R kaminetsky should review this vayikra 4:22

אֲשֶׁ֥ר נָשִׂ֖יא יֶֽחֱטָ֑א וְעָשָׂ֡ה אַחַ֣ת מִכָּל־מִצְוֺת֩ יְהוָ֨ה אֱלֹהָ֜יו אֲשֶׁ֧ר לֹא־תֵעָשֶׂ֛ינָה בִּשְׁגָגָ֖ה וְאָשֵֽׁם׃

אשר נשיא יחטא — The word אשר is connected in meaning with ‎‎‏אשרי “happy”. Happy is the generation whose prince (king) takes care to bring an atonement sacrifice even for an inadvertent act of his; how much the more certain is it that he will do penance for his wilful sins (Sifra, Vayikra Dibbura d'Chovah, Section 5 1; Horayot 10b)

אשר נשיא יחטא. ידוע הפי׳ דנשיאתו גורמת שיהא עלול לחטא. וכ״כ הספורנו. והנה עוד יש במקרא לשון שאינו מדויק כלל. דכתיב אשר לא תעשינה בשגגה. והכי מיבעי ועשה בשגגה אחת וגו׳ אשר לא תעשינה ואשם. והכי כתיב ביחיד אלא מרומז דהנשיאות גורמת לחטוא בעבירות חמורות כ״כ אשר לא תעשינה בשגגה. שאין דרך לחטוא בהם אפילו בשגגה:


  1. Beautiful comment of the Netziv.
    Next week we start Horayot daf hayomi
    Horayot 10b:
    Our Rabbis taught: When a ruler sinneth [Lev. IV, 22]; R. Johanan b. Zakkai said: Happy [When, אשר , is rendered happy like אשרי] is the generation whose ruler brings a sacrifice for a sin he has committed unwillingly. If its ruler brings a sacrifice, is there any need to say what one of the common people would do; and if he brings a sacrifice for a sin he has committed unwillingly, is there any need to say what he would do in case of a sin committed willfully?
    I don’t see our religious leaders recognizing that they have sinned.
    “The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: When a person sins and commits a trespass against the Lord by dealing deceitfully with his fellow in the matter of a deposit or a pledge, or through robbery, or by defrauding his fellow, or by finding something lost and lying about it; if he swears falsely regarding any one of the various things that one may do and sin thereby—when one has thus sinned and, realizing his guilt, would restore that which he got through robbery or fraud, or the deposit that was entrusted to him, or the lost thing that he found, or anything else about which he swore falsely, he shall repay the principal amount and add a fifth part to it. He shall pay it to its owner when he realizes his guilt. Then he shall bring to the priest, as his penalty to the Lord, a ram without blemish from the flock, or the equivalent, as a guilt offering. The priest shall make expiation on his behalf before the Lord, and he shall be forgiven for whatever he may have done to draw blame thereby.” (Leviticus 5:20-26).
    Rashi [Sapirstein Edition]: When he will develop the self-awareness to repent to know and to confess that he has sinned and has become guilty. [Note 7] The verse says “So it shall be, that he will sin and become guilty, he will return the robbed item.” Not everyone who sins and becomes guilty returns what he robbed. Thus it is implicit that the sinner repented of his sin---“So it shall be, when he will recognize that he has sinned and has become guilty” (Mizrachi).
    The ORA, Agunah International etc against Aaron Friedman. Also the Mendel Epstein against Aaron Friedman that we saw in federal court before Judge Freida Wolfson. Rabbi Mendel Epstein is a highly respected founder of a bais Yacov in Brooklyn. Rabbi K, rosh yeshiva. They and their supporters don’t respond here.

  2. “R kaminetsky should review this vayikra 4:22”
    Bravo!! Susan should review: “when one has thus sinned and, realizing his guilt, would restore that which he got through robbery or fraud, or the deposit that was entrusted to him, or the lost thing that he found” (Leviticus 5:23).
    Daattorah, may I show you what I sent yesterday to Judge Prus, NYS Ct of Appeals, NYS Commission on Judicial Conduct, and TIAA?
    2. The NYS Court of Appeals writes me: “March 9, 2018 Gerald Aranoff 8 Miriam Haneviah Street Bnei Brak, Israel 51583 Dear Mr. Aranoff: I return enclosed your letter dated March 4, 2018. It is not necessary or appropriate to send to the Court of Appeals copies of documents filed with other courts. Very truly yours, John P. Asiello''
    3. It is necessary and appropriate for the NYS Court of Appeals, Susan, your honor Judge Eric I. Prus, the NYS Commission on Judicial Conduct, and TIAA to deal with the issue of the (fake/fraudulent) 1995 Judge Rigler Order of Separation that Susan and your honor are refusing to send me a copy of. Susan and your honor Judge Eric I. Prus continued silence is the biggest proof of criminal guilt in the matter.
    4. May I talk of the NYS Ct of Appeals? NYS Ct of Appeals gave me motion number 2017--1101 11/13/2017 and motion number 2018--36 1/8/2018 to appeal the Judge Eric I.\ Prus ruling: “The defendant's motions dated September 30, 2013 and October 2, 2013 are hereby denied. Post judgment motions are to be submitted by Order to Show Cause and served pursuant to the requirements of CPLR \S2103. Defendant has failed to comply with either of these requirements. Furthermore, in action against the defendant initiated by his ex-wife, Index No. 23213--1991, the defendant was sanctioned $20,000 for filing repetitive and frivolous motions. Defendant, by Court Order, was prohibited from filing any further motions until he paid the full amount of sanctions owed. At this time, the sanctions amount totals $25,000 and the defendant has failed to pay said amount.”
