  1. I happen to know Reb Mendy and he’s an outstanding askan and talmid chochom – he’s mamash unbelievable. Mazel Tov on this wonderful occasion! May you see nachas from your family and extended family!

  2. Anonymous #3 ought to get his priorities right. Does he really think that his precious Chinese Auction cannot be postponed until the weather improves?

    Better he should spend his time shteiging until the thaw sets in.

  3. I happen to live in flatbush and have witnessed the gracious hosts Reb Tzali Edelstein and his choshuv Rebbetzin open their beautiful home many times…not just this once. So to say that they are not the “regular hosts” would be false and actually a lack of hakaros hatov to them because in fact they have hosted Reb Nosson Tzvi many times and their home is always open to guests of all walks of life.
