    …It appears that almost everyone in Monsey ate non-kosher chicken and beef…

    That is absolutely ridiculous. There are hundreds upon hundreds of families in Monsey who never shop in Hatzlacha for the simple reason it’s on the other side of town and we have Wesley Kosher, Rockland Kosher & Monsey Glatt much closer.

    Spare the extrapolations; stick to the facts.

    Hmmm… Funny, I have read hundreds of comments all day about this and spoken to various people regarding this issue and no one has blamed any distributor.. just the store owner…And here someone posts the same ranting 3 times, specifing a person’s name and business name…

    …Now, “Don’t you smell a RAT???”

    After doing much research & speaking to various Rabbonim I will try to inform all readers of the FACTS until this point.

    There is a grocery store in Monsey NY called Hatzlocha Grocery. They “sub-let” space to Shevach Butcher Store. Shevach buys wholesale chickens from Vineland and KJ (AKA Satmar) meats. Shevach then repackages the chickens and meats and writes [for example] “Shevach – Vineland” on the package. Hatzlocha Grocery carries the meats packaged by Shevach.

    Last week the owner of Hatzlocha Grocery made a family Simcha and in attendance was his brother-in-law who happens to be a manager at “K.J. Meats” (AKA SATMAR MEATS). His brother-in-law happened to ask him “where did you get these chickens from”? He answered “from my shelves”. The brother-in-law then asked him “how could Shevach be selling chickens if we (KJ Meats) stopped selling them product ?” The brother-in-law then said “he must have had old stock”.

    The owner of Hatzlocha also found out that Vineland had stopped selling him chickens as well.
    The owner of Hatzlocha went into the store the following morning and noticed that the shelves were freshly stocked. He approached the owner of Shevach & asked him “since Vineland & KJ Meats stopped selling you product, where are these chickens coming from?” The owner of Shevach answered that “I buy from some other distributors”.

    It was then verified that the owner was LYING and that he never purchased from those “other” distributors.
    The local Rabbonim were contacted, amongst them the Skverer Dayan who paskned that an immediate search of his refrigerators would be done.

    A search that was done that night turned up some shocking evidence: CASES OF NON-KOSHER CHICKENS!!

    Many of you might be wondering how that determination was made. There are a few reasons.
    #1-Kosher chickens are very yellow & these chickens were extremely pale.
    #2-Kosher chickens have feathers still on the skin at the time of purchase & these had none.
    #3-When a chicken is kashered all of the insides of the chicken are removed. These chickens were in possession of their kidneys still.
    #4-There was no trace of salt on the chickens.
    #5-No stamp or seal from any kosher butcher were on the boxes.

    After confronting the owner of Shevach Meats for an explanation, he admitted to the Rabonim this story: He claimed that those chickens that were found were sold to him by a truck driver of Nassau Distributors on the black market – but was reassured by the NON-JEWISH truck driver that the chickens were kosher; from a fire that Empire Chicken Company had recently had.

    This is where the story ENDS. All other stories that are going around are FALSE.

    There was a meeting which ended today at approximately 5:00 pm at which 20 Rabbonim from Monsey were in attendance. This included both Chassidih and Litvish Rabbonim. The purpose of the meeting was to issue a UNITED P’sak for the entire Monsey community. The P’sak will not be signed by the Rabbonim

    Monsey, NY – Shevach Meats who rented some space inside Hatzlacha grocery store in Monsey, NY was caught selling nonkosher (treifa) chicken as Kosher from Kiryas Yoel.

    His, and the hashgacha’s house of cards came falling down in the middle of last week, when one of the owners of the grocery was told by one worker of Kiryat Joel meat slaughterhouse offhand, that the butcher had not recieved a shipment of chicken from them in 3 weeks. But the owners realized that they had been selling Kiryas Joel chicken the entire time, so they got scared and called their hashgacha.

    The Mashgichim broke into the butcher’s cooler at night and found 19 cases of unmarked chicken, they tasted the skin and it did not taste salty at all. Also did they found that the kidneys were still intact, which on kosher chicken shouldn’t be, since it’s removed before salting.
    At that time they called in the butcher who insisted it was Empire chicken. They checked with an Empire Mashgiach who lives in Monsey who told them that it isn’t their kosher chicken.

    He was immediately ejected from Hatzlacha, as the investigation continued, more came out and it was discovered that for at least 6 months he had been selling twice as much meat retail as he had bought from known Shechita houses, not even counting what he had sold wholesale to halls, yeshivas etc.
    Furthermore, some people had noticed for months that the chicken was less salty than usual, when they asked the butcher about it, he told them that they are using a new low sodium salt in the kashering process, which was false, and that may also extend to meat too.
    H’Rav Weissmandel put out a letter advising everyone to kasher all their keilim.

  8. Guy from Monsey

    I would say we should NOT jump to conclusions at this time until we know 120% for sure who was at fault here.

    I would not believe (some) rabbanim either. There needs to be a thourough independent investigation.

  9. Ear to Sidewalk...

    Why do people feel the need to steal other blog’s work and re-post them here, without any attribution?

    There are at least 2 such postings above from theyeshivaworld.com and lamedzayin.blogspot.com

  10. To verify the extent of kashrut fraud, all one has to do is count the amount of supposed kosher tongues shechted ( ritually slaughtered) in the month of June, (thousands of simchas and dinners) and tally up the amount of tongues served at these affairs.

    NO WAY JOSE….DO THE NUMBERS CORRESPOND!

  11. concerned monsey dweller

    you people really need to get your info straight because aside from getting information incorrect on your blogs, you are blaming the wrong people. Firstly, the name mentioned on the above blog as the one responsible is not the name of the person who is in fact responsible. Look into the facts. Not even sure where that name came from. Secondly, some people are writing meat and chicken and this is incorrect as well. At this time, it is only the chicken that is the problem, and the meat is currently under investigation. third of all, the person responsible (who i will not name until everything comes out) has yet to even comment, so i don’t know where people are getting that he has commented. Then again, it seems that you people aren’t even aware of who is responsible. Do any of you bloggers even live in monsey because everything that i have just stated is common knowledge in monsey and amongst the rabbanim of monsey. Where on earth do you get your FALSE information from?

  12. SCOTT HOROWITZ

    I AM SCOTT HOROWITZ THE OWNER OF NASSAU PROVISIONS. TO PUT ALL RUMORS TO REST I WILL TELL YOU THE FACTS AS I KNOW THEM.
    1. WE DELIVERED PRODUCT TO SHEVACH ONLY ONE TIME IN THE MONTH OF AUGUST, THAT WAS ON AUGUST 31.
    2. MY DRIVER WHO DELIVERS THIS ROUTE WAS POINTED OUT ON AUGUST 31 TO WHOEVER WAS IN THE STORE AT THE TIME. THEY SAID THIS WAS NOT THE DRIVER WHO SOLD HIM SO CALLED BLACK MARKET CHICKENS
    3.LOGICALLY SPEAKING IF SOMEONE HAD STOLEN NON KOSHER CHICKEN WHY WOULD THEY SELL THIS TO A STORE THAT DOESN’T NORMALLY SELL THIS PRODUCT. IT IS MORE LIKELY THEY WOULD FIND A STORE THAT SELLS NON KOSHER PRODUCT.
    4. WE HAVE GPS ON ALL OF OUR TRUCKS. WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO SEE THE LOCATION OF THIS TRUCK EVERY DAY ALL DAY.
    5. WE HAVE NEVER BOUGHT OR SOLD KJ POULTRY
    6. THE MOST LIKELY SCENARIO IN MY OPINION IS THAT SOMEONE FROM SHEVACH REGULARLY PURCHASED NON KOSHER PRODUCT IN THE HUNTS POINT MARKET.HEBROUGHT THIS PRODUCT INTO THE STORE WITHOUT ANY ONE ELSE’S KNOWLEDGE.

  13. Mark

    It is clear that once again, we have all missed the issue- Mashgichim and Rabbonim are PAID to watch over these issues BUT MONEY blinds – need we say more. Yes the owner is a thief but the Rabbonim are Ovar on misleading the public – they should be begging for Hashems forgiveness as the Gemarah in Yoma says – they have no Chelek-

  14. shmueli jacobi & hindy S.

    The person who wrote the first comment about an individual with his personnal name is somebody who lost a court battle with him and is trying to besmirch his name all over for that reason, not only is that person who wrote it lying but was approached by his rabbi to go ask for forgiveness from him for doing this evil act of writing lies when everybody knows that is is pure slander, this same person also posted all over in the blogs and hydepark,

  15. shmuel goldstein

    What is a MASHGIACH for?????????????????

    They should give back all the wages they

    recieved. They FAILED us.

  16. mikee winter

    I don’t understand where the mashgiach is?Does he not go into the frig. to check out the boxes? It looks to me that he had no experience with kosher meat.The hashgachah is at fault becuase they didn’t hire a “real” mashgiach. I must say that you can’t go around being “choshaid” everybody, the law is you can trust a fellow jew. However, a store keeper who sells meat is different and needs a full time mashgiach. The mashgiach should be the only one with keys to the store. They also messed up with Mazonos Maven, when you give keys to other people, this is what happens. Hashgachah is a business like every other business, and unfortunetly it all boils down to the paycheck.

    `I hear from the grapevine that the meat came from a long island distributor, and that one of the principles is a very fine upstanding citizen, who I am sure will do all so the truth come out. As a matter of fact, this fine man and his bother that also works there, testified in court against their uncle, who is now in jail. In fact at the trial, the judge suggested that his testimony is enough already, but he insisted on spilling everything out, so the the truth should be known.
    I know that you will be reluctant to post this blog, because they are so adamant about this that they are ready to me mosser/musser nefesh.. especially yours, so you are afraid that he world know.

  18. Dovid from Monsey

    Happened across this website just now, and saw the comments above. You fellows need to spend your time doing something more productive than puting this material into writing. Many folks in Monsey are panicking about this situation, and there is nothing to panic about. Let’s just fix the problem and move on. If people ate treifa meat, it was unintentional. Hashem understands. He’ll keep this in mind when the time comes. Don’t get excited. If you treifed up your pots and pans, etc., kasher them and then take it upon yourself to learn a little more. Move on. Gut Shabbos!

  19. Uri from Brooklyn

    It is a real shame and disgrace what happened here. This is not something that should be sweeped under the rug[Business as usual]. The truth is that the haschgocho is as good as YOU being able to trust the owner,because what stops the owner[where only the haschgocho has the key to the premises]from coming to the premises at three in the morning with a locksmith and making copies of the key? The best precaution that can be taken is that any establishment that works with meat or for that matter preparation of food must have a maschgiach temidi and special locks have to be put on ALL OUTSIDE DOORS OF THE PREMISES with closed circuit cameras going to a central monitoring point[with an alarm system that can’t be bypassed in case the owner trys bringing a locksmith at nite to make duplicate keys]. In addition cameras should be set up throughout the premises that can be monitored from that central point. This equipment has to be checked on a daily basis to make sure that there is no hanky panky. If the owners do not agree to this then they should not be given haschgocho or the haschgocho should have to make it known that the owner did not agree to the cameras and let the public decide if they want to shop there.

    As far as the one who gave the haschgocho goes,he has no excuse. How did he not know that for 2-6 months the butcher had not been getting any shipments from Kiryas yoel or Vineland? If he went in a couple of times a week and checked the chickens he should have realised what was going on. All haschgochos from now on should be checking with suppliers if the butchers,takeouts,caterers etc. are getting the fresh products where they claim they are getting it from and every couple of weeks checking back with suppliers to make sure that what was delivered and whats in the store matches up.

    Lets see if FINALLY something is really going to be done or if this is BUSINESS LIKE USUAL as with the KOSHER SPOT deal in Flatbush[Where he had a previous store he was caught with awhile back and still he got Haschgocho].

    To end the father of the one who gave the Haschgocho in monse was a Yeche and a NETUREI KARTE member. Couldn’t have happened to a better person [What goes around comes around].

    THE ABISHDE NEVER SLEEPS! WE CANT FOOL HIM.
    It’s chodesh Elul so I hope that ALL of KLAL YISROEL learns a lesson from this{Including myself] that the ABISHDE is sending us a very important message.

    Debtor,
    CITIBANK (SOUTH DAKOTA), N.A.,
    Plaintiff,
    -against-
    MIRI SCHLESINGER,
    Defendant.
    COMPLAINT
    Chapter 7
    Case No 1-05-32170-DEM
    Adversary No.
    Plaintiff, Citibank (South Dakota), N.A. by its attorney, Solomon and Solomon, P.C.,
    Douglas M. Fisher counsel, complaining of the Defendant alleges as follows:
    1. That at all times hereinafter mentioned Plaintiff is a National Banking Corporation.
    2. That at all times herein after mentioned Defendant is the Debtor in the above entitled
    proceeding.
    3. The court has jurisdiction of this matter pursuant to 28 U.S.C. Section 157(b)(2)(I)
    and 1334 and 11 U.S.C. Section 523(a)(2)(C) and (A).
    2
    4. This is a core proceeding.
    5. The debtor filed a petition on October 14, 2005.
    6. The Defendant had an AT&T Universal credit card account with Plaintiff.
    7. The debtor accessed credit with regular usage and payments .
    8. Between 9/5/05 and 10/3/05 the debtor charged $538.36. The minimum due was
    $22.00. Then between 10/6/05 and 10/7/05 the debtor charged $9250.00 mostly for furniture of
    $8884.00. No payment was made.
    9. The Defendant obtained the credit under false pretenses and false representations.
    The use of the account by the Debtor is an express and implied representation that the Debtor
    had the intent and wherewithal to pay for the extended credit in accordance with the underlying
    credit terms. The creditor justifiably relied on the representations and extended credit based on
    the prior balance and lack of default on the account. In fact, it is clear that the representations of
    ability and intent to repay were false. This is a clear case in which the Debtor accessed the
    account for advance of credit without any intention or wherewithal to fully repay the credit. The
    factors in the case all evidence intent to defraud Plaintiff, they are:
    a. The debtor accessed the personal property over a short period.
    b. No payment was made toward the charges.
    c. Charges were for substantial furniture of almost $9,000.00 charged in one
    day.
    d. The debtor owns no real property and therefore no equity exists to access to
    pay creditors.
    e. The debtor has no sufficient personal property with value to liquidate to pay
    credit debt totaling over $125,000.00.
    f. The debtor shows no current income and does not disclose family income to
    pay fixed expenses let alone over $125,000.00 in credit debt.
    3
    g. The purchases aggregate over the sum of $1,225.00 accessed on an open-end
    credit account within 60 days of the filing of the petition for luxury goods
    10. As a result thereof, Plaintiff has been damaged in the sum of $9,788.36 plus interest
    for the purchases made by credit. The sum is non-dischargeable under Section
    523(a)(2)(C).
    AS FOR A SECOND CAUSE OF ACTION
    11. As a result thereof, in the event the Court finds any part of the sum due under the first
    cause of action outside 11 USC Section 523(a)(2)(C), the Plaintiff has been damaged
    in the sum found and is non-dischargeable under Section 523(a)(2)(A).
    WHEREFORE, Plaintiff demands judgment against the Defendant pursuant to
    Bankruptcy Code Sections 523(a)(2)(C) and (A) declaring the debt non-dischargeable and for
    judgment in the sum of $9,788.36 all together with disbursements and such other and further
    relief is just and proper.

    _______________________________________
    AFFIDAVIT IN SUPPORT OF DEFAULT JUDGMENT
    STATE OF MISSOURI )
    COUNTY OF PLATTE ) SS.:
    CRYSTAL BRITT being duly sworn deposes and says:
    1. I am an authorized agent CITIBANK (SOUTH DAKOTA), N.A. with
    respect to its credit accounts.
    2
    2. The scope of my job responsibilities includes the performance of collection and
    recovery services for Citibank (South Dakota), N.A..
    3. In the performance of my duties I am familiar with the manner and method by
    which Citibank (South Dakota), N.A. creates and maintains its normal books and records,
    including computer records of its credit accounts, monthly statement mailings and payments
    applied.
    4. From the books and records of the corporation kept in the regular course of its
    business, the entries in them being made in the regular course of business, I have full knowledge
    of the cause of action upon which Plaintiff is suing, and make this Affidavit in support of the
    Plaintiff’s motion for Default Judgment pursuant to Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 7055.
    This is a supplemental affidavit requested by the Court.
    5. The debtor filed a petition on October 14, 2005.
    6. The Defendant has acredit card account with Plaintiff.
    7. Between August 11, 2005 and September 2, 2005, the debtor made charges of
    $1,162.04. Returns were processed for $269.63. No payment was then made. Between
    September 13, 2005 and October 3, 2005, the debtor charged $1,966.20 including $142.59 at
    H&M, $524.79 at Macy’s, $417.53 at Sears, $200.20 again at H&M and $371.71 at Future Mom.
    No payment was made.
    8. The Petition in the case and facts contained in the Petition surrounding the charge
    all evidence intent to defraud Plaintiff, they are:
    a. The debtor accessed the credit card over a short period.
    b. No payment was made toward the charges.
    c. There is no real estate on Schedule A owned and so no equity to use to pay
    creditors.
    3
    d. There is insufficient personal property with value to liquidate to pay credit
    debt totaling over $125,000.00.
    e. The debtor shows no income. The statement of financial affairs also shows no
    income for 2004o or 2003.
    ESTABLISHING NON DISCHARGEABILITY UNDER 523(a)(2)(A)
    8. The Bank needs to show and has shown the five elements of the
    exception for entry of a judgment against the debt, to wit: a) that the debtor made a false
    representation, b) that at the time the debtor knew it was false, c) that the debtor made the
    representation with intent to deceive, d) that the creditor justifiably relied on the representation
    and e) that the creditor sustained a loss.
    a. Representation of intent to repay
    As indicated by the moving papers, it is the Bank’s position supported by substantial case
    law as set forth in the supporting memorandum of law that the presentation of a credit card and
    or the execution of a ready credit check to access funds from a credit account constitutes an
    express and implied promise that the credit card holder or ready credit account maker at some
    future time will pay the obligation incurred in accordance with the terms and conditions of usage
    of the account. The credit is extended in reliance on that promise, establishment of the account
    from other information provided and history of the account as the holder of the card or account
    intends. If it can be established that at the time the debt was incurred, the debtor did not have the
    wherewithal or intent to pay then all the elements of fraud are present. In sum, the record
    before the Court shows that the Bank has demonstrated that there is no triable issue of fact on its
    prima facie case to support that the defendant made representations as to his intent to repay that
    proved to be false.
    b. and c. Whether at the time the debtor knew the representation was false,
    that the debtor made the representation with intent to deceive
    4
    The second element to be established is that at the time the debtor made the implied
    representation of intent to repay, the debtor knew the representation was false As pointed out by
    the Bank in the initial moving papers, obviously debtors will not simply admit to a fraudulent
    intent, such intent must be established by circumstantial evidence. If all the facts are
    inconsistent with the intent to repay, then the use of the credit card or access of the credit
    account is fraudulent. While certain fact patterns tend to recur, the question of intent is an issue
    of fact to be decided with relationship to the facts of the particular case before the Court.
    The facts of the debtor’s use of the account and circumstances of the debtor financially
    must show the debtor knew that any intention to repay was false or known by the debtor not be
    well grounded and that nevertheless the debtor used the card to obtain goods or services which
    the debtor knew were beyond his ability to pay.
    There have been a number of cases in which the Courts have found various criterion
    which may be pertinent in determining the issue of non-dischargeability. As indicated in the
    moving papers, these include
    1. The length of time between the charges made and the filing of the bankruptcy;
    2. Whether or not an attorney has been consulted concerning the filing of bankruptcy
    before the charges were made;
    3. Number of charges made;
    4. The amount of charges;
    5. The financial condition of the debtor at the time the charges were made;
    6. Whether the charges were above the credit limit of the account;
    7. Whether the debtor made multiple charges on the same day;
    8. Whether or not the debtor was employed;
    9. Financial sophistication of the debtor;
    10. Whether there was a sudden change in the debtor’s credit access habits;
    11. Whether the purchases were made for luxuries or necessities.
    Although the presence or absence of one factor alone may not be conclusive of an intent
    to deceive, the presence of many does permit a court to infer thereby that a debtor knew at the
    5
    time of credit access that repayment would be impossible. This is especially when the Court
    considers based on the amount of the charges and financial condition of the debtor he had an
    objective ability to repay at the time the debt was incurred.
    As indicated above, the Bank has established on this record that the debtor knew at the
    time of the credit access repayment would be impossible. These were not nominal small
    charges taken at the last minute which would given an inference of the debtor resorting to the
    card to meet living expenses.
    The petition shows no evidence that the debtor had experienced any type of recent drop
    in income to give rise to a defensive inference against Non Dischargeability .
    Not one payment was made toward the charges and cash advance challenged.
    There appears neither real estate nor personal property as non wage sources of funds
    from which the debtor could have believed he could pay the obligation.
    The debtor clearly and simply utterly lacks any ability to have continued payments on his
    account and in fact he failed to do so for many months before filing on the account at bar and
    other credit accounts.
    d. Justifiable reliance
    Once the Court determines that the debtor has made a representation to the creditor of
    intent to repay purchases and cash advances, and that the representation was false, the creditor
    must show that it actually and justifiably relied on the representations.
    In the case at bar Plaintiff has set forth specific facts surrounding the account the balance
    due. Plaintiff has submitted evidence of the account statement generated in admissible form by
    showing the account statement activity making up the balance. The allegations of the Plaintiff
    6
    and evidence submitted are not conclusory and form the proper basis for the cause of action and
    reliance. The account was not in default and was in good standing from prior payments up to the
    challenged charge.
    e. Damages
    Once the other elements are proven, the issue of damages can be demonstrated by the
    creditor showing the subject advances or purchases in regard to the date, description and amount
    of charges. The account statements have been annexed.
    WHEREFORE, Plaintiff demands judgment against the Defendant pursuant to
    Bankruptcy Code Section 523(a)(2)(C) and 523(a)(2)(A) declaring the debt non-dischargeable
    and for judgment in the sum of $2,858.61 all together with disbursements and such other and
    further relief is just and proper.

    The investigators we hired are widely regarded as some of the best in the business, and have assisted a large number of Fortune 500 companies, as well as law enforcement agencies throughout North America.
    The tracing of an email includes the following:
    Discovery of E-Mail Originator
    Tracing of E-Mail to Its Source
    Discovery of Internet Service Provider etc.

    After discussing it with Rabbanim about this “MOTZI SHEM RAA” and “MAKKEI RAEHI BESESER” and other grave sins that this evil person perpetrated it was decided to publish his name so as to deter future evil doers from repeating this act.

    HIS NAME IS: SHMIEL JACOBY a/k/a/ SAM JACOBOWITZ

    FIRST CLASS FUNDING

  28. WHYTHE PARADISE / WILLIAMSBURG

    Breaking News: Williamsburg catering hall “WYTHE PARADISE” caught with questionable meat.

    Rabbi Shmiel Berger the Rav Hamachshir of several catering halls and many establishments in Williamsburg (including the famous “CONTINENTAL” weddding hall) took off his hashgacha from the catering hall “WYTHE PARADISE” located at 712 Wythe Ave. after confronting the owner who couldn’t provide matching Invoices against the Meats that was used in the establishment, the owner MR. LEZER KESTENBAUM of Williamsburg and his Manager MR. KALMEN WEISS where questioned by the rabbi when the number of poundage of meats that were consumed by the facility didn’t match invoices, when the owner MR. LEZER KESTENBAUM threatened the rabbi with threat’s and mafia tactics if the rabbi will disclose it publicly, the rabbi convened an emergency meeting with the expert rabbanim of the Monsey Shevach scandal and the Rabbanim of the CRC where it was decided that Rabbi Berger must immeadiatly cease his hechsher from the establishment and notify the public, a public letter has been posted all over Williamsburg declaring the rabbanim’s decision, and over 60 schuedled simchas have been cancelled already, MR. LEZER KESTENBAUM who is a well known “G’VAR ALIM” who was also indicted for defrauding the Proctor & Gamble Company with millions of dollars supposedly told the rabbi that he will finish him off like he did with other’s if this becomes public, we congratulate Rabbi Berger for not getting scared off by mafia tactics and acting according to the rules of halacha.

  29. Get Rid of Lezer

    This Kestenbaum guy is well known in the Chassidic circles as the biggest crook and swindler in the last decade, it is a disgrace that such a lowlife Mafia Kapo LOUIS KESTENBAUM is in charge of the O.D.A. organization which receives millions of millions of dollars from Federal, State, City, etc, programs, he is also the de-facto BOSS of the United Jewish Organizations of Williamsburg which is run by his proxy David Niederman.

  30. Kestenbaum / Finkel

    Hey “GET RID OF LEZER” I think that you guy’s should send this guy Kestenbaum to where MOSHA FINKEL is hiding, they we make a great team.

  31. kESTENBAUM zonah

  33. Stop the Terrorist Kestenbaum

    Why are the rabbanim allowing this Kestenbaum to blackmail and terrorize everybody? isn’t there DIN anymore by yidden?

  34. Kestenbaum

    Un-fortunatly this TERRORIST and TUMA guy LEZER KESTENBAUM who has ton’s of money from questionable sources (for example the PROCTOR & GAMBLE SCAM) has a grip on some rabbanim and it’s very hard to get loose from him.

  35. Kestenbaum Trener

    the guy who posted before that LEZER KESTENBAUM doesn’t touch Yiddishe Mama’s you are wrong, there are several cases in Williamsburg and Boro Park where LEZER has wrecked havoc on their marriages because this TUMA who thinks that MONEY buy’s everything….

    1) THE FAMILY OF Y.W.
    2) THE FAMILY OF M.R.
    3) THE FAMILY OF S.F.

    and many others that is known besides the SHIKSES.

  36. Hong Kong Bussinesman

    I was in Hong Kong a year ago and next to my room I had the ZCHU’S to have this Kestenbaum guy from Williamsburg who introduced himself to me as the Rosh Hakahal of Satmar worldwide he sounded very charming, in the middle of the night I heard a commotion outside my room so I looked outside my room and what I saw really shocked me, there were several pritza’s girl’s semi nude standing outside of Kestenbaum’s room and making a commotion several minutes later they walked into Kestenbaum’s room, I am too heartbroken to describe what I heard from that room….Does this guy have a family??? why should he be allowed to play Tzaddik when he does these kinda things? can anybody explain??
