Some example fan mail

"I was dismayed to hear that you didn't die from your most recent stroke. You are an awful human being and are going to burn in hell for an eternity for"


  1. le'kovid Harav
    why is this trash posted??

  2. I am Dovid Eidensohn, Daniel's brother. I want to know if I am going to burn in hell for an eternity for being mevazeh Gedolim, because before you say such things you have to know who is a Gadol and who, like Shmuel Kaminetsky, is a Rosh Gomur. Shmuel and his son was heavily involved in getting Tamar Epstein a married woman to leave her husband with no GET and remarry a man and they are together. The Gedolei HaDor attacked him very strongly, and the material was published in Daas Torah. Gedolei HaDor called me up and thanked me for attacking S Kam the rosho gomur, and of course, my brother was heavily involved in this.

    Recently, the Philadelphia Yeshiva sent around a letter from the new "couple" who are two zonose, as if they are honored people. That is S Kaminetsky the rosho gomur, honoring zonose. When you curse somebody and make a mistake, well, I forgot what I wanted to say. May I just add something. I learned under HaGaon Reb Aharon Kotler zt"l, and spent real quality time talking to him constantly in learning. I was in the room with him when he was involved with a great war, and I fight too. HaGaon Reb Moshe Feinstein zt"l wrote a very complimentary letter for my Sefer in Halacha, and he said that he knows me for years as one who plunges into the depth of complicated halacha, the ultimate semicha. The Gaon Rav Yosef Shalom Elyashev zt"l told me that I have the right to run a Beth Din for Gittin using his name. The Gaon Rav Shmuel HaLevi Wosner zt"l gave me an approbation on my sefer in Halacha "Words of truth are reocognized, words written Lishmo."
    I always ran after Gedolim and I know a Gadol. I also know the opposite, because I learned about them from the above Gedolim. Today, there are rabbis with big positions who tell women to force a GET, or leave without a GET, or who have a small knowledge of Halacha but pasken anyway. Go find me a person who has my experience with who is a Gadol before you go around cursing people.

  3. Rav Kook had this kind of harassment, but I suppose it is war out there, criticise some Roshei Yeshiva , and you will get attacked by their followers.

  4. GV
    I don't always agree with you or your methods, but wishing death/hell is indicative of a feeble disgusting mind.
    I hope you feel better.

  5. Foul hatred!!! "I was dismayed to hear that you didn't die from your most recent stroke. You are an awful human being and are going to burn in hell for an eternity for"

    “We bring them into our country on trust that they will become good citizens and many of them may be just that – but then we also get an imam at Davis, in northern California who doesn’t whisper sweet nothings – but openly sermonizes death to all Jews. How many others are like that – we don’t know. But we can guess. That happened a few days ago at the Islamic Center of Davis, where this character preached that we should be “annihilated down to the very last one.” Turns out he has apologized. I’m not buying. Such hatred can’t be taken back and tidied up with a simple apology.”

    See (Psalms 139:21-24):
    “O Lord, You know I hate those who hate You, and loathe Your adversaries. I feel a perfect hatred toward them; I count them my enemies. Examine me, O God, and know my mind; probe me and know my thoughts. See if I have vexatious ways, and guide me in ways everlasting.”

  6. I am interested to know the inside story with the Satmar Rebbe and Rav Aharon Kotler ztl. I don't know how any Haredi rabbi dared to attack him? I understand he was attacked by Lubavitch previous Rebbe, for saving lives on Shabbat, but Satmar I don't know if it was about voting in Israeli elections?

  7. Down in galut USA---feminism gone awry. Mendel Epstein et al and what Rabbi Dovid Eidensohn writes here etc.

    My ex whom I divorced on her initiative 2/17/1993 was deeply involved in the Tamar is free campaign;

    (internet 2012):
    “Supporters of Tamar Epstein, whose ex-husband, Aharon Friedman, refuses to give her a religious divorce, have been pressuring Friedman's boss, U.S. Rep. Dave Camp, R-Michigan, to fire Friedman. They have protested in front of Camp's office, signed a petition at, started a website ( and in February, bombarded Camp's official congressional Facebook page. But Susan Aranoff, director of Agunah International, which supports Jewish women seeking divorces, said social media has little effect because many husbands still are resistant after all the bullets have been fired."
    I haven’t heard, yet, feminists expressing remorse for their heinous activities, other than regret that the FBI caught some of them.

  8. I heard the following saying in the name of Native American wisdom (Navajo, I think, and I'm paraphrasing -- never seen it):

    When a hero undertakes a great journey, crows will assuredly fly across his path and poop on him. His task at that time: Ignore them and keep going.

    So glad to have you back. Been worried about you, & davening for you. I pray & trust this finds you as well as ever. Bivrakhos le'arikhos yamim amu"sh, ...

  9. Rabbi whats the story of your son-in-law Chaim toisig ? Why is it muter to force him to:
    1 give a get
    2 court
    3 rabbanut
    4 away his children
    5 arrest warrent
    6 צו עיכוב

  10. What are you referring to? The Satmar Rebbe was close to Rav Aharon Kotler and gave one of the most powerful hespedim at Rav Aharon's levaya.

  11. Are you confusing Rav Aharon Kotler with Rav Moshe Feinstein, with whom the Satmar Rebbe had halachic disputes?

    Rav Aharon Kotler was attacked by the Lubavitcher Rebbe (RYYS) for saving lives on Shabbat? Highly unlikely that anybody could be faulted for that, or that anybody would protest such actions. As far as I understand, the dispute was regarding the allocation of tzedaka funds being sent to Shanghai,

  12. You claim , the hesped was after his death, not during his life, when these atatcks took place.

  13. nope - I heard this from a couple of people, including one who was present at Rav Aharon's levaya.
    The Rebbe of satmar was giving him a hard time whilst he was living, and a great Hesped once he was gone.

  14. Rav yoel gave everyone a hard time. (Some more than others.)

    Let's just say he didn't have good "bedside manner".
