Rav Kanievsky Wishing Rav Shteinman a Long Life

By Gldmeier @gldmeier
We are davening and wishing, along with the tzibbur, for the health and recovery of Rav Shteinman who has been very ill over the past couple of days.
Yesterday Rav Shalom Ber Sorotzkin asked Ravv Chaim Kanievsky for a clarification on something he had said. Supposedly Rav Kanievsky had been quoted as having said that people could daven that Hashem should grant Rav Shteinman more years than what had originally been designated for him. Rav Sorotzkin asked Rav Kanievsky if he had really said that. The basis for such an allowance would be that Rav Shteinman is a public person, somebody needed by the community, rather than just being a private person.
Rav Kanievsky responded that he had indeed said that. Rav Sorotzkin then said this gives tremendous encouragement to the people. Rav Kanievsky's grandson explained to Rav Kanievsky what Rav Sorotzkin had said and explained that it gives great encouragement because Rav Shteinman is very old but we can still daven for him to have many more years - a long life.
Rav Kanievsky responded incredulously, "he is very old? Rebbe Preida lived to 400 years old!"
