Rabbi Avraham Sholom Blum, from Williamsburg, who is the son of the late Kasho Rebbe, Rabbi Raphael Blum, Zt’l, and is highly respected as a Torah scholar and for his keen understanding of politics, launched a strong attack against incumbent Governor Kathy Hochul, denouncing her as a wicked person while issuing a scathing rebuke of any religious Jew who votes for her.
Speaking to his followers, the rabbi called out Hochul supporters who say that she has defended yeshivas, noting that the governor has remained quiet on the issue and has done nothing to advocate for Jewish educational institutions and that those who say otherwise are not being truthful.
He then took to slamming the Democratic party, decrying them as promoters of immoral behavior. “What I don’t understand is how in the world religious Jews can vote for any Democrat, a party that indulges in the lowest behavior and all kinds of abominations,” said the rabbi.
On the other hand, the rabbi praised Congressman Lee Zeldin as an ethical individual, someone who has spoken out in favor of yeshiva education even at tremendous personal cost, with liberals attacking him for his statements.
Describing Zeldin as someone who is unafraid to stand up for the truth, the rabbi said he believed that the Republican is the best choice for New York’s next governor.
Lastly, the Rabbi also stated that he, who once had thought will sit in during election day, is now of the opinion that it is a kiddush Hashem to show appreciation to Zeldin, who has continued to support the causes that matter most to the Jewish community.
