As he continues efforts to bring all of the chareidim under one umbrella ahead of Knesset elections on April 9, 2019, Yanki Kanievsky, a grandson of HaGaon HaRav Chaim Kanievsky Shlita, met with R’ Eyal Moshiach, known as the ‘Nagid HaShalom’.

According to the Kikar Shabbos News report, during the meeting the success of the deal signed between Degel Hatorah and Agudas Yisrael was mentioned, along with ongoing efforts to bring Shas onboard.

  1. politics sure make for strange bedfellows. lubavitch joining with anything associated with rabbi schach and diatribes against the 7th Rebbe ztl is downright startling.

  2. chabad is not a unified group when elections come. Each person votes as he or she sees fit and/or according to his personal masphiah…

  3. Their REAL problem is that they have lost the confidence of the zibur.
    (viz what happened in Beit Shmesh).
    That is what should really worry them!
