Rav Zelig Braverman, son-in-law of Rav Chaim, was at the home of noted local askan, R’ Nachum Freund today. Rav Zelig was asked about the newly surfaced video of the Steipler Rav building a succah alone, as people wondered why Rav Chaim was not with his father. Rav Braverman answered that (apart from being a genius and tzadik) the Steipler was very handy. He, in fact, built Rav Chaim’s succah and fixed other things in his home. He also built an Aron Kodesh and shtender.
Below is the video of the Steipler building the succah which aroused so much curiosity.
