Years after the death of the righteous. His student Rabbi Pinto: “Talk for two hours with a child in kindergarten”

Rebbe Rabbi Josiah Pinto often tells of the miraculous figure of Maran Rosh Yeshiva Rabbi Shmuel Auerbach zt”l, Rosh Yeshiva of Ma’a lot HaTorah, whose sixth day of death fell at the beginning of the week

At the beginning of the week, the sixth day of death of Maran, Rosh Yeshiva Rabbi Shmuel Auerbach, zt”l, Rosh Yeshiva of Ma’a lot HaTorah and one of Israel’s greatest in the last generation.

His close disciple, Rebbe Rabbi Josiah Pinto, often recounts the miraculous character of the Rosh Yeshiva, his tremendous teachings, “his terrifying reverence and compassionate heart that cared for every needy and needy person in a rare and uncommon way,” as he put it.
Rabbi Pinto said in recent days: “We remember that he would ask us for very large sums of charity, and he would tell us very large sums, which were times when they were more than our strength. And a mysterious knower knows that for thirty years, everything he asked for was immediately fulfilled. And even several times we borrowed, and each time we were with great joy as a source of great booty.”

“And now when you see after three years,” Rabbi Pinto added of his rabbi, “that on Saturday night, the day of his death, what he left behind, seventy shekels.” Samuel in his generation as Moses in his generation” has the right of righteousness to ascend to heaven. And every soul that has no rest for its soul, this righteousness will be for the elevation of its soul.”

Watch a video from a lesson that took place in Morocco and was broadcast to thousands on social media, in which Rabbi Pinto recounted wonderful deeds that he saw in his teacher and rabbi. About the many months he would not leave the seminary, and would fall asleep on the bench from studying, about the tremendous justifications he gave to widows and orphans, and about his special reverence.

“Be holy, the angel of the Lord. It is impossible to describe his greatness in the Torah, in fear of God in the service of God,” the Rebbe said, adding: “He could sit with a child in kindergarten and talk to him for two hours. Great generation. Even a small child needs to be talked to.”
