Menuval Kovod Fresser, Ukraine’s Yaakov Bleich, Claims He Quit Prestigious Organizations Because He Is Slowing Down.

In response to Haaretz reporter, Sam Sokol‘s questions about his no longer being on the executive committees of the Conference of European Rabbis and the World Jewish Congress, self proclaimed Chief Rabbi of Ukraine, Yaakov Bleich said,

“Anyone in public life, over five to six years, you’re going to make changes, especially at my age, where I am less active.”

This from a guy who has been schnorring up a storm for Jews in Ukraine on his own since major Jewish groups will no longer pass through $ to him.

Ukraine’s Yaakov Bleich Resigns from Conference of European Rabbis after Investigation (from the 2019 Archives)

Bleich is on the cover of this week’s Ami Magazine. They have a penchant for publicizing lowlifes like Weberman and the child molesting and kidnapping cult, Lev Tahor. Bleich is timely as a rabbi in the Ukraine. But he is not the only rabbi there and he does have the problem of multiple allegations of sexual assault against boys, girls and women as revealed here in 2019. Since this post in 2019, Bleich lost all his positions with the World Jewish Congress where he used to be a VP. Yerachmiel Lopin

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.

Alexandr Dubinsky

Alexandr Dubinsky (Александр Дубинский) is a blogger/muckraker in Kiev with 119,000 followers on FaceBook and a popular website focused on corruption in Ukraine. Chief Rabbi of the Ukraine, Rabbi Yaakov Dov Bleich fell into the glare of some unwanted publicity because of his connection to one of Dubinsky’s targets.

On Monday (5/6/19) Dubinsky posted an attack on oligarch and politician Boris Lozhkin (Борис Ложкин). He wrote:

As you know, last year the former head of the presidential administration [of defeated incumbent, Poroshenko], Boris Lozhkin , decided to gain a foothold among Orthodox Jews, and became chief of the Jewish Confederation of Ukraine https://jcu.org.ua/management where he got to the center of an international sex scandal.

The head rabbi of Ukraine Yaakov Dov Bleich, who turned out to be a sexual molester, became the curator and spiritual mentor of Lozhkin in the EKU.

In connection with these suspicions, the mention of Bleich was removed from the website of the Conference of European Rabbis, where he was a member of the presidium, the executive and the permanent committees.

Now they are joking in the synagogue – having decided to become a Jew, Lozhkin immediately fell into … the hands of a pedophile. (translated from the original Russian)
