Halacha and Modernity
Maoz Kahana will speak about the Hatam Sofer. Benny Brown will pick up on that theme and discuss Halacha and modernity from the Hatam Sofer to the Hazon Ish. Shlomo Tychozcinsky is slated to describe the Lithuanian yeshivot in British Mandate Palestine, and Shlomo Deshen will speak (in a second session, on current trends) about the Oriental (Mizrahi) Haredi movement.
Update: After Simcha's speech, Moshe Samet asked about a computer system he had heard of which reveals whether a particular author wrote a particular book. Simcha answered that he had no idea, and Ezra explained that he meant Ben Chorin. So I guess the list of people making the connection with Besamim Rosh includes Samet himself.
