    “Igeres Hasheinis – The Second Letter

    Following our letter, dated a few days ago, on the 20th of Sivan, where

    we wrote about the meddling of those  who separated themselves from the community and those who are (“lo tzaisi”) not obeying the law of Torah. This meddling has harmed the campaign in our community – the Rebbe’s Shechunah – to establish the Torah and set up Yiddishkeit on a solid footing.

    Unfortunately since then, the situation has become even clearer, and in a manner that everyone can see. These individuals have showed an example to unwanted elements from outside of our community, to meddle in the affairs of the community and establish guidelines for residents of the community, against the laws of Torah.

    It is obvious and clear to all who have knowledge of Torah about the severe prohibition to support machlokes against the local rabbanim and Morei DeAsra.

    In the matter at hand: in the letter from the Badatz issued on the 2nd of Iyar, the Rebbe’s clear words were publicized: “it is up to the local Rabbonim who know the conditions of that specific place – to determine what’s the right course of action, to make [an Eiruv] or not.

    As a side point, it should be noted, that it’s already been determined by the sage, Baal Shevet HaLevi, Rabbi Shmuel Wosner OBM, regarding the making of an Eiruv, that one can’t decide from a distance, “and the decision is only in the hands of the Rabbonim of the community.”

    May all heed these words and be mindful etc.

    The following is a brief synopsis of the contents of the footnotes of the letter:

    1. References are made about the uniqueness of 23 Sivan.

    2. Mention is made that the letter was delayed several days with the hope of him doing Teshuvah.

    3. Lengthy halachic sources are quoted about the need to abide by the decision of Morei D’asra, and if one wishes to argue – how to go about it. See the original at length.

    4. Reference is made in relation to a resident from Eretz Yisroel writing on Tuesday Parashas Korach, about the lesson we can derive regarding  our situation from the story of Korach, who was a descendant of Shevet HaLevi, and supported Machlokes. A reference is made to the harsh words in this matter from the tzadik of Tzanz relating to the portion of Chumash of Tuesday Parashas Korach. The Rabbanim conclude with blessing of revealed good.
