Join Meir Panim’s campaign to “light up” Chanukah for families in need.
We join Klal Yisroel in mourning the death of Rabbi Avigdor Miller, zt”l, one of the foremost marbitzei Torah of our time. He possessed a rock-solid faith which was reflected in a signature message of uncompromising fealty to the Will of the Creator. A Talmudic scholar of prodigious accomplishment and exemplar of mussar study, Rabbi Miller pioneered in bringing to millions of Jews an exceptionally rational pathway through age-old philosophical conundrums and had much to do with the remarkable resurgence of faith of the last fifty years.
Rabbi Miller passionately embraced the world as the work of the Creator and in the manner of the scientific researcher, continually sought to reveal its links to the Divine.
With an all-encompassing interest in the Torah and uncommon powers of explication, Rabbi Miller emerged as a peerless teacher and guide. His regal bearing, flinty integrity and distinctive oratory and writing enabled him to inspire generations of Jews.
Perhaps as a symbol of his particular relevance to this time and place, in addition to his monumental volumes, Rabbi Miller’s words will continue to resonate in the countless tapes that survive him.
May his memory be for a blessing.

It seems to us that while the Jewish entitlement to the land of Israel transcends the Holocaust, the Jewish experience during that tragic time is the most solid of foundations for these “national rights.”
