A 46 year old man drowned to death in the Jordan River Monday. The man was identified as Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Blau, a 46-year-old resident of the Neve Yaakov neighborhood in Jerusalem.
The Behadrei Haredim Hebrew news website reported that the father went to pray at the tombs of the righteous together with his children. Afterwards, the family went for a walk near the Arik Bridge on the Jordan River in the Golan Heights.
Rabbi Blau saw his 16-year-old daughter in distress in the river and jumped into the river in an attempt to save her. He drowned in the attempt.
Two passerby saw the incident and pulled Rabbi Blau out of the river. They attempted to resuscitate him until Magen David Adom paramedics arrived. However, they were forced to declare his death at the scene. His daughter was rescued and physically unharmed.
Rabbi Blau leaves behind 11 children, including a soon to be married bride.
The funeral procession will start at midnight from the Shamgar funeral home to Jerusalem's Har Hamenuhot where Rabbi Blau will be laid to rest.

A Jewish Father responds to his critics
Last week I posted a letter from an anonymous father and now responds to his critics
I appreciate the feedback, both in support of how I resolved my very real dilemma, and against. Some of you were really passionate. I think that’s great!
Let’s brainstorm together how to collectively get out of this quagmire before our children are totally lost at sea.
The goal of my article was not to divide the community, but rather to rally a response that will raise this dilemma to the rabbinic leadership of our communities as the threat to the future of American Orthodox Jewry.
Every Yom Kippur sermon this year, after the appeal is over, of course, should find the rabbis of the shuls standing humbly before the communities, publicly repenting for what they have and have not done this past year to help solve the problem of overpriced Judaism that is slowly bleeding the community dry. If the rabbis won’t lead us out of this problem, then it really is up to us little guys to make it happen on our own. Happy New Year! Now let’s get to work.
So what are the answers everyone is looking for?
New York Times Upset that Harvard Rejected a Women Who Tortured and Murdered Her Own 4 year-old child
Guys, you cannot make this stuff up. This is the new definition of privilege ....
A black woman who kills her child is praised and placed on a pedestal as somebody who is worthy. Being a "published scholar" washes away the brutal torture and beating death of a helpless 4 year old little boy according to NY Times.
What an awful example of humanity. And what an awful, corrupt organization that praises her. And Jones still won't reveal what she did with his body. This women hasn't even demonstrated credible remorse!
I wonder why the Times doesn't hire her as a daycare worker for its employees.
Read below and vomit!
Five New Yorkers in wheelchairs are behind nearly 400 lawsuits brought against small businesses for lacking handicap access.
Such legal claims have been criticized as part of a “cottage industry” of “serial plaintiffs” who target mom-and-pop establishments for quick cash settlements. But others see the suits as helping enforce the American with Disabilities Act.
Wheelchair ramps and bathroom doors are not the only battleground. Two blind New Yorkers have taken the fight online, filing a combined 23 suits against business Web sites that didn’t have screen-reading software for the visually impaired. And a woman cited seven businesses for not allowing her service dog inside.
Zoltan Hirsch, 37, a double amputee from Brooklyn, is hell on wheels for those who fail to make their establishments wheelchair accessible. Since 2010, he has filed suit against 195 businesses ranging from a Soho eyeglass shop to Brooklyn non-kosher bodegas to a Hell’s Non-Kosher Kitchen restaurant.

|Ezra after swallowing some schmaltz herring|
We had Jews like that in 1941 when Nazis forced Jews to persecute and torture their fellow brothers and sisters in ghettos and concentration camps...these Jews had a name "Capos" .....
I remember growing up and actually meeting these capos. They were dressed like other Jews with some of them actually dressing chassidish.
Some capos tried their best to preserve the lives of their brethren and sacrificing their very own lives
.... others, became opportunists that morphed into wild animals.
I must have met the animals, because I vividly remember my neighbors whispering about these subhumans who managed to survive and now assimilated in our neighborhoods masquerading as frum benevolent Jews. In Israel some were actually tried in court and others were murdered by their victims.
One in particular, was the Rosh Hakhal of a famous shul in Boro-Park. He was a "Baal Chesed" and donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to our holy institutions. It could very well be that he regretted his past, but my Mother a"h who never spoke evil about anyone told me that he was a sadistic evil monster.
Just about a year ago, President Obama made a deal with Iran that according to the people in the know, would in effect hand nuclear weapons weapons to Iran, known as the largest terrorist exporter in the entire world.
Let's not forget that Iran constantly vows to wipe Israel off the map.
It was a very bad deal.....
Jerry Nadler, a congressman whose constituents comprise of Holocaust survivors was in favor of this disastrous deal and as an aside, is also in favor of JStreet, an organization that fights to weaken Israel and supports the vicious BDS movement .
Right before Election Day, he hired Ezra Friedlander to write an op-Ed in the Yeshivahworld blog that urged his fellow Jews to disregard Nadler's disgusting Iran “Genocide Bill” vote, and vote for Nadler!
His money is apparently running out, so this admitted uneducated schemers, came up with a money making scam that may very well be illegal...
He has made a business of arranging luncheons on Capital Hill for organizations who want the use of the prestige of the capitol, charging them enormous fees.
So how does he do it? By commercializing the Congressional Gold Medal.
And guess who he wants to honor ..?????????
A boro-park guy with a shtreimal wants to honor Sadat?
Yes, because this will bring Arab Money, soaked with Jewish blood!
Call your local congressman and voice your opposition to this money scam .....

Two huge booksellers, Amazon and Walmart, have already cut the price of Hillary Rodham Clinton's 2016 tell-all by 40 percent -- and it isn't even available yet.
Set to be released Tuesday, both have priced "What Happened?" at $17.99.
Publisher Simon and Schuster set a price of $30.
Much of what's in her book has already been reported on, thanks to leaked copies of the Democratic presidential candidate's latest work.
The price cut, however, has likely helped to boost sales. It is No. 1 on Amazon.
