Is Yosef Kolko supported by Rav Simcha Bunim Cohen?
The new appeal ad for Yosef Kolko contains two changes from the previous appeal ad.
1) A citation from the Rambam and
2) the use of Rav Simcha Bunim's shul as a conduit for donations. The Rambam (Hilchos Rotzeach1: 14-16) is not obviously not applicable because it applies to a victim not the perpetrator! However the involvement of Cong. Ateres Yeshaya is disturbing.
