  1. “For my father, being sent to the Mir was like going straight from elementary school to Harvard. He didn’t have the skills to learn. The roshei yeshivah at the Mir sent him to Rabbi Elchonon Wasserman who had a mechinah in the famous Ohel Torah Yeshiva of Baranovitch, in White Russia. My father learned at Baranovitch for a year and a half, and then returned to the Mir to learn for the next four years. By Fagie Rosen (nee Scheinerman), ” (from the ou.org)
