Description

Rabbi Avigdor Miller was born in 1908 in Baltimore, where he attended both public and Jewish schools and he also had private tuition with a personal Rebbe.

At the age of 14 he enrolled in Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary (REITS) in New York, and later in Yeshiva University. where he simultaneously received his s’micha and BA.

Among his mentors was Rav Yaakov Yosef Herman (of “All for the Boss” fame) who encouraged him to travel to Europe and study in one of the Lithuanian Yeshivos.

He was a student at the Slabodka Yeshiva from 1932 until 1938, when he sensed the imminent disaster for European Jewry and returned to the States.

While in Slobodka he met and learned with many of the generation’s gedolim and future gedolim.

He returned with his European born  wife and children and took up rabbinic positions in Boston and then in Brooklyn.

He served (often simultaneously) as the mashgiach in Rav Chaim Berlin Yeshiva, as a congregation rabbi, and as a community leader.

He was the innovator of “Torah for the Masses” by recording his weekly lectures and making the tapes available to the public.

He spoke on a wide range of Torah topics, and his very conservatives and often controversial views came through strongly.

He was vehemently opposed to the popular Liberal movements, and said so without mincing his words.

He also published many seforim in English and Hebrew, and had a wide following around the world.

Many of his  talmidim had in fact never met R’ Miller, yet they considered him as their Rav.

He died at the age of 93 in Brooklyn and was buried in Eretz Yisroel.
