The Vaad Hakohol of Crown Heights has broken its silence regarding the arrest of alleged child molester Moshe Keller. In their letter, which bears the names of all three elected Vaad members, they urge people to remember that he is innocent until proven guilty, and that discussion on the Internet adds nothing positive.

WIS agrees with [parts of] the message but not with the hypercritical messengers and this is why….
Date: Sunday, June 06, 2010
Location: Outside Lubavitcer Yeshiva Crown (on Albany side)
Event: Meet the Candidates form
At the conclusion of the ‘Meet the candidates’ form, Shomrim Coordinators Aron and Gadi Hershkop (including others from the Shomrim Six trial) confronted the then chairman of the Crown Heights Jewish Community Council Inc. a.k.a Vaad Hakohol Fishel Brownstein (who is currently treasurer of CHJCC) and asked him how it was that the CHJCC was silent all the while Six innocent Jews sat on trial, facing 15 plus years in prison, if convicted as a result of a vicious Mesira.
To this Fishel Brownstein replied, “But you guys did hit the Bochorim”.
Brownstein statement comes despite the facts that….
1) there was a six week trial regarding this matter,
3) a jury of 12 found the defendants NOT GUILTY!.
Yet Mr. Brownsteins signature is signed on a two page letter which is asking you and me to presume the innocent of an [accused] child molester.
The Crown Heights Shmira which is under the leadership of the Crown Heights Jewish Community Council Inc., orchestrated together with their attorneys Paul [Levi] Huebner and Elie Poltorak the entire Shomrim Six Mesira, yet the CHJCC took no action (wrote no letters) to stop them. Yet now all of a sudden they find their voice and sign a two page letter which is asking you and me to presume the innocent of an [accused] child molester.
Notice how all of a sudden they care for the accused family.
On December 12, 2010 Chairman of the Crown Heights Jewish Community Council Inc., Zaki Tamir and Eli Cohen, Executive director of the CHJCC armed only with mere speculation, chatter and rumors, not backed up by any actual evidence, got on the public airways (for 23 minutes) and preceded with a baseless character assassination against our volunteer Shomrim patrol. The Shomrim group was falsely accused by Tamir and Cohen for causing tension with NYPD, running “hate-blogs” and every other problem in the Crown Heights community.
Before spewing their propaganda to the public, Mr. Tamir and Cohen made no efforts to reach out to the Shomrim coordinators for their side of the story (if at all they had a side).
Yet here Zaki Tamir signs a two page letter which in it states…
“Innocent until proven guilty” is one of the most fundamental tenets of Jewish law (Bava Kama 46b — as well as many places)… But, we are told to suspend judgment until a full investigation and fair process is conducted, because without a fair process we do not know what really happened. Before the conclusion of a fair process, we can be relying on rumors, half-memories, miscommunications, and (sometimes) even intentional deceit.
…a good deal of speculation and chatter has begun to circulate about members of the community that are based on speculation that may not be backed up by actual evidence. We remind everyone that it is against the Torah to malign anyone without evidence…
…We add nothing positive by adding fuel to the fire and scream and shout and post all over the internet about this…Practically speaking, we ask our fellow community members:
1. Please suspend judgment until a verdict has been reached.
2. Please do not further spread rumors and stories about any accusation.
3. Please treat the family with the decency and respect they deserve.
So just when are we supposed to presume innocence and when not?
Now that we established the hypocrisy of the CHJCC letter, we will move on to analyze why they came out with the letter in the first place.
It has already been established that the Crown Heights Jewish Community Council Inc., and anybody associated with them are corrupt.
That being said, anything and everything that comes out of this organization has to have a hidden agenda or a back story to it. So when the CHJCC comes out with a TWO PAGE LETTER* [essentially protecting a child molester by] asking me and you to “suspend judgment” and to “presume innocence” etc… I think to myself…ummm, what is going on here, what do the people at the CHJCC have to do with this issue (what business do they have here?)
*they could have written this letter in one paragraph.
Here are some of my thoughts.
1) The people at CHJCC/Vaad Hakohol are simply trying to stay relevant. By coming out with a common sense, no brainier letter (like THIS one), they put themselves in a win win position. Which by the way, WIS just took away from them.
Here’s an idea for them to stay relevant. You know the millions they get from tax payers dollars to assist needy people and families, you know the over 10 million they received since 2009? Well, they can start doing just that, us the darn money for its actual purpose (instead of lining their private pockets).
2) To cover their bases. With all that’s being exposed right here on whoisshmira.com/chleaks.com they surly have a lot of bases to cover.
3) Perhaps the accused is connected to the chain of corruption and fraud, otherwise why come out in his defense and doing so with a TWO PAGE LETTER.
3) A WIS Prediction: Reading between the lines WIS thinks that they are preparing for someone far more important to them to be accused, it’s just a matter of time. This letter may be a preemptive strike/defense.
