About R' יהודה מאיר אברמוביץ


יהודה מאיר אברמוביץ (ר"ח מנחם אב תרע"ד; 24 ביולי 1914, לודז', פולין – ב' באייר ה'תשס"ז; 20 באפריל 2007) היה יושב ראש ועד הפועל העולמי של אגודת ישראל בין השנים 1980–2007 והמזכיר הכללי של אגודת ישראל בזמן הקמת מדינת ישראל וחבר הכנסת מטעמה בכנסות השביעית, השמינית והתשיעית.


Yehuda Meir Abramowicz (Hebrew: יהודה מאיר אברמוביץ‎‎, born 24 July 1914, died 20 April 2007) was an Israeli rabbi and politician. He served as general secretary of Agudat Yisrael, which he represented in the Knesset from 1972 until 1981, and as Deputy Speaker of the Knesset between 1977 and 1981. One of his achievements was the introduction of legislation requiring drivers of vehicles to wear seat belts.

Abramowitz was born in Konstantynów Łódzki in the Russian Empire (today in Poland) to Tzvi Yitzchok Abramowicz, who had been the shochet for Rav Chanokh Heynekh HaKohen Levin, the Rebbe of Alexander, and had been a chosid of the Chidushei Harim of Ger. When he was just nine months old his father died; he was orphaned of his mother as a teenager. Shortly afterwards, he was accepted as a student in the prestigious Yeshivas Chachmei Lublin. When Rabbi Meir Shapiro introduced the Daf Yomi, he dispatched the students of his yeshiva to deliver Daf Yomi lectures. Abramowicz was assigned the daily lecture at the synagogue of the Chozeh of Lublin; attendance grew rapidly until there were fifty participants each day.
