More Weberman Victims Found

Rabbi Nechemya Weberman sepia smileRabbi Nechemya Weberman, the unlicensed Satmar hasidic counselor faces up to 117 years in prison for sexually abusing a Brooklyn girl beginning when she was 12-years-old and continuing until she was 15. Weberman is scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday. Now an investigation has found that Weberman violated at least 10 other girls and women — including teens and married women he counseled.

The Daily News reports:

…Nechemya Weberman, the unlicensed Hasidic counselor slated to be sentenced Tuesday for sexually abusing a Brooklyn girl [beginning when she was 12-years-old and continuing until she was 15], violated at least 10 others — including teens and married women he counseled, a Daily News investigation revealed.

[Weberman] invoked Kabbalah…to convince his victims that having sex with him was kosher.

“He’s a monster,” said a man whose daughter was repeatedly brutalized by Weberman a couple of years before the victim at [last month’s] trial came forward.…

Other women who were sexually abused by Weberman refused to speak publicly for fear of retribution. But those close to them described a pattern of nurturing and grooming where he would shower outcast teens with attention, take them on road trips — and even buy them lingerie.

He told one young victim, “That ‘I learned Kabbalah and we were a couple in another incarnation,’ ” said a friend of the woman.…

Weberman used women’s lowly standing in the ultra-Orthodox community to prey on the vulnerable, sources said.

“He is probably the only male who has ever given them the time of day and listened to them,” said a law enforcement source. “He had a huge amount of psychological hold over them.”

The father who spoke to The News about his daughter’s ordeal …said his strong religious beliefs kept him from reporting Weberman when he heard of the attacks.

The father was assured that Weberman would stop counseling girls — and was shocked when charges were lodged against the counselor in February 2011.

The News found five additional people who said they were aware of Weberman’s misconduct years before he was arrested.…

Prosecutors…stated in court they are aware of four married women and two underaged girls who were bedded by Weberman. The News has since found four more.…

The list of victims identified by prosecutors and found by The News includes at least four married women now ranging in age from their 20s to their 40s — three of whom he counseled. The other lived in his building.

The other six victims are not married, but all of them went to him initially for counseling…

In a separate op-ed, Brooklyn DA Charles Hynes writes about the Weberman victim who did press charges:

When Nechemya Weberman is sentenced this week, an investigation and trial that divided a Brooklyn community for almost three years will come to an end.The victim in this case showed extraordinary courage during her four days of testimony. This wasn’t just one victim or a case of her word against his. She was speaking for all who have suffered abuse but have been intimidated and forced into silence by scare tactics that support the abuser and discard the victim.Certainly, it would have made for a better case if more victims were willing to press charges — but she was one of the finest witnesses a prosecutor can have.Few people are as confident and as intelligent and as clear-thinking as this heroic, young woman.…

Coming up: Ten more mezuzah affixing ceremonies!

There are more like him in the satmerer community mostly molesters and rapists,to degenearate to webermans level is truly unbeleivably evil and on he part of the community indifferent to the sufferings of innocent children, this community is like sodom and gemora .

Jancsi
The community is like Sodom and Gemora... And you, my friend, are a schmuck.

May he become the favorite in prison. Night after night and day after day may he be repeatedly sodomized and beaten.

Maybe then he'll understand the trust that he betrayed and the victimization of the women under his dubious care.

@better than you:

No, Jancsi is someone who knows first hand what he's talking about over many years and on the inside. Do you honestly think the Sitra D'Achra knows what it really is? Of course not. That's what makes it so convincing. Look at yourself and at Satmar really well. To be a true ben Avrohom Avini you must rebel even against your own Father like he did.

Better than you-How else can you define it a community that harbours molesters and persecutes victims it crystal clear to me that youre leaders are murderers of innocent helpless children,i know it first hand i was molested also.

Better Than You- And the community which protects sexual abusers, call victims whores and threatens anyone who reports their crimes is not like Sodom and Gemora? Worthless cretin

vin is not posting this as of yet lets see how satmar spins this

janci
u r such an ass, u never add anything to the conversations besides unintelligible garbage.
Fuck u dumb asshole

One small step towards elevating the level of discourse on this blog would be to ban a poster who can't deliver his message without stooping this low. Start with this character - let's be rid of him.

If you read the article in the NY Daily News, this Rabbi operated
EXACTLY like that piece of shit Rabbi in New Hempstead/Monsey..who
hurt hundreds of women and girls.
Rabbi "Piece of Shit" M. T. Too bad T. didn't get jail time.

Seymour:

VIN has been ignoring a number of topics of late. Luke

Remarkable turnaround by Hynes; I guess there was just no way he was able to sweep this one under the rug. Nasty little mess he has under the proverbial rug, huh?

the sentencing is gonna b a juicy one .

let's count the decades !

it's gonna b lots of cheers and celebration.

who's next ?

legal question can a judge take this into account when sentencing weberman

Better than you,at least jancsibacsi is not a degenerate paedophile like oh so many in your ''heilige'' kehillot!You shameless imbecile.

Jancsi, I know you're not bothered by the dimwits whose guilt is pricked by your post, and that's yet another reason to admire you!

Eli, what me messiah--Thanks for youre support ,you are right i know a normal rational person would not attack me,and those who do attack me are loosers they know it,i am unfased by their attack i know and all you who are rational reasonable human beings that to attack someone who went through a trauma like that is pure viciousness and evil thanks to all who came to defend me from indifference.

The well known "kabbala" pickup line ("we were together in a previous gilgul") probably originated with the Sabateian spinoff group called the Frankists.Is Weberman the latest "gilgul" of the Frankist movement of whom are still active trying to bring down Yiddishkeit???

Let the victims take up arms. Then let's see who harrasses whom. Pass the popcorn.

When writing that this animal was a counsellor and counselled others, please use quotation marks. He is not a counsellor and did not counsel. He is an abuser and he abused.

Weberman is usually referred to as a "therapist". But I think there is a small typographical error here - a space has been left out. It should be "the rapist".

Therapist will get off an appeal. OR
The rapist will get off on a peel ...

PS why would anyone cheer? It's a tragedy of the highest magnitude. The victims don't get better. He certainly isn't cured. The streets may be safer and others deterred but it's hardly a cause for joy and celebration. Just one big crying shame.

DOVID X,
With the help of family and friends...family with love and understanding and friends who believe the victim...and support the victim....THEY CAN GET BETTER.
I don't know how much better....l o n g road...many regrets....
but the pain is less when people don't SHUN THEM OR PUNISH THEM FOR TELLING THE TRUTH.
That Dovid X hurts more than the abuse. Or as much as the abuse.
Of course it's a crying shame that a man who proclaims to be religious does this but the victims can get better if not shunned by the community. It's called compassion...the victims need it by the barrel full. And I hope they get it. They certainly have my compassion.

We have mitzvos nichum aveilim, and just by ,showing up that you care and share their pain, it is a tremendous form of NICHUM to the aveilim.

Same applies with bikur cholim, and by acknowledging a Yiddishe neshumas pain,showing your face that you accept her just like any other undamaged tayere Yid, you are equal to any one of us is mamash mamash GEVALDIG and a hakoras hatov. It is invaluable while lifting her heart, worth a lot more than years of therapy. We owe it to her for being so bold, so unselfish and sacrificing for the klall to benefit the present and future precious kinderlech and their families. And that is everyones simcha that our children will be safe. All the rest are the means that the authorities do to prevent from recurring.

Lev leachtenu,

beautifully said.
