Married and Navigating Jewish Life

Blogging about marriage and relationships

Excellent post by a fellow blogger concerning this whole concert banning thing – And our opinionated opinion on the whole ban issue

with one comment

Go here to see the post please: Frumhouse   

We just want to comment about something that Frumhouse wrote. Frumhouse wrote how Klal Yisroel has changed and that how we used to see our Rabbis and go to them has changed. 

This is so very true. It used to be you went to the Rav of your shul or community to ask a sheilah, now more and more are turning to see what the Rosh Yeshivas and the ‘Top Ravs’ are saying. It is very hard now a days to find a Rav that is on your level to go and ask a question to and get a response that is appropiate to your level as a Jew.

We are disturbed, urgently so, that such a ban was put into place. This makes it extremely hard to not have to follow; because they are imposing a ban on the entire community due to the Ravs who were asked to sign it. This means that the Jews who are not on that level, who don’t follow such ‘machmir positions’ can no longer enjoy concerts. That is what we feel is completely wrong. There is a reason why people are told ‘go ask the Rav yourself’. What works for one Jews position doesn’t work for everyone.We are saddened that this just continues a threat that the top ‘elite’ of the Jewish World are not remembering that the common Jew is not on their level. We wish they would either stop or go all out. Go ahead and finally ban smoking because it is harmful to ones body, ban the fact that freely drinking can cause issues, begin to start banning communities that don’t enforce Tznius laws more effectively…basically if you are going to ban something for something wrong then start banning the other issues. Don’t pick and choose…that is what Klal Yisroel has been told to do about halacha, isn’t it time enough that the Rabbis follow the same idea and not pick and choose the issues to ban and just do what they feel is right?
