  3. I was in Dallas last month. The community is very erlich. The people are great. My guess is that most people are obvious there to what the head of EJF did.

    So please advise, who can we call/email/contact to make sure this does not happen?

    Who can we contact in Dallas to know to distance themselves?

  4. R' Eidensohn,

    I'm amazed that those in the leadership position within the Dallas community are allowing this seminar to proceed. Granted, it's probably safe to assume that this seminar was planned out months in advance (i.e. before the scandal broke), as large seminars almost always are. However, even if the leaders of the Chareidi community in Dallas are in doubt regarding the veracity of the accusations against R' Tropper (I assume that is what is going through their minds), hosting an event like this while the dust has not yet even begun to settle seems like much too strong a vote of confidence for R' Tropper. I find this mind-boggling.

    That being said, I feel that your post, as it stands, is a bit too alarmist. The web page you link to clearly states that it is a sample schedule (in fact, its URL indicates it as such: http://www.ejfseminars.org/sample_schedule). There is nothing on that page that suggests that the speakers listed there are in fact the ones who will be speaking at the upcoming event in Dallas. I think that this should be noted on the post itself.

  5. Rabbi, this is misleading.

    To be fair, if you look at the actual website this is not the schedule for an upcoming event in Dallas. This is a sample schedule for their events in general and they mention on the same page that there is an upcoming event in Dallas.

  9. I e-mailed Yonasan Rosenblum and he says he is not speaking. This is a sample schedule and it is misleadingly portrayed here.

  10. Is this another gerus Tropper did and he has absolute control over him?

  14. I'd say the first order of business is to confirm whether this event is still going to be held as scheduled. Has anyone done this?

  15. Rosenblum is a starry eyes BT (or as Rabbi Eidensohn eloquently says Idealistic BT) , who cannot believe that someone haredi can do or be wrong.

    He probably still believes that Tropper who has long beard and wears black hat is innocent

    ==============
    Your confusing two issues - starry eyed don't see reality while idealistic do.

    Jonathan Rosenblum is far from being starry eyed.

    He in fact knows exactly what Tropper is and I don't think it differs from yours or my view.

  17. Good, if noone shows up, it spells the end of the EJF

  18. Monsey Tzadik,
    change your name to monsey Blabber!
    Peretz Eichler does all the documentation, production of video, interviews and is a noted lecturer thereby has a title of Rabbi as many who teach Torah do!His work there has much documented stories of many who have been helped and inspired by EJF's program!!! so stop blabbing off

  19. Peretz Eichler does all the documentation, production of video...has a title of Rabbi...

    Did he do the videos of Tropper with Rachel? or the videos of Amir?, the videos of the Satmar guy ?

    BTW, Where did rabbi Eichler get his semicha ?

  20. It just occurred to me that there is real value in posting this sample schedule in order to simply note that the names of people such as R' Jonathan Rosenblum and R' Doron Kornbluth are still up on the EJF website. This gives the impression that these people are still affiliated with EJF and participating in their activities. I'm assuming (or, at least, I'm certainly hoping) that most, if not all, of these individuals are seriously reconsidering their relationship with EJF at the moment.

    I wonder if R' Rosenblum (or any of the people listed on that web page) has tried to get EJF to expunge his name from their website.

  22. HEARD THEY OFFERED "HONORARIUMS" TO DALLAS RABBONIM TO PARTICIPATE MANY RABBONIM WERE INSTRUCTED BY THEIR POSKIM NOT TO ATTEND OR TAKE A NICKEL

    one rabbi who has no position in the community has accepted "thousands to come for the weekend".

    Yes they are there, and are too explicit to link to from here. A search for the word andy will find them there.
