Solomon Dwek disowned by father...
Oof. That's GOTTA sting! Apparently, according to the article, Rabbi Yisrael Dwek, the moser's father, has publicly disowned his son on Shabbos:
A lot of people might like to wring his neck, but the sleazy real-estate mogul who ratted out everyone from politicians to rabbis in a massive corruption case is apparently already as good as dead to his father.Way to go, Rabbi Dwek.
Israel Dwek -- the father of Solomon "Shlomo" Dwek, who helped the feds nail three New Jersey mayors and several rabbis in Brooklyn last week -- plans to sit shiva for his son because he is so disgusted with his turning on other Jews, reported the Web site PolitickerNJ.com.
Shiva is the traditional Jewish mourning period held after a family member dies.
The father -- citing "the Talmudic Law of Moser that prohibits a Jew from informing on another Jew to a non-Jew" -- renounced his son from the pulpit at his synagogue in Deal, NJ, on Saturday, the site said.
Israel Dwek is a revered leader of the Sephardic Jewish community in the wealthy enclave.
Oh. And Ha'Makom Yenacham Otcha B'Toch Sh'ar Aveilei Tzion V'Yerushalayim. May you and your know only good things from now on and may you and your family be comforted among the mourners of Tzion and Yerushalayim.
UPDATE: According to a reader, this story is not true. According to VIN who researched the story, he denounced moserim from the pulpit but no more than that.
