The Rav and The Rebbe: Rabbi Hershel Schachter Recounts (2007)


The Rav and The Rebbe: Two great Jewish leaders meet. Rabbi Hershel Schacter [1917–2013], former president of the Rabbinical Council of America, recounts the story of he accompanying the Rav, Rabbi Yosef Ber Soloveitchik [1903–1993], to visit the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson [1902–1994], in 1980. (Note: This is the same Rabbi Schacter who, as an Army Chaplain, participated in the liberation of Buchenwald concentration camp on April 11, 1945; and stayed on for months administering to the material and spiritual needs of the Jews. He led Pesakh and Shavuot services. He left the army with the rank of captain.) For more on the friendship between the Rav and the Rebbe, see [here] and [here] and [here].
