"Everyone knows" that in order to properly preserve printed
materials they must be microfilmed. For more than 30 years

destroyed more than $10 million worth of books in order to
microfilm them, according to author Nicholson Baker.
Preparation for Yeshiva Gedolah

remarks are directed against those committed to the
leadership of HaRav Shach shlita. He then gives several

"And she [the new mother] shall be impure for seven days"
Vayikra Rabba 14).

Oslo Accords were born. The Likud, then the opposition
party, was firmly opposed to the accords both in the Knesset
and in mass demonstrations and protest activities across the
