R' Hillel David (Posek)
R' Feivel Cohen (Posek & Chairman of meeting)

Bobover Dayan
Pupa Rov
R' Zalmen Leib Tietelbaum (Rov of Satmar "Willy Division")

no medical professionals and no one who isnt sanctioned by the brooklyn agudah moetzes world.

no ou rabbis, no YU roshei yeshiva, just the gedoylim of the brooklyn world.

if they were interested in full exposure they would have other rabbis from the orthodox community and those knowlegeable in the law and science

What sacred issue ??? Pikuach nefesh is not a sacred issue ? If Rav Chaim Brisker didn't do it because of pikuach nefesh, what are these guys tummeling about (I am talking about Litvaks - Hassidim have their own Torah for their sect) ?

first off- this was vehemently argued on other blogs- i want to point out to the one who quoted R Chaim- in EY they disagree that he said that as a halacha, and they claim he only said it as a one time thing!

Not everything that comes out of EY is automatically always correct. Sometimes us golus'niks have the mesora better than EY. The talmud bavli won out over the talmud Yerushalmi.

Let's keep the bashing to a minimum and actually discuss the facts. I, for one, would like to know what was discussed at the meeting and if there is a possibility that MBP will not be protocol in future brit milahs.

Aharon Schechter is a NOBODY. He loves seeing his name along with his smiling-Cartier-framed-face in print.

The Talmud Bavli didn't "win out" over the Talmud Yerushalmi - it was merely later.
