They look at us like some never-before-seen tribe in the Amazon

$1800 gets you 2 double beds and boring speeches in Woodcliff Lake, NJ

Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik elected to the position of "Chairman of the National Executive" of the Agudath Israel of America (1940)

Listen from 17 minutes and so for like 2 minutes. Such foolishness. Rabbi Brog has an audience listening to his speeches? He doesn't really get his message across. I mean no disrespect, but it's poshut hard to listen to! Is he R' Avigdor Miller's grandson? Was this RAM's general view on Chassidus as well?

This is a grandson.

what exactly is your problem with brog? he's a bit of a clown but much easier to listen to and smarter than a shallow guy like jacobson for example. and he barely says anything about his view of chasidus so i don't know what it is to judge it.

my problem is his words here, nothing personal. As far as him not being shallow like YYJ; No comment. It does say something about you, though, Dovy....

Hmmm, the partisan in you coming out again??
Not taking a stand at all, just quite sure that you have judged the merits based on party affiliation not on merits, which there may well be

all I'm saying that to judge YYJ on his appearances at these fundraisers is to not know him.
