Jewish protests

Filed under: Website Kvetching — Reb Moshe @ 12:01 pm

All over Israel Jews are protesting the up and coming Gay Marches. It took me more then 30minutes to backtrack the roadblocks in one area and I had to spin the car around when I saw kids opening someones car trunk and jumping on the cars. I think this is a lack of Rabbinical and schools teaching the children the importance of protesting with good midos. In fact, no CHILD should be protesting at all or EVER involved in a political statement. It only causes the children harm and parents, rabbi’s and schools should speak more against the involvement of children. At the same time, a rightful protest is certainly needed and I hope there is a well organized one. We must stop such a march on holy soil where such a thing to take place is prohibited. There is still no greater protest then to pray to Hashem on this!

Years ago I was by the Shabbos protest on Shmuel Hanavi street. After being there for 2minutes, I walked away almost in tears. This is not how we show the light of Hashem and draw people back to religion. Uy, Uy… I cried. It is not the way! 


  1. what is to be done then?

  2. To protest such chillul HaShem is an obligation and a mitzvah! The Torah tells us that G-d will hold those equally responsible who keep quiet during the public desecration of His Name! Sexual imorality leads to exile (G-d forbid!) My only wish and what saddens me most is that some of our orthodox brethren dont protest with this kind of gusto when the Land of ISrael is at stake (which is why we have expulsions). May Hakadosh Baruch Hu forgive our stupidity!
