reference to the plan to institute a Beit Midrash where
issues of Halacha and its practical implications will be
clarified through uncompromising group efforts...
Shmuel Jakobovits has singled out some of the finest
Torah scholars, outstanding in their ability to
penetrate and apply Halachic sources, and elicited their
consent to join together under one roof – prominent,
senior men with younger Halachic masters – in order to
realize this vitally important plan.
made the acquaintance of Rabbi Jakobovits, in the course
of numerous discussions, I can attest that he complies
fully with the traditions of the preeminent Torah
authorities, that he seeks their advice about all
matters pertaining to this Beit Midrash, and that he has
the proper, responsible approach, according with the
rules of Halachic interpretation that have been handed
down to us from one generation to the next…
I call upon you... to take part in establishing and
supporting this Beit Midrash…"
