Does anybody know any great gedolim who accept letters? Haskafic questions-like any big Masgichim or so?October 12, 2012 6:34 pm at 6:34 pm #899549shlishiMemberOctober 12, 2012 6:56 pm at 6:56 pm #899550WhiteberryMember
You don’t need a “great gadol”, you need a rebbe. If he doesn’t know, he will ask his rebbe.October 12, 2012 7:23 pm at 7:23 pm #899551
shlishi-Thanks but not really my question I need to ask a important question in Haskafa….
Whiteberry- I am not really comfortable asking my rebbeOctober 12, 2012 7:55 pm at 7:55 pm #899553
Like if I send Reb Matisyau Salomon a letter will he answer?October 12, 2012 8:08 pm at 8:08 pm #899554truthsharerMember
It depends if you’re not challenging him politely on something he said. If you grovel, then you might get a response.
At least that is what happened in one famous case quite a few years back when someone politely mailed him a letter asking for clarification on something he said. That person is still waiting for a response.October 14, 2012 5:18 am at 5:18 am #899556lebidik yankelParticipant
Its not if to grovel or not to grovel. Neither he nor anyone else that has their hands full have time to debate. So if there is a sincere asking of clarification it may be forthcoming. Usually these things come out as challenges. A challenge will be ignored.
I have had success with Rav Zalman Nechemia Goldberg, Rav Chaim Kaniefsky and Rav Moshe Mordechai Karp of Kiryat Sefer among others.October 15, 2012 2:11 pm at 2:11 pm #899557WIYMember
I know of a great website where you can ask any questions you have on Hashkafah. Check out jewswithquestions dot com. The Rav who runs it is Rabbi Shapiro he is a very chashuva Rav in Bayswater and he happens to be a big buki in matters of hashkafa.
(Mods I took out the link lets see if you post it now, Im not sure if the link was the problem although I dont see why it should be. Every frum Jew on the planet who uses internet should know that there is such a website out there where he can ask any question in Hashkafa and get an answer from a Frum Rabbi who knows what he is talking about. Maybe you have something against Jews getting real answers and prefer they ask their questions about science and chazal and all that to some of the koifrim that use your site?)
