Rav Moshe Mordechai Karp, shlita: “Hashem will be on the side of the one who is being persecuted, especially when a wicked person is persecuting a complete Tzaddik, who doesn’t have a speck of sin.”
The Gaon and the Tzaddik Rav Menachem Kluger, shlita, breaks down in tears about the Shechina’s suffering from all of the insults to the Torah, and the disgrace of the true Tzaddikim, that’s going on, that’s being dressed up as though it’s all ‘for the sake of Heaven’.
Rav Kluger says: “Today, there’s a desecration of God’s name occurring beyond anything that’s ever been seen before.”
Friday erev shabbat Parshas Vayetzei where Hashem says in this parsha that: “I will not leave you until I have done all that I said I was going to do for you.” At that time, an awe-inspiring gathering occurred at Kever Rochel to uphold the honor of the Torah, that is being profaned in an unprecedented manner.
This meeting was attended by Rav Moshe Mordechai Karp, shlita, one of the foremost poskim of the generation, from Kiryat Sefer, who came to lead the prayers at Kever Rochel.
After the prayers, all of the avreichim at the Chatzot (Midnight Lamentation) Kollel located at Kever Rachel gathered together to hear some strong words of chizzuk from the Rosh Kollel, the Tzaddik and Gaon Rav Moshe Menachem Kluger, shlita. As Rav Kluger was giving over his talk, he suddenly broke down in tears about the Shechina’s suffering from all of the insults to the Torah, and the disgrace of the true Tzaddikim, that’s going on, that’s being dressed up as though it’s ‘for the sake of Heaven’, as if that could even be possible.
Rav Kluger said: “Today, there’s a desecration of God’s name occurring beyond anything that’s ever been seen before.” He then went on to inform the avreichim at Kever Rochel, in the name of the Gedolei Israel, that they wouldn’t allow anyone studying in any of the kollels associated with Kever Rochel to attempt to harm the Torah’s honor, or the honor of the generation’s true Tzaddikim, in any way.
After Rav Kluger spoke, another huge Gaon, Rav Moshe Mordechai Karp, shlita, gave over his daat Torah that we are all obligated to protest against anyone who speaks against, or harms the honor of the the Gaon and the Tzaddik, Rabbi Eliezer Berland, shlita or his students. These students include many people who sacrifice themselves for the sake of Heaven, they are people who toil in Torah, and who keep the halacha down to the very smallest, exact details.
“Blood is being spilled like water, without any heter (halachic permission) from the Torah, or from a Beit Din,” said Rav Karp. He continued: “And those who are spilling blood like this should remember that Hashem will protect those who are being persecuted, especially when a wicked person is persecuting a complete Tzaddik who doesn’t have a speck of sin.”
Rav Karp cried out from the depths of his heart that: “After we researched and investigated the matter, this is the daat Torah of the Gedolei Israel from every different group and community. Any attempt to go against the words of the Gedolei Israel [i.e. by speaking lashon hara against Rav Berland and his students] is going to fail, because ‘lies can’t stand up’, and the truth is eternal.”
