Infamous Dormitory Dark After Electricity Cut

ConEdison workers cut the electricity Monday morning to 749 Eastern Parkway, the Yeshiva dorm infamous for lawlessness and total lack of oversight.

The move comes after the Yeshiva stopped paying the electric bill following months of violence perpetrated against Yeshiva students and threats against members of the administration.

749 serves as a haven for a large number of former students, whom either graduated and refuse to leave or those who were expelled and thrown out of the 1414 President Street dorm that seek free room and board at 749.

For over twenty years Yeshiva administration turned a blind eye to the goings and comings in the building, allowing the rampant lawlessness to run wild to the point where an exasperated community no longer believes anything would change.

“The absurdity is that the Yeshiva is forced to rent out basements and apartments for deserving students since 1414 simply does not have enough space” said a source in the Yeshiva administration.

749 houses approximately 100 people, the majority of whom the Yeshiva administration says are not enrolled in the Yeshiva.

Finally something is being done to dig out that terror cell which has been terrorizing this entire community for years and years and years!

What a true chanukah miracle!!

Let us only hope that none of the מחבלים come up and ‘help’ out by going against the yeshiva and turn those lights back on.

There has to be a Baal Habayis and that is the Yeshiva and they are the final say. Only Bochurim in the yeshiva are allowed to benefit from the ממון הקדש of the yeshiva and anyone else who does is poshut a ganev. And the same would go for anyone who ‘helps’ without the permission of the true owners.

The only solution is for a temporary donation moratorium, until the current hanholo agrees to appoint a board with power. (no pun intended)

#5 Comment By Mikveh On December 14, 2015 @ 11:22 pm

What will be with the Mikveh?
Who will take control?

#6 Comment By CHLEAKS.COM On December 14, 2015 @ 11:41 pm

Watch how some”hero” will come at the 7th hour to rescue these thugs.

It’s a shame, there are families that don’t have what to eat, yet they have no heroes, but these losers will have their “hero”.

Warning! If there will be a “hero”, he will be made a zero! Enough supporting for terrorist!

did u mean 11th hour?

#8 Comment By Chaim Z On December 14, 2015 @ 11:51 pm

We need to help these thugs and thieves continue in their evil ways. Let’s do a GoFundMe. Or maybe Mendel Hendel, Yaakov Spritzer and/or Moshe Rubashkin (who bails them out of jail) can help them, after all this is their ways.

It is only a matter of time before the DOB follows suit and deems the building inhabitable, gets a Vacate Order and secures all of the openings with plywood.


#10 Comment By Shlomo On December 15, 2015 @ 12:12 am

Can’t the bright yellow flags light up the building?
Or connect an extension cord to 770. Also I heard fire works real well for light.

#11 Comment By Abba On December 15, 2015 @ 2:22 am

Includes Mikva as well?

#12 Comment By from the deepest darkness can come the greatest light On December 15, 2015 @ 4:39 am

We have to turn the world over to good.

#13 Comment By A resident On December 15, 2015 @ 7:26 am

Eshel will come to their rescue because they charge guests a lot and drizin will pay for them as well.

#14 Comment By My Zun SB drizin?! On December 15, 2015 @ 7:58 am

if he wanted to pay he would/cold have done so by now ….

maybe he’s getting tired of them as well or his kids finally took charge…

So Hendel yesterday go see drizin in shul :(

#15 Comment By Hey On December 15, 2015 @ 5:27 pm

drazin does not know whats going on

#16 Comment By BH On December 15, 2015 @ 9:51 am

#17 Comment By tss2 On December 15, 2015 @ 9:54 am

how embarassing. worse than embarrassing.
this is not how true Lubavitchers behave.

#18 Comment By whoa On December 15, 2015 @ 10:08 am

everybody seems to be getting a rise out of hating, back down, feel sorry for them and their misguidance
do what has to be done and move on

the hate however is poison

#19 Comment By Hey On December 15, 2015 @ 5:30 pm

pick your poison

#20 Comment By Anonymous On December 15, 2015 @ 10:28 am

Because of threats to the administration ? Oh so now they wake up I guess it’s about time

#21 Comment By Results On December 15, 2015 @ 10:52 am

Because of this you can’t learn in 770 at night because they moved in and shut all the lights so they could sleep there

#22 Comment By CHLEAKS.COM On December 15, 2015 @ 2:18 pm

all of a sudden they are going to sleep on time (before 2am).

#23 Comment By Mendel On December 15, 2015 @ 11:17 am

all dogs have their day.

Mazel tov.

#24 Comment By Milhouse On December 15, 2015 @ 11:23 am

Whatever happened to the contracts the hanholoh used to make bochurim sign before they could move into 749?

#25 Comment By 20 milhouse On December 15, 2015 @ 12:07 pm

Ha ha ha ha good joke. You think anyone has control over these huligans??

#26 Comment By Oy! On December 15, 2015 @ 12:36 pm

Let’s make a charidy campaign to get their electricity back!
What else can we do to help?

#27 Comment By about time On December 15, 2015 @ 12:47 pm

next- start actually vetting those who want to come. keep out the troubemakers who really have no interest in learning.

#28 Comment By Hey On December 15, 2015 @ 5:29 pm

you mean like HSA does?

#29 Comment By Finally On December 15, 2015 @ 1:20 pm

Keep the lights off , revoke their visas put them on a slow boat down to China, get rid of the scum clean up the building it is a sore sight

#30 Comment By Friend On December 15, 2015 @ 1:53 pm

Regardless of what guise they presented themselves in Crown Heights, they are criminals, who physically hurt innocent bochurim, the hanhalah, and their families.

Expel them – not from yeshiva – that doesn’t seem to have any effect – from the USA. They have student visas and have violated the legal terms. America will not give safe harbor to criminals.
Painful to say that about Jewish boys, but what about the victims? Can’t the tables be turned and have Rabbanim, askanim, etc.. take them to JFK- put them on the list of terrorists who cannot reenter.

#31 Comment By A resident On December 15, 2015 @ 3:42 pm

Let Mendel Handel take them to eshel

#32 Comment By Yoel’s visit to Belz On December 15, 2015 @ 5:22 pm

Maybe Yoel can use his influence with Belz and get them a building in Belz

#33 Comment By A resident On December 15, 2015 @ 6:03 pm

Mendel hendel should take them to his hotel

#34 Comment By alias jack smith On December 15, 2015 @ 6:13 pm

send them back to israel and put them on the terrorist no fly list!!

#35 Comment By disgusted! On December 15, 2015 @ 9:46 pm

Excuse my ignorance but if these boys were chucked out how dare anyone allow them to room and board there???? Whoever is there illegally should be arrested and i promise u if this would have happened there would have been no violence. I send my son to yeshiva thinking that he will be safe. It didnt occur to me that when i send my son from out of town to 770 yeshiva i am sending him to a zoo.
Kaan tziva Hashem es Habrocha
This is absolutely ludicrous and if it doesnt stop then i myself will maaser on them and have the yeshiva closed down

#36 Comment By Milhouse On December 16, 2015 @ 1:30 pm

The hanholoh has not controlled 749 for many years. The inmates took over the asylum, and control the building themselves. They don’t just allow people to stay there who are not students of the yeshivah — they built a mikveh in the basement, completely without any permission from the building’s owner!

#37 Comment By Zalmy Schapiro On December 15, 2015 @ 10:09 pm

wow so that means we have to prepare for Moshaich?

#38 Comment By יעבץ On December 19, 2015 @ 5:56 pm

זה כל כך מדהים איך דוקא המשיחסטים מוזנחים ונראים תמיד בפיזור וחוסר דר בזמנים ולימוד..
הגיע הזמן להחזיר הכבוד לליובאוויטש!
