BeHadrei Haredim censors the תולדות of הרב יחיאל צוקרוב ע"ה, a talmid of the Lubavitcher Yeshiva in Tel Aviv
This may not be their fault, the family may have sent it in that way and the poor writer wasn't the wiser, but the story still stands. Besides, they should know better by now than to think that פונקט this detail of his life's story was somehow forgotten or unimportant. The man whom the late Ponovizher Rosh Yeshiva called one of the ל"ו צדיקים was a Talmid of the Yeshiva Achei Tmimim in Tel Aviv, before being "coaxed away" by the Ponovizher Rov to his newly-recreated Yeshiva on the hill. The give away was the fact that they do mention that he learned by Reb Dovid Povarski, who, כידוע, was a Rosh Yeshiva in Lubavitch. Maybe to his overzealous family or friends this was some kind of stain on his record...
See for yourselves
