rav-wosnerLast Monday, Rav Shmuel Halevi Wosner, author of the Shevet Halevi and rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Chachmei Lublin in Bnei Brak, celebrated his 99th birthday.

Rav Wosner was born in 1913 in Vienna, Austria. He learned in the famous Yeshivas Chachmei Lublin in Poland led by Rav Meir Shapiro, and married and moved to Eretz Yisroel before World War II, living in Yerushalayim where he learned at the Dushinsky Yeshiva. Despite his young age, he became a member of the Eidah Hachareidis.

When Rav Wosner moved to the Zichron Meir neighborhood of Bnei Brak, at the urging of the Chazon Ish, the Tchebiner Rov, Rav Isser Zalman Meltzer and others, he established his Yeshiva Chachmei Lublin, bearing the same name as the one in Lublin where he had learned in his youth.

On his birthday, Rav Wosner served as sandek at a bris in Bnei Brak.

May Hakadosh Boruch Hu give Rav Wosner kochos and gezunt for many, many more years.

Then Rav Elyashiv ZTL, then now R’ wosner LBBCLC Shlita. Is the news so important that you risk the lives of our gedolim because of your stupid news items.This is where the olam Hagashmi destroys all eidelkeit and ruchniyos . Wake up!

  4. So MATZAV, is it worth it for you to post this story at the expense of K’lal Yisroel?!?

    We need our Gedolim. Please do not cause any aiyin horah on them.

    Every time in the past when MATZAV posted these type of stories, nothing good came out of them.

    Is it worth the risk, just so you get a good story?

    Please remove this post at once!!

  5. Do me a favor–give me your birthday and I will post it all over the web next time it comes, and we will see how you like it. If you respect these people, stop acting like goyishe tabloids and leave them alone. People who need them will find them without you!

  6. i agree with 5 & 7
    dear Matzav please remove this post ASAP before its too late & you have charata C”V

    we all need this tzaddik to guide us
    & remain with us as long as possible until mashiach comes BUT every time his age is mentioned it puts a klala (curse)& ayin hara on him
