Yossi Green and Shlomo Simcha Event in Lakewood Cancelled By Rabbonim
On Thursday, November 9, composer Yossi Green and singer Shlomo Simcha Sufrin were scheduled to be at Gourmet Glatt in Lakewood, NJ, for a “Leil Shishi Experience,” an event in honor of the release of Yossi’s and Shlomo Simcha’s new album, “Leil Shishi.”
That event was been cancelled.
The event was to feature a complimentary hot and cold buffet, as well as wine tastings by The Vineyard. These have all been called off.
The event was canceled after pressure from rabbinic sources.
Some explain that there were concerns from local yeshivos regarding bochurim attending the event.
“The Leil Shishi event in Lakewood has been called off,” Yossi Green said in a humble and respectful message that was echoed by Shlomo Simcha. “The rabbonim didn’t see it as a proper idea. For us, it’s an opportunity to be mekayeim מצוה לשמוע דברי חכמים! For me, that always comes first. We always hope to do events that will be מקדש שם שמים, but if it doesn’t meet approval of דעת תורה, then it’s out.”
