Excellent Quote  
This past week, Rabbi Nosson Kaminetzky passed away. He was a son of the great Rabbi Yaakov Kaminetzky z"l. In his early years, he was involved with establishing the Mesivta of Long Beach, and eventually moved to Eretz Yisrael in 1970, where he taught at Yeshivas ITRI in Yerushalayim. Over the past few decades, Rabbi Nosson Kaminetzky was a frequent contributor to Torah periodicals, including Hamayan, Kovetz Bais Aharon v’Yisrael and Moriah.

He is well know for writing a book, the Making of a Godol, that caused some controversy for its frank description of great Torah scholars.

In explaining his approach, Rabbi Kaminetzky quipped: "the greatest bizayon (insult) to gedolim (Torah scholars) is to suggest that the truth about them is a bizayon (insult) to them".
