The Ponevezher Rav, Rav Yosef Shlomo Kahaneman

The Wide-Awake Dreamer

In this episode, Gedalia and Rabbi Galinsky discuss the impact that the visionary Ponevezher Rav, Rav Yosef Shlomo Kahaneman, had on the Torah world, and how he brought Torah to the masses in Eretz Yisrael. They discuss the Rav’s revolt against the mussar movement in his early life, and how his stance on mussar changed over the course of his life. How did the Ponovezher Rav redeem 700 Jewish prisoners of war? When is a dreamer also a visionary? And they answer this important question: Are all the shtreimel wearers in Eretz Yisrael chassidish?
