  1. What about CC?

  2. I’ll definitely have Cheese Cake of Yom Tov. Otherwise, I don’t know what you mean by CC.

  3. How on earth is discussing Kahanaism a Torah topic or worthy of being a Shavuos night discussion?

  4. Over 20 mareh mekomos!

  5. It’s been true for a while, and still is. Bashing Kahane (it helps to have once been a follower, or claim to be) is the best guaranteed ticket to success.

    Of course, it’s kind of sad.

    Especially when you got the book for free from them.

  6. Interesting how disagreeing with Kahane becomes “bashing Kahane.” Interesting but not surprising.

  7. It’s kind of an obsession among some people. You’d think the man was one of the most influential politicians of all time, did major damage, and was still alive based on the sort of negative attention he gets.

  8. There was once a New York Times article that purported Kahane was a womanizer.

  9. Oh Stan! No! Never heard that one before!

  10. “I’ll definitely have Cheese Cake of Yom Tov. Otherwise, I don’t know what you mean by CC.”

    I meant Chofetz Chaim, which is on the same block as where I heard you yesterday. Thanx much- t’was quite enjoyable and you must have been inspired enough by CC to to repeat a vort from R Henoch Leibowitz!

    Perhaps you could post a summary. I’m almost afraid to repeat anything you said, lest I misquote you. 😉

  11. You were there? I don’t remember anyone with the name “Shaul Shapira” introducing himself. Expect something about five times as long on YouTube within a few weeks. Yesterday’s overwhelming feedback convinced me I need to speak up about this and I’m working on a script that I will have reviewed by experts and (my) rabbanim.

  12. “You were there?”

    Excellent deduction!

    “I don’t remember anyone with the name “Shaul Shapira” introducing himself.”

    That would be hard since ‘Shaul Shapira’ is a composite of R SHAUL Yisraeli and R Avraham SHAPIRA. (Don’t expect to meet too many people by the last name of Rantings either.) In any case, I apologize for not introducing myself. I came over to shake your hand and tell you ‘Shkoyach’. You were talking to someone else and I had to go.

    “Expect something about five times as long on YouTube within a few weeks.”

    Can I come watch it in your kitchen if there’s a yotze v’nichnas?

    “I’m working on a script that I will have reviewed by experts and (my) rabbanim.”

    Will we ever get to know who they are?
