The Sydney Rabbinate responds to the Royal Commission חילול השם

[Hat tip PB]

Author: pitputim

I've enjoyed being a computer science professor in Melbourne, Australia, as well as band leader/singer for the Schnapps Band. My high schooling was in Chabad and I continued at Yeshivat Kerem B'Yavneh in Israel and later in life at Machon L'Hora'ah, Yeshivas Halichos Olam.

  1. I am highly gratified that my friend and colleagues in the Chabad Rabbinate of Sydney created a video to place our collective view on sex abuse on the record.
    We all find this crime both heinous and repugnant. Victims must be believed, shown empathy and supported in their path of recovery.
    Perpetrator of these crimes are evil, they must be flushed out, tried in courts of law and given the maximum possible sentence of incarceration.
    The Halacha of Mesira in this context does not apply.
    Any rabbi or lay leader who holds a contrary view even in with the most nuanced prespective should step down from his/her position/s of authority.


      1. Under the thumb. Sydney is a simple place you are either with the Yeshiva there or run far away as a Chabad Rabbi. The problem has always been one of hierarchy. There is one official Shaliach and there is nobody alive to dislodge him


  2. there are at least 20 Chabad Rabbis who are employed by non-Chabad synagogues, schools and community organizations.
