Disgusting.

Itís also גניבת דעת and thus מצוה הבאה בעבירה

Usually I ignore emails that donít interest me. But this one gets me to vindictively slam the spam button, if we all did that these people (or whomever is sending emails on their behalf, and likely on behalf of 1000 other unsolicited senders) gets shut down.

Is this a real thing?  I thought it was a joke, like who would build a yeshiva in a cemetery?  But I see they were around last year, with a worrisome requirement to join:  Those who wish to join and be registered should contact the following email address: Y033080222@gmail.com, with the subject line: המשרה "Registration" and your ID or passport number.

And Shlomo Pinsky is seeking funds for them, but says that's not his real name:

Are these malicious thieves? Or just incompetent fund-raisers?
