Samuel & Diana Hirt Robbed at Gumpoint in their home, Friday Night in Beverly Hills

Hirt Home
Beverly Hills police continue their hunt for three intruders who shot an Orthodox Jewish woman last night after invading and robbing her home.

Both Samuel and Diana Hirt, who live at 420 Doheny Road in Beverly Hills, were home last night when the incident occurred at approximately 8:30 PM.
 
The Hirts host a minyan in their home and, reportedly, someone knocked on their door shortly after davening ended. The couple opened the door and three masked men barged into the their home. Police said that at least one of the men was holding a handgun.

Both Hirts were tied up by the intruders who also shot Mrs. Hirt in the leg. The robbers reportedly dragged the husband and wife throughout the house in their search for valuables. The burglars departed through the front door, fleeing the crime scene in a vehicle which drove away eastbound on Doheny Road.

Samuel Hirt untied himself after the intruders left and called police. According to CBS News, both victims were taken to Cedars Sinai Hospital, where Mrs. Hirt was treated for her injury, which was deemed to be non-life threatening. Mr. Hirt was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure and was discharged today.
The Santa Monica Police Department conducted a search of the area with the Los Angeles Police Department, but so far, no suspects have been located.
Police did not say what items were taken from the home.

Blogger Rabbi Harry Maryles Defends Novominsker Rebbe's Criticism of "Open Orthodoxy"

Harry Maryles
As controversy continues to swirl around the Novominsker Rebbe’s public condemnation of Open Orthodoxy at the Agudah Dinner this past week,
the Modern Orthodox Rabbi and author of a popular blog on Orthodox Jewish thought has publicly expressed his own assessment of Open Orthodoxy, agreeing that it is inconsistent with Orthodox Judaism.

Rabbi Harry Maryles, a Chicago resident who writes the blog Emes V’emunah, said the despite the fallout from Rabbi Perlow’s remarks, there are times when it is imperative to speak out.
“There has been a lot of negative reaction, but sometimes you have to stand up and say the truth, when Torah hashkafa is being called into question you can’t let it go unchallenged.”

 Rabbi Perlow had harsh words for Open Orthodoxy, likening it to the Conservative and Reform movements and calling it “heresy.”
 
Maryles, who was in Rabbi Perlow’s 12th grade shiur at Beis Medrash L’Torah in Skokie,Illinois believes that there are two components that are integral to being an Orthodox Jew.
“One is the belief system, believing that the events in the Torah actually happened, The second is following the mitzvos. Those are the two things that make you Orthodox.”

Of particular concern to Maryles are public statements made by proponents of Open Orthodoxy, including Rabbi Zev Farber, a graduate of Yeshiva Chovevei Torah.
“After studying bible critics, he very strongly questioned whether events in the Torah actually happened and said that they were allegorical,” said Maryles. “No Torah was given at Sinai. Moshe Rabbeinu didn’t exist. The Avos didn’t exist. His understanding of the Torah is that it was an unfolding revelation and that while the bible is divinely inspired, the actual events described couldn’t have happened. This is apikorsus and has be to labeled as that.”

Allowing for the possibility that the events in the Torah didn’t actually take place puts Open Orthodoxy in the same category as Conservative Judiasm, says Maryles.
“Conservatives don’t require you to believe in biblical criticism, but they consider it legitimate and Open Orthodoxy is doing the same thing,” noted Maryles. “In terms of theology they are the same. That is kefira and violates at least some of the thirteen ikarim of the Rambam, which we have accepted as the basis of our faith for generations.”

Rabbi Asher Lopatin, president of Yeshiva Chovevei Torah, which describes itself as an “open Modern Orthodox rabbinical school”, invited Rabbi Perlow to further discuss the issue at hand.
“I welcome the Novominsker into the conversation of how all of us Orthodox Jews can bring the light of Torah to all Jews, in a meaningful way,” said Rabbi Lopatin. “Yes, the Novominsker Rebbe’s words were harsh, especially for a fellow Chicagoan, but I hope it can lead to a healthy engagement and discussion. We at Yeshiva Chovevei Torah, our talmidim and musmachim, are ready to learn from and listen to all who have a Torah message. That is what inclusive, passionate and Modern Orthodoxy is all about.”

Maryles said that his rejection of Open Orthodoxy has not necessarily been well received by all.
“I have gotten a lot of flak from my friends on the left, but I have to speak the truth. Proponents of Open Orthodoxy claim that they believe in the Torah but they allow someone like Zev Farber to be a member in good standing and they allow the negation of events in the Torah as part of their theology. You can’t do that and still call yourself Orthodox.”

While there were those who advised him to stay silent, saying that his statements would alienate those who currently consider themselves to be Open Orthodox, but might one day step up their religious observance and beliefs.
“You can’t accept kefira as a method of kiruv,” observed Maryles.
Maryles declined to comment on whether or not the Agudah dinner was the proper venue for the Novominsker’s attack on Open Orthodoxy, although he agreed that with the secular media in attendance, it might not have been the best time to take on this topic.
“I am not going to second guess or criticize the Rebbe,” said Maryles. “I am not in a position to criticize someone of his stature but as a leading rabbi in America, he has a right to speak out.”

Hillary Clinton in New Book says: Video caused attack on Bengazi? She wants to be President?

The liar tries to weasel out of the truth, and writes in her book, (Bold lettering is ours):

"there were “scores of attackers that night, almost certainly with differing motives. It is inaccurate to state that every single one of them was influenced by this hateful video. 
It is equally inaccurate to state that none of them were. Both assertions defy not only the evidence but logic as well.”

Excuse us, Miss Liar, this was a well planned attack,to coincide with 9/11 anniversary, and nobody ever heard or seen the video!

And Administration officials themselves who originally attributed the Benghazi attack to the video  retracted that account following criticism.

Clinton also writes that she didn’t see cables requesting additional security, a point she made during her congressional testimony in 2013.

Isn't this your job as Secretary of State, Miss President Wannabe?
If you didn't see the cables, you have no business being an administrator of State Department. Stay in retirement! 

Listen to this Chutzpah:
"Those who exploit this tragedy over and over as a political tool minimize the sacrifice of those who served our country,”

Miss "old bag" .....  an ambassador of the United States was brutally raped and then murdered, you don't think we ought to know what happened?"

Miss ("At this point, what difference does it make?") Clinton,"stay out of our lives! 

Gedolim speak to 10,000 empty chairs, set for Ladies Asifah against the internet!

The Yeshivah World Blog reports that the Gedolim spoke to 10,000 ladies at an Asifah whose agenda was to rant  against the internet, but they only posted pictures of empty chairs!

Just asking: Who was taking care of  the approximately 50,000 children that were home?

Another dumb question: why were they afraid to post the pictures of the ladies? For The guys on the internet? The guys know where to look if they want to look at ladies; they aren't looking at the "Asifah Cholent Ladies" believe me on this one!

No cheesecake to the husbands this Yom Tov! No time for that, must run to the Asifah!


10,000 invisible ladies

Some more invisible ladies


Gedolim addressing the empty chairs

More Gedolim addressing empty chairs!
This Gadol closes his eyes, not to G-D forbid peek at an empty chair!

Meir Porush tells embattled Jews in Europe that "It may not be better for Jews in Israel"

Sounds familiar?
Didn't the Satmarer Rebbe, R' Yoel Teitelbaum z"l, and the Belzer Rebbe z'l and others tell European Jews to stay where they are before WW2 broke out? Even those who held visas to Palestine?

Well, this Shaygatz, Meir "PourCrap' Porush is mimicking those same words to the Jews that are facing severe anti-Semitism in the European countries!

Tell me, guys, why is this not like what the "meraglim" said?
I'll bet that in a couple of years the Yeshivishe World will re-write what this "Shaigatz" just said.

MK Meir Porush of United Torah Judaism today dismissed a call by presidential hopeful MK Meir Sheetrit of Hatnua on European Jews to move to Israel, in the wake of the strengthening of extremist parties in the European parliament.
Arutz Sheva reports that Porush responded to Sheetrit by saying that the situation in Israel for chareidim may not be better than in Europe. “Over there they are interested in preventing the Jews from their share of the budget and here it is done to the chareidim,” he charged.

40 Beit Hillel "Gedolim" Pasken that Girls Can Join the IDF!


The Beit Hillel association of national-religious rabbis issued a ruling in Jewish law on Wednesday that women are permitted to perform military service, despite the longstanding opposition by the Chief Rabbinate and several senior rabbis.

The ruling came on the same day that a Knesset committee hearing found that the majority of religious girls’ schools do not allow the IDF to brief pupils about their enlistment options.
 
The debate surrounding national-religious women serving in the army has become increasingly strong within the community, as increasing numbers of women from the sector have enlisted.

In January, Sephardi Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef reiterated the Chief Rabbinate’s longstanding prohibition on women’s enlistment, which prompted Finance Minister and Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid to call for him to be fired.

Additionally, senior rabbinical figures from the national-religious community’s more conservative wing, such as Safed Chief Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu, have come out strongly against the phenomenon and have actively tried to halt the trend.

In the position paper that Beit Hillel issued on Wednesday, the association provided various sources from Jewish legal texts, emphasizing in particular not only the permissibility of women serving in the army, but women’s obligation to take part in wars for the defense of the Jewish people and the national effort required for this task.
“The purpose of this position paper is to encourage young women to enlist in the service of the people and the land – substantial service, whether in the national service program or in the IDF, as befits someone who sees herself as a graduate of the religious- Zionist education system,” the organization’s rabbis wrote.

In 1950, chief rabbis Yitzhak Halevi Herzog and Ben-Zion Meir Hai Uziel issued a ruling explicitly forbidding women to join the IDF.

The national service program was established to provide a solution for religious women who nevertheless wanted to contribute to the state.

One of the central concerns in Jewish law on the issue is the comparison that the Talmud makes between “men’s clothes” – which women are forbidden to wear – and military weapons. This comparison – along with a statement in the Talmud that “it is not the way of women to go to war” – was the basis for rabbinic bans on women’s enlistment.

More than 40 rabbis from Beit Hillel deliberated these and other issues in recent months and issued their decision, which argues that medieval Jewish scholars’ interpretation of the relevant Talmudic passages does not prevent women from serving in the army, especially since the wars and military operations Israel conducts today can be considered obligatory under Jewish law due to the real threat to Jewish lives.

According to Beit Hillel director Rabbi Ronen Neuwirth, statements in recent years from senior rabbis in the national-religious community – including Eliyahu, who said serving in the army was a sin for girls, and Ramat Gan Chief Rabbi Yaakov Ariel, who has also forbidden female military service – have put the hundreds of girls who do military service in an awkward position.
“They felt let down by the senior rabbinic leadership, and we received numerous messages from such girls who were worried how they would be viewed in the community,” Neuwirth said.

The Beit Hillel rabbis also leveled criticism at the Chief Rabbinate, saying that while its position had not changed, society in general, including the national-religious community, had changed.

However, Rabbi Shlomo Aviner – a prominent national religious figure and dean of the Ateret Yerushalayim yeshiva in Jerusalem’s Old City – criticized Beit Hillel for its ruling, saying that it did not have sufficient authority to make such decisions, and noting that several senior rabbis had forbidden female enlistment.
“They are good people [in Beit Hillel], but it is the great arbiters of Jewish law who may rule on such weighty issues,” Aviner told The Jerusalem Post on Wednesday. “They don’t have the legitimacy or authority, and neither do I, to make such innovations, and for sure not to overrule the Chief Rabbinate.”

The rabbi said even non-combat roles in the IDF were unsuitable for women, since they involved inappropriate contact with men and were immodest.

In reference to the growing numbers of religious girls joining the army regardless of rabbinic prohibitions and the rabbinic leadership’s position, Aviner said that “the criteria of truth are not pragmatic; truth is not what people do. Sometimes people make a mistake, and there’s a need to redress the mistake.”

Beit Hillel’s position paper included a section relating to possible problems for women in the army regarding contact with men, and the possibility of suffering form sexual harassment. However, it said that the IDF had changed significantly in recent years and had become much more protective of women in its ranks against such harassment.

The organization also recommended that religious women wishing to join the IDF seek to enlist in units such as Intelligence, the Education Corps and others where there are specific frameworks for them.

Also on Wednesday, the Knesset Committee for the Advancement of the Status of Women and Gender Equality found that 70 percent of religious girls’ schools did not allow IDF personnel to present information about enlistment to their pupils.

Committee chairwoman Aliza Lavie (Yesh Atid) criticized this position, calling it a failure of the religious school system.
“The Council for the State Religious Education System has turned a blind eye to the issue of women’s enlistment in the IDF and the changes that are happening among national religious girls,” Lavie said.

New York Times & the Liberal Media, Distort Radical Muslim Terrorism



Not all Muslims are terrorists; many are the first victims of Islamism. Many Muslims and ex-Muslims have risked their lives and limbs to protest Muslim-on-Muslim and Muslim-men-on-Muslim-women atrocities.

Nevertheless, while all Muslims are not terrorists, most terrorists today are Muslims who
 a) are practicing their own versions of 7th century Islam and have instituted Sharia as sovereign law in their nations;

 b) have “hijacked” what could, if reformed, become a modern and more tolerant religion;

c) are totalitarian madmen who mean to terrify and subordinate large populations and indoctrinate impoverished male children and young men as well as women to take up arms and perform martyrdom operations in a Holy War against the Infidels in order to establish a global Caliphate;

d) are radical fundamentalist extremists, no different than other fundamental extremists.

In the first five months of 2014, Muslim terrorist attacks have been launched in 36 countries: Afghanistan, Algeria, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Cameroon, Central African Republic (CAR), Chechnya, China, Dagestan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Djibouti , Egypt, Ghana, India, Iraq, Iran, Israel, Jordan, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria, Pakistan, the Philippines, Russia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tanzania, Thailand, Tunisia, Turkey, Turkmenistan, the United States, and Yemen.

However, if you read The New York Times you will not have this perspective.
You will have been informed, day after day, that Israel is a genocidal, apartheid state--
not that Sudan, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Afghanistan are;
 that Muslims are being persecuted, falsely accused, singled out in hate crimes and entrapped by the police to report on mosque activities both in Europe and in the United States; that individual acts of terrorism aka “Sudden Jihad Syndrome” are always the acts of lone madmen and must be classified as “workplace violence as was Dr. Nidal Hassan’s massacre at Ft Hood;” that conservative Christians are even greater terrorist threats than Muslims are.

On May 13, 2014, Steven Emerson, had to pay for a full page ad in the Times in order to say all this.

 By May 23, Emerson had attracted criticism for running an “Islamophobic” ad. Not surprisingly, his main critic was CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations.

Islamic terrorism is not the only subject missing in action.

Over the years, the Paper of Record has covered honor killings in India when they are committed by Hindus. According to studies  in this area, Hindus do perpetrate vicious honor killings for caste-related reasons and they sometimes kill boys as well as girls. Hindus do not tend to bring this tribal/ethnic/cultural/religious custom with them when they immigrate to the West.
Mainly, Muslims, and some Sikhs do. Muslims also honor kill for different and for more varied reasons.

Muslims mainly kill girls and women, not boys and men.

The NYT has failed to report most of the honor killings that have occurred in the United States, possibly because they have mainly been committed by Muslims.

To their credit, the Times has increasingly been covering the relentless “tribal” barbarism against girls and women in Muslim Southeast and Central Asia and in Africa, as well as honor related crimes in Afghanistan.

Does everyone now understand that Muslims consider all children “Muslims” who are born to a Muslim father?

This is precisely the reason the Sudanese government is claiming the right to execute a woman whose father was Muslim, who abandoned the family, whose mother is Christian, and who raised her daughter as a Christian?

By that same logic President Obama’s father was a Muslim. That's why  Muslims consider the
president a Muslim!
 He is seen as a Muslim by religious Muslims!

Yom Yerushalayim

Did you know that until now, 10,000 Kollel guys were getting Stipends from the Zionists?


Well, you know now!  
The "cursed" Zionists were supporting the Avreichim for the last, don't even know how many years," and never got one thank you!
That's why you never knew that they received the stipends! They kept it a secret. Even the Satmar guys who were screaming that they don't take a penny from the "medinah" were getting the stipends!

Now the Israeli Supreme Court ruled that it is illegal and discriminatory!

The ones who are really masmidim will continue to get the Stipends!

So now, we will hear from all the "gedolim" how cruel the Zionists are!

By the way, I believe that the Stipends should be given to break the poverty cycle and help families with alot of children.

My point is that they never thanked the government and now they  scream "Foul Play!"
Maybe if they would have had some Hakoras Hatoiv, it never would have come to this point!

So here is the report from Arutz Sheva:

"In another major blow to the chareidi tzibur in Israel, the Supreme Court on Sunday, 25 Iyar 5774, abolished supplementary income for avreichim.

A seven justice panel headed by Court President Justice Asher Grunis rendered its decision to eliminate the supplementary income payments to avreichim made by the state. The court’s ruling was written by Justice Elyakim Rubinstein, a member of the dati leumi community.

The court’s ruling spoke of the inequality associated with the payments made to the avreichim and the fact that it does not contribute to getting chareidim out into the workplace. The petition challenging the payments was filed by a number of organizations including  Ometz, Yisrael Chofshit, and the Conservative Movement.

Rubinstein wrote that the government decision to continue with the supplementary payments is not in line with efforts to get chareidim to join the workplace but quite the contrary as they continue to avail themselves of the existing situation which permits them to receive payments.
“The government’s decision is not fair and affects other sectors” the justices added.

The court also took issue with funding for avreichim. In the court’s view, they are permitted under the law to study for four years during which they are not compelled to acquire a skill or academic training towards earning a livelihood. The court points out that upon completion of the four year period the avreich lacks professional skills to enable him to enter the workforce, questioning the wisdom of the government’s decision.

The court did stipulate that one who is classified as a masmid may continue receiving funds since their entire life is devoted to limud. 

 Needless to say the initial reaction from chareidi lawmakers is one of anger and contempt for the High Court, pointing out “what the government and Knesset have not done to the chareidi tzibur the Supreme Court is now doing”.

Pope wears the checkered black and white headscarf, the symbol of the Palestinian cause!


In  unscripted moment, Pope Frances prayed at the Israeli separation barrier surrounding the biblical West Bank town and briefly donned the checkered black and white headscarf that is a symbol of the Palestinian cause.

Here is a guy that represents a religion that tortured and murdered Jews throughout the ages, and to further the "cause of peace" he puts on the Palestinan Kaffiya, and prays at the separation wall that keeps out, the blood thirsty murdering arabs!
With friends like him, we don't need enemies!

Peres, the President of Israel accepted an invite from this communist Pope to "daven" for peace at the Vatican!
Mr. Pope .... I have a message to you: "take off your  kippah and give it to the bareheaded Peres!
You deserve each other!

Israeli couple among Brussels Jewish museum shooting victims

A Belgian news site reported that two of the three fatalities from the shooting at Brussels’ Jewish museum were an Israeli couple.

The two Israeli tourists killed in a shooting attack at the Brussels Jewish Museum were named on Sunday as Tel Aviv residents Emanuel (54) and Miriam (53) Riva.

The third fatality was a female volunteer at the Jewish Museum of Belgium, according to an unconfirmed report Saturday night on the news site HLN.be, which is the online edition of the Het Laatste Nieuws daily. A fourth victim, whom HLN reported was a 23-year-old employee of the museum, is in hospital in critical condition.

Police has no suspects in custody, the news site also reported.
The shooter aimed for the victims throats and heads, witnesses told the daily.

According to HLN.be, police no longer suspect a person whom they detained shortly after the attack. that person is currently regarded as a witness, HLN.be reported.

Authorities are looking for the shooter, who was driven to the museum by a suspected accomplice in an Audi car, and the driver and are analysing security camera footage.

Four people were killed at a Jewish museum in Belgium on Saturday in an attack that European Jewish leaders are already comparing to 2012’s massacre at the Ozar HaTorah school in Toulouse, France.

The attack, which took place at the Jewish Museum in central Brussels on Saturday, is being approached as racially motivated by Belgian authorities, who posited that it was motivated by anti-Semitism.

Belgium's interior minister, Joëlle Milquet, was quoted saying by the RTBF Belgian television station that anti-Semitic motives could be behind the attack.

"It's a shooting ... at the Jewish Museum," she was quoted saying. "All of this can lead to suspicions of an act of anti-Semitism.”


Brussels Mayor Yvan Mayeur told the BBC as stating that the shooting was likely a terror attack and that the choice of location “isn't a coincidence.”

About half of Belgium's 42,000-strong Jewish community lives in Brussels.

A spokesman for the Brussels fire brigade said the shooter drove up to the museum, went inside and fired shots.

"According to the information we have at the moment, it was a solitary shooter and it seems to have happened inside the museum," Pierre Meys, Brussels fire brigade spokesman, told French channel BFM TV.

Security around all Jewish institutions in the country has been raised to the highest level, and Prime Minister Elio Di Rupo was meeting with police and senior officials to discuss the situation.

According to the European Jewish Congress, a crisis center organized by the Consistoire Central and the Coordinating Committee of Belgian Jewish Organizations (CCOJB) along with other communal leaders has opened and is in contact with local and national authorities.

Speaking with the Jerusalem Post, Consistoire head Baron Julien Klener said that he had met with the Prime Minister Elio Di Rupo and other senior officials and that authorities are “trying to find the suspects.”

Avi Shafran takes Rabbi Wein to task, because R' Wein said that the Gedolim were "wrong" in reference to the Holocaust!


AVI SHAFRAN

Rabbi Wein had written an article two weeks ago, that said in effect, that some of the Gedolim in Europe were wrong when they advised people to stay in Europe rather then emigrate to the then Palestine or USA! Who knows how many were murdered because of this bad advice!
Rabbi Wein never said that the Gedolim wern't Tzaddikim, just that they wern't prophets!

The Agudah and the Yeshivishe World went crazy when they saw the essay of a prominent, well respected Rabbi and Historian, writing, what we are all thinking. They went into panic mode running around like poisoned mice. The former Rosh Yeshiva of Shaarei Torah, saying that the Gedolim could actually make mistakes.

They were terrified that some of their sheep would read his essay, and finally discover the truth, so they commissioned this "shmendrik" to respond.
They hired Avi Shafran, the "know it all"  currently the  Director of Public Affairs for Agudath Israel of America, to write a rebuttal!

Here read his response!


There exists a mentality, even among some who should know better, like the respected popular historian Rabbi Berel Wein, that any one of us can, and even should, second-guess the attitudes and decisions of Torah luminaries of the past.

In that thinking, for instance, the opposition of many Gedolim in the 1930s and 1940s to the establishment of a Jewish state was a regrettable mistake. After all, the cavalier thinking goes, a state was in the end established, and in many ways it flourishes; so the Gedolim who opposed it must have been wrong. And we should acknowledge their error and impress it upon our children with a nationalistic commemoration of the day on which Israel declared her independence.

None of us, however, can possibly know what the world would be like today had Israel not come into being. What would have happened to the European survivors of the Holocaust who moved to Israel?  Would they have languished in the ruins of Europe and eventually disappeared instead? Rebuilt their communities?  Emigrated to the West? Would Eretz Yisrael have remained a British mandate, become a part of Jordan, morphed into a new Arab state? Would Jews have been barred from their homeland, tolerated by those overseeing it, or perhaps welcomed by them to live there in peace? Would there have been more Jewish casualties than the tens of thousands killed in wars and terrorist attacks since Israel’s inception, or fewer? Is the physical danger today to the millions of Jews in their homeland lesser or greater?

Would the widespread anti-Semitism that masquerades as anti-Zionism have asserted itself just as strongly as now? (A recent ADL survey revealed that Jews are hated by 87% to 93% of the populaces of North Africa and Middle East, and that the most widely held stereotype about Jews is that they “are more loyal to Israel” than their own countries.) Or would Jew-hatred have been undermined or attenuated by the lack of a sufficiently “sanitized” mask?

I don’t know the answer to any of those questions, of course. Neither, though, just as obviously, does anyone else, no matter how wise he may be or conversant with the facts of history. For we are dealing here not with history but with retroactive prophecy. And that’s something no one alive possesses.

Yet some people, understandably uncomfortable with even theoretically imagining an Israel-less world, sermonize as if they do know the unknowable, as if the very fact that a state of Israel exists means that those who opposed its establishment were misguided.

Please don’t misunderstand. Every sane and sensitive Jew today supports Israel’s security needs, and appreciates the fact that we can freely live in or visit our homeland; and that the state and its armed forces seek to protect all within the country’s borders.

We are makir tov for the good that previous governments in Israel have in fact provided Klal Yisrael, the support it has given its religious communities, yeshivos, Bais Yaakovs and mosdos chessed.

And more.



None of that, though, need come along with an abandonment of respect for great leaders of Klal Yisrael who felt that a different path to Jewish recovery from the Holocaust would have been wiser. 



Many of those leaders, of course, once Israel became a reality, “recalculated,” as our GPSs do at times, and accepted the state, even counseled participation in its political process. But they were adjusting to developments, not recanting their judgments, which were based on their perception that a secular state would, at one point or another, seek to adversely affect its religious citizens. A perception, it should be noted, that has been borne out by numerous policies and actions, from yaldei Teiman and yaldei Teheran to the agenda of the Lapids, père et fils.


The Gedolim who lived during the Holocaust, too, have been subjected to retroactive prophets’ harsh judgment.  Those who counseled Jews to remain in Europe, in the hope that political and military developments would take a different turn than they tragically did are blithely second-guessed.  Here, too, none of us can know with surety the “what-ifs?” or even the “whys?”

Not to mention that Gedolim are wise men, not prophets. Their guidance in each generation, which the Torah itself admonishes us to heed, does not assure us of any particular outcome. It is based, though, on their sublime connection to Torah, and thus must be of paramount importance to us. It’s odd how few would think of disparaging an expert doctor or lawyer whose best advice, following the prescribed protocol, led to a place the patient or client didn’t envision. Even if the outcome was unhappy, one would say, the advisors did their job. When it comes Gedolim, though, some wax judgmental and condescending.
And it’s not an armchair issue. There are implications to disparaging the decisions of the true Jewish leaders of the past. It sets the stage for what, in our contemporary self-centered, blog-sodden and audaciously opinionated world, recalls the true prophet’s phrase “each man acting according to what is right in his own eyes.”
And the prophet is not lauding that state of affairs.

Saudi Family hang their Ethiopian Maid upside down on a hook and beat her to a pulp! Video

These are the people, that the US, wants Israel to negotiate with:

Saudi Arabian Family hang their Ethiopian maid upside down from a hook and beat her to a bloody pulp. She is drenched in blood from the whips and sticks that the Saudi men use to beat her.
Non-European Foreign workers in the Gulf states are treated as de-facto Slaves, with no human rights and are kept as virtual prisoners by their respective “employers” and forced to endure harsh treatment for little pay.
A recent report by Amnesty International slammed the worsening state of human rights abuses in the country. Among the myriad criticisms leveled in the report, it was noted that migrant workers and other minorities regularly suffer abuse and “excessive use of force” at the hands of authorities.

Boro Park Chapel "Shomrei Ha"Chomos Disgrace the Dead!

Unfortunately, the people who lose loved ones, are at the mercy of the Frum Chapels who charge a small fortune to transport and bury the dead. One of these rip-offs is a chapel called "Shomrei Ha'Chomos" on Ft. Hamilton Parkway in Boro-Park, who are just interested in your mighty dollar, and don't really care about the body, throwing them around as of it were a football.
Here you see a picture of a body that fell out of the casket on the floor!
People tell me that this is a daily occurrence!

Lakewood Rabbonim Blame All Tragedies in Lakewood on Women!


Lakewood Rabbonim have been proven to be a bunch of liars. 
There was an Asifah for ladies called "והי' מחנך קודש'' and the Rabbonim of Lakewood promised that there would be no more Hatzalah calls or tragedies in Lakewood if only the woman would shorten their shaitels!

A Robo call went out, stating that since the Asifah, no Hatzalah Calls!!!!!!!!

Well! Just yesterday 3 year old Yocheved Abraham was killed by a car in a driveway!

This is why people have no more respect for Rabbonim!
Maybe the tragedies happened because of all the Ponzi ripoffs!
Maybe because of the massive Chillul Hashem that the Lakewood Rabbonim did when they made the Yom Tefilah against Israel!
 To blame all tragedies on women is insane!

Rabbi Shmuel Waldman, author of "Beyond a Reasonable Doubt" arrested on Child Porn Charges!

They are people children are supposed to trust: A New York Police Department officer, a Fire Department of New York paramedic, a rabbi and a scoutmaster were among more than 70 people arrested in a major child porn bust, authorities said Wednesday.


Samuel Waldman, a rabbi and an instructor of Judaic studies, was arrested at his Brooklyn residence and charged under federal law with possession of child pornography, prosecutors said. Using a file sharing system, agents identified Waldman's IP address as one that offered the dissemination of videos of child pornography.

To The YeshivaWorld Blog
STAY OUT OF OUR BUSINESS!

Taxes in Rockland County are the highest in the nation, and these parasites want us to vote Yes, so they can get more programs! The whole article is misleading and a pack of lies!

East Ramapo Residents are sick and tired of funding empty school buildings. They are also afraid of the investigations into the East Ramapo Board, and believe they will pacify Albany if they voted YES!
They want to pacify the Public School Parents!
Each Public School Child cost us now $25,000.00 per year! Insane!

The ones pushing the YES VOTE are the Frum Teachers and Psychologists who want us shmegeggies, to fund their overblown pensions.
The Yeshivas are also pushing this Yes vote, because of the busing for Sundays and Legal Holidays!
Well, I got news for you guys, I had children in East Ramapo and we used Carpooling for those days!

The Millionaires of Rabbi Veiner's Shul and the Yukels' of Rabbi Senter's Shul are also backing this asinine budget! G-D only knows Why! 
They probably want us all  G-D Forbid, to go bankrupt so that we can go to their palaces on Purim, to beg for a couple of dollars, while they sit at the head of the table drinking, Grey Goose!

Eli Weiner of Areivim is the one who wrote this garbage on The Yeshiva World!

We are fed up with the lies, and the funding of programs, programs, programs and more programs!
The whole article is deception, don't believe one word, and vote NO!!!!!!!

Alex Gold of Camp Dora Golding sued for Covering Up Counselor's molesting 12 year old Monsey Boy!

Chisda Ben-Porat, Molestor
The family of a 12-year-old Monsey boy has sued a Pennsylvania sleep-away camp, claiming a counselor molested their child and another camper last July before the owner tried covering up the abuse and gave the counselor a bus ticket home to Canada.

The lawsuit says the Monsey boy videoed the counselor molesting the other boy and accuses Camp Dora Golding and its owner, Alexander Gold of Brooklyn, of knowing the counselor had an attraction to younger boys.

The camp, which serves Orthodox Jewish children, also is accused in the 20-page lawsuit of covering up past sexual abuses. Many families in Rockland and Orange counties send their children to the camp, the family's lawyer said.

The boy's father said his wife received a call from Gold telling them there was an incident at camp but their son was OK and provided no other details. Concerned, the couple left immediately for the camp, where their son told them what had happened.

"I was flipping out," the boy's father said last week. "They are not the first ones. On the way home from the camp, I was crying like a baby. "I am now a lot more paranoid with the rest of my kids," the father of four said. "I feel our life has been violated by Gold and the camp."

Gold denied the charges through his lawyer, Matthew Flanagan.
"We are confident that the family and their lawyer will come to learn that Mr. Gold did not cover up anything," Flanagan said in an e-mail statement, "and that the camp acted entirely appropriately both before and after the incident to protect this child and all of the campers."

The counselor, Chisdai Ben-Porath, 20, who is named in the lawsuit, pleaded guilty in February to molesting the Monsey boy. He was sentenced to 5 to 23 months in Monroe County jail in Pennsylvania.

The family's lawyer, Brian Condon of Nanuet, and the boy's father said Gold refused to let him call his parents and first lied to parents about what happened to the two campers.

They said the boy's 2-minute video shows Ben-Porath picking up a camper and grinding his torso against the child at about 12:30 a.m. July 11. Ben-Porath then went to the Monsey boy's bunk and began massaging the child's buttock as the boy pretended to sleep in hopes that the counselor would ignore him.

The boy then jumped up, saw Ben-Porath looked sexually aroused and went under his bunk, telling Ben-Porath that he was looking for a computer game for his iPod Touch, according to his father and the family's lawsuit.

Condon said the other camper's family declined to press criminal charges against Ben-Porath or join the civil lawsuit.
"This is not a Jewish or Catholic issue," Condon said. "This is about pervert adults preying on the innocence of the kids. This is about a camp not doing background checks on the counselors and covering up sexual abuse."

Ben-Porath's lawyer, former Rockland District Attorney Kenneth Gribetz, acknowledged the content of the videotape. He said his client had no prior criminal record, recognized that what he did was wrong and is undergoing therapy. He said the Pennsylvania Sexual Offender Assessment Board did not deem Ben-Porath a sexually violent predator.

Gribetz said he expected Ben-Porath will be released after his July parole hearing and later deported to Canada.
The Monsey boy's father said he was angry at the lax attitude of the state police and prosecutors toward the abuse. He said if he and his wife had not pushed for an arrest, Ben-Porath would have been on a bus to Canada.
He said he agreed to downgrade the criminal charges to spare his son from testifying and being publicly identified. He also said he got phone calls from some rabbis and community members urging him to drop the charges.

Frum Soldiers from Beit Shemesh Will Now Wear Civilian Clothes when leaving their houses because of the Frum Animals that Attack Them!

This story should make frum Jews, cry!

Frum Soldiers will now wear civilian clothes when they leave or return to their homes in Beit Shemesh, from their prospective  military bases, because "Shomrei Torah U'mitzvos People" are attacking them physically.

The 6 million Kedoshim that got murdered in the Holocaust, are turning in their graves.  They would have embraced,  kissed and hugged these soldiers!

I can never forget the feeling, when on my first trip to Israel in the 1970's,  I walked down the stairs of the airplane, and there on the tarmac, stood Israeli Soldiers with rifles protecting the passengers disembarking. I was just a teenager, and my eyes were filled with tears. "Wow! A Jewish Soldier! For the first time in 2,000 years, we have Jewish soldiers!"

Where are our Torah leaders? Where? Why is it ok to beat up a soldier?
Where did they get the "heter" to beat another Jew, who is actually there to protect them?
 Didn't Moshe Raabeinu call the Jew who just lifted his hand to strike another Jew, but didn't actually hit him, a RASHA?

Do the bastards that beat these soldiers ever give any thought about that Yiddish Neshama that they are beating? Doesn't that soldier have a mother, a father, a brother,sister, a wife or even a child, that will now hurt?

I say, if you have the compulsion to beat another Jew, be he a Yeshivishe guy or a Soldier, move to Ramalla!

IDF officials have come to the realization that for Zealots living in Beit Shemesh, seeing a black yarmulke and olive green attire is a red flag, one that leads to attacks against frum soldiers in too many cases. Therefore IDF officials have given an order permitting Beit Shemesh residents to travel to and from their homes in civilian garb. The new directive, which applies to soldiers and officers alike, was issued a number of months ago. According to the Walla News report soldiers change their clothing in the central bus station to avoid being seen in Beit Shemesh in uniform, a reality that has provoked acts of violence against them. A number of soldiers and officers submitted requests, seeking to travel to and from their home community in civilian clothing. The report quotes the Beit Shemesh soldiers saying that by and large they live in peace in the community but the small number of zealots is unwilling to accept seeing a frum person in an IDF uniform.

Chareidie IDF Soldier reunites with his mother, a Catholic! Video

A heart-warming reunion took place on Wednesday, as a Nahal Hareidisoldier saw his Catholic mother for the first time in over six years after she was flown in from Colombia to be with him at a completion ceremony.





Diego Tapia was born to a Catholic family in Colombia, and began his spiritual journey in earnest while in university. After connecting to the uniqueness of Judaism, Tapia traveled to Israel to convert to Judaism and make his life in the Holy Land as a Jew.

At the age of 28 Tapia chose to enlist in the IDF's Nahal Hareidi, which caters to the hareidi Jewish community. He was given a surprise at the ceremony concluding his intensive training, after the Nahal Hareidi Foundation flew in his mother and sister from Colombia so that he would have family present at his graduation like the other soldiers.

"It's a feeling of joy, It is a great excitement and a big surprise," Tapia's mother Mercedes said, after taking the 20-hour flight from Bogota to Tel Aviv in less than a day's notice to surprise Diego at the ceremony.

Rabbi David Fuchs of the Nahal Hareidi Foundation commented on the surprise reunion, saying "the hugs between the mother and her son brought everyone to tears during this event. It was one of the most breathtaking events of my life."

Tapia's journey to Judaism began after he became fascinated by two famous Jewish philosophical texts written in the Middle Ages: Rabbi Yehuda Halevi's "Kuzari," and Rambam's "Guide for the Perplexed."

"Diego didn't find the idea of connecting this material world to spirituality in any other religion," relates on of Tapia's friends. "Most religions speak of disconnecting from the body and this world for you to link yourself to G-d. 

They are too spiritual, and usually address you to meditation and self-contemplation. But the basic creed in Judaism is to connect the temporal and eternal trough actual acts, and that what appealed to Diego."
Tapia flew to Jerusalem to study in a yeshiva, and went through a full process of conversion that lasted more than three years, before deciding to enlist in the army of the Jewish state.

Nissan Kaplan Apologizes for his "Kill the Generals" Schmooze


I want to thank my readers for calling the Mirrer Yeshivah. The administration e-mailed us and told us that an apology from Kaplan would be forthcoming, and here it is! 
They said that over a thousand parents called for his immediate removal.

A rabbi from Israel’s leading strictly-Orthodox yeshivah has apologised for saying that Israel’s government ministers deserve death.
Nissan Kaplan, a rabbi at the prestigious Mir Yeshivah, whose classes draw upwards of 200 students, said in a recent discourse on the weekly Torah portion that he not only advocates killing ministers, but also that he educates his children in this spirit.
He told students that his five-year-old son said: “Daddy, we don't have a sword in the house, I'm looking... maybe a hammer is also good? I was very happy, I gave him a kiss... I was so proud of my son, he's looking for a sword to kill all these government ministers.”
His logic was that because the government plans to draft the strictly-Orthodox to the army, its ministers are the modern equivalent of Haman, who tried to kill the Jews in the Purim story. They are also representatives of “Amalek”, the ancient foe of the Jews whose elimination is prescribed by the Bible. He claimed to be invoking proclamations of the Aharon Leib Shteinman, one of the best-respected Charedi rabbis today, in this assertion.
But the US-born rabbi told the JC on Friday: “I apologise completely,” adding that an “apology is not enough” and that he had disavowed his earlier statements in three classes on Thursday night and Friday.
He “never meant such a thing”. The story about his son was “just a joke” he claimed, saying: “You have to know my sense of humour.”
And while rabbis tend to encourage students to be punctilious about accurately attributing opinions, he suggested that he had assigned Rabbi Shteinman’s alleged opinion to him without justification. “Maybe someone in the street said it. I didn’t see Rabbi Shteinman and I didn’t hear [this view],” he said, adding: “The one I really have to apologise to is Rabbi Shteinman.”
Asked about violent acts against ministers, Rabbi Kaplan said: “It is an aveira [sin] to do such a thing” and said that faced with the draft of Charedi men “the only thing we can do is learn [Torah] — we don’t hit and we don’t fight”. His apology is unambiguous, he said, calling it a “black and white” matter.
But despite requests, he did not fully explain the dissonance between what he said in the original class and what he claims now to be his view. He gave only general comments such as: “Sometimes when you are sitting, something was said in the wrong way” and “maybe someone got me excited here.”
His intended message, he claimed, was to underscore the importance of Torah study. “The message is that learning is of key importance and there are things that the people of Israel gave up all these years for learning. The meaning was not that we have to fight, God forbid.”

Kretchnefer Rebbe On Pesach Sheni!

The Rebbe Leaning while eating his Matzah on Pesach Sheni! He is going to need a Pesach Shlishi, because he ate the matzah in "Tumah" since we cannot be "Tahor" until we have the Parah Adumah!
I don't have that Mesorah! My Mesorah is to go to work and punch a clock!

Rabbi Nissan Kaplan, Mir Magid Shiur, Advocates the Murder of Israeli Generals!

The Crazed Animal Kaplan
When Litvaks become fanatical, they become crazier than the Neturei Karta or Satmar!
Rabbi Nissan Kaplan Mirrer Magid Shiur, gave a shmooze a couple of weeks ago and outright called for the murder of Israeli Government Officials!

He said that  Rav Shteinman is the one who ordered this Fatwa! Kaplan said that the only reason, he isn't actually going out to murder them now, is because at this time "they don't have a general that wants to lead this war!"

In the shmooze, he added that he mentioned this "Shteinman Psak" at his Shabbos table, and that his five year old asked if he could kill the generals  "with a hammer." When his son asked this brilliant question, Kaplan kissed him!

He then told a cab driver, the big "Chochmeh" of his little 5 year-old terrorist. When the cab driver asked him, why is he different than an Arab terrorist, he gives the cab driver a convoluted, twisted, answer!

My friends, this crazed lunatic is a Magid Shiur  in the Mirrer Yeshivah in Yerushalayim, and speaks to impressionable young minds. He is talking to your children! He is advocating murder!

What will you do, when your child hearing a shmooze such as this gets caught up in the moment and kills an IDF soldier?
Farfetched? I don't think so! They are already beating up Frum Soldiers!
Soldiers will now be on guard every time they see a Yeshiva Bocher; the soldier may take any gesture from the Bocher as an impending attack, and G-D only knows what tragedy can happen!

This maniac is a Rodef according to Halacha!  If an Imam from Gaza would have given this schmooze, we would want him arrested! But this guy is speaking in a mainstream Yeshivah and so far he is continuing to spew his vitriol and hatred with impunity!

Pick up a phone and call the Mirrer Yeshivah in Yerushlayim and tell them to remove this animal NOW!!!
+972 2-582-1845

 The "Behimeh" continues with his diatribe, and says  that this is no different than the Chanukah Story, when the Maccabees went to war with the "Yevonim," the Greeks, and killed them. This deranged animal explained that all the "Yevonim" wanted from the Jews, was for the "Yeshivah Boys to play ball on their break." And because of this Greek Decree, that Yeshivah boys must play ball during their break, the Maccabees murdered the YeVonim!
I am not making this up, you can hear this Meshuginer  with your own ears, speaking in fluent English, all you have to do is click below! and hear at the 36.50 mark
You will hear this
"On Shabbos I spoke to my kids, and I said that Rav Steinman spoke that lemayseh, we have today Haman and Amalek, all this [Israeli] government, and really the way is to take knives and to kill them, just as with the Yevanim. This is what Rav Steinman said. You have to take a sword and to kill them. So why are we not doing it? Because, he said, I don't know yet who is the general who could run the war. But if I would know who's the general, we'd go out with knives. This is what Rav Steinman said. There's a war against religion... I explained this to my kids... then, in the middle of the meal, my kid, five years old, says, "Aba, we don't have a sword in the house, I'm looking... maybe a hammer is also good?" I was very happy, I gave him a kiss... I was so proud of my son, he's looking for a sword to kill all these government ministers... "

Mr. Kaplan, convert to Islam, G-D, doesnt want or need your perverted Torah! You may very well be a grandchild of Avraham Aveenu, but from his wife Hagar, not Sarah!
The Israeli government must lock this guy up for life and take his kids away, he is a menace to society!
