This evening two pipe bombs were found outside the home of Hagoen R’ Chaim Shlomo Leibowitz Shlita in Meah Shearim, Yerushalayim. The bomb squad was called to defuse the bombs & police are calling this a major escalation in the bitter Machlokes over who is the Rosh Yeshiva of Ponavez.
R’ Chaim Shlomo Leibowitz Shlita was appointed Rosh Yeshiva of Ponavez on September 27, 2006 as was reported on Yeshivaworld. He was the Rosh Yeshiva of Kaminetz for the last 45 years and is an Einekle of R’ Boruch Ber Liebowitz ZATZAL.
This has got to be one of the most upsetting story’s which I have heard in recent times. Why aren’t there any Hafganos to be Moicha for Kavod Hatorah?! Where are all the “Hafganah goers” now?
