I have heard that, recently, some publishers who reprint old sefarim remove some haskamot (approbations) from the book when they reprint it.
(Specifically, I heard that some Israeli chareidi publishers remove the haskamot of R' Kook and other Zionist rabbis whom they disagree with.)
- Is this true?
- If it is, are there any halachot regarding leaving in the original haskamot when one reprints a book?
- Perhaps they are now misrepresenting the book, or showing disgrace to the works of rabbi, or similar?
