Rabbi Pesach Lerner has come out with a call for all Torah True Jews of every stripe to come out vigorously against Israeli recognition of the Reform movement.I saw that Rabbi Grylak in the Mishpacha magazine also joined the call.I'm a simple jew and felt a need to write a few questions.I doubt that my few words will be published,

So, I'm taking the liberty to copy below what I wrote to the magazine.Maybe my thoughts will benefit someone.

Rabbi Grylak’s joining Rabbi Lerner’s cry ‘Mi la Hashem eilai’ for torah true jews of every stripe to come out vigorously against recognition of this heretical sect, is of course, well taken. But nevertheless, with all due respect , I’d like to point out that we, still living in the Diaspora, have some fundamental

issues to deal with.

                First of all, in today’s world when Israel is a major power , we all must ,individually and collectively, wonder if Moshe Rabbenu’s anger at Bnei God and Bnei Reuven doesn’t apply to us as well. I saw in the name of Rav Finkel zt’l that Moshe compared them to the m’raglim  because if the m’raglim would have loved  the land , ‘ahava m’chase al kol pesha’, they wouldn’t have seen the problems they encountered as problems. ,and so too with Beni god and Bnei Reuven.

                It’s , after all, kind of chutzpadik for us as foreigners, and maybe ludicrous too,  to try to impress ourselves on a sectarian government , especially on their ‘supreme court’, which many of us probably consider the most heretical institution in the world , on the validity of our ‘brand of religion’. The only thing these people are really interested in is the financial impact of the Diaspora on their land.

This past Tishrey (Oct 5), Mishpacha published an article about a dear friend of mine, Yosef Busner, who needs a new kidney .You mentioned there a business he started, buyapieceofisrael. You mistakenly wrote that the business  encourages people to buy agriculture land and work it. Actually they encourage the golah to buy land and partner with Jewish sharecroppers who work it for us, thereby fulfilling the mitzvos hatluyos b’aretz, and keep the land Jewish. They also encourage the golah to buy real estate and hire jewish maintenance, strengthening the yishuv.

                Since I became a partner some years ago, I’ve been steadily pleading with my friends to join us, but very few have listened , even though , the group  has gone to great length to make this affordable to all.

                Ultimately it is the ‘Mama Land’ which unites all our people, of ‘all stripes.’ Israel is no longer so dependent on the Diaspora for support. It is the ‘Startup Nation ‘ in which goyim are rushing to invest. What would be if we, the ‘Torah True Jews’ would start to invest in the land itself and its people, would that not have a real impact not only on the government of Israel, but on ourselves too^

Perhaps that sense of unity of our People would bring all of us to truly yearn together for the Redemption which we need so much. Only then will we merit to see Moshiach bimhera b’yamenu.
