Re: Tendler v. Doe
Santa Clara County No.1 06 cv 064307

Dear Clerks:

I respond to the letter from Mordecai Tendler that is dated February 7, 2007, but which he faxed to us on February 9. Tendler asks to be allowed to pursue this appeal without identifying all documents in the record (because he claims not to have all of them) and without payment of fees.

Although Tendler is currently proceeding without counsel, as he has every right to do, two separate lawyers began this case on his behalf – Patrick Guevara of Pleasanton, California, who appeared for Tendler in this court, and James Fleisher from Dayton, Ohio, who apparently brought Mr. Guevara into the case. Those attorneys would have all the records he needs to present a complete record on appeal, and there is no reason why Tendler cannot ask his former attorneys to provide him with such records so that he can be sure to have them included in the appellate records.

Tendler also asserts that he cannot afford to pay any fees on the appeal. He has not, however, submitted the sworn affidavit about his assets and his income that is required for in forma pauperis status. We question whether he can swear truthfully to that status. Tendler is from suburban Rockland County, New York, the nation’s ninth wealthiest county. See .... Although he was expelled by the Rabbinical Council and fired by his congregation over allegations of sexual misconduct, his wife Michelle apparently works as a realtor, he is the scion of a wealthy and important family, and our information from a lawyer in his community is that last week, Tendler hosted a wedding for his daughter (NAME REMOVED) that was catered for seven hundred sit-down guests. In the event, therefore, that Tendler submits an affidavit of poverty, we reserve the right to serve discovery and take his deposition to test the veracity of any oath that he swears on these points.

Sincerely yours,
Paul Alan Levy

I read on another blog that a member of the Feinstein family was sexually assaulted in school and they chose to do nothing. Does anyone have the details?

Look's like Tendler is up Dreck's creek without a paddle.

Jewish Whisteblower might know details about the Feinsteins. You can also post a comment on UOJ as he sometimes responds to readers.

Is it true Rabbi M. Feinstein refused to allow parents to go to the police on Mondrowitz?
I'm a victim of Mondrowitz and would likely give up my faith in Orthodoxy if it were true.

Rabbi Mordecai and Michelle Tendler have a lot of money. He is director of certain agencies. Paying for 700 sit down guests? If he claims poverty I wonder if the swiss banks got richer? He claims poverty? He paid a settlement of 100,000 or more for a woman to keep quiet. I wonder if it was the woman who got up during kiddush, grabbed the wine cup away from Mischelle his wife and screamed to the congregation that she was pregnant with his child? It really happened. I even know the woman's name. Rabbi, I am amazed that Michelle hasn't thrown you out on you ear? Then again her soul isn't exactly clean either. I have so much dirt on her. Ha Shem must be waiting to give you something special...hee hee. There is an old Bhuddist saying..." what goes around comes around". I am awaiting patiently to see your day of judgement Michelle. It will be a blessing when you fall into disgrace with your husband.
