Stealing from his own is even more disgusting than keeping it from the charities- in other factions it's called dirty laundry.

The beer was, of course, extraordinary, and if you would like a good recommendation for flammkuchen, spaetzl, etc, there's a great place near Oranienbergstrasse, a few blocks in, away from the main drag.

Oktoberfestbier ist sehr gut, nicht wahr, Herr Alternativ Kindersichermann?

Kussen Sie das Boden da?

MrA: I've been traveling again. Got to spend the holidays in your favorite country, so haven't been able to keep up with all the goings on here. Sorry if the time zones caused you any pain about my whereabouts.

Well, at least his wife doesn't wear pants, so he's still a tzaddik. Not like that sleazy giyores who had the temrity to wear women's slack while shopping. Imagine that? Someone living in the 21st century wearing 21st century garb.

Mr. Apikoros

Welcome back, AC! Been wondering where you've been. This site's not been quite the same in your absence.

Tsk, tsk. Posting at 3:20 AM Israel Daylight Savings Time. Defiling Shabbot and Shemini Atzeret? What will your god say about this? You've ensured that Israel will get no rain until next Rosh Hashana.

Sure, I'm doing the same thing. But my god (well, one of them, anyway) is Wotan, and his holiday is Halloween. We've bought all kinds of stuff, witches, ghosts, bats, etc. to celebrate OUR holiday.

All kidding aside, AC, you missed a heck of a debate between the blogmeister and myself. Or maybe not.

Mr Apikoros: You have problems with the conversion process? You intermarried once, and bragged on this site that you will do it again, without any attempt whatsoever at conversion! What meaningful view can a person who does not even recognize tefillin offer on anything to do with halachic Judaism?

It is the equivalent of my suggesting to Tibetan Buddhists how they should pick their lamas.


Ya know what? When I can I give to local verifiable charities of my choice, and that's it. I"m done guessing who is legit and who is Mr. Ripoff.

Mr. Apikoros

I agree with you, Itch. It's like Bernie Madoff scamming Ivan Boesky.

Of course, I have huge problems with the entire conversion process.


Guma and Tropper are two of a kind. I really find it hard to have much sympathy for Guma and his wife. They were using Tropper like he was using them.


I feel bad for Guma. He thought that Tropper being ultra-haredi will be a warranty on his wife's conversion. Tropper took Guma for a ride. He kept requesting and taking millions of Guma's money, while never delivering on the promise of Jewish security for Guma's wife and children. In fact Tropper threaten's Guma by putting his wife's conversion in doubt.

Guma is assaulted on personal level and has learned hard lesson.

What have I learned from entire EJF affair? I've learned never to trust any Rabbi with security of my family. I've learned never to trust Rabbinical system. I've learned, sadly, that black robe and black hat is not an indicator of decency, but rather a warning sign. Anyone belonging to haredi cult is now a suspect in my eyes. I'm sure that there are lots of decent people in haredi community, but I'm no longer is giving them automatic "trusted person" pass just based on their dress code.


Tropper, Guma, Kaplan and Bomzer all make me sick. They should all just go away already.


Is it possible that Guma is coming back at Tropper for brinning Tropper to court for assault?
The story is getting curioser and curioser.

Who is going to win Guma (rich, but married to a questionalbe convert) or Tropper (rabbi, but creepy and controlling person trying to glorify himself by cleaning Jewish people from "improper" converts)?

Lets split in teams and cheer. I want Tropper, Eizenstadt, Sherman rabbinical extortion mafia to be exposed for nuts and criminals they are.

And yes, this is a good piece of journalism out of INN.


No Surprise. No comment on the allegations. If they do turn out to be true, I would not be surprised. I remember this "eccentric" "Rabbi" and he is indeed a character.
