A large asifa to protest the drafting of bnei yeshiva in Eretz Yisroel into the Israeli army that had been set to take place this month will instead be held on Sunday, 17 Sivan/June 11, at the Barclays Center in Downtown Brooklyn, NY.

As previously reported on, the event had been slated to be held on Sunday, 3 Sivan/May 28, at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ, but was then cancelled, before being rescheduled for Barclays after Shavuos.

The $4.9 billion home of the Brooklyn Nets seats 18,103 people.

Rabbonim in support of the event include Rav Aharon Schechter, rosh yeshiva of Yeshivas Rabbeinu Chaim Berlin, Rav Elya Ber Wachtfogel, rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Gedolah Zichron Moshe of South Fallsburg, NY, and others.

  1. Do you believe that Reb Ahron Schector Shlita would join with the Neturai Karte who kiss with the Iranian Roshe Hamani Yimach Shemoi Ve`Zichroi? Those Neturai Karte are putting Yiden in Erets Yisroel into a Sakona, by kissing with the Iranian Reshoim.

    • U just don’t know what’s flying. Warmer isn’t natira karta. Warmer is against kissing with arabs. They have with N.k. the same as u!

  2. HaGaon HaRav Aharon Schechter and HaGaon HaRav Elya Ber Wachtfogel have previously attended protests against the Zionist government at Asifas with the Satmar Rebbe shlita.

  3. what a disgrace!
    these Roshei Yeshivos should be teaching bAhavas Yisroel instead.
    without the IDF our situation would be bleak indeed’

  4. “the drafting of bnei yeshiva in Eretz Yisroel into the Israeli army”

    Bnei Torah in Eretz Yisroel register with the government, which gives them deferments from army service.

  5. For all the doubters out there, see this week’s FJJ. There is a full page ad that Rav Aaron Schechter Shlita wrote, describing in detail the seriousness of the matzav.

    • How sad that the FJJ has become the serious Torah paper of our times. Why do the others insist on being politicized eishes ish encouragers???? Why do they seek to be the opposite of what Rav Schach wanted?? Rav Svhach did not want just one Torah view to take hold and be presented.

  6. There is a major difference between the neturei karta and this protest. This is not protesting the israeli government or the IDF as a whole. We are protesting the IDFs mission to draft yeshiva bochurim into the army and eventually cause them to throw off the yoke of yiddishkeit. Obviously we show tremendous hakaras hatov to the soldiers that risk their lives to protect us. Take for example the fact that povoveze puts up the israeli flag every yom haatzmaut. And during the various wars, all the yeshivos were saying tehillim. But when the government wants to destroy yiddishkeit, by bringing bochurim in the army, we cant stand by idly. I hope to see you there.

  7. When ahavas Yisroel means being m’racheim on those who wish to uproot the Torah from Eretz Yisroel and from b’nei Yisroel, while ignoring the words and sage advice (i.e. Daas Torah) of those who have toiled their entire lives to understand and to spread the Ratzon HaShem, we are in a very sorry state.

  8. Did this kinnus come to be? Was anyone there?Any Rabbonim/ Gedolim or only “amcha”?
    if the answer is yes to any of the above why are there no videos or pictures here, or at least a writeup.
    It would be more interesting and important to yidden than news about shtusim all around the world!
