There is a poster put out by Kupa stating that Rav Chaim Kanievsky instructs RBSA residents to give their Matanos L'Evyonim to Kupa.THIS IS NOT WHAT HE MEANT!!!!Rav Chaim meant that RBSA residents should give their Matanos L'Evyonim to LOCAL organizations.(Read the Hebrew on the poster).This is a misrepresentation on the part of Kupa designed to hurt Lema'an Achai.Those who heed to the dvar HaShem should double their support for Lema'an Achai to counter this!
Isn't this amazing...I have no less than 5 letters from various organizations asking me to give Matanot L'Evyonim to them.Each one has Rav Chaim Kanievsky's picture and request.Now he says only give to Kupa.Which should I believe?Maybe I shouldn't listen to anything he says.Will the real Gadol please stand up?
And what about Kupa of Mishkenos Yaakov (Rav Goldstien's Kupa)?Did Rav Chaim mean that we who live "down the hill" should only give to Kupa of RBSA?Chutzpa on Kupa's part!
it is time for the rabbonim, such as Rav Malinowitz who stood up for Nathan Slifkin and others, to come out publicly and condem such behaviour. Until then i will give all my local tzedaka to lemaan Achai.This kind of behavior has to stopped
Why must my intelligence be insulted by such adverts?Although I have the utmost respect for Rabbi Kanievsky and his accomplishments in Torah could someone please tell me what he knows about RBSA and its organizations?According to both the Charedi and Ynet news, Rabbi Perlstein was the messenger about RBS and the Kupa to Rav Chaim.If this is in fact the case how could anyone believe what was relayed about RBS by Rabbi Perlstein.Let's hope the whole thing is just one big and sad Purim joke.
I saw this sign on the way to daven.Now I see that Kupa wants me to treat them like all of the other tzedakos with pictures of Rabbonim putting into their box.I thought that they were different than the rest.I will do with their ads what I do with the others...ignore them.
