there are guarantees, and there are guarantees!

Just a few days ago, the son of Rav Chaim Kanievsky, Rav Yitchak Shaul Kanievsky, said that his father, Rav Chaim, had said the whoever votes for, and helps in canvassing votes for, UTJ will merit a seat in Gan Eden, along with meriting to have good children and parnassah, and Rav Chaim concluded saying he is guarantor on all this.

Obviously a guarantee like this from Rav Chaim Kanievsky is going to make some waves and draw i some people who might not have previously considered voting UTJ.

Shas campaigned similarly back in 2006 with a promise from Rav Ovadiah Yosef.

It seems that not only are the Litvishe Haredim turning a bit more Hassidic, but now are also turning somewhat Sefardic. Maybe all distinctions are somewhat blending and soon there will be little difference between the different groups.

If it works, it works. You can't argue with results. UTJ, Degel Hatorah, is now putting out campaign videos of people (people who do not look like the typical UTJ voter) saying they are voting UTJ because of Rav Kanievsky's guarantee of gan eden.

I only hope that his guarantee is worth more than the recent guarantee of the Haredi parties that the rotation agreement between Gantz and Netanyahu would be fulfilled..

  1. And if it does not work, then how is one supposed to collect on this guarantee?
