Rav Shternbuch On Recent Events


rav-moshe-shternbuchThere are increasing rumors and comments being spread regarding the recent events surrounding the EJF organization, stating that recent revelations are not true. The following is a comment reportedly made by Maran Rav Moshe Shternbuch, Rosh Av Beis Din of the Eidah Hachareidis, to someone who questioned him regarding the circumstances. The statement of Rav Shternbuch has been reported by Rabbi Daniel Eidensohn on his website, daattorah.blogspot.com.

According to Rabbi Eidensohn, Rav Shternbuch said the following:

The fact that this story with the accompanying accusations has been printed in newspapers around the world, the normal thing would be to hire the best lawyer in the world and issue a public denial and sue all the papers for libel. The mere fact that this has not been done is the biggest proof the accusations are true. It is an example of what our Sages say that silence in the face of an accusation is understood to be an admission – ‘shetikah kehoda’ah.'”

  1. Tapes are available.
    Unless they were doctored, they are tantamount to an actual Hoda’ah.
    I know that in beis din we need eidim, but…

  2. Rabbosai,

    Thank you matzav for addressing this important issue. I hope and pray that all of the former Rabbinic Supporters of EJF resign when they realize that this was all about power ego & money.

    Very Sincerely,

    An Out of Town Rov
