The View From The Beis Medrash

View-Beis-Medrash-logo

On Erev Shabbos, Parshas Tetzaveh, Satmar communities worldwide participated in the recitation of Tehillim during the early morning hours. The Satmar Rebbe, shlita, of Kiryas Yoel participated as well.

The Satmar Rebbe of Williamsburg spoke of the Sefer Torah that fell, rachmanah litzlan, last Simchas Torah during kriyas haTorah in one of the side-room minyanim in Williamsburg. The following day the Aron Kodesh fell, miraculously causing no causalities. And on Shabbos Chanukah the paroches fell during davening.

As it is written in Shulchan Aruch, one must fast when these things occur. It is cited in sefarim that the fasting should be done during the Shovavim (the week of the declared fast was the last week of the Shovavim period). Thus the fast was observed on Thursday, February 6.

The Rebbe emphasized that anyone unable to fast should donate money to tzedakah.

Eida Chareidis Gavaad Issues Priorities

Eida Chareidis Gavaad HaGaon HaRav Yitzchok Tuvia Weiss, shlita, spent last Shabbos, Parshas Tetzaveh, with his tzibbur in Beit Shemesh. That Thursday, the Gavaad delivered a schmooze for the yungerleit in the kollel of Toldos Moshe Aryeh. Rav Weiss also met with community rabbanim to discuss the pressing issue of a machlokes in the community surrounding insults aimed at talmidei chachamim.

On Motzaei Shabbos the Gavaad took part in a melaveh malkah in Beit Shemesh, speaking out harshly against those who dare to speak ill of others – and worse, the speaking out against talmidei chachamim. He hinted at attacks against the Dushinsky Rebbe, shlita, regarding recent construction of kevarim in Beit Shemesh.

The Gavaad explained that while the matter of kevarim is very serious, insulting talmidei chachamim and rabbanim over this issue is far more serious.
