The Bais Din’s Latest Psak Regarding Machne Menachem
Wednesday 24 Adar, 5767
To R’ Spritzer and the Brothers R’ Meir and R’ Mendel Hershkop Sheyiehyu.
As there was no conclusion and Psak Din (ruling) with regard to the ownership of Machne Menachem. And there are complaints over the partnership of the above mentioned camp. We are notifying with this letter that until these complaints will be discussed and concluded by a Bais Din that deals with monetary issues on a steady basis in accordance with our holy Torah, there is no permission for anyone to open the camp (even under another name) and use it as his own. We are putting an (ikul) injunction on R’ Yaakov Spritzer not to open the camp and not register any children or hire workers for the camp until the complaints will be adjudicated at a Bais Din.

In the name of the Bais Din
Rabbi Yitzchak Raitport
Rabbi Segal sends out a notice to the Bais Din of Monsey about this case:
As of Today, (June 3, 2009- 11 Sivan) Spritzer has not shown up to a Din Torah. He is managing to delay the process (as he is known to do), but to the Din Torah he is not showing up.
The Monsey Bais Din sends Spritzer a Warning
The following letters were given out last year (2008) by the original directors of Machne Menachem.
Isru Chag Pasach 5768 -2008
Soldiers of the Rebbe or Mutineers against the Rebbe
Of late a member of our community gave notice that he is opening a summer camp by the name of Chayolei Hamelech in Lackawaxen, PA.
We are hereby notifying the community that this is mutiny against the Rebbe Chas Vesholom. According to Torah law we are the rightful owners of that property and do not give him permission to use this property. One who sends his children to this camp is considered a thief C”V. In a camp on stolen property, one can never accomplish a Chassidic education.
The Crown Heights Bais Din has put an injunction on Mr. Spritzer and forbade him to use these premises, until the ownership will be determined (attached is the B”D Letter).
Upon the advice of the Bais Din we called for a Din Torah outside Crown Heights. We called Mr. Spritzer to the Bais Din of Machon Lehoraya in Monsey (see attached doc) and after 3 Hazmonos and warning to Siruv he started mocking the Bais Din, he was warned by the Bais Din to stop mocking them. As of today he has not appeared in front of the Bais Din.
With blessing of a healthy and safe summer
Board members of Machne Menachem
