Mendel Hendel: Hachnosas Orchim For Thee Hachnosa (הַכנָסָה) Income For Me


From the Inbox

The scam that is Mendel Hendels Eshel Hachnosas Orchim:

If your a Crown Heights resident chances are that by now you received a frantic call from a Meshichist Bocher whose being employed by Menachem Mendel Hendel, asking you if you can take in as guest a ‘family’ for the month of Tishrei.

One Crown Heights resident received such a phone call and shared that conversation  with me.

The following conversation is based on what was related to me. It’s not word for word…I’m paraphrasing.

Eshel: Hello Mr. Crown Heights resident, I’m calling from Eshel Hachnosas Orchim and I’m hoping you can be so kind and assist us.

CH Resident: Hello, how may I assist you?

Eshel: As you know we are involved in making sure the guest that come for Tishrei are housed and feed. However, there are whole families which have arrived and we don’t have where to lodge them. This is where you come in, would you be so kind as to host a family for Tishrei?

CH Resident: Don’t you have a big building on Kingston Ave. designed for this purpose, why not host them there?

Eshel: Yes we do, however the building is so full to capacity we couldn’t even insert a needle there.

CH Resident: And those who are staying at the Eshel Hachnosas Orchim building are they there for free or are they paying?

Eshel: Um um, I think they are paying.

CH Resident: Isn’t this a Chutzpa?

You are calling me to ask as to wheather we can take in an entire family for free for an entire month (who by the way had the funds to come here in the first place), but in your own faculty you are charging guest to stay?

Eshel: Um um, I don’t know I I I…

CH Resident: I’ll tell you what. I have four available rooms in my home, go back to your boss and tell him that I’m ready to host “his guest” if he pays me what he charges “his guest” that are lodging at his hotel.

Eshel: Fine. If you won’t host any guest can you at least give a small donation?

CH Resident: I give plenty to the guest. I support with food and money those who come here to learn and go to the Ohel. I don’t support those who come here to make business selling decorations, Lulavim  and Estrogim.

Eshel: Buy (hangs up).

The point is self understood.

    PSA: Attention Attention business owners:

    Be on extra alert, being in the month of Tisrei there is an influx of Meshichistim roaming the Crown Heights neighborhood.

    Be very aware of the fact that that Meshichistim have a reputation for stealing and doing so with an entitlement.

    They will sit in your restaurant, eat good and simply walk out when done without paying.

    • Shneur Says:

      Kingston pizza has a new policy for the month of Tishrei.

      You must pay before you get served.

      I know this policy is only for Tishrei because I approached the owner and told him that Crown Heights residents are not happy with this and to this the owner replied, I know but it’s only for this month.

    Hendel is a millionaire, he can afford to pay for his own guest.

    Crown Heights residents should [in general] support organizations that do for the Jews living in Crown Heights and not for those who spend over $1500 to come here to waist time and our hard earned money.

    The only reason[s] I do support what the Vaad is doing is because…
    1) If they are coming in any case (although I would rather they not)* then might as well have a good normal program for them. Besides the fact that those that are part of the Vaad program are not the same as those who align themselves with Mendel Hendel.

    As Chleaks wrote here: The Difference Between a Chabad Yeshiva Bocher and a Meshichist

    2) Any cause that pisses Mendel Hendel and the corrupt cabal of Crown Heights off, is a cause I support.

    * If someone want to come be by the Rebbe zt”l (the Ohel) then he or she can come for a few days (Gimmul Tammuz for example), there is no need to come for a full month.

    It is a sin to give even a penny to any Meshichist Mossrim causes or “Charities”.

    If anybody shows up by your door with those yellow crosses, you must deny him any money or any sort of support and you most tell him why you are doing so.

    Remember not every Meshichist is a Mosser, but every Mosser is a Meshichist!!!

  3. Show Me The Money Says:

    Mendel Hendel is asking us to have Hachnosas Orchim (for free) all the while he has Hachnosa Min (from the) Orchim.

    ב”ה ימות המשיח

    יחי המלך!

    דף עזר למטלפן.

    חודש תשרי בפתח ואיתו כל האורחים, האורחים של הרבי שליט”א מלך המשיח. מחלקתנו עוסקת (בעיקר) במתן פיתרון לאורחים הנשואים שבמסירות נפש הגיעו הנה עם נשותיהם לחודש החגים.

    עבודתנו מסתכמת בעיקר בטלפונים לחיפוש אנשים טובי לב שיסכימו לארח בסבר פנים יפות את אורחי המלך המשיח.

    מטבע הדברים עבודה זו הינה קצת קשה בהתחשב בתנאי העבודה ובצורה שזה נעשה כשהזמן היחיד שיש לנו לשכנע מישהו הינו בטלפון של שתי דקות ומעלה.

    לצורך כך להלן מספר נקודות שאמורות לעזור לך בעבודת הקודש.

    כמו שהוזכר מקודם המגע שלנו (הטלפנים) עם הבנאדם הוא מאוד קצר לכן הטלפון צריך להיות הכי מקצועי שאפשר ולכן:

    1. אין מצב שהבנאדם מנתק בלי לעזור. עזרה גם יכולה להיות על ידי כך ששואלים אותו אם הוא מכיר מישהו או שאולי הוא יכול להתקשר למישהו…

    2. המצב של הזוגות שנמצאים כרגע במשרד הוא על המצפון שלו (כמה שאפשר) המטרה צריכה להיות לנסות להמחיש כמה שיותר ולתת כמה שיותר פרטים על המצב שיש לנו באופן אוטומטי (בדרך כלל) הבנאדם יותר רוצה לעזור.

    3. משפטים חזקים כמו: אברהם אבינו עזב את אלוקים באמצע בשביל הכנסת אורחים. או אתה השליח של הרבי לארח אותו אתה מארח אותו במקום הרבי….. כל אחד כיד ה’ הטובה עליו.

    4. כמובן שההתלהבות שלנו בטלפון היא הכי חשובה… כמה שנהיה משוכנעים ככה יגדל הסיכוי לשכנע את מי שעומד מולנו.

    5. חוץ מזה שזה האורחים של הרבי אין לנו מה למכור זאת אומרת שיש לנו את הכל אז חזקו ואמצו הטלפנים גיבורי התהילה לתשרי תשע”ב. ההתגלות בפתח!. . . בזכותכם!

    יחי אדוננו מורנו ורבינו מלך המשיח לעולם ועד!

  6. FOR THE RECORD: Says:

    Eshel currently has two kitchens running.

    One for the Hotel and one for the so called guest.

    The hotel kitchen and the guest kitchen are two different universes.

    The hotel kitchen has real food while the guest kitchen has food fit for chickens (as 1bigchoent pointed out here:

    Hendel is trying to fool the public by showing photos of the hotel kitchen and claiming that its for the guest.
