Loser of the Day: Eli Cohen

January 30, 2020

Observe Mr. Eli Cohen’s body language while Rabbi Mendy Hershkop, a coordinator of Crown Heights Shomrim speaks.

“Body language is a type of a nonverbal communication in which physical behaviors, as opposed to words, are used to express or convey the information. Such behavior includes facial expressions, body posture, gestures, eye movement, touch and the use of space.”

Wow!!! Speaks volume.

Eli Cohen is currently the executive director of the Crown Heights Jewish community council Inc. (CHJCC).

UPDATED: A reader pointed this out. Take notice how Eli Cohen scares the living daylights out of Batia Brandel (Director of CHJCC Crime Victims Program). Eli Cohen terrifies her, she get so nervous and tense as a result of Eli Cohen’s demands. This a employee’s abuse and should be investigated. Shame that Eli Cohen stole this beautiful event from her. Sick!

OpEd: Upset At Being Duped By A Fake CHJCC Melava Malka

January 30, 2020


by Menachem Shabtai

This past Motzei Shabbos, a Melava Malka was held for the Crown Heights community. It was a glamorous event with beautiful speeches by Rabbi Simon Jacobson and Rabbi Efune.

Sadly for me though, it was a major letdown, as that was not what the Melava Malka was publicized as, and definitely not why I attended.


Mock Elections Coming Back To Play In Crown Heights

February 21, 2019

Regarding: Crown Heights Jewish Community Council to Hold Elections

The Crown Heights Community Council Inc. is so irreverent to our day to day lives that it took me a week to make time (wasted time) to address this issue.

Besides, after reading and hearing what the people have to say about this, there isn’t much to add.

I will however say a few things.


Ask The Sperlin Family and Crown Heights Jewish Community Council Inc.

February 11, 2019

By J. David Goodman


“Where the hell is HUD and money?”

Stanley Brezenoff, a career public servant in New York City since the 1970s, was deeply frustrated.

On Jan. 31, Mayor Bill de Blasio and Ben Carson, the secretary of the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development, struck a deal that subjected the New York City Housing Authority to federal oversight without any commitment of new federal funding.

“I think that it is not a good agreement for Nycha and for the city,” Mr. Brezenoff, the outgoing Nycha chairman, said in an interview.

Mr. Brezenoff, an ally of Mr. de Blasio who was hailed in April by the mayor as “one of the great public servants in the last generation,” said he believed the deal was unfair.



August 19, 2018

Time and time again we see see articles with the following statement, “Local leaders met with so and so to discuss so and so” etc… Who are these leaders? What exactly are they leading? Where exactly are they leading whomever they pretend to be leading? What have they actually done to demonstrate leadership?

Why are self appointed “leaders”, who lead nothing, making decisions that effect our neighborhood?

Welcome Back CHLEAKS…Project Landlord Shaming

August 21, 2016

We’re back!!!!

The only and only real crises the Jews of Crown Heights suffer from is not the manufactured “racial tension”, which is another scam that brings money to the Corrupt of Crown Heights, our real and only crises is the HOUSING CRISES. Unfortunately this crises (like every other bad thing) was created by so called fellow Jews. It is time to expose this to the public.

How is it that all those who served in the Crown Heights Jewish Community Council ended up owning buildings by the time they left office? Who occupies these buildings today? (Hint, not fellow Jews).

It is time for ‘Project Landlord Shaming’. CHLEAKS will expose those from our community (self proclaimed “Lubavitchers”) and others that come from other Chassidic and non Chassidic communities and build for everybody else, expect for Jews.

If you have any information to share regarding this matter (big or small), please do so:

crown-heights-flashback-crown heights jewish community council-shmira-shomrim phone

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 (amongst all the members) and as a result, a few members involved in the robbery were thrown out of the Shomrim organization.

Letters of Distraction by Irrelevant CHJCC

December 14, 2013

Crown Heights-low information-irrelevant- Distraction News
So finally after three years of total irrelevancy we are once again honored to receive a letter with the Crown Heights Jewish Community Council Inc. letter head.

I thought to myself, can this really be? Will this letter contain information as to what the CHJCC has been up to since the last elections of 2010? Will this be the letter that will inform us as to how they assisted the [Jewish] needy of this neighborhood? Will the corrupt Cabal of the CHJCC finally tell us how and where they spent $41 Million over the years?

No, it wasn’t anything like that…just another irrelevant distraction.
