Letter From HaRav Elya Ber Wachtfogel To Go To Manhattan Protest



Rav Elya Ber Wachtfogel, the Rosh Yeshiva of South fallsburg says that Reb Chaim Kanievsky stated that people should go. This was told to him by his son, Rav Shlomo Kanievsky. It is interesting to note that Rav Shlomo Kanievsky signed a letter (undersigned by Maran Rav Chaim) that people should not go.


  1. How will a public protest achieve anything? Try explaining to the secular media that we are protesting for our “right” to be exempt from Army service and to live off the public dole. I don’t think the non-Jewish and secular world will buy the Torah sustains us all argument. We will end up making fools of ourselves.
