OUTRAGE: Uproar After Eretz Nehederet Mocks Maran Hagaon Rav Chaim Kanievsky

Eretz Nehederet, Israel’s biggest satire program, apparently has no lines it won’t cross. The show intends to present satirical imitations of Hagaon Rav Chaim Kanievsky and his grandson, Yanky Kanievsky. The program is scheduled to air tonight.

The skit has drawn condemnation from charedi and national religious circles, Arutz Sheva reports.

“There are no limits in this country,” wrote charedi journalist Ariel El-Harrar.

“I protest the violation of the dignity of Rav Chaim Kanievsky,” wrote MK Bezalel Smotrich. “The satirists insult not only the rabbi but the mighty traditional, religious and charedi public who admire the great sages of Israel.” He added: “Your contempt teaches mainly about you and your world of values. During your silly sketch, R. Chaim will teach a few more pages of Gemara. Everything else is much less important.”

  1. chazal say that hamivazeh talmid chacham is punished with a makeh without a refuah – so in the midst of covid id say this is a terrible idea of theirs – so the joke is on them. may Hashem help them do real tshuva…
    and for the guy who asked for a link – bad idea – if you watch it then its mashpia on you and then you may get judged with them.
    to take part in an aveira by watching instead of making a machah makes you m’shutif in the aveira.
    a clear example of this is found in the gemara in Nedarim daf 7b – check it out…
    May Hashem send us moshiach soon to show us the true way and be mkariv all the yidden – the frummeh and the fryeh…

  2. These mockers are clearly from the “eirev rav” or “zera Amalek.” According to Rambam, one who mocks a Talmid Chochom has no portion in the World to Come.
