When an angry ignoramus comes out of the closet.
Rabbi Chananya Weitzman (who claims no relation to the antisemite founder of the State of Israel), angrily sounded off regarding Rabbi Kahane’s followers last week because… well… anger is his forte.
But that’s NOT why he’s yet to find a wife, of course.
The blame for that rests squarely with the shidduch world, about which the angry rabbi will proudly tell you that he’s written twelve books and 1400 articles denouncing the process that—somehow—still manages to see thousands tie the knot both here and in chutz l’aretz.
“Anger feels good,” said Weitzman, in a make-believe interview we had with him last week. “It makes me feel powerful, strong—like Shevna… sort of…” before trailing off and searching for the kippa that repeatedly fell off his head during our interview.
Hatred of the Rav’s Followers
When asked about his hatred of Rabbi Meir Kahane’s followers, the full text of which can be found HERE, he waxed philosophical, and said—“listen, there are some people whom you can paint with a broad brush—not everyone, mind you—but certainly Kahanists. They’re really all the same. The ones I know personally—and, of course, my father was a friend of Rav Kahane’s, so I should know—they’re people who all fell out of a cookie cutter. They’re shablonikim. Every man jack of ‘em a carbon copy of the next. Washouts all.”
“Did you ever learn any of Rav Kahane’s books?” we asked him. “Either Ohr Haraayon or Perush HaMaccabi?”
“Nope, don’t have to. I just look at his followers—you know, the ones who all look and act the same and can’t think for themselves and have their own religion and cult and so on… and I know that it would be a waste of my time to open those books—let alone buy them.”
“That’s funny,” we replied. “Because you know that nearly all of what you write is at best a watered-down version of the writings of Rav Meir Kahane, minus the rhetorical flourish that he possessed. And without the wit and humor, to be sure.”
“But how could that be…? I’m funny, too. I’ve published books… I mean, I give them away now—because of all the demand, you know. No sense barring the weak and poor from understanding why I never married. Or why Kahanists are all… generally speaking—”
“What? Mostly happily married and living throughout Israel? Teaching the Rav’s sefarim to the third and fourth generation of dedicated Jews who follow him, and who, incidentally, are the ONLY group taking on the Erev Rav today without fear? And—who are wholly dedicated to making a genuine Kiddush Hashem in the Land of Israel?
“Who, as a group, are leading the fight against the mamlachti trash that rules over us?
“Are you aware, Rabbi Weitzman, that you just bad-mouthed the entire hilltop youth with your zilzul of Rav Kahane?
“Maybe you’re not famliar with the hilltop youth… Not a great number of us out there in Bet Shemesh, we understand. Bet Shemesh… they say it’s a wonderful place for American olim—and very close to Eretz Yisrael, too!
“Lots of your fellow YU grads residing there, too, we’re told.
“YU is famous these days for its “inclusive” approach to Judaism, right? — 'Open Orthodoxy’ is what you YU alumni call it, I believe. A celebration of our diversity, you say. Room for everyone in that big YU tent, including the full BLT rainbow sandwich of perverts and pedophiles. Not that you can’t find a wife because you’re gay or anything. But we imagine your having gone to YU would probably put some women on their guard—you having been educated by the same people who brought us:
the YU Pride Alliance,
married housing for same sex couples,
campus recognition of Gay Pride Month,
transgender males on their way into Stern College and, who knows—maybe even transgender women on their way to a chavruta with your fellow yeshiva bochers at RIETS!
“We won’t delve into a recent rape case that was allegedly swept under the rug when the basketball program was threatened and YU’s national standing as an up-and-coming bastion of athletics was called into question.”
YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT
This is you Chananya Weitzman. You are Yeshiva University. You were educated there. You soaked up its evil. And you’re now locked forever into that cast. You are no different from the worst of what you saw and rubbed shoulders with—you and everyone else who accompanied you on that rainbow walkway.
You are Avi Weiss and Yitz Greenberg and the rest of your YU forebears. Washed up failures as Jews, one and all, OKREI TORAH, bound to be forgotten by future generations of genuinely devout Jews, who will still be learning the Perush HaMacabbi long after the Rabbi Isaac [not Yitzchak] Elchanan Theological Seminary [not Yeshiva] is torn down by mobs of LGBTQ rioters who resent the fact that your tapu-chips kippa is still too large.
We have no agenda here, of course.
We admire a great deal of what Rabbi Weitzman, the homosexual, Open Orthodoxy inclusivist has written.
We’re just stating things as they are.
Think for yourself.
