The split in the Eida community surrounding construction in Beit Shemesh has led some to believe they have a right to attack talmidei chachamim R”L.
Ravaad Eida Chareidis HaGaon HaRav Moshe Sternbuch Shlita arrived in Kiryat Sefer Hall on erev Shabbos to attend a bris. As the ravaad was leaving the hall a group of zealots was waiting for him and they shouted “grave digger” at him. Not until some of the guests began assisting did the zealots take off.
The split in the Eida Chareidis community is widening and many avreichim have recently canceled their subscription to “The Eida” in response to criticism against the Toldos Aaron community in the weekly.
