Shiur given on a bus in Moscow. Rabbi Schachter discusses the David Baron Gunzburg collection of sefarim. In what style was the Misilas Yesharim first written? How was the peirush on the Yerushalmi, written by Rabbi Yitzchak Eizik Krasilschikov, the Poltava Gaon, smuggled out of Russia? Who edited this work? Can one fulfill a mitzva by learning it's laws, when one cannot fulfill the mitzva itself? Why did the Poltava Gaon start his work with masechta Shevi'is? What was the last sefer printed, under the communists, in Russia? What mistakes are in the Siddur Hashalom? How does one deal with no tzeis hachochavim? Who was Rav Yitzchak Blazer's teacher? Why does Chabad change the nusach of shuls they take over, to nusach Ha'Ari?
