Biographical Notes:

Rav Brus was born in Savin, Poland, his father was a Trisker chossid. He entered Pinsker Yeshiva at the age of 11 and soon after the Kaminetzer Yeshiva where he was among the youngest students of Rav Baruch Ber Lebowitz (1864-1939). Exiled to Siberia during the Holocaust, he miraculously survived and immigrated to the United States where the Rav became a member of the Kaminetzer Kollel on the Lower East Side. He was then invited to lecture at Yeshiva Beis HaTalmud, where he taught for more than 55 years. In addition, the Rav delivered regular lectures at the Kapishnietzer Beis Medrash in Boro Park. Rav Brus who authored Minchas Shaul was always at his gemara and never attended any public gatherings.

    Wow, I’m surprised that a Peekskill graduate would be on the internet, let alone have a website.
