Removed immediately at the request of the poor girl who had to suffer this HELL
I was SO incensed by the lies revealed by the judge from so called frum yidden, that I initially just cut and pasted. That was a mistake; poor judgement due to my disgust at the “Klei Kodesh” and the “Askonim” and then forgetting there was a name in there as well. If Rabbi Telsner resigned, there are PLENTY at Adass/Beis HaTalmud who should also resign immediately. They won’t, is my bet. To think there are schools who have “teachers” who aren’t registered with VIT is outrageous. This is not the 1700’s and neither are the kids from that era. Get your qualifications and THEN teach. There is more to it than translating Chumash and Rashi. If you don’t like it, go to Israel, the country you love to hate. And how do they get around דינא דמלכותא דינא here in Australia? Through lies and games?
Thanks to those who noted what I had missed in my haste and alerting me.

Sincere thanks and best wishes to all the victims. It was trocious behaviour by Adass when they sent Leifer to Israel, but some say it was a few years ago and they panicked. However, it should be obvious that you don’t send rapists overseas so they don’t re-offend here, only to re-offend there.
However, it was stupendously arrogant, disgusting and disingenuous for Adass try and avoid responsibility by claiming in the Supreme Court a couple of months ago, that Leifer wasn’t the head-mistress and never employed by the school. Instead of apologizing to the victims and trying to support them Adass compounding the victim’s abuse by fighting them with a naarishkeit argument that the victims were suing the wrong entity. Enormous Chillul Hashem which will be reported world-wide along with the lies of the Adass Rabbonim.
After all this let’s hope that the victim(s) now have some form of closure.
I don’t think victims ever have closure. I just hope they get the psychiatric and psychological support which I’d expect I’d need if I was in that horrid situation.
In my reply, I will give you a more conciliatory; a more diplomatic and a less vitriolic response.
We are coming up to Yom Kippur
where we dispose all our aveiros and we renew and recommit all our vows.
In the Torah, we have the 10 Commandments as its centrepiece. There are two relationships within the Aseres Hadibrois. The first relationship is between man and G-D and the other relationship is between
man and man. Ben Odom L’Haveiroi is particularly challenging for us and that’s what we have to work on. It is in my view that Ben Odom L’Haveroi is particularly challenging more so than Ben Odom L’Mokom
oim because one relationship is the individual’s relationship with Hashem, whilst the other relationship is people working with each other.
There are people with many, varied and every conceivable personalities and personas that makes up World Jewry.
There are people that commits all
sorts of aveiros against Hashem and also against man himself.
In the case, we are talking about sex abuse and domestic violence
and other violent acts.
How can anybody violate other person’s body is beyond me.
I would say that people are opportunistic in the sense
that people find every opportunity; every loophole to satisfy their own self and their own egos.
But in saying that, every Jew is the product; a creation of Hashem.
Whilst civil authorities must be used in sex abuse cases, we still have Hashem as Chief Justice of the world and the ultimate Judge.
Why wouldn’t you be furious at the Chilul Hashem? Is it only people who drive cars on Shabbos that get rocks thrown at them?
