Über den Autor: Harav Shamshon Rephael Weiss was born in 1910 in Emden Germany, to Rav Ahron and Yehudis Weiss. His mother was the daughter of Harav Hagaon Rav Yitzchak Schweiger, Av Bais Din of Tapolshin. Rav Weiss' father was his primary Rebbe, who taught him from Aleph Bais until Gemara and Tosafos. At the age of 19 Rav Weiss travelled to Mir where he remained for five years. It was there that his exceptional Torah personality developed. During his years in the Mir, Rav Weiss began his lifelong relationship with the Rosh Yeshiva Harav Eliezer Yehuda Finkel zt?l, being considered one of the Rosh Yeshiva?s closest talmidim and confidants. Rav Shimon Schwab zt?l told the family that the Rosh Yeshiva said that ?the whole burden and responsibility of Yeshivas Mir is all worth it to produce one talmid like Shamshon Rephael?. He was also extremely close to the Mashgiach, Harav Yeruchem Levovitz zt?l, whose Hashkafa and Mussar proved to be the seminal influence on Rav Weiss? own thinking. In 1934 Rav Weiss accepted the position as Seminar Rabbiner at the Wurzburg Jewish Teachers Seminary. Many of the students there came from assimilated backgrounds, but within a short time a good percentage became Baalei Teshuva. His influence was such that after graduation a number of his students enrolled in Yeshivas Mir instead of taking up teaching positions. In 1936 Harav Weiss married Leah Carlebach, daughter of one of Germany?s most distinguished Jewish families. Together they immigrated to the United States in 1939 where Rav Weiss held some of the most important leadership positions in the American Orthodox world: one of the founding presidents of Torah Umesorah, Executive Director of the Young Israel movement, and Executive Vice President of the Union of Orthodox Congregations. In these capacities he worked closely with the Gedolei Yisrael, amongst them Hagaon Harav Aharon Kotler zt?l. Harav Weiss considered himself first and foremost a talmid of Yeshivas Mir his whole life. Indeed he instructed that ?Talmid of Yeshivas Mir? should be the only accolade inscribed on his Matzeivah. His whole life he worked tirelessly for the yeshiva. He was Rav Eliezer Yehuda Finkel?s right hand man, and hosted him in his house for a few months during his visit to America. In 1972 Harav Weiss retired from his leadership positions, and moved to Eretz Yisroel to again become a talmid in his beloved Yeshivas Mir. During this time period he taught in Yeshiva Aish Hatorah the Israel Center and BJJ.
