Following the multitudes who attended gatherings across the country last week for Reb Sholom Mordechai ben Rivka Rubashkin, thousands gathered last night [Thursday, May 6th] in Kiryas Yoel to learn about the continuing injustice and show solidarity for the brother in tzaar.
The kinnus in Kiryas Yoel was addressed by Rav Menachem Meir Weissmandel, rov of Nitra in Monsey. The assemblage also heard from Reb Getzel Rubashkin, a son of Reb Sholom Mordechai, and Rabbi Chaim Berger.
Rav Pinchos Lipschutz, publisher of Yated Ne’eman who has spearheaded the effort to assist Reb Sholom Mordechai, was in attendance but politely declined repeated requests for him to address the gathering, having spoken at several gatherings last week.
Last night’s event followed similar gatherings in communities including Flatbush, Boro Park, Lakewood and Chicago.
