Sources tell EN that several months ago, Rav Shlomo Feivel Schustal, shlit”a, Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshivas Tiferes Yerachmiel of Lakewood wanted to reopen his Yeshiva after being closed for some time due to the COVID-19 crisis. At the time, he was threatened by an individual in the community that if he were to reopen, authorities would be contacted to ensure that his Yeshiva remains closed. The individual is politically powerful and has strong ties with BMG and The Lakewood Vaad.
Don’t believe the story? Feel free to contact the Rosh Yeshiva directly. He lives at 3 New York Ave., Lakewood, NJ.
אל תגעו במשיחי
Desecration of Torah
Do you feel that it’s okay for a controlling ba’al habus to threaten a Rosh Yeshiva because the former disagrees with the Rosh Yeshiva’s position? Are ba’alabatim endowed with disagreeing with leading Rabbonim simply because the underlying issue is one which pertains to public health?
