Document Spreads Online in Name of Renowned Rabbinic Group, Condemning ADL

54

NEW YORK (VINnews) — A document is being spread online and on social media, written on the letterhead of the Central Rabbinical Congress of USA and Canada, aka the Hasachdus HaRabbanim, a Chassidic organization based in Williamsburg, which oversees kashrus and other halacha matters.

The statement discusses the conflict between Elon Musk and the ADL.

VIN News has not been able to verify the authenticity of the document, and if it is genuine, it would be somewhat rare in that it is mainly a political statement, and not directly connected to Halacha, albeit highly relevant to the frum Jewish community and its Hashkafa. (It is also interesting to note that the statement is in English, not Hebrew or Yiddish.)

The statement reads in part:

In response to the current public dispute between the ADL and Elon Musk, we would like to publicize the clear stance of the Torah.

1. The Torah is the Jewish people’s sole authority, and therefore the ADL and such organizations do not speak for the Jewish people. They do what is beneficial for their agenda and not necessarily for the Jews.

2. The Torah approach is summed up in the words of Proverbs 3:17, “Its ways are ways of pleasantness and all its paths are peace.” The Torah teaches us to be gentle and humble people. Boycotts, sanctions and the like are not the way of the Torah; they run against our Jewish character.

3. As American Jews, we are deeply opposed to politicizing anti-Semitism. Also, drawing attention to every minor infraction only gives rise to more hatred…

4. As American Jews, we are obligated by the Torah to be humble, law-abiding citizens with our focus on what is in the best interest of the USA. No foreign country represents us in any way whatsoever.

5. Jews and Judaism are a religion, not a form of nationalism…

We hope for the day when the glory of G-d will be revealed and there will be peace throughout the world.

The Central Rabbinical Congress of USA and Canada

The ADL is one of a number of organizations who’s leadership constantly strive to justify their existence and the fund raising they do to pay themselves the high salaries that they take.
It’s an organization that represents no one but themselves while falsely claiming to represent all of Jewry. Unfortunately reporters, who are too lazy to figure it out and needing a story, go along with their propaganda and present it as representative of all Jews.

The article shown above said:
“Jews and Judaism are a religion, not a form of nationalism…”

If this is true, then why does the Torah command Jews to appoint a king?

If this is true, then why does the Torah refer to Jews as “AMO” “His nation”?

Yes, this is actual Torah (like the rest), so it seems legit.

Questions of authenticity? Here’s a helpful clue:
It’s in English, not Yiddish.

I do not know if this is authentic but the last point of the letter is wrong. To say Jews and Judaism are a religion is the height of ignorance. We are a nation with a common culture, language, and land of origin. The nationalism goals can be debated but the status of “am yisrael” cannot be belittled to just a religion.
