Haredi Rabbis Fed up with Extremists, Threaten to Cut Payments

JewishPress Logo

Rabbis from the “Eidat Haredim” stream of ultra-orthodox Judaism have put their foot down and their hands in their pockets over extremist Haredim violence and have threatened to cut off payments to Torah students who participate in vandalism.

Extremists have been protesting construction in the city, located several miles west of Jerusalem, because of claims that the building is taking place over Jewish graves. Eidat Haredim rabbis have spoken out against the violence, and one rabbi told his Torah students that they will lose their monthly Kollel learning stipends if they join the disturbances.

    I hope it works.

  2. Know what this means?

    It means that the "Eidat Hareidim" also wants to destroy the "world of Torah".

  3. what do you mean "also"? the tzionim? perhaps the yeshiva that protects it's own molesters?

  4. Keiko Hayashi says:

    Interesting take….exactly one rabbi told his Torah students that they would lose their monthly Killel stipends if they engage in the violence, and somehow made a very big and wrong gross misgeneralizaton from that.

  5. finally some common sense from the chareidi leaders!
