א רבי אין אוניווערסיטעיט





















The Kaliver Rebbe of Williamsburg giving a shiur in Yeshiva University yesterday. As you can tell by the watermark this is an exclusive picture sent to us by a participant. I seem to remember hearing about Reb Shimon Shkop only teaching there before it was a University and that Reb Elchonon W not wanting to step in there while visiting NYC and even saying a פסוק that we say when passing a tifleh. At least according to Reb Sholom Schwadron. It seems like the Rebbe does not follow in those footsteps, he travels to spread Torah wherever he is welcome.

See our post about the KR from some time ago.

It seems to me that the Kalive Chasidim are all holy and pure that the Rebbe has nothing more to tell them so he is running all over the world to make them perfect!

This Rebbe actually learnt in CH Chabad cheder when he was a small kid. Went by taxi with a few other kids every day from Willi. It was in the 40's. I guess it rubbed off somewhat.

The Rebbe has devoted much of his time to the non chasidic crowd - i dont believe he has much of a following - similar to
Rabbi Michel Twerski

I'm in Denver. I'll never forget many years ago when another chassidic Rebbe, our own Rabbi Twerski (now of Flatbush) went on leil-Shabbos to speak in Temple Emanuel, a large reform congregation. Yes, it seems chassidic rebbes will spread Torah wherever they are welcome, baruch Hashem.

"This Rebbe actually learnt in CH Chabad cheder when he was a small kid. "
why did he go to CH? did his father live in Willi already?
He learned as a Bochur in Belz by Belzer Ruv Z"L same era as Reb Liebish Liezer, I think they are the same age.He himself is a Belzer Einikel, his mother was a Rokeach.

To step in a temple there is a spcific issur on that from the chasam sofer! even when there is no davening!, The kalever it seems seats in an 'outside' room! it may not be tasteful.., but no issur there.

It certainly did, that's why he married of to England and became succesful in Real Estate, But his younger brother reb lebish a"h was a pious man and a talmud cucem, it was rumored he will be the new kalever rebbe! although a talmid from reb arola belzer z"l, unfortunately he died very young, and things turned out different!

There are rules and exceptions to the rules. The above commenter is masiyach lefi tumo. We are therefore obligated to be dan lekaf zchus the Rebbe from Denver. I'm sure he had a hetter. There are plenty of "non moderne" who do plenty of kiruv inside all sorts of temples.

By Russian Rebbes they did not hold every issur of the Chasam Sofer,
Plus where is the Issur from the CS printed? It could be its from a generation later.

moshe abrams said...

actually, r shimon schkop was in YU when it was already a university, as he was there when rabbi dr revel was there. of course there is a bias, but the roshei yeshiva in YU say that when revel brought r shimon schkop to the boat, he said that he was leaving because he was needed in europe, not because he had something against YU.
as we know, r' elchonon was notoriously against. any university. this is by no means a universal view. many gedolim went to university, and there were plenty of big names in YU, even other than the Rov.

Ma Rabbi said...

The Kaliver Rebbe is a very sweet man. Last year my youngest son spent a Shabbos with him together with a small group of boys from his yeshiva. They all had the opportunity to speak privately with him for a few minutes. When my son told him the name of the small town where we live he correctly guessed " your father is the Chabad Shliach there." My son was very impressed with him.

Yes, the Denver Rebbe had a heter to do so, from R' Dovid Cohen, I heard... though it was not without controversy

the Aguda was not created that the Rebbe should eat on the same table with the Livaks wife, The holy Reb Avrohom Mordechai, who was a kodesh vetohar, did not have this intentions, but he wanted that all people who are charidem lidvar hashem, should sit on a round table to save Yiddishkiet.

My Great Uncle was in YU at the time, and his older brother was actually the assistant to RSS at that time. He said that RSS left because he was not happy with the secular studies in YU at he time. On the other hand, Making of a Godol and other family sources (including his grandson in law Rav Zelig Epstein) claim that he left because he couldn’t get his family over to America

Shiniver, aka our dear satmarer friend here, cannot handle when anybody says something against his rebbe, but of course he has no problem denigrating etc all the real gedolim on a daily basis.
What he doesn't "chap" is, that mahritav in hindsight is no big major leader of klal yisroel. All he had going for him was a lot of ingerisher & romainisher flaysh plus some good old fashioned terrorism.

----------------

Does your rebbe eat jerusalem kugel? if not here is the recipt, copy it on the back of your kvitel! the rebbe will appreciate it.

4 1/2 cups water
1 Tbsp. salt
3/4 Tbsp. black pepper
1 pound (400 grams) fine egg noodles
2/3 cup oil
1 1/4 cup sugar
4 eggs

1. Grease a baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius).
3. In a pot, bring water, salt and pepper to a boil. Add noodles. Cover pot. Reduce flame to low. Cook until water is absorbed.
4. Your careful attention (be careful not to burn yourself) and patience (don't leave this unattended) is needed to make the caramel. Place oil and sugar in a light-colored (so you can see the color of the melting sugar), heavy-bottomed saucepan. Heat on medium heat, stirring with a wooden spoon. Slowly the sugar will start to turn yellowish-brown and combine with the oil. If the sugar turns dark brown too quickly, turn the heat down. Stir until a bubbly, liquid caramel has formed. Then immediately pour caramel over cooked noodles and continue stirring until thoroughly blended.
5. Let cool for a few minutes. Then add eggs one at a time, mixing after each addition.
6. Pour into prepared pan. Bake for 1 to 1 1/2 hours at 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius) until nicely browned.
7. When done, remove immediately from pan.

"so unlike our holy master, the real manhig of bobov, what the rebbis of bobov did till this day for world jewry is unmached. it was bobov who build yeshivos, and thought what shabbos means."

1) i would realy like to know to which bobov you belong, are you a sample of what reb shlomo had?

2) did the bobov rebbi ever go anywhere with the only mission on mind - to be mechasik yidden?

3) what yeshiva exactly did reb shlomo build? he build a warehouse to store bochorim, he took them for tishin, weddings, chanuka, scach & sucka decorations. when he had no use of them, he nicly put them back in the warehouse (aka mesivta).

4) all one can remember of bobov is dancing, singing, and storytelling. from all thousands of pictures you seldom see one where he has a gemarah open.

5) regardless to which bobov you belong, both of them, still go on this path, with slight modifications acording to the time we live in. (ok drop credit to 45 that the rebbi their sits and learns even gives shiurim on the gemarah).

i"m sorry i read your comments here, i had to give out of the system.

Giving a shiur in YU is not somehting every rav can do the rpesent honholla are not bar debei chad yumas if you know what i mean...Next other rebbes have also visited yU like the Koidenover rebbe who also delivers a pep talk and gives out etzos and brachos.

Also before he became rebbe Reb Naftolche of Bobov ZTL was here at YU and rav Steinwurzel zTL gave an actual shiur in Nigle all in honor of Marcos katz a so called Bobover chasid.If anyone doubts it I ahve a special kuntres publsihed of this event right here at my desk with pictures shvartz af vais !
Before you get carried away about Reb Shimon , he actually was a rosh here for a year or so and vas hoben gefelt men like the Lomzher rav, Reb Dovid Lifshutz Reb Mendel Zaks , Reb Yeruchem Gorelik, Rav Lessin , vechuli ? The long time mashgicah here was Rav Zelmanowitz a Gerer chasid and rav of the Peylishe shtibel in Williamsburg Many European roshim delivered shiurim here at YU before the war.
It has become pretty well accepted that both Reb Yankev and Avi Ezri wre interested in accepting positions in YU .

Yes perhaps Reb Elchonon and Reb AAron did not deliver shiurim here but msot others di.. and MORE. Let me just add that instead of sending 17 year old bachurim from OT to YU the people at 770 sent some serious senior roshi yeshiva(like rabbis Shapiro, Kalmanson, Shochet, Heller) here they could accomplish something otherwise its just more baloney.

Shneur, your comment is fascinating.
"It has become pretty well accepted that both Reb Yankev and Avi Ezri wre interested in accepting positions in YU."
Can you shed a little more light on this statement?

Actualy, rav Aaron ALSO did. In around 1936 on a fundraising trip to the USA. Never again

reb aron was a weak character, No back bone certainly not reb wasserman's or even the rav harashi of NY.

Last week on WED I was busy studying real chassdius(and doing just a wee bit of work) and had no time for the Kaliver Rebbe shlit"a , but I saw him last year and I suspect this was a repeat performance !
The Koidenover is friend of mine and I appreciate his gadlus so much !
A shiur implies a shiur in "lernen " not a mussar shmuess or a dvar Torah or divre hissorerus.
As I said giving a shiur in Nigle is not a feat all can do even if you have a sheiner bord and a shenerer robe. The roshe yeshiva here are big lamdanim like Rabbis Willig, Twersky, Simon, and others
Reb Yankev. His son R. Nosson relates the fact that his dad wanted to come to YU.I heard him relate such myself. Also my friend Dr. Marc Shapiro has unearthed correspondence between Dr. Belkin and rav yankev about this subject.
The son of the Avi Ezri relates that his father wanted to come to Yu(after all his previosu posts wer ein Luninetz(Karlin) Tel Aviv Mizrachi and I think Hadarom (Rechovoth Mizrachi-RCA yeshiva)Mizrachi so why is this so out of line ? By the way the son Dr. Shach studied here at Yu and gained a doctorate here.
I think our readers need to know that classical Litvishe rabbonim and roshe yeshiva were not kanoim. Even Reb Elchonon was not such a kanoie.
Reb Moshe was a kanoie ?Reb Yankev ? Rav Ruderman ? Rav Isser Zalman ? Rav Chaim Ozer ? Rav Moshe Mordechai ? Rev Dovid Lifshitz ? Rav Gustman ?

Wow this is a great topic to follow up on. How did kano'us get into the litvishe stream that they sound almost like satmar today?

It seems (with no proof whatsoever) that everyone is trying to live up to some brisker standard, and kano'us is one way to do it.

YU became a University in 1945. Rav Shimon Shkop died in 1939, leaving YU in 1929. He may have left because of secular studies there at the time, but not because it was about to be or already a University.
