Bassy the Haredi Slayer

The report neglects to mention that Zalman Cohen, the alleged serial molester and abuser who is in custody was the life coach for Sara Vorst' Ohel Sarah Imenu and some incidents happened in that school.

There were complains against him but Vorst who at that time was riding high because of her connections to Tropper and Eisenstein brushed them off. Now Tropper and Eisenstein cannot protect her and the chickens come home to roost.(Go Gur/Ger)

Vorst used to torture converts The Ohel Sarah Imenu Conversion Program and beatings could not have happened to a more deserving person.

Maskil

Everyone knows that her house leads to an intricate system of underground tunnels where a ring of pedophiles and alley cats rape and sexually abuse children. Any attempt to deny this is completely delusional.

Just like charedim--blame the outsider for abuse and punishing without taking the accused to court. Evidently children suffered some kind of abuse. Maybe in cheder? I know rebbes in cheders abuse, and not from FM.

I've read articles in the past that indicates some kind of abuse occurred. The question is where, by whom, and how extensive.

Makabit

This kind of thing happens periodically. We did not leave the witch hunts in the Renaissance.

Was/is there abuse going on in this community? Probably. It's not uncommon. The kind of abuse that's now getting described, extreme, ritual, all-pervasive, involving dozens of adults and no physical evidence left behind? No.

Nor is this just a haredi thing. The people who got swept up in this were not haredim.

When this burns out, and the truth dawns on people, it will only make it harder for the community to deal with real-life sexual abuse in a sane way.

I pray that the police involved do some research and figure out that they have a classic ritual sexual abuse panic on their hands.

Zalman Cohen was sentenced to 9 years in jail. A few months ago. Do you know about this? Did you write on this to inform everyone?
