Bend Over Agudah – Truth Is Incoming

Was there a time when some of Agudah's leaders were actually honest?

Rabbi Eliezer Silver's grandson talks about his own sexual abuse and what his grandfather did about it.

Note that no senior level Agudah rabbis has done the same today, and that many children have suffered as a result.

This runs about one minute:

Gershon Silver

Rabbi Eliezer Silver actually was something, unlike the Novominsker and many of Agudah's current rabbinic hacks and its apparatchiks like Dovid Zwiebel, whose combined rabbinic skills barely fill a tea bag, if that.

This doesn't make Rabbi Silver perfect – it just shows again how totally imperfect and corrupt today's Agudah leaders are.

get this kind of stuff to newspapers

Always wondered how Shafran (a spokesman) and Zweibel (a lawyer) suddenly became "rabbis."

I know a number of people with semikha- who, I daresay, know a lot more than these two- who refuse to be called "rabbi" because they don't act as one. Honesty would demand that these two would do the same, semikha (instant, it seems) or not.

Pedophile Yona Weinberg may take the stand today.

Brooklyn teen accuses bar mitzvah tutor, former social worker, of abuse
By Scott Shifrel
DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER
Tuesday, June 23rd 2009
A frightened Brooklyn teenager shakily took the stand Monday to accuse a bar mitzvah tutor of repeatedly molesting him.
...

I like how my friend "Shimshonit" (an MO olah from America, living in Efrat) put it:

"Israeli news headlines"
http://shimshonit.wordpress.com/2009/07/20/israeli-news-headlines/

"Despite all but one of these headlines being a real downer (Go Natan!), I’m still optimistic. ... And I believe that one day, the scales will fall from the eyes of the medieval, chauvinistic elements of the Jewish world, and they will pull their heads out of their nether regions and realize that it is injustices like child and spousal abuse, protecting husbands who refuse to give their wives divorces, and persecution of converts that keeps the Messiah from coming, not the length of a woman’s sleeve or how much of her hair is hidden."

Teshuva, Tefilla, U'tzedaka Ma'avirin es roah hagezeira.

Where is the audio?

I first became aware of your campaign by several anti-israel, anti-judaism and anti zionism sites, who love to quote your words. is funny how the palestinians are also backed up by these same groups who love to quote everything you say, and they get a lot of credibility because by referring people to your site they are proving to the world that their info is not anti semitism and that even jews like you agree with them. may you continue to eradicate and expose these filthy jews of the face of the earth as it is well known that they are the source of all pedophiles and pornography and evil.
nice work, you sure you jewish?

i have had sificulty accessing the rabi silver audio on child abuse can you help? rav silver was a giant read the bio the silver era writtien by rokefet not an artscoll but a real bio

The link is broken on the SFJ website.

Nothing I can do about that. Sorry…

The audio doesn't work!

Why Don't you post the transcrip Shmaryahu?

The Adio was not available to me for some reason.

You are doing a good job protecting your community by the way. I am sure with bloggers like you more people will not suffer such cruel abuse.

I AM 23 YEARS OLD AND I HAVE BEEN SEXUALLY ABUSED BY THREE MEN WHO I TRUSTED: 1.A ROSH YESHIVA THAT IS THE SON OF ONE OF THE LEADERS OF THE ORTHODOX COMMUNITY IN ISRAEL. AND NOW YOU KNOW WHY I THOUGHT I CAN TRUST HIM AS WELL AS THE OTHERS... 2. A PRESIDENT OF ONE OF THE BETTER YESHIVAS IN WHO IS THE INHERITTING SON OF ONE OF THE ROSH YESHIVAS THERE,BNEI-BRAK ISRAEL.(HE WEARS THE CLOTHING OF A "GOOD RABBI" AND LOOKS JUST FINE) 3.ANOTHER SON OF ANOTHER LEADER OF THE CHAREIDI COMMUNITY IN BNEI-BRAK. ALL OF THESE PEOPLE ARE CONSIDERED THE BEST OF THE BEST, AND NO, THIS IS NO ACCIDENT THEY DID THIS INTENTIONALY. PEOPLE OF HASHEM, WAKE UP. IF YOU WANT TO SERVE GOD AND BE ORTHODOX OR EVEN ULTRA-ORTHODOX, DO SO. YES, TO GETTING HELP FROM YOUR COMMUNITY. NO TO TRUST THEM IN ANY WAY.
ELI...
WHO SUFFERS UNTILL THIS VERY DAY AS A COSEQUENCE.

People who abuse do not wear a sign on their forhead. A pedeophile goes to where the children are. Makes sense doesn't it.

Where do you find children? In the religious institutions, in schools etc. At least there are Jews who are willing to prosecute people who profess to be Jewish but who abuse children.

However there are also people who falsely accuse someone. This can be devastating for all concerned.

Many pedeophiles have and are respected members of society. That is until they are caught red handed. Of course few if any pedeophiles publicly brag about being so.

However I do remember that there was an old edition of Sixty Minutes in the USA. They interviewed some pedeophiles. They have a plan and organizations. Their plan is to get pedeophilia accepted by all of society or the entire world. (I guess that includes Jews)

I'll make you think too!

Does that mean you can walk to a black person and call him/her nigger?
If you did would you say to him/her; Why are you offended? I hear you saying it all the time.

Are we going to run away from truth and discussion because the goyim might not like what we are discussing?

Rabbi Silver said that his grandfather issued a psak din that all incidences of sexual abuse must be reported directly to the police.And that all molesters must be put into cherem and not allowed into shul. For more information www.survivorsforjustice.org

I READ YOUR FAILED MESSIAH, WHY DO YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE FACE AND STORY ABOUT RABBI ELIEZER SILVER PERMANENT
FIXTURE ON YOUR FRONT PAGE WEB FOREVER.
IS THAT ALL THE JEWISH PEOPLE DO OR YOU JUST WANT TO PROMOTE THE IDEA. THAT CAN LEAD TO THE READERS THINKING THAT WAY,
JEWISH PEOPLE PRAY IN THE SYNAGOGUES FOR
THE MESSIAH AND DON'T LOSE HOPE, YOUR FAILED MESSIAH NAMED WEBSITE CAN LEAD TO
EVENTUALLY THE REMOVAL OF PRAYING FOR ONE BY THE JEWISH PEOPLE. JUST LIKE RABBI ELIEZER SILVER AND FAILED MESSIAH ADVERTISING THOSE WORDS. GOD CAN SEE AND HEAR, JEWISH PEOPLE PRAY POSITIVE FOR A MESSIAH AND PRAYING MEANS GOD WILL ANSWER, FAILED WITH THE MESSIAH WEBSITE MEANS FOR GOD NOT TO SEND A MESSIAH. GOD IS EVERYWHERE AND YOU ARE SENDING A MESSAGE TO GOD THAT JEWISH PEOPLE DO NOT WANT A MESSIAH, GOD WILL GIVE THE JEWISH PEOPLE A MESSIAH AND FAILED MESSIAH MEANS FOR GOD NOT TO SEND ONE. A MESSIAH CAN BE MOSES

Hi As a Jew and a survivor of child abuse i think, The death sentence of being a abuse victim should be made into the freedom of seeing the abuser put to death.

Your story reminds me of the old story of 'JC' who turned away from his faith and people when he was rejected one time too many by his Rebbe and went to the 'other side'. I do not want to discuss whether your website is right or wrong but just want to say simply that what you write is 'loshen hara'. This can only lead to a very dark place. (Just look at todays tabloids and Rupert Murdoch et al.,)I myself have had bad experiences with both Jews and Goyim. Thats life unfortunately. You get over these things by dedicating your life to light, love and goodness (any mitzvah will do) and leave out the 'loshen hara'. Your life will surely improve at some point. I hope you change paths very soon - the world needs more positive energy and you deserve to be happy!!!

I read this with great concern. Some will say to you it is "לשון הרע. I a believing Jew. I an Israeli. I חסיד.

What you are doing here, is it לשון הרע? I say, from Torah as I understand, it is not l'sh'n h'ara. Was it לשון הרע when our Prophets (may their hearts live forever) called out to the wicked of our people their sins? No. To me in my understanding, if you leave the little ones in the dust of evil and refuse them justice by means of words (tongue) this is true לשון הרע. (evil tongue). To not use your tongue to cry out for justice and reveal the essence of evil among us is לשון הרע.

Ha'Shem demands of us that we protect the weak and what is this that people Am Yisrael are saying? Because a man calls himself Rebbe is this man free to destroy? No, this cannot be. To the author of this site you know I not your judge and you no you are not the judge of anyone. You are voice crying out in the wilderness (world) for those who have be cast down by the wickedness of others. Is it לשון הרע when Ha'Shem calls names of the wicked? NO! You who made this site are more of a true Rebbe than those who do wickedness hiding in the title Rebbe. You live the justice and Torah while they deny justice for the little ones.

I am of rage when I see the wickedness done to our people even by those who say they are Rebbe. Because of them, Ha'Shem is blasphemed among the nations. Yes, because of "them" not you who speak for those who have been silenced and broken at "their" hands the self called Rebbe.

I seek תיקון עולם for all. If am wrong and you correct me it will be as a kindness.

Please forgive my English. I in hope I did not break rules of your site. Is it we בני אור or חושך ? Repair my words if they are wrong.

שלום עליכם,

An Outcast from Bnai Brak

What time is it?

I'm sorry, Corrupt? Agudah?

Please don't say things you don't understand.

As a person who worked for AIA, i can tell you that they are the furthest thing from corrupt.

FAILED MESSIAH WORDS ARE NOT IN THE TORAH AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE CANNOT PRAY AND REMOVE WORDS TO ACCOMADATE THEMSELVES INTO PRAYING FULLY TO GOD. READING THE WORDS FAILED MESSIAH VIOLATES THE OLD TESTAMENT.
YOU HAVE THE ONLY WEBSITE DEDICATED TO A CONTINUTED SEX ISSUES THAT PROMOTES TARGETS JEWISH PEOPLE. WHEN ONE SEX CASE IS OVER ANOTHER POPS UP. CONSTANT COMMENTS OPINIONS ON SEX CASES. RABBI ELIEZER HAS BEEN ON YOUR WEBSITE SO FAR FOR A YEAR AND YOUR WRITERS DO NOT NOTICE HIM EXCEPT YOUR READERS
