Rav Pinchos Breuer Miraculously Survives Car Accident


breuer2Rav Pinchos Breuer, rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Knesses Eliyahu in Eretz Yisroel, miraculously survived a car accident yesterday while on his way to Chazon Yechezkel, where the yeshiva is located.

Rav Breuer, who was rov of Agudas Yisroel Bais Binyomin in Flatbush and a rosh yeshiva at Ateret Torah before he moved to Eretz Yisroel last year, was en route to deliver a shiur at his yeshiva when the car spun off the highway as heavy rain poured down. The incident took place on Highway 38, a dangerous road that leads to Beit Shemesh and has taken numerous lives, r”l. The rosh yeshiva’s vehicle, according to sources, was thrown into a nearby wadi, but Rav Breuer emerged unscathed. The rosh yeshiva assisted in extricating his driver from the vehicle, and boruch Hashem neither of them suffered injuries.

A driver who witnessed the accident slammed on his brakes, causing the car behind him to smash into his vehicle, but thankfully there were no injuries there either.

Rav Rothman, of Yeshiva Knesses Eliyahu, was immediately contacted and headed to the scene of the accident to assist. After regaining his bearings, Rav Breuer returned to his home in Yerushalayim.

Yeshiva Knesses Eliyahu in Chazon Yechezkel was founded in Elul by yungeleit of the Prushim community wishing to learn in the unique derech of Slabodka. With the support of various rabbonim, including the Gaavad of the Eidah Hachareidus, Rav Yitzchok Tuvia Wiess, the yeshiva was established and is led by Rav Breuer, whose brilliance in learning is well known and whose lucid shiurim are greatly anticipated by the talmidim. Rav Breuer’s extensive yedios in Torah, and unique qualities have earned the young yeshiva great respect from the Olam HaTorah in Eretz Yisroel.

  1. #5

    Logic 101.

    Accidents are not zechusim.

    Nissim (as in walking away from a accident)
    are zechusim.

    ‘quiz’ next week (if your ready).

  2. #5

    Lets do – Logic 101.

    1. Accidents are not zechusim.
    2. Nissim are zechusim.
    3. Walking away from a wreck is a Ness.
    4. Thus, walking away from a accident = a Zechus.
    5. If one states that the zechus of xyz caused a ness
    6. Then one can say: the zechus of Agudah (serving as its Rov) caused this ness.

    “Kapeesh” ?

  3. There are cetainly too many road accidents in Israel. No one has patience or any consideration for any one else driving. Each one thinks he is the master of the road. No one indictes if they are turning right or left and you can speed as much as you want and overtake without thinking. Driving is hefker and it is a “Sakono” to be in a car.

  4. #7 because people drive there the same way you walk in a crowd.

    Contemplation while driving is a recipy for disaster. They should outlaw it like text messaging.

    there is more to life than a mere bump on a vehicle

    we all have right of way because we are decedants of royalty

    jerusalem roads are windy like our middos and need to be worked on

  5. To #9:

    I fully agree. They are WORSE than NY drivers, worse than the car accidents in NY and worse than the terrorism in Israel
