Question
Often you answer halachic enquiries regarding subjects which have been actualised since the establishment of the State of Israel, i.e. territories, Yom Hazmaut, etc. Your answers, based an your ideological background and whilst in its context correct, are sometimes in sharp disagreement with the Psak of the Rabbanim of other groups (Rav Elyashiv, Rav C. Kanievski and Rav Wosner to mention a few). As you do not advertise the fact that your Psak is based on national religious Rabbis, is it not misleading to the public to withhold the fact that the Psak is not agreed by everyone?
Answer
When you ask Rabbis from other groups (Rav Elyashiv, Rav C. Kanievski and Rav Wosner to mention a few) a Halachic enquiry regarding subjects which have been actualized since the establishment of the State of Israel, i.e. territories, Yom Haatzmaut, etc; and they give their Psak based on their ideological background and whilst in its context correct, are sometimes in sharp disagreement with the Psak of the Rabbanim of other groups (Rav A. Shapira, Rav M. Eliyahu, Rav Z. Melamed to mention a few) is it not misleading to the public to withhold the fact that the Psak is not agreed by everyone? The clear answer is simply – no. When you ask for a Psak you get the Psak as the rabbi you asked views the issue. If you are asking for an overview of the different opinions on whatever it may be – you can expect for more than one answer. More so I think that when most people ask Rabbis contemporary queries like the above – they know the core issues of dispute in advance.
