Kucinich: I Saw UOJ !

From an anonymous UOJ Groupie...Gotta luv it! Thanks!

Kucinich: I Saw UOJ!

Wednesday, October 31, 2007 11:51 AM

By: Jim Meyers

In one of the lighter moments of Tuesday night's Democratic presidential debate, candidate Dennis Kucinich claimed that he had seen UOJ “ and was moving his campaign office to an alleged UOJ landing site - Roswell, New Mexico.

Moderator Tim Russert of NBC News, prefacing his query by saying, This is a serious question, said to Kucinich: The godmother of your daughter, Shirley MacLaine, writes in her new book that you've sighted UOJ over her home in Washington state, that you found the encounter extremely moving, that it was a silent and hovering, that you felt a connection to your heart.

Now, did you see UOJ?

Amid laughter from the audience, Kucinich replied: I did. It was [an] unidentified big-mouthed flying object, okay. It's like “ it's identified. I saw something.

Now, to answer your question, I'm going to move my campaign office to Roswell, New Mexico and another one, an extra, to New Hampshire.

And also, you have to keep in mind that Jimmy Carter saw UOJ, and also that more people in this country have seen UOJ than, I think, approve of George Bush's presidency.

It might have struck some observers as ironic that Kucinich made his UOJ claim on the same day that he questioned President Bush's mental health in light of comments he made about a nuclear Iran precipitating World War III.

Russert continued his questioning by addressing Barack Obama:

The three astronauts of Apollo 11 who went to the moon back in 1969 all said that they believe there is life beyond earth. Do you agree?

Obama did not take the bait, instead responding: I don't know, and I don't presume to know. What I know is there is life here on earth and that UOJ says we're not attending to life here on earth.

Rumor has it that the gerer rebbi wanted to come parshas toldos to toronto, and after he heard that on that motze shabbos is the melave malka for the gerer kolel in boro park he decided not to go to toronto, but there is a possability that from belgium he will come to new york for tuesday- wednesday parshas toldos, you never know with him till he is on the flight, so we will just have to wait and see if he comes to NY.

The hebrew letters of Rubashkin in gemmatria add up to 668. This is equivalent to the word "sarachta" which could mean either "you are corrupt" or "you stink".(or "tisrach", in the future tense). I think both definitions are appropriate in this case.

The Rubashkins figure that when consumers see all the fancy logos such as the OU, KAJ and Weissmandel, people will salivate to buy their products, like Pavlov's dogs. I mention dogs because Rubashkin products should only be fed to dogs, like all neveilos and treifos. The meat is clearly unfit for human consumption, much less Jewish consumption. You have to be crazy to put your health, and your family's health, at risk by eating and buying that crap. You are not only destroying your neshamos but also your physical well being.

The $200,000 licensing fee that Weissmandel extracts from Rubashkin will not be enough for him if he has to keep coming up with excuses for them. He should insist on a percentage of the sales, just like other noted celebrities, who usually get 10% royalties. Not to mention their PR guru, Menachem Lubinsky, of UnKosherFressFest fame, who keeps on shilling for them.

Eventually, these frauds will all be exposed. In the meantime, to all you Rubashkin fressers, ruff ruff!

Interesting that UOJ has put up a picture with a caption about Mr. Rosh Yeshiva - a name that we hadn't heard in a while.

Also, the Eisgrau post - the old comments were right after the Mr. Rosh Yeshiva/Tuvya thing.

It seems interesting that this is being brought up again. Is UOJ planning something??

Madness as Method

Published: October 24, 2007

Fred R. Conrad/The New York Times
Maureen Dowd

Dick Cheney’s craziness used to influence foreign policy.

Now it is foreign policy.

But the vice president may have hit on a devious tactic used by his old boss Richard Nixon.

President Nixon and Henry Kissinger liked to use madness as a method. In 1969, Nixon told Kissinger to caution the Soviet ambassador that Nixon was “out of control” on Indochina, and could do something drastic.

Three months earlier, as Anthony Summers wrote in “The Arrogance of Power: The Secret World of Richard Nixon,” “Kissinger had sent that very same message by proxy when he instructed Len Garment, about to leave on a trip to Moscow, to give the Soviets ‘the impression that Nixon is somewhat “crazy” — immensely intelligent, well organized and experienced to be sure, but at moments of stress or personal challenge unpredictable and capable of the bloodiest brutality.’ Garment carried out the mission, telling a senior Brezhnev adviser that Nixon was ‘a dramatically disjointed personality ... more than a little paranoid ... when necessary, a cold-hearted butcher.’ ” All of which, his aides later reflected, was kind of true.

Cheney seems to enjoy giving the impression that he is loony enough to pull off an attack on Iran before leaving office — even if he has to do it alone, like Slim Pickens riding the bomb down in “Dr. Strangelove” to the sentimental tune of “We’ll Meet Again.” He has even begun referring to his nickname, Darth Vader, noting that it “is one of the nicer things I’ve been called recently.”

Darth shook his fist against Iran again on Sunday, calling Tehran “the world’s most active state sponsor of terror” and vowing “serious consequences.”

You guys sure do have good memories. The story with those YTT & Weinfeld connected party animals happened a very long time ago.

It is true though that the Weinfeld bum is not what he's cracked up to be. When he was going out with his future wife, the neighbors saw him making out on the front porch when it was late & dark. It's not expected from someone learning full time in beis medrash, but then again he's not supposed to be fantasizing about all sorts of forbidden women 24/7 either. And did he not think someone would see him making out in plain view? He's got to either be a moron or a heck of an az ponim.

How many haymishe guys are taking advantage of this?

See the map here:


... to highlight the misuse of farm subsidies in the United States, the Secretary turned to a map of Manhattan, the New York City borough in the most densely populated county in the United States where land sells for $1,500 a square foot. Each red dot on the map represents a farm subsidy payment made under the 2002 farm bill with the largest circles representing quarter of a million dollar payments.

DETROIT - A celebrity jeweler who put diamonds on celebrities from Sir Elton John to Kanye West pleaded guilty Wednesday to falsifying records and giving false statements to investigators looking into a multistate drug ring.


Terms of the plea deal call for Jacob Arabov of New York to serve up to 46 months in prison and pay a $2 million penalty, U.S. Attorney Stephen J. Murphy said in a news release. No sentencing date was immediately set by U.S. District Judge Avern Cohn.

In return for the guilty plea, prosecutors agreed to drop money laundering charges against the man known in the hip-hop world as "Jacob the Jeweler," said Arabov's attorney, Benjamin Brafman.

Lakewood Talmid said...

UOJ, please don't insult us like that. There is a mayseh avos siman lebonim. Yishmoel was a rapist, ganav & murderer. Muhammed was a pedophile, listan mezuyan & mass murderer.

Our Avos were kedoshei elyon. Our members who stray into child abuse are a minority.

Recently, our leadership has been hijacked by poseurs only interested in their own derrieres but they cannot get away with it forever as sheker does not have raglayim to stand on.

Lst night I showed a choshuva rosh yeshiva (the real thing) the fraud hazmona issued by Belsky as well as the kol korays against him.

Belsky then lost one of his admirers and I can assure you that slowly but surely sanity will be restored.

I have NOT heard YET ONE Rosh Hayeshiva stand up and pronounce once and for all that they were wrong on handling this issue.

"I have NOT heard YET ONE Rosh Hayeshiva stand up"

The one exception is Rav Yosef Blau, Mashgiach Ruchni of RIETS, who condemned YTT in public, although it was at a forum where he was forbidden from mentioning their name, but anyone not living in a cave knew who it was.

I was personally told by a Brooklyn rosh yeshiva that he hopes UOJ keeps slamming a list of people including anyone connected to YTT. He tells that to everyone on a personal basis but he's too scared to get up and make an announcement.

Lakewood Talmid said...

The commenters are correct as I happen to know a number of roshei yeshiva who quietly support UOJ. I think the problem is that they are also opposed to the current composition of the Moetzes and what is emanating from there. These are younger roshei yeshiva mostly who are on thin ice if they declare a mutiny. The only ones who can get away with open criticism, and they do not shy away from it, are R' Shmuel Berenbaum & R' Zelig Epstein. Until his recent petira, Rav Schach ztl did the same. These zekeinim are pretty much ignored by those running the fief anyway. The younger ones however would probably be driven out of town and lose everything.

Come on UOJ, if there were no risks involved, you wouldn't hesitate to identify yourself.

Lakewood said...

UOJ & chaverim,

It's true that the Agudah is shuldiks, with many of their members not even worthy of cleaning up Rubashkin cow manure but we cannot slam every independent rov who doesn't risk it all to make a public outburst. I know for a fact that some of them who support UOJ have been doing their own behind the scenes work. Some have put pressure on Hynes and one rosh yeshiva made it his pet project to rein in on Mondrowitz. Did you notice the recent Jerusalem Post article mention that Mondrowitz is now in computers and no longer with the College? The rosh yeshiva showed me the letter he wrote to the college imploring them to get rid of that monster in their midst.

Some rabbonim have been advising parents they know to stay clear of any yeshiva with abuse problems. I also wish they would do it with a 120 decibel loudhorn but I don't know that they are mechuyev to put their own families at risk as long as hitmen directed by Belsky and other gangsters are in power.

Dear Mr. Jew,

As the Agudah is diametrically opposed to the direction you are headed with child abusers, we regret that we cannot allow any disruptions or UOJ baseball caps at our Fresser events.

Far be it from me to deny your role as self styled prophet or savior, but Rabbi Perlow is still uncomfortable with anything internet related or from the other side of McDonald Ave.

Hannibal said...

UOJ doesn't have to do much at the Fresser convention. The Agudah usually self-destructs when they lose themselves over him.


Hannibal, son of Hamilcar Barca, (247 BC – ca. 183 BC) was a Carthaginian military commander and tactician.

Hannibal is universally ranked as one of the greatest military commanders and tacticians in history. Military historian Theodore Ayrault Dodge once famously called Hannibal the "father of strategy"

Col. Norvell de Atkine, US Army (Retired) said...


The Agudah will never win the war with Hashem & UOJ. They should surrender already.

French Putz from Le Marais said...

If dee Agudah wants any advice on surrendering, zey should come down to discuss it over a treif steak dinner.

We French are experts at surrender.

Rubashkin Fresser said...

Those steaks at Le Marais really are geshmack and not just because they come from Postville.

The ex-mashgiach played the tape for independent rabbonim & the State Supreme Court judge showing how Belsky & the OU are covering up for the milchig margarine.

Milchig marinade for a bassar becholov steak is exceptionally tasty!

Legal Question said...

Can any of the immoral acts committed by Margo & Belsky be classified as racketeering under the RICO statute which seems to stretch quite widely?

Maybe something can be pursued with the US Attorney, thus bypassing the weasels at the DA's office.

Wall St. To UOJ - Go away! said...

Stock prices plunge; Dow drops 300 By JOE BEL BRUNO, AP Business Writer
NEW YORK - Wall Street plunged Thursday, pulling the Dow Jones industrial average down more than 300 points, as investors found themselves confronted by two uncomfortable prospects: an end to interest rate cuts and a slowing economy.
Mindful of a warning from the Federal Reserve Wednesday about inflation, the market nervously watched the price of oil, which passed $96 a barrel overnight for the first time before dipping on profit-taking. The Fed, which cut interest rates a quarter point, said in a statement that inflation remained a concern, and oil's ascent to another record raised the possibility not only that the Fed might stop cutting rates, but that it might even consider raising them if inflation accelerates.

"UOJ" - "The Un-Orthodox Jew" said...

From USA Today...My sentiments as well........

..............."Rate cuts can't undo bad mortgage loans, which should have been slowed much earlier. They can't stop Washington's unconscionable borrowing or ease a troubling rise in protectionist sentiments. They have no ability to keep oil prices low or calm the world's most restive regions.

What's more, there may not be many more cuts to come. Even if inflation appears to be in temporary remission, it is a real consideration. The steadily falling dollar, rising oil prices and robust growth in developing markets all threaten inflation. By cutting rates, the Fed increases the risk.

Throw all this together, and Bernanke's job may soon be less a balancing act than an exercise in crisis management. Perhaps then investors will once again see the Fed as a place to look for monetary policy, not for economic salvation".

steve said...

This was my response to Harry Maryles who called Avi Shafran one of his "favorite people" and who villified UOJ and this blog:


This was the response of one of your "favorite people", Avi Shafran, after Kolko's arrest last December:

"Why would we have comment about the arrest of an individual? Because he was an employee, more than 30 years ago, of one of the camps we run (that have had thousands of employees over the years)? I don’t think that requires comment on our part.
We are not even a party anymore to any lawsuit filed against the accused, as I understand it. The suit of the accuser who included Camp Agudah in his action (John Doe #1) has been dismissed (without prejudice, I believe, so it can still be refiled, but hasn’t been)."

How about showing some sensitivity to the countless victims, many of which were from Camp Agudah? And don't tell me that Shafran wasn't aware of the allegations that stemmed from the camp. The bais din that was convened in the 80's was brought about by victims of the camp. Also, look at his response to the NY Magazine article of June '06. In a nutshell, his response to the reports of sexual abuse in the community was that we are not as bad as the Catholic Church.

Now before you call UOJ a villain, I challenge you to name one individual that he wrongfully accused. As for the way he runs his blog, at least he has a noble goal and mission, which is to rid klal yisrael of molesters and corrupt leaders. I cannot say the same for your blog whose purpose seems to be simply to foment sinas chinam amongst klal yisrael. All you do is take a news item and try to twist it into another anti-chareidi rant in which you stereotype and label groups of people. At least UOJ backs up his words with action, as evidenced by the fact that six molesters that last year were in chinuch are now either in prison, awaiting extradition, under indictment, or have been fired. The man was matzil nefashos and as you know if one saves one Jewish soul, it's as if he saved the world. How many nefashos has your pathetic blog saved? All you've accomplished is to stir up old arguments between chareidim and MO's, thereby promoting sinas chinam, and delaying the coming of Mashiach.

So Harry you and all your corrupt "favorite people" can continue to villify UOJ, just like they did last year at their convention. Your words are empty and meaningless because we can see right through your transparent hypocrisy.

These people who may all be Brenner relatives were involved:

But the tensions between the two ultra-Orthodox communities are real. Ilan Shmueli, 35, runs “American Pizza” in Beit Shemesh A. He opened in the stricter B in August 2005, based on his work in a Deal, N.J., pizzeria.

After six months, he said, “the problems started — they began to throw things at us: tomatoes from the market, hot oil, gasoline.” Some ultra-Orthodox from B were customers, but “the Hasidim, who were a bit nuts,” started demonstrations, which became violent. His sin was to sit men and women in the same restaurant. “I went to their rabbi and I said, ‘Look, it’s like the war of Gog and Magog,’” Mr. Shmueli said. “And he said, ‘You might end up dead.’”

He closed at a big loss, then reopened in A last December with his father’s help. “Lots of very pleasant ultra-Orthodox people come in,” he said, especially new American immigrants.

Rabbi Pinchos Scheinberg said...


However, the investigation file in Alex’s case and a pair of confidential French diplomatic cables obtained by The New York Times confirm the accounts of inexplicable and at times hostile official behavior described by Alex and his parents.

“The grave deficiencies or incoherence of the investigation appear to result, in part, from gross incompetence of the services involved in the United Arab Emirates, but also from the moral, pseudoscientific and political prejudices which undoubtedly influenced the inquiry,” the French ambassador to the United Arab Emirates wrote in a confidential cable dated Sept. 6.

Most infuriating to Alex and his mother, Véronique Robert, is that police inaccurately informed French diplomats on Aug. 15, a month after the assault, that the three attackers were disease-free, the diplomats say. Only at the end of August did the family learn that that the 36-year-old assailant was H.I.V. positive. The case file contains a positive H.I.V. test for the convict dated March 26, 2003.

“They lied to us,” Ms. Robert said. “Now the Damocles sword of AIDS hangs over Alex.”

So far the teenager has not tested positive for H.I.V., but he will not know for sure until January, when he gets another blood test six months after the exposure.

A doctor examined Alex the night of the rape, taking swabs of DNA for traces of the rapists’ sperm. He did not take blood tests or examine Alex with a speculum. Then he cleared the room and told Alex: “I know you’re a homosexual. You can admit it to me. I can tell.”

Alex told his father in tears: “I’ve just been raped by three men, and he’s saying I’m a homosexual,” according to interviews with both of them.

The doctor, an Egyptian, wrote in his legal report that he had found no evidence of forced penetration, which Alex’s family says is a false assessment that could hurt the case against the assailants.

The LIES of Paysach Krohn & Fartscroll said...

Brenner has provided information to Krohn regarding the historical background of many selections in Krohn's books

Rabbi Paysach Krohn (brother-in-law of Rabbi Ephraim Boruch Bryks Halevi http://www.theawarenesscenter.org/Bryks_Ephraim.html who is married to Brenner's daughter) in Around the Maggid's Table R. Paysach Krohn, p.98. Rabbi Brenner has provided information to Krohn regarding the historical background of many selections in Krohn's books (p.15, The Maggid Speaks: Favorite Stories and Parables of Rabbi Sholom Schwadron, Shlita By Paysach J Krohn).
I present to you a retelling of the false story found on a website for a Bukharian youth group that has received funds and sponsership from at least one mortgage broker company related to Rabbi Brenner with long quotes from Krohn's book. I will follow the lie by the actual truth:

The following amazing true story illustrates the importance of correcting others in the nicest way possible:
Being a Rabbi in a small town, far from any city with a large Jewish population is often a lonely and thankless job. True, there is much to accomplish, but the challenges that need to be overcome on the way to solidifying a minyan of shomrei Shabbos (Sabbath observers), building a day school, or convincing people to uphold and maintain standards of kashrus and family purity always seem to be uphill struggles. More often than not, a Rabbi in an area with a limited number of Jewish inhabitants gets the feeling that the Jews in the community are simply not on the same wave length as he is.
One such rav was Rav Lipa Brenner, who had been inspired to enter the rabbinate by his mentor in Yeshiva Torah V'daas, Reb Shraga Feivel Mendlowitz (1886-1948) of blessed memory. (UOJ has written before that Brenner was considered a misfit in yeshiva and was not close to RSFM). After a few years of serving as a rabbi and principal in a small town in New Jersey, Reb Lipa was becoming exasperated. The local baalei battim (laymen) were not cooperating with him in his endeavors and Reb Lipa's accomplishments seemed to dim with every passing year. Meanwhile, to add to his dilemma, business opportunities beckoned from New York. Aside from the potential financial security that was so alluring, New York offered a variety of boys' and girls' yeshivos in which Reb Lipa might finally have the opportunity to provide his children with the chinuch (education) that he felt was proper and essential.
In a quandary as to whether or not to leave the rabbinate, he decided to travel to Eretz Yisrael and seek the advice of the Vizhnitzer Rebbe, Reb Chaim Mayer Hager, of blessed memory. (1888-1972). Reb Lipa obtained his tickets and a passport, and made the trip. However, upon his arrival he was informed that the Rebbe was preparing to leave for Lugano, Switzerland, and would receive no more visitors before his departure. So Reb Lipa followed him to Switzerland.
In Lugano, Reb Lipa made his way to where the Rebbe was staying. He waited his turn to see the Rebbe and, when he was finally ushered in, the Rebbe asked Reb Lipa to sit beside him at his table. Seated across the table was another rav from Tel Aviv. After a few moments the rebbetzin (Rebbe's wife) came in with a glass of hot tea for her husband. Before she could even put the tea on the table, the Rebbe gently admonished her and said, "Please bring two more glasses of tea. We are three rabbanim (rabbis) here about to have a discussion."
Reb Lipa was astounded. The Rebbe had referred to him as a rav, and talked of him as though he were a peer. Reb Lipa trembled as he realized the significance of the title the Vizhnitzer Rebbe had inadvertently bestowed on him. But perhaps it wasn't inadvertent? Did the Rebbe know that he was thinking of leaving the rabbinate? Reb Lipa never bothered to find out. Then and there he resolved his own conflict. He would retain his position as rav.
Reb Lipa went on to teach and influence hundreds of under-affiliated Jews. For example, more than two decades later, Reb Lipa was visiting in the Mattersdorf section of Jerusalem. It was Shabbos afternoon and dozens of children were playing in the streets, which are cordoned off until nightfall. Suddenly a bearded young man came over to Reb Lipa, yelling, "Rebbe!" Reb Lipa turned around, but he did not recognize anyone. "Rebbe," the young man said, smiling, "you are Reb Brenner, aren't you? You probably don't recognize me anymore. I went to your school back in New Jersey more than twenty years ago. Come with me," the young man said warmly. "I want to introduce you to your grandchildren."
The young man took Reb Lipa by the hand and brought him to where his wife was watching their children play. The Sages tell us "Anyone who teaches Torah to a child of his friend, is as though he gave birth to [the child,]" said the young man, citing the Talmud (Sanhedrin 19b). "Thus, if I am your child, these are your grandchildren."
The young man was indeed one of the five from a foster home in New Jersey whom Reb Lipa had dedicated himself to teach Torah so many years previous. Reb Lipa had seen to it that he attend the Mirrer Yeshiva in New York, and from there, the young man went on to become an outstanding talmid chacham (Torah Scholar). Reb Lipa had all but forgotten him, but the young man had remembered. The face of his mentor had been etched in the child's memory forever. (Around the Maggid's Table R. Paysach Krohn, p.98)
We see the power of correcting others in a kind way. The Torah and mitzvahs of the young man and his family were only possible because Reb Lipa decided to stay a Rabbi. Thus, the kind words of the Vizhnitzer Rebbe had a tremendous effect on several generations. In our story, the Vizhnitzer Rebbe merely treated Reb Lipa with respect, by referring to him with the title of "Rav." There are plenty of businessmen but precious few talented Rabbis who can teach authentic Torah to the masses. Thus, Reb Lipa was much more needed in the rabbinate than in business. The Vizhnitzer Rebbe, who was endowed with enhanced spiritual powers of perception was able to see into Reb Lipa's soul and know what issue was on his mind. Therefore, when it came time to give Reb Lipa his opinion, the Rebbe did so in the sweetest way possible.


Rabbi "Lewis" (Yom Tov) Lipa Hacohen is a vile pedophile. He was convicted in 1996 of child molestation. The original charges included 14 counts of sodomy, sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child. He agreed to plead guilty to one count of sodomy in the third degree, a Class E felony, in exchange for a sentence of five years' probation.

Prosecutors said Brenner had sexual contact with a youth he met in the bathroom of the synagogue they attended. The molestations allegedly took place over a three-year period that ended in 1995 when the victim was 15 years old.

Yes, that is why the local baalei battim were not "cooperating" with him in his endeavors. They wanted him out of chinuch and out of their communities and institutions.

Instead, Rabbi Brenner moved from one community to the next through numerous synagogues and institutions in NJ and NY state. Brenner was a former Vice President of the Rabbinical Alliance of America and has held numerous pulpit positions in NY and NJ over the past 50 years.

See UOJ's discussion at: http://theunorthodoxjew.blogspot.com/2006/08/haredi-rav-on-authentic-daas-torah-and.html

As to the assertion "Reb Lipa was much more needed in the rabbinate than in business". He was a complete and total fraud in both. His involvment in both is a complete chilul Hashem.

As to his business dealings, see my post
about Rabbi Brenner's financial dealings and their possible impact on the child molestation criminal charges at:

Yes folks, the truth, not the lie told by Rav Krohn in his Maggid's Table Artsroll myths and his stated questionable historical background source of the many other stories that Krohn has written. His source? To repeat: A convicted/confessed child molester involved in $57 million of government fraud.

One thousand Orthodox Rabbis agree Jews need to be perfected

On the October 30 edition of Fox News' Hannity & Colmes, co-host Alan Colmes said to his guest, conservative author and pundit Ann Coulter: "I haven't spoken to you since you made your infamous comment saying that people like me need to be 'perfected,' " adding, "So how about embracing one of the great Christian virtues, as Yushke discussed, humility, and apologizing to all those people you offended by that comment?"

Colmes was referring to Coulter's statement, documented by Media Matters for America, on the October 8 edition of CNBC's The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch that "we" Christians "just want Jews to be perfected." Responding to Colmes, Coulter stated: "[I]f you're going to go around citing all the people I have offended, Alan, I have 1,000 Orthodox rabbis supporting me."

Later, Colmes asserted: "You claim 1,000 Orthodox rabbis support you. I don't know who they are, but I can tell you, you know the Anti-Defamation League, the American Jewish Congress, and many others have condemned you for that. Do you care?" Coulter responded: "I wear it as a badge of honor. It's like citing the National Organization of Women to tell me how all women feel. The point is: This is the same old fight we see all the time with the irreligious trying to stir up trouble with the religious."

It bothers me greatly that someone like Rabbi Scheinberg who learned alongside Rav Shimon Shkop and who was zoche to meet the Chofetz Chaim could be involved with such sordid characters like Margulies & Belsky.

There were a whole bunch of rabbis in town who all got divorced around the same time under mysterious circumstances. At least 4 of them.

Rabbis are supposed to set an example. Not like the one who:

1- While still giving a shiur in yeshiva, opened a Psych clinic at the Promenade Mall, then quickly divorced his wife & married a client.

2- Made up crazy rumors about his wife being lesbian and trying to shmear her defecation on him. So he gets divorced and starts chasing girls less than half his age.

Speaking of Peretz Steinberg who is also a major honcho at the Queens Vaad, I heard there was a problem with the KGH mikva 14 years ago. One rov told his members to stop using it. It got back to the Queens Vaad who convened a meeting to attack the rov who was trying to prevent issurim. They allegedly covered it up, attacked the rov who knew, and still didn't fix the problem until 3 weeks after the attack.

Convicted Sex Offender Steven Zakheim said...


DOES AMBULANCE MAN CHASE SKIRTS? We wrote in November about federal charges against Brooklyn ambulance mogul Steven Zakheim for allegedly funneling excessive campaign contributions through his employees. Turns out there was more to the story. The Village Voice reported last week that Zakheim was accused of rampant skirt-chasing at his Foster Avenue business by a lawsuit that was just settled.

"His office antics allegedly included grabbing employees' hands and placing them in his opened zipper, and giving unrequested shoulder massages as women sat at their desks and peeking down their blouses," the Voice reported. His accusers were represented by Arnie Kriss, a potential candidate for Brooklyn district attorney in 2005. Neither Kriss nor Zakheim would discuss the case with the Voice, though Zakheim's attorney denied his client did anything wrong. But the complaint detailed all sorts of specific incidents of allegedly bawdy behavior by Zakheim, 49, and noted that he hired bimbos for his business and then attempted to date them.

The Voice also reported that Zakheim was convicted of misdemeanor sex abuse in 1983, but failed to list it on his state license applications-a transgression that ultimately resulted in a $6,000 fine.

F32 - Steven Zakheim

Village Voice said...


Steve Zakheim and his private ambulance corps won acclaim for handling delicate emergencies, like giving an ailing 800-pound (Agudah Fresser) man a free trip to the hospital—via forklift. Zakheim also won notice when his firm, MetroCare, received permission from a friendly Giuliani administration to install 911 radios in his fleet, a move that outraged city paramedic unions.
The energetic Zakheim founded Metropolitan Ambulance in the 1980s, and later made millions by merging it with a national company called Transcare. Still, he stayed aboard as chief operating officer at his bustling headquarters on Foster Avenue in Brooklyn.

Busy as Zakheim was, however, according to a lawsuit quietly settled this month, the ambulance tycoon also spent a good deal of time hitting on and harassing his female employees. The suit, filed in State Supreme Court in Brooklyn, was brought by 10 current and former staff members who worked for MetroCare. The workers claimed that Zakheim often set upon employees from the day they were hired, demanding sex in exchange for raises, boat rides, and tickets to Yankee games.

One woman, an emergency medical technician, said in legal papers that Zakheim and another company official called her to say that she "owed" them a sexual favor because they had allowed her to transport Derek Jeter to the hospital after he injured his knee in a July 4, 2002, game at Yankee Stadium, where MetroCare provides ambulance service.

Zakheim, 49, refused to discuss the lawsuit, which was withdrawn pursuant to an undisclosed settlement this month. "He denies all allegations set forth in the complaint," said his attorney, Mercedes Colwin. "The parties have now resolved it to their satisfaction."

Arnold Kriss, who represented the plaintiffs, also refused to talk about it. "My clients have instructed me not to make any comment," he said.

The lawsuit itself, however, was filed in the public record in July 2003, and came to light after Zakheim encountered other legal trouble last year. In November, the ambulance tycoon was arrested by the FBI and charged with using employees to make illegal campaign contributions to several political committees, including those of former mayor Giuliani and U.S. senator Chuck Schumer. Two weeks after that, federal attorneys in Brooklyn filed a civil fraud complaint against Zakheim and his companies, claiming they ripped off federal Medicare funds for more than $32 million through improper billings—and then forged records to cover it up.

Zakheim pled not guilty to the campaign contributions charge, and he has yet to be formally indicted in the case. Court records show he is involved in ongoing plea negotiations. In the fraud case, he has insisted he acted properly and has moved to dismiss the complaint.

The harassment lawsuit, however, depicts another side of operations at MetroCare, which calls itself the region's largest private provider of medical transport. Covering events during an eight-year period from 1994 to 2002, the suit offers a long, sad litany of abuse, one made all the more disturbing because of the number of women relating it. Zakheim allegedly taunted and teased older employees, they claimed, while preying on the youngest. His office antics allegedly included grabbing employees' hands and placing them in his opened zipper, and giving unrequested shoulder massages as women sat at their desks and peeking down their blouses.

"Look at the view," Zakheim allegedly said out loud as he stood behind Patricia Attanasio, a 36-year-old clerical employee. "You've got nice tits," he told Patricia Flournoy, a 50-year-old woman who worked for the company for five years, according to the lawsuit.

Behind closed doors in his office, Zakheim supposedly turned up the heat.

A woman who was 18 when she was hired by MetroCare, in 1998, said that in her first week on the job, Zakheim summoned her to his office and grilled her about her personal life. A few weeks later, the woman said, Zakheim offered her a ride home, only to lock the doors and grab her breasts as soon as she sat down in the passenger seat.

The employee said she later agreed to have sex with Zakheim, who is married, an affair carried out for months in his office and aboard his 37-foot pleasure boat. It ended, she said in the complaint, when she learned that her boss was having affairs with others in the office as well. Even after the woman became pregnant from a separate relationship, Zakheim allegedly continued to press her for sex, saying, "We don't have to worry about you getting pregnant."

According to Geraldine Aronofsky, 52, who worked as manager of the call-receiving department, Zakheim's standing orders were to hire only young, attractive women for the office, regardless of their experience.

"Once the individual woman applicant was hired, Defendant Zakheim attempted to date them," the complaint stated.

Former employees of Zakheim said that such women became known as "Steve Specials."

"You could tell who they were, because they were young, good-looking, and didn't know how to do anything," said another former MetroCare employee not involved in the lawsuit, who asked to remain anonymous.

According to Aronofsky, Zakheim, an orthodox Jew, taunted her and others, saying: "Have you ever had Jewish meat before? Kosher meat is the best."

Aronofsky said in legal papers that she repeatedly protested Zakheim's behavior, telling him it was "inappropriate and unprofessional." She said Zakheim insisted he would act how he pleased. "I can, and I will," she quoted him as saying. Another supervisor brushed her complaints aside, saying it was just "Steve being Steve."

Tara Bongiardina, 25, described in the complaint how she too received the full Zakheim after being hired in 1999. On her first day of work, she said, Zakheim asked her about herself, while standing embarrassingly close and leering at her body. A few weeks later, Zakheim allegedly called her into his office and offered her tickets to a Yankees game. "What am I going to get in return?" the boss allegedly asked, adding that he had "dreamed about" her the night before.

Aronofsky and another of the plaintiffs, Adrinne Forrest, said in the lawsuit that they were fired following a 2002 incident in which they complained to the company's human resources department. They said Zakheim had berated workers in the ambulance firm's call-receiving office when he couldn't get through to them. Zakheim had allegedly asked Joann Febre, another plaintiff in the lawsuit who was a dispatcher in the office, whether his workers were "reading comic books, playing with themselves, or masturbating."

Several workers later wrote a letter of protest to company personnel officials about the incident. "It's my fucking company," Zakheim allegedly later yelled at Aronofsky and others, adding, "You can stop going to Human Resources [or] get the fuck out."

A letter was later issued by company CEO Matthew Harrison, saying that Zakheim's comments were inappropriate. Zakheim's alleged response was to tell Aronofsky, who had worked at the firm for more than a decade, that he "didn't trust her anymore." A few weeks later, he terminated her employment.

The harassment suit was settled before it even made it to the discovery stage, during which Zakheim and his lawyers would have been free to test the women's stories in sworn depositions. Unmentioned in the legal papers, however, is that this isn't the first time Zakheim has been accused of sexual transgressions. In 1983, he was found guilty of misdemeanor sex abuse, a conviction he failed to report on his state license applications. The city's EMS unions, furious after Giuliani gave MetroCare the 911 contracts, unearthed the conviction and reported it in 2000. Zakheim later paid a $6,000 fine.

Newsday said...

Steve Zakheim is reported by Newsday to have been given probation after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge of making an illegal contribution to Brooklyn Democrat Noach Dear in 2002. Details of the plea negotiation as well as the probation report and other documents relating to the case have been sealed. Zakheim had faced up to six months jail time. Other more serious charges were dropped because they were said to be technically difficult felonies to prove. Related federal charges against Zakheim's secretary, Amy Camacho, have also been dropped. Zakheim sold a majority share of MetroCare to TransCare in 1999 for $42 million. He continued as a chief executive of MetroCare until 2004 when he resigned after the Village Voice reported on a sexual harrassment lawsuit.
