This is the first of a new occasional series in which I post interesting texts with a brief introduction. These texts will not be representative of a balanced view but merely interesting statements or views for your files. Consider it a pictorial footnote. This is less formal than the usual Torah Musings material, a bit bloggy.
The first is a passage from Rav Dov Eliach’s Peninim Mi-Shulchan Gavoah in which he quotes Rav Mottel Katz of Telz-Cleveland discuss a post-World War I version of The Shabbos Project, and Rav Yosef Leib Bloch of Telz’s opposition to it.
