The Enigma of Greatness - Maran Harav Yitzchok Hutner, Zt"l, Rosh Yeshivas Rabbenu Chaim Berlin.

The great Gaon, Maran Harav Hutner, Zt"l was and IS STILL the Rebbe of thousands in Eretz Yisroel and in Chutz L'aretz.

He contributed a new depth to Mussar and Machshava. That depth was part of his inner being and not a strategy for inspiring students.

His Seforim "Pachad Yitzchok" are textbooks of riveting concepts in Machshava. But more important he was a text "Person" of the depth of his thought.

But his depth did not limit itself to Machshava and Mussar. His concern for his Talmidim, his understanding of people was so unique, so profound .... that when a person would speak to him they would feel the piercing perception of a Gadol B'yisroel.

His Yartzeit is on the twentieth of Kislev.

Known as the "Iluy of Warsaw" Maran Harav Hutner, zt"l wrote his first Sefer on Rambam Hilchos Neziros which was decorated by an unusual Haskama from Maran Harav Chaim Ozer, zt"l who declared "Ashrei Yoladeto".

Were you aware of the fact that the original Kovno print of the sefer was also "decorated" with Haskomos from the D'var Avrohom AND Rav Kook (yes THAT Rav Kook)?!?

The copy uploaded on to was obviously doctored as page two leads with
מכתבי הגאונים plural and then has only the RCO haskoma with the next page blank.
