A man who was said to be "mentally ill" tried to attack Rav Aharon Yehuda Leib Shteinman, shlita, on Sunday night (Oct. 2) after the start of Rosh Hashana, the first of the Jewish high holy days, and the start of the Jewish new year.
The man was arrested by Israel Police.
Rabbi Shteinman, born 1912-1914 in Brest, is the Rosh Yeshiva (dean) of the Ponevezh Yeshiva L'Tzi'irim, and is regarded as the generation's leading hareidi-religious posek (Jewish Torah authority) in the non-Hasidic Lithuanian stream of Judaism, since the passing of Rabbi Yosef Shalom Eliyashiv, zt'l. He lives in Bnei Brak.
