    while you are there on the ground, am listening to the podcasts of headlines [ http://podcast.headlinesbook.com/ ] , and it seems there is a disagreement as to r steinman’s tenor on nahal haredi. Hager from LA says pro. a satmar activist on the show says there is a letter saying it was ok only for chayavei karet. maybe you can get to the bottom line….

    • Moving 8000 miles hardly makes me an expert. But even without the geographical proximity, I would not believe anyone’s claim to have a letter from a gadol. (I recall a website through which you could key in text, and then select which signatures you wished to append to it. Really.) If someone showed me a letter, I would pay no attention to it unless verified by experts.

    I personally witnessed this. Someone brought Rav Hutner ZTL a Kol Koreh, a proclamation from the Moetzes. Before signing it, the Rosh Yeshiva asked him, “Were you there when Rav Moshe signed it?”

    R.Adlerstein has been a Sabra for 5 minutes and bang goes the tie!

    • Not true. It took a full day. And I still wear one to shacharis, although I’m the only one other than a frum Columbia prof who is a regular

      • BF says:

        Ironically, I know a rabbi here in Jerusalem who wears a tie all day long, with the sole exception of shacharis. Of Chasidic origin, he claims an aversion to ties but that his place in society requires him to wear one; at Shacharis (k’vasikin) he is free to be his true self. Of course, from a purely halachic perspective Rabbi Adlersterstein’s practice would seem to be more correct.

    Find fulfillment, inner peace & hatzlacha in the holy land. Combine your & Rena’s ahavas Yisroel with ahavas haeretz coupled with torah learning & nachat from the children.

    Yakov & I ate full of kosher envy.. 💕💕❤️❤️🇮🇱🇮🇱

    you are now in a place where the greatest academic shiurim are given. if you attend shiurim by any number of professors, i am curious how your attitude towards academic talmud and/or the history of halakha will be affected.
