Bialystoker Maggid

Rabbi Majrim (Meir) Hillel Rappaport, the Bialystoker Maggid, (1870?-1963)

Rabbi Majrim (Meir) Hillel Rappaport, the Bialystoker Maggid, was born in Brisk and received semicha (rabbinic ordination) from Rav Soloveitchik of Brisk.   He moved to Bialystok, where he was the official preacher the Bialystoker Shtot-Maggid, for fourteen years.  Family members report that when the Bialystoker Maggid visited Warsaw to speak, all the Jewish stores closed in order to enable everyone to hear him.
