Abuse in Jewish Religion
 
Orthodox Jewish communities here and overseas have been roiled by allegations of child sexual abuse in recent years. Most disturbingly, evidence has pointed to a widespread pattern of behavior in which Orthodox Jewish leaders, including rabbis, have obstructed efforts to bring the perpetrators of these crimes to the attention of secular authorities. In far too many cases, child sexual abusers within the Jewish Orthodox community have been allowed to continue their predatory behavior unchecked because of this obstruction. No one knows how many Jewish Orthodox children have been victimized because of the sexual abuse cover-ups perpetuated by community leaders.

The personal injury lawyers at Parker Waichman Alonso LLP are investigating the epidemic of child sexual abuse within the Jewish Orthodox community, and we intend to make sure those community leaders who allowed such crimes to go unpunished are held accountable. We are currently offering free and confidential lawsuit consultations to Jewish Orthodox sexual abuse victims. If you or a loved one were betrayed by a leader in the Jewish Orthodox community and you want justice, we urge you to contact one of our experienced and compassionate personal injury lawyers today.

Jewish Orthodox Sexual Abuse Cover-ups
Child sexual abuse can occur in any community. But when a community's leaders allow it to go unpunished, and even worse, pressure victims and their families into staying silent, sexual predators are given a free hand to exploit children as they wish. Sadly, that appears to be what has happened in some Orthodox Jewish communities in the U.S. and abroad.

According to a July 2011 report from the New York Post, sexual abuse victims in some of New York's Orthodox Jewish communities have been routinely discouraged by rabbis from making reports to criminal authorities. "There are prohibitions and a psychological fear about saying bad things about people or talking about negative things that bring shame,” Long Island psychologist Michael Salamon, author of a book about abuse in the Orthodox community, told the Post.

That JTA News Service reported that same month that Rabbi Shmuel Kamenetsky, the vice-president of Agudath Israel of America's Supreme Council of Rabbinic Sages, insisted in a speech in Flatbush, Brooklyn that the sexual abuse of a child should be reported to a rabbi, who would then determine if the police should be called. The misguided speech occurred on July 12, the same day members of the New York Jewish Orthodox community were frantically searching for 8-year-old Leiby Kletzky, whose dismembered body was found the following day in a dumpster and in the apartment of Levi Aron, a suspected child predator.

It is also becoming more apparent that the conspiracy of silence regarding child sexual abuse is not limited to one, or even a few, Jewish Orthodox communities. There have been reports of similar pressure being heaped on child sexual abuse victims and their families in Orthodox communities as far away as Australia. In that country, a scandal involving alleged widespread abuse at Yeshivah College prompted police to write students, imploring victims to come forward. Apparently, officials at the college did not report the crimes of Jewish studies teacher David Kramer, who fled Australia in the early 1990s after parents complained he had sexually abused boys. Kramer went on to offend in the U.S., sodomizing a 12-year-old boy while conducting a youth program at a St Louis synagogue. Parents in Australia have said their children were threatened with being thrown out of Yeshivah College if they reported Kramer’s conduct to secular authorities.

NY Police Commissioner doesnt want to know any more- praises Jews.

Shomrim In the Spotlight

Organizations known as Shomrim that operate as volunteer neighborhood watches in many Orthodox Jewish communities are coming under scrutiny following the disappearance and murder of 8-year-old Leiby Kletzky  in New York City.  Critics of these groups claim the Shomrim often operate with little accountability, and can even interfere with the work of law enforcement by discouraging victims child sexual abuse and other crimes from making police reports.

Following the discovery of Leiby's body in a dumpster and in the home of his alleged killer, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly publicly praised the Shomrim for mobilizing the community in a massive search effort for the boy.  But according to a report from The Jewish Weekly, another unidentified NYPD official slammed one of the groups for taking its time in reporting the boy's disappearance to police.  Apparently, there was a lag of more than two hours between the time Leiby's mother called the Brooklyn South Shomrim about her son's disappearance, and his father's call to 911 to notify the police.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Commission Kelly acknowledged that the  Shomrim often do not immediately notify police when they get reports and that this has been a “longstanding” issue for the department, but asserted the time lag probably did not make a difference in the Leiby Kletzky case.

Some media reports also speculated the Shomrim may have received warnings about Leiby's alleged killer - Levi Aron - because a parent had complained in the weeks prior to the murder that he had stalked another boy in the neighborhood.  But the founder and coordinator of the South Brooklyn Shomrim told The Daily News that wasn't the case.

"No one ever complained to us about him," Jacob Daskel said.

He did, however, acknowledge that the Shomrim keeps a list of suspected child predators.  The list currently contains about 15 names, but has not been shared with police.

"The community doesn't go to the police with these names because the rabbis don't let you. It's not right," Daskel said.

A rabbi from the community confirmed this for The Daily News.

"It's against Halacha [Jewish law] to go the police without speaking to the rabbis," said Rabbi Joseph Hershkowitz, 57, who counsels families in Borough Park and Williamsburg. "We consider Shomrim and Hatzolah [the Jewish ambulance service] family. So you go to family first."

You have to wonder how many non Jewish kids this guy Aron snuffed right after a story came out about 10's of thousands of kids brutally raped and killed that Moshe Gerstein was involved in. The story just dropped off the map.

Police found other kids clothes in Arons apartment. We arent allowed to know who those kids may have been.

The media wont report that this is just the tip of the iceberg. Instead they will find some non Jew, Muslim, priest, Christian girl to lambaste. This media has to go.

Why do you think people were bombarded with all this Catholic priest nonsense?   You read about Jewish killers than killed for 20 yrs --- but are prosecuted  for 2 or 3 deaths.

Once a jew gets the taste of blood, they will kill every chance they get

Its certainly a pattern thats been going on a long long time. They have the ability to wipe out history and change the furniture around. They blame us for their crimes and take credit for our accomplishments. How the hell have they been able to get away with it? One wide open media outlet and theyre toast.
