comment What is the value of a (Kesuba) marriage contract?
Wow, I didn't realize the price of silver had quadrupled since this article was written in 2002! R' Moshe had ruled "100 lbs of silver" when that exceeded a year's cost of living; it's likely that we're at that point again.

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/…
