Letters to the Editor: Chilul Hashem

letters to the editor

Dear Editor:

I am writing in regard to your editorial Heard in the Bagel Store: Not A Smart Move regarding the chilul Hashem that the Satmar Chassidim caused a week ago. This group is known to have caused on several occasions a chilul Hashem.

Many years ago the views of the Satmar Rebbe z”l and the Munkatcher Rebbe z”l planted seeds regarding Eretz Yisrael, As Pirkei Avos states Chachamim hizaharu b’divreichem.

Unfortunately, these seeds blossomed into an uncontrollable wild spreading weed. Everything that occurs to Klal Yisrael and Eretz Yisrael is orchestrated and manipulated by the Ribbono Shel Olam. By demonstrating against Eretz Yisrael and stating that its current existence is contrary to the Torah is in effect denying Hashem.

In addition to causing a chilul Hashem, the greatest desecration in Yahadus, these individuals may also be giving up their respective portions in Olam Habba.

I do have a question. Where are all the leaders who should be denouncing their actions; and, possibly doing more?
