Subject: Rabbi Hier, "They say there never was a Chanukah"

“It happened in those times and again in our time!”
They say there never was a Chanukah

December 6, 2010

2,200 years ago, the Maccabees fought off an attempt from the Greeks to delegitimize the existence of the Jewish people. But you and I know that the battle to deny Israel’s right to exist is still going on in our time and you can help us do something about it.

Only last week, a senior Palestinian Authority Ministry of Information official had the audacity to say, “The Jews have no historical or religious ties to the Temple Mount or the Western Wall. There is no archeological evidence that the Temple Mount was built during the period of King Solomon….”

This lie was contradicted by their own Supreme Muslim Council, the highest Muslim religious authority in Jerusalem which, from 1924 to 1953 published their own official guide to Jerusalem which described the Dome of the Rock as follows, “Its identity with the site of Solomon’s Temple is beyond dispute. This, too, is the spot according to the universal belief, on which [quoting Hebrew Scripture] ‘David built there an altar unto the Lord.”

We must respond to this continuous campaign to delegitimize Israel by the Palestinian leadership. Only two weeks ago, UNESCO joined in in this campaign by calling Rachel’s Tomb a “mosque,” attempting to steal from the Jewish people one of its most sacred religious sites.

Remember the words of the Chanukah prayer, “It happened in those times and again in our time!!”

With your help, we will be successful in standing up to these revisionists as our ancestors did 2,200 years ago on the first Chanukah. Please email this Chanukah message to your family and friends.

Good riddance said...

(WPIX) — The oldest inmate in the New York prison system died Tuesday at the age of 101, according to corrections officials.

Theodore Sypnier, a convicted sex offender, died at 12:23 a.m. Monday of natural causes in the medical wing of the Hudson Valley prison. According to authorities, the Buffalo man sexually abused children as young as 4 years old for decades, both in his hometown and later in Tonawanda, NY.

Sypnier was convicted of molesting a child for the last time in 1999, when he abused two young sisters. He got out of prison nine years later, but was incarcerated in April after violating parole by missing sex offender classes.

He would have been up for parole once again in January, 2012.

Kranc Iz Er ("sick is he" in Yiddish) said...

The tale of Gershon Kranczer, the Krancer aka Kranc-iz-er, 3

The utter shtunk that nebech Kranczer der Krancer has created is mind-boggling. You know it's really bad if "the best of the best" news services, not just gossip on blogs, reports the horrors. Take a look:

Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA): "Brooklyn rabbi wanted for molesting daughters, December 5, 2010, (JTA) -- The former principal of a Brooklyn yeshiva, along with three of his sons, are wanted for molesting four of his children over 15 years.

New York police are looking for Rabbi Gershon Kranczer, 58, and one of his sons, Asher, 21, who are believed to have fled to Israel, according to reports. Son Yechezkel Kranczer, 24, turned himself in to the police on Dec. 2 and was released on bail, and a third son, 15, was arrested.

The abuse reportedly came to light after one of the daughters, 20, told a co-worker at the yeshiva where she works as a teachers' aide that the rabbi had been molesting her for 15 years, the New York Daily News reported.

Gershon Kranczer and his three sons are accused of sexually abusing the four sisters -- ages 20, 19, 17 and 8 -- numerous times in the past few years.

Gershon Kranczer is the former head of Yeshiva Tehila L'Dovid, which serves children with special needs. He and his wife have 14 children aged 10 to 28.

New York City children's services officials reportedly removed the minor children from the home."

The JTA is a news service and this hard-core news report will filter to hundreds of sources that will have to read about this shmutz being exported from the heart of Charedi Flatbush in Brooklyn, from none other than a devotee of great rabbis such as Aron Shechter of Yeshiva Rabbi Chaim Berlin and Leizer Ginzburg of the Mirrer Yeshiva, both in Brooklyn. They too must be taken into account and taken to task and asked to help locate der Krancer Kranczer before he causes more harm. Such a sick slick man is capable of taking another wife or "pilegesh" (concubine) on the lam and raping and molesting kids as he fathers and raises them, such is this sick mind at work.

Kranc Iz Er ("sick is he" in Yiddish) said...

The tale of Gershon Kranczer, the Krancer aka Kranc-iz-er, 4

This ma'aseh Sedom only gets worse simply because it's being taken seriously by the serious media. Are the gedolim in Flatbush-Midwood, Brooklyn namely Aron Shechter of the Yeshiva Rabbi Chaim Berlin and Leizer Ginzburg of the Mirrer Yeshiva who supported and helped and enabled Kranczer der Krancer for over THIRTY YEARS, all through his yeshiva days, his marriage, his kollel years, the brisim of his kids they went to and got honored at, his simchas they went to, the long-winded and flowery letters of support (haskomas) they wrote for him when he started his idea of a "yeshiva" -- it was more of a drop-off center for retards from frum homes whose parents wanted to hide in the closet, nebech -- and helped him raise money all the years, are they now going to take responsibility for creating this incestuous Frankenstein or are they going to revert to their usual reactions of their "innocent act" and hoping that with other problems this will be forgotten?

It is bad, don't fool yourself. You know it's bad if even the vaunted Wall Street Journal feels it must report this:

"NY-CRIME-DECEMBER 4, 2010 Father, Sons Face Sex-Abuse Claims

The former rabbi of a Brooklyn school for boys is believed to have fled to Israel after police identified him and three of his sons as suspects in the sexual abuse of the rabbi's four daughters, authorities said Friday.

Gershon Kranczer, 58 years old, allegedly boarded a flight from Kennedy Airport destined for Israel on Monday along with his 21-year-old son Asher, after an informant told police that Mr. Kranczer had allegedly engaged in a prolonged sexual relationship with at least one of his daughters, police said. Asher, who a law-enforcement official said is legally blind, is being investigated in the sexual abuse of three of his sisters, police said.

"We are seeking the exact whereabouts and return from Israel of the two men," top NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said.

Two other sons, Yechezkel, 24, and a 15-year-old whose name was being withheld by authorities because of his age, have been arrested and charged with sexually abusing their sisters, police said.

Yechezkel, who recently got married and moved out of the family's two-story house, has been charged with multiple counts of sexual abuse. The 15-year-old son has been charged with the sexual abuse of his 8-year-old sister. It wasn't known immediately whether the two had attorneys; they were awaiting arraignment late Friday.

Mr. Browne said the department has a good working relationship with Israeli authorities in addition to an extradition agreement. An NYPD detective stationed in Tel Aviv is assisting the Israelis in their search for the suspects, Mr. Browne said. Mr. Kranczer and his wife have 14 children, ranging in age from 8 to 28, police said. The mother hasn't been named as a suspect and police are investigating if she was aware of the alleged abuse, police said. The children under 18 have been removed from the family's home and placed into the care of the Administration for Children's Services, police said.

The allegations came to light when a 20-year-old daughter, who works as a teacher's aide at a yeshiva, confided to a staff member there that she had been raped by her father repeatedly over the course of 15 years, police said. The coworker alerted authorities.

Police said the investigation revealed that Mr. Kranczer and his three sons allegedly sexually abused four girls who are now 20, 19, 17 and 8 years old...

Police said the investigation into the sexual abuse is continuing and did not rule out the possibility that other children were molested..."

Fed Up said...

Why is so difficult for everyone to believe this plague in the Charedi world?

It boils down to leadership.

The same leadership that has created a welfare culture within their ranks. The same leadership that will enact "takanos" and then find a way to free themselves from their very own edicts.

Take, for example, Ramat Bet Shemesh, one of the "new lights" of the Charedi world. This is a city inhabited by many young, educated families who chose to leave their "past" and do "teshuva" .

They place all of their decisions into the hands of several egomaniac rabbis who tell them how to do everything from what toothpaste to use, where to send their kids to school (theirs of course),how to vote,where to shop,etc.

Sadly they also place the safety of their children and families into the hands of these mazikim who tell them to NEVER go to the authorities if you suspect abuse.

And this is a shame because Ramat Bet Shemesh is a den of molestors and abusers.

Thank G-d there are rabbonim, organizations and individuals who have the courage to take a stand. They have been criticized, ostracized and derided for having the "chutzpa" to create a protection for children.

One man, David Morris, a known askan, has been publicly humiliated by one of these so called "rabbis".

His crime? Starting an organization Magen to help awareness and provide a hotline for victims and their families.

Not only has Morris been attacked. The noble organization Lema'an Achai, which he started to battle poverty, has also fallen victim.

Lema'an Achai has been banned from fundraising in certain shuls because...well no one really knows why other than it's the whim of these egomaniacs.

The scary angle here is that we are not speaking of just any rabbis. The 2 rabbis leading this battle against good are renowned.

One, Rabbi Elimelech Kornfeld, is a recognized posek and the darling of the Bnei Brak crowd.

The other, Chaim Z. Malinowitz, was a dayan in Monsey and is the editor general of the Artscroll gemaras. he makes his position on child abuse and reporting open and clear.

Advocates for children should make known to Artscroll their anger that such a man who forbids going to the authorities, publicly humiliates child protectors and bans tzedaka organizations can be employed to edit their works.

The parents of married children who live in Ramat Bet Shemesh and follow these charlatans should realize the danger that their children and grandchildren live in.

We can't be silent.We must strengthen those leaders who have shown courage and shun the others who endanger us all, especially our children.

Does this putz know Belsky?

State Senator Kevin Parker was convicted on Tuesday of two charges of misdemeanor criminal mischief related to an altercation he had with a New York Post photographer in May 2009.

In May, Parker erupted at the photographer who was stationed outside the lawmaker’s home in Flatbush for an assignment about the possible foreclosure of his house. Parker was found guilty of causing damage to a car and camera.

Parker, a Brooklyn Democrat who has served eight years in the Senate, was arrested in 2005 for punching a traffic agent for writing him a parking ticket. Prosecutors dropped the charges after he agreed to take an anger-management course.

http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/12/08/top-lobbyist-ensnared-in-penision-fund-scandal/

One of Albany’s most prominent lobbyists reached a settlement with Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo after being accused of dangling offers to win business as part of Mr. Cuomo’s investigation of the state pension fund, his office announced on Wednesday.

Patricia Lynch, a former aide to Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and a perennial powerhouse of Albany’s lobbying industry, will pay a $500,000 fine and will agree to a five-year ban on appearing before the state comptroller’s office, which runs the state’s $133 billion pension fund, the third largest in the country.

Mr. Cuomo’s investigation determined that Ms. Lynch sought to win favor from the former comptroller Alan G. Hevesi by arranging contributions for Mr. Hevesi’s campaign, a consulting contract for a person connected to Mr. Hevesi’s chief of staff, and gifts worth thousands of dollars.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — Lake-effect storms are pounding parts of northwestern Pennsylvania and upstate New York for another day, with nearly 4 feet snow falling in the Syracuse area since the weekend and forecasters calling for more into Thursday.

Dozens of schools are closed. State and local police report numerous accidents on Syracuse-area highways and roads. Troopers say an accident involving three tractor-trailers closed a Syracuse highway for about five hours Tuesday night.

The National Weather Service says the Syracuse area has up to 47 inches, with another six to 12 possible by Thursday.

In Pennsylvania, the tiny northwestern town of Blooming Valley had 35 inches, with more expected Wednesday.

A broad campaign of cyberattacks appeared to be under way on Wednesday in support of the beleaguered antisecrecy organization WikiLeaks, which has drawn governmental criticism from around the globe for its release of classified American documents and whose founder, Julian Assange, is being held in Britain on accusations of rape.

Attacks were reported on Mastercard.com, which stopped processing donations for WikiLeaks; on the lawyer representing the two Swedish women who have accused Mr. Assange of sexual improprieties; and on PostFinance, the Swiss postal system’s financial arm, which closed Mr. Assange’s account after saying he provided false information by saying that he resided in Switzerland.

At least some of the attacks involved distributed denials of service, in which a site is bombarded by requests from a network of computers until it reaches capacity and, effectively, shuts down.

It was unclear whether the various attacks were independently mounted, but suspicion was immediately focused on Anonymous, a leaderless group of activist hackers that had vowed to wreak revenge on any organization that lined up against WikiLeaks and that claimed responsibility for the Mastercard attack.

The group, which gained notoriety for their cyberattacks on targets as diverse as the Church of Scientology and the rock musician Gene Simmons, released two manifestos over the weekend vowing revenge against enemies of WikiLeaks.

First Chareidi Psychiatric Hospital Under Construction

By A. Cohen

With maranan verabbonon on hand along with rabbonim and Deputy Health Minister MK Rabbi Yaakov Litzman, other top ministry officials, ministers, MKs, heads of cities and public figures, a cornerstone-laying event for a new hospital to be built at the former site of the City of Bnei Brak warehouses. The complex, which is the first project of its kind anywhere in the world, will be built in cooperation with the Health Ministry, and includes emergency rooms, outpatient clinics, one-day hospitalization, hospital wards and a rehabilitation center that so far has cost $13 million.

"Mental illness is one of the most painful problems families can cope with," said Dr. Moshe Rothschild founder of the Maayanei Hayeshua Medical Center. "Unlike physical sickness, mental illness is widely perceived as a much more dangerous problem. Mental illness is seen as untreatable, alarming and unfamiliar, automatically creating repulsion and embarrassment. Therefore a mental health patient who is not treated suffers a double blow: a lack of medication and rejection by his own family members. His silent cry fills the home with a great scream, yet nobody can hear."

The mental health hospital will be built to high standards on seven floors and the 11,000 square meters of will include a 24-hour emergency room and separate wards. Other departments will include outpatient clinics, adults, children and psycho-geriatrics, a day treatment unit, a day center for children, consulting services for schools and other educational institutions. The hospital will provide innovative treatment, including animal therapy, and will feature a fitness room. Upon opening, all of the services currently provided in nearby clinics will be transferred to the hospital.

Since its outpatient clinics were built six years ago, the number of patients has grown tremendously. According to medical director Dr. Michael Buntzel, "If in 2004 698 adults were treated in 4,732 visits, in 2009 1,839 adults were treated in 18,048 visits. Similar figures are seen for the number of child patients; while in 2008, when the specialized clinics were set up, 24 children were treated, whereas in 2009, 276 children were treated. In the new unit for daytime care, opened one year ago, the figures are similar and the unit operates five days a week in 20 treatment stations that are fully occupied. These figures serve as a painful reminder of the need for a suitable framework for treating these patients from the chareidi and religious sectors, We now know that 45 percent of adults seeking clinical treatment and approximately 70% of children would not seek treatment at other clinics that are not able to meet their special needs."

The Roman Catholic Church, battered by sexual abuse scandals from the United States to Belgium, is facing a new set of allegations now in the Netherlands. Figures released Thursday by an investigative commission showed that almost 2,000 people have made complaints of sexual or physical abuse against the church, in a country with only 4 million Catholics.

“The Roman Catholic church has not faced a crisis like this since the French Revolution,” said Peter Nissen, professor of the history of religion at Radboud University, of the growing abuse scandal.

Asked in March on TV about the hundreds of complaints already surfacing then, one of its most senior figures, Cardinal Adrianus Simonis, shocked the nation by replying not in Dutch but in German.

“Wir haben es nicht gewusst” — we knew nothing — he said, using a phrase associated with Nazis excuses after the Second World War - a parallel that has reverberated around the Netherlands.

“A lot of people perceived it as an affirmation of the culture of covering up cases,” said Professor Nissen, adding that, because of its association with the Nazis, it meant to many “’we should have known’ or ‘we knew but we didn’t want to know.’”

The Rev. Federico Lombardi, the Vatican spokesman, said he had no comment, saying that the matter was in the hands of Dutch bishops.

In a recently-published book entitled “Pious Sinners,” Joep Dohmen, argues that, instead of dealing with allegations of pedophilia, there was a policy of moving known abusers around the Netherlands, often exiling them to small, rural communities.

"Cardinal Simonis and other Dutch bishops swept abuse cases under the carpet,” said Mr. Dohmen “They transferred offending priests, and provided little care to victims.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Internal Revenue Service is seriously considering a new program of reduced penalties for overseas tax cheats who turn themselves in.

About 15,000 tax cheats came clean last year as part of an IRS offer of reduced penalties and no jail time for people who turn themselves in.

IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman told an international tax conference Thursday that the program was so successful the agency is considering another one.

Last year's offer was made as the IRS stepped up efforts to go after Americans hiding money overseas, including a well-publicized case involving Swiss banking giant UBS AG.

Shulman said any new program would not be as generous as last year's.
