The Slonimer Rebbe Shlita released a harshly worded letter on Wednesday, June 23, 2010, after the High Court of Justice ruling of Tuesday, sending some of the Emanuel wives to prison.
The Rebbe Shlita states he is convinced the court is well-aware of the truth in the case, and the court’s words are simply lies, untruths to the core. The Rebbe explains this is a battle of faith against non-believers.
The Rebbe tells followers a day after the court decreed that nine Emanuel mothers must serve jail terms that the battle here surrounds a Torah lifestyle versus those who deny the validity of Torah. He stresses this is simply a test of emunah, our belief in HaKadosh Baruch Hu and the Torah way of life.
The Rebbe adds that if he really thought the judges believed there was truly discrimination at Emanuel’s Beis Yaakov, he would act differently, but this is not the case. “But since I have no doubt whatsoever that their words are baseless, this is simply a battle of emunah against k’fira, between the koach of kedusha and the koach of tuma, the sitra achra – a battle that we all knew would come near the end of days”.
“And in a battle of Kiddush Hashem, even if they stand us before a firing squad, there will be no compromise. Hashem is our King and we will continue in his path until our last breath”.
