No peace between Toldot Aharon and Toldot Avraham Yitzchak


The haredi site “Kikar Shabbat” is reporting about another hostile incident between the Toldot Aharon and its split – off, the Toldot Avraham Yitzchak.  Tonight,  Rebbe Shmuel Yaakov Kahn is marrying off his granddaughter to a grandson of Rabbi Me’ir Brandsdorfer z”l. Rabbi Aharon Samet, a leading member of the Toldot Aharon, came to the wedding but got attacked. Before the Chuppah was taking place, Samet was told to leave the event. Despite the incident, the Toldot Aharon Rebbe David Kahn participated in the Simche and was dancing. 

I got hold of countless material from Toldot Aharon and the Edah Charedit but it takes time writing about it. Fortunately, I bought the Rebbe Aharon Roth book “Shomer Emunim”. My little “treasure” is an anonymous booklet from the Toldot Avraham Yitzchak how their Rebbe got cheated and how leading Toldot Aharon members forged the will of the former Rebbe Avraham Yitzchak Kahn (the father of Shmuel Yaakov and David Kahn). Maybe anyone has an idea where I can buy the Toldot Aharon booklet on the will of their former Rebbe claiming that no one was forging anything.

    Are the TAY still members of the Eidah HaCharedis? It looks like everybody within the Eidah HaCharedis are no longer in love with them.

    Yes, they are although I assume that Rebbe Shmuel Yaakov would like to leave. Also because some money from the Israeli government would help him building his new center outside of Mea Shearim. But I suppose he is not that free doing whatever he likes. First due to the Sheine Yidden and, secondly, to the Edah pressure.
