Hagaon Rav Chaim Kanievsky Zatzal and a Lakewood Yungerman’s Mezuzah

[This story was originally published by TLS in 2009]

A Lakewood Yungerman’s father visited Rav Chaim Kanievsky ZT”L to receive Brochos for his children.

The Rav was reading the names on the Kvitel wishing Brocha V’hatzlocha by each name.

When the Rav got to the name of this particular Lakewood Yungerman, the Rav said “tell your son to check his Mezuzahs back at home.”

Sure enough, the Yungerman immediately went to check all his Mezuzahs.

Shocked, the Yungerman found the font door Mezuzah – which was checked just over a year prior and was enclosed in an outdoor casing – to be water logged and Pasul.

Attached is a picture of the Mezuzah.
