Today, Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz came to YCT and spoke about selihos (video). Having never heard him before, I wasn't sure what to expect (yes, he is a prolific author, some of which I've read, but I didn't know about him as a speaker). However, I thought he was great, especially really liking his humbleness and gentleness. Anyways, that is my two cents on that.
Oh, and, by the way, it's my birthday today.
