The split between the factions in the Eida Chareidis continues. Leaders of the Eida condemned the sikrikim after they compromised the kovod of the Dushinsky Rebbe Shlita, with the Gavaad HaGaon HaRav Yitzchok Tuvia Weiss Shlita coming out strongly to condemn Asra Kadisha and its recent activities. The Gavaad delivered words of chizuk and hisorarus in his Givat Moshe Street beis medrash, addressing recent tragedies that have befallen the tzibur and the need for teshuvah.
He then lashed out against Asra Kadisha, which he accuses of crossing the line by turning to state secular courts to resolve their issues, adding these individuals are “painted with the mantle of fanaticism” and “of late they have permitted themselves to turn to the secular courts and Supreme Court numerous times negating to the Torah HaKadosha”.
The gavaad instructs the tzibur to distance itself from them.
