The Kaliver Rebbe is an Auschwitz survivor. The Nazi - Killer Dr. Joseph Mengele did medical experiments on him and due to these medical sufferings, the Kaliver Rebbe cannot grow a beard.


  1. first of all, this may not be accurate.

    second of all he does have a smlal beard.

    third of all, i dont think such information should be posted. imagine he or osmeone in his family reads this?

    would you want someone to post something of your private medical history?

  2. B"H

    First of all, it is accurate. Haredi sites have been writing a lot about the Rebbe's Holocaust experience. And the Rebbe talks about it himself:

    Furthermore, his history is very well - known and not a secret !

  3. This great man's history is not a medical condition of his own. It's the result of his terrible suffering by the notrious Rasha, Yimach Shimo!
    We should all look up to the fact that even with all that he went through, he overcame it. May we all have such Koichos!
