• Pulling Out of Major Competition

    Mordi Harush, a formerly Chareidi from a family in the Sanhedria area of Jerusalem, has become a professional bodybuilder who regularly enters competitions.

    Despite this, he has announced via his Facebook page that he is withdrawing from a competition, which he describes as “my dream”, in order not to be Mechalel Shavuos.

    In his post he writes: Father in Heaven, I am doing this for you. With difficulty, I am withdrawing on my dream and pulling out of the competition in Spain. The reason for this is the competition will take place on Shabbos, which is connected to Shavuos, on that Motzei Shabbos.

    As one who is Shomer Shabbos, I felt my conscience and if I compete on Shabbos and Shavuos, the time of Matan Torah, as I planned to compete in the competition on Shabbos.”

    Harush said, “I started to find all kinds of reasons for myself. I planned to take a hotel close to the competition so I would not have to travel by car on Shabbos, and basically, I was not supposed to violate Shabbos physically while competing in the competition is Chilul Shabbos. But the honor and glory of this competition woke me up…”

    “What stopped me is Shavuos. I will not stand on the stage, during Matan Torah, while the people of Israel received the Torah. Thank you very much, Father in Heaven as you opened my eyes…”

    He stressed: “I know for sure that my salary in the sky will be huge because I gave up something I wanted so much to realize, after many years of hard work.”

    The owner of the Power Gym Gymnasium in Jerusalem, where Harush trains, wrote on Facebook: “Mordi Harush is part of our charming team, but he is also our hero. A huge hero of the entire Jewish people! ”
