Menachem Mendel Hendel, Central Yeshiva Tomchei Tmimim and 749


Chaired by:
Menachem Mendel Hendel (a.k.a. Mendy or Mendel Hendel).

Mr. Hendel reported giving over $100,000 from his non-for-profit  to Central Yeshiva Tomchei Tmimim.

In 2004 Mr. Hendel reported giving the amount of $8,917 to Central Yeshiva Tomchei Tmimim (770)

In 2005 Mr. Hendel did not file anything to the IRS.

In 2006 Mr. Hendel reported giving the amount of $5,000 to “Friends of Yeshiva Tomchei Temimim” (No public records were found of this organization).

In 2007 Mr. Hendel reported giving the amount of $28,511 to Central Yeshiva Tomchei Tmimim (770).

In 2008 Mr. Hendel reported giving the amount of $38,026 to Central Yeshiva Tomchei Tmimim (770).

In 2009 Mr. Hendel reported giving the amount of $31,449 to Central Yeshiva Tomchei Tmimim (770).

Total amount reported to CYTT in recent years: $106,903 (not including the $5,000 given to Friends of YTT)

It is WIS belief that Mr. Hendel uses funds from his non-for-profit by paying off the Yeshiva to sign affidavits for the purpose of having his boys receive student visas. Once they have these student visas they are then employed by Mr. Hendel.

Mr. Hendel also pays the Yeshiva to let these so called “students” reside in 749 and eat from the Yeshiva dining room, although they do not actually attend the Yeshiva.

And those is the reason that despite  all the acts of violence we (the Crown Heights residents) have witnessed or heard about coming from these “students” and despite the fact that these students have participated in Mesira (informing on other Jews – usually on those who oppose Mr. Hendels agenda), the Yeshiva has taken absolutely no action and as a matter of fact did not even say a word of protest. (More about this in the comments bellow).

The reason is now so obvious, these “students” belong to Menachem Mendel Hendel, Hendel paid for them, they are not under the Yeshivas jurisdiction.

You may ask: But the Yeshiva has said something, just today Crown posted THIS statement from the Yeshiva.

WIS reply: 1) WIS is going to take credit for this, as WIS addressed this question a few days ago (mentioning how WIS will expose why they don’t say anything) all this is is a knee jerk reaction.
2) This is to little to late. After 15 years of acts of violence and Mesira by these so called “students” this is what they have to show, smoke and mirrors?

Ok, back to business.

Hendel pays the deposit for “Student” Shraga Crombie who is currently the editor of which is owned by Hendel.

How Does Mendel Hendel Own 749?

  1. WhoIsShmira? Says:

    After two years of court appearances on October 14th, 2009, Six of our fellow Jews, fathers, husbands, sons, brothers, neighbors, volunteers in Shomrim and life residents of the Crown Heights Community were sent to trial, where they if found guilty would spend 15 plus years in prison.

    The reason these six good people were now facing possible imprisonment is as a result of an altercation they had in the Yeshiva dorm located at 749 Eastern Parkway Brooklyn, NY with a few Messianic boys (aka ‘Tzfatim’) who claimed to have been students in Yeshiva Tomchei Tmimim, which is located in 770 Eastern Parkway Brooklyn NY.

    With the help of the Crown Heights Shmira which is under the leadership of the Crown Heights Jewish Community Council Inc., the ‘Tzfatim’ were encouraged to make police reports and to push the case. Three weeks after the altercation the Six Jews volunteers in Shomrim (‘Shomrim Six’) were arrested and issued D.A.T. (Read the chain of events HERE).

    The trial lasted for six whole weeks.

    Throughout all this and much after the trial the four complaining students, Shneur Rotem, Yaakov Shatz, Gabrial Brownstein, and Elkon Moshe Gurfunkle were residing at 749, the Yeshiva dorm belonging to Central Yeshiva Tomchei Tmimim.

    [Three others claiming to be students in the Yeshiva at the time, Shalom Cohen, Shuki Gur and Yisroel Noach Belinizki would later testify as witnesses on behalf of their Messianic friends].

    Many of these students have been employed by Mendel Hendel at one time or another.

    The Yeshiva administration did not say a word about all this. In no way did they protest this viscous blood libel -Mesira-. In no way did they try to expel these, so called, students from the Yeshiva, and in no way did they try to assist the Shomrim Six.

    When the Yeshiva administration was approached and asked for help on this matter, they straight out refused, claiming that they were scared of being terrorized by the Messianics. This claim turns out to be so far from the ultimate truth.

    The reason why the Yeshiva administration would not stand up and take action against the worse offense a Jew can commit (Mesira), has nothing to do with intimidation, harassment nor terrorism. Maybe just maybe that would be an excuse. But maybe not! Six good hard working, family men were facing 15 years prison, there is no excuse!

    The truth behind their silence is shameful and pitiful to say the least.
    Money and Greed is the ultimate reason why it was ok for Six of our fellow Jews, fathers, husbands, sons, brothers, neighbors, volunteers in Shomrim and life residents of the Crown Heights Community to go to jail.

    Mendel Hendel pays off the Yeshiva to do his biddings and to accommodate his employees.

  2. NYC To Target Illegal Subdivision Says:

    749 came to mind when reading the following article:

    City fire and buildings officials will search for new ways to target landlords who unlawfully subdivide their properties, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Tuesday in the wake of a fire that killed a family living in illegal housing.

    Bloomberg said city inspectors are unable to gain entry to roughly half the properties that are the subjects of complaints, as was the Bronx home where 12-year-old Christian Garcia and his parents, 36-year-old Juan Lopez and 43-year-old Christina Garcia, died early Monday — all of them cut off from fire escapes because of the illegal changes to the three-story building.

    “The real disgrace here is building owners who put profits ahead of people’s lives by illegally converting apartments to make more money and allowing extremely dangerous conditions to persist,” Bloomberg said at a press conference.

    Such makeshift warrens are all over the nation’s biggest city — where most people live in apartments, rents are high, residents are looking for a way to save and landlords are looking for a way to make more money. The Department of Buildings gets about 20,000 calls of illegally converted apartments annually. Inspectors respond at least twice to every complaint and try to gain access to the building, but they are often turned away by tenants, or no one answers the door. If that happens, they must apply for a warrant to get inside. No such warrant was filed at the Bronx building’s location, the department said.

    The mayor said that constitutional protections against illegal search and seizure often present an insurmountable obstacle to city officials seeking to assure the safety of properties, especially because savvy landlords don’t put in extra mailboxes or doorbells where they’re visible to the public.

    Apartment owners often plead ignorant, saying they have little control over tenants because they rarely see what goes on within the units. But renters say owners are just as guilty.

    The burned Bronx building has been in foreclosure, and ownership has passed through various banking institutions — making it more difficult for authorities to determine who was responsible for it.

    The city is still investigating the cause of the fire, which broke out at about 3:30 a.m. in the Tremont section of the Bronx. The three victims lived on the top floor of the property, which had been ordered vacated by authorities in 2009. Inspectors’ attempts to follow up on the order to see if people were still living there were fruitless: They weren’t allowed back into the building, Bloomberg said.

    Most recently, a caller complained on April 14 that the blighted building was illegally converted into single rooms and people were living there. Department of Buildings inspectors hadn’t responded to the call. Local residents told reporters the victims were a family of immigrants from Mexico. It’s unclear how many people were staying in the building.

    The last owner on record for the three-story home, Domingo Cedano, did not answer calls to his business Tuesday. Calls to the foreclosure company also weren’t returned.

    The address has seen a number of complaints in recent years. One in October 2009 said there was no secondary way out from illegal rooms and there was improper electrical wiring throughout the building. That complaint resulted in the fire department ordering third-floor residents to move out. The other complaints logged were about illegal wiring, illegal single-occupancy rooms and the removal of a boiler.

    Over the last 28 months, the Department of Buildings has obtained twice as many warrants to enter apartments as it did in the six years before that, the mayor said. Last year, the city issued about 1,300 orders to vacate apartments that had been illegally subdivided.

    Buildings officials also went undercover between May 2010 and September 2010, posing on the Craigslist classified-ads website as tenants to gain access to 62 apartments around the city, writing violations for 54 of them. Since 2009, the department also has distributed more than 120,000 fliers on the issue, warning New Yorkers in many different languages on the dangers of illegal conversions.

    In January 2005, two firefighters were killed after leaping out a window and another four were hurt when responding to a blaze in a building that had been illegally partitioned. Firefighters have access to building floor plans, but they weren’t expecting a deadly maze of walls. Two tenants and the building owner went on trial in the deaths because of the creation of the illegal warrens, but a jury acquitted the tenants, and a judge later overturned the building manager’s conviction on charges of criminally negligent homicide in the deaths.
