Get Refuser and ‘Deadbeat Dad’, Chabad Rabbi Velvel Butman, Featured on ORA’s Recalcitrant Husbands List

Rabbi Velvl Butman, a pillar of the Jewish community? No. He is an embarrassment to all Jews. Is this the way we want the world to view Judaism? He should be jailed, have his rights removed and any other available remedy at law and at equity to make his payments and divorce his wife.



Chabad rabbi Velvel Butman (also spelled Velvl), refuses to give his wife a Get (Jewish divorce) and has kept her trapped in their marriage for approximately 5 years.

According to a recent New York Post article, he is a ‘deadbeat dad’ who has neglected to pay almost $80,000 in child support.  Butman was held in contempt of court by a Brooklyn judge for failing to pay his child support obligation since 2013.  His wife, Rachel Butman, currently lives with six of their eight children in Crown Heights.  She provides for them by commuting to a job as a daycare worker in Westchester.  Of four years of monthly payments of $2,000 each, Velvel has paid only two months worth.

He is the son of prominent Chabad rabbi and messianist, Shmuel Butman
