So R' Moshe is defending the practice of the Shach and Magen Avraham against that of Hassidim including the Chozeh of Lublin. Makes sense. As for the rumors circulating my (non-hassidic) yeshiva ... well it happens sometimes. See rechovot.blogspot.com/2009/08/…

comment Agudath Israel Convention
Back when Agudath Israel had its official publication, the Jewish Observer, I assume the information would be there. Now that it's no longer in print ... I don't know, maybe something like Mishpacha would report on it?

comment Is there a good children's parsha book that's focused on pshat, not midrash?
How pshat-vs-midrash is this? For instance, what wrestles with Jacob -- a man or an angel?
