The following story is painful, and perhaps a lesson to readers how one should refrain from acting.
Many chassidim are wondering what will occur, as the Rebbe of Razla (ראזלא) Shlita is being prohibited from building his sukka on Knesset Yechezkel Street in Betar Illit by residents of the area.
The sukka is intended to serve the mispallalim of Beis Medrash Ateret Yehuda Razla, but some of the tenants of the street have placed a notice prohibiting the sukka, adding if it is constructed, they will immediately dismantle it.
According to the BeChadrei Chareidim News report, the notice hung in the beis medrash by the gabboim request forgiveness from the mispallalim because this year, they will not be able to bentch arba minim in the sukka, and they will not be able to enjoy a hot drink before davening, as they are unable to build a sukka this year.
The notice adds that those who are preventing the construction of the sukka should take ‘ben adom l’chaveiro’ into consideration.
The report adds that persons who broke away from the beis medrash to start their own minyan are the very same persons who are now prohibiting the construction of the shul sukka in the parking lot, where there is another sign prohibiting the sukka, promising if it is built, they will dismantle it R”L.
