  • About Steve Brizel


    1. This is over two hours of video, including Dr. Twersky, Rabbis Schachter, Brander and Twersky.

    2. Note also the event held in Israel available here:
      Maimonides School alumni and friends in Israel were instrumental in a program commemorating the 20th yahrzeit of Rabbi Dr. Joseph B. Soloveitchik, zt”l, in Jerusalem April 10. Watch addresses by Rabbi Mayer Lichtenstein, the Rav’s grandson, and his mother, Rebbetzin Tova Lichtenstein.

    3. Note that the “entire program” link is to the four “multiple faces” presentations and R’ Twersky with some introductory and linking material, not to the rest.

    4. Also:

      Yom Iyun Harav Soloveitchik – In memory of the Rav’s 20th Yartzeit 18-Nisan
      Held on 3-Nisan, 14-March-2013 at Beit Knesset Ohel Ari Raanana

      Yeshivat Chovevei Torah Rabbinical School invites the entire community to a special Erev Limud – Night of Study – commemorating the twentieth yahrtzeit of Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik zt”l

    5. I had intended to download some of these. Thanks, Steve, for making jot so easy.

    6. Thanks Steve for the public service.

    7. Steve, If you haven’t heard Rn’ Tovah Lichtenstein’s presentation, you should. She quotes your favorite line from R. Besdin.

    8. Joseph Kaplan-thanks for the link!
