Picture Of The Day: Brauns Smicha

November 30, 2010

Rosenberg tells fellow Rabbonim on the Zabla that all Smicha’s in Lubavitch are a joke anyway, therefore he will consider Tzinner’s document as a Smicha regardless of the fact that Tzinner says it’s not a Smicha.  I consider this argument as a direct shtech to the Lubavitcher Rebbe zichrono l’bracha.

One Year Ago Today: Shomrim Six Vindicated from the Messirah and Blood Libel

November 29, 2010

749: Not just an address, a Shomrim Scooter dedicated in honor of the Shomrim Six.

It was last year on this day, the 22nd of Kislev, just a day after the Alter Rebbe celebrated his Didan Notzach, that the Shomrim Six were vindicated from the vicious blood libel and Messirah against them.

Shomrim did not celebrate the verdict as a victory, but as a salvation. The motto of cases conclusion rested in the song which is sung at Yud Tes Kislev Farbrengens around the world, “Podo Beshalom Nafshi… Anshei Domim Umirma Lo Yechtzu Yemaihem” ([g-d] has redeemed my soul in peace… men of blood and swindle may their days be halved).

The trial, before the Hon. Judge Albert Tomei, dragged out a grueling 6 weeks in the same courtroom in which murder and mob trials took place. There the six defendants sat behind their team of six defense attorneys, and watched the mockery of the New York State courts unfold, as witness after witness stuttered and stumbled over each other’s words and stories, through the aid of a translator.

Meticulously, the defense picked apart the prosecution’s case and witnesses, to the point where the judge tossed out the majority of the charges even before allowing the jury to deliberate the case.

Out of the six lawyers hired four of them were legal aid assigned council and the two others were hired and paid for. Between the two of them the costs of the trial exceeded $200,000. The Shomrim emergency defense fund raised close to $25,000 in donations from supporters.

Currently the criminal proceeding has concluded, but the matter of the $149 million civil suit against the Shomrim six, filed by Paul Huebner the attorney for Shmira, is still being actively pursued.

Shomrim has maintained their innocence throughout the two years leading up to the trial and the trial itself, the verdict proved that. Shomrim also alleged that there are bigger matters at play, beginning with political pressure to embellish the charges, and the fact that the DA did not fly the witnesses in, yet they were flown in and their transportation to court was all arranged.

Despite all these Shomrim volunteers remained active and continued doing their work, helping and protecting the community with the support of Shomrims’ loyal supporters.

Tonight the Shomrim Six will get together for a Farbregnen in which they celebrate their victory and triumph.

Gut Yom Tov!

November 26, 2010

19. He redeemed my soul in peace from battles against me, because of the many who were with me. 20. May God-He who is enthroned from the days of old, Selah-hear and humble those in whom there is no change, and who do not fear God. 21. He extended his hands against his allies, he profaned his covenant. 22. Smoother than butter are the words of his mouth, but war is in his heart; his words are softer than oil, yet they are curses. 23. Cast your burden upon the Lord, and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous man falter. 24. And You, O God, will bring them down to the nethermost pit; bloodthirsty and treacherous men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in You.

(Psalm 55:19-24)

“Podo Beshalom Nafshi… Anshei Domim Umirma Lo Yechtzu Yemaihem”

22nd Day Of Kislev 5770 – December 09, 2009

BROOKLYN, NY [CHI] — Today the six Shomrim members who stood trial for what has been dubbed “a modern day blood libel” have been vindicated. All of the major charges against them were either dropped or found not guilty by a unanimous verdict.

Last week, when the prosecution rested and concluded their case, the judge dismissed all charges relating to the allegations about weapons being used at the incident. The gang assault charges were also dismissed by default, for failure to present enough evidence.

The one charge was found guilty against one of the Shomrim volunteers. It was for assault in the 3rd degree, baffling all who were present in the courtroom, including the co-defendants and lawyers.

Upon exiting, the jurors were polled as to the reasons behind their findings; majority answered that none of the witnesses sounded like they had been telling the truth.

Defense council said it was clear that any attack by Shomrim was out of self-defense and that an appeal is forthcoming.

“This is not a Didan Notzach and Shomrim is not celebrating this verdict,” said a spokesperson for the defendants, adding, “We are devastated that our fellow volunteer and friend has been found guilty of this Messira and blood libel. Let us not forget that we still have the $150 million lawsuit against us.”

On a more positive note, Shomrim said, “We were here yesterday, we are here today, and we will be here tomorrow for anyone who calls on us for assistance.”

AFTER 2 YEARS AND 22 DAYS OF TRIAL ALL 6 SHOMRIM MEMBER CLEARED OF THEIR CHARGES. ALTHOUGH IT IS A “VICTORY” AND SHOMRIM WON THE BATTLE THE WAR IS YET TO BE FOUGHT. THERE IS STILL THE 144 MILLION DOLLAR LAWSUIT THAT WAS BROUGHT ON BY PAUL HUEBNER.

THERE IS STILL THE DAY TO DAY MESIRA THAT IS BROUGHT AGAINST SHOMRIM MEMBERS IN THEIR BUSINESS AND HOMES ALMOST DAILY.

LET’S NOT LOOSE FOCUS ON WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS BLOOD LIBEL. AS TIME GOES BY MORE AND MORE OF THE PIECES ARE BEING PICKED UP, EVENTUALLY THE PUZZLE WILL BE COMPLETE. RECENTLY  WIS  REPORTED TO YOU HOW IT WAS  HENNA WHITE WHICH PUSHED (WITH UNPRECEDENTED PRESSURE) THAT THE SHOMRIM SIX BE FULLY PROSECUTED IN THE COURT OF LAW.  CHANINA SPERLIN GOT MRS. WHITE HER JOB AT THE DISTRICTS ATTORNEYS OFFICE.

And You, O God, will bring them down to the nethermost pit; bloodthirsty and treacherous men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in You.


EXCLUSIVE: Possible Lawsuit Against Rebbi Rosenberg

November 21, 2010

In the last week WIS has received numerous emails calling our attention to possible legal action against the Zabla Bais Din. All this as Rabbi Rosenberg has to come to a final decision over Braun candidacy, and Braun promoters want to bring Braun in for Yud Tes Kislav to CROWN him Rov, regardless if he has Smicha or not. The emails allude to the fact that the Zabla Beth Din, primarily Rabbi Avraham Rosenberg, have violated his own verdict – Psak Din.

“What was the point of the Psak if  in the end nothing in it really matters?” asked one resident. He continued “Your trying to rebuild a Bais Din that the community should take seriously, while the whole Psak on which its based is one big joke” is this the way things are done “My 13 year old son has the same eligibility” he added. “He’s under 40, No Smicha, and even knows how to use a Blackbarry” he concluded.

So can there really be legal action?

The arguments being made is that after so much time and money was wasted on a Din Torah, the community was let down.

Crime of Silence: Passivity Vs. Political Correctness

November 20, 2010

“Peace is not the absence of conflict but the presence of creative alternatives for responding to conflict… (Dorothy Thompson).”

“In this very real world, good doesn’t drive out evil. Evil doesn’t drive out good. But the energetic displaces the passive (William Bernbach).”

Having become increasingly committed to Torah Judaism, a woman once lamented in bemusement: “Rabbi, will my moral conflicts ever end? I had hoped, in embracing Judaism, to no longer struggle with issues of moral substance.” After all, is that not what Judaism is about? Yet, it had not turned out that way in the least,” she proceeded in exasperation, “To the contrary; my struggles have become considerably amplified.”

Was the woman right? Do our struggles with right and wrong ever end? Does it ever become obvious how do deal with aggression? Is the fine line between justice and revenge ever clearly defined? Will we ever be certain when to be passive and when to react, and how forceful a reaction is appropriate?

Will we ever know, with unequivocal certainty, when to protest and when to bite our tongues; when to bestow love and when to apply discipline? If these issues have dogged man in the past, the challenge is that much more intensified in our age of political correctness.

While the origins of political correctness is rooted in noble intentions, like so many other good ideas, its benefit was short lived.

Political correctness has been quickly pushed to a counterproductive extreme; whose purpose is to avoid offending anyone. Offending someone has become the ultimate evil to be avoided at all cost. The result of this new creed is not more civil debate, but rather no debate at all. The latter is robbing society of fundamental freedoms.

False 311 Complaints Leave Homeowners Fuming

November 18, 2010
Updated 03/10/2010 09:43 PM

The Queens district attorney’s office is looking into claims that someone is filing numerous false complaints against property owners in the borough through 311. NY1’s Ruschell Boone filed the following report.

Calling a complaint that there is an illegal first floor conversion in her home on 28th Avenue “completely fictitious,” a Queens homeowner — who did not want to be identified — says she found out about the complaint a few days ago after neighbors said last year someone phoned in similar complaints about their property to 311.

“We found out that back in October hundreds of homes were given complaint notifications and now the buildings department is coming around,” said the homeowner.

Three blocks away on 25th Avenue, homeowner Billy Colangelo said DOB inspectors have been to his house twice.

“I bought the house a little over five years ago and we didn’t change anything. So if everything was legal then I don’t know what happened to make it illegal now,” Colangelo said.

Many of Colangelo’s neighbors say they too have received complaints about problems they don’t believe exist.

“Some of the homes cited for having an illegal conversion of the basements didn’t even have a basement. Some of the building locations, we pulled them up with block and lot numbers, where the buildings had been demolished and there were no longer homes on the properties being listed,” said City Councilman Dan Halloran.

Halloran and dozens of residents in Flushing, Whitestone and Malba say they believe two construction companies are calling the complaints in as a way to drum up business.

“They were coming around handing out construction cards to the people that got the violations to get the contract.

NY1 reached out to both companies for comment. One said residents had no proof and denied making the calls. The other said it was aware of the claims, but it too denied the allegations.

The Queens district attorney’s office says it’s looking into the matter. The New York City Department of Investigation says it too is aware of the issue but had no other comment.

While the complaints are being looked at, homeowners say they want the Department of Buildings to halt inspections of their homes until the matter is resolved. But the agency says complaints like these have to be investigated to ensure public safety.

Residents, meanwhile, say they just want the city to get to the bottom of the issue.
