A friend writes:
Guess who showed his face in Boca Raton on Sukot.
It was "Rabbi" Baruch Lanner - convicted sex offender.
He was greeted by some people as royalty. Others
kept their distance.
He wandered around the synagogue and I felt like
warning people to watch over their children.
Lanner was in town to visit his son and family.
Boca Raton is the home of Rabbi Perry Tirschwell
who was formerly Lanner's chief disciple and testified
on his behalf at the trial.
The other person testifying for Lanner was Rabbi Matt Tropp.
Lanner looks like a tired broken old man.
He shouldn't be allowed to enter synagogues without
a full time escort.
After all, doesn't he still deny his guilt.
