R' Elyashiv Criticizes Banners

R' Elyashiv criticized rabbonim for opposing a book because they hadn't read it. That's what Krum is reporting. The letter, by R' Aharon Feldman was printed in Israeli papers. In all fairness, R' Elyashiv only gave his opinion after a beis din of experts, who presumably read the book, gave their opinion. But the second step, to my knowledge, was not followed at all. And even the first doesn't seem to have happend with Slifkin.

Head over to Krum for the story.
