Rav Y. Aizik of Slonim

HARAV YEHOSHUA AIZIK OF Slonim would say that certainly Bnei Yisrael committed a grave and terrible sin with the Golden Calf. Nevertheless, they were still on a higher caliber than our generation. At that time, the Jewish People were willing to throw their gold and silver into the fire, just as long as they would have a god.

Today, on the other hand, there are so many willing to abandon G-d, as long as they remain with their money!

Rav Yitzchok Aizik of Slonim was the Rav and Av Beis in of Slonim, and an outspoken misnaged.

Strange that you posted a pictue o R' Mordechai Chaim (Mottel) of Slonim, one of the leaders of the Slonimer Chassidim.

Rav Eizil Charif was a Misnaged Shebimisnagdim, the photograph you show is Rave Mottele Slonimer. He acted as leader of the Slonimr Chassidim in Ertz Yisroel during WWII though 1954. Where is your honesty> How can we trust your journalism, if you post misleading pictures?

There was a gaon R' Moishe Charif 500 years ago who knew that a shoichet in a shtot in Russland was a fraud who didn't know even the most basic hilchos shechita. So he exposed him in front of the gantz kehillah & told them it is time they find a new shoichet.

R' Yudel, are you by chance any relation to this gaon of yore?
