Urgent meeting of the Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah of Agudas yisrael of America Rav Aharon Shechter will attend

 In an effort to keep shalom, following the threat of resignation of Harav Aaron Shechter Rosh yeshiva Chaim Berlin from the Moetzes, a meeting with  moetzes members will take place this afternoon Wednesday January 14, at Agudah headquarters. Not in attendance, Rav Avrohom Chaim Levin Rosh yeshiva of Telshe Chicago and member of the Moetzes who is recovering from pneumonia, may he have a refuah shlaima.
The previously scheduled  meeting will commence following Minchat at 3 pm. Rav Aharon Shechter will attend and make his case that Agudah remain neutral and not take sides or get involved with the Machlokes of the yeshiva world in Eretz yisrael. Rav Aharon Shechter made it clear that if Agudath Israel  Wont remain neutral, his resignation will remain. In addition Rav malkiel Kotler questioned why Rav Asher Areili shlita who has the biggest shiur on the Mir yeshiva was not invited back to the  Agudah yarchei kallah.

    "Rav Aharon Shechter made it clear that if Agudath Israel Wont remain neutral, he will resign. "

    I thought he already resigned, as per your prior post...
    which is it?

  2. I suppose it is like most resignations - it is conditional in that if you won't do the right thing, I resign.

  3. Why should Agudah remain neutral? They certainly took positions in the past (implicit or otherwise) on the issues facing the charedi community in Israel??

  4. This is a machloikes from which there is no way to avoid choosing sides.
    If you invite him, it's a huge affront against the other side who have labeled him ....
    If you don't invite him, RAS says you're choosing sides.

    I don't see how they can get out of this.

    1. By doing what Hashem wants and not politicians!
      ie. Inviting Gedolai Yisroel even if you think it will upset the reformers.

  5. Whats the raid here? Im not following who is on whos side and who wants what to happen, or not happen?

    1. Due to the leadership of the Degel party being hijacked by reformist elements (who do and say as they please- ostensibly in the name of Gedolim), Hagoan Hatzadik Rav Shmuel Auerbach and many other Gedolim and Rabonim have left it.
      In revenge against these Rabbonim they have suffered increasing redifos and abuse including being excluded from the Aguda Yarchai Kalloh.
      Rav Shechter and all sane frum Yidden are horrified and will do all in their power to stop this nonsense and Bizoyon Hatorah !
