The Haredi leaderships of some very bad sects in this country are planning a trip to America, all for the sake of protesting army service in Israel
The hassidic leadership in Israel is gearing up for a high profile mission to the US to galvanize support and generate solidarity among haredi Jews against legislation, currently in the Knesset, to draft ultra-Orthodox men into military and civilian service.
The grand rabbis, or admorim, of the largest hassidic dynasties in Israel are all expected to travel to the US on what is being referred to as the Council’s Voyage, including the heads of the Gur, Belz, Viznitz, Sanz, Sadigura and Boyan hassidic courts. [...]
In addition to the admorim, three MKs from the Agudat Yisrael political party, the hassidic half of United Torah Judaism Knesset faction, including Ya’akov Litzman, Meir Porush and Yisrael Eichler are all expected to take part in the trip.
Man, they sure are intent on making every sensible person shake their heads in sadness. They've all attached themselves to poor causes, and the worst thing is that they've still got more than enough of their supporters who see nothing wrong with this kind of belief.
