PARENTS -------- IT COULD BE ANY TEACHER/REBBE/ADULT YOU KNOW! YES...ANYONE! ARE THERE SAFEGUARDS IN PLACE TO PROTECT YOUR CHILD?


From left to right, top row: Rebecca Boicelli, former teacher in Redwood City, Calif.; Donald Coots, who taught in Ohio; Mary Kay LeTourneau, ex-teacher in the Seattle area; Aaron Brevik, who worked in Warren, Mich. Middle row: Jason Ream, once a teacher in Elyria, Ohio; Carrie McCandless, who taught in Fort Collins, Colo.; Kevin Collins, a former band director in Ohio; Troy Mansfield, of Pennsylvania. Bottom row: Debra Lafave, of Florida; Gerald S. Huddleston, of Illinois; Jeffrey Sears of Ohio; Laurie J. Augustine, of Illinois.

From The AP Wire Services:

The effort began in March, when Associated Press reporters in every state and the District of Columbia asked state education officials for records of disciplinary actions taken against teacher licenses from 2001 through 2005. To obtain the records, most of the reporters had to file formal requests, some repeatedly.

Cooperation from state agencies varied widely though, in the end, all but one provided most of the requested information.

Maine has a law that keeps offending teachers' names secret, making it the only state that refused to disclose cases of sexual misconduct to the AP. The three cases the AP found in Maine were made public in widely circulated news reports.

Once AP reporters collected all the disciplinary records, they began to get as much detail as possible on cases of alleged sexual misconduct. Their secondary sources included court, police and prison records and state sex offender registries, as well as various news accounts on the cases, including the AP's.

The reporters were then asked to input their findings into a database.

If the state took an action against an educator following an accusation of sexual misconduct, then that person was included in the AP's count.

All the educators were disciplined for doing something sexual, inappropriate and unprofessional. Many were charged criminally and 1,390 cases resulted in a conviction.

A very small minority of cases, including a couple of dozen involving prostitution, had no direct connection to either schools or to children. But they did involve sexual misbehavior and since education officials punished the teachers for those actions, they made it into the AP count.

In some cases, the allegations didn't result in criminal prosecution. But the states typically through their education departments took action, most often in the form of revocation, suspension or denial of a state teaching license. Sometimes states accepted the surrender of a teacher's license after an accusation surfaced, or as part of a plea deal.

Once reporters entered the teachers in the database, reporters and their editors in each state double-checked the information.

Finally, a team of editors went through the database case-by-case, eliminating several dozen cases in which it was possible to view the alleged misbehavior as non-sexual.

Sex offender tries to castrate self
ASSOCIATED PRESS
10/23/2007

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- A convicted sex offender tried to castrate himself with a fillet knife, apparently after having an urge to offend again, according to a police report.

The 59-year-old man removed one of his testicles Sunday night and flushed it down the toilet. The other testicle was severely injured.

The man, who was not identified in the police report, called a friend for help and police and paramedics found him bleeding profusely when they arrived. Police said he was expected to survive.

The man told police he was feeling the urge to touch and hurt children, the (Springfield) State Journal-Register reported Tuesday, and wasn't trying to kill himself but was trying to stop that urge.

Police said his sex offense occurred in 1984. He was required to register as a sex offender after that but was not required to register now.

Spokesman Sgt. Pat Ross said Tuesday the department was not releasing information on the incident because no crime was committed.

New York - State's Obsession with Shrinks is Growing NY Post
New York - The state has granted 6,600 new mental-health licenses under a new law requiring regulation of psychotherapy.
Until two years ago, anyone could hang out a "psychotherapist" or "psychoanalyst" shingle and charge people to hash out their hang-ups.
Now, anyone who gets into people's heads without state permission can be busted for practicing without a license.
In addition, consumers with complaints about their shrinks can report them to the state for investigation.

Bentzion Klein said...

Everyone involved is from Monsey but the vehicular homocide took place in Lancaster, PA.

http://www.thejournalnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20071024/NEWS03/710240398/1019

Sheriff's candidate Tim O'Neill yesterday accused Rockland Sheriff James Kralik and his jail chief of helping get a Monsey man transferred to the county facility rather than serve his time for vehicular homicide in Pennsylvania.

Although a Pennsylvania judge signed an order allowing Klein to serve his term at the county jail in 2005, O'Neill argued that Kralik benefited politically with the Monsey Hasidic Jewish community's bloc vote.

O'Neill said the county jail illegally accepted Klein as an out-of-state inmate, which New York State officials confirmed yesterday, telling the jail to stop taking inmates from outside New York.

O'Neill said he has written the U.S. Attorney's Office asking for an investigation into the Klein case, claiming mail fraud and that Kralik misused his position for political gain.

"The sheriff should not be lobbying other states to bring prisoners to Rockland County," O'Neill said. "It is illegal, an unnecessary liability and cost to county residents, and it raises many serious issues and concerns about the way Kralik runs his department."

Kralik and Clark said O'Neill falsely claimed county taxpayers paid for Klein's nine-month stay in the county jail and that he didn't serve his full sentence of one to two years.

They said the jail accepted inmates from other facilities that paid the costs. The jail has raised $500,000 since 2001 on inmates who were transferred by judicial orders to the jail from within New York and out of state. Clark estimated $35,000 of that money came from out-of-state prisoners like Klein and several from Arizona.

Klein's synagogue, Congregation Ezer L'yehudah of Monsey, paid the $26,000 cost of Klein's nine-month stay in the county jail, according to jail vouchers.

Klein received four furloughs totalling 13 days from a county judge for religious and personal reasons.

O'Neill argued that if not for Clark's lobbying of Pennsylvania officials, Klein would have served his sentence in that state and not become a burden to Rockland taxpayers.

Klein was convicted of causing the death of his friend and business partner, Jacob Weisz, 48, of Monsey, in 2004.

Klein, then 24, pleaded guilty to homicide by vehicle. Klein had a history of reckless driving and lost his license to drive in New York, but got a new one in Pennsylvania with a postal box address.

Before Klein's sentencing, O'Neill cited a letter to the judge that Clark wrote extolling Klein's virtues in the Monsey community.

O'Neill also cited a Pennsylvania prosecutor's assertion in a court document that the judge violated Pennsylvania law by sending Klein to the Rockland jail.

John Caher, a spokesman for New York State Corrections Commission, told The Journal News that New York state jails cannot take in out-of-state inmates and the Rockland facility acted illegally.

O'Neill cites "whistle-blowers in the county jail" for exposing "systemic corruption and malfeasance in the community service program."

"After over 40 years at the Sheriff's Department, James Kralik is using the department to reward his political friends and garner votes," O'Neill charged.

O'Neill said the most recent example of preferential treatment involved Brooklyn resident Joshua Frankel, who had been sentenced to 10 days of community service last month.

O'Neill said Frankel was assigned to work at a synagogue under the control of a "Rabbi Horowitz."

O'Neill said the rabbi also was allowed to pick up Frankel, breaking protocol since jail officers take people to their assignments or watch them work.

O'Neill didn't know the rabbi's first name. Clark and Gentillo said O'Neill was referring to Rabbi Abraham Horowitz, a jail chaplain.

O'Neill said he wanted the Frankel case investigated by the state Attorney General's Office so correction officers could be interviewed on whether the rules were followed.

By the way, When Reb Yaakov Kamenetsky OB"M heard that the Monsey Treetop tester decided not to abide by the "teh'kiaas-kaf" that he gave to Mr. Rosenberger, he stated you can't rely on him for Shatnez testing.

Meal Mart / Alle
Kiryas Yoel

They do NOT use ANY Rubashkin.

Others are using Rubashkin as raw material because they can't schecht enough to meet demand.

Other chicken producers do not supplement with Rubashkin but they may have moshiachist shochtim which according to Rav Elyashev & others are a problem since those types of Lubavitchers have a din of kofrim.

There are food processing companies that make finished products with OU glatt meat or chicken. They do not indicate on the label who they source meat from.

To fress or not to fress, that is the question

Williamsburg men fressing kigel and kishke on the street with teriyaki sauce dripping down their beard, what a pretty sight. Aren't there enough fresseries on Lee Avenue without a Mobile Oichel B'shik Unit?

Some hate the new food truck, and obviously some love it, the guy wouldn't have so much business if nobody wanted it. Williamsburgers have been protesting the food truck since it started, yet business keeps getting better. If it is so wrong to have a food truck in Williamsburg, and if the Rabbonim have so much power over their people, then why does anyone have to protest against it? Just tell the people it is usser and they will stay away. Right? Why is it so difficult to deal with such a minor nuisance in the tightly controlled Williamsburg neighborhood? Could it be that people have had it with the word 'NO' already and are just doing whatever they want?

One thing this proves for sure, people like their fress more than their Rabbonim. You can tell people whatever you want when it comes to voting for a specific candidate and they will listen. However, come between a guy and his potato kigel and you lose big time.

Seminary to offer child molester certification for rabbis

Seminary to offer child molester certification for rabbis




By Rabbi Lamech Somayach Meshumad Meshubach

Mashgiach Ruchini, Yeshivah Aishes Eish HaTorah

Special to MeshumadMeshubach.blogspot.com







“We want our kids to have the same upbringing we did,” Said Moshe Karliner-Stanislov, a parent attending the PTA at a local yeshiva school. The parents were quite clear about wanting their Jewish traditions continued at a recent ceremony in the Brooklyn rabbinical school Torah Vodas. This was the idea behind a certification concerning pedophilia at the academy which gives a highly prized ordination and also teaches grades K to 12.


“Unfortunately, pedophilia has been going on as long as society has been around,” said Goldie Rosenberg, a social worker for a Satmar school. “This certification is a great step in the right direction.


The head director of Torah Vodas, Rabbi Yisroel Belsky, gave the address outlining the unofficial school position and why they were offering the endorsement.


“Many of the adults who graduated from this school have fond memories of a Rebbe or teacher who took them aside and showed them the secrets of this world as taken from the holy Shaas and they want that same advantage to their kids,” he said. “By offering a certification in regards to pedophilia, we can ensure everyone learns about sexual interactions at an early age and under proper supervision with their rebbe,” he said.


Another parent also relayed his own fond memories of Rabbi Belsky offering him a ride home and then taking him to the house of Rabbi Yehudda Kolko from nearby Yeshiva Torah Temimah for a little rabbinical-three-way sex.


“That day was the start of my life and the preparation I need for my Bar Mitzvah. It set me up for a lifetime of internal conflict which gave explosion to my book about chronic masturbation and made me a millionaire. If it weren't for my emotional problems I would not be the celebrity I am today,” said visiting Jewish writer Philip Roth.


An upcoming graduate of the ordination program gave a valedictorian where he went in depth with an explaining about the new outreach yeshivas and Chabad being very persistent in encouraging their students to go to the mikveh for spiritual purification.


“You know they discovered that old adage about the mivkeh being where all the dicks and assholes hang out when he limps into Kablat Shabbat during Lecha Dodi while holding his rear end and grimacing. They will never leave the religion at that point, and then they can start in on bulimia,” Said Rabbi Levi Kranz.


“The only thing that can make a man more dedicated, is an adult convert who has a bris with metzizah b'peh as an adult,” Said Kranz, in reference to a controversial form of child abuse that involves a rabbi putting his mouth on the penis of a newborn, that is sometimes done in a prayer hall, and sometimes in privacy in the rabbis study.

http://www.tzemachdovid.org/gedolim/jo/tpersonality/rrice.html

The rabbis of Germany, however, had become aware of the growing number of Jewish emigrants leaving for America, realizing that they would be facing many challenges to their religion in the new country. Worse, there was no spiritual leadership to help them withstand the temptations of their new environment. Consequently, in 1840 Rabbi Rice was prevailed upon by his teachers and colleagues to go to America as the country's first ordained rabbi.

Rabbi Rice arrived in New York late in 1840, finding total chaos in his new country. There were no qualified rabbis in the country at all; yet thousands of Jews were already living in the United States, and every boat brought new arrivals. It was a perfect set-up for charlatans. Anyone wanting to make an easy dollar claimed to be a European rabbi and discharged rabbinical functions. As Rabbi Rice later wrote: "In this country, men who have studied neither Bible nor Talmud have assumed the title of 'Rabbi,' donning the rabbinical cap on their heads in the same way that Napoleon placed the crown on his head." (Too may moden day comparisons to list).

It was suspected that lard was melted and mixed into oil sold as pure olive oil. Rabbi Rice published notices calling the attention of the Jewish public to this fact, advocating that mashgichim (supervisors) be appointed to oversee the production of the oil. When Reform spokesmen answered Rabbi Rice and attempted to show that consumption of such oil even with lard was permissible, they found that they had more than met their match. In a series of scholarly articles, Rabbi Rice completely refuted their position. (The OU currently "supervises" adulterated oil.)

An idea of his feelings while acting as rabbi in Baltimore can be gained from a letter he wrote to his revered rebbe, Rabbi Wolf Hamburger in Fuerth: "I dwell in complete darkness, without a teacher or companion . . . The religious life in this land is on the lowest level. Most people eat foul food (forerunners to Rubashkin) and desecrate the Shabbos in public." (Heinemann's appliances?)

Why is the Rubashkin family not listening to the takkana that was written many years ago?

Rav Weissmandel from Nitra said...

http://www.daashakohol.com/archives/177

In a Letter form the Freirdeker Rebbe, Rubashkin was ordered by the Freirdeker Rebbe that he must have a full time, constant Mashgiach Tmidi, type of Hashgocha.

Rubashkins meat store in Borough Park, not only does not have any Mashgiach Tmidi, it has absolutely no Hashgocha at all, whatsoever on the Rubashkin butcher store.

As far as we know, this the only butcher store in all of Borough Park that has no Hashgocha at all.

Rubashkin has been ignoring the Freirdeker Rebbe’s orders, for him to have a proper Hashgocha, for the past 58 years, to date.

Someone actually did confront Rabbi Weismandel and asked him how he can be sure that he is getting weismandels meat if there is no Hashgocha in Rubashkins Store.

It was before Pesach, so he also asked Rabbi Weismandel if he can consider Weismandels Meat from Rubashkins store to be Kosher Lepesach, if it’s coming from Rubashkins store with absolutely no Hashgocha at all.

Rabbi Weismandels reply was:

“I don’t give any Hechsher on Rubashkins Store, if you want to be assured that you are getting my Authentic Hechsher and that the store is pesachdik, get it at the Kolel Store instead”

It seems that it’s not only Rubashkin, but also Rabbi Osdebah’s CHK, that is also going against the Freideker Rebbe’s horaah

If you read the letter you will see thats its a directive of all nesiei Chabad from the Alte Rebbe and on!

Good Question said...

http://www.daashakohol.com/archives/177#comment-8377

I really don’t understand Rabbi Weismandel. Rubashkin brings into his store zaitlach and they cut and pack it in the store and put lables with RW name or brand. This is called in the industry an "unauthorized hechsher" and the only thing he has to say is speak to Mr. Rubashkin!!! Is this a reliable Rov that doesn’t care his name is used on products that are lav davke under his hechsher? Rubashkin has many other hechsherim who guarantees this is his meat?

The Rubashkin’s warehouse in Brooklyn where all the shipments come to from Iowa and the orders for all New York stores, including CH stores and caterers are going out from - has no Hashgocho.

Why should a warehouse need a Mashgiach?

The answer is:

Because its Rubashkins.

It is a known fact to many people including the CH beis din that they change labels in this warehouse.

Even the mexican who prepares the orders knows that.

There are testimonies from eye witnesses who saw the label changes and or heard the shiping manager saying it.

In the summer people saw in a store in the mountains how the fellow (a frum guy) takes meat that came in bulk from rubashkin, cuts the meat to smaller sizes and wraps them on small trays, and then puts a label as he needs.

He had a few rolls of labels, shor habor, aaron’s best, weimandel, and it was to this store worker discretion which label to put on the meat.

Sound almost like shevach meat in monsey.

The problem is that the same is being done in Iowa where they process the meat.

A mashgiach once repeated a story that meat which was shechted in south america for rubashkin, and was flown in by plane to Iowa before kashering (72 hours), when it arrived, the mashgiach noticed that according to the shipping papers, the begining of shechita was more than 72 hours before.

The mashgiach called the rov hamachshir who is not a lubavitcher to ask what to do?

While he is talking to the rov hamachshir on the phone, that rov called the rubshkins to send someone to the lot where the meat is to tear off the labels so when the mashgiach comes he will not see the papers wnymore. and Khach hava.

The mashgiach was naive to think that the mexican worker did it on its own, till someone else who works there told him that he saw one of the brothers (rubashkin) telling the goy to do it.

When the mashgiach came to ask rubashkin why he did it, he was told that the rov told him so, and the next morning the mashgiach was fired!

KGB. NKVD. it is not in russia, its in IOwa and Crown Heights.

People are fooling themselves that they get shor habor in CH stores or at weddings etc. you get what the mexican goy decided that it is shor habor. and you pay for your foolishness not for a better hasgocho.

It's also possible that the idiocy that goes on today (i.e., kollel entitlement, out-of-control chareidim in Israel, delusional welfare-dependent chassidim, jackass "gedolim" making the most preposterous statements, same jackass "gedolim" targeting the pettiest inanities to ban, blanket rabbinic and parental support of unrealistic marriage expectation by unworthy, uneducated boobs, the train-wreck adherence to a certain rabbi in israel, the astonishing shortsightedness of those who perpetuate an unrealistic, counterintuitive method of dating for marriage, a total lack of ahavas yisroel by rabbinic leadership, corrupt batei dinim, the crass commercialism of yiddishkeit, chumros being presented as halacha, the promulgation of ridiculous segulos, wealth worship by yeshivas and mosdos, godol worship and dogmatic insistence of rabbinic infallibility, proliferation of outrageously redundant non-profits, so-called "gedolim" WHORING their so-called "gadlus" to promote rip-off tzedaka organizations, halcyonic paeans to undeserving sperm lottery winners, should I keep going?) didn't happen years ago.

We have a godol-crisis.

A court in Haifa, Israel, on Sunday sentenced David Goldner, 41, to three years in prison after he confessed to desecrating more than 300 Jewish graves in hopes that Arabs would be blamed. The spray-painting of the Jewish gravestones with anti-Israeli slogans received widespread publicity, coming just after the discovery of the desecration of a Jewish cemetery in Carpentras, France, on May 10. Also charged in the Haifa incident was Gershon Tannenbaum, 32, who also confessed.

His sentencing has been put off pending A psychiatric examination. ...

Arrested in Bali, Indonesia, four months ago, Pearlman, 53, is being held in Orlando without bail on federal charges of bank fraud. His trial is scheduled for March, but could be delayed since investigators are working on additional charges related to a $317-million investment scheme run by Pearlman's company, Trans Continental Airlines.

His 8-by-16-foot cell, which ordinarily would house two inmates, is furnished with bunk beds, a toilet and sink. He eats kosher meals, which he described as TV-dinner type meals that are better than regular jail fare.

Like O.J. Simpson, Pearlman says he wants to find the real perpetrators of the crimes he has been accused of committing.

Vanity Fair published a report claiming Pearlman was a sexual predator who took advantage of the teenage boys in his bands.

"Mainstream" kashrus people have gone from dismissing Rabbi Shain in mildly demeaning ways to outright nastyness & slanderous name calling. The closer you get to exposing them the more hostile they get. Now they are doing it to Rabbi Wikler too because he refuses to go along with the lies of the establishment.

Even Rabbi Yosef Eisen was the target of a hatchet job after he spoke against a certain fraudster rav hamachshir.

I hope Rubashkin and the other OU pet violators get exposed real soon.

R' Yudel,

I have friends who are taken aback that I refuse to eat Rubashkin.

They are asking some good questions.

1. Have you taken your video & other evidence to the hashgochos?

RYS: ARE YOU KIDDING? WHICHE ONE? Rabbi Brodie or Rabbi Weismandel who is earning $200,000.00 @ year..etc

2. If the hashgochos cannot be trusted for some reason, why have you not publicized what you have like posting the video here?

RYS: What about the PETA video-Do you see the kashrus issues-Did any of your "HASHGOCHAS" do anything about it? How did they allow it at all, Why when "Shoichet" inspected the place "with an appointment" during the period of the PETA video-Rubashkin did not do those same thing potraid on the Video?

3. They claim they heard from kashrus industry people that you lost the debate on the radio with Rubashkin & his machshirim. Is there an audio file of the debate on the internet or at a phone number that we can listen & decide for ourselves?

RYS: The Radio host did NOT allow me to be part of the debate, it's also alledged he got them to advertise on his show & that he wouldn't allow me to respond etc.
They had on Rabbi Genack who admitted he did not know the particulars & he had to leave the show early. Rabbi Zishe Blech also admitted he doesn't know what is doing at the plant -BUT HE IS PLANNING TO VISIT ON BEHALF OF RABBI WEISMANDEL. Rabbi Edelstein stated he takes no responsibility for the plant .....SO YOU HAVE ALL YOUR ANSWERS.

WAKE UP & SMELL THE COFFEE-YOUR SO CALLED "friends" ARE A FRAUD.

Dr. Bernard Rollin said...

http://oreaddaily.blogspot.com/2007/07/not-everything-is-kosher-at-so-called.html

Dr. Rollin is a distinguished professor who received his Ph.D. from Columbia University (1972). He is the author of numerous articles and books, including The Unheeded Cry: Animal Consciousness, Animal Pain and Scientific Change and Farm Animal Welfare. He is one of the leading scholars in the field of animal consciousness, and he has given more than 1,000 lectures around the world. He writes,

“When I was a boy learning the precepts embodied in the Jewish tradition, I was taught that the suffering of living things—tsaar baallei chaim—is morally and religiously intolerable. … What is depicted in this Rubashkin video is a mockery of these precepts, and a disgrace to Orthodox Judaism. … The drooling, the vocalizing, the manifest distress [depicted in the video] all serve to demonstrate that animal handling procedures at that abattoir are well below the threshold for acceptability. … In this video … the animals suffer while conscious for prolonged periods, in one case over two minutes. … In the same vein, the evident insertion of the meat hook to increase bleeding is both inhumane and a violation of the principles of kashrut. The ripping out of ear tags before the animal is unconscious is equally morally and religiously illegitimate. The vocalization and struggling after the cut is made speak for themselves and evidence suffering and a callous disregard for that suffering that should be abhorrent to and condemned by all observant Jews.”

Not So Kosher said...

http://oreaddaily.blogspot.com/2007/07/not-everything-is-kosher-at-so-called.html

Among the explosive charges made by Rabbi Shain:

1. I photagraphed at AGRI an animal that was still very much alive (after shechita) & they shot it in the brain right away & it was used as a kosher animal. It is an accepted practice by Rabbinical certifiers NOT to use such an animal.

2. Rubashkin’s so called “Bais Yosef” meat is all a “sham”. The RUBASHKIN Certifier is of the stated opinion that all of their meat is “Bais Yosef” & that nobody really knows what is or is not Bais Yosef meat. (FYI contrary to Dayan Kohn BaisYosef means “no lung adhessions whatsoever”.) RUBASHKIN commonly send to caterers so called Bais Yosef meat for Sephardim and there will be 1 or 2 pieces marked accordingly “Bais Yosef’ & the rest isn’t Bais Yosef”. … Their so called Bais Yosef meat is a consumer sham! including the beef & veal certified by Rabbi Hatchuel.

3. The system at RUBASHKIN is that non-Jews do the physical “nikur” [removal of forbidden fats] which is then checked by the “Mashgiach” [rabbinic supervisor]. The Certifier was shown that the “Mashgiach nikur” physically can’t handle the load and some meat goes by without being checked. He responded “there isn’t enough full time work for 2 people, only for 1 1/2 people & we can’t hire half a person so we’ll leave it with one Mashgiach till there is enough work for two full time people”.

4. The quality of RUBASHKIN’s cattle is the cheapest available in the market (per USDA inspector, “low grade”) yet they have the highest ratio of “Kosher, Glatt, Bet Yosef” (including their veal) than most others. [Low-grade cattle normally have significantly higher levels of non-kosher and non-glatt than high-grade cattle.]

5. RUBASHKIN commonly switches labels, as it was found on numerous occasions that on top of a nonGlatt label was stuck on a Glatt label, ‘cause they were short for an order. The Non-Jewish RUBASHKIN truck drivers have in their possession a box of different kosher labels to put on to boxes of meat as per a store’s request (I have 1 of those boxes of labels that I saw fall off a truck).

6. The lung in an animal is an organ that constantly expands & contracts in the cavity of the animal. The lung is a relatively free hanging organ attached to the animal mostly by the tissue & muscle of the trachea, and slightly to other areas by some membranes. Once one cuts the supporting tissue & muscles around the kunah [lung] it is basically detached easily from the animal with a good pull or via a meat hook.

Immediatly after shechita while the animal is still in the schechita position, a non-jewish worker (the Shochet leaves the room) utilizes an 8 inch (approx) knife to enlarge the opening around the trachea & also cutting into the “diaphragm area. He then use a meat hook to grab & pull the trachea a few inches & cutting off the trachea near the lung.

The concerns are that by making the cut along the diaphragm area & around the trachea one may (in)advertently also puncture the lung. The knife is inserted quite deeply into the neck area thereby risking cutting the sirchos of the upper lung lobes. (Simlah Chadosha.)

Another serious concern is that by hooking & pulling on the trachea it will rip and dislodge the sirchos / adhesions that go from the lung to the Ribs and / or also some sirchos on the lung itself and then having the $$ opportunity to call it Glatt or at least kosher.

After the above procedures, it is practically impossible to check the lungs properly for Glatt or sirchos.

7. The “Weinberg pen” allows a shechita munachas, which is the preferred method of shechita throughout history. The design of this pen’s head restrainer is not proper. The metal bar should come way below the neck’s shechita area. The Shochet is obviously afraid of nicking his knife on the metal bar, so he must do a controlled shechita with 7-8 back & forth knife strokes (a possibility of shehiya exists). An experienced Shochet utilizes 1-2 Back & forth knife strokes. Because of this “controlled cut” the Shochet obviously is not severing all of the arteries, requiring an unacceptable “2nd cut”.

Severing all neck arteries causes an almost immediate total collapse of the animal.

8. Some 6-7 months ago a Shochet from a prominent “Torah community” was invited to see the beautiful “Rubashkin system” of shechita. He was impressed by the “show”. Now when the Shochet saw the PETA pictures he was aghast! While he was there they weren’t ripping tracheas, animals weren’t walking, thrashing around after the shechita etc. “I was taken for a ride! How can I believe “anything” I saw?” The Israeli Rabanut’s representatives claim they never saw many of the unacceptable items depicted on the PETA pictures.

Does anyone know what's going on with some scandal that broke with klaf?

Anonymous said...

The "Heeb'n'Vegan" blog cites an interesting article about shechita, titled "If Cows Could Talk, Like Balaam's Donkey," by vegetarian Chaviva Ner-David in the July 9 issue of The Jerusalem Report.

Ner-David begins by talking about how repulsed she was by a cow's suffering at a kosher slaughterhouse she visited. She writes that "the way shechita is carried out today cannot be called kosher in terms of both the spirit and the letter of the law. The Shulchan Arukh tells us that an animal about to be slaughtered should not see the animal being slaughtered before because fear will cause the animal to flinch and therefore be rendered a treifa because the
knife will not cut smoothly. This rule (as well as other ways this cow's suffering could have been minimized) was blatantly ignored by the slaughterhouse I visited that day."

According to many halachic authorities, shechita is meant to minimize the animal's pain (Rambam in Moreh Nevuchim 3:26). In the past, shechita was a more humane way of slaughtering animals than was common in the surrounding cultures in which Jews lived. This is no longer true. Though stunning prior to slaughter has become the norm in non-kosher slaughter, halachic authorities do not allow stunning. In addition, though not an absolute
halachic requirement, rabbinic authorities and the Israeli rabbinate require that the cow be inverted during shehita, which is not the common position in non-kosher contexts.

Truth be told, if we consider complying with the requirements of tza'ar ba'alei chayim a requirement for meat to be considered "kosher," today's food industry renders all meat production non-kosher. Until recent times, animals were raised on private farms, under
relatively humane conditions, and when the time for slaughter arrived, it was possible, at least, to treat the animal with dignity. Today, mass production has taken over. Under these
conditions, it is impossible to treat animals in a way that would comply with the laws of tza'ar ba'alei chayim. This is why all Jews concerned with Jewish values / law should consider vegetarianism.

Food: Top Turkeys
Oct. 29, 2007 issue
As Thanksgiving approaches, a panel of 24 tasters sampled eight turkeys and rated them on flavor, texture, moistness and “overall appeal.” Surprisingly, frozen birds often bested fresh ones.

1. Rubashkin’s Aaron’s Best PRICE: $1.99 per pound TO BUY: Most supermarkets

This frozen kosher turkey is “very moist, with excellent texture"

2. Walter’s Poultry PRICE: $120 for 14 pounds TO BUY: deananddeluca.com

Virtually tied for first place, this “very tender” heritage bird is sweet and flavorful

3. Butterball PRICE: $1.49 per pound TO BUY: Most supermarkets

While some thought this self-basting bird was moist and good, others found it bland

4. Jennie-O PRICE: $1.49 per pound TO BUY: Most supermarkets

Tasters dubbed this self-basting bird “middle-of-the-road” with mild, good flavor

5. Empire Kosher PRICE: $2.69 per pound TO BUY: Most supermarkets

The panel agreed it had “good moisture and texture,” but that it lacked flavor

(This is very surprising since Rubashkin beef is notorious for being very low grade as rated by the USDA & in taste)

Every time economists and Wall Street executives think they have acknowledged the full extent of the losses from the meltdown in real estate mortgages, more bad news turns up.

In a new report to be issued today, the Joint Economic Committee of Congress predicts about two million foreclosures by the end of next year on homes purchased with subprime mortgages. That estimate is far higher than the Bush administration’s prediction in September of 500,000 foreclosures, which in itself would be a tidal wave compared with recent years.

Sales of existing homes fell 8 percent last month ... the steepest monthly decline since the National Association of Realtors began measuring combined sales of condominiums and single-family homes in 1999.

The sales numbers were worse than expected and contributed to a steep decline in stock prices

The decline was nearly double what analysts had forecast.

“The bottom is just falling out,” said Bill Hampel, chief economist of Credit Union National Association. Mr. Hampel said the outlook for the housing market remained grim. “Next month will be about as bad as this month,” he said.

Median home prices also fell in September, with the median price for a single family homes dipping to $210,200 from $223,700 last month. Overall, the median price fell to $211,700 from $224,400 in August.

Inventories also remained on the rise. Overall, homebuilders hold a 10.5-month supply at the current sales rate, up from a 9.6-month supply in August.

Schmetterer is as credible as Applegrad said...

http://www.thejewishweek.com/viewArticle/c41_a627/News/Short_Takes.html

Rabbi Avrohom Mondrowitz has remained in Jerusalem for 23 years since leaving the country amid allegations that the former counselor and yeshiva principal molested four boys.
A spokesman for DA Charles J. Hynes on Wednesday said a request for the return for Rabbi Mondrowitz came in February, shortly after the State Department and Israel’s Ministry of Justice agreed to broaden the spectrum of crimes under which extradition from Israel will be allowed.
“As soon as the treaty was changed allowing extradition on the charges he faces, we moved to
have him extradited,” said the spokesman, Jerry Schmetterer.
The request was first reported last week in the New York Daily News.
The exact charges on which Rabbi Mondrowitz is suspected are contained in a sealed indictment, Schmetterer said.
Hynes has been under consistent pressure from victims’ advocates who speculated that he was afraid of losing support among Orthodox voters if he put Rabbi Mondrowitz on trial. But Schmetterer said, “We have always said over the years that we never lost sight of the case, but the treaty didn’t allow for extradition.” He said Israel’s Ministry of Justice was now “working hard” to fulfill the request.

An advocate for victims of abuse who has been closely monitoring the Mondrowitz case, Amy Neustein, said she felt “exhilarated” by the prospect of an extradition. “I hope this will be the beginning of healing for the Jewish community, and after 20 years of political agitation from advocates and victims, justice will finally prevail,” she said.

No Religious Haven From Abuse
New study finds Orthodox women are sexually victimized as much as other American women are.

by Debra Nussbaum Cohen
Staff Writer

Despite the widespread impression in the Orthodox world that sexual abuse doesn’t happen within its precincts, or happens less than in the “outside world,” a report in the November issue of the journal of the American Psychiatric Association says that Orthodox Jewish women suffer as much of it as other American women do.
Twenty-six percent of respondents in a study about the sexual lives and attitudes of married Orthodox Jewish women — 55 percent identifying as Modern Orthodox and about 45 percent as fervently Orthodox — indicated that they had at some point suffered sexual abuse.
That figure is on par with the 25 percent to 27 percent of American women in general, without regard to their marital status or religion, who have reported
in numerous studies that they had been sexually abused.
The new article also says that fervently Orthodox women are more likely than Modern Orthodox women to have experienced sexual abuse, to have experienced it multiple times and to have experienced it the first time before age 13.
Fifty-eight percent of fervently Orthodox women who participated in the study reported experiencing sexual abuse multiple times, according to the article, compared to 39 percent of Modern Orthodox women.
Overall, 16 percent of respondents said they experienced their first sexual abuse at or before they were 13 years old, which is less than the approximately 22 percent of American women who have reported in other studies that they were sexually abused at that age.
Among the ultra-Orthodox respondents, 20 percent said they had experienced abuse by the age of 13, while among the modern Orthodox respondents it was 12 percent.
“It’s very important to note that this is just a slice,” said Rachel Yehuda, a professor of psychiatry at Mt. Sinai Medical Center in Manhattan, and one of the paper’s lead authors. “We only studied married women who agreed to be studied, and we have no idea of how representative these women are. More importantly, we didn’t study single women or women who decided not to be Orthodox anymore.
“Nonetheless, the observation that this is not less of a problem here is important. ... One can’t walk away saying Orthodox Judaism is protecting women against abuse,” said
More women who became religious — ba’alei teshuvas — also report having been sexually abused at some point compared to those raised in Orthodox homes, according to the study of married observant women.
“We’re not the first to show that heightened religiosity may be a response to trauma,” says Dr. Michelle Friedman, a psychiatrist in Manhattan who is the article’s other lead author. Living an Orthodox life is viewed as “a whole lifestyle of perceived protection and meaning, of clarity and order.”
The article, which focuses just on sexual abuse, is based on information drawn from a broader study of Orthodox married women’s sexual lives and attitudes that Friedman and Yehuda conducted about four years ago. Respondents ranged in age from 19 to 58, and were required to report regular use of a mikveh, or ritual bath, in order to be included in the findings.
This was the first study of observant Jewish women’s sexuality, said Friedman. Though face-to-face interviews with randomly selected people on such topics are preferable, even getting Orthodox women to fill out anonymous questionnaires “is a hard thing to do,” she said. “You have to get to the sample, and it requires trust. For them to answer something that’s a study, people have to believe that it’s useful for them, that it’s necessary.”
The researchers advertised the study in synagogue bulletins, Jewish organizations, newspapers, Jewish listservs and Web sites, and through medical offices, like pediatricians and obstetricians/gynecologists, whose practices include many Orthodox women.
They did not count as abused respondents those who said that their adult experiences had been consensual even if uncomfortable, or said that they had abuse threatened but not carried out, or who experienced something that might not be strictly considered abuse, for example, someone who reported that a stranger fondled her rear end on the street.
Of the 380 respondents, 208 of them defined themselves as Modern Orthodox and 172 described themselves as ultra-Orthodox.
The study found that the ultra-Orthodox women were more likely to report that their husbands had forced them to have sex — 5 percent compared to 1 percent of the Modern Orthodox women.
This could be in part because fervently Orthodox women sometimes view their sexual role differently than Modern Orthodox women do, says Bronya Shaffer. Shaffer teaches marriage education classes to brides, and provides counseling to women about marital and family issues.
Shaffer, who is a member of the Lubavitch community in Crown Heights, has also had clients from the Williamsburg, Borough Park and Monsey chasidic communities, and found that “all of them were extremely sheltered up until marriage. They really had no clue about men and women or about how babies are made. All of them went into marriage knowing that part of their responsibility was to defer to their husband’s sexual needs, and none of them had any sense of themselves as sexual beings,” she said.
The article hopes to illuminate the need for greater sensitivity to sexual abuse among those who might treat its victims, and also to the reality of its existence in Orthodox Jewish communities.
“Religious life is not necessarily protective of the human condition,” said Friedman. “In theory, it’s clearly forbidden. But in practice it happens, and people suffer.”

I was a student at Toras Emes in BP. Heshy Nussbaum (later of Toronto & Winnipeg) used to practice his sexual abuse in front of the entire class. It took the Yeshiva's leadership about a year until they made an announcement in a very oblique way regarding the abuse and finally firing him. Morris Mandel, Elias Schwartz, and Arnold Wolf created an environment where fear pervaded, so sickos like Nussbaum were able to practice their disease. In my mind they are as responsible as Nussbaum.

Rabbi Elias Schwartz , spiritual leader of the Young Israel of Bensonhurst, NY and Dean Emeritus of Yeshiva Toras Emes - Kaminetz in Brooklyn, NY, is recognized as one of the pioneers of post-war yeshiva education in the United States. In his over 5 decades of service to the yeshiva movement, he served as President of the National Association of Yeshiva Principals (Torah Umesorah), and became a mentor and consultant to numerous teachers and principals in day schools across the United States and Canada. Rabbi Schwartz is the author of V'Sheenantam, popular thoughts on the weekly sedra, and has addressed Jewish audiences and teachers' groups on a wide range of educational and hashkafa themes.

Toras Emes-Kaminetz & Ohel said...

http://lukeford.net/blog/?p=753

I receive emails from Melvin in Brooklyn:

Because of the many accusations filed with CPS (Child Protection Services) by these people this woman [Rosa aka Rose] lost 10 of her 14 children to foster care and adoption to Ohel. Ohel is a Jewish adoption agency. Ohel is a very large money making organization selling Jewish babies to childless parents for large sums. Three of her children went up for adoption and are now adopted by Jewish families.

Rabbi [X] used his influence with the court (family court) to destroy her character. He went so far as to have Ohel’s doctor accuse her of being a drug addict. He did not stop at anything. He was merciless with this woman. He destroyed her entire life. She is now slowly recovering from the damage this inhuman creature imposed on her. The court stripped her from her parental rights. Four children the court couldn’t grab away from her was because two of her children were over 18 at the time and two weren’t born yet.

I left orthodoxy because of the abuse I received from a Boro Park yeshiva. I was tortured by the assistant principal Rabbi Arnold Wolf. He used to pull my pants down and pattle me.It was called Mesifta Yeshivah Toras Emes, a highly regarded school. The principal, Rabbi Elizazar Schwatrtz was a cruel sadist. He used to pull my ears.

I know of other cases at Ohel where they broke up famalies and faremd out the kids to their rich donors in the 5 towns. look at their golf outings and fundraising farming out kids is a huge buisness. Joan Hertz says on her website that she specializes in adoption. So first she breaks up the parents with here domestic abuse counseling then Ohel has the kids taken away and sent to some fostor family.

It may be an incorrect statement. I examined the original article and it seems I was influenced by Shmarya's take on it. Shmarya hints he doesn't believe Gary. I wonder if the victim disputes Gary's account.

Here's Shmarya at the end of August:

During this process, a blogger went to Gary Rosenblatt of the NY Jewish Week with details of the abuse, asking for advice help in getting Rabbi Eisemann away from kids. Rosenblatt did nothing. He tells Phil Jacobs today that he remembers an "anonymous" telephone call and no more. [But Rosenblatt, who exposed Rabbi Baruch Lanner's abuse, which is why the blogger went to him, covered up other abuse allegations – ike Rabbi Modechai Gafni's repeated abuse – and covered up for the rabbis who covered for Rabbi Gafni. And, in other cases, it is alleged that Rosenblatt simply turned a blind eye. His behavior here seems to lead credence to the idea that Rosenblatt is corrupt, and that his pursuit of Rabbi Lanner and the OU, even though justified and indeed morally mandated – was primarily done to settle private scores.]

Morris Mandel Suicide Hotline said...

Rosh Hashana 1992

by Harold M. Schulweis

I read an article in the Jewish press by Dr. Morris Mandel, a clinical psychologist who cites the following letter he received.

"Before I take my life let me write you for advice. I am Jewish, Orthodox and most unfortunately, homosexual. Talk of marriages thrust in my face as I am of marriage age. The only trouble is that I am running out of excuses. I have done much repentance and prayer to God but He does not hear my prayers. I am a sub-human creature. Life to me is hearing more jokes about homosexuals. My heart bleeds and I pray to the God of my fathers that He never again thrusts this poison into the House of Jacob."


There have been several scientific studies indicating an unusual prevalence of suicide attempts among homosexual persons. The recent report of the Secretary's Task Force on youth suicide projected that gay adolescents were two to three times more likely than their peers to attempt suicide. They accounted for more than 30% of completed youth suicides last year.

So what can be done? Perhaps not much.

However, that being said, these are my meager suggestions:

1. Write into the shtar borerin a clause that this Din Torah is subject to review by Beis Din X or Rabbi Y.

2. Network names of unscrupulous borerim. If you find out that the other tzad has chosen one, you might be able to then compel him to appear in front of a local Beis Din.

3. Not easy, but if you can, when you take a job or enter a contract, specify that all disputes will be adjudicated by Beis Din Z.

Any other ideas?

Would publicizing the names of unscrupulous borerim via a Web site be appropriate? That may be the only way those of us who live far from New York will be informed. Can it be done in a manner that will help others, but not be considered Lashon HaRah or subject one to the threat of lawsuits (in Beit Din or Arkaot)? If someone as knowledgable and sophisticated as the Rav SHLIT"A was victimized while trying to help fellow Jews, we ordinary Jews surely need protection!

State lawmaker vows to fight Kiryas Joel over records
October 24, 2007
Kiryas Joel – 1:17 p.m. -- Assemblywoman Nancy Calhoun vowed today to take the Village of Kiryas Joel to court over its refusal to respond to requests for public records.

Calhoun said she made the Freedom of Information Law requests of the village after she learned of allegations that the village had violated environmental and state rules in building an emergency services building, a women’s health center and new school on Bakertown Road. Calhoun, R-Blooming Grove, was seeking storm water plans and inspections of the sites.

A longtime critic of the village, Calhoun said she got only a promise that the village was reviewing her request but never actually received any documentation.

She said she would file a lawsuit against the village if no other entity would take on the issue.

Surrounded by area local town and village officials and Orange County Legislator Roxanne Donnery, Calhoun said she has information that KJ did not install underground drainage pipes before it built its emergency services building and it failed to install proper drainage for a new school.

She said she has submitted a Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) requet for the plans and continues to be stalled. “There is no respect for the law,” she said, noting other instances where the village was accused of constructing projects without necessary approvals.

Blooming Grove Town Supervisor Charles Bohan is a constant critic of the village. “We’re looking at a village government that calls themselves a government but are actually anarchists because they have no respect for the law,” he said.

But, while Kiryas Joel spokesman Ari Felberman said he would have to look into the allegations of deficient plans for the building, Calhoun’s threats of a lawsuit are just to gain attention, he said.

“It was all about grandstanding, not about resolving issues,” he said. “What else is new? This has been her MO forever.”

Felberman said if Calhoun wants to sue, “let her sue.” She said if does not get the planning documents under FOIL, she will pay to take the village to court and file an Article 78 proceeding against it.

The Mother of All Tax Hikes said...

UOJ has to stop Rangel & the Democraps.

http://republicans.waysandmeans.house.gov/News/PRArticle.aspx?NewsID=133

Memo: McCrery on "Mother of All Tax Hikes"
October 25, 2007

By Ways and Means Republican Press Office

FROM: Ways and Means Committee Ranking Member Jim McCrery

My Friends,

At a bipartisan Ways and Means caucus last night, Chairman Rangel outlined his long-awaited “Mother of All Tax Hikes” legislation. The basics of the package are simple: This is the largest individual income tax increase in history.

The bill will add a 4% surtax on Americans earning more than $150,000 a year ($200,000 for couples). That is on top of the scheduled expiration of the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts. So, under Democrats’ plan, over the next few years, the individual income top tax rate in the United States will rise from 35% to 44%. By way of comparison, the other 29 Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development countries – basically other developed nations - have an average top marginal tax rate of 35.7%. In fact, only five OECD countries would have higher top marginal tax rates in 2011 than the United States if the Democrats’ bill is enacted.

This crushingly high tax rate will affect approximately 10 million taxpayers directly - including those who report business income, like small business owners and farmers - but the damage will ripple throughout our economy. Because small businesses and family farms often pay their income taxes as individuals, this is a massive tax hike on the engine that drives job growth in this country.

In addition, the surtax is on adjusted gross income, not taxable income. This sounds like a technical issue, but it means that Rangel’s bill will erode the value of a series of tax deductions – including for mortgage interest, charitable giving, medical expenses, state and local taxes, and the standard deduction. And, because the surtax kicks in at $150,000 for individuals and $200,000 for couples, the bill creates a monster of a marriage penalty.

Chairman Rangel will claim that these tax increases go to provide tax cuts to 90 million Americans, but he is selling pure snake-oil. Many if not most of those taxpayers are getting a purely imaginary “tax cut.” Some of them are the roughly 20 million people that Republicans shielded with the Alternative Minimum Tax patch. Millions more are people who have benefited from the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts, and only get “tax cuts” if you assume that the 10% bracket, marriage penalty, and $1,000 per child tax credit will expire. Others, like single people who will now be eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit, are getting a tax refund from the government even though they don’t actually pay income taxes.

It will take time to analyze this bill and sort through the data, but we know from the start that the 90 million figure is pure hokum. In fact, before you know it more taxpayers may wind up paying higher taxes – and fewer paying less - under Rangel’s plan than they did last year.

Which brings us to the larger fallacy of the Democrats’ “paygo” system. There is no need to “pay for” protecting taxpayers from a massive AMT tax hike. The government never meant for the AMT to affect middle-class Americans, and we have a responsibility to make sure it doesn’t. By arguing that preventing this tax increase requires us to raise taxes elsewhere, Democrats are trying to lock Congress into a system where we are guaranteed to raise taxes by $3.5 trillion over ten years.

That’s right. $3.5 trillion. The baseline that the Democrats are using for “paygo” includes revenue from an “un-patched” AMT and from the tax increases that occur when the 2001 and 2003 tax laws expire after 2010. Together they total $3.5 trillion over ten years. If we play by the Democrats “paygo” rules, that is the size of the tax increase we are imposing on the American people. That will hurt our nation’s competitiveness and cost us American jobs. The Rangel bill is the first step down a road none of us want to follow, and I urge you to oppose it strongly.

Petition to Identify Anonymous Blogger Dismissed in Public Citizen Victory

WASHINGTON, D.C. – In a big win for the First Amendment rights of bloggers, New York Supreme Court Justice Marcy Friedman late yesterday upheld the right to speak anonymously and dismissed a petition by a Lawrence, N.Y. school board member to identify an anonymous blogger.

Upholding arguments made by Public Citizen, which represented the blogger, the court decided that the statements on the “Orthomom” blog were not actionable, in some respects because statements were opinion and in others because the statements were true. The ruling applied a balancing test that protects the right to speak anonymously online so long as the speech does not violate the plaintiff’s rights. Public Citizen established the test in a landmark 2001 New Jersey appellate decision, Dendrite International v. Doe.

The plaintiff, Pamela Greenbaum of Lawrence, N.Y., sought a court order requiring Google, which hosts the blog, to reveal Orthomom’s identity. The petition asserts that the blogger Orthomom, and others who posted comments on her blog, had accused Greenbaum of being a bigot and implied that she was anti-Semitic because of her position against using public school facilities and teachers for educational services that benefit children attending private religious schools.

Friedman, however, ruled that Orthomon’s discussion of Greenbaum’s votes were not implicit accusations of anti-Semitism, and that the comments posted by others who did use those words were only expressing their opinions, which cannot be the basis for a libel suit. The court agreed that an accusation of perjury can be defamatory but rejected the petition based on evidence that Orthomom’s claim that Greenbaum was making false statements was “incontrovertibly true.”

Because Greenbaum’s petition was so clearly lacking in merit, Friedman found it unnecessary to decide whether to adopt the Dendrite approach in its entirety, but described it as “persuasive authority.”

"This decision echoes the emerging national consensus approach to protecting anonymous speech online," said Paul Alan Levy, lead counsel for Orthomom.

Local counsel for Orthomom is Donald Rosenthal of Hartman and Craven in New York.

Jewish life doesn’t really need another Big Idea. It already has one, and it dates back thousands of years. Judaism gave the world the concept of monotheism, produced the Torah and a set of commandments and rituals that have sustained us as a people ever since, as well as the notion that we have a relationship with our Creator and are partners in repairing the world.

One big idea is enough. The challenge today is not to come up with another one but to fulfill our original role as “a light unto the nations,” not in the sense of superiority to others but rather as humble models, still and always dedicated to leaving the world a better place for our children than the one we inherited from our parents.

That’s an idea, and goal, that can and should keep us going forever.

Kosherfest, now part of Cultural Food New York (www.culturalfoodexpo.com/newyork), has much to celebrate as it heads into its 20th year as the largest, and now the only, kosher food and beverage trade show in the world, November 11-12, 2007 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.

Kosherfest unites with All Asia Food & Expo Comida Latina under the show’s new umbrella name, Cultural Food Expo New York, to offer the largest trade-industry marketplace for ethnic food. Kosherfest features hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of new and traditional kosher certified products; many of the Asian and Latin ethnic foods at the show offer kosher certification as well. Bringing an additional buying category to the event is the new organic pavilion, featuring certified organic products with appeal to the ethnic market. The event will also co-locate with the International Hotel/Motel & Restaurant Show over these two days, giving the foodservice market a one-stop shopping advantage; registration to any of these events includes access to all exhibits and programs.

[So great, people are going to get mixed up like last year and eat treif food]

According to Rubashkin hack Menachem Lubinsky who started Kosherfest 20 years ago and serves as co-producer with Diversified Business Communications, “Twenty years ago the number of kosher products was a small fraction of the 100,000 kosher certified products available to kosher consumers today. With an annual growth of 15%, you could say that kosher has made impressive strides in 20 years.

[This is a misrepresentation as Lubinsky sold it to them outright. Because they are a non-Jewish company, they don't give a darn about the treif mixups at the show. Our coward rabbonim who shnorr freebies from DBC are afraid to speak up in case DBC gets mad and cuts their purse strings]

Rav Shteiman's Heter to Sue Corrupt Agudah Fressers said...

http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/916353.html

Last week 15 kindergarten teachers suddenly appeared at the office of the Education Ministry ombudswoman. Their excitement was obvious as they handed her a sheaf of papers: the Tel Aviv Regional Labor Court decision barring the Agudat Yisrael nursery school network from firing them. Chairs were brought in from other rooms, and finally they told their story, the story of the women who created the first ultra-Orthodox labor union.

For this group of teachers, who represent many others, the court decision was a victory in their difficult four-year battle. While it is still too early to declare it a complete victory, it is certainly an important achievement. The Labor Court issued its decision about two weeks ago, in response to the network's request to dismiss six veteran kindergarten teachers and cut the salaries of six others. Judge Neta Roth wrote in her decision that dismissing older teachers because they earn more is unacceptable age discrimination, especially when "nothing was done to ensure their social rights after their retirement," as the ruling states.

The decision will undoubtedly affect the terms of employment of all 500 teachers in the network, which started sending dismissal letters to all teachers with more than 25 years of seniority four years ago. Many of them threw in the towel and left, but others, including the 12 teachers whose case brought about the present decision, sued the network in the Labor Court. They have worked since then by virtue of a court order, for minimum wage and with no social benefits.

A shattered taboo

The ultra-Orthodox educational network, which runs 360 kindergartens all over Israel, is part of the "recognized and unofficial" state educational network. It is almost fully funded by the state. Its managers constantly point to the network's severe financial deficit, as if that were an excuse to dismiss and exploit employees. Yosef Bienenfeld, the director of the network, argued last week that due to the deficit, which an Education Ministry report attributes to mismanagement, the ministry required the network to launch a recovery program. "In order to save the network, some people who will be hurt, but what can be done?" he says.

Judge Roth accepted the teachers' argument that the Education Ministry did not specifically obligate the network to dismiss veteran employees. "Agreeing to the request means tossing the appellants out on the street, leaving them with nothing after dozens of years of work," the judge wrote.

Bienenfeld already has said that the network plans to appeal the decision, but the teachers celebrated their victory with a large meal. After all, they have come a long way. In 2003, after they were dismissed, a large group of kindergarten teachers approached various rabbis, asking their permission to turn to civil courts. The community's leading authority, Rabbi Yehuda Leib Shteinman, let them do so. They later contacted a young, secular lawyer, Anat Shani, who agreed to work pro bono. In 2003, they obtained an order from the National Labor Court that preserved their jobs for another four years. Finally, in June 2007, their fight climaxed with the formation of their union.

The kindergarten teachers shattered a taboo in ultra-Orthodox society - fighting for one's rights. These women are all their families' sole wage earners, some are widows, and others are single parents. All have large families and worked devotedly for many years, when suddenly they were faced with the threat of dismissal, as if the rug were being pulled out from underneath them. Creating the labor union was a real fight for survival.

The initiative came from a group of several dozen kindergarten teachers who were determined to influence the decisions made under the recovery program. After they realized that the Agudat Yisrael's teachers union - where they had no representation whatsoever, as women and as kindergarten teachers - did not intend to help them, they decided to take action. The network argued in court that it is not halakhically acceptable for women to be elected and to represent workers, and therefore it is ignoring the organization. But the kindergarten teachers obtained rabbinic permission to form their union, and within a few weeks, more than 100 kindergarten teachers, both young and old, had joined their ranks.

The kindergarten teachers claim that the network persecutes those who want to join the union. Several teachers joined and later recanted, after they said that they, or daughters of theirs employed by the network, were threatened with pink slips.

Bienenfeld denies that teachers were pressured for joining the union, which "as far as I'm concerned, does not exist anyway." And yet, the Labor Court did indeed recognize the union as a representative organization (at least temporarily) and asked the Education Ministry and the network to include it in meetings on the recovery plan. One of the kindergarten teachers' demands, as presented at one of these meetings, was that they decide which teachers would leave as part of the recovery plan, and that departing teachers receive compensation totaling 150 percent of their salaries. The union says there are enough teachers interested in retiring with such reasonable terms.

Ministry waverings

It is not easy for a religious woman such as Yehudit Klein, the scion of a rabbinic family from the small Krachniev Hasidic sect, based in Rehovot, to lead a social campaign. But Klein, who becomes short of breath every time she begins talking about the injustice done to her, says she cannot remain silent any longer. Now 47, she has been working as a kindergarten teacher for the network since age 19. After her marriage, she moved to Be'er Sheva, where she opened her first kindergarten with the mission of bringing the weak population there closer to Judaism.

One might object to Klein's ultra-Orthodox worldview and her advocacy for the Agudat Yisrael movement, but when it comes to the network, she is undoubtedly an efficient and dedicated worker. She and her husband ran the kindergarten as a business, and sent its profits to the network. They handled registration themselves, and purchased the toys and equipment with their own money. The network's role was limited to transferring the budget from the Education Ministry.

Twenty years ago, her rebbe asked her to set up kindergartens for their Hasidic sect. She moved to Rehovot, where she opened kindergartens in the city's Hasidic neighborhoods. But starting 10 years ago, she says, the network hinted to her that it wanted to dismiss her.

"They spilled my blood with regular threats of dismissal, random salary cuts and inhumane treatment. It's abuse. This is not a matter only of a livelihood, but a blow to my professional dignity. I invested many years of work. I really tore myself apart when the kids were young, and thanks to me the kindergarten always thrived. And now that I'm older, they toss me out?"

Simha Bussi, a veteran kindergarten teacher and Klein's partner in leading the fight, is a mother of five children, including one who has Down Syndrome and hearing difficulties. Her kindergarten is located in Moshav Tslafon, near Beit Shemesh, where she lives. Bussi first took on the establishment in order to mainstream her son, a battle she won. With time, she learned to fight and hold her ground, she says. Bussi says she is in dire financial straits, and cannot buy food or clothing. This stems from her salary cut and dismissal, she says. "It's impossible to live this way, in financial anxiety," she says.

It seems that the chronic lack of jobs that characterizes the ultra-Orthodox sector gave Klein and Bussi's employers the impression that they could dismiss unwanted employees and hire new ones without a problem. After the regional labor court's decision and the judges' statement that the Education Ministry should supervise the kindergarten network, the kindergarten teachers began looking to the ministry, hoping it would assume responsibility for them. Ministry officials even have said off the record that they support the kindergarten teachers in their struggle.

But the teachers have had to drop even this distant hope. Several days ago, it came out that the ministry told the National Labor Court that it would conduct negotiations on a recovery plan only with the network, and not with the employees, and that it would not intervene in the network's decision to cut salaries to the minimum wage.

Despite their disappointment over the Education Ministry's response, Yehudit Klein says she and her friends intend to continue fighting for inclusion in the negotiations over their terms of employment.

Report: Militants using Google Earth to pick targets in Israel
By Haaretz Service

Militant Palestinian groups who have been launching rockets into the western Negev from the Gaza Strip have been using Google's popular satellite imagery program "Google Earth" to reconnoiter areas in Israel to be targeted for attack, according to a report in the British daily The Guardian.

A leading figure in the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades told the paper that his organization scans military and civilian sites, including the town of Sderot, through Google Earth.

"We obtain the details from Google Earth and check them against our maps of the city center and sensitive areas," the Al-Aqsa commander in Gaza, Khaled Jaabari, told the Guardian. The Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades is the military wing of Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah faction.

Jaabari, who is also known by his nom de guerre Abu Walid, also told the paper that the Palestinians have succeeded in improving the range of the Qassam rocket through the cultivation of sea salt.

The Palestinians are not the first to employ Google Earth for military gains. According to the report, British authorities expressed concerns that Iraqi insurgents were using aerial images from Google Earth to target British bases near the southern Iraqi town of Basra.

When queried about the use of Google Earth by militants, Google issued a statement saying "we have paid close attention to concerns that Google Earth creates new security risks. The imagery visible on Google Earth and Google Maps is not unique; commercial high-resolution satellite and aerial imagery of every country in the world is widely available from numerous sources. Indeed, anyone who flies above or drives by a piece of property can obtain similar information."

Amnon Levy's television program Screen Saver (Shomer Masach) claims that Haim Paskovich & Sons of Ashdod is importing frozen fish and replacing the sell-by dates with ones that are eight months to a year later.

The show was aired on Channel 10 television last night. Evidently Rafi Ginat's Kolbotek and cats in Tiv Taam's logistics center isn't the only consumer chronicle in town.

When Kolbotek attacked Tiv Taam for the second time in a year, the supermarket chain claimed that shots of cats eating meat meant for consumers were staged by disgruntled ex-workers. True or not, Screen Saver came across the fish case when two former Haim Paskovich workers leaked. The Screen Saver team planted a mole at the company.

On "Alon's" second day of work at Haim Paskovich, he documented on candid camera how workers at the plant would remove the sell-by labels from boxes of frozen fish that were near or past the deadline. The workers then affixed new labels to the boxes, extending the sell-by date by eight to 12 months.

Alon shot footage of the old labels being collected and bagged, presumably for destruction, and also filmed two veteran workers admitting that replacing labels was the norm at the company.

Eliezer Eisgrau said...

I was wondering when is Phil Jacobs going to do the story about Ha Rav Eliezer Eisgrau? It's about time he exposes one of the worst con men in Baltimore. This wonderful gentleman is a fan of the use of corporal punishment on the students at TI (Torah Institute).

The only thing most of us can figure is that Eisgrau has something on Moshe Heinemann, Yaakov Hopfer and Uncle Sheftie (Neuberger)? Sorry folks, I can no longer refer to these men as "rabbi". They are the opposite of being Jewish leaders or Torah scholars. If they were they would make ending sexual abuse a high priority.

Yehuda Seidenfeld was a student at Torah Temima. Is he a victim of Kolko? Maybe it explains his behavior and lack of empathy for his wife and children.

I ONLY STARTED RECEIVING SUPPORT 2 YEARS AGO, AND THE DIVORCE ONLY BECAME FINAL IN MAY 2,006,AND ONLY THEN B/C HE WOULDN`T PAY HIS LAWYERS AND HE WANTED TO KEEP FIGHTING TO PAY ME, OTHERWISE WE STILL ! WOULD NOT BE DIVORCED .DID YOU TELL YOUR READERS THAT THIS WOMAN SRATED WITH HIM WAY BACK WHEN ,AND SHE KNEW HE HAD A WIFE AND KIDS?1OF COURSE HE IS TOO BLAME JUST AS MUCH . HE IS A LOUSE AND WAS OONE TO BEGIN WITH, A BIG FAKE AND HYPOCRITE OF THE CENTURY FOR SURE. AND BY THE YOU FORGOT TO MENTION THAT HE OWES ME ALMOST $200,000 FROM AN ISRAEL JUDGEMENT FOR 4 1/2 YEARS OF NON SUPPORT , AND THAT WE ARE GOING BACK TO COURT NOW B/C HE HAS NOT EVEN PAID ME AND REFUSES TOO , THE $60,000 NEVADA SETTLEMENT, AND THAT HE HAD HIDDEN ASSETS AND INCOME WHICH HE WITHHLED BOTH FROM THE COURT AND THE IRS, NOR ABOUT HIS OFFSHORE BAHAMAS BANK ACCOUNT OR , HIS PARTNER IN CROOKED BUSINESS, SAM LEBOWITZ WHO HAS HIS OWN OFFSHORE ACCOUNT IN CYPRUS! I HAVE ALL THE PAPERS TO PROVE IT, WITH HIS SIGNATURE, WHICH I RECALL SHOWING YOU SOME AND OFFERING TO MEET WITH YOU AND YOU GIVE YOU COPIES ,WHICH YOU DIDN`Y HAVE TIME FOR?!
BY THE WAY , WHEN THEY ASKED HIM IN COURT IN KAZ. IF A CERTAIN SIGNATURE WAS HIS ON THE QUESTIONABLE DOCUMENTS , HIS ANSWER WAS `I DON;T RECALL SIGNIING THEM` !
ALL THE TIME HE WAS LIVING WITH HIS RUSSIAN SLUT CALLING HER HIS WIFE , WHILE STILL BEING VERY LEGALLY MARRIED TO ME,NOT EVEN HAVING FILED FOR DIVORCE. WHAT WILL YOUR READERS THINK OF SUCH A PERSON NOW?! BY THE WAY , I DID MENTION TO YOU, BUT YOU OF COURSE DID NOT PRINT ,THAT I SENT MARK NUMEROUS FOOD PACKAGES WHILE HE WAS IN VLAGAVISHINSK ,AT MY OWN EXPENSE ,AND SPOKE WITH HIS LAWERS MANY TIMES TO CHECK UP ON HIM. AT THE TIME I WAS UNAWARE THAT THIS WITCH WAS SO INVOLVED AS A FEW MONTHS BEFORE HE WAS ARRESTED , WHEN ASKED ON THE NEVADA STAND ABOUT THIS WOMAN ,HE CLAIMED THAT THEY HAD SPLIT UP SEVERAL MONTHS BEFORE. THIS WAS OF COURSE A LIE, ONE OF MANY THAT HE WILL HAVE TO ANSWER FOR IN COURT SOON , IT IS CALLED PURGRERY .
I ALSO TOLD ABE YOUR FACT CHECKER , WHEN ASKED ,THAT I HAD BORROWED MONEY FROM A LOAN FUND HERE IN ISRAEL,[SOMETHING I USUALLY DO QUITE OFTEN TO GET BY ],WHICH I RECALL TELLING YOU AS WELL, BUT YOU SEEM TO HAVE WRITTEN SOMETHING ELSE ENTIRELY !

IN FACT YOU ASKED IF YOU COULD HAVE A COPY OF THE WEDDING PICTURE ALONG WITH A FEW OTHERS FOR THE ARTICLE ,AND I SAID I HAD TO THINK ABOUT IT. LATER I LET THE CAMERAWOMAN WHO WAS ASSIGNED TO TAKE PICTURES FOR THE CASE ,TAKE A PICTURE OF THIS AS WELL AS OTHERS ,INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH , NONE OF THESE WERE PUT IN WITH THE ARTICLE!
AND BY THE WAY ,I RECALLL GIVING YOU SOME MATERIAL FROM A JEWSIH BOOK, AND IT SAID THERE THAT G-D PUNISHES PPL.TO WAKE THEM UP AS HE DOES NOT WISH TO DESTROY THEM. I STAND BY WHAT I SAID, SOMEONE WHO IS SO CRUEL AND MEAN TO HIS WIFE AND FLESH AND BLOOD WILL GET WHAT HE DESERVES.

HE LIED ON HIS EMPLOYMENT CONTRACT WITH GOLDEN CLAIMING HE WAS DIVORCED [HE NEVER EVEN TOLD ARNA -DUCAT HE WAS MARRIED],AND PUT THIS WITCH DOWN AS HIS `COMMON-LAW-WIFE`, AGAIN WHILE STILL BEING MARRIED TO ME OF COURSE, AND NO CHILD SUPPORT OR ALIMONY BEING PAID . ALL THIS SAYS ALOT ABOUT A PERSON , NOTHING GOOD , NO MATTER THEY BE JEW OR NON-JEW. WHATG DO YOU THINK OF SUCH A PERSON WHO HAS NO MORALS OR SCUPLES?
SOMEONE WHO IS BROUGHT UP AS A RELIGIOUS JEW , EVEN WITH A TUMULTOUS CHILDHOOD, THEN MAKES SOMETHING OF HIMSELF , GOES TO HELP HIS FELLOW JEWS IN THE FORMER U.S.S.R. TO TEACH THEM ABOUT THE BEAUTY OF JUDAISIM OF THE SABBATH ETC..[AND WE HAD LIMITED KOSHER FOOD OPTIONS THEN] , BUT LATER THROWS EVERYTHING THAT HE ESPOUSED TO BE IMP. AND PRECIOUS TO HIM AWAY FOR NAME , POSITION , MONEY AND WOMEN , THERE IS SOMETHING TERRIBLY WRONG WITH SUCH A PERSON ,ALL AROUND! FOR SOMEONE WHO SUPPLIED THE JEWISH COMMUNITTY WITH KOSHER MEAT , FOR HIM TO THEN GO AND EAT NOT ONLY NON KOSHER MEAT , BUT PORK NO LESS!, WHICH EVERYBODY KNOWS JEWS ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO EAT , TO DESECRATE THE SABBATH IN PUBLIC ANYWHERE AND EVERYEWHERE AND TO LIVE WITH A NON JEWISH WOMEN WHO HE IS MARRYING AND CLAIMED, [DEPENDS WHICH ARTICLE AND TAX PAPERS YOU READ, AND FOR WHEN ,HE CHANGED THE INFO FROM YEAR TO YEAR OR DOCUMENT OR BUSNESS CONTRACT] HE FELT HE WAS `MARRIED TO` ALREADY . PLUS EVERYTHING ELSE UNDER THE SUN HE HAS DONE AND CHEATED IN BUSINESS AND BRIBES.YOU CAN`T GET WORSE THAN THAT BY JEWS.
EVERY DOG , MALE AND FEMALE HAS THEIR DAY ,AND THEIRS WILL YET COME, VERY SOON I PRAY ,AND THEN PPL. WILL SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A PERSON SPITS ON THE TORAH -BIBLE LIKE HE HAS AND EVEN THOUGH G-D HAS SENT HIM COUNTLESS WARNINGS , THEY MEAN NOTHING TO HIM ,MARK STILL THINGS HE CAN GET AWAY WITH IT ,ALL OF IT , OR RATHER PAY-BRIBE HIS WAY OUT THE WAY HE TELLS IT !
AT LEAST HE SHOULD GIVE PROPER AND SUFFICIENT SUPPORT FOR ME AND THE CHILDREN, AS HE HAS ALWAYS HAD THE MEANS AND THEN SOME !
BUT I WILL SAY, THANKS FOR THE INFO SUPPLIED BY `MARK` HIMSELF IN YOUR ARTICLE , ABOUT HIM TELLING YOU HOW HE BRIBED PPL. AND ABOUT HIS OTHER INCOME ,THAT HE HAD LEFT OUT,HIS LAVISH VACTIONS [FORGOT TO MENTION THE DIAMOND ENGAGEMENT AND STUDDED DIAMOND WEDDING BAND SHE WEARS] WHEN HE REFUSED TO GIVE US A PENNY , NOR PAY FOR SLEEPAWAY SUMMER CAMPS FOR THE CHILDREN [AN ACCEPTED SUMMER EXPENSE IN ORTHODOX JEWSIH FAMILES/CIRCLES.ONE THAT IN FACT HE ENJOYED FOR MANY YEARS HIMSELF.]CALLING IT A LAVISH EXPENSE THAT WAS NOT OF THE NORM.
Such a recent article OF these admissions should really help me in court next month .

Boycott Rubashkin said...

http://www.daashakohol.com/archives/177#comment-8433

Rubashkin is very unhappy with the new source of beef from David Elliot and there is rumors that Rubashkin may consider droping the CHK all together.

The demand in CH and among the shluchim for David Elliot and Wise organic beef is growing, especially for the reason that it’s done only by Lubavitche schochtim and bodkim that they can relay on them and not on CHK, the owners are very nice and honest people and the quality, known from the chickens, is higher.

Shame on Lakewood Fressers said...

At a recent distribution of chicken and meat for Yom Tov in Lakewood, the guy in charge announced that there was no more Rubashkin chicken or meat left, and then added that this not bad for an oilem that officially will not touch Rubashkin! He had just sold a container or more worth of the stuff!

Chazir Treif Lard With OU Certification said...

http://yudelstake.blogspot.com/2007/10/oh-no-whip-topping.html

The Aida Yerushalem made their Whip Topping at Rich's in Buffallo, NY area for many years. They brought in their own "palm-oil". Their Palm oil doesn't get shipped on the same vessel as Lard & Tallow etc as there are serious kashrus concerns. The Heimesh Hashgochas-Gefen, Hadar etc make their whip topping right after the Aidas production, utilizing the same kosher palm oil.

For the past 2 years the Richs Company moved their Topping production facility to the Mid-West of the USA. The Aidas & the Heimish productions were produced for the past 2 years with the standard Palm-oil imported to the USA that is commonly carried in the same ship with Tallow & lard. The palm oils & Tallow are transported in tanks that are heated.

The Aida was recently questioned "how do they allow it"? The Aida has decided after 2 months of prodding to stop the production.

Very Interesting Report on Rubashkin said...

http://www.daashakohol.com/archives/177#comment-8436

Besides, Rubashkin trying to blackmail Rabbi Osdoba, that unless Rabbi Osdoba takes off the hechsher from David Eliot and Weiss Meat, that then Rubashkin will retaliate against Rabbi Osdoba by throwing out Rabbi Osdoba, out of Rubashkins….

In addition, there is another factor involved.

Rubashkin is aware of the unofficial opinion of Rabbi Osdoba’s Political_TEAM, (Boimelgreen, Eichler, Katzman, Reitzes and a few others), who have unofficially come to the conclusion that Rubashkin is SO wild and crazy, beats up people, makes endless machlokes and is OUT OF CONTROL, that they feel Rubashkin has now OUTLIVED HIS USEFULNESS and should be discarded, like a used tissue.

While the team can still USE this meshugener to do their dirty work for their Rav, by having Rubashkin doing all the nastiest things against Rabbi Schwei BESHLICHUSO of his rav, while blaming it on the Vilder Meshugener "out of control" Rubashkin…..

Yet the community consensus seems to be growing, that Rabbi Osdoba himself, ends up getting HURT because of all of Rubashkins "good deeds" and has caused a great political loss to Rabbi Osdoba and a very major loss of respect and loss of followership to Rabbi Osdoba - ALL BECAUSE, Rabbi Osdoba has embraced and supported and COVERED UP, for this wild convicted CRIMINAL, Rubashkin.

Therefore, they feel that politically, it’s in the best interest of their political party to throw away Rubashkin, in a desperate effort to REHABILITATE the Image of their rav, who covered for all of Rubashkins criminal activity, until now.

Rubashkins (off the record) response to Rabbi Osdoba:

"One Hand washes the Other".

"You drop me, I’ll drop you".

But it’s only a threat by Rubashkin. Rubashkin will NOT drop the CHK, because Rubashkin needs the CHK to make themselves LOOK LIKE "Lubavitcher" to the Lubavitch community.

Rubashkin does not need the small business of a small handful of CHK customers, who would purchase, whatever they purchase, regardless of CHK or non-chk (as evident by the majority of non-chk milk products in EVERY GROCERY).

But Rubashkin needs the IMAGE, on the inside of Lubavitch, to give him the imaginary Kovod, that he is Lubavitch Meat, (although most Lubavitchers don’t trust Rubashkins any more, anyway).

99% of Rubashkins is consumed by non-lubavitchers and the vast majority of his shochtim are not lubavitchers, but Rubashkin still wants to FEEL LIKE, he is a "Lubavitcher" and the CHK gives him that false image and that false feeling.

Gerer mesifta losing students at the aproximate rat of ONE BOY A WEEK. Time to bring back leizerowitz. Send them Colmer and Mondrowitz as a bonus and in no time flat those sorry kids whose parents have no sense to protect them will be too sore to sit. Olefsky ran a gay whorehouse all these years and yet dares to prominently promote himself at every aguda and ger event. That big ass should show us what he is realy made of, apologize for the coverup and carpet sweeping of all these years, and then we might stop nipping at his heels. Bis Dave, this was your making, curb yourself, clean up the poop, beg for forgivness and mercy and live a life of sincere contrition. But you'll do that together with Margo and the other Aguda bastards when pigs fly! The Brisker was right when he refused to join the aguda. Look at the morons running this show! And ger pruports to stand for holiness and self denial of base pleasures. If Leizerowitz woulda spent more time screwing his lady he'd be molesting less boychiks.
