Letter from MoC to the Committee for Mikvah Standards
OUR LOCAL SUPERMARKETS ARE KOSHER,
WHAT ABOUT YOU?
* Before you sent your letter, did you ask your Rav whether it was motsi shem rah to cast aspersions on mikvaot, mikvah attendants and (by assocition) community rabbanim or did you pasken yourselves?
* Before you sent your letter, did you ask your Rav whether the unnamed mikvahs and mikvah attendants weren't actually well within halachic standards but were perhaps permitting a few women to tovel without the countless chumrahs that have become customary?
* Before you sent your letter did you ask your Rav whether it would have been more appropriate to go through Rabbinic channels rather than annonynously slander unnamed community mikvaot, attendants and rabbanim?
DON'T ASSUME THAT YOUR PRACTICES ARE MEETING HALACHIC STANDARDS.
THE BEST LETTER WRITER IS AN EDUCATED ONE:
WE URGE YOU TO CONTACT YOUR RAV AND DISCUSS
WHETHER YOU HAVE VIOLATED MANY HALACHOS IN SHMIRAS HALOASHON!.
