Ultra-Orthodox Rabbis Raise $1.5 M. for Massive ‘Jews Against the Internet’ Rally At Citi Field

"This will be a mass rally never before seen in the history of Orthodox Jewry in the U.S. "...except everyone is Jewish and there is no baseball.

Update: No women are permitted to attend the rally, so it looks like Ladybeat will be invading the bleachers in drag.

By definition, the Ultra-Orthodox Jewish community cleaves to the old ways over modern societal norms. Thus it finds itself even more at odds with the technological wave of apps and gadgets transforming American culture.

And the time has come, apparently, to make that opposition known.

The Jewish Press reports that a massive rally is being planned for Sunday, May 20th at Citi Field in Queens “to combat the evils of the Internet and the damages caused by advanced electronic devices.”

The rabbis behind the rally don’t specify which “evils” and “damages,” in particular, they are railing against. Merely noting that they want to save a generation from “the ravages of advanced technology.”

However, a message signed by a number of Israeli rabbis in the Haredi press offers some clarification under the following headline, “A Letter from our Masters the Great Men of Israel Shlita In Preparation for the International Conference in the U.S. Against the Scourge of Technology,”

“It is well known that in recent times that through the Internet many serious family-related problems have been created, and it all happens because of it, and something must be done so they won’t be hurt. And since this touches almost everyone, we must assemble together to protect and be protected, and we hope that through this gathering in search of ideas we will be helped from Heaven to save the many, and may it be that we will be successful in encouraging the public not to stumble over this obstacle, and the Lord will guide us in a truthful path.

We’ll definitely be showing up at the rally, if only to hear more about these “family-related problems.” Probably something more insidious than just Angry Birds at the dinner table, right? But, why Citi Field? Well, the event organizers are expecting quite a show:

“This will be a mass rally never before seen in the history of Orthodox Jewry in the U.S. It will be a gathering of unity of all the Jews living in the U.S., a gathering to disseminate information and a prayer rally for the success of Klal-Israel’s war on the Technology which threatens the sanctity of the homes of Israel.”

Banning ArtScroll Shas on the iPad

“All the Jews” in America sounds a tad ambitious for a turnout goal, but JDN reports that the organizers have managed to raise $1.5 million from “private philanthropists” to produce the event. Just imagine how many iPads that could buy you!

Who's to gain from this mass rally?
1-The ones that sell internet filters. Filters provide a constant stream of dollars. It's rumored that B&H donated large sums in order to have a number of booths selling filters. One of the organizers Nechemia Gottlieb also owns a filter company.

Rabbi Malkiel Kotler dean of Lakewood's Beth Medrash Govoha (AKA-BMG) rabbinical college with some 7000 students jumped on to the bandwagon of Rabbi Matisyahu Salamon (when he saw it's gaining momentum).

Rabbi Kotler is on a war footing to be the savior of klal yisroel, therefore he not only joined Rabbi salamon but is taking over as it being his brilliance to save klal yisroel which only one with a name Kotler is capable of accomplishing.

Rabbi Kotler felt therefore justified to barge in to Rabbi Ahron Teitelbaum (Satmar Monroe)at 12:00 midnight without an appointment (to get him to join the Kotler savior call to save klal yisroel).

What was the real reason Rabbi Malkiel Kotler stated at that meeting "lubavitch is not part of klal yisroel", as Rabbi Kotler wants to play Mashiach from now on, and lubavith is a hinderance.

Just watch him try to wrestle the title of "making the Hadran at the Agudah Siyum Hashas". Rightfully it belongs to the oldest(85-90)Rosh Yeshiva Reb Shmuel Kamentsky.

The Kotlers will easily get Ely Kleinman & Gedaliah Weinberger to take it away from The elder Rosh yeshiva & hand it to the savior (mashiach) Rabbi Kotler.

There is a goal and an agenda, klal yisroel are the gullible pawns.

Rabbi Salamon really means it with no side benefits, interests, etc.

And that's why Lakewood's Rabbi K felt justified to barge in to the office of Lakewood peditricians and demand "no vacinations anymore, I'm the boss".This was done with waiting rooms full of patients whom were all in shock at the outburst. But to become the undisputed mashiach savior you must show you are the boss of orthodox Judaisim.

Fasten your seatbelts.

Rabbi Ahron Kotler, ZT"L the undisputed revered Gadol Hadoir in his time (50 years ago).

Now the Lakewood's Dean Rabbi Malkiel is demanding the respect from the Jews around the world because he carries the name Kotler.

A Gadol Hadoir is earned not inherited. The fact that he is a member of Moetzes doesn't change the facts "it's an earned title".

Could you imagine Reb Malkiel Kotler stepping aside & having his brother in laws "Shustal & Krupenia" take over Lakewood? Everyone would be running around saying "bring back Malkiel as dean".

Molestation may be defined as taking advantage of ones power against one that can't defend themselves from tha attacker.

The upcoming Gadoil Hadoir the Dean of BMG bragged in front of Rabbis Wachtfogel, Hershkowitz, Schorr, Levin among other that he gave the order that the schools should not accept Herschels children into Lakewood schools.
Because, Herschel was not subserviant to Reb Malkiel kotler the Dean in lakewood's political scene, so his children were forced to go to out of town schools.

Isn't this a child molestor? It's also adult molestation, he ruins them for life with this blemish.

The Gadoil hadoir of Lakewood is in the forefront of the Asifa?

Anonymous said...

A molestor? OH yes, and the Lakewood Dean wants to make the hadran at the siyum hashas? How low have we stooped?

I think it's a worse molestation than beating up a student in class.

Anonymous said...

The Aguda & moetzes says protect the molestors, so that justifies the asifa & the siyum hashas.

I gotta see this fraud show, I have my tickets.

Anonymous said...

If this is true? I don't doubt it, but why didn't herschel herskowitz go to the authorities? Does the Deans family control them also? I'm afraid they do. They control the media completely

What in the world is going on in Lakewood? Molestation at the highest level?

Anonymous said...

I just called some people in Lakewood & they said that the Kotlers & their vaad are in such control & power over everyone that they are serial molestors.

why is david teitelbaum playing victim/naive? he attacked the event of the gedoli m and cant understand why he's being slammed for attacking it...

Come to the citiField and you'lll see Solomon anointing Rabbi M. Kotler as the Gadol hodoir.

Bi-annual asifas will follow in order to preserve the anointed with his title.

Where did the Ichud get the money for the 14 page glossy color booklet being dropped off in shuls & supermarkets? It must have cost a fortune to produce & distribute. They even managed to get it to one shul where the rov is against the assifah & no one is going. The shul is only open on Shabbos and the building is not even easy to find so how did they get it inside?

I would have said gezunte heit to all this if not that they are promoting themselves with a picture & identification on the back page of the kotton hador "Harav" Lipa Margulies. For those of you unfamiliar with that scoundrel, he used to be the bus driver at Torah Vodaas before stealing from the yeshiva to found & become the "rosh hayeshiva" of Torah Temimah. He went on to harbor child molesters for decades until the aynikel of Rav Shraga Feivel Mendlowitz ztl exposed this massive travesty & fraud. He is a mesarev ladin many times over which is a chiyuv vos shtait in Shulchan Aruch to be mefarsem & mevazeh him. Yet he is given the kovod of sitting at a dais-like table with R' Matisyahu Salomon & R' Aron Schechter!

Who was the fool who ran to the gedolei Eretz Yisroel and messed up so badly that Rav Salomon is there trying to fix it now?

And who is Kalman K. that came back with a report? Paysach Krohn's brother? What was his role in Eretz Yisroel?

There was a recent blog entry about the Boro Park molester Zimmer being one of O-Hell's cover up clients.

O-Hell is not the only guilty party. Zimmer was & may still be working for the Vizhnitzer Neimans at Perfect Locksmith on 13th Ave. A word about the extended Neiman family who defended his employment. The Neimans have a bunch of cousins, some of whom are also chassidish but most of them have become more Americanized by now or even modern. There was another Neiman branch that owned another Perfect Locksmith (locations in Monsey, Crown Heights & next to Shoprite Ave I). They stole millions of dollars worth of merchandise and then judgement proofed themselves. Another branch spells their name Neuman. Oizer Neuman hangs out mostly with the losers at Toiv's shul on East 24th St but is otherwise a cantor in a Conservative temple. He once operated a ponzi scheme with a picture gallery. He currently owns the Neuman optical store on 13th Ave which the Forward reported he rents out a section to a fake mekubal who charges big bucks. Oizer is a widower who women in shidduchim have accused of taking liberties with getting physical on dates.

Oizer's brother Yanky Neuman is one of the biggest scumbags around. New York State calls him "morally unfit" & revoked his license to practice medicine after he was convicted of abusing children to defraud insurance with unneeded surgical procedures & then stealing hospital stationary in an attempt to cover it up with forged pathology reports. The palace that this lowlife lives in comes complete with indoor swimming pool & elevator and commands the highest property tax in Queens. He hasn't much income but is bankrolled by a combination of stiffing banks & the generosity of his billionaire brother in law Kest. He is protected by a corrupt small time Chassidishe Rebbe and his enforcer who make sure everyone still refers to him as "Doctor" and who are assisting him to try to regain his medical license while he continues to illegally practice medicine.

Will Leib Pinter's relatives & friends starting with Shmelka Pinter be facing criminal charges as a result of what is emerging from ongoing court cases over massive fraud, embezzlement & money laundering? Looks like it.

Bochner is Leib's shutef from the fake robbery & "kidnapping" at a jewelry store they owned. When Bochner came to the Kozover Rebbe's shtiebel to make a berocho levatolo of Hagomel he was booed & hissed by the mispalelim. He is the "intervenor" in this case which is someone who if they are afraid the lawsuit will indirectly seize their assets are allowed to join the defendants on their own to fight the legal action.

5 Towns Jewish Times publisher "Larry" Gordon is a lapsed Crown Heights Lubavitcher who grew up davening in 770. His paper is full of treif food & treif hashkofos but the Agudah & Yated let him get away with it for 2 reasons. A. He fights with all his might to protect Rubashkin including publishing articles bashing the biggest talmidei chochochim in the 5 Towns because they sided with gedolei Eretz Yisroel that Rubashkin fundraising assifos are inappropriate. B. His shver is one of the alter Novardhokers who was exiled to Siberia. So is Avi Shafran's father & Gordon's shver saved the life of Shafran Sr. once. These 2 clowns Avi & Larry write sickening articles lavishing praise on each other and also promoting a new neighborhood in Rockland County. There is barely a minyan of frumma there but they include Larry's son & Shafran's daughter. They are writing puff pieces about it to attract more people to move in & raise their kids' real estate values.

Can any sense be made of this ingathering of the inbred? Taiveh, is there anyone who not only remembers the word but can explain the concept? Is there anyone who can give over pshat in the 10s of thousands of lines of Gemaroh that deal with Taiveh? Is smoking a taiveh, gluttony in both achilah and in gashmius; is that taiveh? Why is the internet a bigger cause for an asifah on taiveh when the alter taivehs don't even get a whiff or whimper? If you go to the asifah, please buy a red hot for me; nem a scorecard; nem a pennant; and cheer for the NY Mets. Anything less would be a great avlah and chillul Hashem.

Boruch said...

I have just found a credible reason for NOT attending the asifa!!! No bobblehead dolls are available for sale.

I read in an august Jewish publication that the FBI and the CIA came together to assure the security of the event. The local police are too small for something as big as Motty Solomon and his homebody Ginsburg's egos.

Taiveh, do you control it or does it control you? Will the internet asifah answer this question? You can bet your sweet bippy, it WON'T.
