STATEMENT FROM THE DIRECTORS OF LUBAVITCH CENTRE CONCERNING RABBI YACOV SIMMONDS

February 26, 2018

The Directors of Lubavitch Centre, are responding to the news that Rabbi Yacov Simmonds, a former employee, has been charged with various criminal offences.

 

We have been advised that these charges relate to matters that allegedly occurred prior to Rabbi Simmonds’ engagement with the centre.

 

The matter was brought to our attention in January 2016 after which the centre concluded an agreement to terminate Rabbi Simmonds’ employment.

 

Although we are not at liberty to discuss the charges against Rabbi Simmonds, Rabbi Avrohom Altein would be prepared to respond to any questions/concerns you might have. Rabbi Altein may be reached by calling 204-339-8737 ext 201.

 

For the Directors: 
Rocky Kravetsky, Secretary
Phone: 204-299-6866
