עיה"ת איז "מקבל מרות" פונעם גדול הדור ושר התורה... צי ר' מלכיאל וויל צי ער וויל נישט
I've been made to understand that the visit this week of Reb Aryeh Finkel, son חז"פ, grandson of Reb Lazer Yudel, and Roshiveh of Mir-Brachfeld is not so poshut. Despite the grapes and glass of tea it wasn't what Reb Malkiel had in mind to be doing that day. And it wasn't his choice in guest speaker. But he too had to bow to the folks at Hazon Ish 5 --- not that RALS actually is at the helm of this באנדע, they just use him. But what I don't understand is why they sent a B-list (excuse the expression) gadol over here. Yes, he's elderly, but still. No REAL star power. Then again, Reb Moshe Hillel Hirsh is there every second week. Reb Berel Povarski is not welcome there, (הערה לאח"ז - at least he wasn't until this week...) and Reb Aron Leib is too old. That leaves whom? Reb Dov Yaffe? nah. So RAF was the only choice. They already used the Satmar Rebbe... LOL.
