The Ksav Yad was recently deciphered and edited by Yungerleit of Kollel Mayan Chai, and has been published in the Kollel’s most recent Kovetz (issue 6). It was published alongside other Pirsum Rishon’s from his writings: a Teshuva and Droshoh. 

The Kovetz also features a Nightly Chassidic Insight on the Ushpizin; a compilation from Talmidei HaBaal Shem Tov and various Chasidic Rebbes, for people in the community to learn and share at the Yom Tov table. 

The publication also includes a Teshuva from R’ Aaron Strashela, (from the most prominent Talmidim of the Alter Rebbe) as well as one of his Maamarim translated into English, and a Dvar Torah from Rav Kook’s Shabbos table.

Various Pilpulim and historical articles (in English, Hebrew and Russian) were submitted by the Kollel Yungeleit on the Yomim Tovim. Several Rabbonim also contributed, such as Rav Moshe Weinberger Shlit”a, Rav Yussie Zakutinsky Shlit”a; Rav Ben Tzion Frankel Shlit”a, and Rav Reuven Boshnak Shlit”a.

This Kovetz is the sixth one published by Kollel Mayan Chai. The Kollel was founded in honor of Ruchama Chaya Fruma Bas R’ Dov Pinchas A”H Bistritzky. It comprises a group of Lubavitcher Yungerleit, hosted by Rabbi Yoseph Vigler’s Mayan Yisroel center in Flatbush. Ably headed by the Rosh Kollel, Rabbi Menachem Kahn, the Yungerleit focus on studying the Piskei Dinim of the Rebbeim and their students. Several of the Avreichim also give back to the community in the form of regular chavrusas and shiurim.
