Rav Amnon Yitzchak administers malkos (video)

while there is a custom to submit oneself to a symbolic form of "malkos" before Yom Kippur as a sign of repenting, that is between man and God. The lashes might show a person's sincerity in repentance and get him off of God's blacklist.

Rav Amnon Yitzchak is now administering lashes to singers who wish to repent and get off his own blacklist to allow him to be hired as a singer at events.

Also, one's lashes before Yom Kippur is generally a private event. I remember once walking into a ceremonial lashing on Erev Yom Kippur by a chassidishe fellow in quiet side staircase. I dont remember ever seeing it done publicly.

In the video you see the beis din preparing to administer the lashes, but the lashes are taken off-camera. At about 5:24 you can see the lashes being administered in the reflection of the china cabinet glass - it does not look like he is being struck harshly.

  2. Call that a lashing! It didn't even tickle him ;-)

    I'm not comfortable with the clip either but as it is Rav Benzion Mutsafi in charge there (Rav Amnon Yitzhak is just watching) I'll keep my mouth shut.

  4. I wonder what their source in Torah is to give "ceremonial" malkot. It strikes me slightly as a mockery of a real bet din that administered real malkot back then. It also strikes me as a concept (administering or self-administering forms of corporal punishment to someone as a way of "purifying" oneself of unspecified sins) that isn't Jewish in nature. Seems a little "Opus-Dei"-style to me.

    Love the Nokia classic ring tone in the background during the malkot :-)
