Look me in the eye and say that, you DDF tzugekummener...
Sounds like when I do that I will have seen one.

Alas, the only time I was in Wickliffe was for Kaparas one year. Outdoors.

But the Rosh gave me a bracha with my lekach one year that I shouldn't be such a yekke.
Sorry, I canít click the link to see which Rosh that is, but Rabbi Chaim Stein ztl who was a Rosh Yeshiva there was married to a Gezha

Can we merge with this?
https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=121445.0

Noooo, you can split off the relevant discussion to merge it there (basically the entire thread), but the AMA is still a good thing for other future discussions.

I didn't click. But there is only one "the Rosh".

I know Rabbi Stein had Lubavitcher relatives (R' Mottel Shusterman, R' Monye Schneur IINM) but I'm not sure if his wife was indeed Gezhe. Can anyone confirm?

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.
