Members at a Special General Meeting approved the establishment of a Trust to be called “Badatz Melbourne” which will govern the new Melbourne Beth Din for Civil and Commercial Disputes. A set of policies and procedures has been developed in conjunction with senior lawyers, and local and international Dayanim.

All cases heard by the Beth Din will be in full compliance with the Arbitration Act and its awards will be enforceable (if necessary) in the secular courts.

Rabbi Meir Shlomo Kluwgant, President of the RCV, said “another crucial milestone has been achieved towards the creation of a much needed service for the Jewish community of Victoria.

We look forward to providing a dispute resolution service which will be respected, effective, affordable, and most importantly in accordance with Jewish and Australian law.”

    Another Chabad disaster to rip off the Community. I would suggest that anyone considering this should first make sure that the outstanding cases against Melbourne Beth Din first be settled appropriately, which to date hasnt happened.
