    1. Mr. Cohen says:

      “R Avigdor Nevenzal discusses the sanctity of Lasahon HaKodesh” should be corrected to:
      “R Avigdor Nevenzal discusses the sanctity of Lashon HaKodesh.”

    2. Yitzchok says:

      It’s a very minor point but I believe it might be more correct to refer to “Rabbi Lord Sacks” than “Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks”
