Monsey Beis Din Investigating Tropper Threatened
Visit And Phone Calls
By Rabbi Yair Hoffman • 5TJT
Members of the Monsey based Bais Din investigating the charges against Leib Tropper has been receiving a series of threatening phone calls from people. The threats have ranged from threats of utterly destroying the Rabbis to getting people to pray for the downfall and destruction of the Rabbis involved in the investigation.
The threat campaign actually began on Sunday. One of the Rabbonim was actually visited by an individual who made veiled threats against that Rav. Phone messages were left on the machine of another one of the Rabbonim. This time the threats were not veiled and more explicit.
Thankfully, the Rabbis are not being intimidated and are moving forward.
The threats came after a series of interviews were granted that discussed the investigation. We will soon post the audio of some of the threatening phone calls. The part with the actual pysical threats was not recorded. The threats that were taped involved seeking the destruction of the Rabbis investigating through prayer.
