What is this - a continuation of the Telshe thread ? Didn't the Minkaczer learn in Telz ? Ken zein the Ponevezher Rav, lihavdil, did too.

Hershel, maybe that is something you should focus on. The Minkaczer in Telz. How long was he there? Why did he go there? What ages was he when he was there? Also, maybe discuss other famous Chassidishe, banshakim, who went there.

Was he your father's buddy there?

A froelichen Sabbes !

The Munkacser is a few years older than my father, so I don't remember now if they were there together. I need to ask. I believe the Dinover - his brother - was there at the same time, as was the Spinker Rebbe's sons. I do find that interesting, all those Banshakim in Litvishe Yeshivos. A little inferiority complex, perhaps?

The Ponovizher Rov I believe was a Telsher Talmid.

I takeh saw that the Munkaczer Rebbe is using a small antique meneyre this year. Are you sure it is from the Darkei Teshuvah? Agav, There is a live hookup to Chanukah Lecht in Munkacz every nite at 9:30 on 212 990 8000 pin number 4706# for all the out of town'ers.

Ever wonder why Litfisha Yeshivas always have Chasidisha cooks
and Chasiddisha Yeshivas have litfisha (trained)Roshashevas
