WARNING - ATTENTION ALL FRUM JEWS!... YOU NOW KNOW ABOUT PUBLIC ENEMY # 1- WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT IT?

Wednesday, February 01, 2006 - From the UOJ Archives exactly one year ago.

WARNING-ATTENTION ALL FRUM JEWS!

Lipa Margulies: As I see it you have 24 hours to make a decision which may determine the fate of your life's work.

Door number 1:

Fire the chronic child molester Kolko and you get to die with your business somewhat intact.

Door number 2:

Assume you can threaten and buy your way out of this looming disaster and you leave this world in absolute and utter disgrace.

I'm here to inform you that if Kolko is not out of Torah Temima today, you will be facing your Waterloo, Hiroshima and Nagasaki all rolled into one nice neat package. No more dinners, no more $50,000.00 club members and no more board members to take advantage of. Don't be stupid, you have too much to lose. We have allowed you to build up a big business in our community.We should have ousted you years ago; you are HUMAN TINAF!

All we ask is that you not subject our children to a molester.
Do the right thing, get rid of this child molester today.

You never had to deal with a force as powerful as this; WE WILL CONTINUE OUR EFFORTS UNTIL OUR GOAL IS MET, NO BUYING YOUR WAY OUT OF THIS SCANDAL!

The letter below is being mailed TONIGHT to thousands of Orthodox Jewish households in Boro Park, Kensington and Flatbush. I am asking my readers to please copy the letter from this post and e-mail it to as many people as possible. Together, we can put a stop to this depravity.

WARNING-ATTENTION ALL OF JUDAISM.......... There is a chronic child molester in our midst. He is not in hiding nor is he being kept away from our children. Shockingly, he is a rebbe in Yeshiva Torah Temima located at 507 & 555 Ocean Parkway in Brooklyn, New York. Rabbi Lipa Margulies knows of this rebbe’s history of sexually molesting children. Rabbi Lipa Margulies refuses to remove this predator from his yeshiva. Specifically, Rabbi Lipa Margulies has been informed, repeatedly and from sources independent of each other, that Rabbi Yudi Kolko has sexually molested countless children during his long career around children.Rabbi Yudi Kolko sexually molested children in Camp Agudah. Rabbi Yudi Kolko sexually molested children in Yeshiva Karlin Stolin. Rabbi Yidi Kolko sexually molested children in Camp MaNaVu. Rabbi Yudi Kolko spends his life around our children. It bears repeating that Rabbi Yudi Kolko is currently a rebbe in Yeshiva Torah Temima.

We have a problem.

This is not to say that our wonderful community has more child molesters than other communities. We may even have substantially fewer. The problem is in our propensity to ignore the covering up of these horrendous incidents. Child molesters must be exposed and removed from our midst. Our children must not be subjected to molesters while in school. Rabbi Lipa Margulies must stop his unconscionable employment of this molester and his covering up of this threat. Rabbi Yudi Kolko must resign his position immediately. We can not rest until our children are safe from this scourge.This mailing should not have been necessary. Both Rabbi Yudi Kolko and Rabbi Lipa Margulies were given advance copies of this letter and advised if Rabbi Yudi Kolko left Yeshiva Torah Temima immediately, this mailing would be stopped. Rabbi Yudi Kolko responded: “the matter has been taken care of” coupled with an offer to meet with his victims in person, one at a time. Rabbi Lipa Margulies responded: “I don’t think he is still a threat and I am responsible for the children” followed by “Anyone who doesn’t like it, doesn’t have to send their children to my yeshiva.” In short, neither of these mechanchim deny the facts, they simply refuse to do the right thing. We are writing to ask you to speak out and help bring an end to this nightmare. Please call Rabbi Yudi Kolko at 1-718-252-6642 and ask him to resign his position immediately. Please call Rabbi Lipa Margulies at 1-718-438-1900 and ask him to dismiss Rabbi Yudi Kolko immediately. Child molesters must be kept away from our children. Our children deserve no less.......

Lipa Margulies, read this news flash very seriously.

Attorney: Spokane Church Offers SettlementBy NICHOLAS K. GERANIOS-Associated Press/AP Online02/01/2006 5:43 PM SPOKANE, Wash. -

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Spokane, which filed for bankruptcy after being barraged with sex-abuse lawsuits, has offered a $45.7 million settlement to 75 people who say they were molested by priests. Bishop William Skylstad publicly apologized Wednesday to the victims "for the terrible wrongs inflicted on you in the past." He urged Catholics to accept the proposed settlement, which will require money from individual parishes. "To those of you who say this settlement will be a burden, I would say that this scandal is a burden we can no longer afford not to resolve," said Skylstad, head of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. Plaintiffs' lawyer James Stang said a committee representing alleged victims voted Tuesday night to recommend that the offer be accepted. Under the proposed settlement, the diocese agreed not to describe the plaintiffs as "alleged victims" anymore and to give them the opportunity to address parishes and write about their experiences in the diocesan newspaper. Skylstad also would go to each parish where abuse occurred to identify the offending clergymen, Stang said. Skylstad also agreed to support the abolition of statutes of limitations on sex crimes, write letters to abused individuals and their families and add two members of a victims group to a board that reviews clergy sex abuse complaints, Stang said. Some of those who would benefit financially from the offer said the diocese's other concessions were more important. "Civil litigation was the only way to hold them accountable," abuse victim Mike Corrigan said at a news conference Wednesday. "Most of us would rather they went to jail than get money out of them." Stang said the offer must be approved by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court and by the victims individually within 120 days. The settlement would cover all those who have already sued the diocese. There is no provision for anyone who might bring a claim in the future. The diocese filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2004, citing claims by abuse victims totaling about $77 million against assets of about $11 million. Two other U.S. dioceses - Tucson, Ariz., and Portland, Ore. - have filed for bankruptcy because of sex abuse claims. A $22.2 million settlement was reached last summer in Tucson, while a federal judge in Portland ruled last month that trials involving as many as 100 plaintiffs could move forward.

while I respect the work you've done to rid the kolko's in our midst and am totally on your side to that end...I need to admit I lost lots of respect after you slowly stuck an anti-chabad vort here 'n and anti-lubab vort there.

very subtle at first.then you now quote failed messiah another loser ex-lubav that is scorned by lets just say most any lubabvitcher/chabad and now your dissing rubashkin. I admit no one is immune but this is overkill. You obviously have an ax to grind with chabad which is nothing short of dumb. With all the faults like everyone/other sects they shine a million times over the rest, and bring chizuk and pride to every corner of the world.

just my rant and my rant it is.

the following is a summary of the events relating to Rav Dovid Cohen's ("RDC") speeches at Beth Abraham this Shabbos and my subsequent conversation with him.

I should have listened to Rav Schachter when he said publicly in shiur a few years ago not to daven in his shul because of RDC's disgraceful approach to business ethics in building his shul with stolen money.

RDC publicly said that there is no problem with cheating on taxes or lying on a tax return. He also said that all goyim hate Jews and we should not be fooled by American goyim who hide it better.

He said that he would deny having said this if anyone from the press (or someone that he suspects might be from the press) asks him about it.

I called him yesterday to ask how he can say that it is permissible to cheat on taxes when the Shulchan Aruch, Tur, Rambam, and many others all say that cheating on taxes from a non-Jewish government is a violation of lo sigzol.

His answer was similar to a conservative rabbi. He said that he does not feel bound by the psak of the shulchan aruch. In any case, he said that he believes that all of the statements in the shulchan aruch, rambam etc. that tax evasion is forbidden was put in there because of fear of anti-Semitism if they said the truth which is that you can cheat on your taxes.

He therefore said that he ignores all of these statements in the sifrei halacha. In fact, he said that he paskens that you can outright steal from a gentile (even one that keeps the seven mitzvos and is not an idolater) as long as you think that you will not get caught and cause a chillul hashem.

I then pointed out to him that every posek in the past two thousand years has paskened that gezel akum is forbidden under lo sigzol. He once again said that he does not believe that they meant that and they were only saying it for fear of the goyim. This sounds like Strauss's view of the Rambam (I can explain that if you are not familiar with it).

In addition, I heard him many years ago say that Baruch Goldstein did not violate lo tirzach and that the only reason he should not have killed the Arabs was because his actions were likely to create more violence against Jews.

As to other crazy things he said, he said on Friday night that you are obligated to vote for the candidate that your rabbi tells you to vote for based on daas torah.

He also told me during my call on Sunday that it is an issur doraisa to say anything complimentary about any gentile. His example was that a person who says that Beethoven was a good composer is violating an issur doraisa.

He caused a great chillul hashem as many people told me after he spoke that they were sickened by what he said. I have a call in to Rav Schachter to let him know what happened as he will certainly hit the wall when he hears this.

He used to tell us in shiur on many occasions that the basics of Judaism relate to honesty and integrity and people who cheat on taxes or steal are a disgrace to Judaism. When I got married, he told me that the main thing to ask the witnesses is whether they ever cheated on their taxes. I also plan to speak to Rabbi Neuberger about this. I kind of feel responsible that I did not tell Rabbi Neuberger what I know about David Cohen before he came.

I had always heard in Flatbush that he has no problem with cheating and stealing in business as long as Jews are not hurt. I also plan on sending letters to Ohel (where he is the posek) and to Avi Shafran at the Agudah.

This man must be stopped although I am not sure what is the best way to do it. There were hundreds of people in the audience who, if they believe him, will think that Judaism allows them to cheat and steal. One baal teshuva told me that he could not sleep that night because he had always been told that Judaism preached honesty and integrity and he now sees that a very well known and respected posek can get up and advocate stealing and cheating.

He is questioning everything he has been taught. The sad thing is that he infiltrated the YU community because he is articulate and worldly.

shut up Uoj-just write more and create a bigger chillul hashem.

The meshichisten Lubavichers pretty much deserve whatever the Faild Messaiah, UOJ, or anybody else says about them! I can just second what Rav Shakh ZTz"l had said about the Rebbe when it became clear where was he taking Lubavitch to, that had he (rav Shakh) been younger he would attack the Rebbe with a spear and Herem, etc. As for the non-Meshichisten, I may give them the benefit of the doubt. Maybe they really do not follow the Avoda Zara of the Meshichisten, although there are signs that at least many of them unfortunately do.

I don't believe a word of that rant against R' Dovid Cohen. People are jealous of his success, and the fact that he's not a kool-aid drinker. And perhaps people like him because unlike most chareidi rabbis, he smiles, he's personable, and he doesn't look angry all the time. Everything that he says he can back up. I guess they don't boo you if you're a nobody.

If Dovid Cohen said what was expressed by a person claiming to have heard him, the man should be tied to the back of a SUV and dragged down Coney Island Av. and tossed into the meat grinder at Chap-A-Nosh.

This letter has been posted on every FTP in YU. The letter
will circulate through YU email and will be posted in the Cafeteria.
The FTPs will cause mass dispersion (I hope) and the phones
in Lipa's home will ring for a long long time.

I am glad to do my part, UOJ. I just hope my plan works as well
as I think it does. FTP has several thousand hits a day, all
pro-active Jewish young adults. Lets see how this goes.

Much appreciated.

Yeshivishe Nudnik said...

YU guy,

The Facebook & YU cafeteria postings should indicate that although Kolko was officially removed from the classroom, he is still snuck into the Torah Temimah Camp in Sullivan County. The executive director secured a summer home for Kolko next door so he can just mosey on over.

Otherwise, I'm surprised that Kolko didn't change his home phone number last year.

UOJ & YU Guy had better not get any big ideas. The 30th yortzeit of my fraud with meat & cheese sandwiches is coming up. I've got friends from rough neighborhoods who can retaliate against you. Just one phonecall and my buddy Nosson Scherman will put out an Artscroll book villainizing the two of you. And if this escalates to the point where YU students start calling me at home, I'll run around to get the gedolim to sign against you like I organized the Slifkin lynching.

Chadarei Haredim (haredi rooms), hosted by the Hyde Park Forum Management, is Israel's most popular haredi forum, with between 3,500 and 6,000 hits an hour.

Moshe is the nickname used by the 45-year-old haredi Jerusalem resident who manages the forum.

Moshe said there was a real need for forums like his own.

"We are capable of revealing stories that would never be exposed by mainstream haredi journalists. I believe my forum helps make the haredi community a better place by uncovering these negative elements and eliminating them."

Moshe cited the example of a well-known rabbi who also worked as a marital counselor. Chadarei Haredim was flooded with complaints that the man was sexually harassing women who came to him for help. Within a short time, the rabbi was expelled from the yeshiva that employed him.

A word of caution to the young YU students and others. I read an article, I believe in the Wall Street Journal, that the HR departments at major employers are searching for profiles of job candidates on Facebook & MySpace. You would be surprised how many opportunities are missed because of what turns up on those pages.

If any employer has a problem with the fact that I have a strong stance against child molestation, I'd prefer to not have them as my Employer.
