I h8ghly recommend that he not talk about the mezuzot issue. He is partial and biased and he knows why…
The oylom has had enough…
When one of his staff is in need of miraculous rachamei shomayim I highly advise him to keep his mouth shut on this issue.

I spoke to Rabbi Avtzon
He has no intention of speaking about the video or mezuzos; he is not a Rav or Sofer.As written on the poster: the LESSON WE CAN LEARN in our Avoda..
stop the hate..

Folks, hashem should bless all of you. As previous commentators have mentioned, he indeed spoke nothing of the actual controversy. He spoke very beautifuly and touched on many inspiring points, including the following:
Just like a Mezuzah is not the Mezuzah case, so too every Chasssid is not the hat and jacket. Just like a Mezuzah must be brought to a Sofer to be checked on a regular basis, so too a chassid must go a mashpia on a regular basis to make sure that he is in tow with all that he is doing. Etc…it was a very beautiful lecture. Huge shout out to Izzy Clapman⁩ for arranging these superstar speakers.

I guess it may have been a good thing that he was warned against talking about the mezuzzah scandal
Although it could’ve shed some light since he/his yeshiva was directly involved with this story ordering and then shipping most if not all the packages to Cincinnati and from there to chicago
