    UBinquitin

    The Gri”z- and the Chofetz chayim and R’ elchana wasserman etc…
    all were ardent beleivers in settling in e”y, anf all davened regularly to malchus beis Dovdi to be established – i.e. a Jewish state with different leaders.

    Ben Hechts book is based on records of the jerusalme magistrate’s court – although it is possible that the witnesses before him lied.

    The differences only led to violence against the Altanela, menachem Begin was very insistent that his followers do not descend into violence/lies etc

    stating the truth shouldn’t be anti-Semitic.

    one does not need to bring up old sugyas if one does not want, however to refer to proven claims as putrageous is , if anything, outrageous ……

    ubiquitin
    Ben hecht was an ardent zionist, like many people are today, but he saw the zionist leaders for what they were.

    [BTW Moron Ri”z haLeivi zatzaka”l told the Admor R’ Yoilish that although “ken zein du bist gerecht” nonetheless “Cholilo zogen yishuv eretz Yisroel is botel,” and indeed his son the Gramad Haleivi and his grandson HaGaon R’ Chayim feinstein are makpid not to leave e”y. I assume that HaGaon r’ Michel Ber Weismandel – very admired by ben Hecht; was maskim to the Gri”z. does that make them zionists?]

    Zush. very well said.

    Yet it does represent only the state of the bloggers, it is the general YWN itself which ahs sunk to a new low.

    Not only are the moderators approving posts referring to Breslover chassidim as apostates, and having no rught ot an opinion, they are publishing virulently anti israel articles, courtesy of the AP, and fake news of Israeli goings on [an article describes HaRav R’ yosef gutfarb as “exchaning slaps” with a police officer” is one of many that comes to mind.
    The hafganos against the light rail are happily reported with no context or explanation of the problems with the light rail, with many videos and details, while far greater hafganois of the settlers in the sme go ignored – as the simply do ot fir with the YWN hashkafois.

    Gedoilim such as R’ abish Eizen are niftar, but as non voters their deaths are ignored…..

    Brisker Seforim are published, but as unpublished by artscroll and being anti Zionist they do not appear

    we feel that what we have acheived would be mematek the dinim, and thereby lower the health risk for everyone.

    Rabbeinu said that had the goyim understood what the seventy oxen achieve in the beis hamikdash they would never have destroyed it, and one of Rabbeinu’s main messages was that we continuously under estimate the unbelievable importance of our own avoida.

    Additionally lease do not forget Maran R’ Matisyahu Salomon’s famous words about the zionist government “וואס האבען זיי אויפגעטאהן אז זיי געראטעווערט די ילדי טהרן אונד זיי אללע אופגעשמ-ד. מיר וייסען אז גדול המחטיאו יותר מן ההורגו”

    When my older brothers were in school [1970s and 80s children were spanked on their bottoms – often for very little reason.
    When i was a kid they decided to bring a new guy who thought he understood chinuch so he cut down a bit on the spanking and instead invented a whole bunch of different torture including making children walk round the block without shoes, spenidng time stuck under tables, or sitting without a chair – or any combination.

    At any rate i 100% sure that i came way better than my brothers – so you can draw your own conclusions….

    To me there would seem to be a difference based on someone’s primary occupation and achievement.

    Obviously a Nazi leader etc … is primarily involved with genocide.

    Washington etc primarily rebelled against the UK. owning slaves – independent of what was accepted at that time – was secondary.

    BTw as a patriotic Englishman I would legally try and remove every statue of Washington anyway. He was a real moired be’Malchus and most definitely chayev missa.

    Founder:

    R’ Yaakov Koppel chossid

    for a few generations it was based in kossov one of the main rebbes was called AHAVAS SHOLOM

    the first rebbe in “vitnitz” – a town in romanaia was the TZEMACH TZADDIK called R’ Menachem mendel and based in vitznita, about 150 years ago. He was a son in law of the Ruzhiner rebbe. viznitz therefore has a few minhagim form ruzhin like saying ledovid hashem immediately after shmoine esrei.

    He had two sons. the AHAVAS YISROEL who was called Yisroel, and married into the dzikov sanz dynasty. he had a tremendous influence in his warmth and approach to Shabbos. eretz Yisroel, and ahavas Yisroel which affect vitznitz till today. his younger brother was called boruch, he left vitnitz and was the fore runner of shotz vitnitz, and shtroznitz. he is known as the IMREI BORUCH

    The next generation was first the DAMESEK ELIEZER, when he died childless his brother took over, he was called R’ Chayim meir, IMREI CHAYIM became rebbe in 1949 until 1973

    His older son R’ yehoishua moshe YESHUOIS MOISHE was rebbe in b’nei brak, and he two sons who are rebbes R’ Yisroel and r’ mendel. His younger son was by nature stricter, was attracted a little to satmar, he was rebbe in monsey, demanded a lot from his chassidim discouraged voting in israeli elections etc…
    He has seven or eight sons as listed above.

    The Ahavas Yisroel had a son called Boruch, MEKOR BORUCH he was known as seret vitnitz and made his way to Chaifa, where his grandson is now rebbe.

    There is also a shtroznitzer rebbe in London – R’ gershon Hager, and numerous other grandchildren.

    כולם אהובים כולם ברורים R’ Yisroel hager is probably the closest in derech to the original vitznitzer philoshophy.

    Toildois avrohom yitzchok is also a bug talmid of the vitznitze derech, and many many things have also been incorporated in belz – the belzer rebbe is married to a daughter of the yeshu’ois Moishe.

    The Imrei Chayim had a grandson who was meshamesh him, he is called R’ Velvel Ernster, or the me’oir Chayim rebbe, in yerushalayim,.

    Viznitz is very devoted around
    giving shevach to Hashem, pesukei dezimra, nishmas, hakol yoiducha etc…
    Shabbos, getting together, it is always referred to as the “heiliger Shabbos”
    Ahavas Yisroel, tend to be more inclusive, less eager to criticize, steer away from kana’us

    Unlike Chabad or breslov, there is very little focus on learning “chassidus”

    Unlike Ger and Belz, there is perhaps slightly less issue made out of learnig, and slightly less encouragement for full time learning. nonetheless kevi’us ittim is very important – especially in monsey

    The rebbe is viewed as a extremely holy, he is generally refeered to as the heilige rebbe. all the wider family are viewed as being special as rebbishe eineklach, wear special “kolpiks” from barmitzva ataro and bekeshe even during the week, ec… most are expected tp become rebbes’ but not quite like nadvorna.

    They daven a little late, but not like amcshinov, just a little

    There were two beautiful articles in mishpacha, one about R’ Yisroel hager shlit”a and one about the toldos Avrohom yitzchok rebbe – whio is a talmid, they should be of use. Dr. alfasi’s books would probably also be useful.

    “The writer” means that at the end of the day there have been less deaths in yerushalyim during the outbreak than there were on average before. During the week of parshas Tzav there were three, during a different week eight. This was heard from a member of the chevra kaddisha and does include all burials, ecept those brought from chu”l

    The system in etetz Yisroel is very different in many ways.

    First of all many children become otd much much younger – often 12 or 13. [they genenrally carry more responsibility at a younger age, and are also far more chutzpadik.]

    Also in e”y everything is more open, more well known, politics are discussed more etc…

    many BT’s or their children who start out believing that every frum person is perfect end up disenchanted in e”y.

    When the suggestion was brought up in the Knesset to allow Israelis abroad to vote, Moron Harav Shach opposed it strongly – despite the fact that hundreds of thousands of chareidim abroad would have been able to take advantage of the law of return and then vote, and that few of our non religious brethren would vote. Moron Harav Shach said decisively there is enough machloikes in eretz Yisroel, we do not need export it to chutz la’aretz.

    A talmid of R’ Shmu’el kamenetzky was getting married in eretz Yisroel. he contacted his rebbe, and offered him a ticket. R’ shmuel agreed to come with one condition, that he is NOT mesader kiddushin, it being that the chosson was then learning by Maran R’ Dovid Solovaitchik.

    When R’ dovid arrived at the chuppa, he saw R’ Shmu’el. Recognising who R’ shmuel was, he insisted that R’ shmu’el be mesader. R’ shmu’el however insisted that he had only come on condition that R’ dovid be mesader.

    Concerning the original pirtzah of the ten amos, there is a clear letter from maran R’ elyshiv zatzla to r’ Betzalel Rakow of gateshead, where he described Grach no’eh shiurim as having been the standard minhag both lekula and lechumra. It’s printed in koivets teshuvois t. 30, and some nored people hang it up in e”y every now and again.

    J. again iwm sorry fot the misuderstanding, although i realise why you misuderstood me. let me explain.

    .

    The shulchan Oruch lists two options for what defines a reshus harabim de’oyraisa, who in our context a place where an eiruv does not help.

    1) any road 16 amos wide

    2)yesh oimrim, a road on which 600,000 travel every day.

    .

    Although the pashtus in mechaber may sound like the first shita, as he refers to the secod as a yesh oimrim, nonetheless, the mogan Avraham, Taz, and Mishna Berura, all clearly state that one who chooses to rely on te makilim ??? ????? ???? the Taz further adds that this was indeed the minhag.

    .

    It being that there is no road in london which reaches that amount it may seem obvious the room for kula.

    .

    At this point, both the Chazoin Ish and r’ moishe throw a spanner in the works. The yesh oimrim in the mechaber is based on Rashi and the Mordechai, yet they do not refr 600,000 every day, rather to a town of 600k. As such they suggest that roads in such towns may have problems.

    R’ moishe however carefully defines this, howver. (orach chayim 4, t.117&118) He points out thta in the midbar there was more than 600k, there fore one needs to take into the account the wider fmailies of the diglei midbar. He also limits it to roads that are built ot serve most of the town. This was the bsic reasoning for ossering the Brooklym eruv.

    .

    R’ Roberts, R’ Padwa senior zatzal, R’ ehalpern [S’dei Elchonon] and the michas Yitzchok, all felt that this is a problem in london too.

    .

    R’ Roberts would not expect his kehilla not to shave, etc…, he however feels that the eruv is a de’oraysa. He was however pointing out to those hwo may have heard to the contrary, that nonetheless they should take his opinion into account due to the severity of the matter.
