  1. Give the man a break! He’s over 90 years old (born in 1924!), and clearly not in a good state of health that he should have to oversee administrative issues like kashrus and marriage registration. The government would do well to allow such great people to retire respectably, while they still have their faculties, and leave these administrative issues to those with more strength and time.
