דער ביאליסטאקער מגיד האלט א רעדע

ס'איז "צוקער זיס", האט מיר דער וואס האט מיר געשיקט די לינק געזאגט, און קיין אנדערע וועג צו באשרייבן איז נישט דא. This is just more of what we've had in the past and no longer do. The maggid who entertains and gently chides.

Part I

 Part II

"This speech was probably delivered at a wedding or sheva brachot between 1945 and 1948. Rabbi Rappaport praises the parents of the newlywed couple for giving their children a Jewish education. He criticizes American Jews who do not provide their children with a Jewish education, since they believe that this will prevent their children from succeeding in American society. He mentions the concentration camps and stresses the need for a Jewish homeland in Eretz Israel, and concludes with the need for the Messiah."

I heard he once gave a shmuz in elul, simply repeating 1 possuk or maamar chazal over and over again with the mussar niggun. To powerful effect.

רבותי! לאמיר מאכ'ן אנ אנקעטע, וועם עס בארדע גיפעלט אייך בעסער! דעם כהן'ס פון האמבורגר אפשטאם, אדער דעם ביאליסטאקער מגיד'ס

false description said...

Its a false description to say he
"stresses the need for a Jewish homeland in Eretz Israel, and concludes with the need for the Messiah".
He highlights the uniqueness of meshiach and mocks the minute aspirations of the Zionist

דעם מגידס וועסטעלע, קנעפעלט זיך פון לינקס צו רעכטס! וויי צו מיינע גיביינער

Not True? said...

Zalman.Alpert, Reviewed and made the summary of recording

photographer said...

ah broch,

"דעם מגידס וועסטעלע, קנעפעלט זיך פון לינקס צו רעכטס! וויי צו מיינע גיביינער"

you must have forgotten that pictures in those days were developed from a negative which if you turn upside down will produce that result.

Hirshel Tzig - הירשל ציג said...

I don't think that the negative was flipped in this case. Everything else seems normal.

The Bray of Fundie said...

Beautiful. i would have loved to hear him as a baal tefila. What a slice of history. Was it Rav meir'l Premishlaner?

The Bray of Fundie said...

does YU have more if these types of recordings on line? Rav Shimon Shkop said shiurim there...do they have any recordings of his z"l voice?

Fed Up In Peoria said...

We have a better magid. The Kew Gardens Magid. Ha.

Genuine ראש ישיבה said...

photographer : " pictures in those days were developed from a negative which if you turn upside down will produce that result."

and: Hirshel Tzig said: I don't think that the negative was flipped in this case. Everything else seems normal.
--------

I agree with hirshel! If it would of been flipped, than he would of stand up side down on his head! unless he was also a ראש ישיבה
meaning his ראש was the ישיבה
in that case maybe it is flipped! וצ"ע



Photographer said...

Hirshel I disagree, unless there was a particular side one wore his pocket watch.
How else can you tell?

He was the originator of the beautiful story of the forsaken tallis (now made into a moving Yonason Schwarts song)

Moshe Escott said...

Thanks for the hat tip!

An honor to be mentioned here, but
I'm just reporting the news :-)

The true יישר כחכם goes to the ones
mentioned on that page who donated
the recording and contributed the bio
material.

I sent that picture of Rabbi Rappaport to B. Amsel at Kevarim.

It was taken at the wedding of my 1st cousin twice removed (my grandmother's 1st cousin) in Washington Heights in the 40s.
