Kabbalah Rabbi: Storm Is God’s Reply to Arresting Yeshiva Students

The “snow siege” of Jerusalem is a God’s direct response to the recent jailing of yeshiva students who refused to accept draft orders to report for duty in the IDF, claimed Kabbalistic Rabbi Yaakov Addas Sunday.

“There is a general principle that when there is an evil decree, such as a tsunami, everyone must do some soul searching” he told the Kikar HaShabbat Haredi website.

“No one dies because of others, but this is done by God to awaken the world” he explained. “The same thing applies here. Everyone goes through his own soul searching, am I not going to get into that, but besides that, there is a public decree for which the public must do some soul searching.”

He said “it all fits in” when connecting the dots between the storm and arresting yeshiva students for not reporting for military duty.

“Putting yeshiva students in jail was a public sin based on an evil decree, and this whole business [the storm]” is a response,” the rabbi concluded.

    And when there is a heatwave, it is God’s direct response to the recent jailing of yeshiva students.

    It is nice to know that this Rabbi has a direct line to God's plans.

  2. Too bad. I’ve heard such ignorance from other religions, but a rabbi? Get a clue, rabbi.

  3. Wow is this rabbi a moron or what!!!

  4. Myriam Obadia says:

    No matter how inconvenient, that storm was a blessing which provided clean water reserves for Israel. If Hashem sent us this blessing because we put a few lazy men in jail, then He approves that law.

  5. They are very far from being lazy! they study, they do lots of public service works etc.They are refusing to: a] join an army that throws Loyal Jewish citizens from their homes for the sake of terrorist demands; b] refuse to join an army that uses its wiles to distance Jews from kashrut, prayer etc push them out of religious practice; c] be accomplices to a repeat of the tragic disastrous mistake that Bar-Koziba made which lost his once invincible army to lose it all & bring the cruel deaths of millions of Jews & the great diaspora.
    By the way every normal civilised country gives the option of deferral from draft for reasons of religious belief or conscience. Also no one makes any noise about the tens of thousands of non-religious men who avoid the draft & they don;t get thrown in jail either!!!!

  6. Water is truly needed & the rains came late. BUT along with it being said that rain/snow is a blessing we also know that when it comes in a form that causes death & or much damage it is in the aspect of what is said in Torah of the waters of the Deluge of Noahh (Genesis 7:18) "Vayigberu hamayim". Water changed from "hhesed"(charity/grace) to "gvuroth" (judgment). The rains that preceded this snow got to be too much already, most ran off to the sewers with the topsoil, homes, businesses, streets trees etc were damaged, people were injured & died, the heavy snow added to that damage & casualties as well. It was too much of a good thing too much at once, was no longer a good blessing.
