The Mashgiach Talks about All Issues of Our Times

In a rare talk touching upon all issues of our times, the Mashgiach, HaRav Don Segal, analyzed the events from the view of daas Torah regarding everything taking place around us in defining the obligation of the Torah public at this hour. This is what he said:

It is written, 'You shall bring them and plant then on the mountain of Your heritage, in the place, Hashem, which You made for You to dwell in, in the sanctuary, Hashem, which Your Hands established." This means that after He shall bring you to Eretz Yisroel, and will plant you in the mountain of His heritage, in order to reach the goal of "the sanctuary of Hashem which Your hands established," Jewry must be in the state of machon leshivtecha. Even after tivi'eimo that Hashem has brought Klal Yisrael to Eretz Yisrael, and even after vesito'eimo behar nachaloshecho still, in order to achieve the final state ofMikdosh Hashem koneneu Yodecho, this obligates a reality where Jewry is an establishment of Your residence — machon leshivtecha — ,and only afterwards will Hashem establish the Mikdosh. It does not state that He will reside "within it" but "within you," inside each and every one.





Hundreds expected at Agudah's 2022 Yerushalayim Yarchei Kallah

With the opening of Eretz Yisrael to tourists from around the world, the Torah community is just weeks away from a golden opportunity to take to the skies, as Agudas Yisroel's annual Yarchei Kallah is set to unfold in Yerushalayim.

Run by the Agudah's Torah Projects Commission, this year's Yarchei Kallah will take place February 20th to 24th /19 - 23 Adar I at the Ramada Jerusalem hotel and will delve into the intricacies of Hilchos Krias HaTorah V'Haftora, building on concepts recently covered in Daf Yomi. A list of Sugya mareh mekomos is available here.





Recommendations that are Not Recommendations

The position of the attorney general has developed over the years to one of the most central positions of the Israeli government. The judicial responsibility to advise the government has turned the attorney general to one who is virtually running almost everything. His decision is veritably the last word on government decisions, including those of the various governmental offices. Now that the incumbent is completing his term, they are looking feverishly for a successor. A special committee is expected to recommend several candidates to the Minister of Justice from which to choose. This committee, one would think, will probably do a thorough job of examining the best one suited for this pivotal and central office.

Is this really the case? After all, we are talking about serious people, like the past president of the High Court, Asher Gronis, or the past Justice Minister, Dan Meridor. The committee is assumedly checking each candidate thoroughly and the recommendations which each one submits.

But this is not the case! At least this is what Avishai Greenzwieg, economic columnist of Globus maintains.




The Life and Life's Work of HaRav Shimon Schwab

Editorial note: The article was written and published in 1995/5755 in the months following the petiroh of HaRav Shimon Schwab zt"l. This year on Purim Katan will be the 27th yahrtzeit.

The first part discussed Rav Schwab's family and background, with emphasis on his father R' Yehuda. Then the discussion moved to Rav Schwab's education, first in Frankfurt and then in the Lithuanian yeshiva at Telz.

Part II

In the winter zman of 1928-29 an event occurred which caused Rav Schwab to terminate his stay in Telz. The hanholo of the Yeshiva made a decision which did not sit well with the bochurim. When the bochurim took drastic steps to protest the decision of the roshei hayeshiva, Rav Schwab decided that Telz wasn't a place for him anymore. He felt that it wasn't the bochurim's task to meddle in the affairs of the roshei hayeshiva. He decided, therefore, not to return to Telz following Pesach of 1929.
