Here is a letter that I just sent to about thirty people, mostly talmidim of Rav Moshe Shapiro: Rabbosai, Fourteen years ago, during the controversy over my books, I made several mistakes. In this email, I would like to describe two of them. One was with regard to Rav Moshe Shapiro's characterization of his condemnation of my work, in which he presented himself as following in the footsteps of Maharal's condemnation of Azariah de Rossi. I quoted an (unnamed) rabbi, widely regarded as something of an authority on Maharal, who said that he did not believe that Rav Moshe Shapiro was correct in this. This rabbi claimed that Maharal would not have been opposed to saying that Chazal made statements about the natural world that were inaccurate.
