This site was first launched on February 23rd, 2011 (18th Adar I, 5771). It was inspired by R’ Yermiyahu Abramov – a dear friend of the Schuster’s – and chevrusa of Reb Meir’s for the past 15 years.
www.RebMeirSchuster.org was developed and paid for entirely by friends and talmidim of Reb Meir and has accepted no institutional funding. While site content is authored and edited by our members, it is periodically reviewed by Rebbetzin Esther Schuster and R’ Yirmiyahu Abramov (see haskamos tab) to assure accuracy.
It is our hope that this site – in some small way – may give continued voice to Reb Meir and the important work that he began. May we all be zoche to continue his work in the way we live our lives.
The core group which created the content and style for this site, and provided the chizuk for its completion, includes the following:
