Beit Shemesh is all about Unity and focusing on the good going on!
People request i respond so bs’d i will ! First is a video from the Tolna Rebbe 8th night Chanukah singing the famous Tehilim from the best song writer ever Dovid Hamelech. About how pleasant it will be when all our brothers/sisters dwell in unity together! This song is the reason i came and live in Jerusalem, Israel and work in Beit Shemesh and Jaffa/Tel Aviv! As Jeff Pulver once said to me ” you have a powerful role of bringing unity! Please G-d may we all see Unity amongst our people and it starts with each of us ignoring the hate from the world and seeing the good within and around! The haters will disappear bkrov/speedily!

Eli Pmusic Time for the 99% to Be Heard- from Lazer Brody via Midnightrabbi inspiresWe here at the Beams and at Emuna Outreach disdain hatred, especially the type of hatred that waves the flag of zealotry and religious fanaticism. We condemn any acts of harassing another human – physically or emotionally – especially in the name of Torah. True Torah is a tree of life, and all its paths are peace. We therefore endorse the following article by Rabbi Yakov Horowitz:
Time for the 99% to Be Heard
By Rabbi Yakov Horowitz
The ongoing violence in Beit Shemesh by hooligans has taken an even uglier turn recently as it is being directed against school-age children and their parents. It is now receiving front-page international coverage due to the involvement of Israeli elected officials at the highest levels.
As the colossal Chilul Hashem and distortion of genuine Torah values is escalating, it is incumbent on decent Jews worldwide to do our part to distance ourselves from this behavior and loudly proclaim that this is not the way of our Torah. It is of paramount importance that we do so not only before the media and the world at large, but also that we explain this to our impressionable children in the starkest of terms. Our work with children and teens over the years has clearly indicated that “Hate Does not Have an Off Button” – meaning that the toxic message of intolerance is one that has long-term harmful effects.
Many people in our community insist, “Everyone understands that these are a small bunch of radicals who do not have the support of any rabbinic leaders.” But that is simply not the message resonating around the world nowadays.
The 1% is getting all the media attention due to the passiveness of the 99%.
Several years ago, readers of this website conducted our own peaceful “hafgana” (protest) when the demonstrations in Eretz Yisroel were spinning out of control, by writing respectful emails to the editors of The Jerusalem Post and Ha’aretz condemning the violence in the clearest terms.
By all accounts, it was very successful as each of the papers received more than 100 emails from Jews worldwide. The Jerusalem Post designated a letters-to-the-editor section, where they printed many of the responses and actually wrote a column noting that there was a grass-roots movement by charedi Jews worldwide condemning the violent behavior.
We respectfully ask that you do the same at this critical time – with the eyes of the world focused on Beit Shemesh. Kindly take a few moments to cut and paste this message or write something along these lines and email them to
“As a Torah Jew, I am deeply distressed by the harassment and violence in Beit Shemesh – all of which is diametrically opposed to the teachings of our Holy Torah. Lest our silence be misconstrued as passive acceptance of this behavior, we condemn it in the strongest terms, as do the vast, overwhelming, majority of Torah Jews worldwide.”
We ask that you show public support for this effort by posting your name and the city where you live as a comment on the bottom of this thread so that members of our community and the media at large can see that this is a broad-based effort.
Thank you very much for your time and may this effort be helpful in restoring k’vod shamayim.
Rabbi Yakov Horowitz
Eli Pmusic i just sent my email to the above 3 email addresses- I’m charedi and work with all kind of jews, i grew up in a top profile family in england, the Goldsmith’s, and have chosen a charedi lifestyle, however, this includes loving all jews/people as the main priority of the unity of Hashem and the focus on good in everytrhing!
