פאטיקער רב זצ"ל דערציילט איבער זיינע איבערלעבענישען אין די מלחמה

און זאגט אויך זיין מיינונג איבער א אידישע מדינה

פאטיקער רב שטייענדיג אונטער הרב הרצוג, לינקס אינעם בילד, מיט ברילען

Rav Shlomo Zalman Horowitz z"l was the Rav in Potok-Zloty, Galicia before WW2. To bring it closer to home, he was - As far as I remember - the father of Reb Shmeel Horowitz, the Bobover Ruv's Gabbai. Here he tells David P. Broder about his experiences during WW2. It's quite eye-opening. The reader who sent this link to us tells me that it's interesting to hear what he thought then of an impending Jewish State in then-Palestine. א  חרד'ישע איד וואלט היינט נישט אזוי גערעדט, ווייל ער וואלט מורא האבען אז מ'וועט אים נאכשרייען אז ער איז א ציוניסט.

A few times as a boy in the 1980s I went to the Bobover tish. The gabbai then had a white beard, looked like zayer a choshuve Yid. The oylam said he was a gadol in nistar besides nigleh. I think his name was Zeffren or episs azoy. When was R' Shmeel Horowitz the gabbai?

Keep up the great work, and Im sorry if I woke you!
