THIS EDITOR SHOOTS BACK AGAIN  AFTER JEREMYs  SO CALLED APOLOGY
….. KEEP READING DOWN.

My fight with Arutz Sheva,Rabbi Tovia Singer and jeremy gimpel

PART 1

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU REALIZED YOUR MOTHER OR FATHER OR BEST FRIEND LIED TO YOU?  HOW DID YOU FEEL?  HOW HURT WERE YOU?

I WAS DEVASTATED from Arutz Sheva  top radio hosts especially Rabbi Tovia Singer. It is taking me a few weeks to write this .Before I sat down to do so I wanted to question as many Rabbis as I can to check my feelings, my bias, my emotions, my hot personality, my lack of  enough Torah knowledge.I wanted to know if I had a right to get so very angry on “AIR” with jeremy gimple and Rabbi Tovia. Did I make a fool of myself by getting so angry. I know that if I remained calm and ‘processed’ jeremy I would have made a complete fool of him, I have the experience from business and from life. One of the techniques is to raise the pitch a little to test his endurance to ‘heat’. jeremy couldnt take it from  the first words and just before I was cut from the show he blurted out in his anger  ”and you rich jews in Boro Park in your mansions……..”. 

As a  ‘caller’ on air and not a guest, it was unlikely that I would be able to debate jeremy any way. Rabbi Tovia Singer, yes , but it was jermey gimpel that made the remarks that I was calling about,,and that  was one of the thoughts racing through my mind in  the heat of the shouting match between jeremy  and me, what can I say before I get cut off.

Believe me I tried to find a rabbi of the many rabbis torah orthodox rabbis, that will rebuke me. I wanted to be wrong, I wanted to be embarrassed, I wanted my hero Rabbi Tovia Singer to remain  MY HERO.

Instead I found only supporters of my anger. Middle aged elder Rabbis  told me that I didnt yell enough on the ‘air’ , or I wasnt angry enough. Now let me be clear.I do not speak to or know any ’sophisticated  thousand dollar suited rabbis such as shlomo riskin that jeremy gimpel so admires. The rabbis I speak to are scholars, full time Torah learner, teachers in yeshivot that adhere to traditional teachings according to the LAWS as brought down from MOSHE RABBEINU to us the people. They do not make independent decisions that would not be accepted universally by a like bet din or by the chief ashkanaz or sephardic rabbis.

In fact Rabbi Tovia and I exchanged emails after the show about the rabbi we both knew, He went to learn with and I went to just hear his shiurim, RABBI AVIGDOR MILLER ZTL. I must stress that I am by no means a good learner, I struggle like most of us. BUT I ALSO STRESS THAT I PRAY EVERY DAY FOR HASHEM TO GUIDE ME, TO KNOW AND SEPARATE THE GOOD FROM THE BAD, TO LEAD ME TO THE GOOD,  STRENGTH TO STUDY EVEN A LITTLE TORAH, TO IMPROVE  MYSELF.

This started maybe 3 weeks ago when jermey gimpel was co-host of  Rabbi Tovia Singer. Jeremy started  the show talking about his experiences in America the week before. Mind you on speaking engagements which we are pretty sure has to be for a fee. FOR AMERICAN MONEY. Jeremy said ON AIR. it was horrible to have to rub shoulders with the goyim, it was disgusting  etc etc and he traveled to areas where the local Americans hunt and put the animals on the hood of their car ( to bring home to skin and eat) …he said it was disgusting like backwards people the goyim…and on and on and he was telling this story he said that he uses as his opening remarks because he gets laughs.

Then jeremy continues to say that any Rabbi in America that doesnt constantly hit away at American Jews to make aliyah, move to Israel is a sinner, He repeated that a few times and the  congregation and every Jew in America is a sinner. He was clear and emphatic about this, that JEWS IN AMERICA ARE SINNERS AND AT THE TOP OF THE LIST THE RABBIS ARE SINNERS IF they dont constantly try or demand we make aliyah….got it? …and how horrible it was in America with goyim all over the place rubbing shoulders with them……

I called in and got through at the last 5 minutes asking for ‘clarification”  Sad to say, Rabbi Tovia who answerd the phone on air was laughing with jeremy at my question  like grade school kids . I even said ”whats so funny?”. AND SO JEREMY REPEATED THE SAME MANTRA OF HIS. THE RABBIS ARE SINNING ALL OF THEM NONE EXCLUDED AND ALL THE  JEWS.

ALL WEEK I WAS BOILING FROM THAT. AM I  SINNING? I am trying so damned hard to be just a little better..The greatest Rabbis , me, all  Jews are sinning? …WOW. WHAT A STATEMENT TO HEAR ON PUBLIC AIRWAVES TO THOUSANDS OF LISTENERS BOTH JEW AND NON JEW. Icould only think of some of the greatest rabbis in this generation that the jewish world goes by their standard  rulings in Torah, RABBI MOSHE FIENSTIEN A’ H, RABBI PAM  A’H , RABBI AVIGDOR MILLER A’H..and they are sinning? and this young punk from’ psycodelic’  land knows the truth ?…the secrets that our masters are still trying to understand?  Could it be jeremy the rude arrogant insecure punk  knows what our great Rabbis dont ?  Where ever I went, who ever I saw that wore a black hat, any shul I went into, anyone holding  A GEMARA or any sefer IN HIS HAND IN THE NYC SUBWAY, I WOULD WALK UP AND DISCUSS THIS. YES I DO THAT. I DO WALK UP TO STRANGERS AND OPEN CONVERSATIONS. 

 (from ’salant foundation:  ’Therefore, to gain a well-rounded Torah view, it is important to  study, learn, and discuss Torah with other people. Perhaps, they can illuminate areas of Torah that you have not yet mastered.’) (’May we discover new insights from both “teachers and students.” In turn, our knowledge will be enriched; and goodness and joy will fill our hearts’)
THEY (strangers) WERE SHOCKED TO HEAR THE STORY.

THE FOLLOWING WEEK I CALLED IN TO HIS SHOW A LOT EARLIER…..

 TO BE CONTINUED SHORTLY

____________________________

PAST 2 CONTINUED:

JEREMY Upset  Part 2

 The first week I called the Rabbi Tovia show and  asked  jeremy for his meaning of him saying ‘’he had to brush shoulders with goyim and it was disgusting’’, he even told Rabbi Tovia that he tells that story with the dead animal on the car roofs and this is what non jews are all about for laughs to start his  lecture.

.Now the second week I called earlier and jeremey said without skipping a beat in an arrogant tone dismissing me as an irrelevant nothing saying that he didn’t remember saying that..

 “ I told him, “ I have the recording  keyed up from last week, do you want me to play it for you jeremy now or do you want to play the mp3 of your show?” And so jeremey started to raise his pitch to filibuster me, non stop talking fast and strong so that I couldn’t speak, and  I kept saying and raised my pitch  also “let me talk let me talk. This was all live on air

 He started giving me meaningless nonsense talk  at a rapid pace so I couldn’t get to speak. I also kept raising my voice to be heard he was giving me jibberish until  finally I said. ’’hey don’t try to con me I am not a kid that buys your story, I am Rabbi Tovia’s age’’.  I wanted him to know that I ‘ve been around the block buddy…

 Jeremey kept ranting not stopping for breath, filibustering me. As he was giving me his baloney about goyim rubbing shoulders and we must make aliyah and every american Rabbi ,,,,( I hope he doesnt want to  join the mickey mouse club..lolol,, just joking )

 At that point I don’t even know what he was rambling about. bt while he wa rambling and rambling

 I  YELLED IN “ we are taught to separate from goyim but not to ridicule, mock or embarrass goyim, especially publicly.  I DONT HAVE GOY FRIENDS BUT  I  DONT INSULT THEM PUBLICLY JEREMY….
 and so  he kept yelling, not acknowledging what I was saying  and so I kept yelling and repeating ‘’where does it say in Torah that we can publicly insult goyim JEREMY SHOW ME , show me where jeremy show me where we can insult non Jews..?”

 Jeremy kept  yelling and I kept  yelling “let me talk already LET ME TALK ”

I repeated  “Did you say that all Rabbis and Jews in America are sinners”. Jeremy kept  on a non stop rant, filibustering me. I said ‘let me talk ,let me say something’

 Then Jeremy said the

 “ Jews in America are saying America is my new Jerusalem.

And then he said “ you rich Jews in Boro Park Brooklyn living in your mansions……’

I SCREAMED at him …..“ What?  Do you know how many Jews cant afford a Shabbat meal, what is the matter with you,, do you know how many Jews doesn’t have money to buy an egg in the morning’’ WHATS WRONG WITH YOU’’ i REALLY LOST IT THEN…

At that point I was cut off the air…..

I had a  snide remark to his  ‘Jews in America  this is our new Jerusalem” ,its cruel in my opinion  whathe said..and more crue if i repeated the following    what I wanted to say in my best New York accent…..

’’ yo jeremyprobably it was your  grandparents  that said.. Berlin is our new Jerusalem’. is that where you got that slogan from jeremy baby…..

 BUT, I didnt and wouldnt have said that to hurt our survivors…

HOW CAN HE DIG SUCH HARSH EXAMPLES IS MY POINT.

HOW INSECURE IS HE TO SAY … “YOU RICH JEWS’’’

I WONDER IF HE EVER WAS CAUGHT IN THE MESSIANIC XTIAN  OR BUDDIST MOVEMENT TO HAVE SUCH A WARPED MIND IN MY OPINION.

Any self respecting Jew should not tune them  in anymore until they apologize to All those rabbis souls and all the plain jews and all the goyeem..

 Rabbi Tovia sent me an email following the show, as we have exchanged emails before many times.

AND THAT WILL BE PART 3

reading some of the comments not all is a hint of  tovias end product not to mention  the jeremey Kumbaya fan club …..

Following from Jeremy Gimpel:

Jeremy Gimpel // Aug 26, 2009 at 7:33 am

First I want to apologize to the author this blog. A friend of mine sent me a link and until now I had no idea how poorly I handled your call on my show. I never intended to offend you or embarrass you in any way. I would like to clarify a few things. The quotes above are either totally misunderstood or terribly taken out of context and sometimes not true at all.
My show wasn’t offensive to non-Jews. My proof, I didn’t get any emails or calls from any of the thousands of non-Jews who listen to my show complaining. Not one. On the contrary, I received many emails encouraging me to ignore you. I have decided not to ignore you but to respond for a few reasons.
1. I sincerely would like to publically apologize for offending you.
2. I would like to explain what I meant on air.
3. I would like to share my thoughts on some of the issues that were brought up on this blog, especially American Aliyah.
4. Most importantly, I would encourage everyone to be very careful when speaking/writing about other people.
Regarding my trip to America, this is what I meant to convey to you. IT WAS HORRIBLE walking the streets of Manhattan. I felt very lonely there as a Jew. In Israel when I walk down the streets of Jerusalem or wait in line at the post office I am surrounded by family. In America Jews are lonely strangers in a strange land. I did say that in North Carolina the people there have dead animals on the backs of their car (that is culturally shocking for me), I never said that they go home, skin them and eat them. The whole conversation was said is fun tone… Lighten up a little : ).

NOW ON TO MORE ESSITIAL ISSUES: Should American Jews make Aliyah
I believe that Hashem wants to Jewish people to come home to the Land of Israel. I have tried many different approaches at encouraging Aliyah. Since I was being attacked on my own show I guess I went for the more provocative approach. Once again I apologize for offending you.
There are 2 reasons I want to encourage Jews to come home. One, I honestly believe that is the will of Hashem. Two, I fear for their future. I fear for their spiritual future and for their spiritual future. The Jewish people have never had more than a couple of hundred years rest in one country in 2,000 years of exile. I don’t think America is any different.
For those who are trying their best to be better Jews every day and are seeking out what Hashem wants with them and their lives, here is some Torah for thought.
1) “When the L-rd you G-d cuts off the nations whom you are approaching to inherit, you shall expel them and live in the land.” (Deu 12:29) Regarding this verse our sages say, “Living in the Land of Israel equals the combined weight of all the mitzvot in the Torah.” (Sifrei Re’ei, 80)The scholars of the Mishnah establish that not only is living in Israel a Mitzvah, but the concept is so powerful and central to Judaism that it equals all the others in their combined weight.
2) Our sages say further (Tosefta Avodah Zarah, 5:2), A person should live in the Land of Israel, even in a city whose majority is idolaters, and not outside the Land, even in a city that is entirely Jewish. This teaches that living in the land of Israel is of equal weight to all the mitzvoth of the Torah combined.
3) The Talmud likewise says (Ketubot 110b), Whoever lives in the land of Israel is like someone who has a G-d, and whoever lives outside of the land of Israel is like someone who has no G-d, as it says, “To give you the Land of Canaan, to be a G-d to you” (Lev. 25:38).
4) The gemera continues, King David said, “For they have driven me out this day that I should not cling to the inheritance of the L-rd, saying. “God serve other gods” (Sam. I 26:19). Did anyone tell King David to serve other gods? Rather, this teaches that whoever lives outside the Land, it is as though he worships idolatry.
5) Our sages establish that a husband can force his wife to go up to Eretz Yisrael, and a woman can force her husband, and even a slave can force his master. The Ran on Ketubot 110b brings in the name of the Ra’avad that even a Canaanite slave can force his master to bring him up to the land of Israel, since he has obligations like a woman.
6) The Talmud continues, “The Rabbis learned: If the husband says to go up to the land of Israel and wife says not to, we compel her to go up. Otherwise she may be divorced without receiving a Ketubah. If she says to go up and he says not to, we compel him to go up. Otherwise, he must divorce her and give her a ketubah. “ The Mishnah was codified as law for all times by the following poskim. Ramabam (Ishut 13:19-20); Rif (Ketubot 110b); Rosh (Ibid. ch. 13, siman 18); Smag (Negative Precepts, 81); Piskei Harid (Ketubot, Ibid.); Ritva, Ran and Nimukei Yosef (Ibid) and man many more. This is because the mitzvah of livening in the Land of Israel is the a mitzvah for all times!
7) We also find in (Bava Kamma 80b), When one purchases a house in the land of Israel, may we write the deed of purchase even on the Sabbath? Rather… one may tell a non-Jew to write it. And even though telling a non-Jew to perform work forbidden on the Sabbath is itself Rabbinically forbidden, the Rabbis did not apply decrees where settling Eretz Yisrael was at stake.
The Ramabam (Hilchot Shabbat 6:11) ruled this way as well as the Shulchan Aruch (Orach Chayim 306:11). If the mitzvah of living in the land of Israel did not apply today, or even if it were only Rabbinic in force, who would we dare permit this Rabbinically forbidden act on the Sabbath?! Tosafot writes “Specifically for this mitzvah of living in the land of Israel, but for another mitzvah, telling a non-Jew to violate a Torah prohibition is not permitted.”
The Talmud Yerushalmi Sotah 8:4 says, “I might think that someone who has built a new house outside the Land should have to return from the front. It therefore says, “And has not begun to live in it (Deut 20:5). The verse refers to one for whom living in it is a mitzvah, and excludes all others.”
9) “Clear out the land and live in it”, (Numbers 33:53). The Ramban comments, “in my opinion, this constitutes a positive Torah precept. The Torah is commanding them to live in the Land and clear it out, because He gave it to them and they must not despise G-d’s inheritance. … Our sages attached a great weight to the mitzvah of living in the Land and to the prohibition against leaving it, deeming “rebellious” the erson who refuses to accompany his or her spouse to the Land of the Israel.
10) Turn around and head towrd the Amorite highlands… See! I have placed the Land before you. Come, occupy the land that the L-rd swore He would give to your fathers… and to their descendants after them.” (Deut 1: 7-8) The Ramban comments, “It is a mitzvah, not just a promise, as I have explained.
11) Hashem decreed that Israel would never find permanent rest (Manoach) in the exile, and whoever says that they really can find it is an “ignoramus”. In Berachot 61a, R. Nachman calls Samson’s father Manoach an “ignoramus”.
12) Our sages in Mechilta, Bo, 1 compare the exile to a cemetery, for if Israel refuse to dwell in the Land of Israel if the spurn it for the depravity of the exile, they have no future, but suffering, tragedy and annihilation.
Jews may live outside of the Land of Israel, but is that their best life? Are they living their full Jewish potential?
May Hashem guide us on our journeys and bring a speedy redemption swiftly and in our days.
Jeremy Gimpel

 THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT ISSUE IN THE JEWISH WORLD AND NOT TO BE TAKEN LIGHTLY AND THAT IS WHY I AM DEVOTING TIME..AND TO BE AS ACCURATE AS I AM ABLE. I HAVE NOTHING TO GAIN MONETAReLY FROM THIS EXCEPT TO TRY TO SERVE HASHEM WITH TRUTH.

JEREMY APOLOGIZED. Jeremy you have opened the door wider by starting with an apology then clarifing what you have already ‘clarified’ quite clearly when I called your show again, YOU CLARIFIED. Both the clarification and the original statement are alike and so is your  clarification here. The same… no different. I personally was never offended. I am offended for OUR GREAT SAGES AND GREAT JEWS OUTSIDE OF ISRAEL  AND the non Jews. It is they that you have to apologize in  the same arena  as the offense was committed with the same caller namely me on the phone. Thats the halacha.IF YOUR APOLOGY IS SINCERE. In my opinion its not pure

Jeremy being you opened the door again by  re-clarifying your clarification , yet you subtly threatened me, you now caused me great distress and anger,personally this time. I am compelled to answer you , your quotes and your subtly vieled threat I will address.

BUT YISRAEL HA COHEN WROTE A VERY ELOQUENT REPLY TO YOU  .I WILL GIVE HIM THE KAVOD FOR A FEW DAYS.

 ITS BEFORE OUR HOLIEST HOLIDAYS, I WILL NOT BEAR A GRUDGE AGAINST YOU, ‘ I ‘ PERSONALLY WILL FORGIVE YOU  BUT I WILL CERTAINLY ANSWER YOU WITH FULL FORCE AT THE PROPER TIME WHICH IS NOT ANGER,  NOT A REBUKE BUT I WILL OFFER YOU AN EDUCATION IN LIFE…I WILL ACCEPT YOUR APOLOGY AS WEAK AS IT IS KNOWING THAT YOU MUST BE BASICALLY A GOOD PERSON…THERE ARE MANY ‘BUTS’ ATTACHED and know that I do not  NOT CONCEDE TO YOU AS I BELIEVE YOU ARE ENTIRELY INCORRECT AND MISLEADING. maybe misleading your self ASWELL , maybe a lack of knowledge maybe the spotlight has captured you.

I am glad you responded which gives me permission to comment again. I can recommend a very good BET DIN if ever you are in NEW YORK.  Bet Din of America 7 Ave and 27st.  A true Torah bet din if ever you feel the need for one.

 ___________________________________________

EDITORS RESPONSE , THEN FOLLOW  AN  ELOQUENT READERS   RESPONSE BY YISRAEL HA’COHEN

AND NOW THIS IS MY ANSWER TO JEREMY GIMPEL. I TAKE THIS VERY SERIOUS HOW HE SPOKE ON AIR  AGAINST AMERICAN RABBIS JEWS AND NON JEWS. Some Rabbis I have spoken to took it as serious and more.some Rabbis dismissed him as not worthy to answer. I defend TORAH and JEWS  and in this case NON JEWS  so the goyeem do not think that JEWS regularly go around insulting the world.

________________________________________________

 Sept 01, 2009 Latest response to jeremy gimpel:

Jeremy you start off claiming to be an apologetic.

 Your apologies should not be directed to ME  but to ALL the Rabbis and the entire Jewish world and all the goyeem. .I never mentioned “ME”. I mentioned your criticism of ALL THE RABBIS AND JEWS OUTSIDE OF ISRAEL AND NON JEWS.  The pain I mentioned was for the great sages of this generation and their students and all Jews as well as the Goyeem throughout the world that you have insulted .I am defending the GD OF ISRAEL. Jews are not taught to speak like that of other nations. Jews are taught to separate from the goyeem not to mock or insult them.

 WHAT YOU OFFERED AS AN APOLOGY PUBLICLY  Was neither an apology nor publicly. It was merely your JUSTIFICATION for your absurdities. My blog is NOT in front of the same audience as your airwaves. Torah demands you do an apology in front of the same listeners with the offended  present, but no apology is to be found as of yet., it is merely a justification of your words and action..

 . You as an experienced speaker,  certainly  know what you said IS what you meant.You’ve said it plenty of  times. You were quite clear being you justified and clarified yourself after I called on air and  asked for the clarification. You repeated  what you  said previously and  therefore  IT IS  what you meant, and  you repeated the same answer  numerous times. Usually ‘ I ‘  wouldn’t waste MY time to banter with YOURS OR ANYONES  childish games. You are rambling here to me on this so called apology of yours,  as you rambled on the air to me in your fever pitch.

 You clearly did not read what I posted, not in my main comments nor in my responses to my readers. You clearly didn’t read the response by  reader  Yisrael Ha’Cohen .Your  example of ignorance of  Samsons father was by rote without you internalizing what you preached. I digressed didn’t I.. Soooo ,, lets take it piece by piece.

 Everything I said was accurate, listen to your recordings buddy. You were outlandish enough that I didn’t need to embellish anything.

 You were thinking of  ignoring me?  Are you so blinded and can not  see or hear yourself with your  arrogance, insecurity and ego? There lies your problem. Ignoring me and who else do you  ignore?…. but THIS TIME you chose NOT  to ignore me ? LOL If it were true  this time,would be stroke of wisdom on your part .but you ARE ignoring other  lights also  and you also may ignore a Rabbis light that wanted to guide you and you would lose wouldn’t you…. Ignoring  me… is only your defense mechanism to protect yourself   from your own  embarrassment. You are lucky to have me so you can learn. I am willing to devote my time to show you.

Know this jeremy,,, that Rabbis advised me to stay away from you and arutz sheva, so I don’t get tainted  by a seemingly  new slant of arutz sheva. The Rabbis were protecting me from your talk, can you imagine that? I have spoken to a few people that said, even they stopped listening or reading A7 for a long while now. So now I gave you,  tit for tat… Lets play ping pong a little more, shall we? 

As far as your emails. Obviously there was an issue about the way you spoke to me if you had emails. You have emails and not one saying you was wrong? Hard to believe that, from you feeling the need to tell me that you had many emails from non Jews. WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD A NON JEW TELL YOU THAT YOU DID GOOD BY INSULTING THEM… are your listeners  part of the kumbaya beach party who really didnt understand what you said ..Tovias audience is a lot more astute then your audience. I don’t accept what you say.

 I think of all those who will no longer listen and/or  wouldnt waste their time  after the way you  insulted most of your listening audience . NOT ONE  Email ? LOL. Well I guess you have your fans and I have mine amigo.  Most people don’t call you to say ‘’I aint gonna listen to you anymore…LOL.  They will just not listen anymore. Kind of an oxymoron don’t ya think, to call you?

 So lets review,  being you haven’t read my blog other then the headline.

 You haven’t apologized,  you  attempted to justified

 You  attempted to justify to substantiate YOUR  misquotes and misapplications of scripture YOU took  out of context, by the way to win a argument and NOT TO SEARCH FOR TRUTH…,,You again translated Gemara  incorrectly…if a Jew ’IN”  eretz yisrael marries a jewess from outside and if she refuses to make aliyah, is when they should divorce and not if they BOTH  live outside and he wants to make aliyah, according to Gemara not according to what you like to BELIEVE. You are wrong. The heavens cry when a jewish family breaks up…anywhere in  the world. One of the listeners emailed me from tovias show asking me if he should divorce. It is a very dangerous thing what you are saying. Do you also believe the Heavens would be happy about divorces popping up because of your speeches?

AND WHAT DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH WHAT I QUESTIONED ABOUT YOU. ARE YOU TRYING TO WIN A DEBATE BY BRINGING OTHER ISSUES TO CONFUSE THE ISSUE…LOLOLO…THATS WHAT  YOU DO TO YOUR UNLEARNED AUDIENCE…and they clap their hands after your speech and get a ham and egg sandwich anyway. C’ mon man, learn who you are talking to.

 You said in places I am toally wrong but you didnt show or prove where. The shows recordings will prove I am 1001% correct, just not nessasarily in sequence. I think  and write off the top of my head and dont do rewrites , and then as I remember details I write them.You see, I am real from my heart writing with no other goal then KIDDUSH HASHEM. I DONT GET PAID FOR THIS, I DONT HAVE  ADVERTISEMENTS IN THIS BLOG.

SO LETS GET BACK ON COURSE  JEREMY
 Experienced speakers mean what they say and you said it twice to me  if not more,  further clarification as you said you will do in your response,  after I asked you for one on your own show, would be meaningless. It would be accurately  called  A COVERUP..

 YOU subtly threatened me with your #4 remark .What I wrote is what transpired between me and you on internet public radio TO WHICH YOU CUT ME OFF AND i AM RESPONDING AND   I will gladly go before any qualified Orthodox Torah BET DIN and expose your condemnation of ‘’ALL THE RABBIS IN AMERICA, ALL THE K’HAL AND ALL THE GOYEEM., WITH PLEASURE JEREMY WITH ROYAL PLEASURE , IN DEFENSE OF TORAH. Next time you are in America which I am sure will be soon TO SPEAK FOR A FEE PAYMENT IN usa dollars I offer you  here is a most qualified Torah Orthodox  Bet Din

 ‘’BET DIN OF AMERICA”  7AVE   /  26 ST.  NYC..
BRING THE RECORDING OF THE TWO SHOWS.

 I suggest YOU be more careful of how YOU SPEAK OF THE GREATEST MODERN SAGES IN FRONT OF THE WORLD  of goyeem and jews AS YOU DID..

 You  hear from your supporters who know NOT what you speak but will blindly follow you as they did the famous idol jeus. KUMBAYA  KUMBAYA . The astute listener and reader will dismiss you, they will not waste their time tuning in to you any longer.  They will not put credence to your nonsense by answering you.

 If you want to pull quotes, then allow me also:

You, jeremy YOU  who live on holy land are the sinners as so often told  in Tanach,

VAYIKRA 18: 24-30

  • Do not become contaminated  from the other nations I expel before you
  • The Land became contaminated and “ I”  disgorged its inhabitants
  • You shall safeguard my decrees and not commit any of the abominations
  • Let not the land disgorge  you for having contaminated it as it disgorged the nation before you
  • For if anyone commits any of these abominations the people doing so will be cut off from among their people
  • You shall safeguard my decrees and not commit any of the abominations and not contaminate yourself through them

JEREMY, the sins created in 61 yrs of a re-establishment of  Israel on Holy land IS WHERE YOUR ENERGIES SHOULD APPLY. USA SURPASSES Israel in all manners of observance except observing on the Land. We are waiting for Mashiach to call us

Israel surpasses all manners of sin on HOLY LAND  in such a small plot of land in 61 yrs.
The sins that HASHEM CALLED AN ABOMINATION
.
RAMBAM MISHNEH TORAH HILCHOT DE’OT ch6
 “mans tendency is to be influenced by opinions of his peers and companions.  He should maintain  constant contact  and associate with the sages  to learn from their deeds and not from the wicked and the dark so he will not behave like them
WHO JERMY WERE YOUR OLD FRIENDS?
.
 MAHARAL NESIVOT OLAM .
One should love his fellow because both he and his fellow  were created in Hashems image
 
HAKUZARI CH3
PRAYER OF A PIOUS PERSON SHOULD NOT BE BY ROTE LIKE A PARROT BUT BY MUCH THOUGHT .
JEREMY GIMPEL, YOU HAVE DISTORTED TORAH  FOR WHAT EVER REASON I DON’T KNOW, BUT YOU LOSE YOUR SHARE IN THE WORLD TO COME UNLESS YOU MAKE TESHUVAH FROM YOUR MISINTERPRETATIONS AND YOUR INSULTS AS I REPEATED HERE MANY TIMES: If you truly care for TORAH you will apologize properly,
  • To our great Rabbis outside of Israel
  • To their students
  • to fellow Jews 
  •  to non Jews the goyeem of the world.

All the Naveem said that sins in Israel will NOT be tolerated by Hashem, LOOK AT ANY PROPHET AND READ IT. Jeremy. This is a childs game you play, KUMBAYA…, You enjoy the tit for tat games donchya ,  tit for tat, I could write a book in reverse quotes of yours but I WOULD BE PROPER  in my applications of said quotes unlike you.

 JEREMY, THEN YOU SAY IN REFERENCE TO ALIYAH,  “I BELIEVE”. 
And who are you to BELIEVE ?  Where is your semicha from,  where, how many years of intense study did you have to USE YOUR  personal BELIEF that YOU would be recognized as a posek  for every Jew  OVER SUCH ILLUSTRIOUS REBBEIM AS RABBI MOSHE FEINSTEIN.HOW DARE YOU  SUPERCEDE HIS POSEK ON THIS MATTER.
 
Did you not think that perhaps R’ Moshe Fienstien or R’ Avigdor Miller or any of the many other Gedolim of this generation did not ponder everything  and DID NOT RULE, posek, IF  we should make aliyah?

 Did Tosefot live in Israel? NO ! BUT YOU QUOTED HIM.

 It seems everything has to be repeated TWICE  to you.

 From my blog: R’ MOSHE FIENSTIEN / R’ AVIGDOR MILLER / AHAROM KOTLER /HANOCH TELLER / MORDECHAI GIFTER / AVARAHAM PAM / SHMUEL BERENBAUM / Moshe Soloveichik / Menachem Mendel Schneerson / ARYEH KAPLAN / MATISYAHU SALOMON / Yaakov Yitzchok Ruderman / Shmuel Kamenetsky / Yitzchok Hutner /Chaim Michael Dov Weissmandl / Aaron Teitelbaum / Aaron Twerski / Moshe Teitelbaum / Issamar Rosenbaum.

 This is a Partial list , if you like I can post another 200 rabbis in America  far greater, far more respected then you.I can list thousands of middle range and elder rabbis that are far more qualified to rule on this matter of aliyah and YOUR words that  ‘THEY SIN’ and they all follow Rabbi Moshe Fienstien, NOT YOU OR TOVIA OR ARUTZ SHEVA RULINGS.

  Wouldn’t  you think they have pondered everything you  presented?
You have chutzpah, the gall to insult those Rabbis  lives in AMERICA AS A SINNERS LIFE.
Do you have Ruach HaKodesh also?
 I believe that its  Israel is a danger to a JEW…..WHOA did I say that? …. wait a minute ..its not my belief,  it’s the neveem,THE PROPHETS. I don’t have a right to have a believe, to teach,  to over rule our sages.  Yes Israel is a danger to Judaism from all the ills I so often post to A7 blogs Many believe as I do.
WHO ARE THEY THAT BELIEVE AS I DO?
Who are they to say such a thing? 
Why its the prophets of course.
 The prophets again I repeat,
 WARN ISRAEL  *THE WILL BE SPIT OUT BECAUSE OF THEIR SINS.

  Israel converts people like they are grass seeds or rice  mixed with an abundance of  weeds or wheat during Pesach Your leaders   have already polluted Judaism.Israel has messianics like water on HOLY LAND. Prostitution,slave trafficing,drug dens, corruption,false converts fake jewish converts, political pressure on rabbis to forsake their belief in Torah as a trade off for trade offs, gansterism,homosexual parades,gay olympics, rampant crime, terrorism, knife attacks, jews evicted from their homes,,,all this in 61 yrs….and you insult the rabbis in America? 

No, Jeremy  its YOU who must think before you speak or write as our sages say of any leader representing Judaism. Its YOUR  obligation. You may have some good qualities but you have ego and arrogance that you must loose before you teach. What YOU BELIEVE   is of no consequence due to your inexperience  and ignorance of Torah, and when you take quotes out of context and out of meaning and not address what ‘ I ‘  put on the table to question, it is you who MUST WATCH WHAT YOU WRITE OR SAY. This is the game the missionaries use. Taking out of context. And doing that, is a major transgression.It is in essence changing Torah like jeus again.AND ALSO SIDE STEPPING THE ACTUAL ISSUE IN QUESTION.  WHO ARE YOU JEREMY, WHATS YOUR CREDENTIALS TO SPEAK IN SUCH A WAY?

DOING THAT  CAUSES ONE TO LOSE THEIR SHARE IN OLAM HABAH.

 I DON’T FEAR YOU JEREMY, NOT EVEN YOUR VEILED THREAT.

 .I FEAR THE ONE G’D OF EVERYTHING WHO YOU WILL ALSO HAVE TO ANSWER TO… OUR G’D…FOR WHAT  YOU HAVE SAID ABOUT GOYEEM IN PUBLIC . That is a grave sin, CAUSING THEM TO POSSIBLY CURSE The GD of Israel and curse  OUR RABBIS  AND K’HAL.YOU have cursed our rabbis  IN PUBLIC, AND  IN TURN THE RABBIS STUDENTS WHO IN TURN BECAME GREAT RABBIS ON THEIR OWN.

 You have not acted like the ‘light shining bright that other nations would want to follow.

 OF COURSE , EVERYTHING I SAY HERE IS BASED ON TORAH AS  DISCUSSED WITH MANY RABBIS IN NEW YORK OF YOUR TREATMENT AND STATEMENTS TO ME AND OF ALL THE RABBIS AND JEWS AND NON JEWS  OF THE WORLD OUTSIDE ISRAEL, ON AIR TO THE ARUTZ SHEVA LISTENING AUDIENCE . I HAVE A LEGAL RIGHT TO VOICE MY OPINION AND TO ANSWER YOU.

What is so strange is that you felt lost in New York City. There is the famous ‘Spanish Portegues Shul’ An American landmark and THE JEWISH MUSEUM, the Willaimsburg community, Boro Park where the rich Jews live, Flatbush, Midwood t he old once strong Jewish  Washington Heights NYC. 770 eastern parkway headquarters of the lubavitch rebbe now known as chabad. How is it with your wisdom you couldn’t find spiritual warmth anywhere and ended up in LOST in New York City,,, LOST?  Where hundred of  KOSHER GLATT AND ALL OTHER kashrut certified  restaurants. Did I mention the hundreds maybe thousands  and more kosher Torah Orthodox shuls, kolles, midrashim  thousands of  great rabbis to meet. The Ohel of Rabbe Schneerson did you ask about that? Gee Jeremy….HASHEM MADE A GREAT WORLD FOR JEWS…LOOK AT THE GOOD ‘HE’ HAS PROVIDED FOR JEWS IN AMERICA.

 I BELIEVE WE AMERICAN JEWS ARE IN RESERVE, READY TO BE SENT INTO THE GAME IF YOU ISRAELIS FUMBLE THE BALL. You are fumbling arent you…

 Frankly I am greatly disappointed that Tovia Singer giggled  with you  on air, and  you havent  learned  to conduct yourself with dignity in presence of tovias  knowledge.

 Ya see Jeremy you are partly correct in your assessment of being lost in NYC , except it isn’t  NYC that you are lost in, its your own world. I don’t know what monsters you are battling, maybe after a few more exchanges I will figure your demons , but as of now I recommend you back off from what you do. YOU are harming Judaism. In my opinion,I BELIEVE…lol, Ya know whadda ah mean

 Even though a great Rabbi taught me, as I posted in my response to a reader , that we do not judge Judaism by the people….I am sick of arutz sheva  insults and intimidations to American Jews that I may not again visit Israel until as Rambam taught…UNTIL I hear the call and I will know when I hear it. Now  I would think twice even for a holiday,,so you know for sure that a thought of aliyah is certainly out of the question..THINK HOW MANY PEOPLE YOU AND A7 STAFF HAS TURNED PEOPLE OFF FROM A HOLIDAY, AND  by the way, I don’t want to be a ‘BODY’ as tamar yonah said in a blog response.

 JEWS ARE NOT BODIES TO DIE FOR INCOMPETANT LEADERS IN ISRAEL ,AS TAMAR YONAH  TOLD ME,  israel needs bodies, For what?  TO BATTLE THE IDF THAT EVICT THEIR PARENTS TO BE REPLACED BY  ARABS. ISRAEL NEEDS LEADERS AND BELIEF IN GD TO PROTECT THEM ,NOT BELIEF IN POOPS AND ROMAN SOLDIERS AND EURO false gods,NOT EVEN THE USA.

  JEWS4JEUS AND ARABS  HAVE  MORE RIGHTS THEN JEWS FOR ‘ONE TORAH ONE GD’. I WILL NOT GO TO A COUNTRY WITH LEADERS  THAT WILL HOLD THE HANDS OF A POOP WALKING THE KOTEL WHEN THEY DON’T EVEN HOLD THE HANDS OF YOUR CHIEF RABBIS.

 NO PEARLS OF WISDOM COMING FROM YOUR  MOUTH  JEREMY,
no inspiration, no hope no praising of Holy Land
JEREMY,in my opinion….jeremy baby….man did you turn me off with your act, your fascade , You are one transparent dude. I will not even listen to tovia anymore.
Israeli problems at hand:
  • misisonary XTIANS conference will have 3000 attendees, who will also missionaize in the streets of Jerusalem
  • missionary XTIANS radio and TV addressing the russian audience
  • missionary XTIANS churches opening all over Israel
  • false mass conversions to judaism for political world to see and ‘admire?’
  • Jews not permitted to pray on campus,but arabs can
  • Jewish biblical history not taught in school
  • Jewish current  history not taught in school
  • Hatikvah is not said daily in school  as the pledge is said in America daily
AND YOU JEREMY CURSE american jews as sinners because they are in America ?
WHAT ARROGANCE OF YOU AND ALL ARUTZ SHEVA
 KUMBAYA  JEREMY KUMBAYA
 
 MAHARAL NESIVOT OLAM .
One should love his fellow because both he and his fellow  were created in Hashems image.
IF WE SHOULD LOVE OUR FELLOW MAN MEANING ALL THE NATIONS
HOW MUCH MORE SHOULD WE LOVE OUR FELLOW JEW

SHEMA  YISRAEL  AMONEI   ELOKENU AMONIE  ECHAddddDDD

Response to the Jeremy and Rabbi Tuvia Arutz-7 Show

by Yisrael Ha’Cohen

The holy prophet Zachariah received a prophecy while in the land of Israel during the period of the rebuilding of the second Temple in Jerusalem. Zachariah’s prophecy referred to the majority of Jews, who at that time did not heed G-d’s call to return to Jerusalem from the exile, and who rather chose to remain in Babylon. Zachariah, in his prophecy was told that the Jews residing in the exile should be well treated and welcomed with the greatest respect. In addition, all donations sent by those Jewish exiles to Israel should be accepted gladly for all time until the coming of the Messiah.

The Talmud states the rule that any written prophecy found in the books of the prophets apply to every generation until the coming of the Messiah, not only to the particular time that a particular prophecy was delivered. The verse states in Zachariah 6:10: “(You Zachariah) Keep taking from the exile (donations for the Jews of Israel sent by the Babylonian Jews) – from Heldai, Tobijah, and Jedaiah (three prominent Babylonian Jews) and you (Zachariah the prophet) will come on that day to the House of Josiah son of Zephaniah (to welcome and honor him), who came from Babylon (to live in the land of Israel).”

The commentaries explain this verse to mean that the Israeli Jews were required to maintain good relations and give the Babylonian Jews great respect. In addition, the Israeli Jews should value and welcome the donations of Babylonian Jews sent to the Israeli Jews. All this, despite the fact that the Babylonian Jews still did not heed G-d’s call to return to Jerusalem, but however still chose to remain in Babylon. This verse indicates that G-d would have preferred that all Jews return to Israel and not remain in the exile. However, due to the trying circumstances of those times, G-d did not openly condemn those Jews, who happened to be in the majority, who still chose to remain in the exile. The Jews of Babylon ended up remaining in the exile for hundreds of years.

In another prophecy delivered by Zachariah 4:3 the verse says: “Near it (the candelabrum) are two olive trees, one to the right of the bowl (of the candelabrum) and one to its left.” The commentaries say this verse refers to the two great spiritual lights that illuminated the Jews from two lands, Babylon and Israel. This means it is G-d’s plan that until the coming of the Messiah there must always be two great spiritual centers for the Jews one in Israel and the other in the exile.

The world renowned rabbi, Rabbi Moshe Feinstein ZT”L, acknowledged as the greatest expert on Jewish law of the past generation, stated many times in his famous book (Igeress Moshe) that, despite the lofty and great merit of living in the land of Israel, there is no legal obligation in our times for a Jew to live in the Land of Israel until the Messiah comes.

These are just a few of the too numerous sources to list that state that it is not sinful for a Jew to live outside the land of Israel before the coming of the Messiah. It is very sad that someone like Jeremy, no matter how well intentioned, has no right to present his own uninformed opinion as Torah law and the law of our sages as binding when the opposite of what Jeremy is said is the actual law.
Jeremy, as an ignorant Jew has no right or authority to pronounce Torah law, especially in front of a radio audience. I strongly condemn and denounce his actions and I insist that he remove himself from the radio forum and go and study the Torah before he speaks about subjects he knows nothing about.

Jeremy Gimple, by the way he expressed his views, clearly indicate and exhibits his gross ignorance of the Bible and the way of our sages. Jeremy, never bothered to even do the slightest amount of research about this important subject before expressing his views and condemning most of world Jewry before a mixed radio listening audience of thousands. I feel that Jeremy should have a least spent some of his time before going on the air to have looked into the Bible or at least looked into an English translated Artscroll book of the Bible. Jeremy reminds me of a clerk of a fortune 500 company who on the first day on the job wants to become the CEO without having the experience needed to handle the job.

 It is very apparent to me that Jeremy is more interested to talk in front of the microphone and hear his own voice rather than take the time to study and do the necessary research to say something of substance or accuracy. This is typical of what is described in the book of Proverbs that a fool talks many words and drowns out the words of the wise without realizing that is words has absolutely no value. To the contrary, not only is his words of no worth but his words are misleading thus causing great harm. The Rambam said that before one speaks one should think four times before he utters a word and especially before addressing such a large audience.

 I am very annoyed that such a person like Jeremy disseminates foolishness on the radio without having had the required years of study under a competent Rabbi before daring to open his mouth on the air. Only listeners, Jews and Non-Jews alike, who are unfamiliar with the Torah would give Jeremy the respect he craves. However, a slightly more informed audience would be angered by the way Jeremy insults their intelligence by expressing his words based on ignorance.

I am very disappointed at Rabbi Tuvia that he is wasting the precious time of his more astute listeners to pander and babysit with such a total fool as the likes of Jeremy on the air. Jeremy should do himself and the audience a great favor and save himself and Judaism further embarrassment and go a regular Yeshiva and study for many years before returning to the air. The quality of Rabbi Tuvia’s broadcasts has fallen into the abyss because of Jeremy, by going down to the level of total ignorance (Jeremy’s level).

 Tuvia should dump Jeremy and return to his former high quality format, the shows he once had broadcast in years past. Tuvia has done a great disservice to himself and in particular to his audience by denying them his vital high-quality teachings by changing his format to doing shows with a waste-your-time person, such as Jeremy. This is doing great harm. Please! Rabbi Tuvia, I beg you, send Jeremy to a good Yesheva and then invite him back to the air in about fifteen to twenty years when he could not do much harm.

Thank You.

Second Response to the Jeremy and Rabbi Tuvia Arutz-7
by Yisrael Ha’Cohen

First-of-all, I want to say that I have nothing to gain from writing this response. However, the Torah demands that one must do everything in one’s power to defend Judaism against those who try to undermine and threaten it. This is why I wrote this response.

Jeremy responded to Dacon9’s complaints about what he had said on the air in front of an audience of thousands of Jews and non-Jews. Dacon9’s main complaint against Jeremy was that he had insulted all Jews, both from the past and present, who have resided throughout the world, outside the holy land, for centuries.

Jeremy, while broadcasting on the radio, gave his legal pronouncement that Jewish law labels all Jews who reside in the Diaspora as sinners and especially calling the Diaspora rabbis the worst offenders of this law. It is this pronouncement and his strong emphasis relating to this statement that is so objectionable. Jeremy made this comment on the radio and gave his listeners the impression that what he said was the absolute truth and that what he said was the Torah law as was taught by our holy teacher Mosses at Mount Sinai. It was this pronouncement that Dacon9 and many others take great issue with. Not only is Jeremy absolutely wrong but he didn’t even do the slightest amount of research to verify his statement before he said it on the air. It is this statement and the way Jeremy presented it that has earned him the total disdain and condemnation of Dacon9 and all Torah True Jews. Jeremy has insulted and condemned the millions of Jews, including thousands of our most holy and greatest sages throughout the ages, whom they themselves had never lived in the land of Israel. He has condemned all our great sages and all precious Jews as sinners for not having lived in the land of Israel. I will now proceed to explain how ridiculous Jeremy’s assertions are.

(Jeremy! please pay close attention you might actually learn something for once). The way Torah law works is as follows: all of the opinions of Jewish law are based upon both the written and oral Torahs, as well as the teachings of the chain of sages going back directly back to Mosses our teacher. The oral law has very specific and rigid rules on how to interpret both the written and oral laws. Only an expert sage that has been trained and has been mentored for years by his rabbi on how to apply these rules and teachings is capable of deciding Torah law, using this very complex process. A later expert rabbi then studies and evaluates all of the various different opinions stated on any given subject of Jewish law, taught by the thousands of earlier sages, spanning all of the previous centuries starting with Mosses our teacher until the present. All of these opinions are all then gathered, processed, and evaluated by this later expert rabbi. Every rabbi, in order to be qualified to decide Jewish law, has studied and has been trained for many years under the expert tutelage and guidance of their rabbi on how to properly analyze, evaluate, and derive the Torah law based on all of the opinions of the all the thousands of sages of the previous generations going back to Mosses our teacher. These later rabbis often consult other rabbis of their caliber, when necessary, to derive the law. This paragraph gives only a brief overview of how this complex process works. It is no simple task to derive or discover the law. Very few individuals have the ability or are qualified and equipped to do this difficult task including myself. In fact, the Talmud says that only one out of a thousand Torah students has the ability to eventually graduate to be able to decide Torah law. In other words it is the rare few in each generation that have the ability to decide Torah law.

Rabbi Moshe Feinstein ZT’L was and is recognized throughout the world of Torah true Jewry as being the greatest expert on Torah law of the past generation (he passed away in 1986 at 96 years old). He was a Torah giant of the highest caliber. Rabbi Feinstein went through all of the processes mentioned in the previous paragraph. There was no area of Torah law that he did not study and was expert in. I know that I am not competent to decide Torah law. However, I do know, as most Jews know, that because of my inability to decide Torah law I must consult with a competent rabbi who does have this authority and ability. So I looked into the famous sage’s well known book “Iggeress Moshe,” authored by Rabbi Feinstein. This complex book explains and records the decisions of Torah law rendered by Rabbi Feinstein for the span of about fifty years. Rabbi Feinstein’s book contains the questions of Torah law that were sent by the greatest rabbis and laymen of his time, asking Rabbi Feinstein for his Torah decisions and opinions. These vital matters relating to Torah law are all recorded in Rabbi Feinstein’s book. Rabbi Feinstein reveals his incredible vast depth and breadth of knowledge of Torah law in this great eight volume work which is unparalleled in this generation. This work is a masterpiece of Torah law which has no modern day equal. All of today’s great sages and laymen refer to this critical book for reference and guidance concerning Torah law. It is a must for the person interested in deciding Torah law in today’s world.

Rabbi Feinstein addresses the question of living outside the land of Israel in our times in several different places in his book. Rabbi Feinstein, after citing all sorts of reasons and sources, concluded that there is currently no obligation for a Jew in our times to live in the land of Israel. In addition, Rabbi Feinstein emphatically adds that there is absolutely no sin for a Jew to live in the Diaspora in our times. Only when the Messiah will come will all Jews to obligated to live in the land of Israel. This quote is taken from Rabbi Feinstein’s book Iggeress Moshe Volume 3, Even Ha’ezer 1, chapter 120, page 153, found in the last paragraph.

Now let us get back to Jeremy. Jeremy is not a rabbi nor is he trained in any way to decide Torah law. Jeremy has simply stated that he is very concerned about the safety of all Jews that live in the Diaspora. This is based on the well-known anti-Semitism, upheavals, expulsions, and many massacres that have been inflicted upon our people throughout the centuries in the Diaspora. Jeremy exclaimed that this is his only source for deciding that Torah law labels any Jew who doesn’t live in the land of Israel as a sinner and it is every Jew’s duty to immediately move to Israel.

Not only is Jeremy’s opinion dead wrong but it was his demeaning and mocking way in which he presented his unscholarly and uncouth opinion. If he was truly concerned about his fellow Jews living in the Diaspora shouldn’t he have exhibited and delivered his message in a more compassionate and sympathetic way rather than mocking them in the most arrogant and condescending way. Rabbi Moshe Feinstein was well aware of all the sources Jeremy presented, which was obviously copied from some website or English translated book. In addition, Jeremy’s sources do not address the actual question that was introduced by Dacon9 of whether it is lawfully sinful to live in the Diaspora or not. The sources he quoted only talks about the spiritual advantages of living in Israel as opposed to the spiritual disadvantages of not living the land of Israel. No one argues about this point. Everyone agrees that it is far better to live in Israel. Jeremy’s proofs misses the point and does not in any way address the question of whether or not it is sinful to live in the Diaspora. Jeremy did not quote one authoritative rabbi or source to support his erroneous view.

Jeremy’s lengthy rhetoric was a desperate and poor attempt to conceal, confuse and divert the reader from the real issue for which Jeremy has no support. Jeremy lacks all of the qualities required to decide Torah law of which are intellect, knowledge, experience, humility, intellectual honesty, and extensive tutor ledge under an expert rabbi. Guess what Jeremy! The great sage Rabbi Feinstein disagrees with you or perhaps Jeremy would say that he disagrees with Rabbi Feinstein. Since Jeremy is not a rabbi, and recklessly and erroneously decides Torah law on the air before thousands without bothering to do the slightest bit research or preparation leads me to conclude that Jeremy is a lazy person who enjoys basking in his own artificially created self-glory and is a pompous, arrogant ignoramus. This is why I feel Jeremy has no legitimate credibility.

Basically, Jeremy is saying by his actions and statements that he doesn’t trust in the promises of G-d’s Divine protection and deliverance of the Jews living in the Diaspora as written in the prophets. In other words Jeremy is saying that Torah law can be decided or changed based on one’s feelings and insecurities and not making it necessary to base one’s decisions on sources and teachings derived from the Torah and our holy sages. Let’s practice feel-good Judaism. The law should be dictated by what makes one feel good. The Torah forbids us not to add or delete one commandment taught by our teacher Mosses. One who changes even one letter of the Torah denies the entire Torah and has no share in the G-d of Israel. This is what all the other man-made religions have done. Jeremy is in effect introducing his own new innovations to the Torah. By Jeremy’s statements and actions he has disqualified himself as a credible Torah true Jew. He must be denounced by all Torah true Jews around the world. Jeremy is a very reckless and dangerous individual. All of the Torah true people around the world must work join together to have this charlatan removed immediately from the radio. How dare he change the Torah law and pass himself off as an authority to decide Torah law! The Torah commands “remove the evil from within your midst.” Jeremy has got to go and now.

I strongly condemn and suspect Tovia’s motives as well. How could Tovia sit together on the air with Jeremy and not correct him. Instead, Tovia has given his approval to all the vile nonsense of this ignorant egomaniac Jeremy. Tovia should know better. Has Tovia sold out as well? It seems obvious to me that Tovia and Jeremy has spent too much time with too many Christians that they have become influenced by them and are acting and thinking more like Christians than Jews. I ask, has Tovia and Jeremy lost their way? Even the wise king Solomon admitted he made a mistake by dealing with the converted to Judaism foreign wives which they ultimately had a bad effect upon his heart and his spiritual goals. If this is true of the wise King Solomon this certainly applies to Tovia. Unfortunately, the very talented and knowledgeable Tovia seems to be the victim of his too many dealings with too many Christians for too long. Tovia in my opinion has strayed off the proper path and should return to his roots which I am confident that he is fully capable of.

In conclusion, I call for the immediate removal of Jeremy Gimple from all Torah-true radio broadcasting and not to talk about Torah on the air, a subject he is unqualified to discuss on the radio. I call upon Tuvia to correct and retract all the terrible and damaging things Jeremy has said and return to the proper path. There is much more I could say but I have already expressed myself in great length.

Thank You,

Yisrael Ha’Cohen.

submitted 9/20/09

Elad

One time I visited my friend in Jerusalem on Pesach and we were eating cheese pizza at one of the restaurants serving chometz. Then one of those close minded religious Jews told me I shouldn’t be eating chometz on Pesach because the Torah says. I could tell from his accent that he was one of those American Jews living in galus who think they are as good as Israelis. Well I wasn’t about to let this “ignoramus” Jew who lives in galus tell me what to do and so I had to teach him a lesson on Torah. I told him that Ramban says living in the land is equal to all of the 613 mitvot and so I am keeping all the Torah everyday while you aren’t. He just shook his head and walked away but I knew I had won and it was the truth. After all my favorite Zionist Rabbis teach this and I heard it on my favorite radio show with Jeremy Gimpel. They wouldn’t twist the Torah to fit their Zionist agenda now would they?

Well it’s been fun chatting with you but I have to go now and buy tickets to the Madonna concert. She is coming to Israel (to Tel Aviv of course ) and I can’t wait to see my favorite kabala Zionist in person.

Signing off,

You’re typical kibbutz sabra

Elad

PS-Stop being an “ignoramus” move to Israel and leave Galus behind but if you cant move then send us your money.

Kedoshim -  Leviticus 19:1-20:27 

26. And you shall be holy to Me, for I, the Lord, am holy, and I have distinguished you from the peoples, to be Mine.

And I have distinguished you from the peoples, to be Mine:

If you are separated from them [through your observance of Torah], you will be Mine, but if not, you will belong to Nebuchadnezzar and his ilk. Rabbi Eleazar ben Azariah says: How do we know that a person should not say, “I find pork disgusting,” or “It is impossible for me to wear a mixture [of wool and linen],” but rather, one should say, “I indeed wish to, but what can I do-my Father in heaven has imposed these decrees upon me?” Because Scripture says here, “And I have distinguished you from the peoples, to be Mine”-your very distinction from the other peoples must be for My Name, separating yourself from transgression and accepting upon yourself the yoke of the Kingdom of Heaven. — [Torath Kohanim 20:128]
This supports what you said about Jeremy

    It isn’t surprising that Rabbi Tovia Singer has been the arbiter of offense, as he is constantly offending Christians, or goyim if you prefer.

    I think it is hilarious that Jeremy remarks that no goy complained about the show! Have a big goy audience there, do you Jeremy? Yeah, the goy are tuning in to Tovia’s show in droves nowadays, huh? Yikes. Trust me, there are goy out there, like me, that (on occasion) do listen, but for the comedic value only. When Rabbi Singer spouts nonsensical lies like the fact that all Christians are looking for Jesus to return in the year 2000, or that the concept of the Trinity sprung up as a myth, solidified at the Council of Nicaea… well lets just say belly laughs are in order.

    Let me make this clear, I respect, love, revere and admire my Jewish brethren. Perhaps they may have a problem with a goy calling them “brethren”, so I’ll say I respect, love, revere and admire the Jewish people. I am one of the people who believes that U.S. support – unreserved support – of Israel is of the utmost importance.

    I understand how frustrating it must be for Jews to have their religion co-oped by not one, but two religions. This is especially repugnant in the case of Muslims who actually argue that the Jews got it all wrong, all the way back to Abraham. At least Christians believe that the Jews were absolutely correct up until Jesus. Still, I can understand how arrogant we seem, to be saying, “Oh, you had it all right… right up until the Messiah. That part you got wrong.” This is why I tread carefully around Jewish friends, being careful not to spout my limited knowledge – completely lacking in study of the Talmud, Sages, Torah in Hebrew and much more – in their presence. I say all this, because I understand the anger that burns in Rabbi Singer and the (misguided) reasoning being the acerbic polemic of the Jeremy’s of this world.

    Perhaps I’m wrong in weighing in on this topic, out of respect for my Jewish friends. Did you think about that Jeremy? Did you for one moment consider that we goy might have the social skills, the respect to stay out of this argument, despite the fact that you treat goy like dirt and offend us to our very core? The only, ONLY reason I respond now is because you were arrogant enough to presume that, since no goy had expressed their displeasure with your broadcast, there were none that were displeased. In a word… wrong. When exactly, Jeremy, did Israel reach the point where they absolutely have no need for the U.S. or it’s people (particularly it’s Jewish people)?! Talk about biting the hand that feeds – if I may be so bold to put it in those terms.

    Isn’t the primary reason why G-d chose the Jewish people to fulfill the mission of bringing the message of the One, Omnipotent G-d to mankind (paraphrasing Rabbi Dr. Shmuel Himelstein)? Aren’t the faithful in the U.S. continuing to carry out that mission? The temple is still in ruins, are the faithful in Israel any closer to restoring it?

    I’m not sure why I’m commenting, as I am a Xtian that shouldn’t be associated with, according to the writers of this blog. Frankly, with some of the comments in this blog, are you guys any better than Jeremy? Don’t you have a headline that says”DO NOT ASSOCIATE WITH XTIANS” and yet one of your earlier blog entries states, “Defaming an individual is a criminal offense”? You call us Xtians (which is offensive to the nth degree) and you call the pope the “poop”. I’m not Catholic, and I consider the Pope a idol. The Bible says, “And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.”, but calling him the “poop” isn’t that hate, hate and more hate that you say you are tired of? How would you like it if us goy were to call you “Juwz”, or “Jdeeism”? When will the hate stop? When the good people stop doing nothing, acting in league with the offenders.

    While I agree with your assessment of Jeremy Gimpel, I find his view repugnant, I can’t help but find a little irony in your offense at the hands of Tovia (a man you previously revered as a “hero”) considering all the offense I have felt from him over the years misstating, misconstruing, misinterpreting and out-and-out fomenting hate.

    Despite all this, I still love, respect, revere and support the Jewish people. I believe you are G-d’s chosen people and desires that I always respect and support His chosen people. Perhaps one day you’ll return this love and respect.

    I APPRECIATE YOUR COMMENTS AND RESPECT YOU BASED ON YOUR COMMENTS.
    MY commentary in this blog are not towards you
    but to the xtians I meet in paltalk which I learned are a completely different animal.

    TORAH teaches the world that the JEWS are the light unto the nations.Of course not all jews are that light.
    and not all xtians respect that segment of GDS laws and demands to the world.
    Torah teaches JEWS to be cordially respectful to all thenations,
    but not to be doormats to be abused stepped on and intimidated to having to listen
    to the lies deceptions proselytizing to JEWS by xtians.

    THE HOLY TEMPLE WAS IN RUINS BY THE ROMANS WHO ADOPTED AND SPREAD XTIANITY.
    Xtians claimed jeses is the messiah and we lost our TEMPLE.
    XTIANS SAY JESES IS PEACE AND WE WERE DECIMATED BY THE CHURCH SPANISH INQUISITION
    XTIANS SAY TURN THE CHEEK AND LOVE THE ENEMY AND Jews were killed by the churches tool and partner hitler.
    xtians say peace love and rock n roll but killed cultures and people by the millions in the crusades.
    Cordiality does not exist in xtianiatty. Your ultimate goal is to convert the world like the muslims.
    You want Israel for your second coming. yet it factually would be his 3RD coming if he ever does which can never happen.
    Never happen.
    HIs first time was birth, his 2nd time was after he was hung to dry a few people claiim to have seen his
    so you are expecting his 3rd coming..all this without viagra.

    Xtians are under the asumption that cordiality means JEWS are to be silent accepting
    your words as the last words…NO! TORAH doesnt allow us to preach to you but demands we answer you.
    If you were to read the disputations king jaymes demanded a JEWISH ELDERLY RABBI DEBATE A JEWISH HERETIC IN HIS CHURCH…
    If you were to read that alone, you will realize the lie4s deceptions of your gangster jeses paul mathew luke and all his ganster mafia cohorts.
    their were not holy people., they were tax xollectors muscle men gansters.

    Stop reading your xtian re writes and read up on your history,,and you to will urinate on your poop and church.
    You claim to use our TORAH which you call the old testament as the stepping stone. YOU LIE ..YOU ARE PART OF A CONSPIRACY OF LIES.
    YOU VIOLATE THE 2ND COMMANDMENT RIGHHT OFF AND YOU JUSTIFY YOUR LIES BY YOUR TWISTS AND TURNS AND NEW LOGOS FOR JESES.

    IF GD WANTED JESES HE WOULDVE HAVE PICKED A MT. LIKE ‘HE’ DID WITH MOSES AND PROCLAIM AS ‘HE’ DID WITH MOSES THAT ‘HE’ CHOSE MOSES TO LEAD ‘HIS’ PEOPLE.

    I will not PLAY PING PONG WITH YOUR SCRIPTURE VERSUS MY SCRIPTURE AS YOUR SCR5IPTURES ARE NOT DIVINLY DELIVERED OR INSPIRED BY WITNESSES OF PROPHETS WHO PASSED ALL THE CRITERIA OF A PROPHET.
    Your jeses failed in all respects. You say that jese was kind and compassionate and preached AGAINST VIOLENCE.
    reading LUKE alone, i think its 19:26 or 26:19. Later if you insist i will get the accurate verse number. luke said that jeseses said,
    bring my enemies before me and kill them that I may see them die before my eyes.

    Lastly.when messiah comes, no churches no mosques no crosses no idols no jeses no mohameds no sons ghosts
    or any other then ONE WILL be in ISRAEL
    ALL THOSE THAT DID NOT DISMISS ABOVE MENTIONED WILL PERISH. THERE WILL BE
    NO TOLERANCE ON EARTH FOR YOUR CROSS AROUND YOUR NECK NOR YOUR GARGOYLES ON YOUR CHURCHS
    NOR YOUR BELIEF IN JEIUS MARY OR RINGO.

    EVERYTHING A XTIANS THINKS, AND TRANSLATES IS HIGHLY INACCURATE. AND NOTHING MORE THEN PROPGANDA TO PERPETUATE THE LIES OF THE POOP IN ROME.

    Jews came from no where, from the almost oblivion to rebuild an ancient homeland after 2000 yrs of exile
    to a mighty military power ,economic,scientific and technological world power house.
    You claim the TEMPLE IS NOT YET REBUILT BUT jews do not claim that our temple is to be rebuilt this day.
    Yet claiim that being its not yet rebuilt is the rejection by GD which has no judaic validity in your xtian THINKING, WHICH IS PART OF YOUR ARROGANCE PASSING JUDGEMENT ON THE GD OF ISRAEL THAT YOU CLAIM TO SUPPORT AND HIS PEOPLE THAT YOU CLAIM TO ACKNOLWEDGE.

    The fact that we JEWS have come back from every possible xtian adversity to rebuild such a magnificent country, proofs the JEWS WILL SOON BE DESERVING HASHEM GIFT TO US AGAIN, NAMELY OUR HOLY TEMPLE AT GDS TIMING NOT THE XTIANS TIIMING TO VALIDATE TO YOUR CALENDER.

    CHURCH ATTENDANCE IS ALL TIME LOWS, YOUR DONATIONS ARE SO LOW THAT YOUR JESJEUS HAS STEPPED UP THE CAMPAIGN TO GET CONVERTS INORDER TO RAISE MONEY FOR THEIR CHURCH.
    Therefore xtianity is in a absolute decline.

    JEWS DO NOT HAVE TO ACCEPT ANY DOCTRINES OR COMPELLED TO LISTEN TO YOUR RELIGIOUS TALK.
    IT IS EXPRESSLY FORBIDDEN TO JEWS TO LISTEN TO WORDS OF IDOL WORSHIPPERS AND OTHER NATIONS gods.

    TORAH demands JEWS respects all peoples, but not not the religion which is obviously false based on the
    the TORAH FROM THE ONLY ONE GD OF ISRAEL AND NONE OTHER AS OUR PROPHETS TEACH AND AS GD SAID IN 2ND COMMANDMENT
    ”there is no other then ME’
    ‘I’ AM GD ALONE , THERE IS NONE BESIDES ME, NONE WITH ME AND NONE OTHER THEN ‘ME’
