Has anyone else heard of this lady?ReplyDelete
Should Rav Elyashiv, Rav Wosner and Rav Chaim Kanievsky be a little bit apprehensive about their positions?
If you take "Torah" in the very limited sense of "torah shebichsav", she is indeed one of the greatest scholars in the world today; I wouldn't be surprised if she knows Tanach better than all three of the gentlemen you named. Gemoro, not so much.ReplyDelete
If you take the time to read some of Avivah's writings, you will see that she is capable of providing an incredibly complex and thoughtful parshanut on the torah. See here for an example: http://www.matan.org.il/content.asp?id=203ReplyDelete
Is she orthodox? And is how can she share the stage with Reform types?ReplyDelete
