Unfortunately, in recent days, a number of letters have been circulating in the name of the Beis Din of Crown Heights regarding sensitive issues that are taking place in the Lubavitch community at this time.
Chabadinfo.com has investigated and found out that these letters are forged.
It is also worth noting that the letter style of the forger is nonrealistic, it is not the style of writing that the Beis Din uses when they publish a letter. Additionally, letters that the Rabbonim write to the public are published on the website crownheightsconnect.com. Lastly, when the Rabbonim write letters to private people, those letters do not start circulating all over every WhatsApp group.
Obviously, it is an Aveira Min-Hatorah to do such a terrible thing and it is also against federal law to forge documents in someone else’s name.
Efforts are being made to prove the identity of the forger (who is already known to those involved) who is taking advantage of such a turbulent time to advance his own agenda.
It should be known that the main reason that all these letters are being forged right now is to try break up the wave of Achdus that is currently going through Lubavitch, so by forging these divisive letters, he is trying to sow Machlokes in the Lubavitch community worldwide.
Here is another example of forgery aimed at making Machlokes among Chassidim:
The New York Post published a large Photo of Chassidim from other communities and accusing them of spreading the coronavirus (which itself is extremely Anti-Semitic). That photo was exchanged with a photo of the Bochurim davening in the courtyard of 770 with the same caption, just to spark up more “action” in Lubavitch.
