Boyaner Rebbe Becomes Israeli Citizen In Order To Vote For The 1st Time [VIDEO]

The Boyaner Rebbe, a member of the Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah, became an Israeli citizen and voted for the first time in his life on Tuesday.

The Rebbe is a US citizen and until now, has refrained from becoming an Israeli citizen.

According to a B’Chadrei Chareidim report, after the gathering of the Moetzes in the summer, the Rebbe questioned how he could sit on the Moetzes and instruct his chassidim to vote when he himself doesn’t vote. He subsequently made aliyah, becoming an Israeli citizen so he could vote.

There was much excitement in the chassidus about the Rebbe voting and the chassidim embarked on a campaign to encourage more people to vote in order to increase kavod Shamayim.

    where are Satmar, Toldos Aharon, Tosh, Lev Tahor, Shomer Emunim, Toldos Avrohom Yitzchok, & the Edah HaChareidis?

  2. Squirrel, shame on all the Rebanim that voted and tell their followers to. Its a chilul H mamash! Now if anyone doubted it, u the Israeli flag flying on the booth just pisses u off. What a shande! How can a yid vote and be part of the zionist state that desecrates Hashems name with its mere existence. Awful!

  3. Baby Squirrel:
    You are aware that they at least some of those hold that it is halachically forbidden to vote in Zionist elections, right?

  4. I don’t anyone who can say that it is forbidden to vote al pi halacha.
    The Satmar Rebbe was a great tzaddik, and a great talmid chacham, but he was one person. All the Rabbanim who say not to vote are followers of his. The Chazon Ish was also a great tzaddik, and a great talmid chacham, as was the Tchebiner Rav, the Belzer Rebbe, the Gerrer Rebbe, R’ Ovadiah Yosef and many others – Ashkenazim and Sefardim – who said that it is a chov kadosh to vote.
    Since when is one allowed to pasken like a daas yachid against a rabbim? That’s what the Zaken Mamre was killed for!
    Furthermore, do those who refuse to vote based on the Satmar shitah realise that the Satmar Rebbe was also against the formation of Agudah in Europe, meaning that he was opposed to the Chafetz Chaim, R’ Chaim Ozer Grodzinsky, the Imrei Emes, the Chortkover Rebbe, R’ Meir Shapiro (whose yortzeit fell on the day of the Israeli elections) and others.
    Logically, then, these newfound kanna’im should not use Mishnah Berurah, Shemiras Halashon etc, and any other sefarim written by those gedolim.
    In my not so humble opinion, kanna’us is just a way of feeling good by denigrating others, and it’s miskabed biklon chavero.

  5. Marim,

    Boy, are you bitter! So now you know better than the Gedolei Hador? How will you do teshuva, especially for your vile post yesterday about Harav Edelstein, Shlita, that was quickly removed?

  6. coulbe,
    That’s a ridiculous comment. As far as I know there is no sanhedrin or neviim and the Mesilas Yeshorim says that if Daas Nota you can go against the rabim. Everyone should follow their rabanim. I personally follow the more pro Yishuv Eretz Yisroel gedolim (Poilish and Litvish Gedolim),as that is the chinuch and tradition I received from my parents. But I fully understand someone that grew up otherwise (more Hungarian). Let’s get this straight THERE IS NO NAVI OR MOSHIACH JUST CONFUSION UNTIL ELIYAHU HANAVI ELIYAHU HATISHBI WILL TELL US.
