Rav Chaim Kanievsky: Rav Shteinman’s Will Only For His Family


Despite the will of Rav Aharon Leib Steinman zt “l, who, in his most humble manner, instructed not to be Maspid him and not to write about him in the newspapers and ads, all Chareidi newspapers have covered and even published speacil editions as well.

Behind this is the explicit instruction of Maran Harav Kanievsky, who ruled that the will is intended for the family only and that it is incumbent on all of Klal Yisrael  to respect the Gadol Hador publicly.

This morning the hebrew Yated printed a letter written by the son of Maran Harav Kanievsky, Harav Yitzchok Shaul Shlita stating his fathers opinion.
