Yishai On Kosel Deal: Soon the Reform Will Put Tefillin On Dogs

5

The former head of the Shas Sephardic party, Eli Yishai, condemned the government’s approval to expand an egalitarian section at the Kosel.

“This is a horrible disaster and an attack on the Holy of Holies,” Eli Yishai said in an interview Thursday with Army Radio, JTA reports. “The next thing we’ll see is Reform Jews putting tefillin on dogs and calling them up to the Torah.”

Yishai is currently not serving in the Knesset; the party he formed more than a year ago, Yachad, failed to reach the electoral threshold in the 2015 elections.

  1. As the Kotske Rebbe said. “Not everything that you think, are you michuyov to say, and not everything that you say are you Michuyov to publish”. While Rabbi Yishai may or may not be right ( I personally do not stay up at night worrying about dogs putting on Tefillin) how do his remarks change anything, and more importantly, do they advance Koved Shem Shamayim, or challila the opposite?

  3. What is the chiddush here?

    If people make a bark mitzvah for their dog, doesn’t it follow that tefillin and aliyos are next? Doesn’t a bar mitzvah bachur usually get tefillin and an aliyah?

  4. Comments like this are standing hate. The L-rd will change the world. It will not be in the favor of the narcissist. Wait for more uncanny worthless terror. A comment like this man said indicates Israel is not ready for redemption. I shudder to think they will now being named, the reform will start to put baggage on planes. He probably just decided that the dogs will be coming to Israel. Watch where you step.

  5. Dumb comment. Reform (if they are jewish) don’t normally put on tefillin. They don’t believe in it just as they don’t believe in toras Moshe
