I know that the Rav says about the UJA that it’s treif and it’s a waste to give them money but people are saying that when it comes to resettling the Russians refugees the UJA is the only one that has the koach to help them?
Question: Should we help the UJA in the resettling of Russian Jews?
The Agudas Yisroel has a big fund for that too. So give to the Agudas Yisroel. They can use your money – they’re helping the Russian Jews too. You don’t need the UJA.
And the Agudah does it in a much better way than anybody else does it. I’m not saying that the Agudah is the very best organization, I’m not saying that. But they certainly can use that money better than the UJA people can use it. No question about that.
