First Of Many To Come: Lies And Deceit

“The conclusion that is compelled by his testimony is that the affairs of the Corporation were conducted by Spritzer as though it was his personal fiefdom with occasional allusions to board approval at meetings which are nowhere documented and by resolutions which were adopted and action taken only because Spritzer divines that they were”.
(Judge Glasser Final Ruling Against Yaakov Spritzer)

Funny how things ended up. Even the Rightful (majority) directors and owners could not work and get paid in their own camp. Except of course for Spritzer and his family.

THE FOLLOWING IS A TRANSCRIPT FROM A DIN TORAH (LEGAL PROCEEDING IN A COURT OF JEWISH LAW) ON JUNE 13, 1996.

 0:01 – YAAKOV SPRITZER: IN ORDER FOR IT IT SHOULDN’T LOOK LIKE THAT YOU HAVE NEPOTISM, A PERSONAL TEVIYAH (HERBREW TRANSLATION: CLAIM) THAT NOBODY CAN HIRE HIS IMMEDIATE FAMILY TO WORK IN CAMP FOR PAY. YOU CAN BRING YOUR IMMEDIATE FAMILY THERE, BUT IT SHOULDN’T LOOK LIKE THAT YOU HAVE A PERSONAL TEVIYAH ( HEBREW TRANSLATION: CLAIM ) IM NOT TALKING ABOUT NEPHEWS OR NEICES, OR OTHER PEOPLE. AND I DIDN’T HIRE MY NEICE IN CAMP, KAHANOV (CAMP DIRECTOR AT THE TIME) HIRED, I DIDN’T KNOW SHE WAS IN THE OFFICE UNTIL I CAME THERE. SHE HAPPENS TO BE MARRIED TO MY NEPHEW AND HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ME. I DIDN’T HIRE ANYBODY. MY KID WORKED LAST YEAR IN CAMP AND I B’FEIRUSH (HEBREW TRANSLATION EXPLICITLY) TOLD HIM HES NOT GETTING PAID. AND THIS YEAR HES GOING TO BE A COUNSELOUR IN CAMP AND I TOLD HIM WE HAVE A POLICY THAT CHILDREN OF VAAD (BOARD) MEMBERS CAN NOT GET PAID AND I TOLD HIM HES NOT GETTING PAID. MY OLDER BOY WANTS TO COME TO CAMP I TOLD HIM HES NOT GETTING PAID SO HE SAYS IM NOT COMING TO CAMP TO GET MONEY, IM COMING TO CAMP TO HELP OUT. THIS IS ONE POLICY THAT WE MADE. ANOTHER POLICY THAT WE MADE WAS

0:44 – MEIR HERSHKOP: (TRANSLATION FROM YIDDISH) PLEASE YAKOV SAY IT AGAIN. NO I WANT THE RABBIS TO INFORM HIS CHILDREN

 0:49 – YAAKOV SPRITZER: WHICH PART?

 0:51 – MEIR HERSHKOP: ABOUT THE PART THAT WHEN HIS CHILDREN COME TO CAMP THEY SHOULDN’T WORK FOR MONEY AND THEY ARE COMING. FINE SAY IT AGAIN

 0:55 – YAAKOV SPRITZER: MY SON LAST YEAR DIDN’T GET PAID, YOSSI, AND HE WAS A COUNSELOR FOR THREE HUNDRED AND FIFTY DOLLARS, AND HERE HE IS THE ONLY ONE IN CAMP LAST YEAR THAT DIDN’T GET PAID.

 1:05 – MENDEL HERSHKOP: MY SON DIDN’T EITHER GET PAID, HE WASN’T THE ONLY ONE

 1:08 – INAUDIBLE.

  1. The claims of those named (above in clip), other than Shmuel Spritzer, are for services they are said to have rendered the camp in one capacity or another.

  2. confused says:

    so how did he end up with the camp? how did the bankruptcy court give him the money?

    You know, g-d darn it, I have the same question.
    After reading Judge Glassers verdict, I asked the same question as well as some others in previous comments.

    If anybody can perhaps share with us some ideas (based on actual facts and evidence), I would really appreciate it.

    I will share some of my own ideas (which will be expanded on in more detail in the future, with a post of it’s own).
    1. The lawyer [Mr.Ron Mr. Santura] for the Machne Directors/Owners, Hershkop, Goldman and Heber, was working together with Spritzer. He did not do what he was told (but the money he took).

    2. The Trustee [Mr.Conway] was working as well with Spritzer. Giving Spritzer money like a drunken sailer.
    More details to come.

  4. Chaim. H says:

    you also have to remember that Spritzer did not “win” the camp back. He “paid” almost 1.4 million

    https://machanemenachem.wordpress.com/2009/06/08/spritzer-didnt-legally-steal-the-camp-he-just-pulled-a-%D7%9E%D7%A2%D7%A9%D7%94-%D7%A9%D7%98%D7%9F/

    The camp Spritzer is running now is not Machne Menachem.

    Have in mind, that the rightful owners were making a bid to pay all the creditors, it was spritzer who made it hard on them. Now imagine we were dealing with your parents house, your parents are trying to pay the mortgage and other dept and come another (mind you) Yid/Jew and out bids them (in the case of the camp, Spritzer was part of the so called “dept”, he created the “problem to begin with), causing you and your parents to loss their house.

    Thats what I see happened here with Machne Menachem.

  5. mosh says:

    This issue is in essence about Yaakov Spritzer not about what happened in bankruptcy court, that is a different issue.
    Here Spritzer is making a statement about how children of directors should not work for pay and he nevertheless went ahead and hired his family and paid them and paid them good.

    The fact is Yaakov Spritzer lied!!!

  6. Camper says:

    have in mind that the amounts shown above of the monies the spritzer family received for “services they are said to have rendered the camp in one capacity or another” is only whats accounted for. i could only imagine how much more money, not accounted for went their way.

  7. its happening now says:

    I don’t want to mention names but only a few days ago a Yid [not a rice one] was trying to buy a house on Union Street in the auction, another Yid [from the rice families here in Crown Heights] was his only challange,
    the “rice Yid brought the price up another $100,000 and didn’t take it in the end, causing a his fellow Jew to have to pay another $100,000.

    Now, what the rice guy did is not ‘wrong’, he did not steal etc… but thats not the way a Jew behaves.

    How much more so, in the case with the camp Vda’l.

  8. Rush Limbaugh says:

    “The pursuit of truth is not a sprint, it’s a marathon. Truth always wins when it comes out. I know this for a fact.”

  9. antimesira says:

    for arguments sake lets say the camp was and is spritzer, that does not change the fact that he lied and lied in front of a Bais Din Of Three Tabbonim and other witness. He said one thing and did another. Period!!

  10. Chabad says:

    amazing how reb meir hershkop had the insight in making spritzer repeat his statement “so the rabbis can hear”.

  11. mishichist says:

    spritzer get away with it, you know why?

    because he believes the rebbes moshiach!

    he can’t do no wrong!
    after all it is he who “divines” whats right or wrong!

    Yechi Yankle Spritzer MHM!

  12. Glen Beck says:

    This goes out to all those who find away to not address the real issues and instead resort to name calling, Justifying and excusing. For those who don’t know the difference between Right from Wrong and base their “decisions”/judgments depending on who or what “party” is involved.

    Glen Beck says it best…
