Rischa D'Araisa-Season 2 Episode 7-Should the Satmar Rov be classified in the category of "Flawed Gedolim"??

 

Rischa D'Araisa-Season 2 Episode 7-Should the Satmar Rov be classified in the category of "Flawed Gedolim"??



On the basis of material culled together in this eight year old blog-Rabbi Bechhofer demands Rabbi Kivelevitz admit to his conclusion that Rav Yoel zt"l suffered from serious flaws which demote him in comparison to other giants of the 20th century.

Kivelevitz forces himself to read the ugly invective that the young Rav Teitelbaum penned against the first Chief Rabbi of Modern Israel,Rav Avraham Yitzchak HaKohen Kook.

Rabbi Bechhofer points out that despite the Rov being saved by Kastner a staunch Zionist,and his community reaping the benefits of Israeli government policy,Rav Teitelbaum never recanted or softened his extreme positions.

Rabbi Kivelevitz offers justification for the incendiary language used by the Satmarer,as his intense belief that the whole edifice of creation was threatened by Zionism and any figure that lent it support.

Kivelevitz feels that Bechhofer's ire should be directed more concerning the Rov's views on the wars that defended the State of Israel.

Rischa D'Araisa-Season 2-Episode 6-The Only True "Gezunta Vinter" will be with Universal Healthcare and the Repeal of the Second Amendment

 Rischa D'Araisa-Season 2-Episode 6-The Only True "Gezunta Vinter" will be with Universal Healthcare and the Repeal of the Second Amendment


Rabbi Bechhofer surprises Rabbi Kivelevitz with his call for repealing the second amendment.

The Rabbis debate the validity of the position staked out by Ben Shapiro and others that had the Jews not been deprived of weapons they might have resisted Kristallnacht and other pre-war horrors.

Rabbi Bechhofer has utter disdain for the Saint Louis couple who brandished weapons in the face of rioters approaching their home.

Kivelevitz is skeptical to his friend's insistence that providing free universal healthcare to all is a Torah command.

Bechhofer refers to this passage in the Nishmas Avraham as indicative of the model suggested by the United Nation's declaration of Health as a basic human right.

He therefore is against the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett's ascension to the Supreme Court due to her written views on Obamacare.
