Since being arrested Rebbehas since delivered numerous public speeches about the importance of doing business and running Mosdos legally.
His major speech in English this past summer in front of thousands of people at an Asifa in the Ohr Hachayim Viznitz Hall, in Boro Park, focusing on the timeless (but also all too timely) theme of “Vi’asisa hayashar vi’hatov.” In the speech the rebbe said “We have learned things the hard way”, and urged everyone to follow the law.

At that massive gathering of people, Attorney Benjamin Brafman started his speech by saying “I want to tell the Spinka Rebbe with great kavod, and this is from my heart, – It took an incredible amount of Gevurah (strength) for the Spinka Rebbe to stand up here and address this audience, and I hope by you doing this tonight it serves as a zechus in the Tzaar (pain) of what you are currently going through; because I think you’ve earned a great deal of respect by appearing here tonight and trying to address the current problems.”
This past September, scores of Admorim, Roshei Yeshiva and Rabbonim attended an emergency meeting at the request of the Spinka Rebbe Shlita.
The closed door meeting addressed the initiation of a series of workshops, educational seminars and other related programs to inform and educate community schools and other non-profits regarding applicable law and the mass dissemination of the Spinka developed compliance program.
The Spinka Rebbe as well as other speakers including Attorneys and Rabbonim addressed the need for all of the assembled participantsto urge their administrators and constituents to attend and warmly embrace the upcoming educational program schedule that is projected to span the next few years.
The message imparted to the participants was that the upcoming programs would help non profits to initiate, further develop, update, or expand their current compliance programs, as well as help the organizations keep abreast of current developments in the proper administration of not for profit organizations.
In addition, the Spinka Rebbe once again stressed the importance of compliance.
