The "rabbi" of YOUNG ISRAEL Aish of Las Vegas is excommunicated by Bais Din yet he bans a WIDOW from davening in "his" Young Israel?
Please read older posts in this blog for details of of how YOUNG ISRAEL Aish of Las Vegas violates the decrees of Rabbeinu Gershom explained here and other reasons the Delegates & leadership of National Council of YOUNG ISRAEL must remove this blight on its legacy before they have their own Freundel-level scandal.
If this is Halacha regarding a private shul, HOW DARE A YOUNG ISRAEL SYNAGOGUE BAN A WIDOW OR ANYONE ELSE WHO IS NOT EXCOMMUNICATED FROM DAVENING IN A PUBLIC BRANCH OF YOUNG ISRAEL?!
There are many Kosher-style eateries around the country that appear kosher. That's the problem. They are only kosher in appearance but not in reality. They may get their meats from a kosher supplier but then they cook it on Shabbos. In most cases frum people know to avoid such places because they lack any hechsher. But what happens in a case where the place has a name like Young Israel of Las Vegas that did serve food cooked on Shabbos to the congregation and guests at the direct instruction of the "rabbi" who said at the time "just serve it-no one will know about it".
I am providing the paragraph and a link to the document where this incident is mentioned in context: https://docs.google.com/document/d/12fj4BypAXYQBms2HmVCnJrt0lKs-GA4zIaSSGl11RVQ/edit
On Shabbos my husband went into the shul kitchen as they were preparing for a kiddush and noticed that they were mixing mocha mix in hot noodles...clearly Bishul. My husband called in Mr. Wyne and this was his response "just serve it-no one will know about it". There were witnesses to this. After this incident my husband approached Mr. Wyne privately with a Mishna Brurah and was told "just put that book away!".
The same applies to their so called eruv. Oh yes, the lechai'in and lintels of wire are there. But the ochel is in an inaccessible place and the "owner" has proven he will be angry if it is eaten by those he hates and bars from "his" YOUNG ISRAEL synagogue. YOUNG ISRAEL of Las Vegas only "appears" to have an eruv. But in reality its eruv is as kosher as those kosher-style restaurants that cook on Shabbos.
It also needs to be remembered that since the leader of the synagogue is excommunicated, it is not possible to enter "his" premises and still follow the Halachos of Shulchan Aruch, Yoreh Deah section 334 as stated on the seruv issued by Bais Din. Please see earlier posts in this blog for images of the seruv.
Shulchan Aruch/Orach Chaim/366:5 It must be the case that no one will get angry if his friend eats his eruv.
If he will get angry, it is not an eruv. Because of this, one should be careful not to makean eruv with something made for Shabbat.סעיף ה - צריך שלא יקפיד שום אחדמהם על ערובו אם יאכלנו חברו, ואםמקפיד אינו ערוב, לכך צריך לזהר שלאלערב בדבר שתקן לצרך השבת.
Shulchan Aruch/Orach Chaim/394:3 If [the eruv] was placed in a tower, it was locked inside, the key waslost before it got dark, and it is impossible to remove the eruv without doing definitework at twilight, it is as if it is lost and not an eruv, because it is impossible to eat it.סעיף ג - נתנו במגדל ונעל בפניו ואבדהמפתח קדם שחשכה, אם אי אפשרלהוציא הערוב אלא אם כן עשה מלאכהגמורה בין השמשות, הרי זה כמי שאבדואינו ערוב, שהרי אי אפשר לאכלו
