Sopher is not exclusively an Ashkenazi name.

This putz known as Syd runs the Ben Ish Chai minyan on Caribou (nusach Edut Hamizrach) and he has ties to India. So he is most likely from the Iraqi kehilla who have lived in Bombay, India, for 100s of years.

His wife Chava is a cleaning lady broker.

18 Hotspur by the way is one of the poorest run down buildings in the city so he is either a miser or not making any money in real estate.

He's been messaging divorced women on Shabbat.com to come stay by him for Shabbos.

I always suspected that website could end up being abused by predators.

Same neighborhood as Heshy Nussbaum & Agudah Toronto. And Bobov which also had molesters.

But I don't know if Sopher still has the minyan on Caribou as that is south of Lawrence. Sopher used to live in another run down building near there on Shelbourne.

Big money-making gerus scam.

Young Israel's Dov Fisher goes trolling Tropper style for intermarried couples to do kiruv on which is against halacha. Sends them to Avrohom Union at the RCC. Cunin gets full tuition for the kids at Chabad.

There is only one building that separates 18 Hotspur from Associated Hebrew Schools Neptune campus, named after avoda zara no less. One Associated principal at a different campus has a gay pedophile son Tuvya Rokach who was arrested in Monsey and then some big strings were pulled to get him back to Canada. That campus is Finch, which is a species of faygella.

I save most of my wrath for the two sadistic arseholes who were running the Neptune campus, Pinchas Brumer and Jerry Rosenfield. Who can measure the psychological damage they inflicted on various kids?

Tommy Lasorda said...

Isn't Avrohom Union the putz-thief who cashes checks of toyvim anyway even when he won't send hazmonos to criminals who have protekzia with the RCC?

You are not kidding about those BIG strings pulled for Rokach. He was not even barred from re-entering the United States it seems because only months after his case disappeared from the NY Courts website and he was back in Toronto, he was seen davening late shacharis in the mornings at Satmar of Lakewood.

Does anyone in Lakewood know who was employing him? He might not have a good work ethic with late shacharis but he needs money from somewhere.

How low can Larry Gordon get? The twerp who grew up davening in 770 but then moved to Lawrence to become clean shaven modern orthodox - but who still insists he is a Lubavitcher - seems to have no bounds.

Here is a recent propaganda piece Larry is doing for the benefit of another little twerp, Jeremy Stern of ORA. Larry 'gangs up' with Jeremy in a fake attack on Mendel Epstein. Both Larry & Jeremy have collaborated with Mendel in the past but that collaboration does not look very good to the public these days nor to Federal prosecutors who are looking for co-conspirators. Larry really made a rear end out of himself a few years ago when he decided to promote Mendel on the front page of an edition of 5 Towns Jewish Times that hit newsstands only a few hours before the FBI handcuffed Mendel. Jeremy of course had actual partnerships with Mendel in cases including that of the zoyna Tamar Epstein-Friedman. But Larry really has nerve to pretend he was never one of Mendel's cheerleaders.

Larry continues laying on the positive p.r. on behalf of the crook & womanizer Benny Rogosnitzky. What is the figure up to on the money he stole from Gateways & from the Ringel family? Is it in the $ millions? And how is his Puerto Rican mistress while he continues hitting on all the women in Upper Manhattan? Well, maybe she is not a mistress now that he got divorced.

What it boils down to is that Rogosnitzky runs a group (giving him access to women) that pays to place ads in newspapers. And of course Larry wants those ads $$$$$. Which is the same reason why Larry is also promoting in this article a 5 Towns feminist law firm that works with ORA to profit from divorces.

Gil Student also on the side of Tamar & the feminist mafia.

He does have a habit of picking the loser.
