Rabbi Asher Weiss, head of the Beit Midrash “Derchei Torah” and head of the Beit Din “Derchei Horaa”, published a scathing letter entitled “Preventing Corruption and Epidemic.”
In his letter, Rabbi Weiss urges the Ministry of Health to adhere to and even tighten the guidelines. “Epidemics have accompanied the people of Israel since time immemorial, and in every generation there has been a rule that one must be careful and aggravate to the limit, and an hour of epidemic should not be likened to the general laws of preventing danger in peace and tranquility.”
“All the world’s greats from the East and the West, the sages of Galicia and Lita without exception, ruled that medical experts should be treated as much as they could determine, namely confinement in homes, escape from a place of danger, keeping distance between people and covering the nose and mouth.”
“Shame will cover our face when you do not have a day without much cursing from its author, and every day patients die of this disease, including rebbe, heads of yeshivas, extreme Torah beaters and the people of Beit Yisrael, and thousands groan in pain and anguish, and we can not say our hands have not shed That blood ”.
Rabbi Weiss calls for more aggravation than the health authorities, “Not the Holy Torah alone is a candle to our feet, in which we were commanded, ‘and you are very much saved for your souls,’ ‘.
” During this difficult period, one must be strengthened by the labor of the Torah and its joy, and by the power of prayer and the joy of mitzvah. Did we not know from the books of Chassidut and Morality that every decree is but an experience from heaven and from all difficulties must be strengthened, and each and every one must be strengthened in the perseverance of study and the intention of prayer. “The voice of Torah and prayer will burst forth and ascend to heaven from every house, from every courtyard and garden, and the whole public space will be sanctified in the sanctity of the Torah and will be held in us. ‘
