BDE

Keeping to his wishes expressed in his will might be very difficult for many. I wonder if people will indeed follow his requests.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I know some גדולים explicitly instructed that some be ignored due to כבוד התורה

Hmm. How is that not contradictory?

Fascinating that they completely honored his requests. There were actually no hespedim and he was buried within 6 (or 7) hours.
Amazing to see the amounts of people who came out to the levaya. Kavod asu lo bmoso
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

My understanding is one is כבוד התורה and the other is כבוד המת. If a river tells people not to stand for him, I think many wouldn't listen.

Unconfirmed source

"Despite Rav Shteinman's will. For the sake of Kavod Hatorah, Rav Gershon Edelstein ruled that all high school students & above from the whole country should participate in the Levaya."
What does it say?
See picture.

Just noticed this:
Maran Hagaon HaRav Chaim Kanievskey Shlita... also instructed all Mesibos Chanukah to be cancelled during the Shiva.

What does it say?
Quote
• I ask that there are no hespedim, not before me or any atzeres or gathering of any kind.
• No major writeups in newspapers – not daily weekly or others. My photo is sufficient and not writing as is customary for others. Ten persons at the levaya is sufficient.
• Do not print pashkavilim, don’t make announcements via loudspeakers or radio.
• Make an effort to bury me quickly and prevent delay between my petira and kvura.
• Do not write any titles on the tombstone other than פה נקבר רב אהרון יהודא לייב בן רב נח צבי שטיינמן’
• My burial place should be the simplest, least expensive. Do not waste money on a burial site.
• As the minhag is to visit the kever at the end of shiva and shloshim, not to waste more than necessary for it is better giving money for limud and for certain, not on ‘devarim beteilim’.
• If seeking a place to daven before the amud results in too much time, it is preferred to engage in limud torah l’shem shomayim.
• Anyone seeking to assist me (it is for us in essence), lean a chapter of mishnayos daily until the end of the 12 months. Women can recite 10 chapters of Tehillim daily, including Shabbos and Yomtov.
• I request not to remember (Refer) to me as a tzaddik or a Yirei Shomayim so I am not insulted in the Olam HaEmmes.
• I ask mechila if I offended anyone and if there is anyone I owe money to, and in reality, he will not collect even though he has the right ‘al pi din’, please be moichel me.
• My children should not follow the aron for kvura as is minhag Yerushalayim.
• Do not name children after me but do not prevent it either
• If you wish, give money to tzedaka instead of a tombstone, to give but not to buy.
• (Last addition) Since many err, I am advising not to name children after me but I do not forbid it.

There's a slight mistransalation in the last item of the tzavaah, in Hebrew it says "הרבה טועים בי" which means many err in me, meaning they think I'm a Tzadik, and am worthy of being named after.

Wow!!! He held himself back from calling the guy who was pressing him a Baal Gaaveh too. The guy wasnt getting the answer he wanted so he pressed and pressed. Why couldnt he be honest and say, "This is what i need to hear, whether you agree or not".

Many people misunderstand this, I also did till I found out the context. The guy pressing him was playing devil's advocate in order to get a good reaction for the camera. He was very close to Rav Aharon Leib, he founded tens of Kollelim, he's a big personality, and was "raitzing un the matzav"

Spoken like a true child. Thats normal? Play a Gadol Hador for the cameras? Playing devil's advocate is how we end up with piskei halacha in the name of gedolim that were never their intentions. This video if taken out of context can be seen for the and of the following and more:
1. The Rosh Yeshiva called someone a meshugener.
2. The Rosh Yeshiva called a certain yeshiva communist.
3. The Rosh Yeshiva told someone to send kids to the moon.

I mean come on. There is so much wrong with this. It is a good window into seeing how people can drive gedolei yisroel crazy with hypotheticals and "what ifs" to get the result they seek. in this case baby shtick of "raitzing un the matzav"...

Maybe straighten out those earmuffs and have your hearing checked.

Sorry for "raitzing you un" to a point that you had to name call, and talk down at me. I'll respond when you cool down.

Fickle, thin-skinned child. How's that for name calling. No one needs your response. Like no one needed to see that crappy video of some hoo-ha earmuff wearing dope playing childish games with a 100 year old man for his own gratification, let alone the gadol hador.

There, its out of my system.

To paraphrase Rav Shteinman, the reason why you responded that way, has nothing to do with anything but "GAAVAH, GAAVAH, GAAVAH!

Have some anivus and talk with respect to people.
