Very nicely done!
I down here in Texas and that mp3 is the only way of me hearing that interview

After the Rebbe told you to go to Rav Feinstein, you told us Rav Feinstein's response, but then what? Did you return to the Rebbe to show him exactly what you had found? You did not make this clear in the interview. Please clarify. What was your next step, and what was the precise reaction?

Shmarya


The Rebbe was given Rav Moshe's response by Rav Moshe's family. Rabbi Dworkin, the ABD of Crown Heights, also had it and agreed with it. I have described that and my meeting with Rav Dworkin about it several times in the past.

The Rebbe had Rav Moshe's earlier answers, as well. He also had the letter and petition signed by Rav Mohe.

Agudas HaRabbonim issued a pesak (basically Rav Moshe's teshuva) signed by hundreds of rabbis. The rebbe was given this, as well.

The Rebbe did not help Ethiopian Jews even after receiving Rav Moshe's teshuvot, etc.

Shmarya: What do you think the Rebbe's motivation was? I don't think he was racist, because he accepted African-American converts.

Shmarya

None of those converts or their children were shluchim while the Rebbe lived.

Interesting. So what of all the other Agudath rabbis, since they issued that pesak? They helped? Maybe Lubovitch chose to commit resources elsewhere? Not everyone can do everything. But hey, I don't think the Rebbe was perfect to begin with so it's no problem with me if you fault him for that move. No person is perfect. But I don't need to smear him for it... What exactly is the point of all this? And I'm not saying this to be a jerk, I really mean the question.

Shmarya

The point is Jews need to know who and what their leaders really are.

We also need to learn from our past mistakes.

How can we help the situation with the Ethiopian Jews.
