UPDATE: Regarding Scuffle Breaks Out in 770 over “Yechidus”


UPDATE Regarding: Scuffle Breaks Out in 770 over “Yechidus”

The bochur who was punched called the Police, who entered 770 to find the thug, but he was nowhere to be found. All the while, the Tzfatim were yelling at the vicitm, calling him a “Moser” and threatening him.

It turns out that the Meshichistim are not the only ones making threats to the victim of the Meshichist assault.

2/18/12 UPDATE added – Yeshiva Hanhala issues cowardly letter addressing the violence (click full story for more).

The day after the vicious assault, the Rosh Yeshiva of  Central Lubavitcher Yeshiva in 770, Rabbi Zalman Labkovsky, called in the young man who was viciously assaulted with a punch in the face and reprimanded him for calling the police and treating to expel him from the Yeshiva (by canceling his student visa). Those the young man has become a victim twice.

As to the violent Meshichistim thugs? Well, they continue to dance of-course.


On Friday, February 17, 2012 the Yeshiva administration issued a cowardly, disgusting and quite frankly propaganda filled letter, which panders to the violent Meshichist.

The following cowardly sign, with a message from Hanhalah begging “both sides” (aggressors and victims) to refrain from violence, appeared  in 770 and 1414.

By asking “both sides” to refrain from violence the Yeshiva administration is implying that the violence is a two way street. Besides being the opposite of the truth, this propaganda only helps the Meshichist cause.

When you compromise with a terrorist, only the terrorist wins.

The yeshiva administration should be ashamed of themselves and in fact should offer those who have been assaulted and bullied by Meshichist thugs an apology for the above insulting propaganda letter.

  1. 770 bochur, from upstairs Says:

    it was the bochur who assisted the police who labkowsky threatened to kick out. this was after he recieved a death threat from the tafati Chaim Abrabaya, and the victim wanted to go to the police if the hanhole will not act apropriately.

    Why this case is different then Shomrim Six

    Just asking

  3. A solution Says:

    I am pretty sure this article will yet again get a knee jerk emotive response as does every similar article.

    How about a different approach this time ?

    We are an intelligent community. Let us put our heads together and discuss possible solutions. Instead of raw emotions.

    As I see it, the hanhalah are the only people who can make substantial changes. And seemingly, they cant or wont.

    The next logical step would be to bring them a higher authority, namely the Beis Din.

    That wont work either,

    The hanhala and the Beis Din are in bed with Hendel. He provide them backing, politically and financially.

    The next step would be the Community Council.
    Pretty much the same alliance there. Besides these people are up for elections every few years, why should they want to step into it.

    The solution lies with lay leaders, activists and concerned individuals who will meet,organize and rally for solutions.

    They have to be prepared to confront and challenge the hanhala and the Beis Din. As well as a small but very vocal group of diehards.

    They have to be prepared to be labeled and maligned.

    A formidable task indeed.

    The upside is, the vast majority, albeit a silent one would applaud them and back them when it came down to it.

    Ask yourself, are we whiners who have accepted this situation as our reality or are we honorable chasidim who will do whatever it takes ?

    As it stands now, everything is stacked against normalcy.

    It is a three ring circus, and an unpleasant one at that.

    The hanhala wont change one iota, they will claim the Rabbonim instructed them otherwise.

    The gabboim will claim the same thing.

    Each group will encourage and accommodate the other.The way things are structured now, it will never end.

    Since Gimmel Tammuz, the pendulum has swung in only one direction. There was a power grab at that time and the rest of us didn’t pay enough attention. Now they have unfettered reign.

    It might possibly take something very dramatic or even extreme, to change things.

    As difficult and painful as it may be, it might take the shutting down of Seven Seventy as we know it, for an unspecified amount of time.

    Purify the air.

    The gabboim, rabbonim, hanhala and kvutza can carry on their shenannigans elsewhere, in some some rented space.

    And then to come up with solutions and make the necessary changes to reopen 770. The details would need to be worked out.

    Otherwise, with each passing year, more shuls will open in Crown Heights and more children will grow up with almost never seeing the inside of the Rebbes Shul. Totally disenfranchised and cut off from Beis Chayeinu.

    The increasing number of shuls in Crown Heights is the loudest vote out there. People are voting with their feet. Taking them elsewhere.

  4. WhoIsShmira? Says:

    I want to take this opportunity to add.

    This whole Meshichist violence is only a distraction.

    A distraction brought to us by Menachem Mendel Hendel.

    There is a reason why Hendel wants us distracted with this and WIS knows why.

  5. 70 Year Old Ultra-Orthodox Woman Latest Victim of Haredi Vigilantes « Jacob's Bones Says:

    […] In Israel, the problem of violence has become sufficiently bad that some members of the Israeli Haredim have actually approached the secular Israeli police to ask for help against the violence. But there are others in the community that are very much against secular police involvement. For example, a yeshiva student who called the police after having been punched in the face during one of the 770 brawls was reputedly reprimanded by the rosh yeshiva for having called the police and threatened with expulsion.
