Bleich Resigns from Conference of European Rabbis after Investigation

Chaim Shaulson‘s Hebrew language blog, In the World of Haredim (בעולמם של חרידים) posted (6/1/19)

Rabbi [Yaakov] Bleich [Chief Rabbi of the Ukraine] resigned from the Conference of European Rabbis after Dayan [Menachem] Gelley [Av Beth Din of the London Beth Din of the United Synagogue] went to  America and examined the suspicions against him[Bleich].

This report is consistent with the facts I know. The recent resignation follows his earlier removal from the Conference’s website which I reported on March 31, 2019. Before his removal he held a number of important positions at the CER including membership on their Executive Council and their Presidium.

I read this resignation as a face-saving move by Bleich to avoid public expulsion. Though, of course, I expect Bleich to offer a different explanation. In my opinion, the public interest would have been better served if there had been a public statement of his removal and the reasons.

  1. i have no idea of the facts around this story, what i do know is that using shoulsoons rag of a blog to prove anything means that either you know nothing about shoulson, or that u knowingly use useless sources by a know liar and extorter to prove points u want to make. btw is ” kola delo pasik ” nothing to do with psukim

  2. KOL HAKAVOD, BLEICH IS A BLIGHT ON THE jEWISH PEOPLE. DENIGRATING jEWS, AND IN PARTICULAR UKRAINE.
