How Does The Haredi World Change?

In his second lecture on the Steipler for Torah in Motion, professor Marc B. Shapiro says: “Any changes are only valid if they are put forth by their authority figures. All the propaganda put out by people like Avi Shafran that we don’t believe in this or that, it’s all nonsense. They believe in what the gadolim tell them. That makes perfect sense, more sense than what the apologists say who try to explain the haredi world. Avi Shafran does not know what the gadolim will say until they say it.”
