Category Archives: Shmuel Borger
Shmuel (Sammy) Borger, former choir leader of Amudai Shaish, and huckster extraordinaire is now hawking tznius (modesty) with robo-calls. Many authorities think he is the wrong man for this job. If you want to be either upset or entertained call … Continue reading
Shmuel Borger has produced a video, Still Your Child, superimposed on Shloime Daskal’s singing. It has provoked negative reactions by DovBear, Frum Satire, Hashkafah, and Failed Messiah. By my count, over 500 comments were submitted on these different blogs and on YouTube.
This entire video is about a power struggle. The father has a friendly relationship with his son when he poses no threat to him. When the son is young and totally reliant on his father, he is an exact copy and is accepted. He is accepted again when he is helpless because of cancer, r”l (have mercy on us), and does whatever his father wants. The father exerts his control by constant, frankly disturbing, touching. He slides his hands slowly over his son’s entire face when he is a child and the camera zooms in on them holding hands. The boy begs for the father’s touch on his deathbed and he gets a lot of it.

Shmuel Borger is keeping up his drumbeat of publicity for TEARS FOR MOSHIACH. Residents of Borough Park were hit with robocalls to get them out to the show and to clarify that his ad was wrong and men are also … Continue reading
Below is the full text of the tape of Borger’s infomercial which I wrote about in my post, Take the Borger Challenge. Notable details include: Borger’s exploitation of his son’s death, his improbable attempt to claim there was no suicide, … Continue reading
Below is the full text of the most recent Shmuel Borger advertisement for his video production TEARS FOR MOSHIACH. Borger is alleged to be a pedophile who tries to divert attention by lashon horah drashos. Sammy Borger has been promoting … Continue reading
Shmuel Borger has produced an infomercial tape for his video production, Tears for Moshiach, which is supposed to bring moshiach.
I have spoken to people who tried to listen to the entire tape but couldn’t make it to the end. Most of them said, “it made me gag.” After two failed attempts I forced myself to listen right through to the end. It is an astounding piece of audio work. It doesn’t teach anything of value about lashon horah, bringing the geulah, or even the true facts about Motty’s death. But it sure shows us the real Shmuel Borger.
He will amaze you with his fine speaking voice and his eerie level of emotionless control. He will display a full range of emotion but you will detect the faking. He will move from stories and histrionics into the closing sales pitch for his upcoming video and invite you become a financial sponsor. Klal yisroel could have benefited immensely from Sammy Borger’s talents if he had devoted himself to selling gadgets on television and donating the proceeds to worthy causes.
Take the Borger challenge. See if you can get yourself to listen to his tape right to the end. You can play it on YeshivaWorldNews’or you can download it. Continue reading
Yudel Shain, who usually blogs about kosher food matters, thinks Tears for Moshiach by Shmuel (Sammy) Borger is trayf and guilty of mashichism. He has posted a warning about Borger’s upcoming video production.
The word on the street in Boro Park is that Shmuel (Sammy) Borger is soliciting endorsements (haskamahs) for his new video which he promises will help bring Moshiach. In one version of this story he approached Rabbi Matisyahu Salomon, Mashgiach … Continue reading
An acquaintance staying at the same hotel tells me the wall is over four and a half feet high.” A friend of Motty tells me that Motty’s adult height was less than six feet. That means that the wall almost came up to Motty’s armpits. The idea of him falling over the wall by accident just does not calculate.
I am very confident when I assert that Motty Borger committed suicide. The more interesting question is what else is Shmuel Borger covering up and who are the others in on his cover-up. Continue reading
I am preparing a story about the Amudai Shaish Boys Choir and its director, Shmuel Borger. I am looking for details about its founding, operation, and closing. The kinds of information I am seeking include how singers were recruited and … Continue reading
An aonymous survivor of sex abuse wrote me: There are so many things that are disturbing both about the Shmuel Borger audio and about the Yeshivah World News that posted it, that it is difficult to know quite how to … Continue reading
The criminal prosecution of Boruch Lebovits inched forward this week. Jury selection pre-trial motions started on Thursday (1/21/10) according to a reliable source. Lebovits was arrested and charged in April on hundreds of counts of sexual misconduct with children including felony … Continue reading
One my readers asked me: Is there anything new regarding the events that culminated in the death of Motty Borger? The story has seemingly disappeared. If in fact there are unseemly aspects to the reported story, this story needs to … Continue reading
This posting addresses an article which will appear in the Jewish Press but already has appeared, with permission on several websites including Harry Maryles Emes Ve-Emunah, where I had an exchange with Rabbi Twerski in the comments section. The context … Continue reading
(This replaces a previous version of this story) The blogger Shitalpin alleges that Shmuel Borger, Motty’s father, was a molestor of his own children. I have also been informed of this allegation from another source. DovBear says he is aware … Continue reading
Unfortunately, molesting begets molesting. Those who are molested sometimes become molesters themselves. I wrote about this recently in a biographical post. It is also an issue that figures in my post about Motty and Shmuel Borger. I can only wonder … Continue reading

Most postings in FrumFollies are triggered by something I read. I don’t have time to convert most of these web sightings into articles. So I will start sharing them through weekly roundups.
