In response to my post titled “The Steipler’s Noble Lie”, I received the following from a reader:
I think that you are referring to the Steipler’s Karyana D’igarta, vol. 1, number 113, p. 128. However, the Steipler is not talking about washing flesh but rather about washing clothing which became stained. He specifically mentions Kevisa which refers to laundry.
I have a stay of execution, though, at least until someone (me or another) manages to verify this is the only source for sure.
