A certain friend of mine used to live next to Rabbi Shlomo Dichovsky, ex rabbinic director in state family court, known for being “progressive”. He tells me Rabbi Dichovsky’s wife once admitted to his mother that her husband’s rulings favor women more than Halacha does, because he is a feminist. She cannot figure out why he does so and disagrees with his feminism herself.
Yes, I know the above is is ‘missing’, but there is nothing I can do about that. I would not and could not divulge my sources, so take the story for whatever it’s worth. And please don’t mutter “you mean nothing at all“.
