It has been alleged in court documents that Rabbi David and Judy Wax from Lakewood, New Jeresy have decided that it is permissible to violate the laws of America to further their twisted ideologies that allows for a coerced get, when in fact the Torah does not allow it under those circumstances. Furthermore, his alleged attempted extortion of $100,000 from Yisroel Meir Briskman's father is another Torah violation. This rabbinic couple is a disgrace to society, and a disgrace to the Jewish religion. We condemn their actions, as well as all other corrupted rabbis who follow this principle of coercion and extortion schemes, including the Israeli Rabbinate who support these types of actions . See and
Here is the actual complained filed in court by the FBI against David and Judy Wax.
We are hopeful that their trial will convict them and that the FBI will further their investigations into other Rabbis across the USA,including ORA ,, who employ similar tactics or may have been connected to this extortion scheme.Many Chareidi Rabbis in Israel have nullified this extorted Get from Yisroel Meir Briskman as seen here.
The Rabbis who perpetrate these acts, or support this behavior, as well as the general population who remains silent while this sinful acts occur, are responsible for the tragic events that occur to the Jewish people, whether to individuals or to the nation as a whole. This is a clear statement said in the Talmud in Tractate Shabbos, Daf 139A by Rabbi Yossi Ben Elisha.
