The great leaders of the Haredi world in Israel continue to attack the current government in an unabashed manner. According to Kikar Hashabbat, on Thursday night, speaking before thousands of Chassidim, the Rebbe of Belz Rabbi Yissachar Dov Rokeach said the coalition partners were “Truly wicked, they want to destroy the world of Torah, they’re dogs who want to devour and step on Judaism.”

The Rebbe also encouraged his Chassidim to put away their cellular phones during prayer services, because this bothers everybody in the synagogue. He also encouraged them to organize study groups.

Regarding the money his Chassidim are taking from the evil government, the Rebbe said it was their money, which belonged to them as taxpayers. But now, he complained the government wants to take away “even that which we rightfully deserve.”

  3. Look, some of these “crazy” Chasidim (now don’t get me wrong, I’m a 1st generation American, born of Holocaust survivor parents) – but they consider the State of Israel as “illegal, illicit, immoral”, et alia – they don’t even consider me as Jew – I’ve been “stoned” as a young girl by young Chasidim because I wasn’t wearing the appropriate “garb” – it was 90 degrees during the Summer and I was sporting a sleeveless cotton top and shorts – to sum it up, I was stunned, and thereupon picked up a handful of stones and flung it right back, screaming at them that I was a Jew and that they were “doodyheads” – in essence, they wish to reside in another realm, another world, if indeed that is the case, then pull up roots, and relocate to another clime – perhaps somewhere in the wilds of America – and establish your own shettl, your own city within a city within a city. There are “sects” that do do that, both here and aborad – no one is preventing them from pursuing study of the Torah – but this IS the 21st century – and Israel’s security is always at stake – not everything is accomplished and effectuated by G-d’s omnipotent omnipresent “hand” – it takes an army, it takes a government, it takes laws, and reality’s leaking folks. No one is preventing you from pursuing your proclivities, particularly in your temples and/or your own home, but enough is enough. Get with the program, folks.

    This isn't journalism. This is an op-ed piece.

    Their "World of Torah" is the World of Idiocy.

  7. Yom Kippur just passed and it’s back to usual with calling fellow Jews evil, wicked and “dogs.”

  9. Anonymous says:

    Spoken like a true member of academia, Mr. U of Chicago, which is truly the World of Idiocy. The World of Torah is the world of emmes truth!

  10. Dan Silagi says:

    The "emmes truth," like the universe was created in six days. Right, boychik?

  11. truthseekr says:

    Wow, and all along I thought I was paying taxes, though not receiving funds back for yeshiva. Why does he feel only they deserve the money? No, in fact, they contribute very little to the betterment of Israel. If they had true Torah loving hearts, grateful to those of us who only pay taxes but don’t receive, it might help mitigate the disgust Israelis feel toward them. What hypocritical self-elevating snobs. I’ll take a secular soldier over these Charedim any day. G-d bless the soldiers!

  12. Yechiel Baum says:

    When the Belzer Rebbe came to Israel, he was penniless. How comes he is listed as among the richest Jews in Israel? From whose pocket did he take such riches into his personal bank account?

  13. Sydney Pfeiffer says:

    is it "his" money or does it belong to the ModosBelz. The study of richest Jews does not differentiate. makes a big difference.

  14. Mark L. Shane says:

    fat guys…take away their mirrors.

  15. Jonathan Rocha says:

    Have you noticed that some of the Haredi women in Mea Shearim are wearing the burkha now?

  16. He is correct, although he and those minded like him wouldn't and don't make a true and good alternative.

  17. There is burka women in both Beit Shemesh and Nachlaot. I didnt know they were also in Meir Shearim ! I think they are actually Breslovers from the Breslov community – which explains why they are in Meir Shearim. Why do you think people in the Israeli Gov are dogs Moshe BenMaimon? Thats a bit harsh dont you think?

  18. Stewart Schwartz says:

    Dan, wrong again. Those who know little think that the Torah is uninterpreted. You know very little, and that's why you are in the predicament you're in.
