  1. It is said that Reb Moshe told the Frierdiker Rebbe that he can’t accept the position because if he leaves Tiferes Yerushalayim, it may close.

  2. The interviewer is one of his sons at Rabbi Greenblatt’s home in Memphis .
    He was very knowledgeable in the history of the litveshe Gedolim .

  3. Really interesting interview, thanks for posting!
    My uncle A”h who traveled a lot for business & visited many Gedolim used to tell me, “Chabad is connected to the whole world bechlal & the ‘olam hatorah’ befrat”. As a boy raised in a litvish household & school I never believed him & thought he was joking. As I grew up however I relised he was right!
    I’m very curious about the Lubavitcher Roshei Yeshivos mentioned, Harav Gustman & Rav Mentlik. I’ve never heard of them before & I’m curious do they have any sefarim of their Shiurim?!

    1. part of the reason (y everyone is somehow related to chabad) is bc when the Maskilim & then communism came must yeshivos fell in thier hands… chabad faired way better…

      PLUS we are Litvish after all (the Alter Rebbe was referred by his friends as “the Litvak)
