This is worth reading.
I must say that I enjoyed the visits of Rabbi Brander and Dr Pelcowitz. I spoke to each of them and found them refreshingly genuine and “with it”.
Kudos to COSA for their work in bringing out Rabbi Brander, and to the Jewish Taskforce for bringing out Dr Pelcowitz. One can only hope that the apparent improvement in education and awareness continues to grow and that this scourge weakens to the extent that any child can be assured to be safe while participating in a Jewish organisation.
To move forward, we must not only improve education, but recognise the past; that goes without saying.
We, who have a holy moral investiture, must show the way. Our record hasn’t been good to say the least, and with more alleged perpetrators unmasked, shock and disbelief at the extent of horrid events and the criminal sickness of perpetrators continues to grow and make me feel low. I simply find it hard to fathom why “people” would do such things.
