Update: Meeting of Moetzet Gedolei Hatorah. Inyanei DeYoma Sheilos


Unfortunately, Rabbi Shmuel Kamenetsky told Shmuel Koenig that Rabbi Feldman did not raise the issue of Meir Ettinger at today's meeting with Moetzet Gedolei Hatorah.  

We understand that Rabbi Aharon Feldman is going to Eretz Yisroel for Pesach.

We are eagerly awaiting opinions, Psak, and/or letters from members of the Moetzet Gedolei Hatorah regarding Inyanei DeYoma.  We would like to hear their positions on:

  • Pidyon Shvuyim: Freeing Meir Ettinger from Adminsitrative Detention.  Freeing Jonathan Pollard from horrible Parole.  Freeing other hilltop youth from Administrative detention and putting a stop once and for all f disabling their ability to incarceration based on Illegal and immoral Orders. .
If they need a precedent, HaRav Moshe Feinstein  sent a Telegram on behalf of Rabbi Meir Kahane in 1980 asking that he be released from Administrative Detention.  Initially, the government of Israel seemed to say that their hands were tied but practically, a month later Rabbi Meir Kahane was released.

Is Administrative Detention according to Halacha allowed in a Jewish Court of Law?  Rabbi Mordechai Tendler says that it is not.

Rabbi Mordechai Tendler's letter to Prime Minister Netanyahu. 

A tremendous Yasher Koach to Rabbi Mordechai Tendler for writing this letter, and for sharing it publicly.  Rabbi Tendler holds that  Administrative imprisonment has no precedent in Jewish Ethical and Halachic Tradition.  "To delay is a violation of "Inui HaDin"

We need to have an outpouring of such letters to be effective!  Please 

How can we be silent when young Jewish Kids are locked up in jail, tortured and abused, or under house arrest or unable to go home or school because of these unethical and draconian Administrative orders?

Court rules: Jewish detainees to remain without lawyers. Four suspects to remain in Shin Bet custody; three to remain without legal counsel. 

Jonathan Pollard:   Editorial: A Most Chilling Notice of Action Tuesday, April 12, 2016 at 9:02 pm  Yasher Koach for Hamodia for printing this article.  We need Rabbanim and more people to write letters on Jonathan Pollard's behalf,  to make an impact!

  • Property Rights:  Double standard? PM saves illegal Arab home, but not synagogue

PM's office saves illegal Arab home from planned demolition on Tuesday, but leaves young Jewish couple homeless ahead of Pesach  holiday.

When there is no outpouring of  protest by Hamonei Am, the Government of Israel and the Defense Ministry have the allusion that they can do what they want, and that they can get away with it, and no one will stop them.  Of course all this is false because as believing Jews we know "Yesh Din VeYesh Dayan", we all have to answer to a Higher Authority. 

All of us who are silent as these miscarriages of Justice as they are happening under our eyes,  often not reported in mainstream Jewish Media, will have to answer to a heavenly court as per why we were complicit and didn't even try to stop these illegal orders, miscarriages of Justice from happening.  

In the News that you might have missed:

Soldier's case strengthening: commander admits he would have shot too, comrade says were told terrorist had a bomb belt.

Yet Israeli soldier who shot at still alive terrorist is to be tried on manslaughter?

Enough is Enough!

Illegal Arab house (Arutz Sheva)

We are a little over a week away from Passover. However, leading into the Holiday of Freedom, it is just another day and another disturbing article in Arutz Sheva about double standards and discrimination in Israel.

Is there a double standard? Yes!
Against whom? Against Israeli Jews!

Double standard? PM saves illegal Arab home, but not synagogue

On Tuesday the city of Jerusalem, supported by the Israeli police, were about to demolish an illegal Arab home built in the middle of a national park, when a call from the office of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu ordered police to stand down.

A government official claimed the decision was necessary to lower tensions.

The article continues:

The Prime Minister's intervention on behalf of the Arab Tutunji family, didn't stop the demolition of a Jewish home, carried out early Wednesday morning - in the Jewish town of Beit El.

At around 3 a.m. Civil Administration enforcement units, supported by Israeli police, arrived at the home of Inbal and Uri Aloni. Within minutes the house was destroyed, leaving the couple - who are expecting their first child - homeless ahead of the Pesach holiday.

Nor did the Prime Minister's Office intervene on behalf of a Carmei Tzur synagogue, dedicated to the memory of the murdered Gilad, Naftali and Eyal, which had been desecrated by Arab arson in February, and destroyed.

How can this be? And why are we seeing this time and again? Why is it if a Jew in Yehuda/Shomron adds an extension to a home or builds a bathroom, orders for their destruction are given and acted on as rapidly as possible. In the meantime, there arethousands of illegal Arab buildings throughout Yehuda, Shomron, Jerusalem, the Negev and the Galil still standing, totally ignored by the Israeli authorities.

Why is lip service being paid to this egregious inequality? When will the Israeli government order and act to tear down the incredible amount of illegal Arab building?

When will justice be enacted equally? 

But the settlers are rebuilding!

And while we are on the topic of freedom...

Arutz Sheva:
Court rules: Jewish detainees to remain without lawyers

A District Court judge rejected a series of appeals on behalf of four Jewish Israelis being detained as part of a Shin Bet investigation Tuesday, despite public protest over the case. 

The judge rejected four appeals against the extension of the suspects' detention, and reject three out of four appeals against the decision to prevent the suspects from meeting with attorneys. 

The cause for the crackdown remains unknown, as circumstances of the case remain under gag order. 

As with the double standard applied to Jewish and Arab building, there is something wrong with this picture - Jewish teens being held in prison without being charged and with no recourse to legal counsel.


We would like to know.

If the government of Israel is committing evil acts against a segment of the population, and we are complicit, then according to the rules of Grama,  what does it say about ourselves and our accountability in a Heavenly Court? 

If you are in contact with any of the Moetzet Gedolei Hatorah please let them know that you are very concerned about the welfare of these young Jewish kids who have been framed and libeled in the news as "Jewish Terrorists". This then turns into a full grown blood libel on all Jews,  by the likes of the New York Times and International Media, the UN, EU etc.  What started out as graffitti by Jewish Settler kids, in response to provocations of those who destroyed their homes, turns into Arson charges,and charges of murdering a Palestinian baby with his parents in Duma.  How is this different than Blood Libels in the past except that this blood libel  is fueled by unsuspecting Jews who condemn their fellow Jews without evidence or a fair trial other than believing false reports by Shabak?

Since then
