go to kivrei tzadikim for that when "melo kol ho'oretz kevodo" and "es hashomayim ve'es ho'oretz Ani molei" - even in the lowly "thornbush - she'ein mokom ponui belo Shechinoh afilu hasneh."

Incidentally, the Gemara you cited re R. Pichas ben Yoir, is cited there by the Maggid (in LA 252), but not as the source - but as being understood by the principle I mentioned in my post. But kudos to you for seeing the relationship.

anon4:45 said...

Zohar is talking about dead tzadikim davening before hashem, as the gemara says that mordechai went to the kivrie avos to daven before hashem. You don't need to be fancy and quote a zohar.

Tzadik gozer vihakadosh baruch hu mekayim, is something a lot bigger than tzadikim davening to hashem,
אמר רבי אבהו הכי קאמר אמר אלקי ישראל לי דבר צור ישראל אני מושל באדם מי מושל בי צדיק שאני גוזר גזרה ומבטלה

That is what the magid is referring to, if you don't see the difference, I can't help you.

And I was using doresh el hamesim as an expression. I know doresh el hamesim is specifically when you try to find out what will happen in the future as is clear from the pasuk "sho'el oiv vidoresh el hamesim"

But once you decided to put your foot in your mouth, here is what the חיי אדם says:

איסור דורש אל המתים זה שמרעיב עצמו ולן בבית הקברות כדי שתשרה עליו רוח הטומאה ואותן נשים וכן עמי הארצות שהולכין על קברי מתים וכאילו מדברים עם המתים ואומרים להם צרותיהם קרוב הדבר שהם בכלל זה ונמצא שיש מן הגאונים היו רוצים לאסור להשתטח על קברי מתים אלא ההולכים שם יתפללו לה' שימלא שאלותם בזכות אבותיו ובזכות הצדיקים

I'm not sure since when the CA is THE Mekor, but what really bothers me is how you've managed to drag this discussion from Shlomo Cunin to Doresh El Hameysim. This is old rehashed garbage. These are the old so-called "taynes" against the Rebbe, that he spent too much time at the Ohel.

So you don't thing there is any difference between the kosel that is says lo zaza shechina misham, and your local steibel?

And sorry it says in seforim that the reason we daven by kevarim is because the shechina is only by kivrie tzadikim, I didn't make it up.

PL, by sending this letter to a Lubavitcher blog you really arent doing much in terms of boosting and repairing your reputation within the yeshivish community. What you really need to do is have someone hang it up in the BMG coffee room. Although I'll admit, it will probably get more than a few laughs.

Hersh. Lets be realistic, you cant really say "for bnei torah by a ben torah" if a majority of what people refer to as "bnei torah", hardly agree with that statemant whan it comes to PL.
The bnei torah I know in Lakewood and elsewhere, dont consider him to be a ben torah or anything close to it, and usualy take offense when you put him the same category as them, (regardless of this letter from Reb Moshe and the Steiper about a sefer that PL DIDNT write).

The Mishna Berurah does not agree with you and your citations are incorrect. At least look them up before you cite them.

Look, nothing is going to change the way Cunin thinks. If he believes the Rebbe runs the world, this particular way of thinking is not in accord with basic Jewish fundamentals and is, thus, unacceptable. But no one here cares. They will make up citations and resort to circular reasoning but logic and honesty is not something you should expect to find. They are defensive for obvious reasons. They will always be defensive about these issues.

So just leave them alone!
