Rabbi Mordechai Tendler writes letter on behalf of Meir Ettinger!!! Moetzet Gedolei Hatorah Meeting today 4 Nissan 5776. Rabbanim called upon to make a Statement to Free Meir Ettinger from Jail under immoral Administrative Detention Orders


Rabbi Mordechai Tendler's letter to Prime Minister Netanyahu. 

We hope and pray that HaRav Feldman will bring up the plight of Meir Ettinger in todays meeting with the members of the Moetzet Gedolei Hatorah. We understand that due to our lobbying efforts, Rabbi Aharon Feldman has also written to PM Netanyahu on behalf of the incarcerated Meir Ettinger.

Both Rabbi Mordechai Tendler and Rabbi Feldman chose to follow in the footsteps with Gadol Hador HaRav Moshe Feinstein ZT"L  who in 1980 sent a telegram on behalf of the Late Rabbi Meir Kahane, Meir Ettinger's grandfather ob"m yh"d,  on humanitarian grounds who also was sitting in Administrative detention.  

We hope and pray that HaRav Feldman will be Matzliach in raising the consciousness of the Moetzet Gedolei Hatorah with the goal to make a public appeal from the Prime Minister to release Meir Ettinger,

fyi Background information

We believe that an appeal by the MGH on behalf of Meir Ettinger by members of the Moetzet Gedolei Hatorah will bring much needed unity among Am Yisroel especially between Dati Leumi community and Chareidim and this will  have a tremendous rippling effect on the side of Zechus for Am Yisroel!  Shuva Elai VaAshuma Aleichem. Hashem tells us we need to take the first step. (As heard from an amazing Chazaq Torah Lecture by Rabbi Paysach Krohn https://plus.google.com/u/0/+ChazaqOrganizationUSA/posts/UeQREfDnkYc?cfem=1 ).  Such a preemptive action on the part of our Gedoilim BaTorah will surely trigger great upheaval in the heavenly court now in the process of judging Am Yisroel. 

Rabbi Shmuel Kamenetsky expressed his reservations that this proposal would be received with open arms among the members of the Moetzet Gedolei Hatorah.  Shmuel Koenig asked him why not? but did not receive a clear answer.  

We can only guess that there are differences of opinion among the members of the Moetzet Gedolei Hatorah. We have tried to contact each of the Rabbanim individually who seemed amenable to lobby on Meir Ettinger's behalf.  It is our impression that HaRav Perlow tends to lean toward a more Satmer, Neturei Karta like position and we did not approach him but it is entirely possible that our judgement call was not accurate.  Satmer and Neturei Karta holds that the time is not ripe for Israel to have its own independent Sovereign State and we must wait for Moshiach. Neturei Karta has gone so far as to demonstrate with Palestinians chanting "Free Free Palestine" and is considered by many Jews as being traitorous. The Satmer community puts much emphasis on insulation and Kedusha and is at odds for the gov't of Israel for being secular and for not representing a Torah perspective. . In fact, given the way the gov't has been treating the hilltop youth, hilltop youth have good reason to have grievances against the  State of Israel as well.  
However, notwithstanding the position of many members of the MGH like HaRav Sternbuch in EY, regarding their opposition in ascending Har HaBayit bizmaneinu, which differs from Rabbi Moshe Tendler, see below, holding someone in jail without charges or due process such as habeas corpus seems like it is a travesty of justice according to Jewish and secular law.  Rabbi Tendler is of this opinion.

Members of the Moetzet Gedolei Hatorah are:

          Rabbi Simcha Bunim Ehrenfeld

·         Rabbi Dovid Feinstein

·         Rabbi Aharon Feldman

·         Rabbi Yosef Frankel

·         Rabbi Yosef Harari-Raful

·         Rabbi Shmuel Kamenetsky

·         Rabbi Aryeh Malkiel Kotler

·         Rabbi Avrohom Chaim Levin

·         Rabbi Yaakov Perlow

·         Rabbi Aaron Schechter

Shmuel Koenig a  dedicated and persistent activist for Eretz Yisroel has been calling the Gedolim on a daily basis.  Shmuel is a very Temimisdic (sincere and idealistic with a touch of innocence and Emunah Peshuta)  person who yearns for the return of the Sanhedrin and for Moshiach to come now in our days. Perhaps it is for this reason, many of the Rabbanim have been amazingly gracious and have been taking his calls in spite of their very hectic schedules.  Shmuel Koenig is persistent in calling upon Members of the Moetzet Gedolei Hatorah to speak up in a forthright manner against a 2 State Solution and for our entitlement of Yehudah and the Shomron based on the Torah and the Covenant Hashem Promised to our Forefathers Avraham Yitzchok and Yaakov.  

His efforts have been reaping positive results.  HaRav Mordechai Tendler and HaRav Feldman agreed to write a letter to PM Netanyahu on Meir Ettinger's behalf.  We of course would love if HaRav Feldman would publicize his letter. 

If any of you receiving this post can lobby these prestigious Rabbanim on Meir Ettinger's behalf it would be greatly appreciated!  

Meir Ettinger and the hilltop youth sincerely yearn for a government in Israel based on Torah.  It seems to me that this yearning is consistent with the Marienbad Resolution of Moetzet Gedolei Hatorah in 1937
