Please help me find it.

  • @DoubleAA That link is irrelevant, as it refers to a Teshuva written by RMF ABOUT Carlebach. The OP is asking about a Teshuva allegedly written directly TO Carlebach. At 7:35 Shlomo claims that there is a Teshuva written to him, which is printed in Igros Moshe. Is that a fact, or an embellishment? Commented May 14, 2023 at 22:38

    How to ascertain it was the singer/composer and not his cousin, the almost-sort-of-mashgiach at Chaim Berlin?

    The topic discussed is the one mentioned in the video

  • Interesting the teshuva about "the singing rabbi who's doing bad things" is dated only four years and one week later hebrewbooks.org/pdfpager.aspx?req=59509&st=&pgnum=245 Much closer than I'd have expected

    Further, in the Teshuva, the concern was, that if we don't permit her to marry the first guy (before the requisite 24 months are up), then she might get "sick", or she might go off and marry a secular person. In the video SC says that she threatened to commit suicide within 2 days, if she wasn't allowed to marry him. Commented May 15, 2023 at 7:27

    @IsraelReader would not be the first time, nor the last time, that some of the details on the exact case were lost somewhere along the way. (Sometimes how the sender chose to phrase it; sometimes how Rav Moshe understood it; sometimes he's changing details for privacy; sometimes a rabbi may shift and answer the question he'd rather face.)
