From Kletzk to Lakewood: The Yeshiva Moves to America

Posted May 27, 2011

This lecture will focus on the biography of Rabbi Aharon Kotler, the rosh yeshiva in Kletzk, Lithuania who escaped to the United States in 1941 and established the yeshiva in Lakewood, NJ. We will explore the story of each of these yeshiva and the reasons for the success of each one. Finally, we will examine the manner in which Rabbi Kotler was able to establish a yeshiva in America that rejected all the elements that he believed were dangerous in American and American Jewish culture.
