Many feel that the
cardiologist has
not been given full
dertails.

the cardiologist had not been
given full access to details of
the rebbe's care or condition,
according to Mr. Yanover.
"During the two months
the aspirin was interrupted,
(the) accusation (against
Rabbi Groner) is there was a
great deal of sabotage going
on with Weiss, who had been
a chief figure" in the rebbe's
medical care since 1977, said
Mr. Yanover.
Those who side with Rabbi
Krinsky say that the doctor
"would come in and Groner
would say that the rebbe had
no time for him now."
In an effort to ensure that
the rebbe gets the proper
medical treatment, a promi-
nent and authoritative
group of Lubavitcher rabbis
decreed, in mid-September,
that another individual
would be assigned to coor-
dinate all contact anyone

—including the secretaries
— has with the rebbe.
A physician was assigned
to be the coordinator, and
Rabbi Groner and Rabbi
Krinsky both reportedly
agreed to the new arrange-
ment, which dramatically
broke from the way things
have always been done
among the secretaries.
But the latest wrinkle, ac-
cording to the Krinsky
camp, is that Rabbi Groner
has tried to subvert the new
arrangement by secretly
videotaping Rabbi Schneer-
son as Rabbi Groner posed a
series of questions to the
rebbe, said Mr. Yanover.
Rabbi Groner has also re-
portedly established an in-
dependent fund- raising
effort named Kupat Rab-
benu, or "Our Rabbi's
Fund," in an attempt to cir-
cumvent 770 Eastern
Parkway, the Lubavitch
headquarters where Rabbi
Krinsky oversees the collec-
tion and dispensation of do-
nations. ❑

Defense Official
Meets Rabin

Jerusalem (JTA) — U.S.
Defense Undersecretary
Frank Wisner has met with
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Rabin and leaders of the
security establishment
about U.S.-Israel military
cooperation and military
challenges in the region.
Mr. Wisner is the highest-
ranking Pentagon official to
visit Israel since the Clinton
administration took office.
Last week's visit came at a
time when the United States
is reviewing its defense
capabilities with an eye
toward possible reductions.
Mr. Wisner's visit is being
seen here as a gesture of con-
tinuing U.S. military sup-
port for Israel and was not
expected to produce new
agreements. It followed Mr.
Rabin's meeting in Wash-
ington with Defense Secre-
tary Les Aspin, who pledged
continued cooperation and
support.
Defense Ministry sources
would say only that Mr.
Wisner was briefed on "the
military situation in the
Middle East" and Israel's
defense capabilities.
Sources also said the
threat of Iran and expanding
Islamic fundamentalism
were discussed.
According to recent
reports, this month Iran will
receive and test North
Korea's surface-to-surface
Rodong ballistic missile,
which has the capacity to
strike Israel. ❑

DEC EMB ER

Lubavitch, threats have
allegedly been made against
Rabbi Groner's life. He is be-
ing protected by two New
York City policemen and his
own supporters, observers
say.
Rabbi Groner first became
closely involved in the
rebbe's medical care after
Rabbi Schneerson had a
heart attack on Simchat
Torah in 1977.
Part of the treatment
prescribed by his car-
diologist included regular
doses of aspirin, which the
rebbe took for years until he
began having eye problems a
few months before his 1992
stroke.
Rabbi Groner took the
rebbe to see an oph-
thalmologist, who suggested
that the aspirin intake could
be contributing to his eye
problems, according to Mr.
Yanover.
The rebbe's cardiologist,
Dr. Ira Weiss, was said to be
leery of taking him off the
aspirin but agreed to allow it
for a week, to see if the oph-
thalmologist was right.
When the rebbe suffered
his massive stroke two mon-
ths later, it was discovered
that he had not started
taking the aspirin again.
People in Rabbi Krinsky's
camp believe that the stroke
likely would not have
happened if the rebbe had
resumed taking aspirin.
What's more, say those
siding with Rabbi Krinsky,
