New Community in Ramat Beit Shemesh for Bnei Aliya! (Update - Video Fixed)

Check out this video promoting the new community in Ramat Beit Shemesh. The city calls it "Ramat Hamishkafayim," but the people there who are working on developing it as a Torah/growth centered community are calling it "Ramat Haro'eh," after Rav Kook. Check out this video I just found on it.

R. Judah Mischel is involved and appears in the video. Anyone thinking of aliya, or finding a growing community in Israel for people who already live there, very worthwhile to check this out. Very exciting!

UPDATE (4/17/13): The host of this video apparantly took it down and put up a revised video in its place. This post is now updated with the new video. Kol tuv!

I Need to Know Who Gave This Shiur! - The Problem of the Generation

I need some help. There is a great shiur given by a Rav and I got the recording from R' Dovid Teitelbaum's blog, in a great post on speaking honestly about the problem of our generation.

You can get the shiur he linked to HERE. Can you listen to it because it cuts right to the core and talks about what Rav Weinberger's been crying about? he starts off by telling some heartrending stories that he has heard about as a Rav in Brooklyn I think. Can you please let me know who's giving this shiur? I think from something he says at the end that he has a very well known father in America at least as far back as the 1940's.  Sorry for not recognizing his voice. Thank you!
