New Hempstead, NY - Rabbi Expelled From Shul

Rockland County, New Hempstead, NY - Rabbi Mordechai Tendler, was suspended by the board of Kehillat New Hempstead, from the Rockland County synagogue he founded. Tendler, claiming a conspiracy to wreck his career and embarrass his family, refuses to acknowledge the suspension and has summoned 10 “insurgent” opponents to a special rabbinical court with the Union of Orthodox Rabbis. The KNH board has reportedly also frozen Tendler out of a shul bank account - a charge that Tendler also denies.


The board cited a lawsuit, declining membership, falling finances, Tendler’s “continuing lack of responsibility” and the board’s own inability to determine the “accuracy” of some of his statements. Tendler, who has publicly denounced the rabbinical council’s ruling and has moved to dismiss the “scurrilous” lawsuit, continues to lead the shul, said his brother, Hillel Tendler. “This is not a legal board . . . they’re nothing,” Hillel Tendler said, adding that the suspension letter “is void. It has no effect,” and that a majority of the shul has signed a petition backing his brother. Tendler opponents said at least a dozen people have left KNH.

No, its not Moshe Dovid Tendler of the metiza b'peh. Its his son Mordecai and this son Aaron of LA. Seems they are all involved in the shvantz

I actually think this R' tendler is the son of Moshe Tendler who was involved in the metziza b'peh issues. This R' tendler's shul is in New Hempstead while his father's is on West Maple in MOnsey

Yes this is. He claims that they are all embarassing his family. I dont think there is another person out there who has by his own actions embarrassed his family more than this so called "Rabbi" Tendler.
