The son of the Slonimer Rebbe, Rav Moshe Berezovsky, paid a visit to Slabodka rosh yeshiva Rav Moshe Hillel Hirsch in Bnei Brak.

During the meeting, Rav Berezovsky requested that Rav Hirsch call for a mass protest similar to the “March of the Million” which was held over 20 years ago.

Rav Hirsch listened to the request, but according to Kol Chai Radio, he rejected it outright, saying that such a move would only “fan the flames,” and potentially lead to elections – something which the chareidi parties do not wish to see happen right now.

During the conversation, Rav Hirsch explained, “This is not the time, and we must not bring about the breakdown of the coalition before we have exhausted every effort to pass a Draft Law by consensus.”

  1. The Yeshiva has many American wealthy donors who truly admire the IDF and feel a certain pride of the IDF’s success.
    We have to hope that we didn’t alienate those donors with what we said till now.

  2. Firstly, Hrh”g R’ Moshe Hillel shlita would be a better title for the Gadol Hador. Secondly, Hrh”g R’ Moshe Berezovsky Shlita is the Slonimer Rosh Yeshiva; he isnt just the son. He is a Gaon Atzum! The rebbe has other sons which are just sons but not this one.

  3. That march of the million was a missed opportunity to simply daven for Moshiach. Obviously a Divinely arranged oversight but please let’s not forget that Moshiach is the ultimate and only answer. Make that the focus and goal of a so-called march/demonstration.

  4. Just about every iconoclast in our “modern” history was a mored against the yoresh of the Alter Rov. These include the Bialystoker old guard and many, many more “obscure” persons. The tremors are returning. Be innoculated. The jungermon is peaking too early. M’Lamdenu: “This is good.”
