Local Rabbonim Unite To Protect The Monsey Community

13

CaptureIn advance of Election Day, a strongly worded Kol Koreh with signatures from over 70 prominent Rabbonim is urging local residents to go out and vote. This Kol Koreh reflects the strong support and hakaras hatov Rabbonim feel toward the elected officials who have capably served the frum community for so many years.

The Kol Koreh detail a number of critical issues that face our community and highlights how essential it is that everyone votes on Election Day — on Tuesday, November 3.

Rabbonim and Askanim from throughout the greater Monsey area united to make everyone in the community aware of the current political climate and to stress the importance of defending our frum neighborhoods, yeshivos, mosdos, and batei midrashim.

This coming Tuesday features critical elections for Ramapo Town Supervisor, as well as for two seats of the Ramapo Town Board.

On one side we have Supervisor Christopher St. Lawrence, Councilman Samuel Baruch Tress and Councilwoman Brenda Logan-Charles, all of whom have dedicated records of fighting for our community each and every day. They are being challenged by people who want to limit the growth of our community and subvert us.

Our esteemed community leaders who regularly deal with the town officials praise Supervisor St. Lawrence for his genuinely good heart and caring for town residents. He is always receptive when there are issues facing the frum community which need to be addressed, they say.

On the other hand, the Rabbonim recognize that the other side’s objective is to inhibit our growth and to cause problems for our community’s continued success.

The Rabbonim firmly believe that the great progress that has been made over the last number of years, which came as a result from the hard work and dedication of the community and its elected officials, can be wiped out in a single moment if the other side wins. In the event that happens, Monsey will become a place in which frum people will have difficulty living and going about their daily lives.

These well-respected Rabbonim are asking the entire frum community to daven for the future of our town and our community, and to vote in Tuesday’s election. In order to protect our Torah way of life, the Rabbonim are working diligently to make the frum community aware of the critical importance of next Tuesday’s vote.

The fact that so many distinguished Rabbonim are joining this effort shows just how important this election is. This act of great unity on the part of our community leaders is a clear sign that our community must also unite and follow their lead.

The community’s Rabbonim strongly urges every eligible voter to go out and vote on Tuesday. Supervisor Christopher St. Lawrence, Councilman Samuel Baruch Tress, and Councilwoman Brenda Logan-Charles have all been longtime friends and supporters of our community and have worked to advance the needs of our community in numerous ways. They need and deserve the support of every resident so that they can continue their great work on our behalf.

  1. how appropriate to daven for monsey and its mosdos when jews in Israel are being attacked, its very important for these alleged rabbonim , to make sure they have politicians who are on their doll, so all the yeshivas nursing home operators and the rest can continue to act in their corrupt fashion. not get appropriate building permits and continue to make a chillul hashem as long as the institutions get their money that’s the main thing

  3. Liars. All the askanim who convince the rabbonim are real estate people and developers. They have a ve$ted interest in St. Crooked staying in power, and DESTROYING monsey. The chasidim and the developers are happy, while everyone else has everything they have worked hard for ripped away from them. This isn’t the Nazis, and by next election, the litvishe people, ALL OF THEM, will have had enough and will start voting for these guys. It’s two more years, it will have to wait until then. But when every neighborhood starts to realize the lies they have been fed we will stop the rampant law breaking and over building and every other house taken off the tax rolls. Enough is enough

  4. May the best candidates win. The jews of monsey are smart enough to pick good and honest local residents, and do not need to be prodded by the machers.

  5. If my community was over run by congestion, messy streets, lack of quality of life, Id also do everything in my power to stop it. When people object to their neighborhoods being overrun by a group of people that have zero respect for the locals, zero adherence to the law, then yes the locals will get upset. Nothing to do with Anti Semitism, it has everything to do with their communities being ruined

  6. Just imagine all these “Chassidim” are your brother or someone else you love and try to make any excuse to see the good in how they live, even if you don’t necessarily approve of some of their behavior. At the end of the day if you look back not to far in history you will see that all Jews, “Chassidim”, “Litvaks”, “MO”,” Frum”, “Yeshivish”, “Non Religious”, ETC…. sat nicely or actually not so nicely together in cattle cars. If you talk to someone, like I have, who’s been on one of those cattle cars, they will tell you that the Haters were much more embarrassed than the Lovers and didn’t say a word because they finally realized that after all to the Nations we are all Dirty Jews. Nothing is new under the sun it’s just a different year in a different town. I live in Monsey and I don’t agree with everything that is going on, however I do realize that if we have people in government that “Like” us even for monetary and other reasons on one side, and people who have openly said that they don’t like us on the other side, I’d rarer stick with my “Brothers”.

  7. #5: To quote: “This isn’t the Nazis, and by next election, the litvishe people, ALL OF THEM, will have had enough and will start voting for these guys”

    1) A number of the rabbonim on the kol koreh are “litvish”

    2) 90% of people who call themselves “litvish” are really Hungarians and their ancestors never stepped foot in Lita.

    3) Are you the spokesman for ALL OF THEM “litvish” people?

    4) I think you mean MO people because most of the “litvish” people I know in Monsey are just as into this thing as the Chassidim.
