  1. Some 40 odd years ago on the long summer evenings, some italian youths used to drive by the Yeshiva and throw rocks at the windows.

    A couple of the bochurim desired to make a ‘vigilante’ group to be prepared to confront and stop them.

    R’ Shmuel Berenbaum told them emphatically: “no”


    “If you use fisticuffs ,they’ll subsequently respond with knives..
    If you use knives ,they’ll subsequently respond with guns..
    If you use guns ,they’ll subsequently respond with bombs….It isn’t for us to attempt to use Eisav’s methods.”
