  2. Dear Friends,

    We have heard of reports on social media of a federal raid in Lakewood today.

    That raid was not of ‎BMG, nor of Chemed, nor of any entity, agency or person affiliated with either BMG or Chemed.

    If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me or to Rabbi Kotler.

    Thank you‎,

    Mrs. L. Rosenzweig, on behalf of Rabbi Aaron Kotler

    2. Mrs. Rosenzweig,
      Unfortunately (and with good reason) your office has no credibility anymore. So, nice try.

    4. Had a very bad experience with chemed, wouldn't recommend anyone but i wouldn't want them to get in trouble.

    5. Why not SCHI?

    6. SCHI takes the responsibility of educating the children that so need their help. The Yeshiva's dissociation of itself from the selfless Target of this raid is a sad lesson that KOl Yisroel areivim zeh lazeh does not apply to those who think their institution is above it all. Possibly they are not a part of us. It is sad to note that Rav Aaron kotler zatzal founder of BMG
      fought to save klal yisroel as a whole at the expense of his own yeshiva. I guess that isn't the same today. Self interest rules the day.

    7. You are absolutely wrong. Chemed is affiliated with BMG. The raid took place in the building prominently displaying Chemed. There was an assumption that Chemed and BMG was a target. They had all the right to say they were not a target. What is wrong with that ? BMG is a very publicly known institution and it is important to quash false rumors about it. They did not say anything about who the raid was for. I don't agree with everything BMG or AK foes but here they did nothing wrong.

    8. I guess some understand "we are all Freddie Gray".Some don't. A nice statement saying that we stand behind SCHI, will help and protect them and anything they need would have been nice and would have passed the same message along to the powers that be that we will throw our weight behind them. As I said self interest rules

  4. They were trying to figure out why the parking lot at Shloimy's wasn't bursting at the seams.With such great BBQ chicken specials and fantastic steaks sale, you gotta be NUTS to go anywhere else!

    עשרות חוקרים של הבולשת הפדרלית בארצות הברית פשטו על מוסדות רפואה וחינוך מיוחד בעיירה ליקווד, זאת במסגרת חקירה חשדות להונאות ביטוח. פשיטה גם על בתי בכירים באזור (חרדים,עולם)

  6. Very surprised Yeshiva world news did not have its usual "major Chilul Hashem" headline

  7. Is anyone surprised YWN and Lakewood PooperScooper didn't mention SCHI but managed to tell us BMG and CHEMED were not targets? At least Hefkervelt linked to the APP article, which has recently been updated...

  8. you can speculate fun heint biz murgen no one knows what they are looking for.

  9. This letter from our CEO through his secretary was removed by both Yeshiva world and the scoop. I guess CEO realized how bad it makes him look. So now we will just pretend nothing g is happening and let Schi fend for themselves. And if 300 special needs families are left stranded who cares. Typical day in Lakewood. Every man for himself.

  10. How do you expect anybody to fend for Schi ? Does BMG know what they are looking for or have any clue about schi that they should fend for them ? You sound so ridiculous.

  11. will this have any effect on property taxes

  12. so much speculation i heard it has to do with solar panels.

  13. These bloated govt agencies have to show and justify the expense they cost tax payers. Executing raids like this one is good PR no matter the outcome.

  14. Also surprised Matzav.com did not post about it. Yet by the FBI raid in Monsey and KJ Matzav was all over it. Does matzav cover chasidim and Litvaks differently?

    1. matzav also posted about the 3 bochurim arrested in Israel over drug smuggling but they were nice enough to take out that it was bochurim.

  15. The agents here are from the state it's not Federal as some claimed. It could be anything could be a small thing but the government likes to make a big splash just like what was done in KJ and Monsey.
