Rumor or Fact: Is Gary Rosenblatt Being Influenced By Ner Israel, Rabbi Yaakov Hopfer and Rabbi Moshe Heinemann?

Gary Rosenblatt / Shmuel Juravel

As we all know there has been a controversy regarding the New York Week's covering of the case of Rabbi Mordechai Gafni. As it turned out Gary Rosenblatt (editor of the New York Jewish Week) and Rabbi Saul Berman have been good friends for over 30 years.

The rumor going around is that Gary Rosenblatt (who is an alumni of Ner Israel of Baltimore), is being influenced NOT to write about many cases in the Baltimore community. This includes the case of Shmuel Juravel who was recently convicted of a sex crime and was given a 22 year sentence in a federal prison.

Shmuel is the son of Rabbi Moshe and Shulamis Juravel of Baltimore, MD. Rabbi Juravel is employeed as a teacher at the Torah Institute of Baltimore. Shmuel Juravel is also the nephew of Rabbi Dovid Juravel and Rebbitzen Chana Juravel.

What's even more interesting is that the Baltimore Jewish Times never covered the story. Gary Rosenblatt is a past editor of the paper.

I guess they believe that the Jewish community in Maryland would not be interested in a case that involves one of their own?

It's well known that Rosenblatt went to Ner Israel. This is nothing new.

Brucie,
My dear friend. You are absolutely wrong once again. He's an alumni.

Why don't you go out to play with your buddies, Mordechai Gafni, David Lipman, Mordechai Tendler and Hershy Worch. I'm sure they all can show you a good time.

Thank you for posting this. I wonder if Rosenblatt is related to the Weinberg's, Tendler's or the Neubergers?

Gary grew up in Baltimore. He went to Ner Israel for HS. He lived with his grandparents to finish up after his parents moved away.

Later in life he was the editor of the Baltimore Jewish Times and then moved on to NY to be the editor of the Jewish Week.

You have got to be borderline retarded. Gary Rosenblatt did not attend Ner, he went to TA.

You can publish as many anonymous comments as you like (we all know that more than half the comments on this site come from the author of the blog pretending to be different anonymous commentors), but the truth will always win.

His grandfather worked for TA, too.

Gary Rosenblatt is saving his talents to write about this blog and the awarenesss center.

Your facts are correct to some degree and not in others.

Roseblatt grew up in Baltimore. He never attended Ner Israel, yet his family has always had very close ties to it.

Could Gary be influenced by the rabbonim of his home town? It's possible.

Shmuel Juravel pled guilty and was sent to Fed Prison for 22 years AND THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE HIS 1ST
OFFENSE.

The authorities had so much on juravel that he made a plea and was only given 22 years with a lifetime on probation..and that was his (1st offense)..

Had he gone to trial, with all that the Federal Government had on him, he could have been sent to prison for 70 years.

The BIG QUESTION still remaqins, Who knew what and when. Did his family, the Balt.Rabbi's & The Savannah Rabbi cover for him. Who knew what & when.
