Beis Din Rules Hafkoas Kiddushin heter not valid

 Matzav just published the following letter from R Sholom Kamenetsky acknowledging and accepting that Rav Dovid Feinstein's beis din had declared the heter totally worthless. He also indicated that his father has already stated that he would accept the ruling of Rav Dovid Feinstein. Matzav writes " In his letter, Rav Kamenetsky affirms the acceptance of the ruling of the bais din, referencing an earlier declaration of his esteemed father, Rav Shmuel Kamenetsky, rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva of Philadelphia, that the p’sak of the bais din would be final".

  2. * * * HIAS vs Jews * * *

    Mark Hetfield, the President and CEO of HIAS (which used to stand for Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society), wants to use HIAS to resettle Muslim refugees in Europe and the USA. And he wants Jews to pay for it, by donating to HIAS.

    Mark Hetfield fails to comprehend important realities about Muslim refugees:

    Most refugees from Muslim countries have greater hatred against Jews than did the average German during World War II.

    During World War II, the Muslims were allies of the Nazis, and pressured the British to cut-off all escape routes that Jews might use to escape from Europe to Palestine.

    In the decades that followed World War II, the Muslims publicly praised Hitler and acted as havens of refuge for convicted Nazi war criminals.

    In Muslim countries, the anti-Jewish propaganda book “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” is a perennial best-seller.

    These innocent Middle-Eastern refugees are the children and grandchildren of Arab soldiers who fought several wars whose goal was to “push the Jews into to sea” by destroying the entire State of Israel. Thousands of Jews were killed in those wars; now Mark Hetfield of HIAS wants us to help the children and grandchildren of those Arab soldiers who killed thousands of Jews, and wanted to kill millions of Jews.

    These innocent Middle-Eastern refugees eagerly look forward to the day when the entire state of Israel is permanently wiped off-the-map, to be followed by an international genocide campaign whose goal will be to make the entire planet Earth Judenrein – free of Jews.

    These innocent Middle-Eastern refugees have already caused thousands of Jews to flee from France and other European nations.

    These innocent Middle-Eastern refugees are already quietly boycotting ALL Jewish owned stores and businesses, not just Israel.

    Last but not least, HIAS should be defunded and disbanded and dissolved, because they are pursuing policies that will cause another Holocaust.

    Mark Hetfield’s HIAS web site never mentions the fact the “H” in HIAS used to stand for “Hebrew”. Maybe that is because HIAS is no longer a real Jewish organization, and does not reflect real Jewish values.

    “According to the original law of Mohammed, there are no innocent civilians.
    Radical Islamists consider all people — in or out of military uniform — who do not believe in the original Islam of Mohammed, to be the enemy, until they convert or are subjected to Islamic law.”

  3. The gadlus is that R Shmuel has stated publicly that he will accept this. And will contact the parties.

  4. What happened to the other comment by "disgusted?" Has Pinny Lipshuch threatened you?

  5. I see by your removal of my comments that you are a typical Philly/Aguda apparatus.

    Good to know.

    Maybe talk to some of the real bnai tayreh in Lakewood and educate yourself on how to differentiate between gadlus and slick PR.

    1. He is not Philly, but he is Hamodia/Aggudah.

      That comment was completely baseless speculation that talmidei chachamim might be doing evil things.

      Besides for being the right thing to do for the blog, it's also a good thing for you that he deleted your comment. Passions about this issue are running high at the moment, but when things calm down and you're able to look back at things in the proper perspective, you may appreciate that you don't have comments like that on your conscience.

    3. but when things calm down and you're able to look back at things in the proper perspective

      The perspective of a bunch of mamzeririm running around?

      That comment was completely baseless speculation
