Woodcliff Lake, NJ - In an address at tonight’s Agudah Convention at the Woodcliff Lake Hilton in New Jersey, the Novominsker Rebbe, R’ Yaakov Perlow spoke out strongly against those who go to Har Habayis, saying that they are directly responsible for bloodshed in Israel.

Referring to those people as “misguided individuals,” the Novominsker said that going up onto Har Habayis is “a clear violation of the psak of Halacha and gedolei hador.”  Rabbi Perlow also said that these actions incite the Arabs to engage in acts of violence.

As previously reported on VIN News, recent moves by Jews to ascend to Har Habayis have brought increased tensions to the area, including the attempted assassination of Rabbi Yehuda Glick who had been advocating for greater Jewish access to the site.

“Stay off Har Habayis,” warned the Novominsker. “Do not generate redifa on yidden.”

The Novominsker, who is the head of the Agudah’s Moetzes Gedolei Hatorah, advised anyone to is seeking to become closer to the shechina to do so in their own shuls, instead of going to Har Habayis.

What has the Novomisker or Aguda got to do with the situation in Israel?
Perhaps he should have slammed those who cheat, con and steal in their business or from the government - or is that too close to home?
Those who act with Yashrus will become closer to the Shechina.

Question to you:

If there's a "Half of 1 percent chance" that by Jew[s] going up to Har Habayis can result in just one more Jew taken from this world prematurely;

Can you take that slim but "dreadful" chance on your shoulder??? Well......I sure can't!


A gut Voch!

With respect for the Novominsker Rebbe,who lives mechutz la'aretz,
gedolim have gone to Har Habayit from the time of it's destruction.I need not quote the Gemara where R'Akiva was wlking there with other great Tanaim soon after the destruction.And numerous other sources and psaks.
Yerushalayim AND HAR HABAYIT,and the BET HAMIKDASH ARE THE PILLARS OF JUDAISM-YIDDISHKEIT.To cede this area or even one grain of earth to the savages or any one else -that's the sin-the avirah.Jews have the right to go there,daven there -especially for it to be rebuilt.By showing Yishmael and the rest of the world that we are conflicted by the status of Har Habayit that's the reason the terrorists strike.If we were resolute they would crawl back into their tents.Our weakness becomes their strength!
We must demonstrate this to H'.ourselves and the rest of the world !
Eventually, the battle will come; we will prevail.and the Beit Hamikdash will be rebuilt beyameinu.
Come to Eretz Yisrael and hasten the Geulah.Hold your conventions in Yerushalayim and not in New Jersey !

If that really were the case, why don't you hide in a cave, since your mere presence in public irritates many and they go out jew hunting. The average Arab is resentful that there are Jews, regardless of what they do or where they go.....typical drivel from a rabbi that had an obligation and opportunity to stop certain individuals that were child molesters and claimed he was just a local rabbi and couldn't get involved...

I believe there are 2 separate issues which are getting mixed together and confused. The first is whether it's Halachicalky permissible to go to the Bar Habayis. The second is the issue of the savages using Jews going to the Har Habayis as their latest "reason" (excuse/justification ) for their vicious terror against innocent Jews. As for the second, before this issue suddenly became the hottest excuse for their savagery, it was (and still is) the supposed "settlements". What's the excuse for all the terror the savages commit against Jews (and also Americans!) around The world? The excuses are endless,,, "The US didn't pull out of. Iraq quickly enough, the US is siding with Israel, blah blah blah."
When does it end? Appeasement of terrorists never works! They only understand an iron fist!

Finally !
The Agudah is finally realizing what the holy Satmar Rebbe ZT'L was claiming 50-60 years ago, that the Zionists & their lackys the Mizrachi were the rodfim of klall yisroel & have caused & still causing thousands of jews to be killied.

BTW the "origional" Agudah held very similar views regarding the Zionists as the Satmar Rebbe...

Yes before going ballistic, please see the writings of the holy Reb Elchonon Wasserman ZT'L HY'D regarding the Tzionim & how he wrote in the name of the holy Chofetz Chaim ZT'L that the Zionists will bring untold misfortune on Klall Yisroel.

Sorry but maybe let your common sense mind override your emotions: There's a clear difference between hiding in caves or tunnels as opposed to going to Har Habayis which is the most sensitive spot for Arabs and besides, according to most religious authorities it is forbidden for Jews to enter. And to #13 Pray tell me how "child molesters" fit in this conversation???

Think,.......Its not a crime yet!

Hey don't you realize that we all have to act exactly as our forefather Avraham did. Hashem promised the Land to us so it's OURS. We take what's ours and forget about what anyone says.
Oh wait. That was Lot...
Avraham went out of his way not to make the inhabitants of Eretz Canaan feel that he was exercising his claim before the proper time, both in the story with grazing the animals and later when purchasing Maaras Hamachpela.
And eventually Hashem did allow us to settle in Eretz Yisroel. But you know what? We got kicked out. And once again it's not 'ours.' At least not until the RBSO says it is. So perhaps we should not act as if it is?
