Brooklyn, NY - Ohel Denies Report That It Will Oppose Bill to Allow Victims in Old Cases to Name Abusers; Jewish Star Stands By Its Story

Brooklyn, NY - The Jewish social service organization Ohel has decided it will oppose legislation that would allow victims of childhood sexual abuse currently beyond the statute of limitations to bring their cases to court. Agudath Israel of America and Torah Umesorah, its affiliated educational arm have announced their opposition to the open-window provision under consideration in Albany.

 

Ohel CEO David Mandel declined to confirm Ohel’s position, which was described to The Jewish Star by two reliable and well-informed sources.

 

“It is simply not a matter of a yes or no issue of supporting the Markey bill or the Lopez bill as one can be supportive of major portions of legislation without supporting it in its entirety, and at the same time remain true to their convictions,” Mandel said.

 

Mandel was referring to legislation sponsored by Assemblywoman Marge Markey (D-Queens) that would extend the civil statute of limitations by five years as well as open a year-long window to bring civil cases that currently are beyond the statute. A competing bill sponsored by Assemblyman Vito Lopez (D-Brooklyn) would extend the civil statute of limitations by two years but does not include the yearlong window.

In a statement released Tuesday, Agudath Israel of America and Torah Umesorah, the National Society for Hebrew Day Schools, indicated that they would “have no objection to legislation designed to give victims of abuse greater recourse against perpetrators.”

 

However, Agudah and Torah Umesorah “vigorously oppose” legislation that would do away with the statute of limitations, even temporarily for a year, since that “could subject schools and other vital institutions to ancient claims and capricious litigation, and place their very existence in severe jeopardy.”

 

Agudah acknowledges a conflict of interest related to a lawsuit against Yeshiva Torah Temimah in Brooklyn, and Yehuda Kolko, a longtime rebbe there. The suit lists an Agudah-owned summer camp for boys, Camp Agudah, Inc., as a defendant. The suit was filed in Brooklyn Federal Court in 2006. It alleges that Kolko molested David Framowitz, identified in the suit as John Doe No. 1, while he attended Camp Agudah in the summer between his seventh and eighth grade years.

 

“It’s not anything that was ever hidden,” Rabbi Dovid Zwiebel, Agudath Israel’s executive vice president, explained.”

 

“The camp is the same name. Notwithstanding that this group of rabbonim who sat on this question for the last number of weeks is among the most senior and respected rabbonim and roshei yeshiva, when you get to that level, chances are you’re going to be affiliated with institutions that operate programs that young people participate in. It’s impossible to imagine [that] a question of this nature should not be considered by the leaders of the community simply because they are affiliated with institutions.”

 

Rabbi Zwiebel added: “If we’re sinister, we should surely do a much better job of covering our tracks.”

 

Agudath Israel’s position is a general one meant to apply across the nation, according to Rabbi Zwiebel. Practically speaking, however, Agudah’s position puts it in opposition to the Child Victims Act bill, legislation sponsored by Assemblywoman Markey. Instead, Agudah will direct lobbying efforts to support the Lopez bill. It does not have the open-window provision leading some critics to refer to is as “The Hide the Predator Act.”

 

Marci Hamilton, a Yeshiva University law professor and author of Justice Denied: What America Must Do to Protect Its Children, blasted Agudah’s position, which she described as “indifferent to the safety of children.” Similar legislation passed in California and Delaware led to the identification of 360 previously unknown sexual predators, she said.

“Without the window, the predators remain in the shadows so that they can groom more children for abuse,” Hamilton explained. “A stand against the window is a stand for the predators.”

 

Michael Lesher, an attorney who represents a number of victims of childhood abuse, criticized Ohel.

 

“If Ohel really cares about children then it really ought to care about their freedom to seek justice when they need it,” he said, noting, “If they [Ohel] have nothing to hide,” then they shouldn’t be in “direct opposition to the bill.”

 

The legislation has garnered a complicated response from elsewhere in the Jewish community. The United Jewish Organization of Williamsburg - closely tied to the United Talmudical Academy, which faces a $5 million dollar lawsuit for allegedly harboring a sexual predator - has also publicly objected to the window. Joel Engelman, the plaintiff in that suit, is also beyond the statute of limitations.

 

The Orthodox Union has not taken a public position on either bill. At a rally in Albany earlier this week the representatives of a number of Jewish organizations joined Christian groups to push for the Markey legislation.

 

And Agudah’s position has drawn criticism from prominent members of the Jewish community, as well.

 

Rabbi Yosef Blau, mashgiach ruchani (spiritual guidance counselor) of Yeshiva University’s Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary (RIETS) and an outspoken activist against sexual abuse inside the Orthodox community, said that “the old system does not work” and the only way to fix it is “a communal responsibility to bite the bullet.”

 

“This is the only way that institutions will take responsibility and abusers will not be given the opportunity to move from one place to another,” Rabbi Blau asserted. “Institutions that have been completely negligent should be sued.”

 

Shmuly Yanklowitz, founder of the Orthodox social justice group Uri L’Tzedek, was equally adamant.

 

“Halacha does not have a statute of limitations,” Yanklowitz maintained. “What is the fear of organizations of allowing the justice system to work? If they have been taking responsibility for their educators and religious leaders then there should be no threat to their organization’s financial stability.”

 

In a letter distributed on April 22nd, Assemblyman Dov Hikind, whose campaign to end sexual abuse inside the Orthodox community helped bring the issue of sexual abuse to the forefront, asked Agudah to reassess its position and work out a compromise.

 

“Achieving justice for the victims need not come about as a result of the financial demise of our greatest institutions,” Hikind wrote, “but neither can we forsake those who have already sacrificed far too much.”

 

**UPDATE** 10:30 PM Ohel has sent the below PR after we reprinted the article from the Jewish Star.

 

The recently published article written by The Jewish Star and published online by various media outlets is false.

 

At no time in the conversation with the reporter was any statement made that OHEL was opposing any legislation – and nor by any other source of authority.

 

On an issue that is so important, and is being understandably followed by so many - it is wholly irresponsible and unprofessional to publish a piece that is devoid of truth.

 

Sexual abuse is a heinous act and drives passionate emotions especially given the nature of victims – children and the most vulnerable amongst us. OHEL has been at the forefront, working exhaustively in driving awareness, education, protecting our children and providing support services to victims.

 

We must resist the all-too-easy answers, and untruthful headlines, that while grabbing attention - can turn us into victimizers.

 

The Jewish Star got it wrong.

OHEL will provide its own written position on this issue.

 

**UPDATE** 11:30 PM Jewish Star firmly stands behind Its story. in a revised version to the story the Star printed below.

 

The Star stands by its online report that two reliable sources characterized Ohel’s position as opposed to the Markey bill.

כישלון לעדה החרדית במערכה על החניון
 

השבת הייתי בירושלים והלכתי לראות את ההפגנה. מה אומר לכם ומה אדבר כבר מזמן שלא ראיתי את העדה החרדית בעליבות שכזו.
זה נראה כמו מערכה על כבוד העדה החרדית ולא על כבוד השבת.
בכל אופן נראה שאיך שלא מסתכלים על זה בשתי המערכות יש כישלון.

To: Asher Lipner <lipnera@gmail.com>

It is important for me to be very careful and detailed as to the accuracy of the information contained in my emails.

Therefore, I want to explain a couple of things about the OU.

Firstly, after the Baruch Lanner situation was exposed, they DID do an investigation and published a summary of the findings in which they acknowledged both that Lanner was a molester and that NCSY and the OU had some responsibility for it happening under their auspices. Indeed they actually helped with this report the two survivors who prosecuted and had Lanner covicted and jailed. For this they deserve tremendous credit and we can all be proud of them.

Furthermore while they have not backed the Markey bill, the OU have not opposed it the way that Agudah and Torah Umesorah has. Their difficulty endorsing it was explained to me by an OU leader as due to pressure to work with the Catholic Church who are our "allies" in getting money from the state for yeshivas. Some people feel that the OU shares the concern of TU and Aguda about the "lifeblood of the community" that could be hurt by organizations such as NCSY being sued for old cases such as Lanner.

My point was more of a general call to action. It is "Beyond the Markey Bill." We need our leaders to begin to expose ALL dangerous molesters. In Baltimore for example, I have been told, by a reliable source, that in the Agudah shul the Shomrim regularly put up pictures of convicted sex offenders who live in the neighborhood to warn parents, but do NOT include the "frum" convicts. This has to stop.

Whether we work with Vicki as a fellow Jew, who has saved many Orthodox Jewish children and supported many Orthodox Jewish survivors, or we want to be proactive as Orthodox Jews and follow her lead but do it ourselves, that can and should be debated. But the main point is we need to start doing what she is doing. Bringing awareness to the community of those who are dangerous to our children.

I call on the OU, the RCA, Agudas Yisroel Torah Umesorah, The Iggud Harrabanim, and all the Vaadei Haraabanan of Queens, Five Towns, Baltimore, Passaic, etc. to protect Jewish children and not the pedophiles who are roydef them. And I propose that the Jewish Board of Advocates for Children lead the way. We have been involved thanks to Elliot working with Rabbi Horowitz in apprehending one molester in Queens. We need to do more. The system works if we work it. We need to publicize the molesters we know of, and we need to publicly support those victims who want to name their molesters, but are afraid to do so because of community pressure. We need to publicize Rav Elyashiv's psak about going to the police, and the scientific research about serial molesters not being curable. And we, of course, have to keep on truckin' with our lobbying work for the Position Paper to mandate safety in our schools.

Please share questions thoughts and feelings with me on this issue.

Vicki is right; we would have all been shoved into the gas chambers together. We share an intense bond that shall never be broken. We are survivors of collective persecution.

I have done a lot of personal self examination and would like to publicly extend an olive branch to Vicki Polin and the Awareness Center. If I made mistakes, as Jews I urge you to give me the chance to ask for forgiveness. I lost a daughter in the cruelest and oddest way and I've been out of my mind with grief for 23 years. If I've erred please cut me some slack.

I want to work on healthy solutions to our community problem. I stand ready to help. I recall that Vicki and I way back in 2003 started to work together toward solutions. I put her in contact with Stephanie Saul of NY Newsday and due to Vicki's diligence we were successful in getting a huge story on Bryks. Vicki has persisted admirably. We were very close until something happened and I don't know what that was. But I do want to mend the fences so that we can all move forward. I will probably edit another book and would be honored to have Vicki Polin contribute a chapter. I want to stand with her and fight the good fight. Vicki, may I join your Advisory Board?

A good Shabbos to all!!

Asher and everyone else,

The Awareness Center got it's start because when I was at Neve I started seeing the problems of child molestation in the orthodox world. This was back in 1999. The Awareness Center refuses to turn away any Jew no matter what movement in Judaism they are from or currently a part of. By splintering/ fragmenting off into different groups we loose our power. The majority of individuals who are on the Board of Directors of The Awareness Center are frum. At one time in my life I would have been one of the frum individuals connected to our organization, yet as time has gone on, I chose to return to my roots.

Instead of recreating what is already out there, we should all be working together. What ever happened to the concept "A Jew, is a Jew, is a Jew. Hitler would have put us all in the ovens together, as will those with power and control. If we stick together work as a team things will get better. Those who have attacked the work of The Awareness Center and who have attacked my personhood are the same individuals who have been protecting sexual predators for years. By splintering off into subgroups you are feeding their desire to keep the status quo.

Thank you to Vicki for sending us the video on Rabbi Bryks.

I wanted to add that Rabbi Bryks is only one of several "rabbis" who molest children who are known to the Agudah, Torah Umesorah, the RCA and the OU. There has never been a public announcement from these leaders on any of the following:

Rabbi Efraim Bryks, Please see the video below.

Rabbi Moshe Eiseman, Mashgiach of Ner Israel Rabbinical College

Rabbi Aron Tendler, "Resigned" Teacher at Yeshiva University L.A.

Rabbi Baruch Lanner, Convicted child molester of hundreds at NCSY

Rabbi Benzion Sobel, "Resigned" Rosh Yeshiva of Neve Tzion

Rabbi Yehuda Kolko, "Placed on leave" by Torah Tmima, convicted of endangering the welfare of children after a plea bargain, also a counselor for many years at the camp of Agudas Yisroel

Rabbi Avraham Mondrowitz, awaiting extradition from Israel

Rabbi Avraham Reichman, still teaching in Satmar Yeshivah


Rabbi Mattis Weinberg, banned from Chinuch in America currently molesting children in Yerushalayim


Rabbi Eliezer Esiegrau, Hired as Principal of the Sheris Hapleita school in Baltimore despite allegations of molesting his daughter and others, see The Awareness Center. The police investigators said they believe the allegations but could not get any cooperation from the rabbis in Baltimore to conduct a real investigation.

Rabbi Jacob Max, recently convicted of a recent sex offense at age 85 after decades of getting away with using his popularity as a rabbi.

Rabbi Lipa Brenner, convicted serial child molester, living in Brooklyn, with no publicity to warn residents, even though he is on internet registry's but many frum people don't have the internet.

Our leaders have not made a public statement about ANY of these dangers to the children in our community. Many people are starting to therefore feel that the Aguda and Torah Umesorah and the OU not coming out strongly FOR the Markey bill is NOT only due to financial considerations (which is a moral disaster in its own right) but is because our Gedolim continue to believe strongly that to cover up for a rabbi molester is more important to do than to protect children. Rabbi Shimshy Sherrer the son of Rabbi Moshe Sherrer A'H, told my friend who was involved in confronting Rabbi Kolko and Torah Tmimah, that according to his father's understanding of the Gedolim of the LAST generation, it would be better to try to stop Kolko from molesting WITHOUT removing him from the classroom, because of the "Chilul Hashem". I highly doubt that Rav Ruderman, Reb Moshe Fienstein and Reb Yaakov Kaminetsky felt this way, but that is what our current Rabbanim have received as their mesorah. Rabbi Neuberger, A"H, Menahel of Ner Yisroel and close friend and partner with Rabbi Sherrer, certainly felt this way as he personally covered up for Rabbi Eiseman, Rabbi Eisegrau, Reb Matis Weinberg, Rabbi Tendler and others.

That this attitude of covering up for molesters is NOT only limited to the problem of yeshivas being sued is proven explicity by the fact that In several of the above cases, there is no yeshiva to sue. Some happened in California (Weinberg and Tendler) some not in a Yeshivah (Brenner and Mondrowitz) and some in Baltimore where the statute of limitations will NEVER be changed because the Catholics "own" the state (Eiseman, Eisegrau, Max). Rabbi Sobel was recently hired as a "fundraiser" by Migdal Or, and honored on the front page of the Jerusalem Post. Publicizing his danger would also not have anything to do with the Markey bill, as he molested in Israel.

The bottom line is that our leaders continue to be more concerned with the image of our community than with people's lives.

If not for Vicki Polin and The Awareness Center, and UOJ, both vilified by our Orthodox leadership, there would be no chance for Jewish parents to know who to keep their children away from. When will the OU, the Agudah and Torah Umesorah start protecting children and not pedophiles? What will it take? Even rabbihorowitz.com , where Rabbi Horowitz has courageously spoken out about Rabbi Mondrowitz (for some reason the one unlucky rabbi-molester chosen, even though not yet convicted) and Ebstein who is NOT a rabbi so its easier to publicize, refuses to do this basic service to protect Jewish children. Although many, many frum parents look to him for guidance, if he is not going to do this, for whatever reason, then perhaps it is time for the Jewish Board of Advocacy for Children to take this project on and lead our community once again on the issue of protecting children. A frum version of the Awareness Center.

Please let me know what you think. I am also considering a letter writing campaign with an ad in the Jewish Week and Jewish Press asking people to do exactly what aseemblyman Dov Hikind has done: Respectfully request that the Agudah and Torah Umesorah reverse their position on the Markey bill. Now is the time. It would be such a big Kiddush Hashem if our community would stand together as one to fight the Catholic Church Reshaim YM"SH who condoned the murder of one million of our children in the Holocaust, and are now standing in the way of us protecting our children from soul murder.

אתר Ynet מדווח כי בית המשפט לענייני משפחה בקריות כי אב יפצה את 2 בנותיו ואת רעייתו בסך של מיליון ושש מאות אלף ש``ח, בגין ההתעללות המינית והפיזית אשר התעלל בהן.

האב הורשע באונס בתו הבכורה ונגזרו עליו 14 שנות מאסר. בנוסף, נהג האב באלימות כלפי בתו הקטנה וכן כלפי רעייתו.

במסגרת המשפט, נקבע כי לבת הבכורה נותרה נכות נפשית בשיעור של 30% בגין מעשיו של האב ונפסקו לה פיצויים בסך של למעלה ממיליון ש``ח.

לאחות הקטנה, אשר ספגה מאביה השפלות ומעשי אלימות, נפסקו פיצויים בסך של 170,000 ש``ח.

לאשתו לשעבר של האב, נקבעה נכות נפשית בשיעור של 50% בגין מעשי ההשפלות והאלימות של האב ונפסקו לה פיצויים בסך של 420,000 ש``ח.

לפני מספר שבועות דיווחנו כי בית המשפט המחוזי בחיפה קבע
שדוד אשר אנס את 2 אחיינותיו במשך שנים רבות, יפצה אותם בסך של 2 מיליון ש``ח, בתוספת 400,000 ש``ח הוצאות משפט.
