History Repeats: The Fischer Saga, The Story Of Crown Heights

March 3, 2013

The Dovid Fischer saga is the story of Crown Heights. The corrupt community leaders of the Crown Heights Jewish Community Council Inc., along with their Rabbonim and allies, dragged the entire community into their communal wars over three decades ago. Since that time, the in-fighting, hatred, and internecine battles, have grown unceasingly. While Dovid Fischer is no longer at the epicenter, the communal wars still rage on. There are new names and faces, and still some of the old ones too but, the same methods of operation have always been used. This includes a corrupt cabal that has maintained control over the mechanisms of local political power and influence. This cabal has been using fear, intimidation, bullying, deceit, bribery, and a myriad of the same underhanded dirty tricks used by tyrants throughout history.  These methods have been tested and proven to work over time, as there is nothing new under the sun.

As illustrated in George Orwell’s seminal book Animal Farm, corrupt totalitarians of all kinds gain their power through focusing on and creating an outside  enemy or group of enemies.  Maligning and slandering this outside enemy, whether it be Dovid Fischer, Aguch/Krinsky the Shomrim/Hershop brothers, is essential if the cabal is to gain the loyalty of the masses. Fanning the flames of fear and hatred among the people arouses their need and desire for the cabal’s leadership and protection.  Help us and support us, the cabal will claim, because if not, the enemies, who are far worse than we could ever be, will take over.  Classical scapegoat theory comes into to play as the Dovid Fishers and the Hershkops of the world become the ‘Jews’ of Crown Heights- convenient targets upon whom to place all the blame. No money for community programs? The CHJCC is ineffectual, even harmful to the community? Not their fault! If only the Fishers and/or the Hershkops would get out of their way everything would be wonderful.  It’s an old con game however, and the good news is that the con is up. The corrupt ones have overplayed their hand.

Flash Back 1997: Shomrim Ask, “Where Is The Money?”

December 20, 2010

Some Background: 1996, before the brake off, on the advice from a Williamsburg Shomrim Coordinator who pointed out that “Shmira’ is for dead people“, the Shmira organization changed it’s name to Shomrim.

January 1999, as a result of a robbery on a Gemach in Canada(read all about that by clicking here), a vote was held and a member was thrown out of the Shomrim organization. Yanky Prager a thug decided with some others that they will brake off from Shomrim and bring the ‘Shmira’ back to life. This brake-off was an opportunity for Chanina Sperlin to have a so called “patrol” under his wings in-order to funnel government grants his way, without anybody questioning about ‘where the money for the people is?”‘.

This is when the members of the new organization calling itself  ‘Shmira’ became everything that Shomrim did not want to become…The ‘Shmira’ became the henchmen or ‘Sheriffs’ and Mossrim of the Vaad. Currently (following a Mossers tradition), the shmira mesira has joined the ranks of NYPD by joining the COP program giving them more opportunities for Mesira.

This letter was written before the brake-off.


April 30, 1997

Dear Anash,

About two and a half months ago Shomrim gave out a letter stating that the Vaad Hakahal took away money that we raised from the community, for “their own personal use”. Shomrim would like to make it clear that they were not using this money, but were withholding it in the hope of closing Shomrim down. We would also like to take this opportunity to tell you about the incidents leading to the withholding of our money and to update you on the situation between Shomrim and the Vaad Hakahal.

Several months ago there was an argument between a member of Shomrim and a member of the Vaad Hakahal. This was a personal argument that had nothing to do with either organization. The Vaad Hakahal, however, decided that this dispute should involve all of the Shomrim, even though we pointed out that this was only between two people. The argument was soon blown out of proportions.

We were trying to sit down with the Vaad Hakahal to discuss this from the beginning. Only after four weeks did they finally agree to talk with us. Things at this point were very tense between the two organizations. The Vaad Hakahal had already taken away Shomrim’s money and changed the lock on the Crown Heights Community Council, our base of operations.

Shomrim sat with the Vaad Hakahal for nine hours. The only outcome of this meeting was that the Vaad Hakahal wanted us to become the “sheriffs” of Crown Heights. They wanted us to investigate all “terrorist acts”. They also wanted us to go to the police even if there was a problem between two Jews. We informed them that Shomrim are here to protect the Jews of Crown Heights, not to מוסר [Mosser/Inform], on them.

After this meeting the Vaad Hakahal hired a company to shut down our repeater. A repeater allows Shomrim units to speak to each other on their radios. Without it our radios would not transmit and there would be no communication between units during serious Shomrim calls. That could lead to a very dangerous situation.

Another way that the Vaad Hakahal struck at Shomrim was their resolve of the situation that occurred on May 9th. On that day, as you may know, Yoske Prus and another Shomrim unit were arrested during a call. Baruch Bush, a member of the Vaad Hakahal, was called that night at nine o’clock and said in answer to the request for help, “I am too tired for this garbage.” Also, the Vaad Hakahal promised to pay all the lawyers’ fees after they were arrested. When the case ended, however, they said they had already paid the fees and anything that was left over was not going to be paid by them because the case was over. This was said even after the Vaad Hakahal told Yoske Prus lawyer that they would pay everything in full. To make matters even worse, the lawyer stated, “This is Lubavitch? This is fruma yiddin that say they are going to pay and don’t?” The Chillul Hashem that the Vaad Hakahal has caused is unspeakable.

As yet the bill remains unpaid. After years of service to this community, Yoske Prus, a man with a wife and children who ran on calls day and night, was thrown to the dogs by the Vaad Hakahal even though he had nothing to do with the initial argument. Now Yoske Prus is being forced to borrow from Private people to pay the lawyer’s fees. The only thing he has done “wrong” was protect this community. Does he deserve to be treated this way?

The greatest blow from the Vaad Hakahal to date deals with a grant that the government gives every year through the Vaad Hakahal, for the sole purpose of Shomrim’s use. Since 1991 the New York State Government has given a grant to the Shomrim for $17,000 a year, which to date totals $119,000. Not only did Shomrim not receive this money but we did not even know that this grant existed until a friend in Albany asked us if we were spending the money for good purposes. When Shomrim discovered this in 1994 we confronted the Vaad Hakahal and began receiving $10,000 a year. When we inquired about the other $7,000 we were told that it went to the Vaad Hakahal for “filing the papers”. Shomrim had no choice but to let them keep the money because we were told that if we protested we wouldn’t even get the $10,000.

Now, the $17,000 for 1997 was received by the Vaad Hakahal and “diverted” by them. Shomrim did not receive one penny of the grant meant for us to buy equipment (i.e. radios) and pay for the phone line that you call for emergencies. To date there is $89,000 that Shomrim has not received from the Vaad Hakahal. Without this money or the money we raised from the community that is being withheld by the Vaad Hakahal, Shomrim cannot function. We cannot have the Vaad Hakahal fighting us while we are trying to protect the community.

Remember that we are there when you need us. Please be there for us on May 18, 1997 when you vote for the Vaad Hakahal.

Messiah called as first witness

November 15, 2010

Yeshiva row over Messiah goes to court

BY Scott Shifrel

Tuesday, November 3rd 2009, 4:00 AM

What began as a brawl in a Brooklyn yeshiva dorm over a revered rabbi has left six members of a Jewish patrol group facing gang assault charges in a state Supreme Court trial that started Monday.

The fight – over whether the late Rabbi Menachem Schneerson is an emissary of God – also led to broken bones, a $150 million lawsuit and a battle between two rival patrol groups.

“I’m going to call the Messiah as my first witness,” defense lawyer Tedd Blecher quipped after the trial’s first day.

With six defense lawyers objecting at once, a kibitzing crowd and the first witness having trouble telling six bearded defendants apart, the trial veered close to farce.

The defendants, members of the Shomrim watch group, face 15 years – and prosecutors were serious when they told Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Albert Tomei of possible witness tampering just before opening statements. The six defendants were called to a Yeshiva dorm on Eastern Parkway to break up a fight between four members of the Messianic group and others on Dec. 29, 2007.

“It seems that the defendants had one goal and that was not to mediate,” Assistant District Attorney David Weiss told jurors. “It was to beat up a bunch of yeshiva students.”

Defense lawyers said the case was instigated by an attorney affiliated with Shomrim’s rival guard group who also filed the lawsuit.

UPDATE: The Messiah did actually come to court to testify that day, he said that as a result of what he was witnessing in the court room he must leave and not reveal himself . The Messiah went on to say, if so called Jews can testify and prosecute  innocent Jews and a whole community sits in silence and let’s it happen, then they are not deserving of his revelation.

In his closing remarks the Messiah said, not all hope is lost, looking around I do see a packed court room of many good caring individuals, with acts of goodness, kindness and getting ride of the scum/mossrim there is still hope.

We know for a fact that this was the real Messiah, for the Messiah of was wrong and this Messiah was right when he said, “if so called Jews can testify and prosecute  innocent Jews“.

Long Live Shomrim

Andrew Charles Beaten By Members Of Shmira Bringing Crown Heights To The Brink Of Another Race Riot.

July 25, 2010

[redlasso id=”fb23fa03-c062-4377-b4ca-0ba41c880f5b”]

Hello Mr. Hynes,

I am a resident in Crown Heights and its been a number of months since the incident where a hasidic crown heights civilian patrol went and assaulted a young adult named Andrew Charles. Among some of the things I’ve read in the paper was you comparing this group the violent gangs, the Bloods and the Crips, and you vowed to prosecute them for this incident.

I have been walking the streets of my neighborhood for the past few years and I’ve observed some of the things this “group” has done in terms of breaking the law and taking things into their own hands and dispersing their own version of vigilante justice.

After the Charles incident I thought it would finally come to an end, yet the moment the media let up it seems you and your office has done the same, just swept the entire incident under your rug.

Now I see this group not only out on the streets unabashedly, but I see police giving them recognition and support. If i may speak frankly, what the hell is going on here? Members of their own organization of international fugitives and here you are sitting with them and negotiating with them in terms of neighborhood security, when they alone are responsible for bringing Crown Heights to the brink of another race riot.

Where is your office holding with prosecuting them? Where are they holding with dismantling this group, offspring of the Bloods and the Crips?

26 Nissan, 5768/2008: Efraim Okunov The Radio Jammer

April 11, 2010

With total disregard to your safety

Now hes all dressed up with hat and jacket, looking for a Sidduch. Who are you trying to fool, we know who you are?

CROWN HEIGHTS, Brooklyn [CHI] — Late Wednesday night Efraim Okonov (20), a member of the now infamous Shmira, was caught red handed by professional radio technicians as he was driving around in a blue ’96 Crown Victoria and ‘jamming’ Crown Heights Shomrim’s radio frequencies.

Jamming is a term used for when someone transmits an unauthorized transmission over a radio, such as those used by Police, Fire Department and Shomrim, with the intent of interfering with the legitimate transmissions. Radios have the ability to carry just one transmission at a time, thereby locking out any other attempts to broadcast messages.

When a call comes into the Shomrim hotline the dispatcher is dependent on his ability to be able to broadcast the call to the tens of volunteers that are ready to respond. But the dependency on radios does not end there, when executing the call member rely on their ability to intercommunicate amongst themselves, any interference can put an emergency responders life at risk, also endangering those that call for the help.

The persistent jamming began Thursday, April 24th and continued right up to a minute after Shabbos started, and after resting over Shabbos the jamming restarted with even more vigor the moment Shabbos was over.

What was being transmitted varied, it started with telephone tones that went on for hours at a time then switched to scratching sounds, but that wasn’t enough and Okonov switched to broadcasting the radio from stations like z100 and the likes.

The worst was when he played explicit sounds laced with broadcast from a local Christian radio station.

After failing to located and identify the ‘jammer’ on their own, Shomrim enlisted the help of professional radio technicians to scour the area at night, and on the second night they struck gold and got a lock on Okunovs vehicle at Grand Army Plaza.

Once the radio techs identified the source of the last six days torment they woke up a number of the Shomrim coordinators and filled them in with their findings, and asked them how to proceed which they responded with letting him know that he was busted.

After letting Okonov know the jamming came to an immediate halt, and ceased thereafter.

In the haze of sleep Aron Hershkop, one of the coordinators in Shomrim told “in all my 15 years as a volunteer in Shomrim, we have been jammed before, but this guy was good” he said “using different tactics, by driving around and using different types of radios and transmitting in different locations in Brooklyn… he tormented us for the past 5 days”

In Crown Hts., Mayor Presses For Harmony

August 21, 2009
Published: Monday, November 30, 1992

Mayor David N. Dinkins took his campaign for racial harmony to Crown Heights yesterday, urging a mixed group of black youths from the neighborhood and Jewish teen-agers from around the city to look beyond their differences and unite in ways their parents have often not been able to.

Holding a microphone and weaving around the Crown Heights Youth Collective, the Mayor worked a crowd of 100 or so teen-agers, at times like a television talk-show host. He encouraged the teen-agers to talk about race and reflect on a short presentation they had just seen on the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a show that evoked images of the bombings, beatings and bravery of the civil-rights movement in the South.

“What did you get from that — anybody?” Mr. Dinkins asked.



June 7, 2009

Mr. Koch had this idea first with J.B.  Spielman
and that started the riots and as a sign from G-d,
Yankel Rosenbaum hy”d fell close to J.B. Spielmans house.

Published: Saturday, May 23, 1987

Ending years of disagreement over an all-white neighborhood security patrol run by a Hasidic sect, members of the black and Jewish communities in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn have agreed to start a new integrated patrol, they announced yesterday.

The decision by the Crown Heights Jewish Community Council to end its all-white patrol came after many meetings between community groups and city and police officials, and six weeks after a march through the neighborhood by about 400 blacks protesting the patrol.

”For the betterment of all inhabitants of the community, cooperation between both groups is the most desired thing,” said Rabbi J. B. Spielman, chairman of the council, after a 50-minute meeting with Mayor Koch and Police Commissioner Benjamin Ward at City Hall yesterday.

”As the saying goes, from the bitter comes sometimes the sweet,” Rabbi Spielman said. ”I would hope that even though there might be a couple of negative events in the next couple of months, that from this would come open and complete cooperation.” Segregated Patrol Stops Blacks

Many black people in the neighborhood have complained that the segregated patrols stopped blacks walking on the street and asked them for identification. Mayor Koch warned the Hasidim several weeks ago that such tactics were illegal and would not be tolerated, and Commissioner Ward said yesterday that the patrol had not been operating ”for the past couple of weeks.”

The new patrol, which is to operate under the auspices of the 71st Precinct and is to include a telephone hotline at the stationhouse on Empire Boulevard to report incidents, will begin as soon as details have been worked out, the leaders said.

A meeting is scheduled for Wednesday with representatives of the two groups and top police officials to discuss recruitment and training for the patrols.

The Rev. Heron Sam, rector of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, who represented the black community at yesterday’s meeting, said: ”I hope the joint patrol will be successful. We’d like to work for the success of it.” Koch Links Assaults to Blacks

But, Mr. Sam said: ”There’s got to be an end to any kind of partisan patrols that exist in that community if there’s going to be a joint patrol. That is part of the agreement. If that is held, I think we have a chance of success.”

Mr. Koch drew loud protests in a visit to St. Mark’s two weeks ago, when he told a mostly black crowd that most crime in the neighborhood was committed by blacks. ”If you’re a Lubavitcher sect member, Jewish, it’s hardly likely that you’re going to be assaulted by a white in this community,” he said. ”If you’re black, and you’re living in this community, it’s hardly likely that you’re going to be assaulted by a white Lubavitcher.”

But Rabbi Spielman credited the Mayor yesterday with helping to resolve differences between the groups. Commissioner Ward said the two sides were between ”80 percent and 90 percent” in agreement before yesterday’s meeting, and that ”it took the Mayor and an hour to bring everybody together.”

Mr. Koch, speaking to reporters in his office, said, ”It was a very frank meeting,” adding, ”I don’t want to tell you it was kissy-huggy, but there was no animosity.” More Foot Patrol by Officers

City officials said the Lubavitch group had agreed about 10 days ago to join an integrated patrol, but until the meeting yesterday had not said explicitly that it would abandon its all-white patrol. The officials said Mr. Sam had made it clear that ending the all-white patrol would have to be part of any agreement.

Mr. Ward said it was hoped that the new patrol would include members of an integrated neighborhood watch program that has already been operating under the supervision of the 71st Precinct’s community relations officer. He said that group has about 50 active members and would be subsumed in the new patrol.

In addition, Mr. Ward said he had decided to introduce a Community Patrol Officer Program, which would put officers back on foot patrol in the neighborhood, in the precinct as soon as possible. The three-year-old program is operating in 44 of the city’s 75 precincts and is to be expanded citywide within the next 18 months.
