A Rav mentioned that Chofetz Chaim told his son (a Rav) to appoint leaders of the community to take care of the chesed needs in order to address more global issues - noting that he himself writes seforim to reach a grander scale.

Where does the Chofetz Chaim say this?

  • Probably if it exists it would be recorded in his son's biography of his dad. I'm just guessing. Book with a very long title I always forget it – Double AA Aug 30 '19 at 15:57
  • @DoubleAA Do you mean the son’s intro. to “Nidhe Yisrael/The Dispersed of Israel” (pub. 1951)? – Oliver Aug 30 '19 at 16:05
  • @olive the one I'm thinking of is something like דרכיו מנהגיו פסקיו ותורתו של החפץ חיים maybe there are others – Double AA Aug 30 '19 at 16:06
  • @DoubleAA Title length checks out – Oliver Aug 30 '19 at 16:09
