He was also AB"D of Paterson, NJ for many years, and he published the shiurim of his Rebbe R Shlomo Heiman and his own shiurim in his sefer Shiurei Gittin.

I heard many shiuyrim from him!!! a great talmid chochim and person. He was an interesting chosid since his upbringing was so far from being a true chosid of the rebbe. But the Rebbe was Mikariv him many times and i remember the rebbes once scream out his name that that Patterson Rov .....

RIP

Rav Greenberg left a great son a big talmid chochem who wrote beautiful seforim. Lives in Buffalo NY.
The shiur is a geshmake, and I appreciate Hirshel for delivering it.

Thanks for posting this shiur, Hirsh. As a former talmid of his from those years, it brings back vivid memories. Most of his oral shiurim, like his written chidushim, were based on Reb Shloyme's chidushim. He had this ethereal gaze when he gave his shiurim - looking over our heads, out the far window facing the bright sun shining through the shading trees & chirping birds.

Go ahead I would love it.
cant wait for next post.

Hirshel Tzig - הירשל ציג said...

you start, Vohlin

what part of Vohlin should we talk about?

Yehuda said...

He has left a son , a very eloquent fellow, a scholar, surely by lubob standards, and maybe even by olamishe standards.Yet he is a Meshichist, a broish hamedabrim meshichist.
And that is the quandary of Chabad.Where some of the brightest and eloquent people promote the yellow view and by extension the notion that Lubab and surely Latter day Lubob is off the tracks to very different path, than the rest of yiddishkait

Yehuda
"Latter day Lubob is off the tracks to very different path, than the rest of yiddishkait"
In my world Lubavich is already off the normative path, for 70 years.
What is now different?
Do you hate both the same? the Moshiachist and non Moshiachist?
Whats the degree of hate difference? plz decipher it for the clueless readers.

Vohliner said...

1) magidus
2) sovrein/tcshernobel = breslov
3) forgoten hoifen
4) rebishe einiklach that werent the bigest tzadikim (pls dont bring D Asaf cuz their is no bigger lier and hater like him, and he knows it the best.)
5) progroms and basic chasidic history.

Vohliner
" sovrein/tcshernobel = breslov"
the real and the first nemesis of Breslov, was the Shpoler Ziede. Chernobel came in later in the game,

Vohliner said...

Well to get it strait, Shpoler Zaide = nachmen.
Sovrein = noson.
Tschernobel = nachmon of tulschin v'kol hador shlishi

Vohliner said...

to What chadidus did Asher Ginsberg from skver aka achad h'am family belong to?

Yehuda said...

Hate Reader,
Where did you see hate, in the mirror?
I explained the quandary non lubavitchers have, it's not for you

pitputim said...

Bit hard to follow the audio, but I don't see any problem with Tzig identifying such people. The part that saddens me (and probably many) is how many such people would join chabad now. The last Rebbe was a magnet, a Gadol and an inspiration.
חבל על דאבדין ולא משתכחין

I'm sure many who might consider doing so after being inspired by his Chassidus are also put off by the yellow badged vultures occupying 770.

It is a real shame, and causes me sadness.

"Where did you see hate, in the mirror?

placing Jews who have different beliefs then you and your buddies out of the Machna, is Hate, whichevever way you slice...I would like to know what means Love by you...
Explaing a hate dogma (in your words quandry) is hate, and no need for a mirror....
