Final Details for Thursday

20 Menachem Av 5778

I understand that not everyone can make it to one of the protest points for various reasons. But for those who can and will, know that those who can't are with you and praying for you. For those who simply can't, for whatever reason, please say Tehillim between 5 pm and 6 pm or 6 pm to 7 pm, whichever period you can cover, for the sake of those who are out there in the vicinity for the sake of Hashem's Name and His Holy City. 

I'll be so glad when we can move on to speak of better things...

  1. ...Rabbi Yigal Levinstein, head of the Bnei David pre-army preparatory yeshiva in Eli, called for a protest against the upcoming Gay Pride Parade in Jerusalem, which he labeled “an abomination.”

    ..."A small but vocal and verbally violent minority, which refers to itself as ‘the LGBT organization,’ promotes perversion and distortion of sexual orientation. It operates using any means necessary and strives to make an entire country accept the law that recognizes homosexual intercourse as a legitimate family union," Levinstein wrote.



    “In addition, they are also demanding to allow male homosexuals to have and raise children in a morally twisted reality. It is now clear to everyone that their fight is not about individual rights. It’s a struggle over the image of the Jewish state,” he vented.



    In his letter, Rabbi Levinstein added that the Torah’s definition of family should not be meddled with even in the name of equality.



    "They will not confuse us with their values ​​of equality under which they demand legitimacy. Will we allow incest in the name of equality? Will we allow homosexual sex in the name of equality?” he wondered.



    "We will also not be confused by the Western world’s acceptance of these kind of families … On the contrary, we will teach them about the sanctity of marriage and family through the Torah," Levinstein insisted.



    "I empathize with them and understand the pain and difficulty of those with opposite sexual tendencies, but we cannot remain blind to the moral decay of gay sex, and we certainly will not give in to the overwhelming verbal violence against anyone who disagrees with them," he continued.



    “Anyone who has a heart, every Jew and every person who cares about the Jewish State of Israel, cannot remain silent in the face of the moral humiliation of trying to promote such a law that crushes the Jewish morality, which is a light unto the nations when it comes to the sanctity of family life," Levinstein concluded.

    ...Meanwhile, dozens of Orthodox rabbis published a letter expressing their support for the LGBT community. In the letter, 60 rabbis called for an end to the discrimination and offensive discourse against the LGBT community.

    ...The rabbis began their letter by saying how important it is for religious figures to express alternative views on the matter.



    "Our dear and beloved Jewish LGBT brothers and sisters, we, the undersigned, Orthodox rabbis who are committed to the Torah of life and love of kindness, feel a religious and moral obligation to make an alternative religious voice heard … a supportive voice," they wrote.

    ...The letter is an initiative of Rabbi Yitzchak Eisner and Rabbi Avidan Friedman of the Torat Chayim (Torah of life) Rabbis group.

    1. BIRUR...

      ...The religious non-profit Kehila Datit Tomechet (Hebrew for “a supportive religious community”) will participate in the Jerusalem Pride Parade this Thursday for the 6th year, spreading their message of love and tolerance.

      ...Despite opposition from other religious groups, Kehila Datit Tomechet was very clear about their support for the LGBTQ community: “We want to give a voice to another Judaism – inclusive, loving and accepting. A Judaism that puts an end to homophobia and hatred.”

  2. "Meanwhile, dozens of Orthodox rabbis published a letter expressing their support for the LGBT community. In the letter, 60 rabbis called for an end to the discrimination and offensive discourse against the LGBT community."

    Why not support thieves, murderers, rapists, bestiality, pedophilia and incest? The Torah prohibits these wicked acts yet nobody goes and supports rapists for example. You wont see 60 Rabbis calling for an end to the discrimination and offensive discourse against the rapist community.

    These so called Rabbis destroy the Torah and destroy society. They bring moral confusion to the Jewish people and cause them to stumble.

  3. Those 60 or so 'rabbis' are NOt jEWS; they are SURELY of the Erev Rav. They are 'orthodox' just like they are rabbis. These are evil kofrim and have NO Jewish souls, for sure! No true Orthodox Rabbi can live with himself nor look into a mirror believing the hogwash they put forth by stating that opposing views are okay in this matter. Their sin is unforgivable!

  4. Do not be fooled by these Reshaim-Erev-Rabbis.
    They call themselves "Orthodox", but a simple background check of them personally and of their evil organisation "Torat"-Mavet (and not "Torat-Haim" as they dare to call themselves) will reveal that they all belong to the so called "Modern-Orthodox" gang, which in America nowerdays has become another synomym for "REFORM". These "Rabbis" are murdering our Holy Torah mamash ! And therefore we must call them truthfully "MURDER-ORTHODOX" and not Modern-Orthodox !

  5. Orthodox... what a cheap word it became. No Rabbi that supports a Torah Transgression or willfull sinners thereof is orthodox. All this organizations, etc and their artificial names,,, you immediately know, that they are treif. Next step you look at their "Rabbis" and you see faces of leizanus and tumah. There is no way in Torah, than the Mesorah... 200yrs ago every jew was like a charedi jew and this was normative Judaism, all the Gedolim of the past would be deemed Charedi today. Anything else has no Sheichus with true Judaism. People need to get it in their head. All this modern ways are nothing, but in any case no Judaism. What is so difficult to stick to the real Rabbonim, like Reb Chaim and others...? You know why, bc in front of such people you feel your own inner distance from the Torah and the Hanhagas of the Mesorah. This is bc you confront truth and see also clearly, that all what is said about Charedim is prejudice. You become nothing, bc you don't have Torah... and this all these so called "Rabbis" don't want to face. I hope for Mashiach, who will vindicate the Charedim and all true Jews.

    1. Yes. This issue of forcing chareidi youth into the social laboratory and brainwashing facility known as the IDF where they can lose their immortal souls is also very important. But, there was also a chareidi protest called against the parade, too.

      There is a media black-out denying coverage of the counter-protestors, so unless someone reports who was there, we simply don't know how it turned out and how many participated.

      You see, it serves them to show the chareidim protesting the draft, but not the parade. It's that simple and that diabolical. There is no objective, unbiased reporting of events anymore, just propaganda and a slanting of coverage (or non-coverage) in order to tell the story in a way that serves greater interests than the public's right to know.

      The public has a right to know how many really attended this parade and how many were from out-of-town and how many actively opposed it. But, we'll never know. Good thing Heaven is keeping accounts.
