Thinking Jew –

Really? I did not remeber the exact story, or perhaps it was told wrong, so thanks for clearing it up. I have a hard time believeing that R’ Shapiro (or anyone of his stature) would say something like that, but I guess if you’re quoting it in a forum that would correct you if you were wrong, I must accept the story as you note it.

But it really surprises me. The gedolim of yesteryear measured everything with sensitivity AND halacha, so this comes as a real surprise.

Guess I learn something new every day (even if it goes against mu grain.. guess that’s part of the learning curve)
