peres-porush-grossmanToday, Israeli President Shimon Peres met with Rabbi Meir Porush and Rav Yitzchok Dovid Grossman, in a final attempt to calm things down in the Emmanuel affair.

At the meeting with Peres, prior to the mass rallies, Rav Grossman said that, “in the next few hours, thousands will take to the streets, headed by Rav [Yosef Shalom] Elyashiv whose descent into the street is comparable to saving lives. While in the background, we as a community must respect the law, I appeal to you Mr. President, to find a way to stop the imprisonment for a few days and allow us, the rabbonim, to find a path of compromise.”

Rabbi Porush said that he represents a public that does not want to degrade or discredit the court and therefore he proposes to begin the summer vacation early this year, such that a solution can be found for the coming school year. Rav Grossman offered to personally teach all the girls at the school, without any discrimination, during the two weeks left until summer vacation.
