Video: Chabad's Postville Yeshiva Named For Convicted Felon Sholom Rubashkin

Not only that, as you can see on this video, the yeshiva is openly messianist (the yellow flags in the yeshiva's Lag Ba'omer parade and the "yechi" yarmulkes worn openly by some students), and the parents of these messianist kids are often the schochtim and mashgichim working at Agri Star. And, as you can see at right, the yeshiva says, Postville is "Sholom Mordechai's [Rubashkin's] Town."



From COLLive:

Life In Rubashkin's Yeshiva

A video shows the recent daily life in Yeshiva Bais Sholom, the Mesivta in Postville named in honor of its founder, R' Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin.

Maybe the town's name should be changed to Postmortem.

what will the students graduate as? crooks?

The meat that they serve there for dinner -- where does it come from?

Puppy uppers.

dh, did you place a travel curse on me? My first trip after your hilarious diatribe and I'm sniffling away...

Seriously, I meant no harm when I laughed at the wands, surgical mask,and vinegar perfume...

The name rings better than "Yeshiva Bais Felon"

But I hear they will at least offer secular subjects like:
- math (tax evasion 101)
- political science (bloc voting)
- social studies (defrauding section 8 funds)

News Flash. Apparently Chabad is going to embrace all secular subjects and send their bochorim to the Bernie Madoff Graduate School for Business Ethics.

Eli Messiah, if my curses worked I wouldn't still be seeking revenge for Gordie after 10 years.

For your runny nose, may I suggest tearing a tissue in half, shmushing it up and securing the top in your nose. No one ever says a word about it and it keeps one's hands free for scratching and such.

Whom else but the frumma would name an institution after a convicted felon?

What amazed me about the yeshiva video was that they all weren't learning that idolatrous and satanic "chassidus" and the idolatrous ejaculations from the perverted mind of MM Schneersohn.

In the footage, they all seemed to be learning from standard Jewish texts. That's something quite commendable.

It'd be kind of funny and ironic if they sent in child welfare authorities to arrest the heads of that yeshiva because the kids weren't wearing proper safety gear while working with power tools!

The last scene was great. If only they had swastika banners and threw some books into the massive idolatrous bonfire, it'd be a nostalgic trip back to the wonderful days of the thirties in Central Europe! Both groups worshipped the same god.

really? I was more impressed by their constant horseplaying, their heretic yarmulkes proclaiming who their moschiach is, and the flags of the 'armies of g-od' -that is Hezbollah in Hebrew.
the pretend studies were just décor background to confuse the skeptics about a yeshiva honouring a multiple life sentence felon fraudster.

to be fair about the books & the curriculum, I re-watched the clip;
and noted the following:
- an apparent artscroll chumash?
- 1 book on messianic times on geula
- many appearances of the moshiach flags
- many yechi yarmulkes (apparently the norm! minhag hamaqom).
- a kid leaning on a pile of chabad siddurs tehillas hashem.
- were they building a replica of 770?

I noticed one of the boys operating a fork lift. Don't most jurisdictions require a license or operator training to use one of those?

(The Real David.)

The Rubashkin Yeshiva reminds me of the Gambino Crime Family Medical and Science Foundation.

Notice the photo of the Mafia leader and his wife:

Here's another photo of him:

In the early 1990's the Gambino Foundation made a huge donation to the pediatric oncology center at Hackensack Medical Center (NJ). There were complaints from doctors and nurses when the hospital accepted the money and was going to put up a big sign with the Mafia Don's name. The hospital later decided not to put up a sign, but as I recall, they kept the money. Refusing the donation was never even considered by the hospital's leadership.

Northshore LIJ Hospital has no problem taking Gambino Crime Family money, either.

So it's not so unusual for criminals to have schools and hospitals named in their honor, or otherwise accepting big donations from them.

WSC
the analogy is somewhat not totally identical. :-)
in the case of Gambino, they were donating to an institution that is part of society at large.
in the case of potzville however, the institution is an integral part of the famiglia & the students neither heal others nor others heal them.
they graduate instead in the esoteric sciences of the cosa nostra.

YbM, good point. The Mafia donations were for a legitimate medical cause. The frumma only donate to help themselves.

The video illustrates what I remember from the Lubavitcher Yeshiva. Most of the time is spent fooling around, drinking, eating, and engaging in weird arts and crafts such as building models of 770, preparing for the Lag B'Omer parade, menorahs and sukkah mobiles, etc.

What's the term that the Lubavitchers call their practice of sending bochurim out in order to proseletize etc?

"What's the term that the Lubavitchers call their practice of sending bochurim out in order to proseletize etc?"

They don't call it "kiruv", because it means "outreach", and that isn't what they're doing. They're just helping Jews to behave the way God wants them to and to perform mitzvot.

This is what they tell themselves.

No, the terms aren't "kiruv" or "Mormon"... They have some idiotic term (Russian-Yiddish perhaps?) for when the yeshiva kids go out and put tefillin on people. What's that stupid term???
