Mazel Tov to Rabbi Yossi Braun upon his elevation to the Beth Din of Crown Heights

From here.
As expected, Rav Y Braun has been declared the winner of the ballot for the 3rd position on the Beth Din of Crown Heights. Sydney Jewry are proud that this up-and-coming Rav and Posek "cut his teeth" in their midst, first as a bochur in Rabbi Feldman's Yeshiva Gedola and for the past decade or so as a Rav and educator to many.

AJN Watch joins Australia's frum communities - of all stripes - in wishing Rabbi Braun הצלחה רבה in all his endeavours to advance Torah and Yiddishkeit להגדיל תורה ולהאדירה in Crown Heights and the Chabad community worldwide. חזק ואמץ!

  1. This was far from expected, and was in fact a mini-referendum on the current "status" of the Rebbe. Braun had massive financial support from the meshichist faction (which thrives in Crown Heights Brooklyn, as we understand it does in Australia.)

    His opponent, an elderly experienced local Dayan (who is also a qualified mediator) was "controversial" because he took a brave stand against messianism in Lubavitch after the passing of the Rebbe. He did not succeed then, and suffered for it once again, now, although the votes indicate a swing against messianism.
