Haredi Hall of Shame






a
Our Haredi Hall of Shame
a
 

Our goal

This "Our Haredi Hall of Shame" Page follows up on various misconducts and dysfunctions in the orthodox Jewish Community worldwide and aims at sensitizing in the first place our community to the existence among us of these malefactors. All the cases referred to here have had widespread publicity outside the Jewish community. Only the Orthodox Jewish circles remain uninformed and unaware of these matters.

 

It is because of the shielding and overprotection of our community, that we end up not being informed on the magnitude of these scandals and that we can pretend that these problems do not exist or are at least very limited among us. The end-result of this is that (a) nothing is being done to extirpate these wrongdoings and (b) these wrongdoers do not even suffer community disapprobation.

The day Haredi Press will publicize these shameful acts by Haredim, our Hall of Shame will become superfluous, because we do not target the Gentiles, but our own Haredi people, who need to be aware of these malfunctions in our society.

 

This "Our Haredi Hall of Shame" Page wants precisely to remediate that situation.

Alleged victim“I received an anonymous phone call last night with a message from one of your "friends" on Facebook, who expressed
great consternation and concern that you have chosen to publicize to "friends" (regardless of their age, sincerity and
 level of intimacy) your history of sexual abuse. Your public Facebook page is troubling enough, as is your Google history
 [which are open to the whole world]. It is troubling primarily because you have chosen to identify yourself by your pathology.
You no longer appear as a full human - but rather as "case study" of a young woman warped by her childhood experiences, and
is thus identified wholly by that past.…I am asking you to exercise a measure of discretion, and develop a plan to go beyond your
past towards healing. You seem too intent on wallowing in the past, and drawing sick attention to yourself for all of the wrong reasons.
 At the same, you identify yourself as a student of Hebrew Theological College, and by association besmirch your peers as well as yourself."

     Audio: What Rabbi Manis Friedman Really Said About Child Sex Abuse

Rabbi manis

missing couple of minutes from the beginning of the video version of the rant that will probably make you ill. Friedman
 brings up the subject of molestation, says that hardly a kid who attends yeshivas or programs [Chabad, haredi, etc.] hasn't
 been sexually abused, and then he goes on to trivialize the abuse, make jokes about victims, and in essence claim that child
 sexual abuse is only as damaging as victims allow it to be because the damage is all collateral. The abuse itself isn't a big
 aveirah, sin, he says – not saying the after-blessing over a piece of cake is worse. But Friedman opens with a horrific statement
 about abuse that was not included in the video version of Friedman's rant. And when you hear it you'll know how horrible Manis Friedman truly is.

     Video: Dangerous, Idiotic And Insulting – Rabbi Manis Friedman 'Explains' Child Sexual Abuse

Rabbi manis
                        friedmanAnother hasidic untrained and unlicensed therapist/counselor, Chabad's Rabbi Manis Friedman, claims child sexual abuse
does not damage its victims, and that not saying the rabbinic prayer to be said after eating a piece of cake is worse than
something – abuse – that happened to you as a child. Victims suffer, he claims, only from the feeling that they are damaged goods.
They should realize that we are all damaged goods, abused or not, he claims, and then equates the damage of child sexual abuse
 with the damage other people experience as children from uncaring teachers or teachers who belittled them. Friedman
 completely misunderstands (or is unsympathetic to) the deep psychological pain child sexual abuse causes – to the extent that
even pre-verbal infants who are sexually abused can have psychological issues throughout their lives from that sexual abuse.

    Agudath Israel's Executive V.P. Wonders Whether Actions Taken By Bloggers To Save Kids From Abuse Were Worth It

 “…[T]hrough the pressure [bloggers] have created, communal issues that need to be confronted were moved to the front burner and taken seriously.
A case in point is abuse and molestation issues. The question is, if the fact that [bloggers have] created some degree of change
 is worth the cost. At the very least, it’s rechilus, lashon hara,
and bittul zman. That’s a high price to pay.” What Agudath Israel of America's Executive V.P. Rabbi David Zwiebel is asking is as follows:
 is the publication of true negative information about a pedophile or about rabbis covering for a pedophile(s), or false information, or the
waste of time that should have been spend studying Torah, worth the improvement bloggers caused by doing all that. His answer seems to be no.
 In other words, for Agudath Israel of America, saving the lives of children and preventing pedophilia is less important than preventing rechilus, lashon hara and bittul Torah.

    NY State Finally Clarifies Law On Rabbis Reporting Child Sex Abuse

Agudath Israel of America Moetzet Gedolei
                  HaTorahHaredi rabbis who teach in yeshivas can no longer falsely claim they are exempt from reporting child sex abuse to police or ACS. The state has clarified the law, and all teachers – even rabbis – guidance counselors, social workers, school nurses, administrators or any other staff member who is required to hold a teaching or administrative license or certificate – even if they do not have that license or certificate – is mandated to report suspected abuse and must do so directly to police or ACS. It is illegal to call a rabbi first to get permission to report. And that means Rabbi David Zwiebel and his Agudah cronies should prosecuted for interfering in this process and for endangering the welfare of children. But Brooklyn's DA Charles Hynes doesn't have the balls to do it.
