נפטר געווארען הרה"ח ר' יוסף הלוי וויינבערג ע"ה


















הרב וויינבערג  עומד רביעי משמאל  (Photo: COL)

Reb Yossel Weinberg was from a family of Trisker Chassidim ( I once heard from him that the Trisker Rebbe put tefillin on him for the first time) in Poland who joined the Yeshiva Tomchei Tmimim in Otwock and became a fiery and very devoted Chossid of the Frierdige Rebbe, and later the Rebbe. He was a fundraiser for the Yeshivos Tomchei Tmimim in New York who used his travels to spread Yiddishkeit wherever he went. His weekly shiur Tanya was listened to by thousands on the "Jewish" radio, and his shiurim were later compiled into שיעורים בספר התניא in Hebrew and Yiddish, as well as '"Lessons in Tanya" in English. He also took that opportunity to review a sicha of the Rebbe, זי"ע, and thus be עוסק אין הפצת מעיינות הבעש"ט ותלמידיו לקרב הגאולה שלימה. But most of all he was a varemer Chassidisher Yid who served Hashem with love and fear and helped his fellow Yid as much as he can. He left a family of Rabbonim, Talmidei Chachomim, Shluchim of the Rebbe who follow in his ways and the דרכי החסידות.

Reb Yoseel opened many peoples eyes and minds to the holy tanya... My grandfather 3 generations belzer chosid was glued to his shiurim on the holy tanya ....
Btw you forgot to mention that he was last trisker chosid too

He also took that opportunity to review a sicha of the Rebbe, זי"ע, and thus be עוסק אין הפצת מעיינות הבעש"ט ותלמידיו לקרב הגאולה שלימה.

Thanks, Hirsh.

As someone who grew up on his block, I remember him foremostly as a mentsh: well balanced in chasidishkayt & learning yet still very down to earth & a warm family man. His farbrengens with us as youngsters, especially his memories of being with the פריעדיקער רבי מוהריי''ץ in Varsha תשרי ת''ש during the bombings, kept us mesmerized.

He also was from the original ועד להפצת שיחות to be מפרסם שיחות ומאמרי אדמו''ר הרמ''ש, set up in תש''י by בנצ'ע שם–טוב & אברהם פאריז, with יואל קאהן doing most of the חזרה & writing.

His fundraising talents (especially for תומכי תמימים) were legendary... IIRC, the רבי רמ''ש'ס response to a gvir in Chicago to still give money to the yeshivah even after י' שבט תש''י since "מיר און דער שווער זיינען איין נשמה אין צוויי גופים)ם)’’ was said to Rabbi Weinberg to tell the gvir.

& who can forget his סליחות? when we heard his לשמוע אל הרנה ואל התפילה we knew that Tishrei has begun. Same with his ידעתי ה' כי צדק משפטך during ר''ה מוסף. He supposedly learned his davening nusach from someone who heard it from the חזן of ליובאוויטש , ר' יחיאל האלפערין. There was a rumor that he worked on "losing" his Polish accent, which is why, unlike the other אטוואצקער בחורים , he had almost no Polish accent & he spoke almost like a ליטוואק.

There was a תשורה not long ago with just some of the רבי'ס copious comments & הגהות on שיעורים בספר התניא. If I find it I'll post the link.

It seems that in the old Polish pictures people seem very crowded. Everyone is sitting on top of each other.

An Ailmesher : "It seems that in the old Polish pictures people seem very crowded. Everyone is sitting on top of each other."

these pictures are mostly made by yeshivous in europe who used to send them overseas 'america' to receive charity they required certified proof of the number of talmidim etc. YU has a whole library with requests and receipt of the sums collected.

I can't help but think where are most of these talmidim today! I mean did they die naturally or c"v otherwise! recently I have seen i think from the sefas emes that people who got killed by a goverment are not בכלל קדושים, רק בכלל הרוגי מלכות! למאי נפק"מ

ziy

meaning if they're wearing modern suits then it's a necktie, but if they're wearing a chassidishe hittel and rekel then it's that "paroches'l"

I like that name פרוכת'ל of course some wore that and some wore neckties like most people in yeshivous where doing at the time! (also beards or beardless) except in satmar europe or in america the full chsidishe levish was unofficialy required meaning those who didn't need not to apply!

They are very dignified and neatly dressed unlike the Lubavitcher and Litvisha Bochurim these days

For מיצר הגרון:

Robitussin or warm salt-water gargle is also good for a sore throat מיצר הגרון
