Sickening: Demented Individuals Send Box to Rav Shternbuch With His Seforim Destroyed


rav-shternbuch-seforimLate last night, an Arab driver knocked on the door of the home of Rav Moshe Shternbuch, gaon av bais din of the Eidah Hachareidus, in Har Nof. After receiving no response, the man continued to pound on the door. A neighbor of Rav Shternbuch, Rav Naftali Shtitzer, who heard the noise, went outside and asked the man what he wants.

“I have a delivery for the Shternbuch family,” explained the man, presenting a great package to Rav Shtitzer.

Rav Shtitzer suggested that the man leave the package with him, stating that he would give it to the correct family. The man agreed and departed.

It was evident that this was done intentionally and deliberately to cause bizayon to the Raavad. Attached to the ruined seforim was a letter containing disgusting obscenities directed at Rav Shternbuch.

The package was apparently sent by radicals who identify with the Asra Kadisha organization, which is supported by Rav Zalman Leib Teitelbaum of Satmar and whose president is Rav Yitzchok Tuvia Weiss. The individuals wished to express their feelings about Rav Shternbuch’s rulings regarding the construction taking place in Ramat Bet Shemesh, where these hooligans claim there are Jewish graves.

Rav Shtitzer met with neighborhood rabbonim, who were appalled. They decided that they could no longer remain silent and have organized a rally with the participation of all local residents to protest the desecration of kavod haTorah that has been carried out by a group of demented individuals who have no line they won’t cross.

  1. To # 6 – No it doesn’t come from unemployment.
    It comes from bitul Torah. There are thousands of people who are sitting in the bais medrash all day – what you refer to as unemployed – & they would never act this way.

  2. These demented individuals are being funded from NY,,, follow the bucks $$$$ & all will be clear.

    Same bucks used for demos in Jerusalem, holocaust outfits for kids, burning of flags, mad havoc and graffiti on Yad Vshem.. This is a will coordinated attack

  3. why do feel compelled to report this? You couldn’t find anything to report that you needed to fan the flames

    There’s much more good going than you are reporting–it is not necessary to turn this website into a tabloid.

  4. @4 how is letting everyone know this story taking a stand for kavod hatorah? now people see the bizayon that happened thus making it bigger.
