Rav Chaim Kanievsky On Tomorrow’s Elections



  1. אשרינו שיש לנו רבי ומורה דרך כזה, מרן שר התורה שליט”א, יאריך ימים על ממשלתו

    No one should be fooled by manipulations, fancy PR, and glossy magazine pieces put out by others.

    כלל ישראל is matzliach when they follow gedolim like מרן שר התורה שליט”א.

    • Klal Yisrael b”H have lots of Gedolei Yisrael to follow, whether it’s for Litvish Bnei Brak, Litvish Yerushalayim, Shas, Chassidim, etc.

  2. In other words someone that votes Shas or Gimmel in accordance with the P’sak of his Rav and מורה דרך is מחלל שם שמים !

    • You have to read the whole thing to get the context.

      The question posed was by someone who usually votes Degel and follows Rav Chaim שליט”א, but this election he got a call from a local Rav, telling him that this time he should vote otherwise. Should he listen to the local Rav this time instead of following Rav Chaim as usual.

      It is not directed to people from other streams who don’t follow Degel/Rav Chaim anyway.


    • Yes. Correct. Happy you were able to get it straight. Thank you for pointing out the obvious in case there were some readers who may have thought otherwise.

      There is a fascinating video circulating of Rav Sorotzkin discussing with Rav Chaim what some are saying about Rav Chaim with regard to the elections. Rav Chaim is quite clear with his opinion on such people who doubt him.

      • That video was originally released 5 years ago.
        The fact that this video needed to be recycled, proves everything you need to know about what goes down in the house of Maran Sar HaTorah Shlita.

        Bizayon talmidei chachomim is one of the worst things you can do.
