RAEK and Rav Hutner

From Rabbi Moshe Tzvi Neriah's sefer,
see the footnote (from Rabbi Neriah's diary, 1934).

Rabbi Yaakov Ariel shlita quoting me in passing

See the footnote.

Rabbi Menashe Klein's Teshuvos To Me

I have the original letters since I received them many years ago while learning at Sha'alvim. I only learned yesterday that they were actually printed in the Mishneh Halachos!

Letters from Reb Chaim Ozer to my Grandfather zt"l

These letters were initially published by my uncle, Rabbi Ezra Schochet shlita, in the kovetz of Yeshivas Ohr Elchonon. 

These copies are from Igros Reb Chaim Ozer.

Toras Purim 5758: Hegeh and Bigsan, Roshei Perokim

Against, b'kitzur nimratz.

Before he met Esther the watchman on the women's house was הגא with an aleph.

After meeting Esther he became הגי with a yud - evidently indicative of a his'alus.

But we know that the yud taken from Sarai complained until it was affixed to the beginning of Yehoshua.

So where did the aleph from Hegeh go?

It went to Bigsan.

In the beginning of the Megillah he is plain בגתן.

When the story is read to Achashveirosh he is בגתנא.

But why...?
