Cooke vs Yeshivah

Waks has left the country and is busy with much bigger things, like promoting himself on the global stage.

[redacted] is no longer relevant and has gone silent.

Bruce Cooke keeps taking the fight up to Yeshivah

He made a long submission to the VQRA against Rabbi Glick and was told that Glick has no case to answer.

He spread some rumours about Nechama Bendet and the ESS contract which were completely false. He keeps mentioning her as often as possible.

Everyone at Yeshivah knows that Rabbi Telsner is a lame duck and just waiting for a deal for him to walk away, but Cooke keeps slamming him.

Latest target is Hersh Cooper who is still a trustee but is busy behind the scenes setting up a new constitution where someone like him could not be a director because he doesn’t live in the community. Is he a hypocrite or is he fixing a big problem with the current structure?

He even attacks Rabbi Groner, who is dead, and can’t answer for what he did and why back then. That is low. Anyone who dares defend what Rabbi Groner did is also on Bruce’s hit list.

Bruce: all these people are either gone or on the way out. What do you hope to achieve except throw mud?

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.

Rabbi Chaim Tzvi Groner
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
������ ����� ����� ����
Rabbi Yossel Gunick
Head Shilach Australia

 

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?

Chabad HQ vs Chabad Melbourne

The governance review panel has released their recommendations.
The parents and friends are not happy with them.
They are not happy with anything that comes from the Yeshivah.
Now Chabad HQ have got involved after all these years having nothing to do with Melbourne.
What are they scared of? That Chaim Tzvi Groner will lose control?
What can they really do about this?
Manny Waks wants the community to force the trustees to hand over to “capable and independent trustees”
He is the biggest fool of all – no-one can force the trustees to do anything. Not Krinsky and Shemtov, not Manny Waks, and not the community.
The only power is with Nechama Bendet and Sholom Mendel Kluwgant.

Royal Commission Hearing

Readers have asked for a special topic to talk about the Royal Commission hearing next week. The purpose of the hearing is in the link.
Everyone’s favourite secret recorder and leaker of conversations has been very busy. Anyone with half a brain can see that http://www.theage.com.au/national/jewish-sex-abuse-victims-pressured-not-to-assist-police-secret-tapes-and-emails-reveal-20150127-12zcfa.html and http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/yeshivah-police-target-declares-it-ok-to-kill-jews-who-report-abuse-20150129-1312vo.html have nothing to do with the purpose of the hearing.

Weinberg vs Chabad

Phillip Weinberg has blamed the whole of Chabad for the child sex abuse crimes.

He has been campaigning for people not to send their kid to Chabad day care and school in protest.

He launched a petition for Don Wolf and Rabbi Glick to apologize and resign, but after a month he doesn’t even have 500 signatures and they are mostly from people who aren’t even part of the local community.

The latest thing is that he has attacked the Shabbos Project. First he said people who go to Shabbos Project events at a Chabad House should “ask the Rabbi why the same people who were in charge of Chabad when children were sexually abused, remain in charge of Chabad today”. Then, he went further and said “There are many ways to support The Shabbos Project without supporting Chabad and institutional cover ups of child sex abuse” which is saying people should stay away from Chabad.

His post on Facebook got 10 comments attacking this stupidity and calling this a boycott, but this morning all the comments were removed!

Weinberg is attacking the whole Chabad for coverups, but then he himself deletes any comments that are critical. What a hypocrite! Manny Waks has done the same thing with critical comments on Facebook. ENOUGH! NO MORE SILENCE! NO MORE CENSORSHIP!

If someone has a screen shot of the comments, please send them here so we can post them.

Besides all of that, Wolf already apologized more than 3 years ago, and he thinks that Wolf is in charge of the entire Chabad and that Yeshivah is responsible for what every Chabad House in Melbourne does. What an idiot!

Groner vs Herzog

Here is the history of the last 15 years

In 1998, Rabbi Groner OBM appointed Chaim Herzog as shliach in Melbourne CBD
Herzog began harassing anyone who he thought was a competitor
This continued for many years and is still happening
His victims include: Eliezer Kornhauser, Benyomin Serebryanski, David Werdiger, Shlomo Nathanson, Dovid Gutnick & Menachem Stern
In 2008 Rabbi Groner OBM died and Chaim Tzvi Groner took his place as head shliach, with Yossel Gutnick and Arel SerebryanskiHerzog got Serebryanski delisted as a shliach and scared Nathanson away from doing peulos in Docklands
At the end of 2010, Groner and Telsner wrote a letter to Serebryanski confirming that Herzog was a shliach in the CBD
Just before the kinus in 2012, Chaim Tzvi Groner wrote a letter to Herzog saying he was no longer under his head shlichus
Herzog took him to Vaad Rabonei Lubavitch and claimed that Groner had no right to sack him without the agreement of the other 2 head shluchim
Vaad Rabonei Lubavitch said they have to bring the case to beis din or zablo and in the meantime, there is an ikkul against publicizing it
Groner has been ready to go to beis din for many months
Herzog came back from overseas a couple months ago and resumed stalking Stern and Werdiger
Chaim Tzvi Groner had the ikkul removed and publicized the sacking
Herzog made a public statement that Groner had no right to sack him without the agreement of the other 2 head shluchim
Herzog has been publicizing his Chanukah event and the ad says the Premier is coming

What will happen next? Is this finally it for Herzog? Stay tuned …

Manny vs Rabbis

Latest target for Manny is Lesches from Sydney, now living in Monsey NY.

http://www.theage.com.au/national/rabbi-apologises-for-sex-abuse-comments-20130624-2ortr.html
Also picked up by JTA and everyone else

http://www.timesofisrael.com/chabad-rabbi-shocks-with-views-on-abuse-sex-with-animals/

Again Manny and useful idiots searching the world for Rabbis who say bad things about sex abuse and then shaming them
http://www.tzedek.org.au/media/media-releases/response-to-fairfax-article-re-rabbi-boruch-lesches/
Says because there are 10 Rabbis so far it means all frummer yidden are bad

People forgot to ask – who recorded it?
Manny says it wasn’t him but does anyone believe he was not part of it?
What else did Lesches say?
What was the conversation about?
All we have is Fairfax edited “highlights”
