By Continuing to Hold Minyanim in Brooklyn and Monsey, NY, Lakewood You are Committing Mass Murder!

“YWN is pleading with our readers to do anything they can to get the Monsey Minyanim – and the Minyanim in Boro Park, Flatbush, and Lakewood TO STOP.

People are committing mass murder by having these Minyanim.”

The Continued Observation of Minyanim (10 Men to a Prayer Group Minimum) and other Religious Customs (Regardless of Religion) Are Akin to Mass Murder – Bio-Terrorism

Dear Readers:

We are posting the entire post of the death of 39 Year Old Lip Friedrich Z”L. He left behind a wife and 6 children, the youngest of which is only five weeks old. That is a tragedy.

The Satmar Kehilla of Monsey has an obligation to support the wife and children, in our opinion, just like the families of suicide bombers. We take the viewpoint that if every member did not test negative or suffer from Covid-19 and survive, each member is a walking killing machine and should be viewed as such. Any coordinated prayer group that cannot affirm that all members are negative, have not been exposed to anyone or have survived Covid-19 is no different than a group of bio-terrorists. The religious affiliation is irrelevant.

We note that Yeshiva World News should contact us if they want us to remove their post as they likely do not support this page, except to the extent we apparently now agree on the magnitude of shutting down communal prayer. And, we hold to that position whatever the religious viewpoint.

We note that there is a Yiddish WhatsApp circulating, of which we have a copy, that tells where a Minyan is to be held, asking people to attend to say prayers for people (Tehillim). This is simply a request to spread a virus and is highly irresponsible.

We wish our deepest condolences to the families of all of the victims of Corona.

MONSEY CORONA VICTIM: 39 Year Old Lipa Friedrich Z”L, No Medical History; Minyanim Still Taking Place

YWN regrets to inform you of the tragic Petira of Lipa Freidrich Z”L of Monsey. He was 39.

The Niftar was a perfectly healthy young man with no prior medical condition. He tested positive for COVID-19 three days ago and was in isolation at home.

This morning he had severe shortness of breath and Monsey Hatzolah was called. Paramedics intubated him and he was placed on a respirator at Good Samaritan Hospital. Unfortunately, he was Niftar 2 hours later.

The Niftar was part of the Satmar Kehilla in Monsey. He drove a bus for Parnasah.

Tragically, he leaves behind a wife and 6 children – the youngest just 5 weeks old.

Chanania Yom Tov Lipa Z”L was the son of of Reb Moshe Freidrich.

YWN is pleading with our readers to do anything they can to get the Monsey Minyanim – and the Minyanim in Boro Park, Flatbush, and Lakewood TO STOP. People are committing mass murder by having these Minyanim.

Yeshiva Pirchei Shoshanim Summons OU to Beit Din and OU Refuses

Prichei v. OU

Hat Tip to the tipster.

We are posting this due to the underlying allegations of fraud and potentially other corporate violations.

While we do not agree with the assertions regarding the Beit Din (namely that the use of civil courts is prohibited and in violation of Jewish tenets), there are rabbis who believe wholeheartedly in this method of dealing one Jew to another and we will not criticize or judge.

The aggrieved parties are entitled to recourse for what has happened here, something we hope to assist in achieving.

Please forward any additional information you  may have to our attention. We have copies of the Beit Din information in Hebrew and have attached below the associated temporary restraining order from the Beit Din in English.

Please read the letter to the community from Mabbi Nissim Makor of Pirchei Shoshanim.

We are interested in anything else you can provide.

“All Those Who Suffer at the Hands of the Hateful” – Beautiful Speech [VIDEO]

 

 

PAY CAREFUL ATTENTION TO THIS SPEECH. 

It is measured, eloquent and calm and specifically acknowledges that Rabbi Rottenberg does not believe that the community should be politicizing this event or that the community should be arming itself.

We might all be able to do a little soul-searching after these comments.

 

 

Anti-Zionism Has a Death Toll… What the Writer Missed

Image result for jews burning flags in israel

A Commentary about the Inextricable Link between anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism, a Follow Up to Tuesday’s Opinion Piece and the Opinion of Hen Mazzig

[Opinion 1.9.20]

We are republishing an article that was posted yesterday, without the permission of the author. We will take it down if asked, or cut back what we have posted. We direct you to watch the video by clicking the below link and also to view Hen Mazzig’s article in its original iteration by clicking here. 

We wholeheartedly agree that anti-Zionism has a death toll; but think that Mr. Mazzig’s point is an over-simplification of a larger problem: that anti-Semitism is inherently anti-Zionism but the reverse is not always the case, though the two are often confused.  Anti-Zionism is dangerous insofar as it does not distinguish between the State of Israel and the Jewish people, nor does it give credence to people who are genuinely critical of the State, not as anti-Zionists; but as non-supporters. Nor does it clearly illustrate that the positions taken by major organizations like the ADL need to be addressed by clear minds to avoid a misunderstood narrative. There is a distinction between anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism. In addition, Mr. Mazzig’s article does not take into consideration the highly confusing message that anti-Zionist Jews who arguably are not anti-Semitic sent out. Within their anti-Zionist framework they have invariably created a justification by non-Jews to be both anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic and, as a consequence, very dangerous to Jewish identity, both religious and otherwise.

There are Jews and non-Jews who do not support the State of Israel for one reason or another; but do not deem themselves to be anti-Zionists. That term connotes a somewhat active position on the subject. Rather, they disagree with the politics, or disagree with the philosophy or some other aspect of the State of Israel rubs them the wrong way so they simply ignore the entire issue or speak in their academic and political circles about their views. We have heard arguments on both sides and there are valid critiques to be had about the State of Israel.

There are then Jews, as listed in Tuesday’s LM article entitled:

Religious Jews Commiserating with Iran for the Destruction of Israel and Divisive Organizations – The Optics

who are outrightly anti-Zionist, even going as far as praying for Israel’s destruction. They believe that the razing of the State of Israel is a prelude to the coming  of the Moshiach (Messiah) and they cannot grasp how corrosive their views are for all Jews. They are the flag-bearers of anti-Semitism, whether they understand that premise or not. It cannot be understated that these fervently religious anti-Zionists are not small in number, are well-funded and are continuously growing.

As discussed in Tuesday’s commentary a large and visible contingent  traveled to wide press coverage and extensive, if not somewhat over-the-top, pomp and circumstance to give money to their fellow anti-Israel compatriots living within the State of Israel. They were greeted with a parade and rally upon arrival in Israel. Yet, they espouse the virtues of religious Jews inhabiting the Jewish State allegedly without accepting Israeli state funding or contributing any real benefit in return. They tow the anti-conscription line and the anti-Secular education narrative, both of which will ultimately be the downfall of the State of Israel. And they think not what they can do for their country, only what their country can do for them. Many are dual citizens of Israel and countries throughout the world and at least some collect services from both countries, all the while viewing religious principles first, country a far off second.

101 West Maple Avenue and Bankruptcy Filing – The Properties Listed on the Filing – Valuations?

Ehrenthal Bankrutpcy Petition 9Ehrenthal Bankrutpcy Petition 10Ehrenthal Bankrutpcy Petition 11

Checking Valuations of the Properties listed in the Ehrenberg Bankruptcy Filing and Inconsistencies…

The following is a rough estimate of some of the understatements made on the bankruptcy filing listed in the previous article.

Each of the properties listed in the bankruptcy filing was, in our opinion, grossly undervalued, except the Highview Road home (which presumably is the family’s primary residence).

We did our own research. Unfortunately, it is difficult when much of the property is listed as random parcels of land, no acreage numbers listed, no plot numbers of land posted, etc. Omissions can be a valuable resource.

Therefore, the below should be accepted as guesswork – initial due-diligence and an opinion based upon that due diligence which reflects information publicly available on various land valuations sites. 

  1. Tantillo Way, North Adirondack, New York. This property could be anywhere and we are further researching. But in Altona, the properties run from about $17,000 – about $50,000.00. We will need to check this further.

  2. John Hill Road – Moira, New York. This property is the same as the Tantilloo Way property. It could be an entire gamut of prices and valuations. The figure put the on the filing, however, is grossly understated. https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/John-Hill-Rd_Moira_NY_12957_M46011-84753

  3. Route 208 Washingtonville, New York. Route 208 is a state highway in Washingtonville. The valuations there are fairly significant for lots with homes. However, we find it very diffiuclt to believe that there is any property on that road for $5,200.00. There again, we would gladly purchase the property out of bankruptcy. The least expensive we could find on the maps as $11K and it backs Clove Street. Having said that, the houses built in that area go for about $450K. Quite the investment (and understatement).

  4. 1212 Sumac Road Mckeesport, PA – listed as $700.00 in value. We will gladly take it off his hands for that amount!

RUOC, 101 West Maple Avenue, A Bankruptcy Filing, Corruption? Conspiracy? Fraud?

SAMUEL EHRENTHAL OF MONSEY, NEW YORK, ALSO OWNER OF 101 WEST MAPLE AVENUE (CONGREGATION ZVILLE), FILES FOR CHAPTER 7 BANKRUPTCY AND THE WELL ORGANIZED NETWORK DESIGNED TO HIDE HIS ASSETS!

Dear Readers:

The above photographs are of Congregation Zville of Monsey, New York. It is a congregation built in a private home and constructed absent the appropriate permits. Efforts at speaking to the building department in Ramapo, New York, failed miserably. And, apparently that is nothing new. Whether permits were filed after the fact (and of course, approved) is a question that remains unanswered at this time. The synagogue is the baby of Sam Ehrenthal, who recently declared bankruptcy for the purposes of wiping out millions of dollars in debt. This debt includes government IRS taxes (see below).

We take no pleasure in someone’s misfortune. The filing of a bankruptcy can, indeed, be unfortunate. We do wonder about the authenticity of the bankruptcy filing and the integrity of the filed claims when the person involved, Samuel Ehrenthal of Monsey, New York, has been the subject of investigations for nearly 10 years without anyone taking a moment to start connecting dots and asking serious questions. In 2012 a suspicious house fire led to an investigation, one which yielded precious little. (We are assuming this is the same Samuel Ehrenthal?).

(See FailedMessiah article from May 18, 2012 involving Negligent Landlord Let off easy by town of Ramapo here.

Mr. Ehrenthal has a list of debtors who are personal individuals and have allegedly loaned him extraordinary sums of money. We believe at least some of those individuals may be helping him hide money (but we could be wrong). For the purposes of this article we did not include the last names of those listed as we do not want to violate the privacy of anyone who might be a legitimate creditor.

Monsey, NY Stabbing – Request for Information, Video Footage, Chats

ANYONE WITH ANY INFORMATION ABOUT THE STABBING IN MONSEY, NEW YORK ON NOVEMBER 20, 2019 CAN PASS IT ALONG TO OUR GMAIL ACCOUNT AND WE WILL PASS IT ALONG TO THE APPROPRIATE AUTHORITIES.

IF WE ARE ULTIMATELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ASSISTING IN APPREHENDING THE CRIMINAL AND ENTITLED TO A REWARD ANY REWARD MONEY WILL BE DONATED TO THE FAMILY OF THE VICTIM – 

We have been asked why we are not broadly covering the subject of the brutal stabbing in Monsey, New York on the morning of Wednesday, November 20, 2019.

Sometimes what we do not post speaks volumes. We are precluded.

For professional reasons the blogger will not be posting any comments or particular posts regarding this incident except what has been posted so far. If you Google “Monsey Stabbing” there is more than enough to keep you busy reading, both about the events and about the internet chatter. Twitter has information available as do a host of Facebook sites.

We are. however, making one comment quite adamantly: 

this was not a hate crime.

It appears that video footage was sought out and destroyed by members of the same community where the victim lives and worships; and that this may be hindering a speedy resolution to apprehending the criminal or criminals involved. If you have footage from CCTV or other cameras, please feel free to forward it to the gmail account listed below. We will send it to the authorities. It MUST not be doctored and the exact source for the footage must be provided.

Suffice it to say that we have been in touch with law enforcement and are actively trying to assist in the investigation. 

As such, please feel free to contact the blog-site directly with any information and it will be kept confidential.

The gmail is: findinglostmessiah@gmail.com.

We wish the family of the victim well. We wish the victim of the attack a refuah shlema. We will not be posting anything more during this last weekend in November.

Please. If you have information come forward.
