הלוואי אויף היינטיקער רביס געזאגט

Sereter Rebbe ב-1948 בתור חיל בפלמ"ח

Speak to the ליצני הדור and to those who dislike or disrespect Seret-Vizhnitz for some reason, and they'll tell you the "dirty little secret" about the Rebbe being a soldier in the Israeli army way back when. I would imagine that even some in Seret גופא are uncomfortable with this tidbit of their history, since they've gone far right in recent years, and a Rebbe a soldier in the Zionist Army doesn't go well with today's ideology. But it turns out that the man who you would think would be embarrassed by it is not and never was! And he always made sure to show them kindness and respect, especially in public amongst his Chassidim! Which is why I say הלוואי אויף היינטיקע רביס געזאגט. Not that they and their many descendants all need to join the army - although that wouldn't be such a terrible either - but they can learn from the Sereter - the last of the old time Rebbes - how to be proud of who you are and where you come from, no matter if "times change." And if duty calls let them join the army with the regular zhlobs as well.

The closer the period was post the Shoah the more genuine ahavas yisrael existed between frum yidden and other yidden. The bonds, yedidus and mutual respect were the norm. It happened again briefly after the 6 day war. Blessed are the R' Shlomo Zalmans, this Rebbe, R' Kahaneman and those like them.

Now we have the pathetic situation, like my parents next door neighbors. The Zeyde fought in the Israeli army, the eyniklech hiss 'Zionism are kofrim' and are rabid members of Toldos Aron.

It's just so sad.

In the old days it was the saddest thing if your eyniklech became chasidim, Now it's becoming a Toldos Aron or c"v satmar!

מוצ"ש שעבר היה בקול ישראל (רשת בית/מלווה מלכה) תוכנית שלמה על חסידים/חרדים בזמן קום המדינה ששרתו באצ"ל ובלח"י עם ראיונות וארחים באולפן. הם הביאו גם הקלטות של כל מיני רבנים שמספרים על כל מיני מבצעים שהשתתפו בהם.
אולי אפשר למצוא הקלטה ברשת.

א געזינטען זומער!
