JERUSALEM (VINnews) — Rabbi Chaim Kanievski issued a dramatic new ruling on Monday, calling on the heads of Talmud Torahs and schools to vaccinate children against coronavirus in their school systems. In a letter written in response to a query by educators, Rabbi Kanievski responded that “they should arrange for vaccinations to take place in the Talmud Torahs and children should be vaccinated.”
Last month, Rabbi Chaim said that parents of children over the age of 5 should vaccinate them. This ruling was issued after the heads of the health system and the coronavirus project manager met with Rabbi Chaim and his personal physician Dr. Meshulam Hart.
Professor Zarka, the project manager for coronavirus in Israel, presented to Rabbi Chaim the opinions of leading doctors and the health ministry as well as the FDA regarding the efficacy and safety of vaccinations for young children. Prof. Zarka noted that the rise in infections is primarily among young children who have not been vaccinated against coronavirus.
Dr. Hart explained to Rabbi Chaim the importance of vaccinating children as well as the medical issues and complications occurring among children who had contracted coronavirus.
After Rabbi Chaim heard the doctors and assessed the safety of the vaccination as opposed to possible complications from COVID-19, he ruled that children aged 5 and above should be vaccinated. Rabbi Chaim blessed the children who vaccinate with good health and wished success to the health ministry officials.
As I understand it, due to his age and medical condition, Rav Chaim doesn’t write letters. Neither does he speak in public anything more than a word or two. Additionally he is hard of hearing. At the same time, his attendants are not letting the public to get close to him. Therefore the obvious question: how do we know if Rav Chaim did indeed say anything. The only thing we do know is that his attendants say so. His attendants are NOT Daas Torah, and we have no obligation to obey his attendants.
But wait, what does MBD have to say?
This so called journalism should be ashamed of themselves to mislead the public as to use a good man’s name for their propaganda. The good Rav. Can barely talk or recognize his daughter. This is all Yanki’s doing, his grandson.. All for money… Disgusting… People need to do their own research on this, don’t take my word.. But lots of posts have been circulating. Also, responsable parents, do your research on this so called shots, which have killed and affected many for the past year.
the same day, I came to ask rav shteinman the same question, and the attendants did not let me, but they let my father sit and shmooze about a potential business idea for a good 5 minutes straight.
unfortunately, the surrounding people are interested more in narishkeit than pashut torah
Don’t believe a word. Unless you were at that meeting. I could get r chaim to say anything. It’s easy actually
the control over rav chaim has been going on for years.
I came with a shaila in the gemara, and yanki would not let me ask the question.
anyone else, coming just to complain about their lives or get haskamos for their books, were accepted and given lengthy amounts of time.
Hopefully this won’t be interpreted that children might be ‘vaccinated’ without parental consent.
those in Bnei Brak MUST follow his psak as he is THEIR posek those in Yerushalayim or Hasidim or Dati can rely on their own posekim.
Between this ruling of R Chaim and Trump getting the booster. One thing is clear it’s obvious that the covid anti vaxxers are going into complete meltdown mode.
what a load of rubbish! He didn’t rule anything. Show me a psak halacha, I don’t take medical or spiritual advice from a media report.
And we will hear compliments from the normal dark corners of the frum world.
for the last time, he didn’t “rule” anything. a rumor or a trick question doesn’t qualify as a p’sak halacha.
I follow Daas Torah exactly as the Ruv says to do (as long as I agree with it:-)
He sends the refuah before the maakah
So if the vax is not the refuah then what is, a mere 800,000 deaths or some hocus pocus Dr. in Monsey, or excuse me Mr Ed I need your Roundworm meds!
If you don’t want to take it fine with me, my bubba used to say;
Gai haing dich oaf.
If he would have opposed vaccinations the anti-vaxxers would support daas Torah. In reality they have made up their minds and wouldn’t change no matter what they’re told. The meraglim and Korach come to mind.
It definitely saves time for responsible parents.
Where there is Torah there is chochma, there is Emes, there are no games, there are no agendas, just full of purity.
This could be a major gate between olam hazeh/habah:
Do you put your full emunah in chachmei Yisrael, or do you insist on your own theories?
