Gedoilim of Bnei-Brak now against Kiruv Work in their town

A thoughtful person would say ..... "wow ...what a great opportunity to do Kiruv in Bnei-Brak" but it seems that the big Gedoilim will have nothing to do with it ..... they are worried that all frumkeit will go out the window in Bnei Brak with the new Senior Citizen facility across the street from Rabbi Akiva Street.
Are they so insecure about their followers' frumkeit that they are opposed to a facility catering to Alteh Kockers?

Rabbonim have taken an active role in the battle to prevent the opening of a non-religious senior citizens’ facility on Jabotinsky Street opposite Rabbi Akiva Street in Bnei Brak for fear of the Chilul Shabbos that would be associated with such a facility. 

Among the rabbonim who have signed against the new facility are members of the Moetzas Gedolei Yisrael Shlita, Rabbi Ba’adani, Rabbi Yitzchak Zilberstein, Rabbi Chaim Meir Halevy Wosner, Rabbi Silman, Rabbi Luria, and Rabbi Baruch Weisbecker. The rabbonim explain a large non-religious facility of this size will bring many visitors on Shabbos and Yomim Tovim and result in major Chilul Shabbos.
Askanim in the city blame the city’s local planning board for bringing this project forward. Planning board officials explain that the project was approved by the mayor long before they were brought into the picture. They explain the mayor is working to have the facility become a medical facility treating the geriatric population.

City officials explain they do not have the authority to halt a project that was approved years earlier, but they are working to minimize the problematic issues that would accompany a non-religious senior care facility.

With all due respect, I think the headline here is a distortion of the story.

The picture is also problematic. As far as I know only two of the Chassidic Rebbes in the picture live in Bnei Brak, the Modzitzer & the Vizhnitzer Rebbes. None of the Rebbes pictured are mentioned in your article as signers of the declaration.

Actually, the Gerrer Rebbe shlita does, as well.

The Headline is a reflection of the Gedoilim ...they preach kiruv, yet when Hashem gives them an opportunity at their doorstep ... they totally ignore it ..
The photo is a file photo ...

Beware the Snake said...

Of interest to DIN

Your old "pal" Yossi Mizrachi is in a dust up with the snake & so called "rabbi" Effin' Goldberg of Boca Raton Synagogue. Mizrachi is an idiot but he is right in this case. Goldberg who has been busy protecting molesters & threatening members who have a problem with that is inviting a Catholic missionary to speak. He has no legitimate defense. He thinks that insulting Mizrachi back exonerates him. There are some Huberfeld ponzi guys in Goldberg's shul too.

Now start your bashing of President Trump
Washington - The White House warned Israel on Thursday – in a surprising statement – to cease settlement announcements that are “unilateral” and “undermining” of President Donald Trump’s effort to forge Middle East peace, a senior administration official told The Jerusalem Post.
For the first time, the administration confirmed that Trump is committed to a comprehensive two-state solution to the Israeli- Palestinian conflict negotiated between the parties.
