WATCH: Yanuka’s Response: “Why Is Kever Rashbi Closed Davka On Lag B’Omer?”

HaGaon HaRav Shlomo Yehudah Beeri, known as HaYanuka [הינוקא] due to his incredible grasp of Kol Hatorah Kulo at a young age, held a hadlakah on Lag B’Omer in the Old City of Jerusalem with thousands of people in attendance, Kikar H’Shabbat reported.

The Yanukah spoke before the hadkalah and asked: “Why is it that in recent years, davka Kever Rashbi is closed on Lag B’Omer?”

“We know that everything that happens is due to the Hashgachah Pratis of Hashem Yisbarach,” the Yanukah continued. “We need to try to understand what Hashem is trying to hint to us in all the events of  the world. Perhaps the gates are closed because the generation is so weak and forgets what Rebbe Shimon said, that ‘it’s better for a person to cast himself in a burning furnace rather than embarrass his friend in public.'”

“We’re obligated to do whatever we can to remember the saying of Rebbe Shimon and be extremely careful not to embarrass any person and not to be makpid with any person. To be careful not to embarrass anyone – even small children, anyone – the elderly, teens, men or women. To be extremely careful about Kavod HaBriyos – which is the most lofty and important matter.”

  1. how come there are never any gedolim (big rabanim or roshei yeshiva) in the crowds by any of his events. just pointing out the obvious…

  2. It is closed since more people will be there on Lag B’Omer than on other days. And our enemies thirst for Jewish blood will make this a desirable target.

  3. Habachur hachashuv. So I’m going to listen to the tzadik and I’m not going to tell you what I think about your comment.

  4. @habachur hachashuv you obviously don’t have much exposure look at his events you will see gedoley yisrael of all ages sitting before him and drinking his words like a 5 year old from his rebbi.

    This man is beyond anyone we have seen in hundreds of years.

  5. “habachur hachashuv”, ever heard the expression, “if you don’t have anything good to say, don’t say anything?” If you really want to be “chashuv” maybe start learning Hilchos Lashon Hara

    I learnt Chofetz Chaim a few times and don’t see an Issur regarding pointing out an obvious (especially regarding a Manhig B’yisroel – as per the Chazon Ish – ).
    Though I don’t know Habochur nor what his intentions are, I believe he’s not trying to denigrate him. Rather, he’s pointing out an unfortunate phenomenon. We’re living in an “Internet” age where (besides many believing whatever they see/read) a website can create a Gadol Hador. This was NEVER the way. As R’ Avigdor Miller explained. How does one know who the “top doctor “ is? You start off with the small doctors and work your way up the ladder. So too with a Gadol Hador. You ask Yeshiva bachurim then yungeleit then rabbeim etc. etc.
    NOT through Tom Dick and Harry on the internet. Nor from ANY site.
    On a personal note, from everything I’ve heard he is a great Talmid Chochom, Yiras Shomayim and a great Anov.
    However, before accepting him as YOUR (or MINE) Gadol, Habochur’s question is a fair one.

  7. habachur hachashuv – He is always surrounded by Gedolim. Ignorant fool.Just look at YouTube.There is one where the Rosh Yeshiva of Mir Yerushalayim calls him the Kesher between the Ribbono Shel Olam and Am Yisroel who has 100% Ruach HaKodesh. If you only had a brain like the Straw Man would sing.

  8. …and to prove my point, along comes BERISH and teaches us that in order to determine who our true Gedolim are we need to watch YouTube.
    Hilarious 😂 hilarious 😂

  9. This segment begins with the Chofetz Chaim informing us of how terrible it is to speak loshon hora about a talmid chacham (Torah scholar).

    Obviously, we are obligated to honor Torah scholars, and speaking loshon hora is certainly not according them honor. But there is something even more serious at stake. When one speaks loshon hora about a talmid chacham, the underlying message is that the scholar’s flaw disqualifies him from rendering a sound opinion. The speaker of loshon hora is actually saying, “We don’t have to listen to him.” The influence of his wicked words may cause others to say to themselves: “Why should we seek the opinion of this rav? He’s not great enough to come up with the right answer. We might as well just figure things out for ourselves.”

  10. @kinsler,
    well put.

    I don’t know much about him, other than (wether people like it or not), his crowd that are mainly know to go to him, are not (mainly or in large part) frum Bnei Torah, unlike others like R Meilech Biderman and others.
    That might not be significant in itself, but that, coupled with the fact that he is a ‘youtube’ rabbi, has no real (known of) semicha/heter HoRa’a or being a plain talmid of a known gadol/Posek/rav etc, which makes me very wary as to from where he and his hashkafot come from.

    There are many phony ‘chachamim’, ‘yanukahs’, ‘mekubalim’ etc, and whilst I am not accusing him of being one definitely speaking, people are right in being wary of him in line of the above……

    Religious Jews as @kinsler says, don’t take their hashkafot from youtube rabbis, from ’emotional lag ba’omer gatherings’, or the like, it is from the Gedolim as Rav Avigdor Miller outlined..
