A Little Editing

.

In honor of this week's aguNah israel of money convention
I've taken the
initiative of editing the posting of
Agudath Israel of America
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Agudath Israel of America (or Agudas Yisroel of America or Agudat Yisrael of America or simply the Agudah [agudah "gathering" or "union" ]), is a Haredi Judaism Jewish communal organization in the U.S. loosely affiliated with the international World Agudath Israel. Not all Haredi groups belong to the Agudah. (thank G-d)



For example, Satmar considers Agudah to be too "pro-Zionist",
(who the hell needs them?)
and Lubavitch views it as too hostile to its own agenda.(agudah was never welcoming ti Chabad and besides Lubobs are too inclusive for the likes of yeshivasha velt *shudder*)


Functions
Agudah in the United States has managed to retain its major Hasidic factions, with members from the Ger Hasidim in America working together within the organization and its Lithuanian mitnagdim partners. Agudah represents many members of the yeshiva world, known as mitnagdim, and sectors of Hasidic Judaism, commonly known as Haredim or "ultra-Orthodox" Jews. Not all Hasidic Jewish groups are affiliated with Agudath Israel.(so long as they "toe the party line" of select anti-semitism and catholic dogma) .
It has ideological connections with both the Agudat Israel party and with Degel HaTorah two Israeli Orthodox Jewish political parties( for the mentally un-stable).
In Israel, Degel and Agudah were in a political coalition called United Torah Judaism (UTJ) that is presently defunct.( yay G-d)
AIA is also a part of the World Agudath Israel organization, which convenes international conferences and religious conclaves.( sounds like something out of Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion ).

History
The original Agudath Israel movement was established in Europe in 1912 by some of the most famous Orthodox rabbis of the time. It grew during the 1920s and 1930s to be the political, communal, and cultural voice of those Orthodox Jews who were not part of Zionism's Orthodox Jewish Mizrachi party( like Rav Kook or other "evil" lovers of jews).
"Rabbi" Moshe Sheretz lead the expansion of the movement during the 1950s until his death during the mid-1990s as its chief lay leader , ( also known as the ' gadol maker' he created R' Frand and Sruli Riesmann he endorsed much of the illegal activites of the agudah under the banner of leman Hashem and he also chose the now incarcerated David Schick to head the agudah's ethics board) .
