Petition Against New York ultra-Orthodox Billionaire Shimon Glick - Thousands of Yeshiva Students in Israel & the US Sign Petition Calling on Glick to Withdraw Intention to Take over 'Yated Ne'eman'
TEL-AVIV, Israel, June 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
A petition is currently being circulated in the ultra-Orthodox street calling on New York ultra-Orthodox billionaire Shimon Glick to withdraw from his attempt to take over the 'Yated Ne'eman' newspaper by removing the Rabbi Eliashiv trustees from positions of influence in the newspaper.
Tens of thousands of Yeshiva students in Israel and in the US have already signed the petition and many thousands more are expected to sign in the next few days.
Sources close to 'Yated Ne'eman' stated that this is a dangerous attempt to hurt the Lithuanian stream of the 'Degel HaTorah' Party and weaken the power of this significant body by disconnecting it from the glorious rabbinical legacy of Rabbi Shach, and therefore it must be uprooted.
It was also reported that the moves taken by Glick harm Rabbi Shach's enterprise and threatens rabbis and intellectuals closely associated with "Yated Ne'eman" and its supporters.
