Gedolim were recently added to both the Moetzes Gedolei Hatorah and Torah Umesorah’s Gedolim Board. At last nights Agudath Yisreol’s 85th annual dinner it was made public for the first time that there were two new Gedolim added to the Moetzes Gedolei Hatorah. The two Gedolim are Rav Dovid Feinstein Shlita & Rav Malkiel Kotler Shlita (Rosh Yeshivas Lakewood). And at the recent Torah Umesorah Convention it was announced that Rav Avohom Chaim Levin Shlita (Rosh Yeshivas Telsh Chicago) was appointed Yoshev Rosh of the Torah Umesorah Gedolims Board.
Which rabbonim are on the Gedolim Board at the Torah U’mesorah?
who decides on who gets added to the Moetzes?
Boruch Hashem, we are never short of new Gedolim.
These are some of the Gedolim of our generation, lets look up to them & teach our children to respect all talmiday chachomin with utmost respect whether we are from the same sect or not.
why isn’t there any sephardi gedolim on it like Rabbi Raful and Rabbi Maslaton?
I was thinking the same, do the sefredim have their own Torah Umesorah organization?
i think there is a sfardi rav (i think harav raful) on the agudahs nesius and the agudah has sefardi rabonim speak at their events ( such as the siyum hashas…)
I ALSO THINK THAT THEY SHOULD PUT A SEFARDI ON THE BOARD . I THINK THEY SHOULD PUT HORAV M MASLATON SHLITA . HORAV MASLATON WOULD BE A PERFECT ADDITON TO THE BOARD
Reb Dovid is a giant of Torah, who is a “Unov Meod”. His father Raskebeha”g Reb Moshe Feinstein ZT”L would say “Vos Zugt Reb Dovid?”
(What does Reb Dovid Say?). Baruch Hashem that he finally agreed to be where he should have been a long time ago.
Kovod HaTorah is allowing the Gedolim to make their own decisions on matters such as these without the rest of us inserting our own brilliant two cents.
As a talmid, I am surprised that Reb Dovid shlitta accepted its so not him
R. Dovid’s appointment is a generation overdue. The other one is a generation early.
