The Rav and Gaon Rabbi Moshe Mordechai Karp the Rav of Kiryat Sefer
one of the successors of Rav Shalom Elyashiv
about Rav Eliezer Berland shlit”a
Written in 2014:
“According to the Holy Torah, and as is known by anyone who learns the “Chofetz Chaim” it is forbidden to have evil thoughts about someone who is known to be a Talmid Chacham and Tzaddik, and not to accept or listen to lashon harah. And certainly, this applies to someone who also has turned the masses to teshuva (see gemara Yoma 87). And even more so in this case as is known that people who hold a grudge against him for monetary reasons and the like are coming against him, as is clear in the “Chofetz Chaim” that the “voice which goes out” is the voice of haters. And anyone who is pulled after this nonsense testifies against himself that he himself is stuck in these impure activities. Woe to the generation that this has happened in their days. This is certainly of the last birur before the coming of Moshiach, that “chutzpah will be common” in public against Hashem and His Torah without fear and without shame. They are the arrogant of the generation. May Hashem remove the evil spirit from among them speedily, and may His Honor be revealed and shine on those who fear His Name and may the verse be fulfilled upon them: “And His loved ones will be strong like the passing sun”.
Writing in pain about the pain of the shechina, the suffering of the talmidi chachamim and tzaddikim, the suffering of Israel. And hoping for the speedy redemption of Hashem, the revelation of Heavenly Honor, and the raising up of the light of Torah and Knesset Yisrael.
