R’ Meir collected for a lot more then just these YU Shiurim. R’ Meir arranged and raised the funds for thousands of Tanya and Chassidus shiurim for many many years. There are hundreds of People that would have never learned a word of chassidus if not for R’ Meirs persistence and encouragement promising bochrim that he would take care of all the logistics if they got ppl to commit to attend. I once asked him what gave him the Chayus to continue for so many years – He told me that years ago when a friend of his went on… Read more »

He also used the money to send by mail publications to Yeshivas Lubavitch Cincinnati to give out on Mivtzoyim every Friday. I’m sure he used it for many other good things as well that we will slowly learn about!

R’ Meir a”h funded a Tanya shiur which I attended with a group of bochurim at yeshiva Torah Vodaas. 2 of the bochurim are shluchim today.
Later he funded a shiur with Rabbi YY Jacobson at torah vodaas with 20-30 participants for 3 years.

i drove Rbabi Boruch Leshess ( now Rabbi in Monsey )to give Shiurim in TANYA in Woodridge NY in the catskills in the KAMENITZ YESHIVA

Also Rabbi Meir Minkowitz , afterhe got his Drivers Licence
drove him to the same place ,
at that time the KAMENITZ YESIVA was there all year around ,

all this is one of many many Yeshivoth where he payed for Bochrim to travel to give Shiurim in Yeshivos

This is such an important program for our boys. It’s good for them to see that non lubavitchers can be just as learned (and sometimes more so), and just as frum. Many lubavitch boys grow up thinking any other derech is wrong. This is an opportunity for them to have mutual respect and see that both are right and good and holy, but in different ways.

For many years he organized Tanya/Chassidus shiurim in Lakewood (I think for years they were clandestine).

many yrs ago he sent me to teach tanya to teens wkly,when I got married I told him it’ll be hard now,He didn’t let go & in his friendly & non presuring (but persisting!!)way, he made it continue.through the next yrs he would constantly ask me about dif. yeshivos to find if they allready have a shiur chsidus & would tell me about new shiurei Tanya happening,that was his Simcha! & without taking ANY credit ! he went around as a Ish pashut.but he was A GIANT OF A CHOSID! There’s so much to say about him but it would… Read more »

When I was a bocher learning in Bais Hatalmud in Bensonhurst, Reb Meir would pay for the car service to bring the maggid shiur for the clandestine Thursday night Tanya shiur there and back. When the shiur was discovered and “shut down” by “the authorities”, he gave us money for the car service to Crown Heights and back every week! This one peula along with countless others is still producing peiros in hafotzos mayyanei hachassidus ad hayom!

Reb Meir a''h described :

How when he was a young cheder boy in Montreal,Reb Yudel Chitrik a”h was his melamed, and being right after the war there were many talmidim who came from somewhat troubled homes and were extremely wild. so Reb Yudel a”h would start off learning with them, but after a while some students would really start misbehaving, when that would happen Reb yudel would start telling them stories and more stories so they would sit still and listen. those stories is really what gave them a strong chinuch..

Many families in Lubavitch today...

I heard from my father that Reb Meir a’h would pick them up in a car and take them for a secret Tanya shiur in a corn field (NJ)!

He later went to Lubavitcher Yeshiva, and thus my family can say we owe it all to Reb Meir!!

it would be a great project and tribute to put together an album of all those stories and the fruits of his labor. On my visits to CH he always gave my children a picture of the Rebbe.
