saks-soloveitchik-vort-smallThe engagement of a granddaughter of Rav Meshulem Dovid Soloveitchik, son of the Brisker Rov and rosh yeshiva of Yeshivas Brisk in Yerushalayim, was announced this week. The kallah is a daughter of Rav Dovid’s son, Rav Velvel Soloveitchik, who delivers shiur in his father’s yeshiva. Rav Velvel is a son-in-law of Rav Berel Povarsky, rosh yeshiva of Yeshivas Ponovezh in Bnei Brak.

The chosson, Eli Moshe Saks, is a son of Rav Elazar Saks of Cleveland Heights, Ohio, and a grandson of Rav Baruch Saks of Lakewood, maggid shiur at Yeshiva of Staten Island and former rov of the Agudah of 14th Avenue in Boro Park. The chosson is also a grandson of Rav Meir Zelig Mann zt”l, executive director of Yeshivas Telshe-Cleveland. The chosson is currently a talmid at Rav Dovid Soloveitchik’s yeshiva.

L-R: Rav Velvel Soloveichik, Rav Dovid Soloveichik, the chosson, Eli Moshe Saks, and Rav Berel Povarsky.

L-R: Rav Velvel Soloveichik, Rav Dovid Soloveichik, the chosson, Eli Moshe Saks, and Rav Berel Povarsky.

This is not the first time that the Soloveitchik family has been meshadeich with families from chutz la’aretz. Rav Dovid’s own rebbetzin, a daughter of Rav Asher Shternbuch zt”l, hails from England. Also, Rav Dovid’s son-in-law, Rav Nechemya Kaplan, rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Shaar Hatalmud in Yerushalayim and a son of Rav Boruch and Rebbetzin Vichnah Kaplan zt”l, hails from New York.

Actually most of the shidduchim in the Solovetchik family were with Chutz L’aretz families.

Most of R’ Berel’s children also married into families from Europe

He is young and was not at all planing on getting married for the next few years. He’s there since Sukkos and spoke a few times in learning with R’ Dovid. - That did it!

Mazal Tov R’ Elazar!

It’s this kind of silliness that people can get away by posting anonymous comments. I am certain if I were to meet you in shul you would be a pleasant Yid to meet and would not talk this way. And af al pi kayn, why talk this way anyway?! Why do we lose our conscience here in the comments?

After the “rant” article about how shidduchim and schools are all about status, why is matzav.com running an article about how much yichus this couple has? Who cares who their parents and grandparents are? How about who they are?
