Rav Elchonon Wasserman


Shalom aleichem Rabbi Lauffer. Thank you for answering my last question. Years ago I heard a rabbi say that Rabbi Elchonon Wasserman killed a moser. Is this written down anywhere in any sefer? Thanks, good moed.



  1. There is a famous “story” that has done the rounds for as long as I can remember that Rav Elchonon Wasserman killed a Moser. Is it true? I do not know but I have my doubts. In all events, I am not familiar with any verified source for the story.
