Rabbi Yaakov Horowitz needs to stop bashing Charedim

Rabbi Yaakov HorowitzRabbi Yaakov Horowitz is a one man show, he only cares about pushing his own agenda while trampling on our gedolei yisroel and talmidei chachumim. Have you noticed that the only one’s sharing his tweets, blog posts, and rallying cries, are those on the left or even off the derech? Have you noticed that Agudas Yisroel and other Charedi organizations have distanced themselves from him. Enough with the molestation, if you read all of his articles you would think that everyone in the frum community covered up molestation, one would derive that no one cared about the children and that’s simply not the case. If you would read through his anti-frum agenda you would realize that he’s just using sexual molestation as an excuse to bash gedolim.

I have to agree with Daas Torah on this one, he’s definitely a Charedi looking Modern Orthodox guy. In the Modern Orthodox world they don’t have daas torah, they go by the secular levush, the secular minhag, and the secular government. Don’t those Modern Orthodox realize what secular society has done to us over the history of the world? Modern Orthodoxy loves to poke its fingers at the Charedi world, those same people who cry wolf if you generalize anything they love, murderous abortion clinics, gay pride, women rabbis, and so on. Where are the calls of racism when they bash out society and say we don’t treat the children properly.

Without the gedolim, we wouldn’t have anyone with enough Torah under their belt to deal properly with the minor child molestation issue that has been blown out of proportion by the liberal media. Yaakov Horowitz seeks to undermine this and send the Jew hating police into check on every Rebbe accused by some off the derech punk who didn’t appreciate the way the rebbe mocked him for not knowing the aleph beis in kindergarten 23 years ago.

Gedolim are professionally trained in maters of loshon horah, that’s what 99% of molestation cases tend to be anyway. Does the local sheriff know from toeles, recheilus, and motzi shem ra. Does the local prosecutor learn sefer chofetz chaim every day? Do they know about the seriousness of Chillul Hashem? Still, “Rabbi” Yaakov Horoiwtz seeks to send false witnesses to secular Jew haters to sort things out?

Why all of the sudden do we have these people who dress in Charedi clothing to undermine the very society they are trying to be apart. Have you seen that the media suddenly has a fascination with the fringe elements in the Ultra Orthodox community? Does this not bother you Reb Yaakov? Does it not bother you to see false witnesses making claims against some of the best Rebbes and Baalei Chesed of our community? Why do you find it necessary to side with the left in every case? When did Jonathan Sacks become a bigger Talmud Chachum than Malkiel Kotler and Yisroel Belsky? Is it because you’re just a regular old Modern Orthodox guy who wants to dress up like a true Torah Yid and infiltrate our community?

    If only he would admit to this and take off the clothing which makes him look less pious than he is. If only he’d start wearing a kippah sruga and stop trying to bring chareidim up to his level.

      Well hopefully I can stem the tide of false Charedim, I think it’s high time for Eliyahu Fink to start wearing a knitted yarmulke and while we’re at it, I think Slifkin should start teaching at YCT.

      I’m hoping that I could rile people up off of their tucheses, the same way that Rush Limbaugh is such an inspiration for the secular politics.

        That’s right, cram everyone back into their rightful boxes. People think they can climb out of the box Hashem intended for them, if you wear a bekishe you have to be pro-molestation, if you wear a kippa sruga you have the option of being pro or anti.

      It would be better if Rabbi Horrowitz left his frock coat on and the Titelbaums and the Spinka Rebbe took theirs off. Who you calling false chareidi Willis?!

  • Claudia Roberts September 10, 2013, 10:57 AM

    We have no gedolim today THAT’S the problem. And in my experience, the only time frummies move away from a person espousing anything is because the person is 100% correct!!!! So pick your poison, soap box prophets or the ostriches.

    • SK September 10, 2013, 12:42 PM

      We do have gedolim today, they usually are the sons of gedolim. Sadly, it’s more about genes than genius these days. Sometimes I wish my last name were Kotler or Teitelbaum.

      • Claudia Roberts September 10, 2013, 3:56 PM

        Ah yes when sperm meets egg we have auto-gadol. PS you are better off being ploni almoni and speaking out against bushing molestation under the carpet as proof of your tzidkis, or lack there of.

    Seems like we have a competing parody site. You’re going to have to bring your A- game against the competition.

    • Claudia Roberts September 10, 2013, 11:41 AM

      Satire (n) wit sarcsim or irony to expose vice or folly…. As defined by that other adorable tv child star… Webster. … I think?

      • anon109 September 10, 2013, 12:26 PM

        lol. Now look up Poe’s Law. Authorial intent non-withstanding, the piece works pretty well as an effective satire.

        • Claudia Roberts September 10, 2013, 3:52 PM

          Rabbi Horrowitz is my ba’al eitzah, Edger Allan Poe is my Rebbe!

        • Anonymous September 20, 2013, 3:35 AM

          That WAS the authorial intent…. wasn’t it? …Guys?… GUYS???

        No, Gary Coleman on “Diff’rent Strokes”

        • Claudia Roberts September 10, 2013, 4:30 PM

          Already used the diffrnt strokes reference in earlier post.

  • A. Nuran September 10, 2013, 11:13 AM

    Nicely done. Only problem is how many people won’t recognize it as satire

    • Heshy Fried September 10, 2013, 11:15 AM

      just because it’s satire doesn’t mean it’s true, I choose to take it as truth, you as satire.

  • ahron September 10, 2013, 1:20 PM

    While this is not the most coherent post ever, many folks who don’t know how awesome R’ Yakov Horowitz is, may be confused.

  • Anonymous September 10, 2013, 4:12 PM

    he talks like this to cover his own past – look into why Munkatch threw him out – not because of his talk, but because, as Chazal say ?? ????? ????? ???? – very sad to see an innocent man Nechemya Weberman in jail and this monster is free – reminds me of how Korach called Moshe Rabbenu arrogant…

    • Anonymous September 10, 2013, 9:48 PM

      Oy the Weberman debacle, such a baal chesed. Does anyone even realize how much chesed Weberman was responsible for?

  • AC September 10, 2013, 8:46 PM

    Who is this Zev Warshavsky guy and why are you even giving him any credence?

  • Yisroel September 12, 2013, 10:32 AM

    Wow, amazing how something can be written under a huge banner that says “satire” & be taken seriously by so many!
    Personally, I’m on both sides of this issue: I was inappropriately fondled by 2 frum guys growing up (one a Lubavitcher that looked mentally ill or confused, one by a more modern guy a few grades above mine), & a good friend of mine was Kolko-ized & is still single at 50.
    On the other hand, I exposed a fellow (25 years ago) who was going around saying a certain rebbe was molesting kids. He admitted to me the rebbe likely wasn’t but had done something to him he considered very wrong and so “deserved it”! A frum psychologist I’m close to told me how he’d exposed an Italian lady who convinced the kids to testify via videotape their father had molested them – she just wanted him not to have any visitation rights.
    My personal experience with Gedolim is that they get it right more often than you & I do – but there are people who know how to play them, and they’re not infallible like the Pope. Yes, Claudia, there are Gedolim – and many of them are children of other Gedolim too. And yes, some of them have mis-handled some of these situations, often because of the chilul Hashem bind they’re in.
    My personal wish is that all communities would admit that abuse exists in the slime of every single community, no matter how righteous or how “sexually liberated”. Predators exist everywhere though the “engine” in each community that drives the behavior differs – in one, it might be extreme sexual repression, in another, no sexual boundaries.
    Then, the stigma of exposing a predator from your community would diminish, and people wouldn’t say that it “proves” Judaism or Catholicism or atheism or city living is unhealthy or untrue or crawling with sickos.
    Unfortunately now, Horowitz can work to make our community safer, yet get attacked by us & re-tweeted by our enemies. Now, to expose one true child molester may save 100 of our kids, but cause a Chilul Hashem. And now, to warn people that there are rumors about someone may also save 100 kids – or may ruin an innocent person or school or camp or business.
    Right now, we’re still damned if we do, damned if we don’t…

    • Claudia Roberts September 12, 2013, 2:42 PM

      The chilul H-shem bind. Joe Paterno should have used that one. If anyone is being abused is anyway, it should be screamed out loud period. Damn the reprocussions.

  • O September 15, 2013, 7:45 AM

    did YSV throw him out too?? wasnt his school taken away from him by the board?
