    Donet invest tzedakah money with bad people!! you have a achrayus to watch who you give money to! next time do some reaserch and you will see he had a whole line of debt!! you are dealing with hard earned money i hope you repay all the people who donated the funds!!

    a small real estate firm is not a public corp. and its not easy to get financial records for a private corp..

    Give the guy a break!

    Amzing how fast you are to judge Rabbi Hecht! He just lost a large sum of money and all you can do is judge him like a bunch of Monday morning quarter backs. Shame on you all!

    Maybe Rabbi Hecht can organize Morality Course in Dutchess County at the same time he organizes his Dating Course in Crown Heights. 🙂

A shliach worked hard with his sweat and blood to raise money for a down-payment so they can expand their reach, and is trying to support his rapidly growing family at the same time (his wife just gave birth to twins a few weeks ago!!) and all you can do is bash him??? Everyone’s a critic, as long as it’s not YOUR pocket. Just say ‘Woa, that must be tough! Hatzlacha Rabba in the future, and may this fall lead to a greater aliya and great success.’… Read more »

    Speak to the Bankrupcy Trstee about fraud and ask that he dismiss the Bankruptcy or be put first.

    Did any of you stop and think, that perhaps the reason he is making such a big deal about this amount of money is because to him it is a lot? I am not a shliach writing this, just a member of Lubavitch. I work very hard for my money, and $8,500 is a tremendous amount of money for me too. I know we all hear stories of shluchim who have huge donations pouring in, and million dollar Chabad Houses. I don’t know what the area where this shliach lives is like, but I think the fact he is making… Read more »
