Questions like these and many more online “questions and answers provided by RCE” came up during the shiur given by Rabbi Eliyahu Schlesinger, the Rabbi of Gilo neighborhood and the author of books that contain year wide topics. The class lasted for an hour as European Rabbis asked dozens of questions in the above areas. Rabbi Schlesinger replied to every one of them.
