This story took place at a time that both Rav Moshe and I were living in Eretz Yisrael. We had both been in the States, and at the time Eretz Yisrael was ahead of America by a parsha. When we got back to Eretz Yisrael, they were up to Acharei-Mos/Kedoshim, and we would miss Tazriah/Metzorah. My feeling was that there was nothing to do about it, and that’s that. But Rav Moshe was simply unwilling to accept such a thing. He identified a hotel where there were chutznikim who would be leining Tazriah/Metzorah, and afterwards we would go to Zichron Moshe to hear Acharei-Mos/Kedoshim. And that’s what we did. When we completed the plan, Rav Moshe turned to me with the biggest smile and said, “We did it!” It was evident that fulfilling a mitzvah in the best way possible was his greatest source of joy. Nothing could make him more excited.
