Thousands attended a Simchas Bais Hashoeva on Motzie Shabbos, with the participation of Shuvu Bonim community leader Rabbi Eliezer Berland.

Rabbi Berland has just been released from house arrest, the result of a conviction for assault.

As YWN reported, Rabbi Berland was also granted temporary parole to enable him to travel to Uman for Rosh Hashana at R’ Nachman’s kever.

There is an ongoing civil suit against the Rabbi, brought by several of his alleged victims.

  1. Its disgusting that so many yidden somehow “celebrate” this serial abuser who has been convicted of assault on women. At a time we thought that the frum tzibur and its leading rabbonim and askanim were moving forward to rid the tzibur of these individuals, there are still some who will turn a blind eye just as we’ve seen here in the U.S. in recent days for people in power. His travelling circus running away from the police from country to country created a nonstop image of chilul hashem around the world.

  2. Dear DrYidd, if you have not noticed yet YWN is completely biased in this case & makes sure not to say “anything bad about poor darling Berland”. I’m disgusted that with great Kavod they post about this pedophile being out freely to celebrate simchas beis hashoeva with his people.

  3. and he’s free in the same community as his victims and yet his followers still think he’s a big “tzaddik”.Also this sukkah was built in the street ,completely blocking it, in Jerusalem with loud music playing all night— I wonder why the city turns a blind eye to everything this guy does.

  4. We turn a blind eye to Breslov despite being clearly warned by the Gedolim of the previous generations. They warned us not to allow these ideas into our community. We failed this poor fellow, may he be sent a Refuah Shlema is fruit of our inaction.

  5. We turn a blind eye to Breslov despite being clearly warned by the Gedolim of the previous generations. They warned us not to allow these ideas into our community. We failed this poor fellow, may he be sent a Refuah Shlema is fruit of our inaction. What he admitted doing is part of his unfortunate sickness. Instead of making excuses for him his followers should get him some mental help because he doesn’t look well. They we should ban all American Yeshivas in EY from learning these Sefarim and going to Uman. We have so few Beni Torah why get allow them to get involved in a destructive cult. Oh the guy who cuts his hair in Uman and now Frum. That doesn’t mean that you can change the Torah to get converts. We have all had enough of them. It’s time to stop it and for us to collective say – we have had enough of Dead Rebbe’s and making Chasidus into a mockery.
