Rav Moshe Sternbuch threatened for his support of certain rabbinic organization


האיום: "נגיע אליך ואל אביך הראב"ד - ושם זה יסתיים"
המאבק המלוכלך בין הארגונים המתיימרים לפעול למניעת חילול קברים - עולה מדרגה • בן הגר"מ שטרנבוך זכה לאיום טלפוני מ'אתרא קדישא' עקב תמיכתו במתחרה


הבוקר (חמישי) נחצו כל הקווים האדומים: קבוצה מכת ה"סיקריקים" התקשרה לרב חיים-עוזר שטרנבוך, בנו של ראב"ד העדה החרדית הרה"ג רבי משה שטרנבוך ואיימה עליו כי "תטפל בו, תחנך אותו ותעמיד אותו במקום" - כך נודע ל"כיכר השבת". מה הסיבה ולפיה יצא הקצף של ה"סיקריקים" על בנו של הראב"ד


  1. Translation please?

    Which rabbinic organizations does Rav Moshe Shternbuch support?

    Who is upset?

  2. The ones who threatened rabbi Sternbuch and his son are the Asra Kadisha organization who are headed by rabbi Shmidel who is sort of Netuei Karta, they are upset at rabbi Sternbuch for supporting another organization closer to Agudah.

    Both organizations are fighting against development in locations where they claim there are Jewish graves.

    In any case there is no story here, because this is the way issues are handled in Meah Shearim (rabbi Sternbuch lives in Har Nof though).

    When they have no Zionists to fight against, they turn to fight each other which in a way it is a good thing.

  3. The issue involves certain fanatics known as the Sikrikim (a branch of Neturei Karta) who oppose his support of an organizations "Aguda lmenias chilul kevarim" for preventing chilul hashem concerning burial places,7340,L-3246232,00.html

  4. There is an adage in the Haredi world, where they blame the extreme or borderline actions of someone on his mentoring - but only if it was a mentor in Modernish world ; so R' JB Soloveitchik is blamed for anything done by musmachim of YU. Or, R Yosef Burg was blamed for his son becoming an extreme leftist etc.

    The hypocrisy here is that non of the crimes comited by haredi extremists and offshoots are blamed on their own mentors. Nobody would dare to utter a word of criticism against the founder of the NK movement; the violence and pogroms committed by extremist chassidim are disconnected form their rebbes. the Yeshiva wars and attempted assasination of a Rosh Yeshiva in Bnei Brak are never suggested to be an logical outcome of the extremism taught by the previous Rosh Yeshiva.

  5. Eddie,

    Good points. I wasn't aware that there was an assassination attempt on a Rosh Yeshiva in Bnei Brak. Please share the info.
