a tale of two ראשי ישיבה














What follows in this week's Mishpacha magazine is the usual "pick a city and insert Yeshiva's name here. How such-and-such mande such-and-such city into an oasis of Torah." [I should know. It's tough putting out riveting material every week.] So I didn't really bother reading the article, although there were some cute pictures there. The thing is, he (RYMK of Denver) does smile in many of the later pictures! But for some reason this is what they chose to put at the forefront. I guess it makes for a good read bait. I guess Rabbi Wasserman (left) was the one you went to if you wanted to go home or go lie down in middle of seder.

Am I scraping the bottom of the barrel here? Maybe.

"if you wanted to go home or go lie down in middle of seder."

Is that what they did in your yeshiva?

"I guess you have your eye.."

רמב"ן: "ואשימה עיני עליו" - אמר רבי אברהם הטעם שאראה אותו ולא מצאתי בכתוב "שימת עין על הראיה בלבד"? ושמתי עיני עליהם 'לטובה' (ירמיהו כד ו) קחנו ועינך שים עליו ואל תעש לו מאומה 'רע' (שם לט יב) כי לא צוה אותו שיראנו אחר שיקחנו אלא שישמור אותו "ויטיב לו".. ע"כ -בראשית מ"ד כא
