  1. The Gadlus is that it was written in 1982; years after Rav Ahron who he knew was niftar and even after Rav Shneur was niftar. It's also after the sides and differences were very entrenched.

  2. We need achdus. The gedolim of yesteryear understand this. Veahavta leracha komacheh zeh klal gadol batorah. Enough with michos and just get along and care for another yid!

  4. BMG originated from Boston. The kolell first opend in Boston under RYBS it than relocated to white plains NY when Rav Nosson Wachtfogel was hired to run it. After that Rav Aharon Kotler took it over and relocated to Lakewood.
