Avrechim must sign: pledge to abide by Gedolei Yisroel

Isolate the "Etz": avreichim, magidei shiurim, Melamdim and others will be asked to sign - we have no part in those who dispute • Inside: the document

The Litvishe sector split saga continues, as after yeshiva students who voted 'Etz' were thrown out of kollelim, as well as the order of Hagaon R' Chaim Kanievsky to fire melamdim who voted 'Etz', comes the next step, designed to completely differentiate the voters of Etz and subscribers of Hapeles from the Litvishe community.

After a series of consultations, the heads of the large kollelim initiated a version which every avreich will be asked to sign, in which he undertakes not to dispute with Gedolei Yisroel, not to support the controversy, not to bring home the newspaper 'Hapeles' and other writings of mockery of Gedolei Yisroel and to increase respect of Torah.

The text of the letter, published here for the first time, was brought before Gedolei Yisroel, and in order not open to debate who should sign and who not - it was decided that every single avrech will be asked to sign it - and if he did not sign, he would lose his place at the Kollel, Yeshiva or Talmud Torah.
