One of the two warring Bobov hasidic groups is upset over a beit din decision last week that was decided in the favor of its opponent, known until then as Bobov 48, and now known by beit din order simply as Bobov. The 45s think they got screwed, and they think the remaining part of the beit din hearings, scheduled to be held this week, might very well go against them, as well. So what are the 45s doing now that they lost the name Bobov to the (formerly) 48s? Crying, crying foul – and pulling their judge out of the Beit Din.

At the end of last week it became clear - to all that were following the B”D proceedings carefully - that we were gravely misled over the past 8 years. We were led to believe that the B”D had sympathy for us and understood that we were entitled to a serious portion of the Bobov assets.It is no secret by know that we instructed Dayan Berger not to participate in the last three B”D proceedings that were previously scheduled for Thursday, yesterday and today. After being misled and having lost trust in the B”D, the obvious strategy for now is to refocus our energy in finding a better path to move forward.
Below is the letter that our Toyen Simcha Roth sent to the B”D. Let’s hope that if and when the B”D reconvenes we will have better and more appropriate news to report.
