Bais Yosef Bais Din- "The rest of the story"
The Bais Din of Bais Yosef is a division of yeshiva Bais Yosef Yeshiva. A division founded by Harav Hagaon Hagodal Rav Yakov chaim Jofen zt”l. of saintly memory who was president and dean of the Bais Yosef yeshiva and had final say over anything yeshiva related, upon his passing that authority passed to his son Hagaon Harav Reb Mordechai Joffen Shlita the present dean and Rosh Yeshiva. The Bais Din Bais Yosef belongs to Yeshiva Bais Yosef.
In or about 2009, Rav Joffen dismissed Rabbis Alt, Gurewitz and Landau from their positions at the Bais Din for incompetence, disloyalty and dishonesty to the yeshiva. The dismissal was upheld in arbitration by a Psak of the Bais Din Tzedek Umishpat that ruled; Rabbi Alt et al has absolutely no rights in Yeshiva Bais Yosef. They were prohibited from using the name Bais Din Bais Yosef or any similar name which belongs to the yeshiva, nor any bank account using Bais Yosef / Bais Din or similar name.
They are illegally continue using the name and misrepresenting themselves as being the Bais Din of the Bais Yosef yeshiva they are misappropriating the name and misleading the public who wrongly believe that they are still associated with the yeshiva. They are misappropriating the good name and good will of a yeshiva that's been in the Joffen family for 130 years
The yeshiva does not want anything to do with them and feels that their using the name is detrimental to the yeshiva and its name and reputation and dishonest as well, as Rav Mordechai Joffen is the 4th generation dean of the yeshiva, the leadership of the yeshiva has been in his family since 1895 and he has vigorously objected to Rabbi Alt and his cohorts who fraudulently and dishonestly are using and abusing the yeshivas good name to which they have no rights.
People who see the name Bais Din of Bais Yosef assume that the Bais din is associated with the yeshiva and carries on its illustrious tradition and exemplary standards.
When people are told that Rabbi Alt and his cohorts have nothing to do with the yeshiva, they are shocked and they feel that they were betrayed, misled etc. and state categorically that they would never have come to Rabbis Alt and his cohorts had they known they were no longer associated with the yeshiva, which is why Rabbi Alt insists on misappropriating the name Bais Yosef.
Rabbi Alt & his cohorts are fully aware that people only come to him because they believe that his Bais din is still associated with the Venerable yeshiva Bais Yosef. And the people don't know that the yeshiva dismissed him and his cohorts for cause some 9 years ago. Rav Joffen protested this misappropriation these past 9 years and Rabbi Alt & cohorts continue to illegally and fraudulently use the revered name Bais Yosef.
People come to the Bais Yosef Bais Din because it is associated with the yeshiva Bais Yosef and as a division of the yeshiva. It has earned the trust and respect of the community as a major citadel of Torah for 125 years, and a prominent reliable Bais Din with integrity.
Rabbi Alt knows very well that no one would come to his Bais Din if they knew of his illegal and fraudulent misappropriation of the name Bais Yosef. And that's why he stubbornly and dishonestly insists on using a name which he had absolutely no right to use.
