Detail Description

Three lectures delivered by three prominent Roshei Yeshivot at the assembly of disciples of the Yeshiva Kenesset Yisro'el in Slabodka. Yeshivas Knesses Yisro'el was a yeshiva located in the town of Sloboda Vilyampolskaya in Kovno Governorate of Russian Empire (now Vilijampolė in Kaunas, Lithuania). It functioned from the late 19th century until World War II. From the second half of the 19th century, Kovno became a center of Jewish cultural activity in Lithuania. Prominent there were R. Yitzchak Elchanan Spektor (the "Kovner Rav"; officiated 1864-96);  and R. Israel Isidor Elyashev. The yeshivot of Slobodka, in particular the Or HaChaim yeshivah founded by R. Tzvi Levitan about 1863 (also known as Yeshivas R' Hirschel), attracted students from other countries and were headed by noted scholars. R. Nosson Tzvi Finkel, also known as "Der Alter fun Slabodka" (The Elder of Slabodka), who had also founded several kollelim in the area, served as mashgiach ruchani and introduced Musar ideals there.
