Clarity in Torah and Character: HaGaon R' Shlomo Heiman — Rosh Yeshivas Torah Vodaas, Ramailless, and Baranovitch

by C. Zilberman

The yahrtzeit of HaRav Raphael Chaim Shlomo Heiman, gaon and true Torah pioneer in America, is 17 Kislev. He was niftar in 1945 at the age of 52, so this is his 76th yahrtzeit. We first published this 26 years ago, in the year of the 50th yahrtzeit, in our print edition in Eretz Yisroel. This is a major addition of information on HaRav Heiman to the Internet. It was written by Rabbi Zilberman originally in English specifically for the Israeli English Yated Ne'eman.

Method of Learning

In his learning R' Heiman concentrated on seeking amitah shel Torah - nothing less than the true interpretation. He would use his talents of profound understanding and straight thinking to delve deeply into the gemora and rishonim. Likewise, his main goal in his lifetime of teaching talmidim was to give them a true understanding and the ability to be able to think logically. He constantly aimed at this goal. He could not bear anything that was not logically straight. For this reason he preferred the blatt shiur in which he worked out the meaning of the gemora and commentaries together with his students. Every point he brought up was systematically and clearly arranged in his mind - he was a walking Shitah Mekubetses.
