Rav Kolodetzky: Rav Chaim Kanievsky Never Predicted When Moshiach is Coming

2

Rav Chaim Kanievsky never issued predictions of when Moshiach is coming, said his son-in-law, Rav Yitzchok Kolodetzky.

Rav Kolodetzky was referring to a story that when someone asked Rav Chaim whether to get an Israeli ID before the elections in order to vote, he replied that Moshiach will have come by then.

“The gedolei Yisroel of all generations had the Thirteen Principles imbued deep in their hearts and constantly expected Moshiach’s arrival every day,” Rav Kolodetzky clarified. “Therefore, in general, when they are asked questions about the far-future, they spontaneously reply that they expect Moshiach to have come by then.

“But he never established a time or date when he would certainly come and often says that only a novi can establish such a fact,” Rav Kolodetzky said. “This is plain and clear.”

  1. Thank you to the Rav for clarifying that. There are many mishugoyim who love to interpret, twist, spin, and take out of context words that our Gedolim say, just in order to satisfy their agenda. Kol hakavod to the Rav.

  2. Please! Stop putting p’shatim & derushim into everything anyone says! Regarding bias haMoshiach, “Wer es zogt der waist nisht, der wer waist, der zogt nisht”. Stop nitpicking every word he says!
