Beis Din ???????? ?????? ????? ?? ????? ????? ???

JERUSALEM (VINnews) — Two years after the death of the Sadigora Rebbe and after many months of dispute and discussion over his will, the Bnei Brak Beis Din headed by Rabbi Sariel Rosenberg has ruled that only the rebbe in Bnei Brak, who is the younger son of the rebbe, can use the name ‘Sadigura’.

Currently the rebbe’s two older brothers, Rabbi Mordechai Shalom Yosef and Rabbi Aharon Dov Ber, are known as the Admorim of Sadigura-Jerusalem and Sadigura-London. However a letter signed by Rabbi Rosenberg as well as Rabbi Yehuda Silman, Rabbi Yaakov Farbstein, Rabbi Meir Heisler and Rabbi Mendel Shafran states that “in the previous rebbe’s will which was ratified in Beis Din it is stated that he appoints his son Rabbi Yitzchak Yehoshua Heshel as his successor and heir to the RUzhin-Sadigura chasidic group and that he will head all the institutions worldwide which bear the name Sadigura or Ruzhin-Sadigura.

“Since you (the other brothers) are raising funds in the name of Sadigura or Ruzhin-Sadigura and using the symbols used by the previous rebbe’s institutions in contravention of the will, and this leads to deceptive transfers of funds which should reach these institutions and now reach other places which are not under the authority of the heir mentioned in the will, and this causes damage to those institutions, we are therefore issuing a temporary injunction.

According to this injunction, besides Rabbi Yitzchak Yehoshua Heshel Friedman and his kehilla which is under his sole supervision, no other man, body or institution can use the name Sadigura or Ruzhin-Sadigura or to raise funds under these names, and it is forbidden to use the symbols which served the institutions under the previous Admor.

The Rabbis concluded by stating that the injunction will be valid “until a discussion and mutually accepted decision regarding all of the issues remaining between the sons of the previous Admor zts’l.
