What Some Roshei Yeshiva Are Like

The deans of  a certain Yeshiva once came to Rabbi Elazar Menachem Shach to ask if they could expel an unmarried student caught violating Shabbos. “Do you know about the financial situation in his home?” “No”, they replied. Rabbi Shach asked once more, “Do you know what the Shalom Bayis is like in his home?” Again, they said no. At this point the rabbi arose from his sick bed like a lion: Rodfim, get out of my house!
