The Rov (RYBS) on Forgetting of the Brain vs. Forgetting of the Heart

A correspondent forwarded this video (really audio with slides) to me. It is evidently a continuation of the one I posted a few days ago.

Again, Yiddish with good English subtitles.

Again, Powerful and moving.

Again, Much to be learned from it. 

About Torah, V'Hagisa Bo, and RYBS zt"l himself.




Again, I don't know the source or the occasion. 
Again, I don't think they matter that much.

Judaism and Racism Part 4: A Dialogue

A dialogue (in shiur) with an individual whose opinions I reject... This was supposed to be a regular shiur, but turned into a continuation of Judaism and Racism parts 2 and 3.

In the wake of the Jersey City and Monsey attacks, fourth part of an overview of Judaism and Racism. A Toras Dovid (former Ohr Somayach) shiur.

The Rov (RYBS) on Birchas HaTorah (etc.)

A correspondent forwarded this video (really audio with slides) to me. 

Yiddish with good English subtitles.

Powerful and moving.

Much to be learned from it about Torah, Ahavas Hatorah, and RYBS zt"l himself.



I don't know the source or the occasion. I don't think they matter that much.

Judaism and Racism Part 3

In the wake of the Jersey City and Monsey attacks, third part of an overview of Judaism and Racism. A Toras Dovid (former Ohr Somayach) shiur. Same shiur as part 2, the second part of that shiur. I would have spliced them, but I only was alerted to the fact that the shiur was in two files after posting. and sharing the first file.

Judaism and Racism Part 2



In the wake of the Jersey City and Monsey attacks, second part of an overview of Judaism and Racism. A Toras Dovid (former Ohr Somayach) shiur.

My grandfather, HG"R Dov Yehuda Schochet zt"l, in a a still from today's Siyum HaShas

My grandfather,
HG"R Dov Yehuda Schochet zt"l,
in a a still from today's Siyum HaShas at Met-Life Stadium.

It is at 3:47:35 in the video at https://thesiyum.org/

My grandfather is the second from left, the person sitting, with the bow tie.


I am not sure where the AIA got the picture, this is the original.


Yasher koach to my cousin Harav Chaim Schochet shlita,
for spotting the picture.

I do not know who the others in the picture are, but the odds are overwhelming that they were killed in the Holocaust.
This is the  entire clip l'zecher ha'Kedoshim, הי"ד זי"ע.
