Quote of the Day (qotd)

If only a small amount of what they are saying you did are correct, you are not a rav, not religious, and not a human. Cut off your peyos, Mr. Lior Chen. It is degrading to the payos. it is degrading to the kipa. it is degrading to you and it is degrading to us. It will not help you. It just increases your crime. As if you did it out of ideology. You can be sure, even Rebbe Nachman will not grab onto your peyos to pull you out of Hell.....
....Do us a favor and stop using the word "Breslav". You are not Breslav. You are not associated to the Torah of Rebbe Nachman... There is no Torah that says to hit children the way you hit them. There is no hetter to cause pain to children. As a rav musmach I tell you - you have no portion in the World to Come. You have no portion in this world either. Not with Breslav Hassidim. Not with other hassidim. Not with the religious and not with the secular...

---- Chief Rabbi of Safed, Rav Shmuel Eliyahu

in letter penned to Lior Chen. For the full letter, see NRG.

  1. since when does being a rav musmach grant you inside info on who gets into heaven?

    (not too be taken as a defense of the accused whose alleged crimes if commited speak for themselves quite loudly, but I think R. Eliahu is more interested in having his name in public than he is in any actual condemnation of the accused)
