Fashion and Style of the Gedolim

Baruch Hashem we have solved all our problems and can busy ourselves with fighting over the color of the cloak of this or that rabbi.

Either that or the haredi commentators have added a "style column" to their repertoire.

At last night's "mimouna" celebrations in the Moroccan community, [former] Chief Rabbi Shlomo Amar made his appearances wearing his honorary robes, as former Rishon lTzion. What has everybody in a tizzy, and I feel almost like TMZ right now, is that he wore his robes that are embroidered with the, sit down, gold threads, rather than the robes with the silver threads!

The problem? Not really sure, but they say that he has only worn the silver robes in recent years, so this looks like he is planning something bigger.

The questions are why? what is he aiming for? is he making a move to be the next Maran? Is he trying to bring the new Chief Rabbi down a notch?

Rav Amar, of course, denies all this. Even says he has worn the golden robes at various functions over the past few years.

And sure enough, someone even went and checked that. They probably had to sift through hundreds of pictures, but they did! They discovered that, at least in public fundtions, he only wore the silver robes in recent years.

Baruch Hashem, our big concerns are now gossip-column material. "Fashion and Style of the Gedolim" is going to be the newest feature in Haredi newspapers.
