Make your own organziation

Instead of straining to get a seat on a board so you have a voice to argue, make your own organization and raise and distribute funds which are aligned with your values. Why lean to the notion of something centralized that then devolves into argument? We don’t have a centralized governance body. There’s no universally recognized rabbinate, code of law, book of customs, nusach, etc. Why make believe we do when it comes to money?

Why?

Why create a new organization? This organization supposedly represents all Jews and we’re already eligible to vote. Up until now, they have been advocating for many issues that are contrary to our ideals. We now have the opportunity to reverse the tide. Kind of a Purim transformation.

There are 15 different parties, some of which are already coalition groups. Why not have a Chabad party, or join / back one of the orthodox parties.

I doubt that Chabad will ever create its own party, but I recognized a few Lubavitch names as part of the Eretz Hakodesh party.

Jerusalem Program

In order to vote, one must accept the Jerusalem program. This program is entirely against halacha and Torah values. Therefore, lying is required to vote. Ask your LOR if that’s allowed before voting.

Reply about Jerusalem program.

Many gedolaim and rabanim allowed it. The question is what the CH bes din says.

Read it

Read the current version of the Jerusalem Program and ask a Rav if it’s against Halacha etc

I voted. I don’t recall being asked to accept a Jerusalem program.

Thank you for voting!

I voted for the ZOA Coalition which is made up of the ZOA, Torah from Sinai and a wide mix of orthodox and Zionist groups. Five years ago there were groups that tried to get the JNF to stop planting trees in Judea and Samaria, make the Kotel “pluralistic” and sided with boycotts against Jewish settlers. That is why I voted this year so we can stop these so-called “progressives.”
