Fraudulent Letters Circulated on Agudah Stationery

BROOKLYN -
(Chani Kurtz)

A letter on Agudath Israel stationery, posted Tuesday on telephone poles in some Jewish neighborhoods, related to the HPV vaccine, is fraudulent, Agudah says.

Last month, another fraudulent “Agudah” letter was circulated, this one electronically to media outlets, purportedly opposing Rep. Jerrold Nadler’s push to impeach President Donald Trump.

“These memos are COMPLETE FORGERIES and Agudath Israel disavows any association with them,” Agudah said in a statement Tuesday to media outlets and elected officials.

Any authentic letters are posted on Agudah.org and tweeted @AgudahNews.

“Any misuse of the Agudah name is illegal, and, of course, contrary to Halacha,” says the statement.

The fraudulent Nadler memo was sent to Hamodia last month by an activist who has also spoken at several anti-vaccine rallies.

It is not yet known who is behind the fraudulent HPV letter.
