if your kid has been abused it has nothing to do with " rabbis" go to the police first personally i would see my friends smith & wesson or my other friend mr colt before i see any rabbis that r only good at holding their hand out to ask for money

Still Suffering

Well good for Mrs Mauda for sticking up for herself!! People are so into hiding the bad things. Dont fool yourself, if your child is abused and u dont report it cuz your afraid you'll make the Jews look bad SHAME ON YOU!! I dont care what the Rabbis say...Ive been there unfortunately and am still suffering today because the rabbis held me back from taking it to legal matters..... U may have saved someone from going to jail, but there is also my Neshama that got thrown off being the Frum girl i used to be... Hope that makes all of you happy.

Mr. Apikoros

Your comment to me is as laughably stupid as your comment to Chazak. I apologize to the ENTIRE WORLD for not getting the word "straigh." That's right, I really do. And if my apology isn't good enough, you can throw in Serena Williams' and Kanya West's as well.

I don't have a "talorence" level for child molesters, asshat. Nor do I have a tolerance level for them either.

perpetually perplexed

Mr Apikorus, before you talk about other people's spelling why don't you at least get the word straigh. It's "perpetually" not "pertetualy". As for the inteligence level of your comment, you probably have a talorence level for child molesters as well. So before posting comments, why don't you think about the implications of what you'r writing.


Wonder if the Monsey people who reported the woman in this story to the police will be attacked for going to outside authorities.


Oh, I see... she didn't abuse childern or steal from goyim, she stole money from frum yidden - now that's a real crime!! Call the police, the FBI, Interpol, the Journal News!!!

Pablo Faird -

not quite. the torah copied from existing law such as the code of hamurabi and an earlier sumerian lawbook from 4500 years ago. about 1200 years BEFORE the torahs claimed age, and 1600 years before the actual writing of the torah.

Pablo Faird

FYI, our Torah is the basis (I repeat a basis and not a copy) for the judicial system in most countries.
It is obvious from your naive comments that you have never studied it in depth, perhaps find a study partner who can open your eyes and heart to the beauty it has to offer.

Chazak, so why are you on a Jewish site? Its not eastern europe, go marry out and remove you, your ancestors, and your family from the Jewish world! If neither the Torah nor Jewish learning over the centuries is meaningful to you, leave!

Mr. Apikoros

Pertetualy perplexed, your comment is as intelligent as your spelling.

Come back after you've spent a year in Afghanistan giving tolerance lessons to the Taliban.

perpetualy perplexed

You are a sick bastard, not worthy of even the slightest benefit from God's beautiful world. May you rot in hell for all eternity.


Also if you read the torah its glaringly obvious that torah law is evil savage dreck. We Jews don't have to buy that kinda satanic crap in order to remain Jews. Torah is mainly blood magic and really bad science and most of all a manual of social manipulation via superstition.


They aren't guided by Torah nor Talmud but rather by the superstitious ramblings of psychotics like Luria and pagan chassidut. These sects have their own laws and courts and thus cannot be properly said to be american. This BEHOOVES the american govt to intervene with all kinds of supervision.

"The Lakewood Orthodox leadership tells a different story. A community spokesman said any abandonment of the Maudas from neighbors and schools predated Shlomit's assault. He pointed to the reputation the family brought with them from Monroe, where they were in effect told to move, and their refusal to fit in while in Lakewood as reasons why only one of the eight children could find a school and why, eventually, they were again asked to leave."

I cannot imagine more hatred and racism then this.

Fit in? fit in for what?
leaving seven yidishe children without a school?
indeed the holy "bnei torah" of lakewood do have something in common with the holy monroe chasidim.


I as a lifelong close friend of shuas and friend of his familly would like to make clear a few points. One Shua DID NOT live a "normal" life until he fell to dugs.Ica\n attest to the fact that in six grade he many times almost COMMITTED SUICIDE. He told me how he used to sit by the window with his feet out and get scared at the last momment. After fighting for many years did he fall to drugs.
Don"t get me wrong, going against the Torah is never permitted but who are we to say we would be any better. He is not to be judged.
Another important point is that Shua DID NOT COMMIT SUICIDE but rather unintentionally die. Even the amount of percaset he took was less then the amount of drugs he took in the past. Hashem decided it was his time to go and he left this world after returning to the ways of our fathers. Shua ran for help even at the end he fought his whole life till the very end. He even spoke to us friends of his about how he was thinking about going to a yeshiva like Ohr Sameach. Hashem decided it was his time to go.
As Rabbi Simcha Bunim Cohen Shlita explained at Shuas levaya, Rabbeinu Yonah explains how if a person is going in the right way if he dies he is considerred to have lived a whole life of goodness and gets the reward for what he would"ve done

More concern for putting on a front to the rest of the world instead of their victims is only going to breed increasingly neurotic members of this cult. In their drive to prove to the world they are "pure", under the umbrella of all the "rules" they have created, is a prison preventing them from dishonoring one of their own. Isolated from worldly ideas, they pass on to their children a doctrine of twisted pride in this isolation. Their world revolves around protecting each other at any cost- no sense of self, thus creating little sheep who feel they have no other choice but to accept this unneccessary suffering at the hands of the ones in power. Where in the Torah does it justify pedofilia?


These animals are well known recidivists - they don't stop and they are also very talented in leading hidden lives So they can't be dealt with quietly pulled aside told to stop etc they just pretend, go somewhere else and do the same thing again - its a true compulsion
They must be dealt with by the criminal justice system

Bless the author for writing it.


I think this is one of the most important articles written on the topic of sexual violence in the orthodox world. I think everyone should be writing Asbury Press and thanking them for publishing this.


Indeed, his (Salomon's) position today is the same as it was then; that perpetrators and predators must be punished, albeit not in the limelight."

And how is that achieved without going to the police???? Better question, hasa a perpetrator ever been "punished" outside the "limelight"?
