New Acronym for use in assessing all sorts of phenomena!

In light of the many recent statements of dubious validity, I would suggest a good barometer:


What Would Reb Yisroel Salanter Say?

This reflects a very biting comment made to me many years ago by a friend (yes, he is still a friend) of mine about a certain incident:


What Would Reb Avrohom Eliyahu Kaplan Have Done?


  1. Over Pesach, I was thinking about how Hillel would conduct his Seder if he were alive today--would he eat matzah, maror and korech or just matzah and korech (discussed by Rishonim). It occurred to me that What Would Hillel Do? is a good thing to ask in life.

  2. I already use "WWRALD"?

    (For the stumped: )

  3. And for those of us on a lower madreiga, there's always WWRYGBD and WWRMBD. :-)

  4. I have been using WWAAD for some time (AA=Avraham Avinu). Usually used as a way to urge myself to act with greater generosity of spirit.
