re: The Satmar Rebbe’s Omission

We wrote this about the Satmar Rebbe:

And this strengthens my case that Rabbi Yoel erred in his opus by not attacking the positive commandment of rebuilding the Holy Temple. If you want to destroy Judaism, undermining the Jewish tongue, Jewish sovereignty, and the Jewish land are a good start, yet insufficient. He should have realized: the next frontier will be the Jewish Temple, and he will have had no credit in trying to prevent it. But of course, Rabbi Yoel was anything but prescient.

I would like to add that in his ‘Divrei Yoel’ Rabbi Tetelbaum even takes the position that the Holy Temple will first be built by man before it “comes down from heaven”.
