Tourbites: Yeshivas Chachmei Lublin



Yeshivas Chachmei Lublin was the grand vision of its founder Rav Meir Shapiro. Following a long fundraising campaign, it opened in a grand ceremony in 1930. Rav Meir Shapiro set the goal of the yeshiva with its very name Chachmei Lublin. This was to restore the crown of glory to the city of Lublin, which had been a Torah center for centuries. 
The Torah legacy would be continued by creating a grandiose edifice which would be an honor for Torah and those who study it, and would contain a Bais Medrash, dormitory facilities, kitchen, dining room, an impressive library, a mikvah and even a model of the Bais Hamikdash. Though Rav Meir Shapiro tragically passed away at the age of 46 in 1933, Chachmei Lublin continued to flourish under the able leadership of Rav Aryeh Tzvi Frommer, the Kozhligover Rav. Though most of the yeshiva students and faculty ultimately were killed during the Holocaust, the legacy of Yeshivas Chachmei Lublin remains until this very day.
