There’s been a lot of confusion recently over Rav Elyashiv’s position on the Zoo Rabbi. I wonder if R. Elyashiv would clarify matters – to R. Slifkin’s satisfaction – if only he realized that Rabbi Slifkin is his mishpoche. For R. Elyashiv, as you will recall, is my first cousin’s husband’s great-uncle. And Rabbi Slifkin, I now discover a little belatedly, is my sister-in-law’s brother’s brother-in-law. (Also known as my sister-in-law’s sister-in-law’s brother – Everyone following?) In other words, Rav Elyashiv and Rabbi Slifkin are practically flesh and blood, one and the same, with me (!) as the crucial connecting link. Family reunion, anyone?
