Suffern, NY - Rabbi Leib Tropper’s response to recent allegations has been delayed until now in deference to his legal counsel.
Events of recent weeks have caused Rabbi Tropper great anguish, in particular given his recognition that the high standard of ethics in the Jewish community is one of its most treasured principles.
He wishes to express his regret for the turmoil caused by his departure from the Eternal Jewish Family organization and for what has appeared to be conduct not within our significant laws of modesty. Rabbi Tropper now looks forward to a return to both his studies and time with his loving family, as well as to personal introspection. He thanks those outside his closest circle of friends for respecting his privacy.
these are not allegations, these are 100% fact and on tape for doros to come.
"caused by his departure from the Eternal Jewish Family organization"
so it seems he is just sorry that he had to leave, and not for his reprehensible behaviour.
"for what has appeared to be conduct not within our significant laws of modesty"
Hello? who are we kidding here, did he walk around town in a shirt that was too tight, or shorts? That would be him not keeping up with laws of modesty.
Take it a step further, was he caught watching pornography or in a simple affair? No much worse, he was caught red handed extorting sexual favors for himself and others from potential converts in return for conversions.
Wake up and smell the Coffee Hanhollah of Kol Yaakov, he has stepped down from EJF he should do the same thing for allother positions of power that he has over people interested in Judaism.
