Rav Avigdor Miller on the Satmarer Rebbe

print
Q:
Even the Litvishe Rabbonim recognize today that the Satmerer Rebbe was the Tzadik ha’dor. So why aren’t they also shouting out against certain things in the same way the Satmerer Rebbe did?


A:
And the answer is that to shout out the truth requires not only conviction but it requires courage as well. And therefore, there are a lot of people who believe in certain principles but they don’t want to put themselves out. They don’t have the level of mesiras nefesh needed to fight for these principles. Look, sometimes it can be quite uncomfortable. Therefore it’s understandable that even people who agree with the Satmerer Rav are not in the mood to expose themselves to public opprobrium.
