Thanks for reading! I forgot to post about it here. Will do now.
I saw the Ami cover and this thread crossed my mind, thinking to myself if it's related. My question was answered when you mentioned DDF  ;)

Hi guys! Thanks for trying to scare me out of doing the trip. Thank G-D I didnít listen. I made the trip and it worked out quite well for me. I donít plan on posting a Trip Report here, but if you want to read about my experience, I wrote a full feature article about my visit to Lebanon which has been printed in the Sukkos 2018 Issue of Ami Magazine. In stores now! Get yourself a copy! Itís definitely worth a read.

Thanks for reading!

Any detail that is too sensitive to be shared in the magazine is too sensitive to be shared here. People in Lebanon can literally get into serious trouble for meeting with me.

LOL! I knew it wouldnít make the cover. Yom Tov issue covers always feature Gedolim. Donít read a book by its cover.

As a non yeshivish Jew, I disagree with the insinuation that only Yeshivish people keep Halacha. :)
