Exemplars of the Jewish Faith

It’s nice to know that the Edah HaCharedis has an e-mail address. One can send them comments about their activities. Of course that doesn’t mean they will pay any attention to them or even read them. But at least they give you the address.

Here it is:

How do I know this? It was sent to me by several people - accompanied by some photos presumably published and distributed by the Edah.

The most fascinating photo is the one where you see a caricature of the selection process at a Nazi death camp. Hitler is standing at the gate while he selects who goes left and lives; who goes right and dies. There are signs posted that obviate the actual selection process though. One points right and says Charedim. The other points left and says Chilonim.

Chilonim get to live. Charedim get to die.

Aiding Hitler is a hospital worker - presumably from Hadassah. Next in line standing before them is a 'Yiddishe Mama' - presumably the Meah Shearim mother accused of nearly starving one of her children to death - with two children clinging to her shivering and sweating in fear. Hitler seems to be listening to his ‘advisor’ as he points his long finger to the right.

This - my friends - is what your Edah is doing for you. I strongly urge that you show your support for this lovely organization and send them your dollars right away.
