Rabbi Haredi Sternbuch, Rabbi of the Haredi community, recently referred to the corona crisis, calling for caution in getting out and catching up, but at the same time “not to be afraid of the government.”
In a holiday talk he gave to the Kahla Kadisha magazine of the ultra-Orthodox community, the Rabbi attacked the heads of the ultra-Orthodox community, explaining that all they say is to keep the instructions, only because they are trying to flatter the government and convince them that ultra-Orthodox are not spreaders.
At the beginning of the conversation, Sgt. Sternbuch referred to being protected from the virus and said: “Anyone who is ill with corona, of course he must keep and stay away, and be careful not to infect others.”
“Everything else,” says the Rabbi, “if he is going to speak a mitzvah, study or teach or pray, etc., then surely we have the promise that ‘a mitzvah observer will not know anything bad.'”
As to the question of whether one should be afraid, Sergeant Sternbuch replied: “No fear. It has no place in the life of a Jew. One should fear only the Lord of the world. If a person has faith and confidence in the Lord of the world, there is nothing more to fear than anything else. A observant person will not know anything bad. “
“The way to be saved,” the rabbi of the Haredi community added, “is only by improving his ways, giving charity to the poor and asking the Creator of the world that he will be saved through it.”

The rabbi added: “One should know that the plague came into the world only to announce his kingship and be blessed to all the inhabitants of the world. ‘I am first, I am last and there is no G-d’;
The rabbi defined the reason for the corona’s arrival as “a warning to the general public. The Creator gives a warning ‘there are no punishments unless you warn’. From this one should be afraid and apprehensive. If one is not afraid and apprehensive, then God forbid real troubles will come, Lord have mercy”.
Maybe there is also good in Corona, thanks to which the desecration of the Sabbath was avoided? The Rabbi was asked – and replied: “If there is heresy, it is still not helpful to mend the spoiled ways of the infidels. This is not the point where all this heavenly act has come to reveal to us. He comes to reveal to us that the Creator is the owner of the world over the world, and just as He revives the world all the time, so He can destroy it in an instant. We must be afraid of the Creator. “

“All customs must be observed during the holiday – as usual,” the rabbi stated, explaining: “All decisions are mixed with lies and politics. We must do our part: to be properly preserved, but certainly to continue the tradition that has been practiced for generations. “

Regarding his long-standing instruction to keep the Hyderabades open, the GRM said: “There is a lot of lies in what they say. No truth. “All the noise they make about keeping the regulations – its source is impure, as if they will decide for us what to do.”
“They (referring to ultra-Orthodox rabbis and party-affiliated public figures) do so because they want to please the secular and prove to them that they abide by regulations, so that they do not make fun of us as spreaders of disease.”
“There is no zealotry in their actions for the sake of a mitzvah, and all their words in it do not stem from reverence and the importance of human life, but everything stems from the desire to flatter the secular heads of government and dance ‘Ma Yafit’,” the rabbi concluded.
“The truth is,” explains the Rabbi, “that it will not be upheld for them, because the secularists will always make fun of the ultra-Orthodox – even if we keep all the regulations – they will always find reasons to make fun of us. And the way to deal with them is not through flattery, but rather that we do not care at all what they think – and that their words will seem to us – like beasts. “
