ORA honours Rabbi Feldman

Over seventy Rabbis from the majority of Orthodox congregations in Australia and New Zealand were in attendance.

Last week, the Organisation of Rabbis of Australasia (O.R.A.) gathered in Sydney's Yeshiva Centre at their biannual Rabbinic conference for two intense days of discussions in contemporary Halachic issues ranging from Trauma counseling to abortion and organ donation.

Over seventy Rabbis from the majority of Orthodox congregations in Australia and New Zealand were in attendance.

Rabbi Mordechai Gutnick of Melbourne Victoria, Immediate Past President of O.R.A., noted that, "with the recent passing of Rabbi Yitzchok Dovid Groner, the longest serving Rabbi in Australasia is currently Rabbi Pinchus Feldman OAM, Dean & Spiritual Leader of Sydney's Yeshiva Centre and Head of Chabad in NSW."

Rabbi Dovid Freilech of Perth, Western Australia and the newly elected President of O.R.A. proposed the following resolution which was passed unanimously:

"This conference resolves that Rabbi Pinchus Feldman, dean and spiritual leader of the Yeshiva Centre, Sydney, be conferred the title "Patron of ORA" in recognition of his forty years of devoted and dedicated service to the Australian Jewish community and for his outstanding contribution to Torah-true Jewish education within the Australian Jewish community."

This is the first time in the history of the Organisation that such an honour has been conferred upon one of its members.

At the main banquet, guest speaker Michael Danby MP from Melbourne spoke about the new Federal Government and its warm relationship with Australian Jewry and Israel.

Mr Danby stressed the importance of the Rabbinate maintaining close contacts with Government officials, and applauded our Prime Minister Kevin Rudd's close friendship with Rabbi Feldman.

Rabbi Feldman was awarded the NSW Premier's Award for community service in 1995, The Order of Australia in 2002 and Honorary Life Presidency of the Rabbinical Council of NSW in 2006.

1. Siyum Harambam
Rabbi Yossi Feldman sheyichye made a siyum HaRambam on sefer Ahava and had a resoloution past encouraging all members to increase in daily torah shiurim for example Daf Hayomi, Chitas and Rambam etc'..

2. Incorrect Facts
Give credit where due.
It wasn't Rabbi Freilich that suggested it; it was Rabbi Eli Feldman, son of Rabbi Pinchus Feldman, the Head shilach.
The way it worked: everybody has the right to propose resloutions. When R' Eli proposed that his father be recognised, he needed someone to second it, which Rav Freilch did.
Rabbi Mottel Gutnick, president of ORA, didn't like the entire thing and said that it requires a constitution change, meaning a complete majority of two thirds is required.
A show of hands was called for and obviously all Feldmands raised their hand (including "Rabbonim" Shmuli Feldman, Daniel Kaye, Dovid Slavin whose association with ORA is in itself questionable).
They asked if anybody is against- and for obvious reasons no one wanted to oppose it publically and the resolution went through.
Of course, the Feldmans planned it all in advance.
The non-chabad rabbonim were very unhappy (refering to it later as "the mob"), but nothing could be done about it.
The main thing is that Sydney got more PR.
Have you noticed that in Chabad today only Sydney and Cyprus have constant news? PR addicts...
Within Sydney - only Yeshiva Centre gets coverage, although most mosdos in Sydney are not under the Yeshiva.
Have you ever heard on websites about the big anash school Kesser Torah where most of anash children get their education?
What about the succesful organisation for shiurim "Bina", celebrating now its tenth aniversarry?
Same with "Nefesh" under the leadership of Rabbi Moss which was mekreav hundreds of yidden?
What about the real chassidishe kehilla Tzemach Tzedek where most of anash daven? The most sucessful semicha program Tzemach Tzedek which produces authentic chassidishe bochurim like in Lubavitch?
Every other day there is news in Sydney -only from Yeshiva centre
Sadly, the websites don't reflect the reality on the ground...

As usual, you choose the cowardliness of firing shots from the comfort of anonymity.
If you were in the room at the time you would have seen me go over to Rabbi Freilich to initate a resolution. That was for a completely different resolution, encouraging Jews to go to Dinei Torah in the instance of disputes.
After a little bit of discussion with Rabbi Freilich and Rabbi Moshe Gutnick we decided not to go ahead with that resolution because a similar resolution was already made at the last conference, so there was no chidush in it.
A few minutes later Rabbi Freilich put forward the resolution honouring my father, which I was completely surprised about, albeit pleased.
I had nothing to do with that resolution whatsoever
If you call Rabbi Freilich on 0418 946 907 he will confirm to you that he conceived of, wrote and tabled that resolution.
Rabbi Freilich is not a Lubavitcher and had his differences with my father over the years but what he does have is a basic derech eretz and hakoras hatov for the enormous contribution that my father has made to Australian Jewry.
I can try and figure out who you are, but i am certain that you are a lubavitcher, not allied with the feldmans, which narrows it down to very, very few people in the room. Ia m quite certain that you are not Rabbi Braun because he does have a derech eretz for my father. so i think i know who you are and if i am correct you actually were a talmid in sydney yeshiva for a little while a number of years ago!!!
what an unbelievable display of kofuy tov and lack of basic derech eretz... u must be simply jealous that you weren't voted patron of ora....i would have expected better from you bichlal, particularly during the three weeks....!!!!
Sincerely,
Rabbi Eli Feldman
Sydney, Australia

4. To#2 Do you really beleive if you tell a lie enough times it becomes the truth?
To#2 Do you really beleive if you tell a lie enough times it becomes the truth? You wrote "Have you ever heard on websites about the big anash school Kesser Torah where most of anash children get their education?" for already a long long time ago most of anash children get their education in Yeshiva college, kid yourself not!

"What about the succesful organisation for shiurim "Bina", celebrating now its tenth aniversarry?
Same with "Nefesh" under the leadership of Rabbi Moss which was mekreav hundreds of yidden?" why only hundreds - millions!

"What about the real chassidishe kehilla Tzemach Tzedek where most of anash daven?"
who are you fooling? The pictures speak for themselves! Most of Anash have left Tzemach Tzedek and now daven in Yeshiva Centre!

"The most sucessful semicha program Tzemach Tzedek which produces authentic chassidishe bochurim like in Lubavitch?"

Authentic Chassidishe bochurim would NEVER COOPERATE with a war against the Rebbe and his shluchim! "Unzer ziburis" will always be better than your "Idis"! They do their very best and make the Rebbe proud!

"Every other day there is news in Sydney -only from Yeshiva centre"

That's because instead of crying "Sour grapes" and focusing in slinging mud we are busy in doing, and doing and doing more!! Maybe instead of harboring hatred "Sinas Chinam" and furthering your agendas through charachter assasination and defamation which is forbbiden by Torah law and Dina DeMalchusa, focus on Geula and Moshiach and how to bring him sooner through Ahavas Yisroel of course and good old fashioned Maaseh Bepoal, more and more activities! Than you'll realise that there is simply no time for this rubbish! LeChaim!
