RABBI SHLOMO WEISSMANN SERUVThe American Beth Din summoned Rabbi Shlomo Weissmann to their Beth Din. Three hazmanot (summons) were sent certified return receipt and were accepted. Shlomo Weissmann failed to appear, nor requested an alternative Beth Din, nor gave any reason/excuse for not appearing. As a Nitva(defendant), Shlomo Weissmann could have chosen a different Beth Din.Shlomo Weissmann expects people to follow his rules and procedures, but appears to believe that these same rules do not apply to him. This seruv was completed over a year ago (August 27, 2013). It was held by the American Beth Din; on the hope that Shlomo Weissmann would reflect, review, reconsider, and do Tshuva (repentance). We had wished that Yom Kipper would have reminded him of his transgression(s); obviously we were wrong and therefore we now publish the seruv. A rabbi should be an example for his community. In today’s world of corruption and dishonesty a rabbi must make special efforts to keep his good name and only do Mitzvahs. The epitome of a hypocrite is a rabbiof a Beth Din who would ignore a hazmanah about matters involvingsomething as serious as issuing bogus seruv(s). Silence is not a goodposition to take in this matter.How can Shlomo Weissmann expect any litigant to accept his Beth Din rulings, Kosher Hashgacha, or whatever when he refuses to defendhimself about these serious issues.
RABBI GEDALIA DOV SCHWARTZThe American Beth Din summoned Rabbi Gedalia Dov Schwartz to theirBeth Din. Three hazmanot (summons) were sent certified return receiptand were accepted. Gedalia Dov Schwartz failed to appear, nor requestedan alternative Beth Din, nor gave any reason/excuse for not appearing.As a Nitva (defendant), Gedalia Dov Schwartz could have chosen adifferent Beth Din, but did not.This seruv was completed over a year ago (September 30, 2013). It washeld by the American Beth Din; on the hope that Gedalia Dov Schwartzwould reflect, review, reconsider, or do Tschuva (repentance). We hadwished that since two Yom Kippers have transpired, that this would havereminded him of his transgression(s). Besides the above, the world is aware of his association with RabbiAryeh Dudovitz (child molester) and Rabbi Barry Freundel (voyeurist)and how he signed off on all of Barry Freundels conversions; wheremany of Freundels converts did not even study or go to conversion class;a shanda fur die goy. Truly a disgrace to conversions around the world.“A good name takes a lifetime to acquire but only an instant to ruin”– Rabbi Yisroel Baal Shem Tov (Besht). It is with a sad and heavy heart that we must now publish a seruvagainst Gedalia Dov Schwartz.
