JUST IN: DOCUMENT: Dozens of Rabbonim in Lakewood have signed a letter screaming against those who are attempting to re-investigate the river defining Lakewood, thereby questioning the validity of hundreds of Gittin written in Lakewood over the years. The letter, which was signed by the leading Rabbonim of Lakewood, was signed about two months ago sources say, but was only released today.
The letter was signed after a meeting took place in Brooklyn, where Rabbi Knopfler asked Rabbonim – including Rabbonim which were apparently unaware of the fact that it was against many esteemed Rabbonim – to open an investigation into the issue, which could have resulted in catastrophic situations, Rabbonim say.
The issue discussed at that meeting, was which river defines Lakewood, a mandatory requirement for every Get written. TLS/News Breakers.
