The Toras Chaim — HaRav Chaim of Kossov, zt"l
In honor of his yahrtzeit, 25 Iyar (5614)
The gedolim of his time held R' Chaim in high
regard, even as a young man.
In fact, HaRav Hagodol R' Yehoshua Heshel of Apta
remarked to his son, "You see this avreich — a
tzaddik ben tzaddik, melech ben melech!"
Rabbi Chaim's hours were devoted to Torah study. Even
at night he would allow himself only one or two hours
of sleep, after which he would arise and learn until it
was daybreak and time to daven shacharis.
On the day of his father's yahrtzeit, he would
arrange to finish Shas Bavli, the Rambam
and the Rif
