Accused Hasidic Child Sex Abuser Says He Counseled Alleged Pre-Teen Victim "To Save Her Life" From Immodest Tights

The Daily News has a good report on today's testimony in the trial of accused child sexual abuser Rabbi Nechemya Weberman. Here's a brief summary.

1. Weberman said he, “never, ever” sexually abused children.

2. He testified that he founded a charity and used it to pay for his salary and his kids’ education. (This is probably tax fraud.)

3. Weberman was confronted with financial records that showed his charity’s credit cards were used at BMG Corset & Lingerie, The Lingerie Shop and other undergarment stores. “Me, myself, I’m not aware of this,” Weberman said. “This is the first time I heard about it,” Weberman reportedly answered.

4. The charity’s only principals are Weberman and his wife, Chaya Golda

5. In one month, the charity paid out close to $12,000 to Weberman and to Satmar schools for Weberman’s children’s tuition.

6. “Did you use this not-for-profit for your own personal gain?” Assistant District Attorney Kevin O’Donnell reportedly asked Weberman.  “Yes, I did,” Weberman reportedly replied.

And then there was this:

…a woman named Baila Gluck, 23, testified about residing at Weberman’s home office for a couple of years as a teen. She stayed in the same apartment as the alleged victim in the case being tried had claimed she was forced to perform oral sex and reenact porn starting in 2007.

Gluck said after she had no place to stay following troubles at home, “He offered (for me) to come live at his house.” She added that during her time there, two other girls occasionally stayed in the flat.

One of those girls has told authorities she caught Weberman and Gluck in a compromising position. That person refused to testify for fear of retribution, a source said.

But Gluck, asked if one of the girls ever walked in and saw her sitting on Weberman’s lap while he had an erection, replied “No.”

She also denied being taken by Weberman to buy lingerie and bras and also a claim that she told the other housemate, when discussing the counselor, “I had to do what I had to do to get by.”…

Gluck was also asked, “Isn't it true that masked individuals came into your bedroom in the middle of the night and seized your cell phone? And that this is the type of action Va’ad Hatznius takes when Satmar don't follow the rules? And wasn't it traumatic for you?” She reportedly answered yes to each of those questions.

Weberman's alleged victim, who turned 18-years-old Wednesday, previously testified that she got into trouble with Satmar school officials and was forced to go to Weberman for counseling because she had questions about God's existence and, more importantly, because she wore tights that were not thick enough. Her former principal later testified and supported the girl's claim about her tights, noting that the then-12-year-old girl's modesty standards were not in accord with Satmar norms.

Today Weberman was asked by his lawyer to explain what the point was in sending the girl to him for counseling. What was the counseling supposed to achieve?

“To save her life,” Weberman reportedly answered.

Read what he says, the reason he counseled the girl. Not thick enough tights?!? Definitely a cult, not Judaism.

Yes, there is probably fraud and misuse of non-profit funds. But, that is not what the trial is about.

Most frum women do not wear thick stockings. If this guy, NW, keeps talking, he might go to mandated counseling as well as prison.
What religion does he practice?

Don't be ridiculous. You have to get a heter.

You don't need birth control for oral sex.

this guy is going to jail if he used not-profit charity money for personal use .
the D.A should charge him separately for financial fraud . what he did is against the law and if he admitted it in court, then, the D.A has a case against him .
that way ,if weberman wins the case of child abuse , he can still serve jail term for fraud .

Yes, sure he counseled her, this is how he probably counseled her: "Hey little girl, sit over her, on my lap, let discuss the modesty issues that have been brought up to my attention"

who shopped at the lingerie using his charity credit cards ? him, of course , buying lingerie for those teen age girls he provided shelter for so that he can use them for sex .
i don't think he gave the charity credit cards to the teens for them to buy the lingerie . he did .
his wife could not have bought lingerie for herself. she is too fat and too ugly .
she could not have used lingerie . no way .

if possible can the public have an idea of how much was bought at the lingerie and the itimized items that was bought .

this weberman is really something .

how many more teenage girls did he let use his home/office for them to live in?

Why dont the prosecuters just get testimony from the victims on specific anatomical details about Weberman that would be incontravertable once he was forced to drop trow and undergo a detailed examination. Surely after three years of daily four-hour oral abuse there must be certain details like length, width, shape, distinguishing marks, or average volume of semen during ejaculation. If the testimonies of multiple victims are similar and match what's in his shorts, he's toast.

He testified that he founded a charity and used it to pay for his salary and his kids’ education. (This is probably tax fraud.)

The whole Boro Park and Williamsburg does this. They call their home a shul (synagogue) and a non-profit organization, they get their friends and relatives to sign up for "membership" in their synagogue, everyone does it for each other, and they pay their housing, tuitions, everything TAX FREE.

Every good, frum, Chassidish family has a tax-exempt non-profit that they use for tax evasion. All while they collect welfare benefits, food stamps, medicaid, section 8 housing, etc.

I'm sure the Yeshivish Chareidim are catching on to the game also by now.

That is true - but you do need breath control.

If you want to know who satmar is here is an interesting article in hebrew:

בגלל פרשת נדל״ן בניו יורק מתנהלת מלחמת חרמה במשה אריה פרידמן! האבא והדוד מנהלים את המאבק נגדו!

כפי שמסתמן מי שעומד מאחורי הפרשה והעסק הביש של התאכזרויות של הפרשה המקוממת והחילול ה׳ הנורא ובתוצאותיו הרות האסון ואפילו בתמיכה כספית נרחבה בהוצאות המשפט והמערכה העקובה מדם הוא לא אחר מהאבא שלו!!!! ושמו הוא אברהם חיים בן פראדל פרידמן ביחד עם אחיו הידוע משה בן פראדל פרידמן שותפו לדבר עבירה.
כפי הידוע משה אריה פרידמן פנה עורף לסטמר כנראה משהו בין 15 ל20 שנה, וכפי שמסתמן בסאטמאר אם יש מישהו שמפנה עורף או הולך דרך עצמאית לחלוטין הסאטמארים לאורך ההיסטורי שלהם הגיבו בשפיכות דמים ואכזריות (ראה פרשת מנדל ווכטר מחב״ד וכו׳). הם עשו אותו דבר בווינה כידוע בווינה הבית ספר היה פרטי ובבעלות הסאטמארים הזאלונים בשותפות כמה בעלי בתים מבעלזא. גם שמה משפחתו עמד מאחורי כל העניין והשתמשו בשימוש ציני של העניין של איראן ונטורי קרתא (מגיע אליי חומר מהפרשה שמה ואולי בהזדמנות אחרת) ובווינה התחרטו שהסאטמארים הוליכו אותם שולל והם שילמו את המחיר לבסוף בלי ההשלכות למשפחתו. מה שזעזע והרעיד במיוחד את מקבלי ההחלטות ושותפי הסוד במוסדות החרדיות באנטוורפן הוא הממצאים המחרידות שהונחו על השולחן לאחרונה שבעצם מדובר כאן בעניין של סחיטה ואיומים בפרשה פלילי ביותר וגם בינלאומי.

להלן הפרשה המסעירה:

בשנת 1994 אז היה משה אריה פרידמן גר באנטוורפן כאיש עסקים קטן ומצליח קנה נדל״ן במליוני דולרים ובין היתר מר׳ לייבוש לפקוביץ ראש הקהל של סאטמאר בוויליאמסבורג על סך של בערך 180000 דולר שממוקם ב31 rossstreet וויליאמסבורג, כשהמנכ״ל שלו דאז אריה לייב גלאנץ היה מעורב בעיסקה. אחיו של הנ״ל מרדכי מנשה גלאנץ מנכ״ל הכוללים של UTA של סאטמאר בוויליאמסבורג, שכר וגר בהדירה מאז עד היום. בשנת 2009 כשמ.א. פרידמן היה בשלב הסופי למכור את הדירה בריווח לא קטן, עורכי דינו נדהמו לגלות בטאבו (acris) שמישהו סילף את חתימתו ואת תעודת זהות שלו (Identityfraud) ומכר הנדל״ן שלו בסכום של כאילו 10 עשרה דולר לחברה פיקטיבי בשם YSH Realty LLC. כתוצאה מ.א. פרידמן פשוט התקשר למחלקת הטאבו של ממשלת ניו יורק ופשוט העביר להם הצילום של תעודות זהות שלו והוכיח שהחתימות הם מזוייפים והגיש תלונה בדרישה להחזיר לו את הנד״ן בטאבו.

כידוע הפרשה התגלגלה והסתעפה בחקירה מסועפת מאוד של הרשויות הפדרליות של ארצות הברית שסיבך מאוד את UTA וסאטמאר, וכידוע המרדכי מנשה גלאנץ וחיו אריה לייב נעצרו ע״י הרשויות הפדרליות ומחכים לפסק בית משפט הפדרלי במנהטן על עונשם של כמה שנים בכלא.

עכשיו אבא שלו אברהם חיים בן פראדל ואחיו משה בן פראדל וUTA דורשים בתוקף מהמוסדות והקהילה החרדית באנטוורפן לקחת את הילדים האומללים כבני ערובה בסחיטות ואיומים מפורשות בדרישה כדלהלן: מ.א. פרידמן שיצהיר בהצהרה שקרית ובתוקף חוקי שהוא כן חתם על החוזה למכור את הנדל״ן שלו בעשרה דולר, ובתמורה מבטיחים לסדר את הילדים. משמעות הדברים שהם רוצים כנקמה לסבך אותו פלילית על דבר שכבר הוכח וידוע לגמרי. כמובן שהעניין יסתעף את החרדים בחקירות פליליות בינלאומיות. מ.א. פרידמן דוחה את כל הרעיון על הסף ובנחרצות.

ראוי לציין שאביו אברהם חיים פרידמן ידוע עם עסקים מפוקפקים ומלבין הון ידוע בברוקלין שבני יורק. ולסיכום הוא גורש מאשתו מלכה שטיינברג והתחתן מחדש עם אשה חדשה ושמה הניה וולטר. שמועות עקשניות מדברות על כך שכל פרשת המחלוקת בסאטמאר בין ר׳ אהרן ור׳ זלמן לייב נובע מכך שר׳ אהרן וסאשא טייטלבוים היו בצדה של האישה שטיינברג כשלצד השני אחיו משה גבאי הברך משה ור׳ זלמן לייב והיו בצדו של אברהם חיים, ובין היתר זרקו את ילדיו של אברהם חיים מהמוסדות של סאטמאר במונרו ובהסכמתו ובדרישתו על העוון שלא באו לשבתות לאביהם אברהם חיים. יודעי דבר יודעים לספר שהפרשה הוא מכוערת מאין כמותו גם בעניינים של קדושה וצניעות אצל אברהם חיים.

עכשיו המוסדות באנטוורפן מחפשים דרך מוצא מהפלונטר שמצאו את עצמם בסכנת קיום של המוסדות ושסיבכו את עצמם עם אנשי סאטמאר מלביני ההון שהשתמשו בשימוש ציני בקשריהם עם אנשי העסקים היהלומים ועומדים בפני החלטה בקרוב לא לשתף פעולה עם הדרישות של הסחיטה והאיומים של סאטמאר והמסובכות ביותר על עניין לא להם. ובמקום לרחקו בכיוון של סאטמאר לקרבו.

It's all over now - I heard that the prosecution has submitted for evidence pictures of Weberman waltzing around his apartment in fishnet stockings and a push-up bra. Apparently he has quite the man-boobs.

> Weberman said he, “never, ever” sexually abused children.

And he's probably telling the truth. He defines "child" as someone less than 10 years old.

She's a child till she sprouts two pubic hairs. He was just checking...

Just remember Weberman is on trial for child abuse, not fraud or tax evasion. You never know how a jury will react. Hopefully he gets nailed and this will open the door for more far reaching prosecutions.

@sam hoffman,
please post a translation into english about the article you posted . i don't read hebrew . i'm interested to read it . thank you.

Weberman was also confronted with financial records that showed his charity’s credit cards were used at BMG Corset & Lingerie,

-------------------------------------------------
Did not know Lakewood has a Lingerie store.

Weberman said he, “never, ever” sexually abused children.

And he's probably telling the truth. He defines "child" as someone less than 10 years old.
Definitions can be very misleading.
In sexual identity politics there are of course the false dichotomies of homo and hetero e.g.:[cut and pasted by Mendel]
http://www.wnd.com/2012/12/sexual-orientation-changeable-after-all-says-gay-activist/
[B]eing “gay” isn’t necessarily permanent.
“Sexuality is fluid, especially when it goes beyond the binary of ‘gay’ and ‘straight’ labels,” says a description of the “Beyond Bisexuality: Living Between the Labels” seminar presented by Prideworks for LGBT Youth.

“The way a person experiences it may change over time and with monogamy, which may make labels confusing and ultimately unnecessary.”

The seminar was presented Nov. 16 by Kathleen Harrison of Emmanuel College and Cameron Duplessis of the University of Connecticut, according to the organization’s website.

Prideworks is a “conference for lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender youth and their allies,” according to the organization’s website. Its mission is “to inform our communities about the realities of growing up gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, and to inspire them to respect and support LGBT people and to advocate for positive change.”
“It means that they honestly know and they’ve always known, they factually know, that sexuality is fluid and is a choice. You choose who you go to bed with,”
“The sexual anarchists’ lobby want to have their cake and eat it too,” he said. “They want to say that homosexuality … is fluid, yet they also want to say for political purposes, for legal purposes, that sexuality is fixed.

“You can’t have it both ways,” he said. “They acknowledge that sexuality is fluid, that it may change over time. How do you reconcile that with the nonsensical notion that people, once self-identified as gay are gay forever?”

“[E]x-gay deniers” want to reject the idea that people can or ever have left homosexuality.


Until this detail about the credit cards, I thought there was a chance that Weberman was innocent. Now, unless the lingerie fits either his wife or him (Maybe he is a cross dresser?) he is definitely guilty. I can't think of another reason why a man in such a strict community would buy such things.
