SNAP blasts backers of accused Rabbi in NY
This is a disturbing show of insensitivity and apathy towards the victim of this alleged predator. Child sex abuse is a heinous crime with long-lasting effects, and it is incredibly callous for these “supporters” of Nechemya Weberman to so publicly champion this alleged abuser. Shame on everyone involved.
The fact that Weberman abused his authority as both spiritual advisor and therapist is awful. It is also possible that he has used these same positions of power to abuse other teenage girls. Yet thanks to these public displays of support, others who may have seen, suspected, or suffered crimes by Weberman will be intimidated and will continue to suffer in silence.
We are grateful to Hershy Deutch for his work to promote sensitivity to the victim and to try to prevent further cover-up in the Orthodox Jewish community. We hope that those who have participated in this fundraiser will see the error of their ways and use their energy to protect children instead of abusers.
