Their is no impartial beis din in australia so both parties agrees to be heard before the london beis din. I thought that would be obvious. You should wait before you click the post button and think the comment through. think people think

I agree with comment six totally. Rabbi Moseh Gutnick is a fabulous and understanding person AND rov. I am glad he won this din torah. I hope this brings menuchas hanefesh to him and his wonderful wife Esti and they beautiful family.

There is no question that Rabbi Moshe Gutnick is a hard working rabbi. BUT why should a shul (which means it’s members) be forced to pay a large salary for a very part-time rabbi? Sure he has worked there for many years but this was not his main position. The outcome does not seem fair to me.

Facts are facts.

Facts are facts.

The point is that no one really won here. The shul was disintergrating because the rabbi was no longer a draw card,, Another rabbi started a shul nearby that initiated the demise of the Mizrachi Shul. Rabbi Gutnick simply wasn’t a contestant in that area.
Who is the one really responsible for that?
The rabbi or the shul?
The bottom line.. it was all about money.

a beis din is a beis din and the london beis din has one of the best reputations in the world. the fact that they are impartial adds to this particular case as other comments here have suggested

If he was such a great Rabbi why was he so scared of the EGM. This would have enabled the Kehillah to have its say & remember 2/3rds had to vote against the Rabbi for him to be made redundant.
Hence your amzingly great Rabbi Gutnick was terrified that over 2/3rds of his community would vote to get rid of him.

What a mensch!!!

In the end Justice prevailed! Kol Hakavod to you Rabbi Gutnick on the outcome of the Beis din.

Sorry – how does one “win” a Din Torah? All a Din Torah does is to decide what the Halohoch is, and both parties agree to it. There are no “winners” or “losers” – both parties accept that the Beis Din has been “mevarer” what was always the correct position.
