Rosh Chaburah Of 40 Years To Become R’M In Ponoviz

r chaim ginsburgJUST IN: Rav Chaim Ginsberg, the long standing Rosh Chaburah of Seder Kodshim in Lakewood, will be leaving Lakewood to become a R’M, in the Ponovizer Yeshivah in Bnei Brak, TLS has learned. R’ Chaim, who is known for his fluency in Shas and Poskim, and is a grandson of Rav Yecheskel Levenstein the Mashgiach of Ponoviz and Mir, will head a new Kodshim Chaburah in Ponivitsh. R’ Chaim was offered the position just days ago, sources say.

R’ Chaim will  reportedly be leaving Lakewood early next week, to be in Ponoviz for Shvuos, as well as deliver a Shiur there on Shvuos, and will remain in Bnei Brak for his new position. TLS-WN. Photo credit: Lakewood Shopper.

  1. Did this have anything to do with the recent signed agreement making Bnei Brak and Lakewood twin cities??? If so Kudos to Menashe Miller for arranging

  2. A huge Talmid Chochom, who like many others was never recognised for his greatness in Torah, and was linited from growing to his full potential due to “Kinas Sofrim”

  3. a true Tzaddik that continues to live in the Shaar Hanava-a life of humility & always keeps a low profile & far from Honer.
    May Hashem give him continuous Hatzlacha in Bnei Brak

  4. A giant in Torah, yes, in Midos, yes. And we have several such giants in town.

    But he is also a giant in Ehrlechkeit, something much more rare. He is non-political, and he will be missed.

    What’s that sincere saying we keep hearing from time to time?

    “Mir hoben em nisht genuck mechabed gevain”.

  5. We didnt apreciate him, and ponovech relizes who he is and took him. Our loss. He was a rosh hayeshiva without having a yeshiva his whole life

  6. #1 well said
    #8 good zug
    Perhaps we should do tshuva and see if there is anyone else in our midst that is more deserving than what theyre getting
