So...never buy anything on any auction.

Assuming the items are authentic:

1) Items that were not stolen were never an issue. (Nobody is saying the items here were stolen)

2) The sicha about selling on auction is not only relevant to this situation but to any situation where something holy is auctioned off. Basically based on this sicha a chabad person should never buy anything holy on any auction.

There is still an issue of enriching this rasha who caused the rebbe so much pain but that is also a general question which can be found in many situations.

The sicha doesn’t say not to auction holy things. Rather the belongings of the rebbeim which contain their life in them.

its about time i the pain we saw in the rebbe then was something i will never forget tu to the writer

Who is the author

Every story has Two sides. Who wrote this article? Why wasn’t it signed. It’s easy to make up stories. I had such an experience. Terrible ugly lies were spread about me in Crown Heights. If happened that the person spreading those was the guilty party was the real culprit who did those things that they accused me of.

So painful to watch this happening after all that we witnessed over those years.
That these fraudulent sales are taking place all these years later is heartbreaking and infuriating!
Thank you for posting this article. We can only hope that anyone with mentchlichkeit and common sense will steer far from that belongs to our dear Rebbe and not cause any agmas nefesh, chas ve’sholom.

So first ColLive says...

First ColLive claims it’s fraudulent.

Now, it might not be fake but dont buy it

Not all the facts in this editorial are true
January 10, 2022 3:55 pm

The protagonist of the story was a Bochur Shliach learning in Miami Beach in 1986 when the trial was going on. Furthermore, during the time the story broke in the summer leading up to the trial, he was not even in New York. So to say that he had a relationship with the Gurarys around the time of the trial would be totally speculative and not based on any known facts.

It is also unfair for a writer to hide anonymously.

I disagree

The fight was never about these items. Only about the items taken from the library. These items are not what the Rebbe was referring to.

Thank you!

Really?!
You are saying that these items were never in 770?!

This whole article is all speculation. I remember Shimmy Deitch, I highly doubt he was the one feeding any info or even having that kind of relationship with the Gurary’s.

Besides, if all this schoirah was real and he had it for the last 30 years, who would he mit a mol sell it now? How and why was this kept a secret for the last 30 years???

Fantasy in my opinion

He is not worth our attention.

I believe after noticing his different attention seeking actions, that he is not worth our time!

Your article is wrong. Deitsch had nothing to do with the Hey Teves parsha. his class mates, friends and relatives confirmed this. Your intial article is correct. Don’t backtrack. Stand up for truth. In my conversations with someone in the know, not a card-carrying Lubavitcher but knowledgeable in the Hey Teves parsha, who was a good friend of Deitsch told me that Deitsch didn’t know Barry and Chana untill sometime in the 90s probably after Gimmel Tammuz or from 1992 after Rebbe’s stroke. Hence, his claim he got those items in the late 80s is bogus. For more about this… Read more »
