In Utter Disregard, Covid-19, Torah Scrolls and It’s all Upside Down, Thousands of Ultra-Orthodox in Williamsburg

We considered flipping the video so it would not be upside down. But, this way seemed almost more fitting. in the video Aharon Teitelbaum, the Grand Rebbe of the Kiryas Joel Satmar sect is speaking about the importance of the Torah and the new scrolls. There is a great irony there, considering the blatant disregard for the sanctity of human life apparent in this vido.

It is a travesty for Jews everywhere. It is a shame that the leader of one of the wealthiest sects of ultra-orthodoxy and the religious faithful are not taught a more respectful lesson, to sanctify life.

    • And is the point of a Yeshiva that does not teach secular subjects to leave its students entirely in the dark in the civil world. Even Ramban taught that students should learn science and math BEFORE learning the Torah so that the society can be self-sufficient. One day there will either be another great tragedy or the countries wherein these Yeshivas are located will stop funding the society that wants to be insular and that society’s inability to self-sustain will, indeed, be its downfall. This is in essence, in violation of the principles Yeshiva students should be taught. Have you ever asked yourselves why the Grand Rabbis who run the insular communities are themselves so well educated in secular subjects, math, languages, science?
