Historic letter by leading Rabbonim in America in support of President Trump is released ahead of the elections.

The letter which includes the signatures of the Admorim of Pupa, Bobov, Munkach, Vizhnitz, Skver, Rachmistrivka, both Satmar Rebbes, the Dayan of the Crown Heights Bais Din as well as the Rosh Hayeshiva of Lakewood, Philadelphia, and South Fallsburg is an unprecedented joint letter of appreciation and blessing, spearheaded by Rabbi Moshe Margareten of the Tzedek Association.

The letter was first drafted in the summer and signatories were added until recently and signed by an unprecedented union of Rabbonim before being publicly released tonight. None of these Rabbonbim have ever been involved in politics before.

  1. What a joke. This is all about opening up everything so that the economy can do well again. He wants adult bars to be filled with perverts as much as he wants yeshivas to be full of students. He wants public schools to be full as well. He wouldn’t know religious freedom if it slapped him in the face. He’d shut it all down if it would serve him. You’d think these Rabbonim would know better and not feel the need to butter him up.

  2. This letter was apparently written months ago. The topic addresses the president’s actions back in April. The YWN headline is misleading as the rabbonim did not release this letter for the election. The letter was released/leaked by those looking to gain support for the president. No where in the letter is their any endorsement of a candidate and Trump’s action (and lack of action) has not had any effect on the opening of any shuls or schools in red zones.

    In fact many in our community may have taken their cues from the president in ignoring social distancing and mask wearing which likely caused the current wave of sickness and suffering and the shut down crisis that we are currently in.

    Hashem should help the people of this great country choose the right candidate to heal this country and bring safety to our communities.

  3. “None of these Rabbonbim have ever been involved in politics before.”
    I’m old enough to remember when R’ Aaron Teitelbaum got heavily involved in politics, not too long ago, when he wrote letters to Congress urging lawmakers to back the Iran deal…the Munkatcher is knee deep into politics always praising Nadler … give us all a break …

  4. I heard or read somewhere – I don’t know where, and I don’t know if it’s true – that many European Chasidic rabbis in the late 1930’s advised their flocks to stay in Europe, not flee to the US or elsewhere, because the Nazi threats against the Jews would not actually materialize. Does anyone know whether this is true?

    As for Trump, he has encouraged white nationalists and white supremists. That cannot be good for the Jews.

  5. Fake news alert!

    Facts:

    1) There is no mention in this letter of voting or an election. It is a letter of support for the President, as the traditional prayer for the President and VP to which it refers, which is recited in synagogues, in line with the teaching of the prophet Jeremiah (29:7) to pray for the peace of the city to which you were exiled.

    2) “Historic letter by leading Rabbonim in America.”

    Where do you see standard Rabbonim in it? It is primarily a Hasidic letter. Of the thirteen signatories, nine are Hasidic Rebbes, one a Hasidic dayan, along with three Litvak Rosh Yeshivas. It is an obviously primarily Hasidic thing.

  6. “None of these Rabbonbim have ever been involved in politics before”
    and they should have stayed with their original policy. יפה שתיקה לחכמים

    Due to recent voter analysis, The Democratic governor & mayor of New York realized that the Orthodox Jews were voting Republican. Now they are taking revenge on them and aren’t worried about the fallout in the voting booth as the Jews aren’t really supporting them regardless of the publicly declarations of support by various rebbes and Rabbonim and “Askonim”.
    Should the Democrats win the Whitehouse and Senate, the Jews are cooked.

  7. This will surely go down in history as one of the most shamefully sycophantic letters in support of a racist, sexist, thieving would-be tyrant. Way to go!

  8. Rav Yisroel Hager is Viznitzer Rebbe in Bnei Brak and the Rachmistrivke Rebbe’s name is Rav Chai Yochonon not Rav Yitzchok Twersky, so something is not right here.

  9. crazykanoiy
    AND YOU ARE CRAZY IF YOUR CHOICE IS BIDEN. HOW BLIND CAN PEOPLE GET. AND BY THE WAY NOBODY AS GOTTEN SERIOUSLY SICK ON THIS SIDE OF THE WORLD UNLESS THERE HEALTH WAS COMPROMISED FROM BEFORE. THEN THEY SHOULD OF STAYED HOME. THE HEALTHY PEOPLE CAN LEAVE THEIR HOUSES. And there are very good meds that work too. Not like you Rotzchim are selling

  10. Three of the top Litvish Gedolim in America are signatories.

    huju: It’s false and a canard spread by the Reform and their ilk.

    If Biden c”v wins, it’ll be bad news for the Jews.

  11. “This will surely go down in history as one of the most shamefully sycophantic letters in support of a racist, sexist, thieving would-be tyrant”

    But what do you really think about the subject of the letter? Please don’t leave us hanging. Several of the earlier posts have raised doubt about the timing and authenticity of the letter and whether the signatories had a clue as to what they were signing on to. Assuming its 100 accurate and verifiable, I doubt whether it will influence many votes and certainly will have a negligible effect on state level outcomes.

  12. Uncle Ben. You’re mistaken and confusing names regarding the Rachmastrivka Rebbe.

    The current Rebbe is HaRav Chai Yitzchok Isaac Twersky. The Rebbe is a son of Rav Yochanan Twersky.

    There is not a Rebbe named Chai Yochanan. The name Chai was added to Yitzchok Isaac Twersky because he was very ill.

  13. @huju, @NonImpeditiRationeCogitationis – have YOU disavowed white supremacy in the last 45 minutes?

    Check your news sources. Read the transcript.

  14. It was sent last night. Was written in June but now additional signees are on. May it bring only good tidings for us. Dont see what it accomplishes although I hold many Rabbanim in very high regard. May Hashem enlighten us.

  15. Uncle Ben, you must be kidding! He gets an Aliya in Shul as Moreinu HaRav Chai Yitzchok ben Ran Yochanan. May you ought tell him what his name is! Seemingly he forgot. As for the Viznitzer, the oldest son of the Monsey Viznitz Rebbe zatzal is Rav Yisrooel.

  16. @Uncle Ben, Rav Yisroel Hager is Rebbe of Visnitz Monsey and is a first Cousin the the BB visnitzer, they are both named after the the same grandfather.

  17. Slimshim 1 The first thing you wrote that he wants to open up is adult bars why did you use that as your first point.I wonder where your mind is all day

  18. Uncle Ben

    R’ yisroel hager is ALSO hte name of a son of the late monsey vitznitzer – the grandfather of the previous vitnitzher rebbes was also Yisroel

    Huju

    R’ Dovid soloveitchik said that even in 1939 R’ chayim oizer and the brisker rov were considered “yechidim” for encouraging Yidden to leave europe and not assume thta it would blow over/

  19. The liberal Jews, Biden Voting yidden Commenting on this weB site and others are a shame to all Yidden.

    Like Rabbi Miller Zt’l would say you have corrupt minds

    ********Rav Yisroel Hager is Viznitzer Rebbe in Bnei Brak ***********
    and the Rachmistrivke Rebbe’s name is Rav Chai Yochonon not Rav Yitzchok Twersky

    and His cousin R’ Yisroel ben R’ Mordechai is Viznitzer Rebbe in Monsey !!!

    ***** ,*************

    Rachmistrivke Rebbe’s name is Rav Chai Yitzchok ben Rav Yochonon !!!

  21. Corrected

    Rachmistrivke Rebbe’s name is Rav Chai Yitzchok ben Rav Yochonon !!!

  22. so Fat36, I think noticing this, speaks more about you. It came to me because Donald Trump is one of Americas most famous womanizers’ and best friends of pedophiles such as Jeffrey Epstein and the opposite of “religious liberty”. Duh.

  23. @ujm The documentary evidence and testimonies of the people involved are pretty damning. I’m talking specifically about the Satmar Rebbe. Unless, of course, they were all forged by the ‘Reform’ (to what end?). Sorry if that doesn’t comport with your preconceived notions.

  24. To MoisheInGolus: You always disappoint. You read my comment and called me a Holocaust denier, which is utterly unsupported by my comment and utterly untrue. I asked about something I had heard or read, said I did not know whether it was true or false, and asked whether anybody knew whether it was true or false. Michael23 gave a meaningful answer. You clearly cannot read with a clear mind.

  25. @ huju:

    I would ask if you have no shame in parroting that utterly preposterous, thoroughly debunked libel of the President.

    But given your coy yet highly incendiary and blatantly off-topic first paragraph, as well as any number of other comments I recall seeing posted under your handle, I can only highly question your motives. (Would that you were the only one who posts here that I could say that of.)

  26. huju, anyone who is implying or compares Trump administration to Nazi Germany is a Holocaust denial in my books or you are too stupid to realize what Holocaust was.
