The Tempest Around HaRav Elimelech Firer

Rabbi Elimelech Firer is a well-known man of chessed who helps everyone. Recently it was decided to hold a concert and use the proceeds to grow his organization. A reporter noticed that there were no women performers and raised a hue and cry. The event was canceled.

The liberal attack against Rabbi Firer is another escalation in the battle of the secular Israeli public against the Jewish people. HaRav Firer cancelled the event which attempted to organize a body of Friends of Ezra Lemarpe which would have enabled him to expand his humanitarian chessed activities, since he has no time to deal with evil hearted harassers and their bitterness. But neither could he ignore the fact that secular coercion raised a storm and upped the level of unprecedented ruthless hatred of the Israeli citizen.

Avrohom Ovinu was tested ten times. One of the tests was "Lech Lecho," the test of leaving his home. This test followed the test of not denying his faith in HaKodosh Boruch Hu when he faced death by fire in Ur Kasdim.

Avrohom Ovinu fought against idol worship until finally there was a confrontation with the corrupt King Nimrod. Chazal (Tanna Devei Eliyohu Zutah 25) recorded the historical showdown:

"Nimrod said to Avrohom, `Don't you know that I am the master of all creation, the sun and the moon, the stars and the planets — and people! I am the source of them all. And you, why did you destroy my edifices?'
