S.I. Shul Wins $1M Court Battle Against Kars4Kids Group | Jewish Week

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court of the State of New York granted permission to the Young Israel of Eltingville, a small 40-year-old Modern Orthodox congregation, to vacate an arbitration award from a religious court stipulating that the synagogue owes Oorah, the Lakewood, N.J.-based outreach organization that operates Kars4Kids, $1 million. The arbitration award, had it been enforced, would likely have forced the congregation to foreclose on its building and surrender all of its assets to Oorah.

“We were pleased with the court’s decision, which recognized that even if Mr. Stadler were president, he did not have authority to unilaterally act, without approval of the board of directors,” the synagogue’s attorney, Solomon Rubin, told The Jewish Week in an email.
