American Asifa/Atzeres/Assemblage Accomplishment?
Yesterday was the American Asifa because of the decision by the Israeli Government to conscript Yeshiva bochurim, under penalty of jail-time.
I understand that the Manhigim of Eretz Yisroel have asked their American counterparts to assist in any possible way to impede the Gezerah which will change their way of life.
I realize that Davening B'rov Am will certainly help any situation, and the Kiddush Hashem of rallying so many people on short notice who are orderly, is certainly a plus.
Yet on the down-side, this certainly creates ill-will among those who only see the Chareidim as shirking their responsibilities to society.
Good thing that this decision to amass is not mine.
