Uprooting Judaism

Rabbi Avraham Yehoshua Freund,
Rebbe of Nassod, Hungary

“It is not because they are Zionists that they are evildoers. It is because they are evildoers that they are Zionists.”

Rabbi Chaim Soloveitchik,
Rabbi of Brisk, Poland (1853-1918) - the founder of the "yeshiva approach to Talmudic study"

All of their actions since their founding have been against our holy Torah. There is much evil contained in their words and actions.

Rabbi Avigdor Miller,
Famous religious Jewish scholar, educator and author, in Brooklyn, New York (1908-2001)

They are our enemies, these people. They hate Judaism! It’s not that they are merely indifferent to the Torah. No, they hate it! You know that when Sadat came to America, so they served him a kosher meal for Mohammedans. Mohammedans can’t eat some things and they served only a meal that a Mohammedan can eat. But when these people from the Knesses came, they served shrimp! So you see that these people don’t represent us.

Rabbi Yissachar Dov Rokeach
Rebbe of Belza, Poland (1854-1926)

Zionism itself is founded on denial of G-d’s providence, reward and punishment and the coming of the redeemer. Nationalism is built only on the ruins of the holy Torah, belief in G-d, His prophets, and the Talmudic Sages.

Rabbi Shalom Dov Ber Schneersohn,
Rebbe of Lubavitch, Russia (1866-1920)

Since the days of the Tower of Babel, there has been no defilement in the world like the defilement of Zionism.
