Peace in our times?
Rabbi Avrohom Osdoba, Rabbi Yaacov Schwei and Rabbi Yosef Braun, the 3 members of the Crown Heights Beis Din, are jointly signed on a letter for the first time, on the same letterhead.
The letter to the public, dated Friday, 16 Tammuz 5779, calls on members of the community to use the upcoming fast day to increase in learning Torah, reciting Tehillim and giving Tzedaka.
The reason they cite is the new regulations of the New York State Department of Education to limit the Judaic learning hours in Yeshivos and schools.
This joint call signals a move towards reconciliation and cooperation between the Rabbis who until have operated separately – including establishing their own kosher certification.
Their dispute have been argued in court with the latest hearing held this week, according to a source.
COLlive.com has been notified about the move towards peace a few days ago but did not report about it as to not interfere with the positive effort long awaited by many residents.
