Dovber Halevi: Rabbi Wallerstein and the El Al Ticket

On the eve of the 2008 presidential elections the Jewish community was in an uproar.
The United States was about to elect its first Muslim president. It could have catastrophic consequences for Israel and the Jewish people.
That night the Rosh Yeshiva of Torahanytime.com, Rabbi Zecharia Wallerstein spoke. He expressed no fear in the upcoming ascension of Barrack Obama to leader of the free world.
But he was very concerned about the election results.
On the ballot in one of the states was a referendum on legalizing gay marriage.
Authorizing licenses for a man to legally wed another man meant the breaking of the final boundary of civilization. This was far more dangerous than anything the next president could do.
The Torah recounts the horrible consequences of past peoples who tried this.
