I have not posted anything on my blog in a very long time as I am very discouraged with how everyone lets these people get away with everything they want as they want their money, contribution or vote.

We live in a world that let these chabads be 501c 111’s and not pay taxes and do not do any good. They try to initiate Jews into Judaism and keep them there…that’s it. In shabby places they conduct their only business and make a good living from it.

If they educate they charge if they feed they charge and if the care for children they charge. Did you ever hear of them donating or giving service to anything. No!

So you can see I still feel the same way about them but do not have the time or the energy to fight this despicable cult anymore.Regular normal Jews should fight these people and they don’t and they ignore.


Lubavitch Rubashkin stays in jail…there is a God

Judge Upholds Rubashkin Bail Denial

The Jewish Week

Staff Writer

A federal judge in Iowa refused again Monday to set bail for Shlomo Rubashkin, the former CEO of Agriprocessors, Inc., the bankrupt kosher slaughterhouse, who has been charged with bank fraud and immigration law violations.
“Defendant does not offer any additional facts relating to detention, but simply offers additional conditions which he believes will reasonably assure his appearance at trial,” wrote Magistrate Jon Stuart Scoles.
“The court concludes that defendant’s suggestion of additional conditions of release under these circumstances does not support reconsideration,” he added.
Scoles made passing reference to Israel’s Law of Return, which Assistant U.S. Attorney Peter E. Deegan, Jr., had argued made Rubashkin a flight risk because the law allows all Jews to become citizens the moment they enter the country.

Scoles’ Nov. 20 decision denying Rubashkin bail, the judge cited the law and noted that at least one other Agriprocessors’ defendant — who held Israeli citizenship — had already fled to Israel.
Defense attorneys pounced on the government’s claim in asking Scoles to reconsider his decision.
“It is ironic that a law designed to provide refuge to persecuted Jews has now become the basis for detaining  Jews who might otherwise have been released pending trial,” they wrote.
Deegan repeated the argument in his legal brief rebutting  Rubashkin’s quest for a new bail hearing. He cited the fact that Rubashkin and his wife had traveled to Israel last December as evidence that he has “ties to a foreign country.” He also submitted to the court Rubashkin’s travel itinerary and a receipt from a hotel in Israel.
Deegan wrote also that the “government’s argument that defendant is incrementally more likely to flee because of his de facto citizenship in a foreign country is hardly unusual.” He then cited the case of a defendant who held both U.S. and Iranian citizenship and dual passports.
The prosecutor noted also that it is indisputable that Rubashkin is entitled to Israeli citizenship under Israel’s Law of Return that grants any Jew the right to citizenship and to settle in Israel.
“That defendant’s right to foreign citizenship is based upon defendant’s cultural heritage is solely a matter of foreign law,” the prosecutor argued. “It simply makes no difference, for the purposes of the government’s argument, how that right is derived. Accordingly, it is a mischaracterization to say the government’s argument improperly accounts for defendant’s race or religion.”
Marc Stern, acting co-executive director of the American Jewish Congress and an attorney, said he found “very troubling” the government’s argument that Jews are a greater flight risk because of Israel’s Law of Return.
“I don’t know why the government refuses to withdraw this claim,” he said. “When the implications of the argument were called to the government’s attention and they persisted in it, you have to wonder what is really going on.”
Stern pointed out that Jews are sensitive to allegations that they have loyalty to both the United States and Israel.
“If the government persists in this, we have to wonder what somebody is thinking — or more importantly what somebody is not thinking,” he added.
But in denying Rubashkin a new bail hearing, Scoles said Rubashkin’s lawyers had attached “too much significance” to his mention of the Law of Return in his decision. In fact, he said, he accepts the statement of Rubashkin’s lawyer, Baruch Weiss, that his client would be subject to extradition should he flee to Israel.
Weiss said he plans to appeal the judge’s decision to District Court Judge Linda Reade.
“The position the prosecutor has taken is unconscionable and outrageous,” he said. “We are going to appeal the judge’s decision and hope the prosecutor will not repeat this unconstitutional argument.”

Leviev stops funding the Lubavitch

Cash crisis rocks Chabad

From The Jewish Chronicle
Anshel Pfeffer
November 13, 2008

Benefactor: Lev Leviev

The world’s biggest Jewish outreach group faces a cash crisis fuelled by fears that its biggest donor, billionaire diamond mogul Lev Leviev, may slash funding due to his own financial difficulties.

Chabad has around 4,000 emissaries in 70 countries, running 3,300 community centres worldwide.
Sources within the movement say many of the emissaries in charge of running Jewish religious activities around the globe have been told that their funding will be stopped.

Mr Leviev’s spokesman acknowledged there had been cuts but insisted they were due to a general downturn in donations to his educational charity.

In the Former Soviet Union, where Chabad dominates communal services for most of the estimated 1.5 million Jews, senior educational leaders have confirmed that many schools founded and supported by Mr Leviev’s Or Avner network have had their funding stopped or limited over the past few weeks.

The Chief Rabbi of Russia, Rabbi Berel Lazar, has been holding emergency meetings in recent days with his emissaries to discuss the crisis.

The subject will be high on the agenda next week when thousands of emissaries from Chabad – also known as Lubavitch after the Russian town where it originated – will meet at their headquarters in New York.

One philanthropist who works with Chabad said: “Dozens of shlichim are coming to me asking for help. Some of them have taken bank loans on the assumption that Mr Leviev’s funds would repay the loans and now they are distraught.”

The Or Avner network of 120 schools and 60 kindergartens in the FSU, Eastern Europe, Germany, North America and Israel – the world’s biggest private Jewish education network – was founded by Mr Leviev, who has given it an estimated £50 million a year over the past few years.

Mr Leviev is also the main benefactior for the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia, the Chabad-dominated largest Jewish organisation in Russia, of which he is president. Another major donor of the Federation is billionaire Roman Abramovich.

The turmoil in Chabad comes as Mr Leviev, in 2006 ranked as the richest man in Israel, faces financial problems of his own.

The share value of his main holding company, Africa Israel, this year dropped by 86 per cent on the Tel Aviv stock exchange and almost all its shares are now collateral to the Israeli banks, to which it owns over £2 billion.

While the 2008 Forbes Rich List put Mr Leviev’s net worth at $4.5 billion (£3bn), not including his diamond mining concerns in Russia and Africa, the Israeli business media has estimated that his worth has slumped by at least 60 per cent in recent months and he has been trying to sell off major parts of his empire.

Mr Leviev’s spokesman in Israel denied that he had cut off support for the Lubavitch organisations in Russia.

He said: “Mr Leviev sent out clear instructions to every emissary to find ways to economise without harming the core activities and instructed the headquarters to check how to keep as many operations running as possible, despite the decline in donations from philanthropists in Russia and the United States.

“Some of the emissaries are running schools with too few children and they have been told that no more funding will be forthcoming this year.”

Earlier this year, Mr Leviev moved to London after buying a £35 million house in Highgate. The British branch of Chabad is not expected to be affected by Mr Leviev’s situation as it is financed by different donors.

Lubavitch “Rabbi” arrested in Albany on Child Abuse

From The Times Capital Region Headlines –

An Albany area rabbi has been arrested on sex abuse charges stemming from alleged incidents involving a 13-year-old boy.

Albany police detectives arrested Yaakov Weiss, 28, of Loudonville Monday and charged him with two counts of third-degree sex abuse and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, all misdemeanors.

Details pertaining to the case were not immediately available, but Albany police spokesman Det. James Miller said the charges have to do with Weiss’ alleged involvement with the boy on at least two occasions — one in November 2007 and the other earlier this year.

The arrest was part of an ongoing investigation that’s continuing and comes on the first day of the Jewish High Holy Days on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

Weiss was arraigned in Albany City Court and released but it was unclear if bail was set.

His attorney Arnold Proskin was not immediately available for comment.

Weiss, who adheres to a missionary branch of Judaism know as Chabad-Lubavitch, moved to Colonie from Iowa in 2004 with his wife Rosa and an infant daughter. Soon after arriving in the Capital Region, Weiss founded the Chabad of Colonie and the Chabad Hebrew School. He has been outspoken on the issue of public religious expression.

In 2005, he requested a Hanukkah display at Colonie Center Mall but was denied. The mall displayed a 6-foot menorah the following year after Weiss and his supporters lobbied the mall for representation of the Jewish holiday.

Last year, Weiss was part of a movement to have the state Legislature pass a bill mandating a moment of silence each day at school for students to reflect in their own way on the importance of the spiritual in their lives.

Morris and Udi: A Story of Unrequited Love

How a Five Towns macher brought down the prime minister of Israel.

New York Magazine

ISRAELI PROSECUTOR: Please go on and tell us what you mean by “intense relationship” [with Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert].

MORRIS TALANSKY: I really loved the man. I really did.

ISRAELI PROSECUTOR: What was Prime Minister Olmert’s attitude toward you?


Morris Talansky, the rabbi and Long Island businessman whose testimony brought down the prime minister of Israel, instructs me to meet him in Lawrence, a few minutes from his home in Woodsburgh, Long Island. “There’s a kosher Dunkin’ Donuts,” he says curtly.

The Dunkin’ Donuts is in the Five Towns (Hewlett, Lawrence, Inwood, Woodmere, which includes Woodsburgh, and Cedarhurst), the suburban homeland that Jews have carved out of Long Island sprawl. Driving there, I pass landscaped yards—hydrangeas are in bloom—and subdevelopments with gently winding roads. From one I can see a country club, a seat of the Five Towns aristocracy, which is for all intents and purposes exclusively Jewish.

The Dunkin’ Donuts shares none of the neighborhood’s joyful materialism. There’s a Formica counter, a dimpled drop ceiling, and, off to the side, a cheerless sitting area that management has tried to liven up with loud pop music. I spot one seated customer. He is unshaven, with several days of cottony white stubble. He’s pivoted toward me, slumped against the back of the chair.

“Morris?” I ask. I don’t recognize him, though I’d seen him in Israel the week before.

He nods, though barely. He looks worn out.

Morris is angry with the media, which he blames for the recent turn in his life. For a time, his business life was in shambles. Friends peeled away. In shul, people he’s known for years engage in lashon hara, evil gossip, and against a fellow Jew, whispering about his motives, his credibility, his complicated business life.

“I hope God makes them pay for what they did to me,” Morris has said. He means the media.

Of course, it wasn’t the media that got Morris involved in this mess. Partly it was his own ideals. Morris had loved the idea of Israel from the time he was a little boy growing up in Brooklyn. As he climbed ladders, both spiritual and material, his devotion had blossomed. One consequence was a close relationship with Ehud Olmert, an ambitious, skilled, and tenacious Israeli politician who was climbing himself, from Knesset member to minister of Health to mayor of Jerusalem and finally to prime minister. To Morris, Olmert almost seemed like an incarnation of Israel. “Olmert talked about the hopes and dreams as well as the struggles of Israel,” says Morris. “There was no one more articulate.” For Morris, Olmert became a cause. As Olmert ascended, so did Morris.

Then this past April, while Morris visited his apartment in Jerusalem, the Israeli police pounded on his door one Sunday at 6 a.m. They took him to the station. They confiscated his passport, interrogated him nine times, and, before their corruption investigation was even complete, rushed him onto the witness stand. If they had waited, Morris might have disappeared back to Long Island, they claimed.

Morris took the stand about a month later and, under questioning by the prosecutor, told an explosive story. Morris estimated that over the past fifteen years, he’d given his friend Olmert $150,000.

“What way did you hand over the money?” the prosecutor asked.

“In an envelope,” said Morris.

Investigators insinuated that the money was in exchange for official favors, and that there were hundreds of thousands of dollars at issue. But Morris, like Olmert, insisted that the “cash envelopes,” as they were called in Israel, weren’t bribes intended to promote Morris’s ventures. In fact, Morris didn’t seem to have many business interests that Olmert might help; Olmert did try to open at least one door for “my dear friend,” as he called Morris, though that had been quickly slammed shut. The money seemed more in the manner of friendly gifts. Morris picked up some tabs; lent Olmert money for, Morris said, a vacation; and contributed to his campaigns. Morris passed along his own money, and also raised funds at kaffeeklatsch events.

But the image of the country’s top official tucking envelopes of cash into his suitcase, as Morris described, looked unseemly at best. Olmert had long been an unpopular prime minister. A half-dozen other investigations are circling around him. But it was the vivid imagery supplied by his friend that finally undid the prime minister. Israelis already suspected he was corrupt; now they had a picture, even if it wasn’t exactly a smoking gun. “Talansky robbed him of whatever popularity he had,” Nachum Barnea, one of the country’s leading newspaper columnists, told me.

P. 26 “Over the years, his religious and business lives had become completely intertwined…..willing to launder money”

p. 29 ” He felt that in America-even in the greater Five Towns- a Jew is always in some measure on foreign turf.” No matter how integrated you feel you are , he tlls me, anti-semitism lurks in very sophisticated places.”

Rubashkin’s meat is only at 40% of the capacity before the raid and the business is quickly going down, unable to recover from the ongoing Raids, Arrests and loss of workers.

As a result, Anash are being requested to to help lend money to Rubashkin as last ditch effort to perhaps avert Rubashkins total demise.

Mitzvah Lefarsem Oysey Mitzvah!

Sholom Ber Drizin reportedly lent Rubashkin approximately 1.5 Million dollars, recently and DaasHakohol knows of one other source who lent Rubashkin $50,000.00 and many other members of Anash who have been asked and have kindheartedly opened their hearts to have Rachmones on Rubashkin, who is now in the process of going under.

Mitzvah Lefarsem Oysey Mitzvah and especially in this great Mitzvah of Tzedaka for Rubashkin, will IYH publicize all donors who will take part in this great Mitzvah of Gemilas Chassodim and Tzedaka for Rubashkin.

Lubavitch punks arrested for assault and drug possession!

Fallsburg Police Arrest Two Frum Teens
11:00AM EST: Two troubled teenagers from Crown Heights, Brooklyn have been arrested and are in custody in the Town of Fallsburg, YWN has learned.
The two teens were apparently standing in front of Gombos Bakery on South Fallsburg’s Main Street early Friday morning – and were displaying drugs to a vendor selling flowers in front of the store.
When the vendor told the teens to put the drugs away and kindly move away, the teens assaulted him.
The Fallsburg PD responded, and although the teens had fled the scene and dropped the drugs, officers located them – along with the drugs – and placed them under arrest.
Catskills Hatzolah responded for the victim assaulted, who was treated for facial trauma.
The two boys are currently in the Fallsburg jail-cell, and were arraigned by a Fallsburg judge a few moments ago. Sadly, the boys – who claimed that they are “homeless” – were not cooperative with the judge – who raised the $2,000 bail price for both boys. One was raised to $5,000, and one was raised to $2,500. The boys were charged with 3rd Degree Assault, and criminal possession of marijuana
Fallsburg Police Chief Simmy Williams tells YWN that he has reached out to a representative from Kosher Coaching, and other community ‘Askanim’ to ensure that the teens get the proper help they need.
“These are obviously troubled teens who need help getting their lives back together,” Chief Williams said. “The law was broken, and a judge will deal with that, but they still need help – and that’s why I made sure to reach out to the appropriate organizations.”
Additionally, Chief Williams told YWN that Main Street in the Town of South Fallsburg is under 24hr surveillance with cameras, which helps the police department with many crimes.
