Fruchthandler & Yeshiva Chaim Berlin foregoes Bais Din and hands Huberfeld over to the SEC

This letter, obtained by the Observer, was sent by a lawyer representing the Fruchthandler real estate family and a prominent yeshiva. It seeks the return of more than $600,000 that Platinum Partners withheld when the clients withdrew their investment.
The Torah does not differentiate between a person that steals $1.00 and a person that manages to steal $600,000.00, a thief is a thief!

But that same Torah commands us not to go to secular court. The third Rashi in Parshas Mispatim clearly equates going to secular court with worshiping idols!

The fact that the Satmar Rebbe brothers are in secular court, is not a surprise, because the minhag in Satmar is only to observe minhagim, the Torah is not in the equation.
The surprise is , that Yeshiva Chaim Berlin went to secular court, and that is a big chiddush!

But both the Litvaks and the Chassidim will prohibit anyone going to secular court when one of theirs, sexually abuses or outright rapes innocent children!
Why is it "mesira" when a dangerous rapist attacks girls or boys, but not "mesira" when its dealing with $$$$$$$$$$?

Chayim Berlin and Fruchthandler have a history of not listening to din Torah. About 40 years ago they refused to go to din Torah when Horav Shlomo Carlebach their Mashgiach was thrown out because the Roshei Hayeshivo felt he had to much influence on the bochurim and it made him the Roshei Hayeshivo look shvach. Rav Moshe Weinstein issued a Siruv to the Roshei Hayeshivo and Fruchthandler. Till this day they never paid Rav Shlomo who had a lifetime contract.

Fruchthandler is claiming that his lawyer sent Huberfeld the letter without asking him and it was enough to scare him into paying back Chaim Berlin so no one notified the authorities.

Whither UOJ? said...

First Yona Rechnitz put Yeshiva Ketana of Manhattan under FBI scrutiny by laundering Huberfeld's filthy gelt to them

Will the yeshiva finally kick Rechnitz off their board now that it has emerged he cavorts with prostitutes?

Who's R' Moshe Weinstein??

This post is pure am ha'aratzus! It's not a question of whether Huberfeld is chayav or patur. Everyone admits he's chayav. He's just holding back the money. It's pashut you may go to court in order to retrieve your money!

Going to the SEC is not the same as going to court, going to the SEC is equivalent to going to the DA

OK so switch the word DA for court in my comment. Your comment still doesn't mitigate the stupidity of your post. The point is one doesn't need to go to Bais Din for such a thing.

The Maharsham says an undisputed choiv may be collected in courts

Halachah Lemmaseh said...

The Maharsham writes that an undisputed debt maybe collected in courts. In any case this was just a lawyers letter. They never actually went to court
