Rabbi Soloveitchik (Vol. 10, Issue 2)

Reports have been circulating about Yeshiva to the effect that Rabbi Soloveitchik has been offered the presidency of the Chicago Yeshiva. Whether or not these reports are but rumors, they deserve comment, for even the possibility of his loss to us is something to cause consternation.

Rabbi Soloveitchik is one of our outstanding Roshe Hayeshiva. His presence has afforded the students a type of Talmudic scholarship which cannot be readily found elsewhere. The respect his learning commands in the circle of Orthodox Jewry has undoubtedly added to the reputation of this institution. 

Our earnest wish is that he stay with us; may his wish coincide with ours.
