Are the facts right in this article? Are the panhandlers the windshield cleaning type, or are the panhandlers the Jews who are poor, who have a letter from a rabbi saying that they really are poor, and come to you right after minyan asking for contributions? Usually, the latter group has to get permission from the synagogue rabbi to come in and ask for assistance.

This is an easy article to write, having the wrong information.

Since it's coming from Shmarya's blog, I think it might be all bullshit.

It is all bullshit.

"Many of the tzedaka collectors are not unemployed people," one of them said, asking to remain anonymous as financials was Holtzberg's responsibility.

"What we have here is an open shul that anyone could come, spend the whole day here and collect for himself or an institution, and we are left paying the maintenance and electricity bills each month," he said.

He added that "what is being publicized is not honest."

Another gabbai, also asked not to be named, said: "They get free shelter, coffee, cake, a chance to raise money - $5 is not a percentage."
