Audio: The Liska Rebbe on Rav Moshe Feinstein zt”l


In the following audio, the Liska Rebbe reminisces about his rosh yeshiva, Rav Moshe Feinstein zt”l, in honor of his 30th yahrtzeit. The following drashah was delivered last night, Motzoei Shabbos Parshas Zachor 5776.




  1. Thank you Liska Rebbe,

    Very beautiful and meaningful. Truly a wonderful description by the Liska Rebbe of the relationship with his Rosh Yeshivah Reb Moshe zt”l.

    There was an aura of KEDUSHA that surrounded Reb Moshe and he is and remains one of the most outstanding Gedolei Yisroel of the generation.

    May his memory and his ZECHUS continue to be a BROCHA for all of Klal Yisroel

  2. Interesting recording. But some context is needed.

    If you listen to the recording, he says that he went to R. Moshe as a yungerman, after his marriage, because at that time there almost no kollelim around, and R. Moshe had one. He also says that he learned in Torah Vodaas by R. Sheps, R. Kahanow, etc.

    Liska does not follow piskei halacha of Rav Moshe, particularly in hilchos Shabbos.

    Many people went to R. Moshe, and passed in and out of his Yeshiva. As conveyed in the recording, Rav Moshe zt”l was open and welcoming, and didn’t stand on ceremony. Just because someone spent time in MTJ doesn’t mean that they are a close talmid. There are different levels of talmidim.

    May Rav Moshe zt”l be a meilitz yosher for those who follow in his ways be’emes.
