Mercaz HaRav
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from Merkaz Harav)

Mercaz HaRav (Hebrew: מרכז הרב‎, lit. The Rav Centre), also known as Yeshivat Mercaz HaRav, is a Hardal yeshiva situated in Jerusalem, Israel. The yeshiva was founded in 1924 by Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook, [1]and was initially headed by Rabbi Aharon Bronstein, the Ilui of Tebrig. It is commonly regarded as the flagship of national-religious yeshivas.

Mercaz HaRav has become synonymous with the teachings of "Rav Kook." It has played an important role in this field: the educational system of the national-religious camp, from elementary schools to girls’ high schools to hesder yeshivot, is staffed by educators who attended the yeshiva or who look to it for spiritual guidance. It is not a Hesder Yeshiva, students do not do regular military service. Some students do a much- shortened stint in the IDF when they are well into their twenties.

Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook's son, Rabbi Zvi Yehuda Kook, took up the position of Rosh Yeshiva several years after his death. In 1982, after Rabbi Zvi Yehuda Kook died, Rabbi Avraham Shapira took the position and led the institution until his death in 2007. His son, Rabbi Yaakov Shapira, was his successor. Today, the yeshiva has about 500 students, including 200 students in the yeshiva's kollel (post-graduate division).

In 1964 a Yeshiva High-School (ישל"צ, ישיבת ירושלים לצעירים) was founded in close proximity. It has also become a flagship institution.

Yeshiva Torah Temimah is a Haredi yeshiva with branches in Brooklyn, New York and Lakewood, New Jersey that was founded by Rabbi Lipa Margulies.

A May 2006 article in New York magazine claimed that Rabbi Yehuda Kolko, a teacher at the school for 30 years, had been a pedophile.[1] A $20 million civil case was filed against the yeshiva and Rabbi Kolko, alleging that the yeshiva had concealed the Rabbi's actions and had intimidated victims into not reporting the incidents.[2]

Top rabbi: Employing Arabs forbidden
JPost.com Staff , THE JERUSALEM POST Mar. 16, 2008

One of the world's top Torah authorities, Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky spurred controversy on Sunday when he declared that Jews are forbidden from employing Arabs according to halacha, the haredi newspaper, Yom Hadash reported.

"According to halacha, it is forbidden to employ Arabs, especially in yeshivas," Kanievsky, a Lithuanian rabbi who lives Bnei Barak, told the paper. "It poses a mortal danger since we are at war with them."

According to the publication, following the shooting attack at the Mercaz Harav Yeshiva, managers of a Bnei Brak Yeshiva paid a visit to Rav Kanievsky and told him that their institution has employed an Arab for many years. According to the managers, the employee "is an older man
and is not suspected of being involved in any terrorist activity". However, after it became clear that the perpetrator of the attack at the Jerusalem yeshiva was an employee of the institution, they grew fearful and decided to consult with the rabbi on what steps to take, if any. The rabbi responded in a clear and decisive way.

Rav Kanievsky added that he was amazed at the employment of Arabs when there were Jewish
employees to choose from in the unemployment market.

"How will Jews work and support themselves?" he asked.

Rav Kanievsky's decision is in fact an instruction to hundreds of institutions across the nation that employ Arabs. When asked if his statements could be published, the Rabbi responded with "certainly." He added that "non-Jews should not be employed because Jews should be provided with a livelihood, however when there are significant differences in the expenses of employing one and not the other, it is permitted. When referring to employing Arabs - today - g-d forbid, it means placing people in mortal danger."

Pearl Kaufman from Be'er Hagolah said...

I have no respect for black people, never mind a black Rabbi.

“When the broader community thinks of a Jew,” Dinah Levi said, “we don’t fit the profile.” Ms. Levi, 57, raised as a Baptist, is vice president of Beth Shalom, where she said she feels at home with spiritual elements that incorporate the African-American experience. “Since we are a varied people as written in the Torah,” she said, “I think the religion can be embraced by a multitude of people.”

Thank you Harav Chaim Kanievsky, Shlita, for speaking courageously. The Gadol agrees with us.
=========================
“According to Jewish law, it is completely forbidden to hire Arabs, especially in yeshivas,” Rabbi Kanievsky said. “There is a concern of endangering lives.”

The rabbi continued, explaining, “After all, we are at war with them…and are there not Jews that can work and make a living?”

Asked later if his words should be publicized, Rabbi Kanievsky said: “Certainly,” according to the News First Class site.

Rabbi Kanievsky went even further, saying that Jews should refrain from employing any non-Jews, not just Muslim Arabs, and instead grant livelihood to Jews, unless there exists a huge disparity between the labor costs.

The rabbi's family told Arutz-7 that the Yom Chadash report is 100% accurate and explained that "although there can be financial justification for hiring foreign workers, G-d forbid should we hire Arabs. We are at war with them."

Rabbi Kanievsky is one of the most recognized authorities in hareidi-religious society. He is the son of the Steipler Rebbe, Rabbi Yisrael Yaakov Kanievsky, and the son-in-law of Rabbi Yosef Shalom Elyashiv, the leader of Lithuanian Hareidi Jewry.

New York rabbi hands out cash in Sderot

Rabbi Mordechai Aderet hands out NIS 200 bills to market-goers in Qassam-battered town

Zeev Trachtman
Published: 03.16.08, Israel News

Rabbi Mordechai Aderet of Monsey, New York toured Sderot Sunday and handed out NIS 200 (about $58) bills to the residents of the Qassam-Battered city.


Residents flocked to the open-air market after rumors of the benevolent rabbi's gesture spread throughout the southern city.

One of the rabbi's assistants told Ynet the rabbi received word of the city's despair and offered to help the residents out and assist the small business owners who have suffered greatly from the incessant rocket fire.


Young girls in revealing attire who approached the rabbi were given the money but were asked to "dress more modestly and preserve the Jewish tradition."

Following his visit to the market the rabbi later made his way to additional neighborhoods in Sderot and handed out more money to the locals.

Avi Shafran said...

The Rabbi should NOT have given them any money. It sends a bad message that immoral dress is permissible.

The Self-Hating Man and the High-Priced Hooker

Dr. Laura Schlesinger has harmed many lives with her often inane and knee-jerk moralizing. But last week even she outdid herself, as she blamed Elliot Spitzer's long-suffering wife, Silda, for her husband's unfaithfulness with a prostitute. Speaking on The Today show, Dr. Laura opined, "When the wife does not focus in on the needs and the feelings sexually, personally, to make him feel like a man, to make him feel like a success, to make him feel like our hero, he's very susceptible to the charm of some other woman making him feel what he needs. These days, women don't spend a lot of time thinking about how they can give their men what they need." Oh, these poor neglected husbands whose rebellious wives have pushed them into being porn and sex addicts. One can only imagine the unspeakable privations visited upon the likes of Kobe Bryant, forcing them to find tawdry sex with strangers in hotel room, when all they wanted was a small sliver of affection from their distant, narcissistic wives. And we cannot even begin to imagine the unspeakable anguish of someone like Hugh Hefner, forced to roam from body to body and bed to bed, all because no woman has had the basic courtesy to cater to his emotional and sexual needs. To all you women out there I ask, have you no shame, have you no decency?

How sad that in the wake of the Elliot Spitzer tragedy we get Dr. Laura's blame-the-victim drivel rather than an honest discussion on the downfall of the American Male.

Men today are cheating not because their wives do not love them but because they do not love themselves, not because their wives are not caring but because their perforated sense-of-self is immune to affection. Were their wives to shower them with all the love in the world, it would simply seep through the broken shards of their shattered egos. Propelled to succeed by an all-encompassing fear of failure and thrown into a rat race without limit, the broken American male never feels like he is ever good enough and chooses destructive escapes to compensate.

Powerful men like Elliot Spitzer are especially susceptible to the irrational self-hatred and incurable self-loathing that is increasingly affecting the American male. Whatever level of achievement he attains, it is never enough to quiet the inner demons that tell him he is worthless. A culture built on soulless success has raised a generation of men to believe they are anonymous unless they accumulate money or fame, with women being yet another prized possession that accrues to the alpha male.

Trained to feel like they are important only through professional achievement, these men are clueless as to how to be in a relationship. They know how to master rather than relate, how to conquer rather than open up, how to manipulate rather than connect. For the man to whom power is an aphrodisiac, paying a woman for sex becomes an erotic thrill. And men with low self-esteem are profoundly susceptible to women who are not their wives. The man who sees himself as a loser sees the woman dumb enough to marry him as a loser squared. His wife's affection, therefore, cannot make him feel like a winner. It is only the woman to whom he is not married, the one that has not been devalued through a merger with a failure, that can make him feel consequential. And a woman who is so desirable that a night with her can set you back a thousand dollars can make a guy feel like a million bucks.

Bill Clinton may have been the most powerful man in the world. But all that power could not inflate an ego so punctured that it sought significance in a liaison with an all-too-ordinary intern who understood the depth of his need to feel good about himself.

Last week in Los Angeles I debated my dear friend, Dennis Prager, the brilliant radio host and public intellectual, on whether men or women are more responsible for the breakdown of the American family. I argued that broken men are undermining their families, Dennis that the blame was equally shared. Now Dennis has always been a mentor to me. But come on! You have to be blind not to see that men are in crisis. They are three times more likely to cheat on a spouse, eight times more likely to abandon their children (how often do you hear of a dead-beat Mom?), commit 98 percent of all violent crimes, and stand a decent chance of becoming porn addicts. Even if they overcome the porn, they usually end up sports and TV addicts, who spend, on average, three hours per day in front of the boob tube. And that's three hours where they are not helping with the dishes, putting the kids to sleep, or making love to their wives.

Sex for men has become a game of mastery rather than intimacy. A shocking statistic from the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention, published providentially on the same day of the outbreak of the Spitzer scandal, showed that one in four female American teens has an STD. Millions of teenage boys are pushing girls to have sex well before their bodies are ready, and without any kind of protection. The long list of recent sexual scandals among powerful men should likewise spur us to action.

The solution is to set a new definition of success among American men that is dependent not on becoming the competent governor of a state but on becoming the responsible head of a household. The great man is not only he who can balance state budgets, but he who helps his children with their algebra. Not he who hits home runs but he who runs home to be with his family. Not he who wins primaries but he who makes his wife and his children primary.

In this political season, it is in vogue to believe that pulling a lever for a particular candidate will bring us the change we desire. But it is we who have to change. America is not wanting for talented senators and industrious politicians. Rather, it is wanting for loving husbands and devoted fathers.

In the final analysis what the people of New York think of Elliot Spitzer is not nearly as important as what his wife and children think of him. Because, you are not a success in life if the people who mean the most to you think the least of you.

BREAKING: Lawyers Against Kolko Seek Additional Victims; Trial Set For March 31

by Hella Winston
Special to the Jewish Week

Lawyers representing "several men" and "two young boys" who were allegedly sexually molested by a teacher at Yeshiva Torah Temimah in Brooklyn sent a letter March 13 to the families of more than 600 male students who had Rabbi Yehuda Kolko as an instructor.


The letter, from attorneys Jeffrey Herman and Michael Dowd, is "seeking any information that may be helpful to these important cases, including information that staff at Torah Temimah and/or [founder and head of school] Rabbi [Lipa] Margulies was aware of allegations against Rabbi Kolko."


According to the letter, "Two of the boys allege they were abused by Rabbi Kolko while attending the yeshiva during the past few years. Others allege they were abused by Rabbi Kolko at the yeshiva during the 1980s."

/>"[The letter] is part of our investigation," Herman told The Jewish Week Friday. "We are interested in speaking with families whose kids were with Rabbi Kolko at school and may have information that's relevant. We allege that there were complaints going back for decades about Rabbi Kolko.


"My sense is that the community is really coming around," Herman continued, "and that people [in the community] are much more willing to cooperate than they were a few years ago."


In December of 2006, Rabbi Kolko was arrested and indicted by a
Brooklyn grand jury on sexual abuse charges that involved a 6-year-
old boy and a 31-year-old man; the latter alleges he was abused by the rabbi
as a boy and again when he returned to visit the school in 2005.


Rabbi Kolko was arrested again in September 2007 on charges that he
molested a first grader at the school in 2005. Rabbi Kolko remains free on
$60,000 bail.


According to a spokesman for the Brooklyn District Attorney's office, preliminary hearings are set to begin in Rabbi Kolko's criminal case on March 31.


Over the past several years, YTT has been served with four civil lawsuits by five students. The most recent, filed in January 2007 on behalf of an underage "John Doe," alleges that the yeshiva covered up the abuse during the 2004-2005 school year, and seeks $10 million. The yeshiva has denied a cover-up.


"I have been deeply involved in cases involving child sexual abuse for the past 12 years," Dowd, who just joined Herman on the Torah Temimah case, told The Jewish Week Friday. "And whether it be the Boy Scouts or the Catholic Church, whoever does this to children, they have to be stopped, the children have to be made whole and the children have to be protected in the future.


"The only way you defeat evil in this world is by standing up to it," Dowd continued. "We are asking and appealing to the children of the community that have been subjected to this evil to come forward and confront this evil, which is to be condemned in the eyes of men and in the eyes of God. We protect the evildoers when we remain silent. There is no difference whether it be a priest or a Boy Scout leader, it's all wrong."


A message left for the attorney for YTT, Avi Moskowitz, was unreturned.

AVI SHAFRAN AND AGUDAH HAVE NO COMMENT.

PROTECTORS OF EVIL SHOULD ROT BEHIND BARS. GET THAT MARGO? UNDERSTAND THAT SHAFRAN? FASHTEIS COUSIN OF MARGO?
COMPREHNDO MOETZES? HEAR THAT PENETRATION SCHINBERG? SEE THAT CROCODILE TEARS SHLOMO MANDEL? GET IT KETANIM?

It is unfortunate that it has come to this. It is a big darn shame it has come to this. It is very hurtful that it has come to this. But yet, IT HAS COME TO THIS. It has come at the price of a GREAT CHILUL HASHEM. It has come to Hashem having to allow his holy name to be DESECRATED so that his CHILDREN remain SAFE. Shame on all those responsible for enabling and permitting Hashem's name to be desecrated! When you save children you save the future. You save the future you save generations. You save generations you save lives. You save lives you have saved the world!!!!!!!
