And then there were five

Posted on 6 April, 2011 by

As people have heard and was mentioned on this blog, Mulik Gurewicz has resigned from the Vaad Ruchni. The following note was sent out:

We wish to inform the community that Mr. Shmuel Gurewicz has, for personal reasons, resigned from the Vaad Ruchni, please click here for his letter of resignation. We have reluctantly and with regret, accepted his resignation and we thank him for his participation to date and wish him Hatzlocho Rabbo and Kol Tuv for the future.

With best wishes for Chag HaPesach Kosher Vesameach.

Rabbi A. Glick
On behalf of the Vaad Ruchni


The official reason is “personal reasons”: who is anyone fooling? Mulik made it clear to many people that he was dissatisfied with some of the decisions of the Va’ad. Does anyone expect us to believe he has resigned to “spend more time with his family”? It seemed like he was the only voice of reason there.

What does the Va’ad Ruchni do anyway? Dig up old letters from Rabbi Groner OBM? What power do they have? Now that there is a majority of Groner relatives, will anything change?
