Misaskim Disavows Burying Shaimos of Neighborhood Trucks


misaskimA Shaimos truck parked opposite the Shomrei Shabbos shul in Boro Park was one of the many trucks that dot frum Jewish neighborhoods before Pesach. The attendant at the truck told donors of the shaimos that burial will be done by Misaskim.

Officials of Misaskim and police responded to a complaint by a would be donor leading Misaskim to warn people that they must check with these trucks under whose rabbinic auspices they operate. Misaskim officials said that the fraud of many of these trucks was exposed in the past only to return to the streets this year. Needless to say the shaimos are in danger of being abused.

“Misaskim does not bury shaimos with the notable exception of when it conducted the burial of shaimos in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy,” an official of the organization said. He urged people to consult with their rabbonim or in the very least to determine under whose auspices the burial will take place.
