Simchas Torah: A video of Maranan Reb Leib Bakst and Reb Shmuel Birnbaum ztz'l

A little tete a tete on the sugya in Kesuvos 19-- Palginan by Mah li leshakeir in Kiyum Shtaros.

As a young man, I was once disappointed that Reb Leib didn't want to talk to me about Reb Akiva Eiger and the Nesivos on whether Misasek on Shabbos is just a petur korban or bichlal not a ma'aseh issur; maybe I should be grateful.

Notice that the others at the table know better than to put their heads between these two lions. They had probably been arguing about the sugya for sixty years, and I'll bet you dollars to doughnuts that they're still arguing about it right now.
