Four years after the passing of Harav Aharon Yaakov Schwei, the long awaited election for the third rov of Crown Heights community, might finally be underway.
On Tuesday evening, Netzigim from Crown Heights shuls met as the first step towards arranging elections for new directors of Crown Heights Jewish Community Council and Vaad Hakohol.
The Vaad Hakohol last held elections in 5769 when current members of the vaad hakohol Zaki Tamir, Yossi Hackner and Fishel Brownstein were elected to a three year term.
According to unconfirmed reports, plans are being finalized to hold an election later this year after the yomtov of shavuos. A previous attempt to hold election in 5781 ended in failure.
Anash.org has exclusively learned that under the current scheme, plans are being finalized to hold a community-wide election for a third rov of Crown Heights, immediately following the vaad hakohol elections. Currently, the Beis Din is being led by Harav Avorhom Osdoba and Harav Yosef Braun.
The Crown Heights community has been left without a third rov after the tragic passing of Harav Aharon Yaakov Schwei on Lamed Nissan 5780. Harav Schwei joined the beis din after the passing of Harav Yehuda Kalman Marlow.
