Dear Brethren and Friends!
It’s sad for me to have to take this decision, but it has to be done.
When I decided to create an Account at Facebook, I saw it as a tool, where I could share Torah, Mussar, Midrash, Kabbalah and many other Jewish topics which would help enrich the souls of my beloved Brethren, who knows, even make a Jew return in Teshuvah to Hashem, Torah and Mitzvot.
I was able via the RSS Feeds of Chabad, Bresleov, Revach L’Neshama, and many other excellent Jewish Web Pages or Blogs, maintain a daily stream of knowledge flowing during 24 hours non stop.
I was also able via Twitter to have a steady and constant flow of Torah, etc. feeding my Account at Facebook.
But unfortunately, I must admit, that things are starting to get out control and simply are defeating the real purpose for which I created the Account.
I must state that I have received messages were I have been insulted, people asking impertinent questions and others, which are not worth mentioning.
To all of that, I never replied, Heaven forbid, I ever do such a thing.
But what really has me upset, are all those Xians, whom I accepted as friends and started to post their believes, which I respect, but absolutely do not believe in, Heaven forbid.
As a Jew, I respect the different believes of my fellowman/fellow woman; but I simply will not accept them flooding my Account with their believes or rubbish.
It’s similar as if a Xian went to my house and started shoving down my throat and imposing his believes, I certainly would have to ask him to leave.
The other reason is that these Xians simply don’t have one bit of respect, they perfectly well know that a Jew doesn’t celebrate Xmas, or any othet Xian festivity, Heaven forbid, and there they go, and tag me on a picture of a Xmas tree.
I must state that due to the slow Internet connection I have, it would be more than cumbersome to start screening each and every person that is not a Jew, I simply don’t have time to lose, I rather be studying or conversing (Hitbodedut) with Hashem.
I’m sad for my Jewish Brethren that will not be able to enjoy and enrich their Holy souls, but I rest assured that you will agree with my decision and lastly and the most important fact is, that if I keep allowing all this rubbish, I would be Desecrating G-d’s Name (“Chilul HaShem“) Heaven forbid.
And to conclude, I publicly declare that I, Aryeh ben Avraham, believe with all my heart and with all my soul and with all my might, that the Lord is my G-d, the Lord is One
And that is something that is chiselled in my heart, and if for one reason or another, I have to die for what I believe, I will do it reciting “Shema Yisrael“.
The facebook Account will be deleted tomorrow 27th, tevet, 5771.
