  3. Title: Protest of defamation
    Author: Anonymous,

    I would like to protest R' Rakefet's charecterization of a Rosh Yeshiva and Gaon Olam who spread so much Torah and gave so much tzdaka and did so much chesed in his lifetime as a "...50 percent gangster". The Gemara [ברכות י"ט] says " אמר רבי יהושע בן לוי כל המספר אחר מטתן של תלמידי חכמים נופל בגיהנם". This is even if what the person is saying is true. Instead of defaming the Rosh Yeshiva, R' Rakefet should instead learn and teach his [i.e. the Rosh Yeshiva's] tremendously deep Torah. It is disgraceful to talk about someone when all one knows are the shadier sides without knowing the content of his Torah genius. 

    Rav Michel Zilber who is a well known Charedi Israeli Gadol said after the passing of this RY [who was his chavrusa] "I am saying of front of a sefer Torah that this man was a Tzadik."
