Public Letter from Rabbis in regards to the Eurovision

Shavua tov from The Holy Land,

Here you find an English translation of a Public Letter published by great Israel Rabbis yesterday Friday in regards to the Eurovision. Among them:

  • Rav Dov Lior
  • Rav Chaim Steiner
  • Rav Tzvi Tau

“We recently learned that Eurovision, which is currently taking place as a public event in the State of Israel, apart from the serious breach of modesty it entails, is also, unfortunately, a mass desecration of Shabbat.”

“This matter is shocking and deeply hurtful and completely contradicts the principles of our existence as a Jewish state,” the rabbis continued. “Since its establishment, the State of Israel has taken upon itself to preserve the sanctity of the Sabbath and the Jewish character in its public space. We cannot accept a situation in which the most elementary values ​​of our people are trampled on all sides.”

“Such phenomena also seriously affect the very foundations of our existence. The secret of the Jewish people lies in its purity, its holiness and its loyalty to its eternal G-dly values. Even when we were in exile we knew how necessary these values ​​were to maintain our existence, and especially during this period in which we’ve been privileged to gather in our land and build the State of Israel.”

Important Message from the Chief Rabbi of Israel

This is a very important message from the Cheif Rabbi of Israel, Rabbi David Lau in regards to the Eurovision and the desecration of Shabbos. Thousand of people will desecrate Shabbos because of this event. Please read his message and do your utmost to sanctify this Shabbos extra.

My apologies for the poor translation of his message, but I hope you get his important message anyway.

I wish you all a Git Shabbos

Eli

HaRav David Lau

 

The sanctity of Shabbat is the cornerstone of the existence of the Jewish people. Shabbat was strengthened by the sanctity and sanctity of the Sabbath: strengthening the prayers and private and public Torah study, as well as being extravagant in its desecration of what is incompatible with the Sabbath spirit – both adults and children. Those who are able to accept the Sabbath ten minutes earlier at the request of the Chief Rabbi.
May we merit that the light of the Sabbath shine on all the inhabitants of the Holy Land and the Jews in all the Diaspora so that we will no longer be in the dark.
