New Jewish Community Center in Southern Russia

Together with hundreds of community members and distinguished guests, Chief Rabbi of Russia Berel Lazar participated this Sunday in the historical opening ceremony of the new Jewish community center in Krasnodar, Russia.

The new center generously donated by the president of the FJC, Mr. Lev Leviev, contains in addition to a beautiful Synagogue, a gala Hall, a library, a kosher Cafe, a Mikvah and a children and youth educational center.

Addressing the gathering, Rabbi Lazar expressed his belief that the completion of the construction of the JCC will become a turning point in the development of the Jewish community of Krasnodar and that the new Synagogue – as a house of prayer – will bring additional blessing to the entire city.

The opening ceremony combined an additional celebration: the welcoming of a new Torah scroll donated by Nathan Muhailov, a gala concert and prestigious banquet.

    The following is the Satmer Rebbes opinion why Advocating Herzl’s plan to establish a Jewish government without Messiach is in violation with 2 of the 13 principles of the Jewish Religion A) Hashem punishes, B). Waiting for Meshiach,

    1) It is important to remember that Jewish Sovereignty over Eretz Yisroel is CONDITIONAL!!!!

    2) It so happened that in the covenant of Hashem with our father Abraham it was agreed that the punishment for violating the Jewish faith, would be Exile/Gules,

    3) Hashem told us thru our NeVeim that the redemption of the Jewish people will be by Mesihach.

    4) The Amoira Shmuel the biggest Poisek in his Generation says: That Hashems decree on us to WAIT for Meshiach, is meant for Mesihachs SOLE ACTION to Restore A Jewish Sovereignty and to reestablish a Jewish Government ,””All other attributes to Meshiach can be (and are)disputed””,

    5) The Rambam brings down LeHalucha the words of Shmuel as impartial: “Umri Chacumim” and states that whoever does not WAIT for Meshiach (as described by Shmuel) is an Apikoires

    6) The ReShab Writes a warning for our days: “That even if the Hertzel plan would achieve their goal, we must not listen to them in this matter “to make our redemption with our own power”

    7) So any one who is ONLY in the OPINION that Meshiachs JOB may be achieved without him, is JUST
    Not Waiting for Him and is an Apikoires , and The punishment for contemplating the Herzel plan is pre warned,

    To illustrate the above, envision yourself with the following Mushel:

    You see a group of people waiting at a bus stop, it is assumed that these people are waiting for a bus to arrive and to take them to a certain destination,

    A taxi drives by, and yells out: You people are waiting for noting, no bus will arrive and the bus shelter will collapse on your head, hop into my taxi,

    First group of Non Waiters

    A few people pass by and say we have been waiting at another stop, and the bus broke down in front of our nose so we started to walk, join us

    Second group of Non Waiters
    Another group of people come by and say: Come help to push the broken bus

    Third group of Non Waiters

    A cyclist drives by, his Device blaring: we want the bus now we don’t want to wait

    Fourth group of Non Waiters

    A horse and buggy passes by and yells out, I am a professional mechanic, if the bus will ever be fixed you won’t we be able to afford the fare, hop
    unto my buggy,

    Fifth group of Non Waiters

    As the group of Waiters dwindle one Waiter says to the fellow next to him, I know the bus manufacturer and his product, even I will be here by myself I will remain Waiting , the fellow next to him replies , but explain me why did the bus manufacturer tell us to wait for a bus when he also manufactures planes trains, ships, tanks cars, bike, scooters?, and why such lousy shelter?

    The first Waiter replies, I do not understand the logic behind His plan, but HE said when the bus will arrive the plan will be self-understood

    WAITING is a stage of a resolute inactive passive behavior,

    WAITING when decreed by a SUPER BEING, has to become a frame of mind, Like it or not, practical or not,

    Jews have to wait for Meshiach to create a Jewish State, creating a Jewish state without him, one becomes a Non Waiter, which the Rambam calls

    In the beginning of the Common Era the Amoire Shmuel formulated his successful campaign against early Christians and devised a slogan that said “” The ONLY difference between before Meshiach and after Meshiach is HIM establishing of a Jewish Independent Government””” , which Yoshke failed to accomplish ,

    Bavli prods 5 times the soundness and scope of Shmuels slogan by analyzing 5 statements that broadens the scope of Meshiachs Actions/Era , but all 5 statements agree that the reestablishing of a Jewish government is exclusively Meshiachs role for the Jewish people,(V”Yoel Moshe) and the Rambam Codifies this as Halacha by Proclaiming for us today :

    1) Jews wait for Meshiach to be free of non Jewish governments, by Meshiach Himself establishing a Jewish sovereignty,

    2) All other objectives that might result at the era of Meshiach does not necessarily have to happen by Meshiach Personally,

    3) Do Not Talk about the OTHER OBJECTIVES when highlighting Meshiachs Objective (as Shmuel has done in his campaign),

    4) Whoever does not believe the above or does not WAIT for Meshiach to do the creation of the Jewish State is an A P I K O R E S

    Please be open minded by joining the Satmers in prayers, that Hashem should not punish us again, because of those who are actively Non-Waiters

    It’s a symbol of Judaism, rabosai. This house is way out there in Russia, they’re lucky to recognize the magen dovid, much less worry about the Satmar rebbe’s thoughts on zionism…
    We should all be thanking Hashem that there’s anything left in Krasnodar after 70 years of communism!
