Tropper's admission of guilt and resignation - A blow by blow

The progression of events have been as follows:

Last Tuesday afternoon, leading Rabbinic figures in Monsey met. That meeting was put together by Rabbi Dovid Ribiat and was chaired by one of the most senior Roshei Yeshiva in Monsey, HaGaon HaRav Moshe Green Shlita, Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshiva D’Monsey.

Others present at that Tuesday meeting included Rav Shlomo Breslauer Shlita, Rav of Beis Tefillah; Rav Yisroel Dovid Schlesinger, of K’hal Shaarei Tefillah; Rav Chaim Schabes the Morah D’Asra of Knesses Yisroel in New Hempstead; Rav Shlomo Zalman Kaufman, Dayan of the Beis Horaah Beis Din and Rav Ben Tzion Kokis, Rav of K’hal Zichron Mordechai in South Monsey.

The idea was to have an expanded meeting on Sunday in Yeshiva Beis Mikreh of Monsey. There, the Rabbonim were to sign this Kol Koreh below.

The Kol Koreh would proclaim Tropper a menuval and demand of Tropper to resign all his posts and to leave Monsey. A messenger of the Rabbonim, Rabbi Yehuda Weissler, was dispatched to summon Tropper and to have him make himself available at 10:30 PM. Rabbi Weissler got hold of Tropper by phone and informed him of what the Rabbonim wanted.

In the mean time, one of the Rabbonim who attended the first meeting, Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Schlesinger, had been having several private meetings with Leib Tropper, and Rabbi Schlesinger began trying to forestall the consequences of severe Rabbinic censure on Tropper and to save Tropper from the embarrassment of having the Kol Koreh publicized.

At this point, rumours were swirling that the Tropper Sex Video tape were made public on the internet.

Rabbi Schlesinger, prevailed upon Tropper to sign two agreements at the eleventh hour one to the Hanholah of Kol Yaakov

Interestingly Tropper gets to keep all the money that Kol Yaakov has which includes over 10 million given by Tom Kaplan and Guma Aguir.

And another one similar to the one above, in addition to his promising to leave Monsey,

in which he would both step down and agree to a number of the demands of the Rabbis.

The agreement that Tropper signed began, “In not fulfilling the requirement of Shulchan Aruch that a leader be “Pirko No’eh”, the undersigned is relinquishing his position..” It further stated that he releases all rights and severs any connection he has to his former Yeshiva in Monsey and withdraws forthwith as a trustee of the organization.

Tropper also agreed to move out of Monsey within a few months.

And appointed Rav Aharon Schechter the Rosh Yeshiva of Chaim Berlin and Reb Elya Ber Wachtfogel and Rabbi Dovid Wolpin to be in charge of picking a new Rosh Yeshiva.

Looks like at the end of the day Tropper get off with a slap on the wrist and millions of dollars, he is now free to settle in any other Jewish community.

Rabbi Leib Tropper crawls back from under the rock he came from

Rabbi Leib Tropper has finally conceded to Monsey Rabbonim and agreed to have no connection to his Yeshiva. He has also agreed to leave Monsey, NY within 3 months.

Leib Tropper Scandal Finally Put to Rest

We here at Troppergate.com attribute his final demise and downfall to the following top 5 list.

5. A few good Rabbi's who despite the odds and his backing of Gedolei Hador, would come out againts him, this includes Rabbi Dunner in London and Rav Moshe Sternbuch in Israel. Kudos also go to the Monsey Rabbonim who finally said enough is enough.

4. The audio tapes and finally video tape which was released by Troppergate.com on Sunday, and was announced as "the nail in the coffin" to Tropper by the Monsey Beis Din.

3. Rabbi Tropper's enemies and those he has wronged in the past, like Guma Agiur and Rabbonim and ex talmiddim who he had wronged. They all worked behind the scenes to make sure Tropper's reign of terror would be halted. This also includes newspapers and blogs who relentlessly worked over the years, around the clock to keep an eye on Tropper and report the news when everyone one else was silent.

A mini top 5 list for these blogs are

5. The Unorthodox Jew
4. Tooting our own horn, Troppergate.com
3. Five Towns Jewish Times and Tablet Magazine.
2. Daattorah.blogspot.com
1. FailedMessiah.com who helped break the story and had exclusive interviews with Orand.

2. Shannon Orand, who though at first participated in some of Tropper's lurid acts, had the courage to break free from his control and expose him for the monster that he is.

1. and the #1 reason for Tropper's demise was Rabbi Leibish Tropper own big ego that had finally caught up with him. He thought he was untouchable because he had all the major Rabbonim backing him up, that he could act like Zimri and claim the reward of Pinchas.

Lesson of the day Kids:

It is too bad that it took 30 years for him to have his day.

We mourn all the talmiddim who went off the derech and could have been in a better place if not for Tropper.

The Rabbi Leib Tropper "Sex" Tape !!!!!!!

Hat Tip: Hanavon:

Here we have concise visual evidence, not just audio evidence that Tropper is a menuval. Ofcourse Tropper chassidim, the same pea brains who say that the audio tapes were not really Tropper but just fancy editing of Tropper's voice, will say that this is not Tropper and his wife, but actors with make up, made up to look exactly like them and directed by Steven Spielberg. As if someone would care to go to those lengths, or they will say that Tropper was just giving them a medical check up, or that they were all just coming back from the pool. It will not matter if Tropper himself climbs up on the Kol Yaakov yeshiva in Monsey and shouts out that he is guilty, they will just say it is not really Tropper.

For those of you who are not so naive, and know Tropper you can easily see that this is the Rabbi Leib Tropper "Sex" Video. Depicting Tropper and his deviant escapades in a hotel with 2 woman. It is not the best quality, but their is no mistaking Tropper and his fat belly, at the video start you see Tropper shirtless putting his underwear back on and then , getting his oversized pants and trademark suspenders back on, Thus video only shows AFTER footage of his wife and another woman finishing up whatever it is they did in bed, Rabbi Tropper is seen getting dressed and kissing this other woman who is not his wife many times at the end he puts his wallet and cell phone back in his pants.

And now without further ado..

Oh and by the way, even Rebbitzen Leba Tropper is caught on this tape below discussing this tape, and the other woman from Texas S.O. admits that this is her in the tape.

At the time S.O. the woman from Texas was playing dumb on the phone conversation, because she was trying to collect evidence againts Tropper, because she was trying to escape his grasp. He wanted her to have sex with several men and she did not want to. She was taping him to show the tapes to Rabbonim who head EJF so that they would believe her over Rabbi Tropper and so that her geirus would not be compromised.

This is Leba in a conversation with S.O. discussing this tape, and worried that people can pick them all out.

‘LEBA TROPPER’: It certainly, people who know you and people who know Leib could pick us out.

UPDATE: We contacted Rabbi Tropper's camp, and it looks like the official story that Tropper and his wife cooked up to cover up for this is that though it looks like it is them in the video, that this is in fact not them, and it is actors posing as them.

Purim comes in early this year !!!Rabbi Leib Tropper the Menuval steps down!

Menuval Tropper has finally had some sense knocked into his head and fearing a full scale rebuke by Monsey Rabbi's and a possible jail sentence as well as threats of a new tape being released, he has thrown in the towel, hung up his black hat and resigned from Horizons and Kol Yaakov.

He told students at Kol Yaakov this today at 9:15 AM.

They are now in the process of looking for a new Rosh Yeshiva, Rabbi Dovid Stefansky will likely be named to take over.
