Dear Rabbi Moshe GreenIt has come to my attention that you have written a disparaging letter in English to aSupreme Court Judge, concerning my revered father. In your letter, you declare that anyGet written at my father’s Bais Din has questionable validity and is unacceptable sincesuch a Get will cause a woman to retain her married status, and any future offspring froma new marriage will be considered mamzeirim (bastards). It is well known that your statements were made on behalf of
; a recalcitrant, slanderous thief, andvicious informer, in order to continue baseless lies that she is an Agunah (chainedwoman).
In the name of Justice, Righteousness, and our holy Torah, I demand a thoroughresponse from you to the following sins which you have committed
Shaming and slandering my father
First and foremost, I protest the humiliation of my revered father “Chief Justice and Grand Rabbi of the Bais Din Kedushas Levi. Myfather has been a Rabbi for many years involved in community affairs with honesty andearnesty and without seeking honor and glory from his sacred work. He has many yearsof experience in arranging for Gittin, and has done so with the strictest standards of pietyand “Fear of Hashem”, and also received commendations from great Rabbis. I’m greatfulthat no Halachic calamities has ever arisen from any of his Gittin. I’m very upset anddisturbed at your statements and slander which makes my father appear like anignoramus in the Get process.It is well known in our Torah, that a slanderer who spreads lies about another person can“lose his portion in the next world” as well as to descend in Gehinnom (hell).Our sagesstate that he who embarrases a Rabbi is to be
“ex-communicated until he appeaseshim”.
Your attempts to minimize your statements by making such remarks as: “ I never said theGet is invalid, but rather stated that I will not officiate at a marriage of a woman who wasdivorced by Rabbi Abraham”,is ridiculous and very sneaky. Your remarks are no differentthan a Rabbi who states that he won’t eat meat at a certain individual’s home. Even if theRabbi does not declare his meat unkosher, the very fact that he declared that he wont eatat his home is
that his meat is unkosher!2)
Shaming and degrading a Bais Din
How does a person like yourself degrade andhumiliate a Bais Din and spread false rumors without substantial evidence to back your
