Bobov makes history: The Bobover Rebbe Rav Mordechai Dovid Unger Shlita has assumed the role of Rosh Yeshiva, in Mesivta Eitz Chaim D’Bobov.
Today Monday parshas Noach, at the usual seudas rosh chodesh, the Rebbe Shlit”a announced that in the coming days he will also assume the position of Rosh Yeshiva and will deliver shiyurim for the two highest classes three times a week.
Before he accepted the mantle of Rebbe, the Rebbe Shlita served for thirty years as a Reish Mesivta in Mesivta Eitz Chaim D’Bobov, where his deep and clear shiyurim was made understandable to all. Also after he had already assumed the mantle as Rebbe he continued giving his renowned lomdisha shiyurim to thousands of his Chasidim on every Chol Hamoad, and also from time to time in his own Yeshiva and other Yeshivas.
In the past few years, Reb Moshe Bromberg Shlita had served as Rosh Yeshiva, but now that he opened a yeshiva of his own “Yeshivas Nesivas Hatalmud”, it was decided by the Hanholas HaYeshiva to ask the Rebbe to come and serve as Rosh Yeshiva.
As soon as the news became known among the hundreds of bocherim in the Yeshiva, they were overcome with emotion, and became very excited that they now will be zoicheh to bathe in the light of his Torah, which is world renowned among those who cherish the Torah.
Today, during the seudas rosh chodesh, the Rebbe Shlita gave a droshas hisorerus for the pesicha (opening) of the new zman. There the Rebbe Shlit”a announced that he accepts to serve as rosh yeshiva, and will come to the Yeshiva three times a week to give the shiyurim in the heichol haYeshiva for the higher classes.
At this opportunity, the Rebbe Shlita also cautioned the bocherim that all sedorim of the Yeshiva will remain as it was without any changes, and that the bocherim should continue to show respect towards the hanholei haYeshiva; and that “There is a time for Torah and a time for Chasidus”.
