Are you a part of Klal Yisroel?

Are you a part of Klal Yisroel? Odds are you're not.

According to the promotional paraphernalia being distributed in support of the anti-Internet rally at CitiField, the great sages are urging all of Klal Yisroel to participate, only guess who's not invited*:
  • Women
  • Lubovitchers
  • The Yeshiva University community
  • The Syrian community
  • The Yemenite community
  • Every Conservative Jew in the world
  • Every  Reform Jew in the world
  • Every Re-constructionist Jew in the world
So if you belong to one of these groups - bad news: The Skullner Rebbe, the Mashgiach of Lakewood, and the other BoldNames who put their signature on this event do not consider you part of Klal Yisroel.

But, perhaps you knew that already.

* by which we mean, no one from the community has been added to the steering committees, their schools aren't being asked to promote the event, and their rabbis haven't been invited to planning meetings.
