Vishnitzer Rebbe Shlita Calling for Achdus


A delegation of rabbonim and leaders of Agudas Yisrael in the United States met on Wednesday with the Vishnitzer Rebbe Shlita, who is being hosted in Boro Park.

The rebbe inquired into the activities of Agudas Yisrael in America and praised the organization’s efforts in combating efforts to ban/limit bris milah.

The rebbe reportedly spoke of the need for achdus in Yahadut HaTorah ahead of elections on 11 Shevat in Eretz Yisrael. The rebbe spoke of the split taking place today among the parties making up Agudas Yisrael, stressing at the end of the day, the party was established להרבות כבוד שמים.

The rebbe stated in Eretz Yisrael the example of Agudah in the United States must be emulated, the ויעשו כולם אגודה אחת, reminding those present how his late father zt”l and other rebbes in the dynasty were moser nefesh for Agudah.

  1. I agree 100% with Ender. If I have a machlokes between myself and a friend it is terrible and against halacha, but involves only 2 people When 2 Rebbes of the same Chassidus (which is happening unfortunately in alot of major Chassidus courts at the moment) fight between them it is a major desaster because they are causing machlokes between their thousands of Chassidim, splitting them into two camps. How many times have I heard a Chassid from one camp insult the Rebbe of the other? How many Rebbes are not talking to their brothere or other relations, because each one of them is running after kovoid, and each want to be Rebbe? Are Rebbes saying that they have a diffrent Shulchan Oruch to us?

  2. 1,2,&3, beautiful coments! but you don’t know what you’re talking! this faction of Viznitz Rabbi Yisrael Shlit”a is not in a fight with any of the other Visnitz! he’s even a chasid of his uncle the Viznitz Rebbe in Monsey!

  3. Number 4, I’m actually related to Rav Lau. And number 5, I have internet without filter and have been told that in some Shuls I can’t get an aliyah as per instruction from Shul’s Chassidishe Rebbes. The same rabbes who have no problem causing machlokes between their thousands of Chassidim, because each Rebbe needs kovoid like others need oxygen.
