"Wives are bigger Talmeidei Chachamim than their Kollel Husbands" Rav Moshe Shternbuch


Rav Moshe Shternbuch was addressing the kollel guys of "Kollel Zechor Avraham" run by R' Pinchas Samit, and urged them to learn "halacha le'maaseh" halacha's that are in the here and now.

He told them of a Din Torah about a Sholom Bayis issue, between a kollel guy and his wife.  

During the discussions between the Bais Din and the young couple it was discovered that the kollel guy wasn't at all knowledgeable in halacha  and specifically Hilchos Shabbos.

 The father of his wife wanted to renege on his promise of buying them a dira, since his condition to the shidduch was that his daughter was going to marry a "Talmud Chacham, " but he has since discovered that yes, he was the top kollel guy in Yeshivas Chevron, but was only great in "pilpul of sugyois" but was a total ignoramus in basic hilchas shabbas, and when he wanted to know a halacha on shabbos he turned to his educated wife for a psak halacha. What good is it to be the top bachir in Yeshivas Chevron and at the same time be a big "am haaretz"
