Description

The history of Yeshiva Torah Vodaath is presented by focusing on its dominant personalities. Why in both, Mir and Slobodka Yeshivot, tzitzit were not kissed during Kriyat Shema. Rav Yaakov Kamenetsky's role at Torah Vodaath; his move to and his influence on Monsey. Rav Pam and his relationship to the Lubavitcher Rebbe. The Shurin family. The thinking behind the selection of Rav Yitzchok Lichtenstein to be the position of a Rosh Yeshivah. The book "Hasidic Williamsburg," by George Kranzler. The only young man, at that time, who played baseball in the park wearing a kippah and with tzitzit hanging out. The Langer Case and Rav Goren; also Rav Yosef Soloveitchik. The survivor story and why the Israeli bus drivers signaled to him.
