Rav Chaim Kanievsky: Don't Destroy Grasshopper Miracle Wall
The well-known story of Rav Chaim Kanievsky and the grasshopper is back in the news again.
Kikar is now reporting that after doing some renovations on his apartment to connect it to his son's apartment, he woke up on a Friday night looking at one of the walls of the house, saying, "I'm concerned that they knocked down the wall upon which the grasshopper miracle happened."
He explained, "There is a known story with the Hid"a ZT"L where a miracle occurred on the steps close to his home, and after a while, he requested that they cover the steps with pure gold as a sign and wonder about the holy event - so that Jews would be strengthened in their Emuna with this and they will see that there is a Leader to the tower."
I couldn't tell from the story whether the wall was actually knocked down or not. Also, the story that I heard had it occurring via a window - not a wall. If someone knows how to reconcile these issues, I'd appreciate it if you can answer in the comments. But it is interesting nonetheless.
