Rabbi Eli B. Shulman of the Young Israel of Midwood
emailed this message today (2023 October 20) at 9:55 AM:
“As our soldiers stand poised to wage battle against the modern Amalek, I want to remind everyone that we are saying two chapters of tehillim and אחינו after every tefillah, including Shabbos.
When there are two tefillos back to back, such as mincha/maariv and shacharis/mussaf, tehillim should be said after the second tefillah, with the exception of Friday night, when we will say tehillim after mincha rather than after maariv.
I am including a list of appropriate chapters.
These are just suggestions.
13, 20, 27, 79, 83, 121, 130, 142.
May our army be crowned with victory and may our boys
and all the hostages return safe home soon.
Wishing you a good Shabbos, EBS”
MY PERSONAL COMMENTS:
Please notice that Rabbi Shulman refers to Hamas as “the modern Amalek” — those are his words, not mine.
Please notice that Rabbi Shulman refers to the Israeli Army (IDF/Tzahal) as “our army”, even thought he lives in Brooklyn — those are his words, not mine.

Why doesn’t he say “our hostages”October 21, 2023 8:08 pm at 8:08 pm #2233257Sam KleinParticipant
Amalek is eisav’s grandson
All the Muslim countries are all Bnei Yishmael not at all related to amalek unless you go all the way back to our forfathers where amaleks grandfather eisav’s uncle was Yishmael which is where all the Muslims come from but not from Amalek.
May we all wake up immediately and accept Hashems wake up call for serious Teshuva and Achdus together so Hashem can stop this terrible Israel-Hamas war and send Mashiach already bkarovOctober 21, 2023 8:08 pm at 8:08 pm #2233268funnyboneParticipant
Just wondering, why would you post YIM info on a yeshiva site? I’m thrilled to say the Mi shebeirach that they say in Vizhnitz, but a chochom is one who is maker es mekomo.October 22, 2023 11:47 am at 11:47 am #2233521commonsaychelParticipant
Are Hersh Kestin or Chanaya Weissman members of YIM?”October 22, 2023 9:35 pm at 9:35 pm #2233580
Hersh Kestin and Chanana Weissman are not YIM members,
but laitzanus [ליצנות] is a violation of Torah Law,
and the person who calls himself “common saychel”
is constantly making comments that are laitzanus.
The moderators of this web site do not permit
Lashon HaRa or Nivul Peh, and that is good and correct.
So why do they permit the laitzanus of “common saychel”,
which is just as forbidden as Lashon HaRa or Nivul Peh?
Maybe the moderators do not understand that
laitzanus [ליצנות] is a violation of Torah Law?October 22, 2023 9:46 pm at 9:46 pm #2233674Always_Ask_QuestionsParticipant
funnybone, chochom lomed mikol adam?
and Kiddushin ~70 daf yomi talks about a cherem for someone who goes to another town and does not show verbal respect to the Rav there
PS in my town, everyone came together in one shul to daven for refuah, shevuyim, chayalim, regardless of what they usually do intheir shul.October 22, 2023 9:48 pm at 9:48 pm #2233678smithbergenParticipant
If SQUARE ROOT was a bit more rounded he would understand that Rav Shulman did not mean to imply that modern Amalek shared the same DNA as the biblical Amalek. Although it might be true. Rather he meant that Hamas is the primary Jew hater and Jew killer of our generation. Eighty years ago Hitler had that distinction. I don’t see what bothers SQUARE ROOT with Rav Shulman’s statement.October 23, 2023 12:11 am at 12:11 am #2233695
Smith Bergen: You have misinterpreted me and misjudged me.
I *** DO *** understand that Rav Shulman did not mean to imply that modern Amalek shared the same DNA as the biblical Amalek.
I *** DO *** understand that Rav Shulman meant that Hamas is the primary Jew hater and Jew killer of our generation.
NOTHING about Rav Shulman’s statement bothers me; I agree with him 100%.
PLEASE STOP misinterpreting my words and motivatons!!October 24, 2023 1:44 pm at 1:44 pm #2234057funnyboneParticipant
AAQ: incorrect. We look to our gedolim for guidance.November 1, 2023 10:39 pm at 10:39 pm #2236612Taliba InmeParticipant
All the Goyim intermarry and also Esavs son married Yishmaels Granddaughter. So at this point it’s possible that they carry both genes. And Islam is a religion that is practiced internationally it isn’t only practiced by Yishmaelim. So they can all be considered Eisavs.November 7, 2023 4:57 pm at 4:57 pm #2237579ywnjudyParticipant
To my recall, Amalek hails from both Esav and Yishmael.
Now Iran is genetically Aryan (which is why they’re called “Iran”).
Aryans are from Esav and/or Amalek.
But additionally, Iran has the “soul” of Yishmael.
Which definitely makes Iran “Amalek”.
AND it’s Iran which has been backing and training Hamas.
Maybe that’s why R’Shulman stated that Hamas is today’s Amalek.
Because they’re hand-in-glove with Amalekite Iranians.
IMO ditto regarding Hezbollah.
