Two Witnesses to Connection of Rav Kanievsky ZT”L to Chasidut Breslov

Aside from the connection that the Prince of the Torah, Rav Chaim Kanievsky zt”l, had with Rav Berland shlit”a, he had a special connection with Chasidut Breslov.  Below are two testimonies about the connection of Rav Kanievsky with Chasidut Breslov.

Rav Binyamin Bergstein, the son of the Mashpia [spiritual mentor] Rav Shimon Bergstein zt”l relates:

“I was by him twenty years ago, and he said to me, ‘I testify in the name of the Chafetz Chaim: the excommunication which was on Chasidut from the Gaon [of Vilna] wasn’t intended about Breslov.’

“I told him that I feel in learning Likutey Moharan that I receive fear of Heaven.

“He answered, saying, ‘Certainly’ and even repeated this several times as if there’s nothing to talk about [i.e. there’s no doubt] regarding the greatness of Rabbeinu.”

Mayor of Beitar Ilit, Rav Meir Rubenstein relates:

“My friend Rav Avraham Pinzel, principal of Talmud Torah ‘Chochmat Shlomo’ sat with me several months ago in an event in the city of Beitar and attested before me that he saw with his own eyes Maran Rabbi Chayim zt”l study Likutey Moharan many times.”
