More Good News

The awarding of this year's Nobel Prize in Economics to Prof. Yisrael (Robert) Aumann is a source of great nahas to Israelis generally, and those of us of the Dati-Leumi/Modern Orthodox variety. Ben Chorin (who knows him), describes him as 'a heimishe yid originally from New York and a brother-in-law of Rav Shlesinger from Shaalvim. He is a talmid chakham who has written some very nice game-theory-related chiddushim on various sugyas..'
