Description

The Rav's Zionism. Merger of Mizrachi and Hapoel HaMizrachi. Machloket in halachah: Being machmir doesn't always help make the decision. Satmar Rav and Agudas Yisroel and R' Kotler. Toilets on the train. R' Yitzchak Shmelkes, Bobover Rebbe and Heter Meah Rabbanim. A woman in Hungary with Kastner. DiMaggio and Engelberg. Satmar Rav's decision: Melakhah no longer done after sunset. Satmar Rav decides on US because of: 1) Partition of Palestine. 2) His visits to US yeshivot convinced him there is a future for Torah in the US (R' Teitz and first Israel election) 3) Weak Torah observance in Israel. Why Williamsburg? Boyaner Rebbe. Purchase of the building in Williamsburg. Shtreimels for his Chassidim not just for him. Rav Soloveitchik letter.
