A true Gadol and man of peace who loved both Chassidim and Litvishe Yidden. A sincere and honest man not a politician.

צוואתו של מרן הגראי"ל שטיינמן זצוק"ל

א. אבקש מאד לא להספידני לא בפני שלא בפני לא לעשות עצרת התעוררות או עצרת אבל או כל מיני שמות שבודים והכוונה להספד ב. לא לכתוב שום מאמר עלי בעיתונים יומיים שבועיים חודשיים מספיק תמונתי ולא כמו שרגילים לכתוב תולדותם ג. לא להדפיס מודעות על הלויה לא להודיע ברמקול או רדיו מספיק שיהיה רק עשרה אנשים בלויה ד להשתדל שלא לשהות בין מיטה לקבורה לזרז שיהיה קבורה הכי סמוך למיטה ה. מקומי בבית החיים בין אנשים פשוטים ו. לא לכתוב על המצבה שום תארים רק ‘פה נקבר רב אהרון יהודא לייב בן רב נח צבי שטיינמן’ ז המצבה תהיה הכי… Read more »

He was a true gadol. That video shows you what kind of honest and emesdiker person he was. The Torah world lost an amazing man today. I pray that his maaleh makom has the insight, the ahavas yisroel and true gadlus that R’ Shteinman Zatzal had.

That video says it all!

R’ Shteinman was unafraid to criticize shtus, like those guys trying to get R’ Shteinman’s blessing to not accept two boys into the yeshiva because they were “the wrong type.” He was always able to criticize frumkeit shtusim and he was a great man for it (in addition to all of the other great things he did). His views on Nahal Chareidi were also practical and intelligent. This is a huge loss.

The passing of Rav Shteinman is a loss for Klal Yisroel. He was firm in his convictions and not afraid to speak his mind. He lead his flock in a responsible and caring manner.

A deeply impressive Rosh Yeshiva BDE

Story about the Rosh Yeshiva & chabad

הרב שטיינמן: “שלא תהיה כתבה וגם לא יהיה מחלוקת” • מפעים (יום שלישי, כ”ד כסלו תשע”ח) “כשהכתבה הייתה מוכנה, עליתי לרב שטיינמן. הוא ישב וקרא בעיון ואז ביקש עט. ישב ומחק כל פעם שהופיעה המילה חב”ד. אני רואה את זה ועיניי כלות ואני צועק: הראש ישיבה! אין כתבה! והוא עונה לי בשלוות נפש: “אז שלא תהיה כתבה וגם לא יהיה מחלוקת” • סיפור מפעים על מאמציו של הגראי”ל שטיינמן זצ”ל למנוע מחלוקת ועל מה שהתרחש מאחורי הקלעים • לסיפור המלא הסיפור הבא, סופר בידי ר’ בנימין ליפקין לפני מספר שנים והגיע למערכת: “לפני כשלוש שנים פלוס פנה אליי בני רבינוביץ, כתב בכיר… Read more »

"torah jews"

"torah jews"

Without reading into it too much the name seems to be referring to a specific group, namely the litvish yeshiva community, and coins them as ‘torah jews.” I’m sure it was a simple mistake, but that totally undermines the very principles of torah and is flat out inaccurate. There is no one group that owns torah more than another.’ It belongs to all jews-morasha khilas Yaacov. Attributing one group to torah not only offends others, denies the truth, and cause friction, it is stealing a title and a inheritance! (I assumed it wasnt meant in the global Jewish community, because… Read more »

In the video the two individuals clearly lacked any respect. I found it shocking how they kept pushing their silly point. A little kabolos oil wouldn’t go amiss for them.

Do Torah Jews Follow Rav Shteinman?

Do Torah Jews Follow Rav Shteinman?

Following is the Daas Torah of Maran HaGaon Rav Aharon Yehuda Leib Shteinman zt’l Regarding GROWING A BEARD Emulate Other Bochurim or Disregard Them? • Maran HaRav Shteinman was recently asked by a number of yeshiva bochurim: “The rest of the bochurim in my yeshiva do not grow their beards. Should I follow their example or not?” To each of them he replied that they should disregard their colleagues’ conduct. • To one bochur he quoted the Mishna in Ediyos (5:6): “Better to be called a shoteh your entire life than to be a rasha even once.” • To another… Read more »

chabad lost a good friend

after the previous leader, Rav Shtieneman was a true friend of Chabad and help bring back peace between the Litvacks and Chabad.
BDE he will be remembered and missed.

Nati Grossman and the Yated Ne’eman community should do teshuva for the tzures they caused him. He was a principled leader. Baruch dayan ha’emes.

Not only did the Rav not hate Chabad, he was very much against the Peleg faction, from the Litvish world, protesting and attacking soldiers & police. He wanted them to go to the draft office when they got their army notices, get their exemption papers & go back to learning. He was a man of peace, not anger & fighting. He will be missed.
