I hope your father has a refuah s’hlaimah.
That being said, if you halachic questions, why aren’t you starting with your local rav?
(Apologies in advance if you did and he gave you this list to go and ask.)March 15, 2013 8:38 pm at 8:38 pm #990168
I spoke to my Roshei Yeshiva and he told me to learn 20 minutes a day of Musar. I did that for a month and it didn’t suffice. I was told by my brother to maybe ask some of todays greatest Gedolim. This is an issue more sensitive for any of the rebonim I know. allot of it is Medical questions and just a bracha and some advice.
Thanks for caring.March 15, 2013 8:41 pm at 8:41 pm #990169

I was addressing wolf’s implication that you need your rav’s permission to speak to a gadol.March 15, 2013 9:17 pm at 9:17 pm #990172
ok…March 15, 2013 10:13 pm at 10:13 pm #990173
I know your question is important to you, but many questions arent as difficult as you think and most Rabbanim can answer them.
Gedolim are expremly busy and are always either learning, fundraising or otherwise helping their fellow jews. Its best to minimize contact with them with other than most urgent ShailosMarch 15, 2013 10:21 pm at 10:21 pm #990174

Yes, but balance that with the fact that we gain from our contact with them.

I know people who ask every stupid question that any Rov can answer to Gedolim. This is actually something that should be taken to a Gadol not the eich maasrim bmelach questions!March 15, 2013 10:29 pm at 10:29 pm #990176WolfishMusingsParticipant
I was addressing wolf’s implication that you need your rav’s permission to speak to a gadol.
I did not imply that at all.
However, I would think that the proper way to go about things is to ask your local Rav. If he doesn’t know, then he can refer you to someone who does.
If you don’t think your Rav is capable of answering the question and will be too embarrassed, unwilling or unable to refer you to someone else whom he believes will be able to answer it, then perhaps you need a new Rav.

He asks his Rov first and his Rov can decide if its need to go to the Gadol or not.March 15, 2013 10:35 pm at 10:35 pm #990178
Or perhaps, if I have the oppurtunity to ask someone bigger than my rav, I should.
It’s if my rav would have an issue with this, that I would feel that I need a new rav.
Good Shabbos.March 17, 2013 12:21 am at 12:21 am #990179
Its not a matter if your Rav has a problem, its a matter of wasting the Gedols time.
Maybe your question isnt important, but if 500 people felt the same way and asked the Gadol a similar question when it was easier to ask a local rabbi, the Gadol would have more time for more pressing issues.
If you want a Bracha from a Gadol, Why not send a Kvitel to BMG and ask for a Bracha from Rav Kotler or Rav NewmanMarch 17, 2013 12:56 am at 12:56 am #990180
Thank You all for your help! I wanted the addresses I didn’t want to make a whole balei Gan over here. I am going through a very tough time and ruining my self esteem by telling me not to waste gedolim time. My questions are quite important especially some of the Medical Shailos. I don’t think it’s anyone here s place to be telling me what to deal with unless they are going to help me or are going through a similar situation.
Correct me if I am wrong please.March 17, 2013 1:43 am at 1:43 am #990181
You are quite correct.
You can try to reach some through their yeshivos (I’ve reached R’ Shmuel Kamentzky that way).

Maybe post his name for Tehillim, so we can all say a kapital or two for him.March 17, 2013 1:58 am at 1:58 am #990184
His name is Avrahm Eliezer zizman ben chaim moredechai. I am not sure how to post it on the site. I only have internet at home and not in the dorm so I am unfamiliar with the controls.March 17, 2013 2:10 am at 2:10 am #990185Torah613TorahParticipant
Inquirerr, are you aware that were all the addresses to be posted on the internet, this could cause the gedolim involved a lot of trouble? The internet is a very public place. It’s like posting their addresses on a billboard.
If you want access to Gedolim, it is safer to ask your Rav or Rosh Yeshiva to help you than to ask on the internet.March 17, 2013 2:54 am at 2:54 am #990186
Google is your friend. Write to them and ask for the Bracha

What bump? It’s a bad idea to post addresses online. We in the CR can say Tehilim. Gladly.March 18, 2013 11:59 am at 11:59 am #990191
If you really want to know their home addresses and phone number, Just do what everyone else does, go to the Website Intelius and search for the people you want.

I know you asked for gedollim but if you have medical shaylos i reccomend reading “the little book for big worries” by rabbi yy rubinstein. He lists many orginazations and people to contact for help in the back of the book.
By the way the book is geared towards the people dealing with a loved one being sick, and not just for the sick person themselves.
Rabbi YY Rubinstein is also very reachable and deals with these type of cases often as he unfortunately lost his wife from cancer and speaks a lot about dealing with suffering etc.
Best of luck and stay strong!December 1, 2013 12:53 pm at 12:53 pm #990198Shmelka.GoldmanParticipant
If you are ever in Philadelphia and you go to the mikvah on erev pesach most times Reb Sholom Kaminetzky is there. I was zoche to meet him that way.
