Item Description:

When the dispute between the mussar movement and the rabbinate was at its height, Yeshivas Bais Yitzchok, the forerunner of Yeshivas Kaminetz, opened as a competitor to the Slobodka yeshiva and its mussar approach. Rabbi Wein depicts the years of competition and the wisdom by which it was ultimately defused. Uprooted by World War I, its rabbis struggled to rebuild in the Ukrainian town of Kaminetz, only to be uprooted again by World War II. Yet like all of the yeshivos in this series, both the institution and its methods live on.
