Rabbi Mizrachi sent in response: Again and again, those zealous, fight-inducing people are expending efforts to harm the Teshuva campaign that embraces the world which I have been successful in building for 23 years of back-breaking work. It does not interest them that every year, there are many thousands of Ba'alei Teshuva in Israel and the world. As far as they're concerned, all of them would be lost forever - the main thing is their claims about what I said in its time many years ago regarding the terrible assimilation that preceded the Holocaust and caused many people with Jewish names not being Jewish according to Halacha and the Torah, something that anyone with a brain and truth knows - and that is exactly the situation in the US today.
Every time before I come to a speaking tour in Israel, whereby thousands of Jews are strengthened, amazingly those claims again start tweeting. Baruch Hashem, I work for Hashem and not for them, and we continue to grow every month Baruch Hashem just like it was from the day I started working. On the day that they will stop inventing lies and accusations against me, I will know that I have finished my mission for Am Yisrael.
From Yaak: Rabbi Mizrachi and his ideas should continue to grow
From Shirat Devorah: In Defense of Rabbi Mizrachi
I would have posted this yesterday, but here in Yerushalayim we bring in Shabbat 40 minutes earlier Erev Shabbat, and I spent all day Thursday preparing and cooking for the Shabbat. My greatest pleasure.
If anyone would like to join in defense of Rabbi Yosef Mizrachi, please add your comment here and at the above two blog links. We need to take a stand for the Torah.
