From the Archives- Monsey Rabbis Restore Hashgachah to Vendor of Treyf Chickens (Satire)From the Archives-

first posted in 2019

Twelve years ago Moshe Finkel was caught selling treyf chickens as kosher.  It was truly a calamity. The community was thrown into turmoil, massive kashering and a torrent of explanations ranging from loshon horah to short skirts. Some rabbonim called for public fasts. He was kicked out of Monsey.

But now a panel of distinguished rabbis declared his teshuva is complete and he can return to selling chickens.

Some were surprised by the ruling of Rav Nistar Chelm. But his reasoning was solid and backed up by other rabbonim.

Rav Chelm based his ruling on the halachic response to child molesting. In those cases if there was no abuse for three years and the offender expressed regret he is assumed to now be safe to work with children. This is even true if he was not subjected to public humiliation, expulsion from town and forfeiting money.

Kal v’chomer, Rabbi Finkel, a well known talmid chochom, was humiliated, it is over 12 years in which he has not sold an ounce of unkosher or even non-glatt chicken, he has given a lot of tzedakah, and has spent a lot of time learning.

Many in the community were outraged, but they were warned not to say loshon horah. Besides, they were assured that “The rabbis would keep an eye out on him” just as they do with repentant molesters.

  1. Like to know more about thefts from the German Material Claims conference of Holocaust survivors money? This guardians of the Sick Bikur cholim in Brooklyn seem to be thieves too. Given over 10 millions…they claimed less than a million spent on Holocaust survivors. The 140k parsonage was also concealed from the IRS…165k salary insufficient apparently to house himself. Lots of others recipient charities of money from the German Material Claims conference also seems padded…. All 2019 data from public irs990s All I did was follow the money

      • Public IRS 990s.
        Just go to Nonprofit explorer or Guide Star
        See for yourself.
        Happy to provide more details.

      • Call me at 2163551624 please and we can discuss this further. BTW.. secure community network is another gang of thieves. Maybe slightly reformed with new leadership last 3 years…after Pittsburgh. Spent 15 years doing nothing… except stealing. Malcolm hoenlein should be in jail with some of the board. Notice Michael Siegal… chairman of the board of governors of the Jewish Agency at Secure community… makes us insecure
