Head Shliach vs Head Shliach

Letter from Chaim Tzvi Groner on 1 March

Please be advised that I terminated Rabbi Chaim Herzog’s appointment as a Chabad shliach on 14 Cheshvan 5774, 18th October, 2013.

Accordingly, Rabbi Chaim Herzog does not have my authority to continue to use the names “Chabad” or “Lubavitch” in any activities being conducted by him, including but not limited to Chabad of CBD (Melbourne).  Any continued use of these names in conjunction with any activities undertaken or initiated by him is without my authority.

I acknowledge that more should have been done to have publicised this determination earlier.

I apologise to those that may have been impacted by my failure to have more publically alerted the community of my determination to terminate Rabbi Chaim Herzog’s appointment as a Chabad shliach earlier.

Head Shliach, Melbourne Australia

Letter from Yossel Gutnick on 4 March

It is with deep regret that I read the letter from Rabbi C Z Groner, disseminated to all members of the Yeshivah Community via the Yeshiva community email. Its well known that the Chabad Houses  are an independent organization headed by Rabbi A Serebransky, Rabbi Yossel Gutnick, and Rabbi C Z Groner  all appointed by Chabad Headquarters in N Y and not under one individual, or the Yeshiva organization.
In the current climate with the tragic events that have recently befallen our community together with the negative publicity emanating from the Royal Commission, in the spirit of unity  and Chabad values and  principals we encourage all Anash and Shluchim to work together and work out  issues internally, and not fragment  Cahbad Houses and their Emissary’s .

As there are three head Shiluchim responsible for Chabad  Houses around  Australia (excluding NSW headed by Rabbi P Feldman ) this issue and all future issues should be discussed and agreed upon to by the three Head Shiluchim  and not by one individual independently taking severe action of this nature on his own accord.

The letter and action taken by Rabbi CZ Groner was without consent and should be retracted. I strongly urge the letter against Rabbi C Herzog should be withdrawn forthwith.

I would like to conclude with the Blessing of

The two of them have become a joke
Why did Chaim Tzvi write this now?
What was he planning to do if Herzog defies him just as he has been doing for years?
Yossel was put under pressure by Levi Mochkin and Henry Herzog to come out against Chaim Tzvi.
Yossel has a conflict of interest as the three crooks are all in business together.
Now this has become an issue of who is in charge of shluchim
Where is Reb Arol Serebryanski in all this?
