Words of Instruction of the Lubavitcher Rebbe ztz”l –
“There are issues that the great [Torah scholars] of the generation keep quiet about, and do not react to,
this is not always proof that one is not supposed to do anything about [these issues],
and find accounts and arguments to avoid [these issues].
One must know that if s/he sees her/himself capable of doing something about the discussed, [then] one needs to do so,
and the fact that those greater than her/himself do not say a word is possibly in order ‘for Pinchas to take the Kehuna [priesthood]’ as it is written in the Midrash…”
