The Son of the Toldot Avraham Yitzchak Rebbe and the Zionist Flag

For a few days now, some haredi forums go wild, as Toldot Avraham Yitzchak made an agreement with the Israeli government regarding a Cohanim access at the Kever of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai in Meron. Especially due to the upcoming Lag ba'Omer.


  1. You can imagine the reaction. There will be some actions in Meah Shearim, I guarentee you!

    In the meantime, Mea Shearim should be used to Rebbe Shmuel Yaakov's attitude towards the Israeli government and the Belzer Chassidim.

    A few years ago, the TAY Rebbe participated in a Simche of the Belzer Chassid (and former Knesset member) Israel Eichler. Afterwards Satmar couldn't stop criticizing Rebbe Shmuel Yaakov.

    The Toldot Aharon members may find a justification for voting for Rebbe David Kahn and not making his older brother, Rebbe Shmuel Yaakov, their Rebbe.

    Honestly, I am wondering why the TAY are still a member of the Edah when it doesn't fit the Rebbe's behaviour. I personally think that he would like to leave but cannot make the move due to some of his members and his competitors in Mea Shearim.

  3. Didnt the TAY rabbe say in an interview that he wouldn't have a problem with the zionist state if they didnt violate shabbes? Its not the first time he moves in a different direction than the Edah and satmer..

    It was his Rebbitzen and the Rebbe together giving this interview in the US. A little later, the Rebbitzen got phone calls from some anti - Zionists in Mea Shearim and denied any statements she and her husband had made.
