A known sikrik verbally attacked the Dushinsky Rebbe Shlita after the rebbe’s Shabbos Shuva drasha. The delinquent shouted at the rebbe that it is prohibited to dig kevarim. The rebbe instructed chassidim to exercise restraint and ignore the shouts. The sikrik was referring to the Golovnitz construction project in Beit Shemesh. After the rebbe completed his drasha the sikrik thanked the rebbe for his Torah words and let.
The construction project has been a source of machlokes in the community as Eida Chareidis Gavaad HaGaon HaRav Yitzchok Tuvia Weiss Shlita feels the ongoing construction is prohibited and Ravaad Eida Chareidis HaGaon HaRav Moshe Sternbuch Shlita feels it is permissible. The Dushinsky Rebbe follows the psak of Rav Sternbuch and is viewed as among those permitting ongoing construction.
