# 3071 That’s a Shame

Q. One went to a shul to wish mazel tov to a Rav for a simcha. One planned to stay only a short while at the kiddush, since one has a guest in his house who is waiting for him. However, as one prepares to leave, the Rav gets up to speak, and one feels unable to wait until the end of the drasha, since his guest is waiting. May one get up and leave, or is it disgracing the honor of the Rav? (The person was sitting right near the Rav.)
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that one should stay and avoid embarrassing the Rov. When he reaches home, he should explain what happened to his guest.
Rabbi A. Bartfeld as advised by Horav Shlomo Miller and Horav Aharon Miller Shlit’a
