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..

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!

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.
