I don't know why people are making so much noise about a Tzavaah written for his sons. Nevermind the fact that most of the stuff are most likely his own Minhagim and have nothing to do with Dina DeGemara. – Hacham Gabriel Aug 9 '13 at 17:08
you mean the Magen Avraham and the Mishna Brurah are making noise? – sam Aug 9 '13 at 17:11
Yes. All the Aharonim spent a lot of time on this. I still wonder why. – Hacham Gabriel Aug 9 '13 at 18:02
