Q. I purchased the first inaugural paroches at two different minyanim… and dedicated them in memory of grandparents. Both times, the person in charge made an announcement that they are seeking a donor and I immediately said yes, pledged and paid in full. What are my rights when the minyan seeks to replace the paroches? What if the minyan replaced the paroches without consulting me?
A. It may well depend on what is the usual custom of that institution in regard to donated items and how long they are kept, as established practices do vary between institutions.
Horav Shlomo Miller Shlit’a suggested that you may take back your poroches and donate it to other institutions.
As is usual in questions that involve two or more parties, the Rov recommends calling on a local competent Rov that can hear all sides and their claims.
Rabbi A. Bartfeld as advised by Horav Shlomo Miller Shlit’a
