Post Warning!!

My father just came home from shul where he saw posted a warning from the Gedolim that the tikkun of 100 shofaros in Amuka is COMPLETELY A SCAM!! It said that anyone who committed money does not need to pay it up. Just wanted to let everyone know!

I don't know how you can say that about the Abuchatzaira family such holy people. Its probally just a bunch of politics.

Rochi I don't think you should give your opinion without first hand information. A last name isn't everything. If the Rabbis say something they probably know what they are talking about.

I saw a letter signed by R'Avrohom Shorr, R'Moshe Tuvia Lieff and R'Yisroel Reisman saying that ads that promise good fortune to people in return for them giving Tseddaka are to be ignored as they are not true, and that these ads take advantage of people who are suffering. It says you should consult your Rav before responding to the ads.

(I would paste the letter here if someone could tell me how to paste a .jpg here. I can't figure it out.)

The major leading Roshei yeshiva in the US issued a sharply worded letter about recent advertisements in the frum newspapers and magazines promising to deliver for a fee, the salvation, a shidduch for many singles through the powers of kabbalah. They called on all those who were misled into giving money to this segulah are in no way bound by such commitments. They may cancel the pledge and are entitled to a full refund. It is signed by Harav Dovid Shustal, Lakewood, Harav Shmuel Kamenetzky, Philadelphia, Harav Aaron Feldman, Baltimore, Harav Elya ber Wachtfogel, South Fallsburg, Harav Avrohom Chaim Levin, Chicago, Harav Malkiel Kotler, Lakewood, Harav Yitzchok Sorotzkin, Telz-lakewood, Harav Moshe Green, Monsey.

Here is the letter:

The anguish of many of our brothers and sisters who are anxiously awaiting their zivug is well known. we are therefore greatly disturbed by the recent pronouncements advertised in many Jewish media outlets promising to deliver, for a fee the salvation they so anxiously seek through the supposed powers of kabbala. The advertisers falsely claim that they can see the heavenly obstacles preventing a person from getting married, and unlock the gates of their fortune, through the power of "Kabalistic rituals" and "secret formulas" , all of which is foreign to our holy Torah and perfect faith. Even worse, they brazenly guarantee that anyone who pays a fixed sum ($648) and receives their "zivug set"will marry within a short time a statement which bellies any facade of legitimacy.

We hereby announce the truth: anyone claiming to know the heavenly workings, and is guaranteeing to manipulate them,is not to be believed. Marketing this power as a commercial enterprise crosses the border into deception and exploitation of the public. contrary to what the advertisements would lead one to believe, true tzadikim have never claimed such powers much less brazenly marketed them to people in need.

We strongly protest the desecration of torah and the transparent opportunism that is taking place. There is no doubt that those who were innocently misled into giving money in exchange for such guarantees are in no way bound by such commitments. We hereby advise that they cancel their pledge and request a full refund of all moneys already committed.

Dear brothers and sisters! The gates of heaven are open to all who approach in sincerity, and in the merit of following the Torah commandment of "Tomim tihiyeh in Hashe Elokecha" by relying on Hashem and turning to him with complete faith, may we all experience the divine providence granted to those who serve Him and trust only in Him.

It's interesting I just looked at the brochure they sent out and it says you will bez"h have a Yehoshua I think if you think into it it's not really that bad. I mean if Hashem helps of course you'll have a yehoshua, know what I mean?
