The Story Making Headlines: For What Did Rav Chaim Kanievsky Wait 25 Years?



  1. How beautiful this story, and how remarkable the words: Ma’ase avos siman l’bonim”

    There is a well known story concerning R’ Chaim’s father, the Steipler, zy’a, that also revolves around the inyan of mechila…in that case the mechila that the Gaon felt he needed to ask for was of a very young boy-perhaps 7 or 8. He waited until the boy was celebrating his Bar Mitzvah, and on that that Shabbos, though already not venturing out as often or as far as he used to, made a point of going to the Shule where the B”M was being celebrated to ask the young man for mechilah….explaining that he waited until that moment, when the boy was a bar chiyuvah, to be certain the bochur’s mechilah would be chal.

    Thank you for sharing this story as well.
