This was classic ,forwarded it to tons of people .... Do you have a source for that Chofetz Chaim statement ?? I have never read or heard about it ?????? Why all these "natural" disasters ?? The Slonner Rebbe writes in his book Netivot Shalom that the flood was not a punishment rather a result of our sins .. Sinning destroys the entire world ,so nature ceases to function normally .. What an idea !!! Keep up the great work
Sorry, Rav Yehuda, I missed answering your question here. I went back to Mr. Neuberger's newsletter but he did not give a source.
