Hagaon HaRav Gershon Edelstein, the Rosh Yeshiva of Ponavezh, delivered a Shiur to thousands of people on Chol Hamoed, at the new Vishnitz Bais Medrash in Bnei Brak.

The Rosh Yeshiva has never before attended the Tish of a Rebbe or a Chassidish event.

The Chanukah Habayis for the Vishnitz Bais Medrash, which cost around $55 million to build, was recently held.

The Bais Medrash holds approximately 6,000 people.

  1. Hagaon HaRav Edelshtein Shlita actually learnt as a Talmid in Lubavitch by HaRav Shneur Z”L.
    HaRav Edelshtein would come visit his Rebbe in Kfar Chabad before Yom Tov, thus this would not be his first interaction with Chasidim….

  2. While it is indeed historic, its still a bit sad that there is such distancing between the Litvish and Chasiddish mosdos that it warrants a YWN headline to commemorate the event. Hopefully, these types of interactions will become more frequent as we need real achdus within klal yisroel, without either side feeling threatened about compromising its hashkafah.

    Having learnt in Ponovez and as a Talmud of rabbi Gershon I’ve never heard he learned in chabad perhaps you are confusing him with Rabbi Berel Provarsky
