Video: Pedophilia In Crown Heights

Rabbi Moshe Keller 2 PIX 11 reports on the arrest of Rabbi Moshe Keller.

 

I think Mary Murphy's report is is overstated. There are still many pedophiles in Crown Heights and in Chabad in general, and there are coverups – like in Melbourne, Australia.

Still, there is movement toward doing the right thing that is significant.

The beit din ruling, for example, is good. But it is still missing the signature of the third rabbi of the beit din, which calls the validity of the ruling into question.

I was told the day the ruling was released that the third rabbi would be signing it within a day or two.

It's now about two weeks later, I think, but as far as I know (and as far as PIX 11 showed on air) he hasn't signed yet.

Of the two rabbis who did sign, one did not know or understand what child sexual abuse was, until Rabbi Nuchem Rosenberg explained it to him in rather graphic terms.

The push for the biet din to act came largely from kids who say they have been molested by Keller (who supposedly has an Israeli police record for similar child sex abuse), and from outside activists like Rabbi Nuchem Rosenberg who helped them.

Community leaders, machers, etc., were largely not involved.

The point is that Chabad is certainly making progress, but that progress is not as great as PIX 11 reported.

I should add two other things.

First, the video released to train kids about the dangers of sex abuse shows an abductor who looks different from a normally dressed haredi man. But the grandfather teaching the boy about those dangers is dressed normally for the haredi community.

This visual message is very dangerous, because most pedophiles are known to their victims and dress just like other members of the communities they live in.

Kids will learn to fear the oddly dressed stranger but not the normally dressed stranger, and that is dangerous.

Second, Dov Hikind told PIX 11 that he believes Leiby Kletzzky was picked up by Levi Aron for the purpose of sexually abusing Leiby.

I reported on the day Leiby's body was found that Levi Aron had a history of pedophilia, that he was known as a pedophile.

As time passes we have had reports from neighbors about other attempted abductions by Aron.

Police claims that no evidence of sexual abuse was found does not rule out sexual abuse.

And I believe that will become clearer by the time this case gets to trial.

Uch.h..he did it under the guise of the so-called "organization" he ran. I'm so over all these fucking charitable "organizations". There's nothing 'organized' about them.

I think there should be a moratorium on all charitable organizations in this country, for awhile. And in the meantime, all existing ones should be canvassed, to make sure they're ethical.

Keep it clean guys, if you can't keep it clean then keep it normal.

why wont u right wat happened in lakewood wit gelbwacs?????

What happened with gelbwachs in lakewood? Many people say it never happened!!!!!!!

The point is that Chabad is certainly making progress

... and that is what counts! Let us hope that all the other chassidic factions also join Chabad and make progress towards educating our children to be more vigil.

gelbwacs was /is amajor cover up just like all the other molestation cases.

that leaders were not involved id not the case

shea hecht and members of the extended hecht family were involved on many levels to get these animals of the streets

btw leibel blesofsky was thrown out of a chabad shul

All these ortho freaks should rot in hell, this stems from the farkrumpte bullshit chassidim feed their kids about how women are just objects so they create these perverts who need to get their rocks off but were never taught how to express normal sexuality so they become scumbag molesters.

gelbwacs is a serious miscarrige of justice
Rabbi A.M.K. and Mickey R. will be held responsible one day, as well as Hatzola for keeping him on!

Do you mean, "All these freaks should rot in hell" or "All Orthodox Jews should rot in Hell"? Combining them like that makes little sense.
