22

rav-gershon-edelsteinRav Gershon Edelstein, the beloved senior Rosh Yeshiva of Ponovezh Yeshiva in Bnei Brak, has said that he is shocked that a chareidi soldier was attacked in Meah Shearim and that those who committed this act have “caused great damage to the world of Torah.”

“It is incumbent upon the people of the Eidah Hachareidus to condemn the attack on the soldier,” said Rav Edelstein.

After the soldier was attacked yesterday and Rav Edelstein was informed of the incident, he exclaimed, “Whoever did this caused great damage to the world of Torah. They are not just thugs, but also fools. What benefit do they believe will emerge from their actions?”

Rav Edelstein added: “I am very puzzled by the fact that the leaders of the Eidah Hachareidus in Yerushalayim have not yet condemned the incident. It is their duty and responsibility to do so.”
