A 59-year-old Brooklyn rabbi was arrested Wednesday for allegedly trying to solicit sex online from a police officer he thought was a 14-year-old girl.

Rabbi Nathan David (Nosson Dovid) Rabinowich – who runs a synagogue along with the Ahavath Torah Institute, which sells antique Jewish religious books and autographs of famous rabbis, and a tour company called Jewish Heritage Tours,  all from his Midwood home – sent explicit electronic messages and also arranged to meet the “14-year-old girl” for sex in Queens. He used the online screen names “NYC-NORMAL100” and “NORMALGENTNYC.”

Rabinowich was charged with four sex crimes, including attempted rape. He was arraigned last night. Bail was set at $50,000.

His next court date is scheduled for March 7.

Yet again we see the dangers of the Internet. It is high time to institute and promote and create the technology necessary to protect children and vulnerable people from the internet dangers. We have laws to prevent drinking for underage kids yet a blind eye is being turned to this new form of danger.

Danny,

Should we also ban the phone and the mail because they have also been used to solicit sex? Perhaps you advocate cutting off people's tongues and fingers to prevent using speech and writing to avoid soliciting sex.

the guy was a pervert and the world has loads of folks with internet who do not use it to solicit sex with minors.

Is it the yeshiva ahavas Torah on nostrand ave?

He wore a baseball hat, baruch hashem, so no one would know he was Jewish. It's always important to blend in when you're committing statutory rape so that you don't commit, chalila vachas, a chilul hashem, lo aleinu.

Frumma wearing baseball caps can also be found in bars all over NYC. They really seem to think nobody will notice they are Jewish.

The problem is not the internet. The problem is rabbis on the internet. Keep rabbis off the internet, and the children will be ok.

His website refers to him as Rabbi Dr. N. D. Rabinowich

you know what?
i really miss the good old days of the tendler fiscos and sex scandals.

why cant we have more tendler exposes?

shmarya?

please hook us up...they were oh, so much more interesting!

he's my cousin. whole family's shocked and sickened.

Hypocrisy, all in the name of their religion. Disgusting.

Yet another Brooklyn fundraiser on the calendar for March. Sad. Luke.

You can spot an Orthodox Jew wearing a baseball cap from a mile away. They think they can blend in, but they stand out because they're wearing the rest of the Jewniform.

it would seem the man is not sefardi, amazing ....

Yochanan-But you must admit it does halp to have a baseball cap on to hide youre jewishness no?i say at least he didnt go with a long payes a lond black coat.

Is it me or are we averaging one arrest a day?

Sad. Luke.

>His website refers to him as Rabbi Dr. N. D. Rabinowich

He has a PhD from NYU.

Jancsi,
I must say, you are wise. Wisdom, my friend, wisdom is you. You are like the great Fakhirs in my country, who attain mental heights not reachable by ordinary men. They do so by having intimate relations with goats, sheep, men, boys, and llamas. This frees the mind and releases it to attain greatness. You must do as they do. Live long and prosper, great one, and may the spirit of Vishnu forever reside in your nasal passages and rectum.

When Derek Jeter wants to go out and be incognito, would he wear a shtreimel?

What are the goyim thinking about rabbis these days???

What next??

I've heard that the "rabbis" give a heter to use internet for business. Maybe they should issue guidelines for types of business too.

Kulvinder Sehansera---Stop making an ass out of youreself here go and do youreself a favor hang youreself.

Jancsi,
Do not be ashamed of your bestial proclivities, in fact, you should be proud, and where it like a badge of honor. You love all of God's creations.

He published a thesis on the responsa of one of the geonim, albeit without much analysis or commentary.

Kulvinder Sehansera-Only a person with such intense vengefull hate can write such insane things here,youre tottaly of youre rockers mentally deranged go get help before youre hate consumes you.

Is it me or are we averaging one arrest a day?

Sad. Luke.

it sure seems like it. what has become of us?

Kulvinder Sehansera -

let me guess...another charedi who cant stand the truth jancsi speaks?

@ Wool Silk Cotton, sports star and rock superstar | February 15, 2013 at 10:34 AM -

Ha!!

at least hes into girls no boys....next time make sure shes over 18 and enjoy...if your veibel is not giving it at home..

I am almost sure that he dont eat strawberries.

Is Rabinowich officially on record as those condemning the use of internet?

Kulvinder
Right on, dude; right on.

Not to be overly pedantic, but is a fourteen year old really a child?

Audrey the Liberal:
YES!!!!! It is CHILD sexual abuse when a 59 year old man solicits sex from a 14 year old.

So what happened on March 7th?
