R' Chaim Kanievsky: Is Bet Shemesh in America?



This video shows how disconnected the "gedolim" are from what is going on and how dependent they are on "askanim" to get them the facts. Therefore it is hard to trust anything they say about contemporary issues. Does anyone believe that R' Elyashiv actually read the Mishpacha magazine/newspaper before banning it?

This is an old video and doesn't prove much. Of course he knows where Beit Shemesh is (it's in Nach) and he was saying it humorously. This was confirmed by a friend who is a relative of his.

It doesn't, but I assume he has a dry sense of humor. I thought like you originally but I was convinced otherwise. I have much better proofs to the point you are trying to make...

I second bluke on this one...

The people there definitely didn't think it was a joke, as they started explaining where Bet Shemesh is.
