Haredi Synagogue Evicts Sefardim, Throws Holy Ark On Street

Open Sefardi Torah ScrollsAn Ashkenazi haredi syangogue in the haredi city of Bnei Brak using a public building to hold its services evicts a Sefardi haredi congregation that had a permit to use some of the building's space. The Ashkenazim even tossed the Sefardi Aron HaKodesh (Holy Ark) out on the street. And the Ashkenazim got away with it. Why?

Originally published at 9:55 pm CDT 6-30-2013

Yeshiva World, who reports the story, doesn't spell it out, but the answer is simple – Ashkenazim vastly outnumber Sefardim in Bnei Brak, and those bloc votes control all:

The Three Weeks does not seem to have an impact on one Bnei Brak shul where Ashkenazim reportedly ousted Sephardim on Friday night. The shul is located in area Gimmel of the city, located in a library, an official minyan approved by city officials.

Sephardi mispallalim [congregants] in the Beis Yaakov School shul explain police were summoned to oust them from the building. Kikar Shabbat reports that it has eyewitness testimony that the minyan of some 100 mispallalim was escorted out by police and city inspectors.

The shul is called Shiras Yosef, under the leadership of HaGaon [the Genius] HaRav [the Rabbi] Menashe Zilka and the president is listed as the rav of the community, HaGaon HaRav Shlomo Ben Shimon Shlita.

The Sephardi mispallalim explain they received permission for the minyan from Deputy Mayor Eli Dadon, but it appears the Beis Yaakov is uninterested. They add that have a permit to use the school for davening on Shabbos for a period of a number of months. They explain in recent weeks, the door was chained close and at times they could not access the light switches and air conditioning in the electric box, part of the ongoing harassment against them. The mispallalim report that this week was the record-breaker as the Beis Yaakov threw their stuff out into the hallway, including the Aaron Kodesh, and then calling police to evict them.

Despite the fact Rav Zilka showed police the permit he received from Dadon, who also holds the city’s education portfolio, police blocked the rav from entering the Beis Yaakov building.

The Beis Yaakov and City Hall were not available for comment.

Attaboy, Litvaks. That's the way to treat co-religioinists; throw the holy of holies out in the street. Can't make this stuff up.

"co-religionists" . My typing deteriorates after midnight.

It says in the Talmud כל ישראל ערבים זה בזה -- All Israel is responsible for one another. Just as Christians pick and choose which mitzvot are binding, the haredi pick and choose which of Judaism's most essential precepts apply to themselves.

The mayor of bnie brak is sefardi, how many sefardim are in reform or conservative? Almost none baruch hashem!

It seems that "the HaGaon [the Genius] HaRav [the Rabbi]" Menashe Zilka is not as smart as people thought if he could allow this to happen to his flock.

Methinks there is an inside story waiting to be revealed.

Nonetheless, there is no excuse to treat people, and religious articles is such a manner.

It is once again a "Chillul Hashem" - Something that the orthodox have an almost exclusive knack of creating.

rendered speechless once again...
whatever happened to loving jews, israel and the torah?
and on a friday night?
any night....
what happened after this? tell me they resumed "davoning?"

They create a god in their image and tell you obey the god's orders.

Really, they are saying listen to me.

yes, it's like they are speaking for g-d. who gave them permission to do this? I AM A JEW. i did not give them permission.

Lets face it theese bozos are mentally disturbed,thier life is so boring they need something to make it exciting so they fight to entertain each other,grownups who never matured thats what they are.

Speechless!! These people are righteous in their own eyes. Their causeless hatred will cause bad things to occur for them and Eretz Yisroel. And they did this during the 3 weeks!

This is not a case "Ashkenazi" and "Sephardi". It is a case of how Haredists treat Jews. It is antisemitism plain and simple when a group of non-Jews expresses hate toward Jews for no reason other than that they are Jewish.

Haredism has long made the case that it hates Jews and that it hates Israel (its very existence, whatever its politics), and yet it wishes to feed off of both, just like many other anti-semites. Jewish law states that one should not drink water from a river at night, lest he swallow a leech which can be fatal. Water is a symbol of Torah. One who does not have a thorough education in Torah should not seek education from a "source" just because everyone uses it and it is large and established, i.e. a river. One might swallow a leech. It will sneak in with the water, attach, drain you of your life force, and ultimately kill both of you. The analogy of Haredism (not Haredim) to leeches should be self explanatory.

Just to clarify the distinction, many Haredim are beginning to question and moderate Haredism from the harsh and foreign religion that it is into a form that can be compatible with Judaism. One day, hopefully, a leader will emerge who will have power and charisma and change the face of its education. Until then, it will have the same problem as Islam, and Muslims will have to suffer with Islam Haredism until Islam Haredism comes to grips with its own failure as a philosophy. So will Jews have to suffer with kosher style Haredism until the latter comes to grips with its own failure as a philosophy.

The two dumb bozos, ruthie and janci, a shiddech made in dumb land.
You don't know anything about the story you already have remarks.

"yes, it's like they are speaking for g-d. who gave them permission to do this? I AM A JEW. i did not give them permission."

Priceless!!!

(obviously whatever you say is with divine permission....)

Are "ruthie" and "janci" some kind of "chareidi" plants, to try and make anti chareidi posters seem unbelievably stupid?

You just can't make it up.
Keep it up goons, you crack me up!

: jimmyInBkln -

ruthie and jancs are far wiser than you will ever be.


charedism has (d)evolved into an ideology suited for the intellectually bankrupt, the ignorant,hopeless intellectual cowards, and a few BT's who are either mentally unstable or social misfits.
it revolves ostensibly around studying and following the holy torah 24/7 yet ignores its most basic principles. as hillel said, it should be summed up as "dont to to others what you wouldnt want them to do to you, and the rest is all commentary".
if they would use that as a guideline to how individual mitzvot are to be understood and applied, it wouldnt be so troubling or dangerous even though none of the torah is from god. but as they stray further and further from the few redeeming parts of the torah they become more and more dangerous in their ignorance of the very books around which their entire lives revolve.

"ruthie and jancs are far wiser than you will ever be"

Uhuh,lol
These are examples of your "wise men"
Illiterates.........

jimmyInBkln-

in which category are you?

" intellectually bankrupt, the ignorant,hopeless intellectual cowards, and a few BT's who are either mentally unstable or social misfits."

All of the above?

I'm only surprised the Ashkis didn't "rescue" the sefer Torah for their own use.

rendered speechless once again...
whatever happened to loving jews, israel and the torah? and on a friday night?

yes, they resumed, and sheuyqeled as they went.
but seriously, those aren't jews any longer.
I don't even think that their fathers generation was any besser.
they have adopted all the chumros of Sdom and 'Amoroh.

jimmyInBkln -You are better of hanging youreself on the hightest tree near you ,you come in here just to show youre hate with anyone who disagrees with you, you sicko.

Janci,
You are a total nincompoop.

Chalk up another Chillul HaShem; it's much easier to worry about kosher wheat for Passover than it is to be concerned about desecrating God and Judaism.

jimmyInBkln--I see you answered me so quickly now i am convinced youre hate is truly consuming you,you confirmed to me that you are a true sicko.

I think Satmar live by an entirely different principle:


כל ישראל שונאים זה בזה

Would love to hear the ashcan ozzies' justification for this one.

Nevertheless the paragraph under the headline, as happens frequently here, is misleading - the article says threw their stuff out *into the hallway*, including the Aaron Kodesh - which is NOT the same as throwing it into the street.
