Eida Chareidis Ravaad HaGaon HaRav Moshe Sternbuch Shlita is threatening to step down amid growing controversy surrounding the construction in Beit Shemesh, the Golovnititz project.
Eida Chareidis Gavaad HaGaon HaRav Yitzchok Tuvia Weiss Shlita on Wednesday afternoon 12 Adar I 5774 is planning to protest at the building site with members of the beis din. According to a Kikar Shabbos report, Rav Sternbuch has threatened to resign if they protest against the construction. Simultaneously, a protest is planned at Kikar Shabbos in Yerushalayim.
Rabbonim in Rav R’ Sternbuch’s inner circle explain a protest would be in direct contradiction to his psak, ruling the construction is not compromising kevarim. The ravaad is unwilling to accept a public display of total disregard of his ruling. This latest development attests to the growing split in the Eida.
