  1. The picture was in yerushalayim outside the house of Maran Posek Hador Harav Elyashiv shlita.

    And YES Harav Ginsburg will give shuirim in ivrit

  2. who will be the next tzaddik/person to leave lakewood to eretz yisroel & show Hashem that we want mashiach to come & are ready to move to Eretz Yisroel?

    if everyone heard on they’re radio that C”V WWIII was coming to america & only Israel was a safe place to go, how fast would people leave? everyone would take they’re time-even with they’re lives at steak C”V-some would go in a week other not for months… Me i should go to israel? im not ready to give up my house, car & fantasy life etc…

    When klal yisroel shows they’re yearning & desire for mashiach then Hashem will send him. until then we must remain in golus R”L

  3. Ma’alin B’Kodesh. R Chaim is setting a perfect example. All those in Lakewood beyond a certain point should look for greater opportunities.

  4. You don’t unfortunately feel the void till he leaves….we reallu had a Gadol in our midst.. Yetzias Tzaddik Oseh Roshom.

  5. חבל שכשהצדיק היה בקרבנו לא עשינו די מספיק כדי להשאיר אותו בלייקווד, אבל אנו מברכים אותו שיצליח מאד בכל מעשים שלו

  6. בית מדרש גבוה מברכת אותו שיצליח מאד מאד בכל אשר יפנה, אנחנו רוצים שיבא הרבה לבקר בלייקווד עיר התורה וימשיך להשפיע כאן מתורתו, שעכשיו היא גם תורת ארץ ישראל
