To the Leaders of Diaspora Jewry – Come on Aliyah!


Rabbi Yisachar Shlomo Teichtal

Rabbi Yisachar Shlomo Teichtal

“I have already cited our great and holy Rabbis who say that the light of Mashiach will shine when we build and cherish the Land. We must do precisely this and completely ignore the claims of today’s “pious ones.” We must cherish our Holy Land and sacrifice ourselves for it. This way, we will cause the light of Mashiach to shine forth, with God’s help, speedily in our days. Amen.

“In summation, anyone who has a brain in his head and truly believes in Hashem and His Land will let no claim in the world stop him from elevating the pride of our Land. The arguments of those who try to prevent people from building the Land are the arguments of Satan and his associates, may the Merciful One protect us from their viewpoints. This is even more true today after all that we have been through. Where are all of the Torah centers of Poland, Lithuania, and Hungary? Do we still have a portion and an inheritance here? Are we not considered strangers by the inhabitants of these lands? They have devoured our money, our bodies, and our spirituality. Thus, any intelligent and God fearing person will realize that there is nothing more to search for here in exile. The time has come for all of us to return to the possession of our Forefathers. This is true and clear in accordance with the truth of the Torah, and anyone who denies it denies the truth and the Torah.”

It’s one of the most powerful halachic studies ever written. Don’t miss it!

  1. So please tell me how to come when I am old and crippled and poor. Then people who are suppposed to.help do not want you if your not young or wealthy. LAW OF RETURN IS A JOKE. This is not how your supposed to treat Jews.

  2. Liad Bar-el says:

    If one is presently receiving or is in need of social services, he should not base his decision on Aliyah on the criteria of nefesh b'nefesh founder and rich philanthropist Tony Gelbart who set the Aliyah criteria for young people who have financial backing.

    FYI, after having working in both social services systems in America and in Israel, I can say that Israel has a much better system plus the people are treated with greater respect and are given more support. This is not a joke. It's your life and your choice.

    @Daniel Ben David Have u tried going to the Israeli Embassy/Consulate in your City and speaking to them about making Aliyah? Have you spoken to NBN & have they denied you assistance?
    Misrad HaKlitah helps everyone make Aliyah… be honest w/them.

    @Tzvi Fishman Thank you x 100! I've been waiting for such an article in a mainstream orthodox media! Yashar Ko'ach for stating the facts and fearing to tell the LEADERS what they should have heard and done decades ago! GREAT ARTICLE! UNFORTUNATELY, those you need to reach, most likely don't read the JP! Check out R' Pinchas Winston's incredible "music video" re: Geulah b'Rachamim on YouTube:

  5. Flower Star says:

    @Tzvi Fishman how are u going 2 get your message to those who don't have internet and/or won't read the JP?

  6. Stephen Leavitt says:

    People like you are going to tell them to read JewishPress.com !

  7. When Israel is Pluralistic and accepting of ALL Jews; and allowing their own standards to define themselves as Jews and stop saying everyone must be Chareidi, then the vast multitudes of Jews living in the Diaspora will feel it is a place they could live and more importantly, a place they'd want to live. Let me be clear. The majority of Jews in America are Reform Jews and would not be accepted as Jews in Israel today. Here in America they are accepted as Jews. Why would they want to live in Israel where they would not be considered Jews and would not be given any rights under the law of return? Israel needs to have a separation of synagogue and State and allow each group to function under their own mandate and standard. I know this is tough for Chareidim to take and many will answer me with angry words calling me all sorts of names like Heretic, Epikorus, a Shanda, a clean shaven joke and the rest of the names that go along with that primitive ritual folks do when their Kailim have been shattered by a greater light. But, there is a reason for this– and that reason is " you can't handle the Truth." Let the games begin Chabibi!
