Kehillat New Hempstead Synagogue and Mordecai Tendler

A friend sent me a photo of Kehillat New Hempstead synagogue (New Hempstead, NY) as it stands on January 1, 2007.

It appears the name has been removed from the building. Along with any connection to Rabbi Mordecai Tendler and the Jofen Family

The image “http://www.theawarenesscenter.org/TendlerShul.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
Even though a decree had been made over a year ago basically stating Mordecai Tendler should no longer be considered a rabbi, he continues to defy the rabbonim of Monsey, NY. As unbelievable as it may sound, Tendler still has a small following of misguided individuals who are davening with him at Bais Tendler (see photo below).

Committee of Rabbinic Integrity - December 24, 2005

  1. "It is forbidden to ask for Mordecai Tendler for advice on Jewish law.

  2. This Rabbi can no longer officiate at divorces, weddings, batei dinim, etc...

  3. No one is obligated to give him any respect such as standing up for him, etc.

  4. He can no longer be a Rav or Rabbi or Dayan amongst the Jewish People!

  5. One should never allow their wives or daughters to go to his classes or to go to him at all including counseling... and all his rulings are null and void!

  6. " it is our opinion that one must not seek any advice in any area including Shalom Bayis, and certainly not in any Halachic matters pertaining to Divorce, Marriage or Conversions!
