Ad in Hamodia acknowledges R' Shachter as a Gadol

I saw an ad in this week's English Hamodia which really surprised me. The ad is for the Taryag Mitzvos Program, where people learn about the Taryag Mitzvos. They have a full page ad in Hamodia with haskamos from a whole list of gedolim. I was perusing the list and saw, R' Elyashiv, R' Chaim Kanievsky, R' Mattisyahu Solomon, and then I almost fell out of my chair "R' Hershel Shachter Rosh Hayeshiva, Yeshivas Rabbeinu Yitzchak Elchanan". Right under his name comes R' Moshe Shapiro, then R' Shteinman.

I was in a rush leaving the house this morning so I don't really know. I think it is a sefer but I am not sure. The bit about R' Shachter really caught my eye. When I get home I will read the ad more carefully.

Sure it's not an April Fool's thing? Or is that Chukas HaGoyim?

It's only an ad. Hamodia doesn't check the ads that closely.
