Students Decry Violence in 770 in the Face of Hanhola Inaction

Shocking and unconscionable video had emerged from within the halls of 770 last week, depicting brutal violence alongside coordinated action disrupting study along with vandalism of Shul property in the effort of preventing the study of the Rebbe’s torah due idealistic disagreements.


A group of individual who oppose the study of the reshimos of the Rebbe took their opposition to new lows, resorting to physical violence and destruction of 770s’ tables and benches in order to disrupt its study.

The controversy surrounds the recent publication of a series of booklets by the Vaad Talmidei Hatmimim, titled “Kesovis Yehovis,” which were published for Bochurim an Anash to prepare for Yud Alef Nissan – the birthday of the Rebbe, and were being studied by the many students in Kevutzeh once a week.

Opposition to the study of reshimos by a number of individuals resulted in shocking violence and destruction last week when they escalated their efforts to stop its study through the use of violence.

Cellphone and security surveillance video revealed shocking scenes with individuals throwing punches, choking and otherwise vandalizing property, all in an effort to stop the study of the booklets.

Apparently this violence and disruption has been going on for weeks, and initially began with ‘silent’ protests with the disrupters shutting off lights during study hours, playing videos of the Rebbe over loudspeakers, then making ‘Adar Dancing’ take place an hour earlier and even writing down the names of those participating in an effort to intimidate.

Things escalated two weeks ago when they effectively shut down the Shiur by turning over the tables and benches and snatching away booklets and destroying them.

Undeterred, Bochurim once again sat down to learn last week, only this time it escalated to shocking violence. Surveillance video showed some throwing haymakers, choking and kicking students who would not surrender their booklets.

In a letter to the Hanholah signed by 111 Bochurim who are students in Kevutzah, they protested their lack of action and demanded something be done and pointed to the Rebbe’s words to Reb Dovid Raskin OBM in which he called those that raise their hands to “ pack their bags and be sent away, be sent to Bnei Brak…”

They also listed the names of twelve individuals that took part in the violence or flipping tables.

Rabbi Bistritsky z”l was murdered by one of their extremists. It can easily happen again with the violence that they’re possed with and the refusal of CH “leaders” to address it. Thank G-d the shliach from Vietnam only had his leg broken from the Tzfatim and not his neck. These people are violent thugs who ought to be pubished by the full extent of the law. Not be protected. It’s sick and getting sicker.

    SEFER CHOFETZ CHAIM — Laws of Loshon Hora 8:8-9
    In this segment, the Chofetz Chaim discusses the issue of loshon hora as it relates to machlokes (dispute). Specifically, he deals with how and when to speak up regarding a controversy with the intention of quelling the dispute and making peace.
    The danger of becoming involved in any dispute is that it is often difficult to know which side is right. What one side sees as a valid complaint, the other may see as nonsense. As the saying goes, “There are two sides to every story.”
    How, then, does one handle this kind of situation? The Chofetz Chaim cautions us, “Ponder the matter carefully, in accordance with the laws of the Torah and [only then] decide which side is the baal machlokes (instigator of strife).” Apparently, the Chofetz Chaim is telling us to consult someone who is learned and, with his guidance, sift slowly and carefully through the information to determine if one of the disputants can be classified as a baal machlokes.This is not an easy task. The Chofetz Chaim says that if, after examining the situation carefully, we cannot determine which side is guilty, then we should refrain from becoming involved.
    If, on the other hand, we have determined that one of the parties is a baal machlokes, then the Torah allows us to publicly voice our condemnation of this person as a means of convincing him to end the dispute. We are speaking specifically of a case where the baal machlokes will most likely back away from the battle when he realizes that public opinion is against him. On the other hand, if this person is impervious to public opinion, then there is no constructive purpose in publicly declaring him a baal machlokes, and doing so would constitute speaking loshon hora.
    The Chofetz Chaim lists three additional prerequisites before one speaks against a baal machlokes:
    1. One must have accurate firsthand information regarding the dispute.
    2. One’s intention must be strictly for a constructive purpose and not because he happens to dislike this person. If a previous animosity exists, one is not allowed to become involved. This point will be clarified later in this volume (see Day 83).
    3. Obviously, if one can speak privately to the baal machlokes and convince him to desist, then that is the path which one is required to take. However, the Chofetz Chaim recognizes that in the case of the baal machlokes, rebuke may be a double-edged sword. By rebuking him in private one may lose his status as an impartial party and become aligned in the instigator’s mind with his enemies. The instigator may then move quickly to thwart any attempts to rebuke him publicly. If this scenario seems to be a real possibility, then one should not attempt to rebuke the baal machlokes in private

Why arent the gabboim and rabbanin doing anything. To stand back and do nothing claiming its lashon harah is not the rebbes way. He screamed in fabrengen against those who hurt others.

    ראיתי המחאה של התמימים הכואבים על מה שקרה בבית מקדשנו בקודש הקדשים שלנו בליל חמישי אור לו’ ניסן, וליבי בוכה על המוחים ועל הפושעים, ואפרט.
    המחאה נעשתה על זה שמבלבלים את לימוד הרשימות בדרכים קיצוניות, וע”ז יצא הקצף.
    רבותי, אתם לא תופסים את הנקודה כאן, זה לא שייך ללימוד לא של הרשימות של כ”ק או של לימוד עניני גאולה ומשיח, וזה גם לא שייך לשיטה זו או אחרת, וגם לא שייך למחונכים של ישיבה זו או אחרת, המדובר הוא על אקט אנטישמי שלא היתה כזאת בישראל שבן ישראל שאמו יהודיה יבצע פעולה כזו להחריב בית כנסת, נקודה.
    באותו יום לקח שייגעץ מטורף בקנדה וזרק אבן על הדלת הזכוכית של בית חב”ד, וכל קנדה הסעירה על אקט האנטישמי של מטורף שחונך ברוח של אנטישמיות, ובכל העיתונות דיברו ע”ז וראיינו את השליח, וכולם פה אחד מחו על פעולה האנטישמית.
    במה שונה מקרה זה ב770 מהפעולה של השייגעץ?
    אני הייתי ב770 באותו ערב כמו שאני בא כל ערב ללמוד שיעור חסידות עם חברותא זה יותר מעשר שנים, וב”ה לאור גידול הישיבה אני מתקשה בכל ערב למצוא מקום בשביל החברותא שלנו, וקצת מפריע לי דבר זה שלקחו מאיתנו האברכים את ביהכנ”ס עבור הישיבה, אבל מה יש לעשות המקום הוא מוגבל ויש ליישב בדוחק, חוץ מזה שזה עזר לי קצת להתקרב להתמימים היקרים פשוט מטעם קירוב המקום הגשמי, ונהי’ מזה קירבה רוחנית וידידותית.
    בדרך כלל אני מוצא מקום בחלק האחורי של 770 ומתיישב שם, באותו ערב ישבתי מאחורה עד שבאו כמה חברה והתחילו לסובב את הספסלים והשולחנות באמרם שיהי’ כאן שיעור, אז כולנו שישבנו בצד האחורי עברנו קדימה לאמצע הביכנ”ס ליד הבימה.
    בינתיים אני שומע קולות המתקרבים לשולחן איפה שאני ועוד תמימים ישבו ולמדו או אפילו דיברו דב”ט, ואני רואה המון רועש ומתקרב לשולחן שעדיין לפנינו ופתאום הם מתחילים להפוך את השולחן עם הספרים ומהפכים את הספסלים עם היושבים עליהם, אז רוב החברה פשוט קמו וברחו משם, וכמה ניסו להתווכח עם הפורעים ללא תועלת, ואחד הבחורים שטעה וניסה בכוח לעצור את הפיכת השולחן, התנפלו עליו והתחילו להרביץ לו מכות רצח.
    אני הרמתי את עיני וראיתי שכל השולחנות מצד מערב עד ליותר מחצי הביכנ”ס הפוכים עם הספסלים והספרים על הרצפה כמו אחר פוגרום ממש, ופה ושם ישנם קבוצות וצעקות, וגם הי’ פינה של מכות.
    ראיתי את הפורעים מתקרבים לשולחן שלי וחשבתי אולי עד כאן, ומה מאוד התאכזבתי לראות שגם השולחן שלי והספסלים התחילו להפוך, וראיתי קבוצה פורעים פשוט עם דם בעיניים, וראיתי שאין כאן מצב אחר חוץ מפיקו”נ באם לא אברח משם, וכך עשיתי. מיד אח”כ גם החשיכו את האורות כדי שחס ושלום אף אחד לא יוכל למצוא פינה אחרת ב770 איפה לנסות ללמוד.
    ואני שואל את עצמי במה שונה מחזה זה מקריסטל נאכט בתרצ”ט בגרמניה? גם שם הנאצים רצו למנוע מיהודים להתפלל בביכנ”ס ומצאו עצה לשרוף את הבתי כנסת, גם כאן הגיעו בריונים ורצו למנוע מיהודים ללמוד ולהתפלל בביכנ”ס של נשיא דורנו ומצאו עצה להפוך את השולחנות ולכבות את האור להחשיך את המקום שלא יוכלו ללמוד.
    שוב אני מתבונן בסיפורים ששמעתי מאבי ומזקני, ומעוד עשיריות חסידים שעברו ושרדו את סטאלין וחבריו היבסקים, שארבו על הבתי כנסיות כדי למצוא את התמימים שישבו ולמדו במחתרת, והיו מתפרצים באמצע הלימוד והרסו את המקום כדי למנוע שלא יוכלו להמשיך ללמוד תורה ברוסיא. ומי שעדיין לא מכיר סיפורים אלה יכול לקרוא את הספר סמרקנד של הרב הלל זלצמן או הספר המאבק והנצחון של הרב אהרן חזן, וקצת יקבל תיאור של מעשי צדקות אלו.
    ואני חושב במה זה שונה מכל הסיפורים ששמענו אודות האינקוויזיציה בספרד לפני יותר מחמש מאות שנה, שגם שם רצו למנוע מיהודים ללמוד תורה, והיו מתפרצים לבתים שחשדו ששם מתקיימים עניני יהדות והחריבו את המקום ואסרו את הדיירים, וכך השיגו את מטרתם.
    ואתבונן בתפלות שלנו “שיבנה בית המקדש” והתפלות של “מפני חטאינו גלינו מארצנו … ואין אנו יכולים לעלות וליראות לפניך בבית מקדשנו”, ואני שואל למה קוננים על ביהמ”ק, ומה עם המיליוני יהודים שנהרגו, האם זה לא העיקר? איך זה שכל התפלות והקינות סובבים את חורבן הבית ולא את שחיטת והריגת מיליוני יהודים? ואני שומע את היפי נפש שצועקים איך משווים מתפרעים אלו שהפכו את ביהכנ”ס של בית רבינו לנאצים, בזמן שהנאצים הרגו ושחטו שש מיליון יהודים? ואני תמה תמה אקרא, האם צריכים להרוג יהודי כדי לקונן על חורבן בית המקדש? והאם חורבן הבית אינו מספיק כדי שנרעיש עולמות? האם הנאצים לא היו אלה ששרפו את הבתי כנסת מבלי שיהרגו יהודים? ומה רציתם שח”ו יהי’ שפיכת דמים, ובאם לא הרי שלא קרה חורבן הבית? האין זה הנקודה העיקרית והמשותפת בין כל הגורמים הנ”ל, מטיטוס עד להשייגעץ בטורונטו או המתפרעים ב770, לחרוב בתי כנסת ולמנוע מבני ישראל ללמוד תורה?
    ומי לא זוכר איך הרבי הגיב כשניסו למנוע מקבוצה של אנ”ש בהשכונה שרצו לקיים אסיפה פוליטית ב770, והרבי הגיב שדבר כזה למנוע מיהודי מליכנס לבית כנסת זה מעשה של הקומוניסטים, והרבי השווה את המונעים מלקיים אסיפה פוליטית, ולא שיעור של לימוד, אלא אסיפה פוליטית, לקומוניסטים!
    ולכן כאשר מנסים למחות על זה שישנם בריונים שרוצים למנוע שיעור ברשימות, או שמנסים לדבק התפרעות זו לקבוצה זו או אחרת, או שרוצים להאשים שיטה זו או אחרת, או שמנסים להאשים ישיבה זו או אחרת, איבדתם את הנקודה, לא יכול להיות כאן מלחמה פוליטית או שיטתית, יש כאן הנהגה אנטישמית פרועה ששייכת רק לנאצים, קומוניסטים ואינקוויזטורים שונאי ישראל משך כל הדורות, ולב כל יהודי חייבת לרעוד על שמועה זו.
    איך יכול יהודי לחשוב על סברא כזו להחריב ביכנ”ס מאיזשהו סיבה בעולם? בן ישראל שנולד לאם יהודיה מוכן להחריב ביכנ”ס? איך לא ירעדו ידיו ורגליו רק על מחשבה כזו, ועאכו”כ לקחת חלק בהנהגה כזו?
    ואיך יכולים אנ”ש בכל העולם, וכל הרבנים, וכל הראשי ישיבות, וכל המשפיעים, וכל חסיד אשר נשמה באפו, לא למחות ולהוקיע הנהגה כזו? איך יכולים ללכת לישון כשיודעים אשר חרב בית מקדשינו ומחריבים אותו כאן ועכשיו, ויד ישראל עשתה כל זאת?
    לאו עכברא גנב אלא חורא גנב לימדנו רבותינו, באם לא תהי’ מחאה המונית של כל או”א מאנ”ש לשבטיהם, ובאם יישאר רק אחד מאנ”ש שלא מחה, הרי יד כולנו במעל, ושלא יגידו שידינו לא שפכו את הדם הזה.
    אידן ברידער אונזער בית המקדש ברענט, באם אינכם יכולים למנוע את זה לפחות תקרעו בגדיכם ותרימו קול נהי ובכי על חורבן בית מקדשנו קודש הקדשים.
    וה’ הטוב ירחם עלינו ועל כל השייכים להרבי בעל יום ההולדת, שנוכל לשיר כי גבר עלינו חסדו בימים אלו ממש, ונאכל שם מן הזבחים ומן הפסחים בפסח זה ממש.

      We need to learn from the mistakes of Rabbi Akiva’s Students. And treat each other with respect.

      The Omer period is when we mourn the deaths of 24,000 students of Rabbi Akiva who died in a plague because, (as the Talmud informs us,) “they did not conduct themselves with respect for each other”;

      (Lag BaOmer is the day on which the plague ended and the dying ceased.)

    Many of us have, or know of, R”L family members that are OTD. Ain bayis asher ain bo mais!

    These bochurim, even the “worst” of them, is INSIDE a shul, wearing a yarmulka and tzitsis and “excited” about chassidishe ideas!

    How many dream that their child should step into a shul? Wear a kipa? Care about the Rebbe’s rishimos?

    They may not come to the right conclusion or actions, but they are INVOLVED in Chassidishe frum inyonim (and not c”v drugs, girls, goyishkeit tumah etc.)

    How many wish their own child who is OTD would behave EXACTLY as on of these precious bochurim, kedoshim u’tehorim?!.

    Get the right perspective!

      How dare you say people whose children are OTD would want thier children to behave this way! Since when is it ok according to torah to beat up fellow jews and stop torah learning?? What have we become for someone to say bad is now good!

    • 92. To: Not Being Frum wrote:

      These are MUCH worse destructive acts than hitting (while having misguided good intentions). Some OTD kids hate anything to do with Judaism. Get tattoos, tumah, drugs and overdoses…B”H these boys are in yeshiva!!!

  • 93. interesting wrote:

    its interesting to notice that these bochurim don’t seem to know that if ….the Rebbe…..would list importance in what will help bring Moshiach more effectively,
    Ahavas Yisroel would be first on the list.
    if they were true Chasidim, they would not fight. They need this fight for some reason, but that is THEIR need, not the requirement of bringing the Geula Shleima. This is just SAD. Pathetic. Nobody wins from this fighting and control. *sigh*.
    whats more, is that it turns other people off to 770 and to frumkeit. some of our teenagers are really turned off. Imagine if you were a teen and seeing this hateful fighting.
    more energy put into fighting. Its horrific that they are doing this in what they think is the spirit of the Rebbe. They could not be more wrong.

    Someone should get these clowns kicked out of the country. Let them go back to france or Israel etc. These guys are bullying ppl in the name of gd, sounds a bit like Al Kaida or ISIS.
    Have every person involved in flipping the table or disturbing the learning, arrested and deported if not from here.
    Judaism has enough to deal with, we don’t need these loony toons adding to the craziness. It’s bad enough that they’ve taken over 770 this behavior is deserving of deportation! Tayareh bridder mir velin zein dir in Jeruaslem when moshiach comes, until then get out of our shuls and beis medrashim!!
    Moshiach now!!

    Imagine if the rebbe had walked in, in the middle of this mess what do you think would happen. Wether or not to learn rshimos before it was printed was a valid argument but now that it’s printed there’s absolutely no reason why not to learn it when you have a group of misguided people who don’t even know what they themselves believe or don’t believe in that’s how you end up with such a situation and all those involved should be stripped naked and publicly shamed

    As long as it’s for כבוד הרבי and they set the Farbrengen table up on shabbos afternoon, make a pathway by davening for the rebbe and sing yechi then i guess it’s ok to totally disrespect the rebbes shul and the place the rebbe said about that it’s the holiest place in all of creation for it’s were the שכינה rests in this generation and being that this generation is the ” last generation of גלות and first generation of גאולה” the redemption will begin from 770 and go together with it to the בית המקדש. On that note imagine if משיח would have come at that moment when these confused souls were completely vandalizing the place.

    This is what happens when the rebbe goes from being the nassi to becoming to quote elkanah shmotkin in the book early years “the life and times of the lubavitcher rebbe”. When people turn the rebbe from a way of life a source of life.. to a life and times you know were screwed and suddenly have a messed up generation when חסידות applied is a חידוש to people you know were screwed meanwhile the entire point of חסידות is and always has been not be a philosophy but rather a WAY of life

    I have no idea whether my thoughts will be published or taken notice of however here goes
    These guys are not USA citizens nor UK citizens or EU citizens they are all Israeli
    They have deferment from military service to learn Torah they have a “Petur”. Havlin saw to all that. Hence they are and should be controlled by the Israeli authorities and this appalling behavior should not be overlooked by said Israeli authorities. However are they different from the “Auerbach” chevra? Not an iota!!! Litvish so called Chassidish no difference they have little education because of the political situation with the coalition in Israel
    It is an Israeli problem and should be addressed by the Israeli government
    When one section of society be it Peleg be it Tfas be it indeed Palestine residents consider themselves free from behavioral conformity in society this is what we get

      The reason the Rebbe left the reshimos is so we could learn them when he was no longer physically with us. They provide hashkafa and hadracha that is not available elsewhere — especially for those who weren’t zocheh to yechidus and dollars.
