Stand With the Survivors

Our Children are not Hefker (Part II)

By: Rabbi Yakov Horowitz

Sixteen months ago, Project YES conducted a "Stand with the Victim" campaign to give support and chizuk to the family of a young child who was allegedly molested by Meir Dascalowitz. Dascalowitz was charged with nearly 100 felony charges of sexual abuse, and the family of the victim, which courageously stepped forward to press charges, was being subjected to brutal pressure and threats from community members in an attempt to silence them.

By all accounts, efforts to offer emotional support for the survivor’s family were most productive. The hearing room was packed with many dozens of us – so much so that Dascalowitz’s hearing was moved to the first on the docket in order to clear the courtroom. We presented the family members with over 300 printed emails and blog posts from our readers worldwide, which clearly provided them with an enormous boost of chizuk.

We are once again asking our readers to display a similar show of support for the brave family of the young woman who was allegedly abused by Nechemya Weberman (Kings County Supreme Court Case # 01589-2011) in light of the pressure being directed at them from certain community members who would want the charges dropped.

The hearing will take place in the Kings County Supreme Court, 320 Jay Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201 on Thursday, June 14th at 9:00 a.m.

Weberman is entitled to the presumption of innocence and we must reserve judgment until the conclusion of the judicial process. Nonetheless, research indicates that the overwhelming majority of children who come forward with abuse allegations are telling the truth. Think about it. Why would anyone in their right mind make a claim of being abused if it didn't happen? All the more so because there is unfortunately a stigma attached to the individuals and the families of victims of abuse. Going public and helping to get the perpetrator apprehended in order to protect the lives of other innocent children, often comes at great personal cost to the survivors and their families. With all this in mind, we must stand with them until this is sorted out.

Moreover, in this particular case, there are very troubling facts on the ground clearly challenging to the most unbiased observer. Weberman was acting as a child therapist with no training or degree. By his own admission, having secluded himself with this young lady on numerous occasions over a period of years, he was in clear violation of basic Hilchos Yichud .

Whether this particular individual is innocent or guilty is for the court to decide. We must as a community deal with the very real problem of intimidation and the banning and shunning of the victim. This, in effect, abuses the victim a second time. A prime example of this happened five years ago. A childhood friend asked Project YES to assist a young man in our community who was in terrible shape and addicted to hard drugs. It was immediately evident to me that he had been molested as a young child, and we encouraged him and later his parents to report this to the authorities. During the initial meeting with his parents, they expressed genuine concern and even fear of pursuing this matter, as they were warned that friends of this well-connected perpetrator will harm them or worse. (The warning had been issued to them earlier through back channels.)

During our initial meeting with the Queens District Attorney, I mentioned the “intimidation factor” and explained to them how these things work – the 3:00 a.m. anonymous phone calls, pizza deliveries in the middle of the night, on and on. We were assured that we would have the full resources and protection of the DA’s office and the police department, and they most certainly “walked the walk” by supporting the family every step of the way. The man was arrested, and during his first appearance in court, the judge practically yelled at the molester in court and warned him that the slightest act of intimidation against the victim’s family would be assumed to have come from him. He was told by the judge in no uncertain terms that his bail will be revoked and charges would be added if there were any acts of bullying or threats directed at the victim’s family. (For more details, click here and here.)We ought to be advocating that this level of support and protection be offered to these Brooklyn victims who are coming forward as well.

With all this in mind, we respectfully ask our readers to:

1) Post a comment of support below in the thread following this column or send an email to yhprojectyes@gmail.com. Please list your real name and the city where you live, to send a clear message to those conducting the terror campaign against the victim’s family that we are not intimidated by them. These comments will be printed and presented to the family at the hearing.

2) Please try and attend the hearing in person if at all possible. It is extraordinarily important that we have a huge turnout supporting the victim and her family. We need hundreds of people there, to send a loud and clear message to all parties that Our Children are not Hefker.

3) Respectfully email the Brooklyn DA’s office (SCHMETJ@brooklynda.org is the email address of Jerry Schmetterer, Director of Public Information at the DA’s office) and express your support for 24/7 protection of the victim’s family and the robust investigation and prosecution of the folks who are intimidating them. Additionally, express your support for a swift resolution of the criminal charges, as the stalling and delay just allow those pressuring the victims more time for intimidation. (Nechemya Weberman was arrested on February 23, 2011.)

Kindly take a moment to review the lines of last year’s post here for a more detailed explanation regarding the moral and practical need to stand with the victim.

Thank you for your assistance and support of our efforts on behalf of abuse survivors.

Yakov Horowitz

P.S. Over the past few years, as a public service, Project YES has been conducting teleconference calls in the month of June designed to help parents effectively speak to their children about personal space and safety before sending them off to summer camp. This year’s teleconference call will take place Thursday, June 7th at 9:30 p.m. EDT. To join, kindly call in to (209) 647-1600 Participant Code: 827269

(Here is a link to a child safety teleconference call we ran in 2011, and a recording of this 2012 session will be available on our website www.kosherjewishparenting.com or by dialing (209) 647-1699 Participant Code: 827269 after the call is concluded. )

Once again you show the courage of your convictions. It can't be easy to fly in the face of an established Chasidic community in Williamsburg that so strongly supports the alleged sex abuser, Rabbi Nechemia Weberman. You may be getting a 2:00 AM Pizza delivery yourself! Thank G-d there are people like you who are willing to do more than talk about it.

7. Victims have rights     5/30/12 - 6:31 PM
Michael Lesher - Passaic NJ - michaellesher@optonline.net

That the defendant enjoys a presumption of innocence is true -- but it's cant of the nastiest variety to insist on that principle without extending the same presumption to the accuser. Support for victims means rejecting the ugly libel that, by reporting heinous crimes, the victims are themselves criminals, "guilty" even when they tell the perfect truth.

Support for victims means support for truth -- and for decency.

Elliot Pasik - Long Beach, NY - efpasik@aol.com

Dear Survivor,

Your future is bright and glorious. You are an inspiration to the Jewish community, and all Americans. You are saving lives. Your prosecution of this evil man will deter other crimes. We believe you, not him. We believe he is guilty. And if and when the court pronounces his guilt, and if and when he is sentenced to the long prison term he deserves, he will not commit any other crime. He will be in prison. Lives will be saved. And if and when he is released from prison, his name, as a registered sex offender, will appear on the Internet sex offender registries. He will never work at a normal job again. He will never work near children.

And that is because of you. Hakadosh Baruch Hu should bless you and your family.

It's about time the ostriches get their heads out of the sand (clean language).For years the Orthodox Jewish community has tried to cover up the sins of the few. This mentality of not washing our laundry in a public laundramat is destroying Klal Yisroel. Vicious criminals are getting away with murder and destroying our youth. We need more people like you who are not embarrased to tell the "Emes". Why should the overwhelming majority suffer for the sins of the few? Yasher Koach, keep up your great work.

The people who do these evil acts are the lowest of the low. They engage in acts that are deserving of the death penalty and ruin the lives of many fine people.

We offer the accuser full support and will pray for their victory and healing.

May anyone who supports the evil doers learn the falsehood of their ways and if not may they suffer the punishments of those that support death penalty issurim and the destruction of pure yiddishe neshamos.

15. We Stand With You     5/30/12 - 7:16 PM
Sherree Belsky

To the victim of Nechemya Weberman,

I can't even begin to tell you how much I admire you for coming forward and exposing this vile excuse for a human being. It takes great courage on your part to step out of the role of victim and take on the identity of survivor. Especially at such a young age. Kudos to you, your parents and your support system for taking all the right and most necessary steps in handling this terrible and unfortunate situation. No one, neither child nor adult should ever be forced into such a vulnerable position and taken advantage of in such a horrific way, especially by such an imposter who poses as a religious, frum, emesdik and ehrliche individual.

Not only is his sickness out of control and unmanageable but one can clearly see how his ego has also grown too big for his neshoma. It is appalling that he parades as some sort of therapist without any credentials whatsoever. It is appalling that the yeshiva system did NOT learn anything from the Mondrowitz disaster. In addition to berating your mother for correctly questioning him about Yichud and forcing her to give him a written letter of apology proves even moreso that he is not only sick but pure evil. He did NOT take opportunities as he could catch them, he planned his attacks well and did not let anything get in his way. How could anyone condone that? How can anyone excuse that away? How can anyone who even questions the validity of a child's accusation excuse away such a response to a most logical inquiry from a concerned mother?

I can't even begin to imagine how frightened you were and how much you suffered because of him. I only wish that you can understand that he is pure evil and that men like him are not the norm, not that there aren't others like him, unfortunately there are but they are not the majority of the population. Especially not the Jewish population or the G-d fearing population, and especially not those that truly believe in and follow the Torah.

Hashem has helped many survivors succeed and he will be with you throughout this whole ordeal. He will send you as many shelichim as necessary to help you heal and move forward with your life. Please do not allow this rasha to steal any more from you than he already has. As they say, success is the best revenge. The best that you can do is reach for the stars and be whomever you choose to be. Go as high and as far as you wish and you will succeed in everything and anything you choose to pursue while hopefully this monster will rot in jail like the piece of garbage that he is.

The more you believe in yourself and realize your goodness and your potential, the more you win over him. You are not alone, not today, not tomorrow and not ever. Your story will never be forgotten. You will always be a hero to other victims of this vile animal, and a hero to other victims in general who are not brave enough to find their voice. You have my respect and admiration along with that of many, many others. You will be victorious in your mission to stop this monster and there will be many of us there beside you. You are not in this alone. And please remember that D.A. Hynes came out publicly saying that he will go after anyone that harasses abuse victims and gets in the way of justice. So don't be afraid to call him directly. Don't speak to anyone else. If he doesn't take your call tell the person on the other end that you don't trust anyone else and if he doesn't take your call, you will call the media for protection.

Please understand that you are in charge of your own choices and your own future, so make good choices for yourself and dont allow anyone ever to control you again.

19. If Weberman were a mensch     5/30/12 - 8:06 PM
Yerachmiel Lopin

I want to thank you for doing the difficult work of bringing charges against this tznius faker. We all owe you a great deal for helping make Williamsburg safer for other children.

If Nechemyah Weberman were a mensch he would apologize and the first step toward tshuvah. But instead he only makes things worse. In the end he will spend more time in jail.

I admire your courage and I believe your courage and time will help you in recovering from the way he misused his position of trust.

Sadly, so many in Williamsburg won't face the truth about him. Many others know the truth and don't trust him but still think it is better if he stays out of jail. This is sad but I do believe that because of you and others like you this will eventually change. Not soon enough. But eventually it will change and when that finally happens people will be ashamed about the way they behaved. Eventually, you, and others like you will be recognized and appreciated for helping to protect children.

In the meantime, know there are many of us that already admire you and will try and support you while respecting your privacy.

31. If survivors are able to stand up to the pressure tactics with our support . . .     5/30/12 - 10:36 PM
Moshe P - Brooklyn

How much deterrence power would be added if one more survivor successfully stands up to perpetrarator's bullying tactics -- with the community's (our) support! As one then another victim will stand up -- with our support -- and face the bullies down, how much the bleak "landscape" will change for the better.

This is certainly a most important "tafkid" for us all; to join victims, to support them, and to help them feel supported, protected, and no longer isolated.

I am sorry you have to undergo such pain, but thank you for standing up to the pressure. Our youngest witnessed molestation by his first grade rebbe but was too frightened to say anything, and we did not find out until the rebbe was "retired"--with a golden parachute. Then word went out to the parents and our son finally told us what had been going on. Yaakov in Flatbush

It is scary enough to testify as a "victim," even without community intimidation. With intimidation it can be terrifying. Be strong, and know that many, many people are with you.

Although I - from this distance - must presume the innocence of the accused until the trial is finished, I absolutely support your effort for justice. May you enjoy a long, healthy life with menuchas hanefesh!

35. we need a better way     5/30/12 - 11:42 PM
Bassie

Dear Daughter of Israel,

I don't read the papers and blogs...but I read Rabbi Horowitz' message and my heart goes out to all involved. May Hashem give you the support, strength and salvation to heal and to find goodness and love in His world. And may Klal Yisrael come to understand Rabbi Horowitz' message -- the need to protect those who need to be protected and to protest against abuse of any kind.

It is mind boggling how we run to battle for the lives of those accused as perpetrators because we don't want them or their families to suffer the humiliation. It is true - we don't want innocent people accused for no reason. But, the scale can't be tilted totally in that direction. We need understanding and care for the total devastation of victims and the havoc wreaked in their homes. I believe that we need to educate people to understand the extent to which abuse can destroy a person, the amount of havoc it wreaks in their entire family, the horrific pain they most often endure-many times for a lifetime...

If people would sit in a room with victims, hear their cries of anguish years and years later...if they would even come close to touching their pain, perhaps there would be more sympathy and more care. It is not about judging the accused. It is about allowing victims to speak and to seek appropriate action to prevent further harm to self or others, so that all victims have a voice and are no longer afraid to come forward. If someone is innocent, it is very sad that they should be accused and go through such an ordeal, but if we shut the mouths of victims and intimidate them and terrorize them and chase them out of town, something is very wrong. There are far too many korbanos already; we need a better way.

Thank you Rabbi Horowitz for your bravery.

37. Support for Victims and Their Families     5/31/12 - 12:19 AM
Chaim Twerski - Chicago/IL - chaimtwerski@gmail.com

I heard directly from a most esteemed Rosh Yeshiva and great leader of his generation, Rabbi Elya Svei zt"l, his dismay that sexual abuse is not being dealt with but, instead, is being swept under the carpet. He told me clearly that this refusal to acknowledge and deal with the problem is so terribly wrong and must be stopped. It has taken a while for this to happen, but it is only with the courage of people like you and your family that headway is finally being made to turn the tide. Those persons who would threaten or even discourage you from coming forth are partners to the crime. Know that for every one of them, there are ten who are on your side. Hopefully, many more will stand with you and participate in your fight for justice. May Hashem heal your wounds and help klal Yisroel remove this scourge from our community.

38. You can and will heal!     5/31/12 - 12:40 AM
Asher Lipner, Ph.D. - Brooklyn, NY

Dear Bas Yisroel and family,

Those who have bullied and intimidated victims of abuse and have protected and supported their molesters have brought eternal shame on the Jewish people. There is no greater Chillul Hashem imaginable.

Those, like you and all other victims who have publicized their molesters, by standing up for truth, righteousness and the protection of innocent children, are making the biggest Kiddush Hashem imaginable.

The fear and shame that the molesters try to provoke in the victims is often more traumatic than the actual abuse. The community's standing silent, and our leaders openly worrying more about the community's reputation than the victims, is also a betrayal of epic proportions. Not only are they culpable for the abuse and harm of Jewish children, but they are also abusing and perverting our Torah and our relationship with Hashem.

Healing can only begin when the truth is exposed. We are only as sick as our secrets. Through the courage you have shown by coming forward to protect others, both you and the whole community can begin to heal.

Throughout the process, it is extremely important to feel supported by friends and family and community members. Studies suggest that when a victim feels that support, even if justice is not achieved, they will feel better, whereas if they are forced to go it alone, then even with a conviction, they feel a hollow and lonely victory.

I am not sure if I will be able to be in court this time, but I was there on the day Weberman was arraigned. On that day, a brave friend of mine looked him in the eye and reminded him that Weberman had molested him in a mikvah many years ago.

Please know that you are supported by many. On a personal note, if you would like any help with the media, with the DA's office, or just for emotional support, please feel free to contact me through email, or ask Rabbi Horowitz for my telephone number.

Your bravery should stand as an aid for all the others who must fight everything and everyone they thought were friends, yet who fear man more than H'shem. Each time it will be easier, and your voice will join with all the others who demand justice, and are willing to face repudiation in order to save others from the vile acts of the perpetrator.

I might not be as courageous as you, but I will definitely have the courage to show my face in court to support you. Thank you again.

We all need to stand up for the victims, and work together as a community to deal with this problem once and for all.

We are a light unto the nations and we are suppose to show the world the proper way to act and live - and allowing bullys and abusers to get away with their actions is not something that a torah true Jew would or should allow.

49. Car pooling for the hearing     5/31/12 - 6:40 AM
Sherree Belsky

Rabbi Horowitz,

May I suggest that someone organize carpools or busses from various locations to assist people to get to court. Traffic is difficult in the morning, parking is expensive and many people just don't have easy access to transportation.

There is enough time to arrange transportation from various points such as Five Towns, Flatbush, boro park, Monsey, williamsburg, etc. so that more people can come and show support. The biggest obstacle standing in most people's way, is how will I get there. It is also fine to charge a reasonable transportation fee equal to public transit if the costs are not sponsored.

Please use your email list to inquire who would need transportation whether by bus or carpool, and you can figure out where to go from there. In addition you can inform the family how many supporters to expect so they can notify the court accordingly.

I wish I could go back in time, as I do now, in my night time dreams; and give my child self a bear hug.

I would give her the encouragement to know, that she has the strength to deal with her past, present and future pain; and to know she can be okay.

Oh, I wish I could have warned her of the dangers ahead.

No, it’s not only strangers.

Time has passed, I’m now ending my teenage years; pulling myself together, and finally thriving.

If you are hurting, I want you to know, You are not alone.

Please stay strong, and Always remember you are precious!!

I’m sending you all a huge bear hug! You’re in my thoughts and tear-filled prayers. Beware, Take care, Share and have the courage to heal.

T. Behr

P.S.

If this is not you, you should know, this could be your friend,neighbor,sibling or even child.Please be attentive and sensitive to those who may be reaching out to you.

66. Giving support to a victim     5/31/12 - 1:28 PM
Yosef Blau - New York - yosblau@gmail.com

Tragically in some Orthodox communities it takes real courage to for a victim of abuse and her family to cooperate with authorities. Bli neder I will try to be at the court. The legal principle of innocent until proven guilty does not mean that victims of crimes should not report the crime and that the alleged abuser is transformed into a victim. In this case where there was a public mass rally on behalf of the accused it is particularly important that a large number of supporters appear at the trial.

For the courage you and your family display, in not allowing this travesty to be swept under the rug, I applaud your courage. In Rabbi Horowitz, you have an understanding and strong support system. Especially in a community that fails to understand the scope of this and chooses to publicly and garishly support the alleged abuser, I am in total amazement. It didn't sit well on the nightly news!

72. from victim to survivor!     5/31/12 - 4:10 PM
N Singer - Brooklyn, NY

I am pained and bitter in reading about this issue! It is from personal experience that I speak about! The fear, confusion and silence are gut wrenching! How I wish there were more people like Rabbi Horowitz! In speaking with a few of my friends who live in the same community as the accused, they seem to feel he's innocent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How dare this girl wreck havoc on a respectable Jewish family?, they say. Ironic isn't it? I have tried to explain that this disease called molestation is rampant, but it fell on deaf ears! They say, this girl is "a messed up girl, and will make up a story on anyone she pleases!" Read what Rabbi Horowitz has to say on that. You have to be really crazy to make up this stuff! Never mind the shame and stigma! They say she's "Not so religious, and dresses untzniusdik .... I wonder why.... They say, why was the crowd of supporters for victims so minuscule and only some "crazies"? To this I say, shame on us and kudos to Pearl Engelman!! I tried to explain that for me to expose my issues I would be harming my family, digging up painful wounds and that the nature of this beast is to keep silent! I will try to attend the court hearing and openly show my support. I feel it's imperative in the quest to move from victim to survivor! Know that you are not alone! Together we stand, united with one cause! We support victims!

It takes bravery and courage and justice will prevail! Hashem Yinkom Damom! I hope this will send a message to our frum community to stop using unlicensed 'therapists'. It is far too dangerous and the cost is great! Hey, I'm not saying he abused her but I believe the girl! It takes great courage and I stand behind her!

I too am a survivor, I feel your pain.

Rav Horowitz, I hope you have more fact than the others because as it stands right now, it's the word of a troubled child versus a known baal chesed. I clearly remember the Hofner case where a troubled child accused a tutor of molestation. Mr Hofner is a broken shell of a man even though he was proven innocent.

As much as I would love to execute (yes execute, I am a multiple survivor) every rasha that hurts children, you cannot condemn every accusee.

Thanks you

75. Stand for the Victims!     5/31/12 - 7:56 PM
Faigy Loeb - Baltimore, MD

We stand firmly with the victims of abuse. May Hashem give you the koach you need to see this through.

I am humbled once again by the compassion, love and fierce protection my father, Rabbi Horowitz, feels for all of Hashem's beautiful children, not to mention his courage to stand by his convictions (in a world filled with anonymous posts and shameful silences).

Innocent, guilty.... that is for the courts to decide. But as a community, we must declare loudly that no intimidation and harrasement of victims of abuse, who are brave and courageous enough to come forward, will be tolerated, PERIOD.

Don't ever let these people think for even one second that they have any kind of power over you. Whatever race, nationality etc.. Someone who ever abused or molested a child should never be allowed to get away with it. If these people are not punished for it, they will continue doing it to other children, and chas ve'shalom we don't want them anywhere near our children. So please, get them off the streets. And, I've been thru this as a child- Supporting you all the way!!!

77. Dear Witness "Queen Esther",     5/31/12 - 9:56 PM
Sara Samson - NY - familyzo@aol.com

You actually have a lot in common with Queen Esther. She was given a responsibility that she did not ask for. She was told to go and speak to a very important person and her mission was to help herself as well as to help all of Am Yisrael.She was reluctant to go to speak to the King, but Mordechai firmly told her that she had to do it - for the sake of Am Yisrael.

The Jewish People prayed for her success as we all pray for your success because you are helping all of us. May you be as successful as Queen Esther.

Always remember that although I don't know you -- you will always be a Queen in my eyes!! Kol Hakavod to you. Knock them out with your Poise and Class.

Your bravery and resolve is inspiring. You stand strong to confront evil and you are supported by many victims and their families. Exposing and deposing any evil weakens and destroys other evil. Your strength in conquering this personal affront will free others to do the same.

In the name of justice and the goodness of Torah may you be successful and totally strengthened by your bravery in fighting this battle publically. We have you and all others affected in our Tefillos.

81. Chazak Ve'ematz!     6/1/12 - 1:53 AM
Mordechai "Motty" Finkel - Chicago, Illinois

Many victims have unfortunately experienced organized criminal activities in order to silence them. Everyone, regardless of religious affiliation, understands clearly why one of the Seven Noachide Laws codifies the requirement to set up a justice system. Without a justice system no one is safe. By coming forward, you are showing that Jews still value the basic rules of society and the despicable behaviors of some ostensibly religious Jews are outside the tenets of our core beliefs.

Those who choose to come forward and those supporting the victims are showing that child safety is a key component of the continuity of the Jewish nation. Our children, our future are at stake as a result of the perverse element among us. Abuse and the communal mishandling of the situation are the most lethal threats facing the Yiddishkeit of our children.

Assisting victims is truly the greatest form of Pidyon Shevu’im. Victims feel trapped and stifled. It’s time to redeem them from the feeling that by standing up for basic morality and against abuse, they no longer have a place in Yiddishkeit. Support the future of our community by ensuring no more children have to bear the pain inflicted by others in shame and silence!

The Behag counts the parsha of tochacha as one of the 613 mitzvos. His rationale is based on the passuk, “V’lo Itchem Levadchem” includes future generations. The gemarah in Sanhedrin says this teaches the mitzvah of arevus. Every Jew is responsible to ensure that Torah values and basic laws (to prevent lawlessness) are being upheld in our own community.

Chazak Ve’ematz! We feel your pain! Be strong, you are making the Jewish community a safer place.

83. Full support     6/1/12 - 4:22 AM
Meir Deutsch - Bet Shemesh, Israel - meird@meird.com

I fully support getting 24/7 protection for the accuser in this case, unreservedly. Community intimidation is a disgusting phenomena and must be stopped.

I think the Queens judge's motion to penalize the accused was a moral gray area, but given the circumstances it was definitely a novel idea and probably very effective.

As an orthodox Jew I am doing my best to withhold judgment on the accused, as should we all.

If he is found guilty, in addition to the secular courts' punishment, it is the responsibility of the Jewish community to ensure he is prohibited from any more employment or community organization working with children.

May Hashem give you the strength and courage to continue fighting for the truth. There is no reason you should be made to suffer further for what you have gone through. May it give you comfort and fortitude to know that there are many behind you - standing with you in support. They may not be able to be there physically but you are in their mind and in their Tefillos. May you be strengthened by the fact that what you are fighting for is a gift to other people who have suffered and are too afraid to come forward. Stand strong and proud!!!

Ayala - New York

Dear Courageous Sister,

If our community is to ever be freed from the terrible plight of abuse, victims must have examples of people who were brave enough to report their abuser to the police, were then vindicated by the courts, and were able to send the perpetrators to jail. Thank you for your courage in setting this important precedent, by coming forward to testify, so that others will be willing to come forward as well. You are a shining example to others that "might doesn't make right". Do not be intimidated. We are all literally and figuratively by your side in this.

May our community be free from any future such cases, may your case be resolved ASAP, and may you heal speedily and completely, so that you can move on with your life and accomplish great things.

Best wishes,

A supporter

I strongly condemn the intimidation you and your family have experienced. Abuse comes in many forms. May Hashem give you strength for your journey.

As Rabbi Horowitz points out, we know from research that the majority of children who disclose abuse are telling the truth. If anyone is worried about the accused's innocence, remember that for every highly publicised case where it turns out to be untrue, there are a great many more that are true. There are also many other cases where victims are still too afraid to come forward, because of the enormous personal cost of disclosing and dealing with the fallout. By speaking out and stopping the intimidation, we will give more people the ability to come forward and know that they have support, thereby preventing further harm and creating a safer environment for our children. Thank you, Rabbi Horowitz, for creating this platform where we can come together to do this.

It is only when people have the strength and determination to fight predators that we can protect our children from abuse and abusers. It is embarrassing that in the frum community victims are harassed by supporters of abusers. Such behavior not only hurts the victim yet again, but sends the message loud and clear to all predators that they can count on the support of people who should be concerned about their children, but obviously are not. This is certainly not the Torah way. I pray for you to have continued strength to pursue the right path, and help protect other people from having to endure what you have, and are, going through.

i found this article when looking for a way to send a message of support to the victim in the Weberman trial.

Reading this article I have a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes. People do care.

Thank you Rabbi Horowitz. I was abused for my entire childhood until I got married at 21. I do not speak to them or see them -- but they walk free. I am not emotionally able to handle bringing charges against my father who is a RASHA and deserves to be in jail. At least I know that when and if I tell my story- there are frum people that will choose to support the victims. Myself among them. I am incredibly proud of this girl who brought the charges against Weberman and did not back down. I hope we all find a way to make this world a safer place.

104. I'm speechless     12/24/12 - 3:27 PM
Anonymous - Jerusalem

Dear Brave Young Girl,

I have no words for you. You are something beyond what any elaborate adjective can describe. I look at you with a mixture of envy, pride and hope.

I have been through the hell of sexual abuse as well, and I dream of being able to stand in court and testify against the man that hurt me like you did. I was advised by a Rabbi not to press charges because it would ruin my chances of getting married, the way the defending side drags your name through the mud...

But now that I am married it is long past the statute of limitation. But I still dream of fighting the justice system to remove the statute of limitation on childhood sexual abuse, the same way it was removed during the Nazi hunt and Nuremberg trials. Because these people are Nazi's. And it is not fair to ask all children to stand up the minute they reach adulthood. And you were lucky enough to have found a supportive husband in due time. But not everyone does.

But you give me inspiration that maybe one day I will stand up and attempt the impossible. You have faced the impossible and succeeded. You have stood up to the army of religious denial in the face of threat, humiliation, bribery, punishment and emerged not only whole, but victorious!! You are the Nachshon ben Aminadav who was brave enough,strong enough, and faithful enough in G-d, to be the first to jump into a raging sea, and bring about the incredible miracle of the Yam Suf. You are the one that showed Klal Yisroel that even if your enemies are greater, richer, stronger, and smarter than you, if you step forward with faith in G-d, G-d will come through for you and make miracles.

It is my hope and dream that I along with all the rest of Am Yisroel will be brave enough to follow in your lead, and jump into the raging sea of denial and protection of these evildoers, and experience our very own miracles as you have. May your courage help every single abused child have the same strength to put their monsters behind bars as you have. And may they all succeed as you have. You are incredible.
