A Fool’s Folly

July 17, 2020

אַל־תַּ֣עַן כְּ֖סִיל כְּאִוַּלְתּ֑וֹ פֶּֽן־תִּשְׁוֶה־לּ֥וֹ גַם־אָֽתָּה:

Do not answer a fool according to his folly lest even you become like him.

Mishle (Proverbs) 26:4

A response to a post by a member of our Shiviti Learning Forum on Facebook


I hesitated greatly before approving this post. But since you are not the only one to reach out, I wish to share the following words I have shared with them as well:

I am so sorry you had to come across that video. It is full of such terrible things towards rabbis, many who are upstanding Talmide Chachamim in the Jewish community.

This list has been circulating for about a year now, but the video is new. I am sure you have also seen their other video about me personally a number of years back.

We usually choose not to involve ourselves in their foolishness, instead just committing our energy to teaching more Torah and being there for more people.

Let us focus on educating Am Yisrael, so that they will have their own tools to recognize and reject these perversion of our glorious Torah. Thank you for being a friend and valued member of this forum, which is doing just that.

Wishing you and yours only well,
Yonatan Halevy

PS My dear friends who may choose to comment – let us not give anyone the satisfaction of our attention, nor seeing any of us stoop to their low level. Leave this where it is, and together we will continue to do that which is good and kind in the eyes of HaKadosh Baruch Hu!
