It’s sad to how low some people can go against fellow Jews. May hashem have rachmonus already.

The shul will be rebuilt, there will also be Apartments. Which will generate income for the continued existence of the shul.

But enough about that.

True we were relocated to the downstairs shul, but reports of having cold congregants in coats is simply untrue. The downstairs shul was heated to a cozy 73° over Shabbos.

The 25 mispallim that Braved the cold weather Shabbos morning were greeted with a blast of hot air, some even complained that was too hot.

Horrible story how a few yungatches can mistreat a raabim

Another point,

We often Davened shabbos downstairs over the years, anyone saying otherwise is simply lying.

And upstairs was freezing cold and the 65 mispalelim had to cramp into the basement which was indeed heated by space heaters. And never in the the history of this Shul has we davened Shabbos in the basement. Please ignore the Zlozitzer clowns who are trolling here.

Condos will not be an income for the new shul. Developer will sell them for his profit according to the agreement
Shame how two individuals decided to tear down a bes hakneses of 111 years old. And is no uproar from the bp community

One needs not have an opinion on the actual sale to understand that leaving a Shul without heat is cruel and a chilul Hashem. The Shul itself and the people davening in it shouldn’t be pawns in a legal battle project.

The apartments will not generate income for the shul, according to the plans/documents.

I have been davening at this shul for 7 years and can’t remember ever davening downstairs on shabbos, maybe one time in the summer because the central ac was not working upstarirs.

I was there this shabbos as well, and Mincha/Mariv on motzai shabbos upstairs was freezing and I was sitting in my coat.

When the central ac was broken and you davened downstairs did COL make an issue out of it? Did the 60 mispalilim complain or they understood that there is a situation

The AC problem was simple and straightforward. No one had a problem understanding that. This current situation is much more complex and possibly devious than just a heat breakdown!

I feel very bad for the so called developer. The only thing I can see is him “developing” problems for himself R”L. Such type of actions like destroying a shul does not bring any good results. R”L sooner or later the Oibershter takes care of business. Is it really worth to mess around for a few dollars?!

When Harav Ushpol was the rov , during the summer months when people went to the country they use to daven down stairs to save electricity those huge window air-conditioners cost a fortune to run , when rabbi Raitport became the rov, he changed the policy and we davened upstairs all through the year , I davened in that shul since I was born in the 60,s untill marriage in 1988 , than moved to crown heights .My zaide made Harav Ushpol to become the rov at the shul my family davened at the shul and my father’s cousins davened… Read more »

The shul has members and a board who still daven there. Chaim waysman and Shimon Weiss daven there over 40 years and run this shul. Weissman is president close to 30 years, this shul infested with mold, it has no Mispallelim, no money. No rabbi due to not being paid for years, the building is in bad shape and needs extensive repairs what exactly would do other then criticize the hard working board of the shul doing its best to keep the future of the shul alive? Btw rabbi Goldberg’s family and friends say this shul and financial problem caused… Read more »

We have a problem with funding. Mr. P stopped funding our case and we ran out of money to pay for gas/heat.
