Hesder Rabbi To Students: Refuse To Serve In IDF

Rabbi Elyakim Levanon of Yeshivat Elon Moreh tells hesder students to evade army service:

For the first time in Israel’s history, a Yeshiva rabbi is explicitly calling on students to evade army draft inRabbi_levanon a bid to avoid taking part in the evacuation of settlements, Israel’s leading newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth reported Sunday.

"If you think the IDF will force you to evict Jews from their homes or to go against your faith – don’t join the army," Rabbi Elyakim Levanon, the head of the Elon Moreh yeshiva, told students, some of whom are already serving in the army, others will soon be enlisted.

Who is Rabbi Levanon?

At the time of the pullout, Rabbi Levanon’s
students led the trend of insubordination in the army, and most
reported they made the decision following consultations with their
yeshiva head. However, Levanon himself insisted he had never instructed
his students how to act, saying he left the decision in their hands,
hoping they would come to the right choice.

Let’s hope Israel comes to the "right choice"– this man is paid by the state. That must stop immediately, as must all state funds to any institution that preaches desertion, insubordination and sedition.

    I admire Rabbi Levanons courage. He knows very well that his job and salary are at risk and still speaks his convictions. A very sincere man.

    Ma(ria?) Rabbi

    yes , yes , rabbi levanon is also a messianist , member of the sanhedrin and all .
    brave ?! maybe , but an honest rabbi does not take a salary from a body that he disparages .
    then he would be in addition to being a brave person , a fraudulent character . I am sure he has a halachic asmakhta for that . yiikes !

    I wonder if Shmary thinks the Nuremberg Nazis were innocent because they were following orders just like he wants this Rabbi and followers to do.???

  6. So every decision by a government that YOU disagree with is automatically equivalent to the Holocaust?

    Please.

    No, I disagree with you labeling a traitor everyone who thinks that unjust laws should be resisted, which is what the Nazis in the docket claimed. They were just following orders so as not to be thought traitors and lined up and shot.

  10. So let that pice of crap Levanon STOP taking money from the government he hates. And let his yeshiva do the same. Then, his call for draft evasion can be dealt with simply, like it would be in any other democracy – a trial and, if found guilty, jail.

    In your twisted mind Disengaging from Gaza equals the Holocaust. That is sick.

    ploni,
    there is more ground of calling you a amalekite , than you comparing the state of israel and it’s institutions with the trash nazi yimach shmam .

    Shmarya, You should be ashamed of yourself calling a Rav in Israel ” a piece of crap” Also learn how to spell.

  16. Let the “good rabbi” be honest and stop taking money from the state he hates. Until then, my accurate description stands.

    Typical Shmarya twisting of what is said. He says that the Rabbi as a servant of the state ought to shut up and not speak whats on his mind. He wants the Rabbi to end up having to use the old “I was only a paid servant of the Govt following orders” which is the excuse all evil people like Shmarya after they have done evil. This Rabbi dosent hate the state only the wretched course some kowtowing politicians have set
    it on.

    Oh and Jath take a Rabies shot before you foam up so much you cant see past your cage bars. I never compared the state to the Nazis but only stated that Shmarya would seem to accept evil done under the guise of “following orders”

    This Rabbi wants to be better then Shmarya and the company he keeps. He will have a clean conciense that he did not just dummy up and look the other way which is what facisists like Shmarya would have him do.

    I can see now why they ran your petulant Jew hating ass out of the community and it obviously has little to do with any failed messiahs as a whole.

  19. Really? Let your rabbi give up his STATE salary and his yeshiva give up its STATE budget.

    Let’s see who is foaming , may be it’s the klavin khatseefin yababam yababam

    …..take a Rabies shot before you foam up so much you cant see past your cage bars. I never compared the state to the Nazis but only stated that Shmarya would seem to accept evil done under the guise of “following orders” ……

    ooooh ya !

    Why dont the Histadrut give up their cronyism of protektzia, and bailing a bunch of shoulda been bankrupt kibbutzim with everyone elses money? Maybe Knewsset members shouldnt have met with terrorists against all laws of the state, why not put them on trial for treason.???

    Maybe thats why Ethiopian Jews cant get a break over there because people like you try to prop up the current system.

    And Jath, Ani mezdayen achotcha yababam yababam.

    Try and process: Every order you personally disagree with is not equal to mass murder and genocide.

    There are two ways to effect change – through non-violence or through violence. In other words, use the domocratic system or rebel against it.

    But because you do not value democracy, and because you desire a theocracy, this is not clear to you.

    “Try and process: Every order you personally disagree with is not equal to mass murder and genocide.”

    Try and connect the dots. Mass Murder and genocide are not the only blatantly immoral deeds people should voice protest over regardless of their Rank, Title or Standing.

    As for a theocracy thats exactly what their is today. The State of Israel worships at the altar of European and American opinion.

    Anybody who disagrees will be beaten, shot, held without charge, held without charge even after a court order to release.

    But being a Arab in the Knesset preaching the destruction of the Knesset is music to the ears of someone like Shmarya and Company, especailly when they are mainly communist or marxist Arabs and dont your dare stifle their opinions.
