Amshinover Rebbe, enabler of sexual predator - Shlomo Carlebach
Rabbi Yaakov Aryeh Milikowsky who is also known as "The Amshinov Rebbe" has been quoted as believing that Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach was the
"Pillar of Prayer", even though there was a rabbinic decree created by Rabbi Moshe Feinstein banning Carlebach's music as a way of disciplining him for his sexual assaults against women. Milikowsky chose to ignore the ruling that it was believed that his friend, Shlomo Carlebach was a serial sexual predator.
