ראוי לנדותו הרשע גמור שמואל קמנצקי המרבה ממזרים בישראל

What happens if she is pregnant?

What is Rabbi Shmuel Kaminetsky waiting for? If a baby is born, it will be a mamzer, which is not the baby's fault and not Tamar's fault, completely. It is completely the fault of the Rosho Gomur Shmuel Kaminetsky who convinced a yesoma to leave her husband and marry without a GET and make a mamzer. For such a thing SK deserves to be put in Cherem. At least, those who do not make actual cherems may publicize


ראוי לנדותו הרשע שמואל קמנצקי


This morning I called up Rabbi Noteh Greenblatt and asked him about the tape of Rabbi Hershel Shechter stating that he spoke to Rabbi Greenblatt and told him that the Heter of Tamir was wrong because of this and that, and that Rabbi Greenblatt replied, "If I would have known that, I would not have permitted Tamar to marry." Who told Rabbi Greenblatt these fantastic reasons to permit a woman to remarry without a GET, something that all rabbonim strongly oppose, other than the Kaminetsky clan. The tape is on my brother's blog.

Rav Feival Kohen - Tamar is Still Married to Aharon Friedman and Must Leave Her New "husband"


From my brother's blog daattorah.blogspot.comMonday, January 18, 2016

Rav Feivel Cohen rules heter is worthless and Tamar needs to separate from new husband


This is the psak din and halachic ruling written by one of the most senior poskim in the Litvish American world. This is written after he went through all the details, and ruled very clearly that she has a obligation to separate from her new husband and needs a get from the first one.
It's k'dai to note, that R elyashiv respected him, and relied on him on many subjects.
Tamar: Any Hope? What Should We Do?
By Rabbi Dovid E. Eidensohn

People ask me frequently: Tamar, is there any hope? What should we do?

Here are my thoughts.

First of all, the only way to end this is for Rabbi Shmuel Kaminetsky to admit that he and his son engaged in lies and halachic distortions in order to create a Hetar for Tamar. This will never happen. Why? Because Tamar was a yesoma, without a father; her mother a widow without a husband. They obeyed their rabbi, RSK. Instead of giving the daughter stronger visitation with the father, Tamar was told to rely on RSK and his son to do something incredible, to imagine that her marriage disappeared. And she did it. Can RSK and son now admit that they were wrong and that Tamar will have a baby mamzer? I don’t think they will do it, although they will go to Gehenum for not doing it.

Second of all, RSK is ninety years old. If he reaches the stage where he can no longer clearly admit that he made a mistake, that is the end of the line. That is, there are people around who consider Rabbis Kaminetsky and Greenblatt their main rabbis. As long as these older people don’t admit their mistake, rabbis and women can decide to just take a powder from the marriages. This will create many mamzerim and will be a disaster for Klal Yisroel.

Third of all, all of us have to fight this mamzer problem and destroy the fiction and lies propagated by the Kaminetsky clan. At this point, all of the major rabbis who have spoken out on this issue, and there are many from Israel, America and Canada, the cream of the crop, have clearly stated that Tamar’s child will be a mamzer. One way is to copy this post and distribute it and to publicize the websites of me and my brother. My blog is torahhalacha.blogspot.com and my brother’s blogspot is daattorah.blogspot.com .

When the Jews under Yehoshua entered Israel after they escaped from Egypt, they came to the Jordan River. There Yehoshua told the Jews that they must be ready to enter Canaan and to battle for the land of Israel. He stated, according to the gemora in Sota 34A, that if they all go and battle for the land, fine, and if nobody goes, Joshua will go himself! Now, Joshua fighting all of the tribes in Canaan who were known to be great fighters may sound very ambitious. But once HaShem promised the land to the Jews, whoever fights, even one person, will merit HaShem’s help.

Thus it is with us. We live in a generation that tolerated the abominations of the Kaminetskies for a long time. And now it is waking up. My brother and I fought this long before other rabbis came aboard. And we are prepared to go on until this is smashed and destroyed. We owe this to the babies who will come into the world mamzerim and ask, “Why did you not save me from being a mamzer?”

Babbling of Reb Shmuel Kaminetsky's Students


Today my brother posted a new letter from the students of Rabbi Kaminetsky.It says that the second letter, that is, the part of it that I quote, is a forgery. Oh well, oh well. The rest of this post is from the second letter before it was claimed by some to be a forgery.

Let me make an appeal to some student who cares about Reb Shmuel. Ninety year old people can't stand this. Please call me. Why me? Because I was the major force in fighting Reb Shmuel for years. But I fought him leshaim shomayim. There was nothing personal just the attack on what he did with Gittin. Now I want to help settle this thing before it is serious. If you don't want to call me, I don't blame you, but I have to do what is possible, and this is it.

My brother posted an updated letter backing Rabbi Shmuel Kaminetsky from many of his students who have prominent Torah positions in Israel and America. There are two versions of the students' defense of Rabbi Shmuel Kaminetsky. The second one adds the following: [The original is on my brother's blog daattorah.blogspot.com and I add my translation here:] And we [the students] do hereby protest with all of our strength the shame of the Torah of our rebbe the glory of the generation. And whoever argues with the rebbe's decision is as one who argues with the Schechina. And even though many great in Torah and Torah scholars have criticized his pesak decision, nonetheless the Torah says, Do not turn aside from the thing that they will tell you right or left and we find in Sifri even if things appear to you that their left is really the right or that their right is really the left obey them."

My understanding is that two major rabbonim visited Rabbi Shmuel Kaminetsky to protest his encouraging Tamar to marry without a GET and they got him to sign a paper that he no longer supports her remarriage without a GET. Now this letter tells us that anyone who attacks Rabbi Kaminetsky is as if he argues with the Schechina. Now, did Rabbi Shmuel Kaminetsky sign a leter than he did not encourage Tamar to remarry? If so, what is this letter of the students all about? Either Rabbi Kaminetsky signed a lie or his students never heard about his signing a paper, and they think he still backs Tamar to remarry without a GET.

And if as I understand Rabbi Shalom Kaminetsky the son of Reb Shmuel was the main force of getting Tamar to remarry without a GET after Reb Shmuel signed a letter that he did not back her remarriage, the real issue is not with Reb Shmuel but with Reb Shalom. And if anyone who argues with Reb Shalom is as if he argued with the Schechinah, and if anyone who disagrees with Reb Shalom is violating chazal because Reb Shalom is the greatest sage of the generation, then these students really have it mixed up.

This is an incredible situation. A person whose whole life was being a Rosh Yeshiva in a very senior Yeshiva, and when it comes to defend him, nobody will say one word to explain why he did what all rabbis who will discuss it publicly are saying is making mamzerim.

Basically, if Reb Shmuel had a leg to stand on, these many Torah scholar scholar students could surely have put together a proper response, in pure halachic terms, why Reb Shmuel or Reb Shalom were right in what they did. Obviously, no such thing exists, and the students, with nothing to say to support Reb Shmuel or Reb Shalom, are reduced to babbling.

Rav Chaim Malinowitz Strongly Attacks Rabbi Feldman's contention that blogs are worse than AISHESS ISH

FROM MY BROTHER'S BLOG  Daattorah.blogspot.com
Rav Chaim Malinowitz: Rav Feldman is mistakenly transforming this outrage against the Torah into a mere dispute of poskim
Guest Post
 
The tragedy of Rav Feldman's letter , besides the emotional reference of some unspecified behavior by unspecified people being worse than being mattir an eishess ish to remarry without a Get (!) , is, in my opinion, the language in the letter relegating what has occurred to - "I respectfully disagree". The damage done by such a weak description is incalculable.

We now have a machlokess what berachah to make on rice cakes ; a machlokess about the shiur of a kezayis; and a machlokess about allowing an eishess ish to remarry without a Get based on a hired person (hired by one party) writing a report about another party's mental health without ever meeting that second party and then using that report to shop around till someone is found who will pasken that no one but no one would ever deign to live with such a person (despite the first party actually having done so for a significant period of time) and who will actually allow remarriage without a Get;  and this without a proper investigation that this "condition" actually existed at the time of the kiddushin!; and  all this without the presence or knowledge of the second party (who certainly needs to be heard from by  a Bais Din as to what he has to say to the claim of mekach to'us (may we assume that it is no worse than if I sold you a tape recorder and you claim mekach to'us?) ; and  with everyone subsequently denying that they were mattir (wasn't me, it was him; no, it wasn't me, it was him; no, no,  it wasn't me, it was him)

And this, I now read, is simply a disagreement between Poskim!

Talking about "worse"-- the cover-up is worse than the crime.

Brisker Rosh Yeshiva says that Rabbi Shmuel Kaminetsky May not Teach Torah


Rabbi Aharon Feldman: Tamar’s Heter and “Bizoyone HaTorah”
By Rabbi Dovid E. Eidensohn

Rabbi Aharon Feldman, the Rosh Yeshiva of Ner Israel Yeshiva, is  heavily involved in the remarriage of Tamar Epstein Friedman. He disagrees with those who permit Tamar to remarry without a GET, as he writes in his first letter:  “Because of all these considerations, in my humble opinion, the heter of Rabbi Greenblatt mentioned before can not be relied upon at all. Consequently Tamar retains the status of being a definitely married woman. Therefore she is prohibited in marriage to all men until these matters are dealt with in beis din according to the halacha. And in the mean time she needs to leave her second "husband" and if she becomes pregnant from him the children are viewed as mamzerim.”

[My comment on this – Briefly, the Heter is invalid and Tamar must leave her new husband and if she has a child from him the child will be a mamzer. We now continue with Rabbi Feldman’s remarks]

I now request that  you join me in my protest against the heter  - if you think what I said is correct. While I feel it is important to protest this heter to stop adultery,  but doing it by myself without the support of a group of talmudic scholars  my protest will not be accepted and effective.  My urgent concern is that this heter will open the floodgates for the ignorant in our country to decide to annul marriages in a similar problematic manner to this one. That will result in the destruction (G-d forbid!) of the holiness of the Jewish people. As you know, up until now there have been various attempts of certain rabbis who are basically ignorant of Jewish law and who have not served an apprenticeship with expert rabbis. However they have been stopped by the protest of the rabbinic leadership of our communities. However this heter is different. Since it has been issued by Rabbi Greenblatt - who is recognized as important and expert Torah scholars in these matters - the opposition to improper heterim will fall apart if there is no protest.

In addition to the danger posed because the heter has been produced by Rabbi Greenblatt, in the eyes of the public Rabbi Greenblatt  is viewed as being supported in producing the heter by one of the senior rosh yeshivos (Rabbi Shmuel Kaminetsky) of the present generation as well as his son ( Rabbi Sholom Kaminetsky) who is also a distinguished Torah scholar. Despite the fact that the Kaminetskys deny this, there is no question that many will rely on these rumors to permit the nullification of the status of being a married woman by means of this heter. That is because they think gedolim have clearly supported this heter.”
[My remarks on this – Since this new threat to family values comes not from discredited or extreme leftist Orthodox rabbis but from noted Torah scholars, it is important that the public be informed by many scholars that despite Rabbis Greenblatt and Kaminetsky approving the marriage, it is invalid, the couple must separate and a child born to them without a GET will be a mamzer. Rabbi Feldman publicizes the invalid Tamar marriage and the invalid Heter for it so that the influence of two major rabbis be negated and Tamar will not be accepted in her new marriage. From all of this it seems obvious that when my blog publicized the evil in Tamar remarrying without a GET, I should have had thanks from Rabbi Feldman. Indeed, for years when this battle between husband and wife went on, and the option of remarriage without a GET became public knowledge, I was the only one in America publicly denouncing it. For this major Torah scholars in various countries called me and congratulated me. But there was a fear for them to publicly attack these very prominent rabbis. Now, it seems, great pressure has been put upon Rabbi Aharon Feldman, and he has kept his decision that Tamar is living in sin and her child will be a mamzer from the second man. But he has decided that the blogs that attacked “gedolim” are “worse than Aishess Ish.” Because by attacking prominent rabbis they make "bizoyone haTorah." Well, it is a mitsvah in the Torah to remove the wicked from teaching Torah and to publicize that they are not truly religious people. Otherwise, they will make many women into adultery and many children mamzerim. Can there be a greater mitsvah than saving children and women from making and being mamzerim? Rabbi Feldman is being pressured by the enormous Kaminetsky lobby and he speaks here and there.

Fortunately, at the exact time that Rabbi Feldman’s signed third letter came out with this attack on the blogs, a letter came out from the Gaon Rav Avrohom Yehoshua Soloveitchik, the Rosh Yeshiva in Brisk in Israel. He writes bitterly of what Rabbis Greenblatt and Kaminetsky did and concludes that it is forbidden for anyone to study Torah under Rabbi Shmuel Kaminetsky because he is a wicked man:

מחאה של הגאון ר' א,י,סולובייצ'יק ר'י בריסק: [דהיינו הגאון רבי אברהם יהושע ר"י בריסק בארץ ישראל]
 נפל דבר בישראל
 באמריקה התירו אשת איש לשוק רח"ל בלא גט
 זהו נבלה ממש
 וחוץ מעצם הענין שאין רוצוני ליכנס בזה שהוא באמת חמור מאוד
הרי אף במקום שצריך ליכנס להתיר עגונות ישבו רבותינו האחרונים שבעה נקיים עד שהוציא פסק
וגם בזה לא היה להם די והתנו ההיתר בהצטרפות עוד גדולים
 וכאן עושים כאילו הוא דבר של מה בכך
ורשעים במחשך מעשיהם התירו ולא התירו
כאן בארץ ישראל כשרצו להתיר שני ממזרים הפכו את העולם
חובה גמורה על הרבנים וראשי הישיבות באמריקא לזעוק צעקה גדולה על זה
והרי זהו אחריות עצומה על כל המשך הדורות באמריקה כי זה פתח לכל מיני רבנציקעש שיוכלו לעשות ככל העולה על רוחם
הכל בא מהקולדז וכו
ואסור ללמוד אצל ראש הישיבה כזה וכמבואר ברמב"ם על הרב שאינו הולך בדרך טובה.


The Brisker Rosh Yeshiva Rav Soloveitchik clearly says that the Rosh Yeshiva of Philadelphia Rabbi Kaminetsky is wicked and may not teach Torah there. We have to see about his son Reb Shalom and Rabbi Noto Greenblatt, who performed the marriage on Tamar and her new husband while she was still married to Aharon Friedman. I personally feel that  people who take Tamar Epstein, a yesoma, a woman without a father, and whose mother is an almono, a widow, and encourage  her ito marry without a GET, are wicked people. . As far as studying in Philadelphia Yeshiva, what if the Kaminetsky family decides to marry Tamar’s mamzerim to a Yeshiva student?
