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

For those who may not be familiar with Hirshel's info - see here:

This is an interview re R' Yoel Kahan's and R' Berel Povarsky's warm meeting in EY. RBP's father was Rosh yeshiva in Yeshivas chabad tel Aviv when r' yoel learned there (and later moved to Ponevezh when the position was offered his way), and R' Yoel's chavrusa at the time was R. Berman, also father of another Rosh yeshiva in Ponevezh today (he is present in that meeting as well).

I see on his resume that he was a rosh in 2 chasidic yeshiva,Bobov and Ruzhin, and maran certified as a Lamed Vovnik

Also, a previous R"Y in Lubavitch of Tel Aviv - was the Nesivos Sholom of Slonim, who was later succeeded by RYB Povarsky.

It seems that conspiracy theories are what makes you tick.You can't get enough of them.
Leinyoneinu, Bechadrei Chareidim, like almost all Chareidi publications have a problem differentiating fact from fiction, fable from reality.
It's interesting that in your conspiracy driven mindset "the family" was hiding the "terrible" secret.Ask yourself why, in all your paranoid stories people are always trying to keep as far away from Lubavitch as they can

typical anti-Semite arguments. "You Jews, you ever think about why the whole world hates you? why nobody wants you in their country? why you're hated by all nations?"

Nu, it's takke true. Everyone hates jews and jews dislike lubabs.

You really think a Lanmed Vovnik certified by the holy Avi Ezri loves chabad?
is that a conspiracy? or a unfortunate fact?
