Rabbi Wiener spoke at KAYJ in 2007 when he visited Eretz Yisrael with his grandson, Yehudah Wiener of Monsey. He addressed the N'shei KAYJ with a Shabbos talk Nechama after the Churban: Miracles I didn't expect in Nazi Germany. This emphasized the rebirth of Torah, yeshivos and Minhag Ashkenaz citing midrash, chumash and gemara.

2. R' Leib Scheinbaum, author of Ashkenaz: The World That Was, visited Kehilas Ashkenaz of Baltimore as a Shabbos scholar on parashas Mishpatim. Kehillas Ashkenaz is run by our good friend Alexander Weil, who lived in Ramot and was a member of KAYJ before moving to Baltimore. The story can be accessed at the link below and is also in the print editions of Yated USA (last week p. 110) and is supposed to be in today's Hamodia USA
