Rav Shteinman Meets Rav Yoel Kahn


rav-shteinman-rav-yoel-kahn[Photos below.] The senior rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Orchos Torah, Maran Rav Aharon Leib Shteinman, hosted the well-known elder Lubavitcher talmid chochom, Rav Yoel Kahn, this evening.

 The meeting took place at Rav Shteinman’s home in Bnei Brak and was coordinated by Lubavitch businessman Avraham Kanelsky.

Rav Kahn is in Eretz Yisroel for a series of events in honor of the 19th of Kislev, known as the “Rosh Hashanah of Chassidus.”

The two exchanged Torah thoughts and Rav Shteinman asked Rav Kahn about his age, his upbringing and when he emigrated to the U.S. from Eretz Yisroel.

At the end of their conversation, a new sefer, “Chassidus Mevueres – Tefillah,” a compilation of insights from the Baal Hatanya, was presented to Rav Shteinman.

  1. Kol Hakavod to Rav Shteinman for hosting Rav Kahn at his home. I’YH this will promote achdus among the Litvisher and Lubavitcher communities. This is definitely a positive sign that Moshiach is coming very, very soon.

  2. Why is this different than all the thousands of people who visit R. Shteinman? I visited him and he spoke to me and my brother at length because our father O”H was from Brisk like he is. I didn’t make it into Matzav.com though…

  3. comment #1 why dont you listen to the conversation that they had and to the sichah of the rebbe that reb yoel said over to reb aryeh leib, and to the way he was introduced as the lubavitcher rebbes choseh,then watch how he was given a sefer with the rebbes pirushim how he took it ,looked at it and how his talmidim said that he wont go to sleep until he finishes looking through the sefer. And then tell me he was unaware of the background.
    hence the only one to beware is you!!!

  4. To#4 You didn’t make it to Matzav because your ChaimZ and Rav Kahn is from the biggest Goaninm in Lubavitch. When 2 Gedolim meet it makes it to Matzav and other websites.

  5. It’s about time we as a community learn how to differentiate between what the ‘Mecharcharei Riv’ say and what the actual facts on the ground are.

  6. To #4 (ChaimZ)

    R’ Yoel ‘makes it to Matzav’ for 2 reasons:

    1. he doesn’t have spare time to comment on websites

    2. He doesnt have any interest to ‘make it to Matzav’

    …which is why neither you or I will ‘make it to Matzav’
