Q. I daven in a Shul in which a Chasidic writer that writes and publishes constantly articles in the local press against Israel and its non-religious government, comes to join the minyan.
Some people are very upset and demand that he should not be given an aliya, and even be refused entry, since his articles serve as food for Arabs, Palestinians and their local sympathizers that endanger the life of local Jews including children. Is that what should be done?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit”a opinion is that to avoid machlokes, it is better to friendly convince him that since according to his believes the people of the shul are sinners, he should try to find a minyan that supports his views.
Rabbi A. Bartfeld as advised by Horav Shlomo Miller and Horav Aharon Miller Shlit’a.
