A JTS Pashkevil
My friend Michael Rose, the owner of the Judaica Book Centre in Israel (if you would like to order some books email him at jbc123-at-bezeqint-net), emailed me the a picture of a JTS pashkevil that he saw in one of the ultra-Orthodox neighborhoods in Beit Shemesh. Apparently, JTS gave permission to Mechon Rosh Pina to publish a manuscript from their collection, Rabbi Shemaryah Brandris’s commentary on the Shulḥan Arukh, Rosh Pina. Morasha le-Hanḥil has apparently published in their edition of the Shulḥan Arukh Brandris’s commentary without JTS’s permission. The pashkevil calls upon people not to use the Morasha le-Hanḥil edition of the Shulḥan Arukh since part of it is stolen property.
The legal battle about this publication has been going on for a number of years (see here), and this isn’t the first pashkevil relating to this matter.
Update: I just got around to looking at Twitter now and I see that Adderabbi was already on the JTS Pashkevi.
