"Breslov for Shas" Started by Rav Schick
Ladaat and Kikar report that Rav Eliezer Shlomo Schick, aka the Tzaddik of Yavne'el, started a "Breslov for Shas" organization to persuade Breslovers to vote for Shas. He wrote a letter stating his opinion, which reads (translated), in part:
You know that I don't get involved in any politics because our whole raison d'être is solely to reveal and publicize the truth of Hashem's existence, for it is only for this reason that we had descended to this world, but to mobilize for the Shas Movement is another matter completely because it is not a political party, but rather "to return the crown to its old state". Maran Hagaon Hamufla Ribbi Ovadia Yosef Shlit"a established the Shas Movement to raise up and elevate the status of Edot Hamizrah, who were, and still are, very much downcast due to accursed racism, etc. Therefore, it is a Mitzvah incumbent upon each and every one of our dear friends to be Moser Nefesh and to help me personally that I will succeed in this holy mission for the success of the Shas Movement.
