"Ben Gurion in Gan Eden": Meshi-Zehav

Maran Yehuda Meshi-Zahav


Zaka founder and CEO Yehuda Meshi-Zahav spoke to the press at Mount Herzl, where he was attending the Wednesday evening official Independence Day Ceremony. 

He explained that since he was among the torch-lighters in 2003 he has attends annually, adding it is very emotional for him.

Meshi-Zahav spoke of the “kibbutz galiyos’, the ingathering of the exiles of Jews from around the world. Avos Avoseinu could only dream of this, an independent Jewish state”. 

Meshi-Zahav added that not only is the nation advancing in the physical realm, “but not since Chizkiyahu HaMelech has so much Torah been studied by Am Yisrael. Ben-Gurion is in Gan Eden in the merit of the limud Torah in the State of Israel. Am Yisrael has not known such good days since the destruction of the Second Beis Hamikdash”.

What brings a chareidi to this ceremony?

Meshi-Zahav
I represent Zaka, one of the largest chessed organizations in Israel. I identify with everything taking place here.
Meshi-Zahav added that something needs to be done, explaining on the one hand the chareidim are criticized for not taking party in the ceremony but on the other hand, chareidim are not included. He promises to do something about it by next year’s ceremony.

DIN- pls explain, even if one is the biggest zionist, why Ben-Gurion was a great man and is in Gan Eiden? You can be the biggest frum zionist and still recognize that Ben Gurion hated the torah.

Let me explain.
He didn't hate the Torah. This is a lie. He was a lover of Tanach and learned it all the time... believed that Israel should be a Jewish state. He was however, not religious, having been a Socialist-Marxist since his youth. Obviously, he was wrong about that. I believe it was Rabbi Hazzan, an orthodox rabbi who was his friend and also advisor. Though BG didn't practice religion, he respected the frum though he himself wanted a secular state. Obviously, he wrong about that too.
To say he hated Torah is not true.
You know who else is in Gan Eden ? Yes, Binyomin Zev Herzl, who dies of a broken heart to save Jews from rampant pogroms.
You don't know the chesbonos of Heaven...
Remember R' Yossi's memreh?

" Olam Hafesh ro'eesee," when he saw the spiritual world upstairs.

Again, read a book instead of pappegeing the crock you heard. Research for yourself instead of slurping Malaga....

Hey 5:02...

It's a good Sunday when an anonymous blogger like you, who should be learning Torah instead of bittulm Torah can categorically know who goes or doesn't go to Gan Eden..

Look in Chazal???? Yeah... Chazal tells of at least 2 stories where members of Chazal asked Eliyahu Hanavie who goes to Gan Eden in a certain town...
But you??? You know...!! LOL...

Derby... Pass the cheese blintzes... I want a taam of Gan Eden this morning....
