Instead of doing their jobs to spread love for other Jews, Chareidei Rabbonim decided to use the festival of Purim to use their influence to poison and instill blatant hatred against their fellow Jews in uniform ...
This was predicted by the Talmud over 2,000 years ago, when the Chazal foresaw that the leaders of Klall Yisroel during the times of Moshiach will be like "the faces of dogs!"
This time added to the gang of Litvishe Gedoilim, Sfardie Gedoilim signed the edict.....
Remember this when the Sfardie Rabbis in their fancy frocks come schnoor in your schuls.
As the Purim holiday approaches, a group of 35 leading Sephardic haredi rabbis penned a letter expressing their opposition to the popular custom of dressing up as IDF soldiers.
The rabbis wrote that dressing up as soldiers would be improper "at a time when the government is trying to seduce and intimidate the youth," into serving in the army, and alleged that the costumes would legitimize IDF service in the haredi community.
The rabbis wrote that instead of IDF soldiers, "children should be encouraged to dress up like rabbis and righteous people in order to emulate them."
"These costumes have a great influence on the souls of our children and their aspirations and we need to educate them to stay away from this ugliness," added the letter, which was signed by senior rabbis in some of the most prominent Sephardic yeshivas, including Rabbi Shalom Cohen, who heads the Shas party's Council of Torah Sages.
The letter marks the first time that senior rabbis of the Sephardic haredi stream have issued a ban on such costumes. While rabbis from the Lithuanian-haredi stream have been issuing such letters annually since 2013, the Sephardic rabbis are considered more moderate in their attitude towards IDF service.
