Rabbi Bogomilsky On The Run-Off

Paving the way for the lawsuit- From Fishel Brownsteins own words: "When I was first elected, the CHJCC was in shambles. The disastrous state of the Council’s finances and books had destroyed the confidence of governmental and private funding sources. Despite the well-known obstacles and distractions, I utilized my accounting and executive experience to bring order to the CHJCC’s finances and to restore the confidence of public officials and private funders." AND SO WAS BORN THE SUBPOENAS!


Rabbi Bogomilsky is a well-known and respected Rov in the Crown Heights community and to hundreds of Shiluchim around the world. The Rabbi is also part of Vaad Rabboni Lubavitch and is the author to many Sefrim/books.

In Lubavitch we say
“מדארף לעבען מיט דער צייט ” [we must live with the times], this week in Crown Heights we will have a runoff election. There are three candidates that we could vote for, Shea Hecht, Yossi Hackner and Fishel Brownstein. I’m recommending to vote for Hecht, and Hackner. Do not vote for Browstein,

I’ll explain:
In this week’s Torah portion, Parshas Pinchas, the Torah only mentions the one event that took place with Zimri, but not about the others from the tribe of Simeon who also sinned with Midianite women. The reason for this is, being that Zimri was the Chairman of the tribe, he becomes responsible for the entire tribe and all that they do.

The same applies to Crown Heights, from the four Va’ad members who entered into court Mesiros on people of our Shchuna and some Mosdos, it was Brownstein who was their Chairman. Brownstein is responsible for all that they did, and he is a Moser just like the others.

Let me quote some history: in tractate Sota (Daf 22b) there is a story with King Yannai and his queen Shelomis, as follows:

A little background; Yannai was a scion of the Chashmonaite dynasty and he served both as king and Kohen Godol in the latter part of the second temple period. However, Yannai became a Sadducee (Berachos 29a) and he massacred the Sages, and he was therefore hated by the Perushim [the term for those faithful to the Rabbis and meticulous in their Torah observance, fierce opponents of the Sadducees]. When he was close to his death, Queen Shelomis was worried that the Perushim will not allow her children to assume the throne because of their hatred to Yannai. So she asked Yannai to beseech the Perushim on her behalf in this matter [and to reconcile himself with them (Meiri)]. Yannai told her:

“Do not be afraid of the Perushim, or from those who are not Perushim. Rather, Fear only the pretenders, those who look like Perushim, but in reality are not pious; for their actions are like those of Zimri, and they seek the reward like Pinchas.”

Meaning: that Shelomis had nothing to fear from the true Perushim, because they were truly righteous and they will not retaliate against her or her children on account of Yannai’s actions. She had nothing to fear from the Sadducees because they were her friends, but he warned her that she did have to fear the colored ones, those whose
appearance is not reflective of their true essence. Their color is only external, but they are very different on the inside. In other words they are hypocrites.

Brownstein sent letters to the entire neighborhood declaring his accomplishments. He got money from so and so and he gave out scholarships for camps. Yet, he never showed us any reports of whom he gave money to, and which camps did he support, if there is no evidence, could it be that he is merely talking?
What we do know for certain is that Brownstein’s participated as a signatory in the disgraceful act of Mesira, an “act of Zimri,” and now he asks us to vote for him and to give him the reward of Pinchas. These are the type of people we should stay away from.

Rabbi Moshe Bogolmilsky (L) with Rabbi Rabbi Yaacov Schwei (R)Those are the people we should stay away.

I don’t want to G-d forbid compare Zimri to Brownstein. We all know that before Zimri did the disgraceful act with the Midianite woman, he went to ask Moshe, and only after he didn’t like Moshe’s answer, did Zimri say “who permitted Yetro’s daughter to you?”

But in our case, when I was served the subpoena last year, I got a phone call from Rabbi Schwei, he told me then: Reb Moshe, I never gave them permission to subpoena you! I can also assure you that from Rabbi Osdoba they also didn’t get permission to do this Mesira, in fact Rabbi Osdoba came out with a very strong letter calling them Mosrim. So which Rav did they ask that he gave them permission for Mesira???

It is written in the Novi (Amos 2-6.)

“Thus said Hashem: For three transgressions of Israel [I looked away], but for four I will not pardon them – for their selling a righteous man for money, and a poor man for shoes.”

My explanation goes as follows: We got rid of three transgressors three weeks ago, now we must not look the other way, and allow in the fourth transgressor (by voting for Brownstein).

I want to conclude, that if anyone thinks that Brownstein is as innocent as a lamb, and he doesn’t understand what a subpoena is, I must relate to you what I heard from a Rav in the city, that one of his Shul members who was a client of Brownstein’s, had a disagreement with Brownstein which led him to sue Brownstein in court. Mr. Brownstein went to this Rav of his client, and he begged him to convince the other guy to go to a Din-Torah instead of taking him to court.
Mr. Brownstein knows very well what going to court means, and he surely understands the ramifications of Mossering on someone to court. Don’t vote for Brownstein.
