(Old News from May 18, 2020)
On or about May 18th, Rav Pinchos Frankel shlit”a, then Rav of Khal Igud Avreichim of Flatbush spoke at length to his congregation. The audio is below. The shmooz was shown very briefly at matzav.com and then summarily self-censored.
Rav Frankel shlit”a is an outstanding Talmid Chochom. His father, Rav Yosef Frankel shlit”a, (shown) is a sitting member of the Moetzes Gedolei Torah of America. Sources tell EN that the senior Rav Frankel agreed with the message which was conveyed by Rav Pinchos shlit”a.
