RABBI LEVIN ON THE NYC ELECTION:
How Should A Real Torah Jew Vote?
Not Bloomberg; Not Thompson!
Both of these men are enthusiastic promoters of America’s headlong plunge into the cruelty and immorality of Sodom and Gomorrah.
They both promote full legitimization of the disgusting Toeiva lifestyle – even for children, even encouraging official recognition of “same-gender Marriage” by the Government, a move that sealed the fate of Sodom and her sister cities in the “Five Towns,” according to the Midrash.
They both promote the wholesale murder of babies in the womb, a Holocaust of over 60,000,000 souls; the Zohar tells us that this brings a host of plagues and diseases on our society.
Although our Torah leaders have banned support for such candidates, they have, Nevertheless, encouraged us to participate in elections – So, how can we vote in this Tuesday’s Mayoral election without being disloyal to G-D and His Torah?
We can vote! We have a decent candidate in this Mayoral election who stands firm against the wholesale murder of children in the womb; he is staunchly opposed to any and all forms of official recognition and encouragement of Sodomite Toeiva in America - He is Stephen Christopher, and he is running for Mayor on the Conservative Party line.
By voting for Stephen Christopher, you will send a clear message to our City, State, and Federal officials (who analyze election results very carefully) that we Torah Jews Demand A Stop to the promotion of “Toeiva”!
We Torah Jews Demand A Stop to the Abortion Holocaust!
Make Your Voice Heard. Send A Clear Message!
VOTE! Stephen Christopher for Mayor On the Conservative Party Line.
RABBI LEVIN ON THE NJ ELECTION:
CHAS V’SHALOM, DON’T VOTE FOR CORIZINE OR CHRISTIE!!
Parshas “Vayomer lo ashchis bavoor hasarah”

Because of the tumult against Corzine, the ones who brought Hillary Clinton to Lakewood (and soaked over $200,000 of Yiddish gelt l’hevel v’lareik at her fundraiser, money which could have gone for Torah,) called Rav Shteiman Shlita to bolster their pro-Corzine (who is pro alternative marriage) support.
Who presented the “opposing position” to R’ Shteiman who knows nothing about the “hashchasah” politics here, or the Chilul Hashem to religious pro-family gentiles who would never vote for either candidate?
This is similar to a landlord presenting Rav Forscheimer with “both sides” of a din Torah. Would the absentee, unrepresented tenant be obligated to abide by any ruling? Of course not.
We all sympathize and appreciate the administrators’ efforts to fund our Mosdos-but it’s obvious there is a “negius” which blinds them from seeing or understanding the bigger picture, regarding the Chilul Hashem visa vi the religious/moral gentiles and the spiritual effect our countenancing Corizine’s “marriage”-or “Christie’s” civil unions will have on our children and grandchildren.
When my 3 mentors, Rav Avigdor Miller zt”l, The Kashau Rav zt”l, and the Debriciner Rav zt”l, spoke at a 5745 kinus on behalf of my then Congressional campaign, Rav Miller referenced the Mondrowitz scandal and prognosticated that as long as Yidden continue to vote for “Chukai Toaveh” politicians, more of our children will continue to suffer similar types of abuse. May I add that “kids at risk” will continue to misbehave in similar fashions, Hashem Yerachaim! How prescient he was. Look where we are holding a quarter century later!
Rav Simcha Hacohen Kook, Chief Rav of Rechovos, expressed to myself, Harav Lazer Ginsburg, Rosh Kollel of the Mir, Rav Dovid Eidensohn, noted mechaber seforim and talmid chochom from Monsey, and Rav Noson Leiter, of Jews for Torah Decency, Monsey, his total shock and horror. “How is it possible that you can’t obtain for me letters from Gedolei America that forbid voting for the supporters of Toevah?” In Eretz Yisroel, where they don’t have this form of elections (i.e. they vote for Frum parties) and this kind of “shochad” of government programs, he is not “blinded by shochad”. So the prohibition, hypocrisy and spiritual “sakanah” of voting for anyone who supports Toevah is a no-brainer! To Rav Kook, it’s “pashut” absolutely forbidden.
Today, Rav Kook shlita obtained the signatures of Rav Shteiman and Rav Elyashiv on a Kol Koreh, which many Gedolei Yisroel DID sign, which obligates US to fight in every manner against the passage of same gender marriage laws. The third rail of kedusha, “not voting” for the evil politicians, is not mentioned in this text although it’s obvious that this is the “hishtadlus” we can and are obligated to make.
Rav Shteiman shlita explained that since he had already told the Lakewood “shoel” that at least b’de’eved they didn’t have to antagonize Corizine by pulling back their endorsement, at this time, he didn’t feel comfortable signing on to the stronger “Kol Koreh” that prohibits voting for the pro-shmutz candidates.
Please be “Mekadaish Hashem”. Do it to have kosher children and eineklach – A vote for Christie is also a Chilul Hashem and a vote for compromise with Toevah. Don’t do it!
The way things work is: We don’t show proper concern for Kashrus, we have a meat debacle in Monsey several years ago. We turn the other cheek and vote for hashchasa, we get kids misbehaving and “intimate” abuse of the same genre.
Look at our “Orthodox” politicians-Mechallelai Hashem. Senator Joe Lieberman-pro-partial birth abortions and pro-chukai Toeivah. NY State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver actively passes and advocates for Toeivah marriage. “Orthodox” (ha! ha!) Assemblyman Gary Shear votes absent and not “NO” on NJ civil unions, himself is very “choshud” on inyonim and had a pro-toeivah bill signed by Governor Corizine in an Orthodox shul in Passaic. He deprecates our Torah and the Rabonim who unfortunately still support him!
The Satmar Rav zt”l said that if one votes for politicians in Israel, he is responsible for all the shmutz the politician sponsors or votes for. The Kashau Rav zt”l, Rav Refal Blum, states the same thing applies in the U.S.
Is it any wonder all our Ortho Politicians do bad things and are Mechalel Hashem and too many of our children are ensteeped in shmutz? It’s in part the “effect” of our voting for pro-shmutz politicians!
In 1982, Rav Elya, zt”l, spoke at a kinus in Kamenetz l’kovod Rav Shach and said if Torah is “built” on one questionable “nail”, the whole Torah C”V can be questionable. He said it b’shaim the Gra, the Chasam Sofer or both. Isn’t it time we apply these hashkofos l’maaseh?
Lakewood, you can do a teshuva for all our failures in the area of voting and “chanfaning” politicians for the last 30 years.
With your help, we will turn over a new leaf. L’maan Hashem, don’t vote for Corizine or Christie.
