    we admire respect appreciate and think rabbi minkowitz is the best-but bais rivka montreal was started in 1956 in a small house
    thru the efforts of many ,rabbi leibel ceitlin broishom.
    rabbi minkowitz has been here since 1973-74 and has led us from small classes of 4-8 girls, to a big school of parellel classes- and we think he is the besst.thank you rabbi and mrs.

    There was no official frum school for jewish girls before rabbi minkowitz came along. there were 1 or 2 classes but no official school.

    Rabbo minkowitz was the first to start a jewish day school for boys or gilrs in canada and he built the beautiful building that exist today and he deserves a big yasher koach for this

    Rabbi Minkowitz is a amazing principle but he did not start the school and he did not build the building.

    Glad you think you’re setting the record straight but I happen to know first hand that rabbi minkowitz was directly responsible for obtaing the necessary permits to expand the school and make the building the way it looks today. And about starting the school it is true that there were other people that founded br montreal but they would be the first ones to tell u that without him it would never have really taken off.

    There was the lubavitcher yeshiva & Merkos hatorah for boys & bais rivkah & bais yakov here in Montreal before Rabbi Minkowitz showed up.
    Yes he had a lot to do with the growth of Bais Rivkah from a very small school to what it is today but please do not distort history.

    I remember when Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu came to visit although I do not remember his words. I only remember being particularly impressed by his hat and robe. Yasher Koach to Rabbi Minkowitz and the staff and students of BR.

    While both Rabbi Minkowits and Rabbi Dahan HAVE principles, neither of them IS a principle, they are both good principals.

    to #7 the first BR principal was Rabbi Slavin, a”h.
    to #14, just know that #23 and 24 are also right.

    That’s Montreal for you!
