Joseph I dont think i mentioned one word of my personal opinion on the issue just discussing it
I don’t think the point here is the atual ban. R’ Shorr is stating what his opinion is regarding the frum community at large and surely holds that other shuls/ batei medrash should implement this ban as well. This is his shita as Daas Torah.
The story included a hand written letter signed by rav schorr adressed to people wanting to learn in his shul with texting on their cell phone.
I agree that the practicle institution was only made for his kehila however, it is clear from the article the rav’s feelings towards texting in general- even out of the beis medrash.
although there are differences the article really got me thinking a little more about kids drinking on simchas torah
I read the article in mishpacha and although there are differences it deffinitely made me think twice about kids drinking on simchas torah
