Debate Starts on Crown Heights Rabbis’ Gag Order


A debate on free speech is rippling through the Lubavitcher Hasidic community in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.

Last week, the rabbinical court known as the Beth Din of Crown Heights ordered members of the Lubavitcher community not to speak to the police or the news media on a range of issues related to crime.

The one-page edict (see below) bars members of the community of 20,000 from giving the news media information about another community member that could lead to "an investigation or intensified prosecution by any law enforcement agency." [...]


  1. It is no secret that the Brooklyn Administration for Childrens Services ("ACS") and the Brooklyn Family Court Judges routinely get pressured by the Crown Heights Hassidic Jewish Community to either squash or destroy any and all Sexual Abuse allegations or investigations against Crown Heights residents/sexual abusers.

    If you are a Pedophile/Child Sexual Abuser, move to Crown Heights, New York.

    The FBI, NYPD, and ACS is powerless to either investigate, prosecute, or convict you there.

    And Mayor Bloomberg, Governor Andrew Cuomo, Assemblyman Dov Hikind, and Andrew Weiner will do nothing to help those sexually abused children either.

    This city sucks.


    Here are some new twists to an old story that doesn't seem to go away. Leib Tropper's people hijacked this shul and installed Yaakov Barros as the rabbi. This is the first time it's reported in the papers that the shul also mistreated the almana of the rav even before Rabbi Gottlieb and kicked forced her from shul property to a crack-cocaine shvartza building.

  3. Disgusting OU behaviorDecember 14, 2010 at 4:11 PM

    The poor mashgiach and his mashgicha wife who the OU lynched for blowing the whistle on kashrus violations at Montefiore hospital have been reduced to begging in front of shuls so that they can pay rent, heating bills and put food on the table.

    The OU is lying and even staged a phony "independent" audit to cover up their crimes with a rabbi who they think no one knows is on the OU payroll.
