Beit Midrash-The Beginning of the Radomsker Print E-mail
Written by Machberes Avodas Hashem   

Yahrtzeit-Story-RadomskerThe 29th of Adar is the Yahrtzeit of Rav Shlomo Rabinowitz of Radomsk, first Rebbe of the Radomsk dynasty: Rabbi Meir of Apt once saw among his visitors a youth from Vlostzov. He called his companions aside and bade them never to bring the young man again. The next time the company from Vlostzov were ready to leave for the Rabbi's home, the youth wish to join them, but they forbade. Finally, they consented to permit him to travel with them as far as a village near Apt. They continued on their way and soon arrived at the home of Rabbi Meir. The latter inquired whether the youth was with them; the visitors explained the reason for his absence.

 

“Do you know why I opposed is coming to me as a Chassid?” said the Rabbi. “It is because he is a greater tzaddik than I. When you can boast of such a youth in your native city, it is absurd for you to come to me.”

The youth was compelled to become a Rebbe, and won fame as the Radomsker. (Bet Shlomo, Page 3)

I am more impressed by Rabbi Meir's open acknowledgement that the young Radomsker, "is a greater Tzaddink than I," than I am with the young Radomsker's greatness.
