There is a tone to this article which is not quite right. Since this is a public forum, the Torah way would be to either give praise that is really praise or to omit the article altogether.

There is a HUGE difference people! i would like to know which idiot told collive that he was the chief rabbi? Berel Lazar has been Russia’s chief rabbi for nearly twenty years!

Only this? How about ....

BTW he has like 5 Chabadniks working for him. No where is he on record ever speaking against Chabad. Lazar did to him a lot more avlos than he ever did to Lazar and/or Chabad. He also took this same group in St Petersburg to the prison that the Baal Hatanya sat in.

He has been in Russia just as long as Rabbi Lazar. As a bochur I was stuck in Moscow in 1991 and stayed by him.

As for the Chief Rabbi thing, Russia actually recognizes both of them as Chief Rabbis (for the last 20 years), so halt zach ayn in di ramen.

Corrections from an ex Moskvich

a) Goldschmidt claims only to be chief rabbi of Moscow. the phoney chief rabbi is Shayevich, who is a leftover from the USSR and is not qualified. b) He and his daughter have written inflammatory articles about Chabad and he IS on record as having made statements against Chabad. He is also an official of the very anti Chabad Conference of European Rabbis which now has been surpassed by Rabbi Garelik’s organization and does little for anyone. His shul used to sell unzerer cholov Yisroel with the Chabad stickers removed. c)Goldschmidt purposely hires Lubavitchers who do not get along with… Read more »

firstly, he’s the chief rabbi of moscow, which rabbi lazar isn’t. secondly, there was an article from his daughter printed in yeshiva university student paper calling for rabbis to vet all chabad rabbis to make sure they arent apiorsim ch”v. thats something she probably heard at home

the issue Pinchas Goldschmidt hade is NOT with Lubavitch, fyi his wifes family were early supporters of Bris Avrohom. Berel Lazar used Pinchas Goldschmidt as a skapegoat to advance his political agenda and created a fight with Pinchas Goldschmidt, if not for Berel Lazar starting a fight with Pinchas Goldschmidt he would have been a great friend of Lubavitch.
for #6 Berel Lazar was elected chief rabbi of Russia in June 2000 and Pinchas Goldschmidt hade the title of Chief Rabbi of MOSCOW in the early 1990’s

I know Rabbi Goldschmid personally, he is a Big Talmid Chochom, a Ehrliche Yid, a person who helps everyone, and AFAIK he has never said a bad word about Chabad, but Chabad has said plenty against him. He wrote a book called “Zikaron BaSeifer” which has Teshuvos about how to do specific Halachic procedures in Russia and Lubavitchers use it. There are quite a few Chabad Mosdos which are officially aligned with him and not with Or Avner (such as Chabad in Kazakhstan).

Let us not forget!!!

Don’t forget how Rabbi Avrohom Berkowitz, (now former) Executive Director of the Federation of Jewish Communities of the CIS, was attacked inside Goldschmidt’s mikvah and was almost killed:

I was in the room when these pictures were taken and spent two weeks on a cruise where Rabbi Goldshmidt was invited as the guest Rabbi. He actually spoke highly about Chabad. I found him to be very informed on all issues that he discussed, a very pleasant individual

HOW CAN MOSHIACH COME WITH SO MUCH MACHLOKES WITHIN THE FRUM COMMUNITY
Guest
HOW CAN MOSHIACH COME WITH SO MUCH MACHLOKES WITHIN THE FRUM COMMUNITY

Rabbi Berel Lazars father was an amazing Pirchei Agudah leader and head councellor of Camp Agudah, High Mount NY.
Rabbi Lazar ad his father have worked for the Klal all their lives and only want to help bring Moshiach in our generation by being Mekarev thousands upon thousands of Yeeden. So put the nonsense and rivalry in the trash can. Whatever we can do to have the Russian Hiarchy help us to achieve this ultimate goal and merit the coming of Moshiach IY’H.
