Subject:  Rav
Message:  If my rav passes away and my new rav has a different view about certain things, should I change my practice and follow the new rav? (e. g., if I have been eating gelatin for 20 years, do I now stop)?
Reply:  Get a Rav you can follow 100%. If this new Rav is a qualified Posek, he has the right Midot, and knows Sha"s, Poskim, and the proper derech HaLimud & Hapsak. Then you should follow him. If he's just another Shul rabbi, it's not your issue.
