Rav Hershel Schachter Issues Strong Teshuvah Against Those Permitting Women to Wear Tefillin

  1. Beautifully written, Not that the Rav Shlit”a need my endorsement. There is a difference in scope and magnitute that only a gadol has mastered to fully respond to a question like this. Many people have said “I agree halachikally its not acceptable but you have to look at from an Educational point of view”. But clearly no one consulted with gedolim, Rav Schachter clearly points out these are musmachuim of YU and they should have consulted previously. If you think Rav Schachter can’t understand “Education” then try your best to inform him first.

  2. Doesn’t get much clearer than that. Awaiting to see how these “rabbis” twist the teshuva around and bend it like a pretzel to explain why he really agrees with them.
