PsOTD


















(l-r Rabbi Morris Sherer, Rav Yitzchok Hutner, Rav Yaakov Kamienecki, Journalist R' Gershon Ber Jacobson.)  Sruli Besser says: "There are many things about Rabbi YY Jacobson that are special; it's an honour to tell the story of a chassid who's capturing the hearts & minds of all sorts of listeners. The backstory of his father is incredible - this picture, of Reb Gershon Jacobson with Rav Hutner, Rav Yaakov and Rabbi Sherer, is thrilling; it captures the flavor of a different time."

Rabbi Goren was some 12 years younger than Rav Hutner, but they were acquaintances. The latter only leaving the Holy Land in approximately 1930. The former already being a talmid in the Chevroner Yeshiva at that time. And RYH again spending a year or so in the Holy Land some years later. Maybe they attended Rav Kook's shiurim together? The man in the middle is hitherto unknown. At least to me. UPDATE: Friday. Reb YD Miller tells us that this is Rabbi Menachem Tzvi Eichenstein, (1910-1981) Chief Rabbi of St. Louis.

במסכת חגיגה (דף ה, א): רבי יוחנן כי מטי להאי קרא בכי והיה כי תמצאן אותו רעות רבות וצרות... מאי רעות וצרות? אמר רב: רעות שנעשות צרות זו לזו, כגון: זיבורא ועקרבא

Rabbi YD Miller said...

Hershel,

I think the man in between RS Goranchik and Rav Hutner is Rav Eichenstein of St. louis

Is it possible?

Chalmers said...

I'm reminded of the joke, I think it goes like this:

Rav Goren encountered Rav Hutner on the street after many years, having known each other many years back in E"Y.

Rav Hutner says "Reb Shloimeh, ven gevornstu a chayal?"

Rav Goren responds "Reb Yitzchok, ven gevornstu a rebba?"


If anyone has a different nusach, please share it.

how many version will this lie be told?

Berel said...

How true is the Jacobson interview in Mispacha? Did the LR really quote Rav Chaim Brisker in the summer of 1991? I've gone through plenty of Likkutey Sichos and don't see the LR quoting non Chabad sources nearly as frequently as Jacobson claims.

for those who believe that reb chaim oizer would of supported the heresy of today's aguda! are prone to believe any version of any lie, as long as it suits their needs.

likotei sichos is compiled according to topics.
you need to go through sichos kodesh and hisvados to get a picture

Chabad -770, is as reliable as it gets.

Geler Badchan, whydo you say it's a lie? (Incorrect version, indeed). The correct story is that he went to the levaya and was asked afterward why he went (apparently the shoel felt that their theological differences were enough reason for RYH not to attend). To which he responded (something along the lines of) "There is a famous medrash about Noach getting bitten by the lion in the teva because his food was not served on time . But why is it that the lion bit Noach? There was a teva full of animals that needed to be fed and for coming late just one time the lion feltnis necessary to bite him? The answer is that the lion is the king of all animals. And this specific lion was the last of its kind. Therefore he deserved kavod melachim at every occasion, without fail. The same can be said for the SR. He was the last of the lions........"
