Harav Aviezer Piltz shlita on crimes of the state

from Kol Demama, Shemini

"Rosh Yeshivas Tifrach, Harav Aviezer Piltz shlit'a recently spoke at an Asifa. He noted that thousands of years of persecution have not broken Am Yisroel, and neither will the current persecution at the hands of the Zionist rulers. He said that the obsession of the Zionists and their followers on the primacy of Yishuv Eretz Yisroel was clearly labeled as avodah zarah by Gedolei Yisroel, and that although many could not understand their harsh opposition to Zionism at the time, today it is clearly understandable to all who have eyes to see.

"He cited the Chazon Ish zy”a who stated that unfortunately far from heralding the geulah, the Zionist state will not advance the coming of Moshiach at all and Moshiach will have no association with any of their projects. Similarly, Harav Shach ztz'l, would observe the celebrations of “Yom Yerushalayim” and cry out, 'Treif!'

"Harav Piltz also addressed the growing interference of Misrad Hachinuch in chareidi education. 'They no longer allow us to teach our children about Akeidas Yitzchok, about Beriyas Haolam – baruch Hash-m that there are still people who stand up to them…'"

In case you were wondering, the history of United Torah Judaism results in the elections. Note, I believe the final count for this year is 8 seats. Posting this information is not an endorsement of voting.

Apparently, A. Lieberman doesn't like the increase in Charedi voting at all. He said, “Unfortunately, the religious and ultra-Orthodox factions grew to 21 or 22 Knesset seats. I see this as a threat to the ideals of (Zionist revisionist leader Ze’ev) Jabotinsky. This is something I am concerned about….” (Former Israeli Minister of Defense Avigdor Lieberman) 

If that’s how the Minister of Defense feels about Charedim, the army cannot be a suitable place for them.

Gathering of the Faithful in Queens, NY

April 11, 2019 - Tens of thousands of faithful Jews gathered at the Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens NY to support the schools and yeshivas in Eretz Yisroel who boycott the Zionist government by rejecting any education funds. The government imposes unacceptable conditions on the curriculum in many cases. In the words of HaGaon HaRav Yisroel Yitzchok Kalmanovitz shlit'a:


Every day the evil ones attempt to destroy us by passing new laws against our holy Torah. This is true in terms of schools and mosdos where they are constantly scheming to introduce their ideology and education into our yeshivos, as well as their attempt to break down all barriers between chareidim and the non-religious.

In the words of HaGaon HaRav  Aviezer Piltz shlit'a:
They no longer allow us to teach our children about Akeidas Yitzchok, about Beriyas Haolam – baruch Hash-m that there are still people who stand up to them…
 Almost 8 million dollars has been raised thus far in support of these schools that are doing their best to break away from the secular, anti-religious government.

Rav Avigdor Miller on Likud versus Labor

Rav Avigdor Miller on Likud versus Labor

Q: What’s the Rav’s opinion of the Likud party versus the Labor party in Israel?

A: I must tell you my sincere opinion, I’m not interested in both of them. There’s only one party for us and that’s the party of those that are shlomei emunah Yisrael. That’s our party. The frum Jews, that’s our party.  The truth is someday there’ll be a history, a Tanach written. The Gemara said that: אליהו כותב והקדוש ברוך הוא חותם - [“Eliyhau Hanavi is going to write it and Hakodosh Blurch Hu will sign”] (Kiddushin 70a). There’s going to be a Tanach written. And in that Tanach, you’ll look in the back or in the front for references; Likud? No mention of Likud in the history of Yisroel.  You won't find Teddy Kollek there. You won't find Ben Gurion. No, nothing is mentioned of them. Nothing at all.

The history of Am Yisroel is being written by the frum Jews.  They’re the ones who make history, frum men and frum women. Those who are raising families, they’re writing history.  A mother brings up a family of sons and daughters, shlomei emunas Yisrael, she has made history. And she’ll be in that history book. Yes, women will be in that history book. Tzadikim and tzidkaniyos, not only gedolei Yisrael.  ויד כל אדם בו – “Everybody’s hand will write in that history book something.” Every person will someday be in the history book and it’ll be very well written. Eliyahu HaNavi knows how to write. And all the tzadikim will be there, but nobody else. They’ll be left out.

Now some people think it’s not a real Jewish history unless you mention the names of this reformer, or that Zionist, or this other fellow.  No. These are just accidents, the tragedies that we left out. Hakadosh Baruch Hu will “take care” of them, No, He won't leave them out. He’ll take care of them. Don’t worry about that! But it won’t be in the history book. In that great Tanach, only the shlomei emunah Yisroel will be inscribed.  And it’s very important to be there. And that’s why we say: למה נגרע - “Why should we be absent?” It’s a great tragedy not to be there. למה נגרע. We shouldn’t be absent from that book. So make it your business that you should behave in such a way that you’ll be inscribed.

Moshe Rabbeinu was willing to sacrifice everything for the Am Yisroel.  He said מחני נא מספרך – “Erase me from Your sefer.” Moshe Rabbeinu was moiser nefesh for the Am Yisroel.  “Erase me.” Hashem (said), “Don’t worry, I won't erase you. You won't be erased. For saying that, I’ll write you in the chumash too.”  

And therefore, anybody who is oheiv amo Yisroel has to love the frum Jews.  Amo Yisroel doesn’t mean you love the Jewish nation. No; you love the frum Jews.  That’s a very important lesson. You have to love frum Jews just like Hakadosh Baruch Hu loves them.  As much as you can by loving frum Jews, you’ll be inscribed in that sefer too.
