Succos is Coming - WARNING: Sam Rosenbloom Refuses To Give His Wife A Get


As you know, either a man or woman refusing to give or accept a get (Jewish divorce) to allow a marriage to fully dissolve thereby holding the spouse hostage, is entirely unacceptable and intolerable.

Our community takes this issue very seriously and has made great efforts to help resolve conflicts from recalcitrant spouses both in the past and unfortunately in the present. I ask you therefore, to please respect the announcement below from the OU and to not purchase from or have any connection with its proprietor, Sam Rosenbloom.

Sam Rosenbloom has a seruv issued against him by the Baltimore Bet Din. A copy of the seruv can be viewed at

Mr. Rosenbloom owns and operates an on-line sukkah business at . We strongly recommend that no Jewish person buy from his website, that no synagogue grant him an aliyah or other religious honor or benefit, and that no Jewish family invite Mr. Rosenbloom into their home or otherwise provide him with Yom Tov or Shabbat hospitality.
