ITRI "Wikileaks"

We wrote about Rabbi Elefant some ten years ago. 
Check it out. 
Quite the character, it seems.

This screams to be taken with a grain of salt, but this is really great stuff. As always, you're amazing!

Marc Shapiro has in the past published some excerpts.

Hirshel, what's the connection between this document and RNK? The timing can't be a coincidence.

So what's the story?

How did this emerge recently? I also received that this week, but I heard from others that it was available for years.

The writings are mainly interesting for someone who knew him. I did, slightly, and I really enjoyed it.

This won't get published officially, and there is no purpose in officially publishing them. But they are certainly interesting.

Perhaps the long lost Chaim Berlin Tragedy can fill us in on the relationship between Rav Elephant and Rav Hutner.
