A Survivor Speaks Out
By (Name Removed)

Unorthodox Jew - February 1, 2006

http://unorthodoxjews.blogspot.com/2006_02_01_unorthodoxjews_archive.html


"I too was molested by Rabbi Yidi Kolko, both while a student in 7th and 8th grades in Yeshiva Torah V'daas and during those same summers whilst a camper in Camp Agudah.

I used to get rides to school in the mornings with Yidi whether in his old blue car or in his brand new brown car. At that time he lived on 56th Street between 14th & 15th Avenue, whilst I lived on 57th Street, between 15th and 16th Avenues. He was newly married at that time and his first child, a daughter, was also just born then.

Once we got to the Yeshiva on Ocean Parkway, which then was just off of Caton Road, he would park the car (either down the block from the Yeshiva, on the Ocean Parkway service road, or around the corner, I think it was East 5th Street, and ask me to come over and either sit beside him or sit on his lap. Sometimes he would move over to the passenger seat and would then sit me on his lap.

That's when he went fishing. He would insert his hands down the front of my pants and would begin to "search around" to say the least. At the same time he would pull me closer to himself, or would push himself forward againt myself, sometimes even pushing me into the stearing wheel, to the point that it hurt.

Unfortunately I didn't react or complain. The winters were cold and these rides saved on not having to walk all the way to 13th Avenue to wait for the bus (especially on Sunday mornings), you were able to leave your house later since you could always make the ride, and you saved a couple of cents, which was a lot in those days.

During one of those Sunday mornings whilst we were driving on Caton Avenue, whilst I was sitting in the front passenger seat - I almost always sat in the front passenger seat - we were involved in a terrible traffic accident where a car went through a red light and slammed into Yidi's car. B"H we all got out without a scratch.

In Camp Aguda it was the same, whether if he took me into the trees, or into his cabin, or even would take me out for a drive. FYI, during the summer of 1970 I had my bar mitzva in the camp.

I of course told my parents and tried on several times

to explain to them what I was going through, but they didn't want to believe me and my "stories", etc. My father at that time was a very well known and respected person in the Boro Park & Midwood communities and within the Yeshiva world. So I just shut up and let the molestation and perversion continue.

I also think that Yidi Kolko is a danger to the students, past and present in Yeshiva Tora Temimah and I feel that it is about time that the wall of silence be torn down.

Did I suffer as a result, probably. But I have made a life for myself and today am very happily married with 4 wonderful children".

"It is time for Yidi Kolko to pay the price for what he did to me and to others".

I Am (Name Removed)

I have spent the past few days reading all of the comments that have been posted to this blog and would like to comment.

It was not easy for me to finally open up and put in writing and post on this blog some of the things that Yidi Kolko did to me so many years ago at Yeshiva Torah Vodaas of Flatbush and at camp Agudah.

Yes, I've been carrying it for all of these years and no matter how hard I tried to forget about it, it always seems to be there. Always there. And with every case of child abuse or molestation that gets publicized, it's always there. Even today, even when I'm happily married with 4 wonderful children.

I recommend that each one of you look at your sons, or brothers and ask: can they possibly be a victim of sexual molestation by a rebbe, a teacher, a camp counselor, etc?

And if he/they were, would he be strong enough to tell you about it?

And then the question I ask is: Would you at all believe him?

For you would ask: how could it be that such an outstanding rebbe, teacher, counselor, etc., who everyone loves and raves about, how could he do something like this?

And your immediate response would automatically be: No, my son, for some reason, isn't telling the truth, he must be lying...

As I said before, I've lived with this for a very long time and it is time for Yidi Kolko to pay the price for what he did to me and to others.

What this price is I'll let others decide.

They say that time has a way of healing - from my own experience, it doesn't ever go away.

In order to survive and remain normal, one must be strong... and always and continuously believe in Hashem.

Big move. Look at the company Kolko’s in.

Kolko is done for. The game is over.

Margulies hasn't realized it yet. He's still scurrying about trying all his tried and proven cover up methods. He can't understand why nothing’s working.

The master of Sheker doesn’t understand the power of the simple truth.

If I remember correctley, angrysoul complains of abuse at the hands of "DL" while he was in High School at Shar Hatorah.

I've heard alot of serious allegations in the past few weeks concerning Toras Moshe, Shar Hatorah, and Camp Romimu.

It appears that the Kolko matter opened a bag of worms.

I'm only 16 but clealry the situation calls for your strongest efforts to be waged against Miesalman and TOMO, Feifer Romimu-Nosson Shapiro, and Shar Hatorah.

Not to downplay the Kolko incident, but there seems to be more imminent lurking danger.

(1) This DL character seems to be a Shaol Umashiv enabling him strike at any time. Miesalman is portrayeds as sitting back and doing nothing.
(2) All I have heard for 3 weeks is story after story of homosexual activities in the Shar HAtorah dorms. The shar hatorah dorm seems to be infested with sexual deviation.
(3) This Nosson Shapiro guy apparently tied young boys up with landyard and raped them. Romomu is accused of being aware of Shapiros activities and looking the other way.

I don't understand. Names and faces have come out iagainst DL and Shapiro.
Yet you choose this faceless campign against Kolko

UOJ I commend your efforts but can you please tell me why you ignore these more compelling dangers??????

Simple - take care of one case, make a korban out of him, and then move on to the next ones.

I remember that post very well. At the time I thought you were off base but as it turns out you were right on the money. The Shanda being now brought down on Rabbi Tendler, his immediate and extended family and his shul Kehillas New Hempstead is simply unspeakable. The Chillul Hashem is beyond description. In business smart people settle things quietly and move on. He could have quietly resigned, gone to Eretz Yisrael and avoided all of this and tried to rebuild his life. I am truly surprised at his father, who is a very smart man, for not doing long ago exactly as you suggested. Putting his arm around his son and saying Dai! Enough. Im not going to let you destroy the family name and your shul. I suspect that they both may have recieved some very bad advice along the way.

The amazing thing, as you point out, is that Margolis, has this Tendler story exploding in front of his nose and he doesn't even begin to get it. Now Kolko has hit the Awareness Center. Its only a matter of time before this hits the mainstream media, just like Tendler. By then its going to be way to late, both his and YTT's reputation will be in complete shambles, just like Tendler. Rome is burning and Margolis is fiddling.

hamaspik said...

UOJ, I am glad that you think your campaign is working.

It might be working on this blog, but in the world out there, it seems that you have thrown somethign at the wall hoping something will stick but so far nothing has from the results of a little project we called: FIND THE TRUTH.

To recap some of the activities that I - together with two good friends- have done over the past four weeks:

1. WE HAVE visited Torah Temima close to fifteen times. The yeshiva is running smoothly without any apparent problem - we observed the morning , afternoon, the classes, recess, teh main office, the bais medrash building, the dismissal, etc. - and no one is talking about your accusations. We spoke to about 15 employees at the school; those who heard about your
tactics said that they think you are out of your mind. A handful didn't even know about your stories.
WHY DO you make it sound liek everyone is going crazy and the rabbi is halfway out the door, if we saw that that's not the case?

2. We have spoken to, called on the phone, and emailed hundreds upon hundreds of TT graduates, as well as campers from Aguda, Ma Na Vu, and silverlake. We have yet to hear from EVEN ONE PERSON that they ever had an experience as you have described and accused.
We spoke to people from Israel to LA to NY.
WE WANT TO FIND OUT THE TRUTH but we have yet to hear one credible storY. NOT ONE.

3. We spoke to three prominent NY lawyers who scoffed at teh fact taht you have associated yourself with your lawyer Herman. They said that in the world of law he is on the bottom rung of attorneys. WHy would you hook up with such a guy if you want to be successful, they wondered.

4. These same lawyers and two federal judges we spoke to could not for the life of them understqand why this campagin of yours has been run the way it has - on a blog, and not the normal way, by gathering credible information, getting accurate names and stories, and putting together a campaign discreetly and queitly and then breaking it all out once you have that all together.
They said it seems illogical to do it the way you are, unless, of course, you are simply lacking that accurate information and details.
Those were the words of prestigious and prominent professionals in the world of law.

What are the explanatiosn for all these aforementioed points?

Here lies the problem. There is no impartiality; if the "ktanim" are scared to start up w/ Margulies then everyone is screwed - some literally, some figuratively. Is there an honest rabbi remaining, that has the balls to deal with the issues of real importance and can perhaps put aside, book bans, water bugs, sheitlach, lettuce, internet bans, fundraisers and conventions...even for just a moment? I've nearly given up hope!

UOJ:

The fact is it is like asking the Bnei Yisroel to take themselves out of Egypt. We need an outside force.

Parents are afraid to raise a fuss and force the issue because they will be asked to take their children out of yeshiva.

Far from "denying' anything Messrs. Margulies, Applegrad and Kolko do not deign to respond at all. They will not issue a denial (probably on the advice of their counsel). They ignore the issue hoping it will go away.

I have heard that one parent who was somewhat insistent, was yelled at, will have to likely remove his kids and was summoned to beis din by kolko as a motzei shem ra. The chutzpah knows no bounds.

We are all afraid to say boo. The saying in the American revolution comes to mind, gentlemen we must all hang together or we will surely hang alone.

Today is a perfect example. grades 3,5,7 and 8 had a sceince fair. many parents attended. R' Kolko was there in all his xxxx. No one said boo. Everyone sort of tiptoed around him.

The TT ombudsmen ( a recent innovation to stem the defection of their student body to other yeshivas, such as Chofetz Chaim etc..)have not have many calls from parents, nor do they have any sway with RM or RA. They are as frustrated with the cloud over the yeshiva as anyone.

The fact is we need help. maybe if the so-called Board of 27 were given to understand that by standing idly by and not investigating the charges, they can be held legally liable, something will happen. Maybe also, someone should whisper in RM's ear that as a obligated reporting person under NY law he can be in serious legal jeopardy, if charges have come to his attention and he has done nothing to ensure an independent investigation. Given the current climate, with the horrible stories of child abuse neglect and even deaths, the NY authorities are in no mood to overlook anything like this at the moment, even if RM does have a long white beard and a long coat. Who better to make an example of.

A little history. Chicago is the city that sent us Mondrowitz

Did they prosecute him in Chicago or did they just send him to us?

This is not about a city or a neighborhood. It is about a broken system that needs to be fixed.

Kolko is sick, Margulies is evil incarnate and they will both be dealt with. Their time is up.

UOJ and Company will take this matter as far as it needs to go in order to achieve the removal of Kolko from children; the punishment of Margulies for his ruthless covering up of Kolko’s molesting and his oppression of innocent victims.

However, just as important is the global issue of how we as a community are neglecting to deal with child molesters in our schools and camps.

There are solutions. Clear and simple ones. When we have finished dealing with Kolko and Margulies we must formalize an internal system of reporting and verifying complaints of abuse together with a registry of those found guilty.

This destruction of our children's souls will stop when we take the action necessary to prevent it.

a mother said...

I dont understand one thing about all the molestation. Did none of the parents suspect anythbing? Did the children hide it or did the parents just not believe it. I know today, we as parents are much more 'aware' that such sick things can happen, but if my child even hinted that someone touched them inapropriately, i would have the cops and theD.A. breathingdown that persons neck before they knew what hit them. No beis din for me. I want real jail time. I want real justice.and if i got ostracized for doing it, i would move out of ny, if necessary.
I am not placing blame on parents. I am just wondering if any of them had suspicions. And i am also trying to make the point that bais din is useless for this.

Anonymous said...

Mother
Lets not blame the victims. These things are suppressed by children and some times don't come out until years later. Many Parents who tried to make a ruckus were threatened with ostracization, no shidduchim etc. Its so easy to blame people for not doing this or that but you really can't judge somebody from the outside looking in.

You have "nearly given up". Well I have given up. We are as a community, are in very deep shit. No leadership. Literally as it says in Perek Chelek in Maseches Sanhedrin, "Pnei Hador, KPnei Ha'Kelev". We are being led by empty suits and kapotes. Rabbonim in-fighting for control of their Chassidic court$$$ spilling over to secular courts, rampant Chilul Hashem, the list is endless and numbing.

The ignoring by our major Leadership organizations, Agudah and Torah Umesorah to this sex predation problem is beneath contempt. There will be a reckoning.

Anonymous said...

Mother:

Some parents suspected nothing, most children don’t talk until much after the incident; some parents were told and didn’t believe their children; other parents were told, believed and were intimidated by Lipa Margulies into inaction; and some parents actually took action against Yidi Kolko at which point Lipa Margulies used every dirty trick in his book to suppress the information.

Much has been written about the phenomenon of molestation victims opening up and accusing their molesters many years after the fact. It is sad to say that the instant situation is almost identical to the Catholic Church scandal. There, as here, the victims were intimidated into silence and many were well into their thirties, forties and fifties before they opened up and accused their molesters.

Interestingly, here as well as in the Catholic Church situation the age of the victims stepping forward is getting younger and younger as the days go by.

One frightening difference between most of the priest molesters and Yidi Kolko is his propensity for forceful behavior.

Kolko does not charm his victims, instead he uses his position of authority to violently molest them. Most young victims of this kind of molestation are afraid to complain and many simply can’t comprehend what is happening to them, much less express it to an adult.

Mother, watch your children closely and discuss the issue with them. They need to know that they will be believed and supported if they are subjected to this kind of behavior. They also need to know that they can trust their instincts; if something feels wrong, it probably is.

One benefit of this painful episode will be an awareness of the problem by parents and as importantly the knowledge by molesters that they will not escape.

Kolko had gotten away with his behavior for decades and presumably assumed he had dodged the bullet. He established himself as a prominent and successful teacher and managed to spend his life around his prey. He is now learning that the sea of pain he has left in his wake is engulfing him and his protector.

This is a lesson to perverts and their protectors everywhere. Take your perversions to Thailand or get psychiatric treatment. Stay away from our children or you will pay a very heavy price indeed.

Anonymous said...

To me, the bigger issue is the whole cover up. It seems that most, if not all, forms of Jewish media have colluded to ignore the story. The JP only mentioned it to bash us. Otherwise, you don't hear anyone saying anything. Forget about Margolis and Kolko not issuing a statement - has anyone heard anything publicly from any rav? I know a few people have asked their ravs privately, and the rabbis have been in agreement with the JP that this isn't right, they're only allegations blah blah blah.... Still, these guys are trying to make it that UOJ and the whole issue doesn't exist! Hard to believe it's because Margo is so powerful, but who knows? Either way, it does nothing to lend to their credibility (if they have any left). This proves more than anything else that there is no true leadership today. Except for Pinchus Lip Shits, who is the leader of Shevet Levi.

The walls of silence have come crashing down. This is the calm before the tsunami.

If these rabbis choose to sit silently and do nothing they will be caught up in the storm.

If they have any sense of self-preservation they will pick up the cause quickly.

This issue will very quickly separate the rabbinical wheat from the rabbinical chaff.

I have to commend you. The quality of the commenting as well as the posts has gone up dramatically since you started this. One senses a real dialogue from some very sincere people. keep it up. This is an educational process for all concerned and it is clearly working. Of course thats Margulies biggest nightmare; educated and informed people asking pointed questions and not backing down till they get the right answer. Magulies must be asking himself wheres Mao Tse-Tung when we really need him.

Ms. Chicago

"How does one stay religious in the face of this scandal where the rabbis do nothing"

I think thats a really loaded line which goes beyond the scope of the issues here but i'll give you the short version.

Its not the rabbis who created religion but g-d. the religion g-d created is good when practiced appropriately. When corrupted it doesn't look very pretty. That 's true about alot of things. But it doesn't change the truth or goodness of the religion one iota, it merely reflects the inadequacy of some of its practitoners. I believe your question is a cop-out. Its too convenient by-half; since the rabbis are bad I don't have to be religious. Rabbis are role models. When role models behave inappropriately its surely disheartening and dissapointing. But thats no excuse to cast off religion. it just means we have to work harder and dig deeper into ourselves and explore the real source of our own religiosity. Is it just monkey see monkey do or is it something more. we also have to work harder to find positive role models. I bet that evreybody out there -- even boog -- knows at least one rabbi whose honest and a straight shooter. well thats where you gotta go. even if you have to move or take a long trek through some snow on shabbos you gotta go and search out the good people.

Theres a saying people get what they deserve. We have plenty of talented and honest people here in new york. How about this -- we need to put them on notice that were ready for the truth. No more candy coated powder puff judiasim. Watch how quickly they'll respond.

Samuel said...

My take on Chicago's question is quite a different answer.
The rabbis have created mostly all of Judaism or atleast they interpreted it, if they choose to ignore the basics of humanity to protect our young, then Judaism is a fraud no better than Islam willing to sacrifice their young.

harvey said...

I agree with Samuel, Judaism is worthless if we don't protect our young from abuse.
There is NO EXCUSE for this guy still being in the classroom, shame on all of us for tolerating this.

This way you can say you arent targeting tt but all yeshivas that are harboring molesters and why are we protesting in front of torah umesora because not one rebbe rov or principle has yet gotten up to speak about our current issues in our schools.
SAME ON AGUDA AND TORA UMESORA.
If this is the msora that you want us to go by, then i will find another definition of mesora,, because your definition is so corupt that christianity is with all its problems have a better mesora!!

Sam and harvey:
You forgot christianity. By your logic they may be the worst offenders of all having systemically condoned and covered up rampant sex abuse for a longer time then we know.

Judaism does not sacrifice its young. Most rabbis would not and do not tolerate this kind of horrible abuse and cover-up. These people are the exceptions rather than the rule. They have survived only by utilizing the most vile, vicious and underhanded tactics available to protect themselves. It is they who are the frauds -- not Judaism.

I don't consider margulies to be a rabbi at all. where's his semicha. He just a businessman who put on a big hat and long coat and calls himself the Rushisheeva and dispenses kool-aid. maybe he's the purim rabbi. Its the biggest joke. I won't permit that clown to define down for me what judiasim is? come on; we can do alot better than that.

I learned at TT for many years. I am a closet mechalel Shabos. I act like im frum, wear the clothing but im a kofer bacause Margo was a rasha and let kolko stay after I told him kolko put his hands in a bad place. Margo said to me that stop making up stories or he will send me from the yeshiva. I was afraid to tell my father.I left TT six years ago.

Your comments are absolutely heartbreaking. Margo was and is a Rasha. However, he doesen't represent g-d in any way. He's against g-d for those who can see it. g-d loves you and hates margo and his ilk. they are getting their divine retribution in front of your eyes. who would have imagined. not them for sure. think about that. return to the warm and loving embrace of g-d. this will help you heal. how about an experiment. this shabbos. tell yourself the following.

Hashem loves me and hates margo and kolko for what they did to me.

and keep this shabbos.

see what happens

Good Shabbos and Chazak V'ematz

Forget about margolis,everyone knows he's mafia, posing as tora v'das stealing their name and money. Where are all the other rabbis and rosh yeshivas? where's the outrage?
How come bais din has not emerged?
I'm losing my faith real quick,there were sheitel burnings, where's the outrage?

================================
can we get some more detail please?

Anonymous said...

There is a strong undercurrent of fear that the charges are true. They are concerned that the yeshiva will be sued and that in fact Margo is a liar and therefore dangerous in his judgement to keep Kolko on. What else has he done at the expense of the kids? I know parents like myself are speaking to other yeshivas for next year. This cloud over the yeshiva is terrifying, and many parents feel that there is something real bad here ready to explode.

Un-Orthodox Jew said...

Does anyone know of an Rav in any shul talking about the issue of child abuse in yeshivas?

YRC parent said...

Torah Temima is not the only yeshiva about to explode. Ruach Chaim is sinking fast, one rebbe left last week more are leaving soon. Every parent I have spoken with is looking into other yeshivas for next year. As of now there is no incoming nursery class, as all parents have pulled their kids out. Simcha Klor is killing his own yeshiva with his arrogance and lies.

Anonymous said...

I bet most rabbis are part of the silence conspiracy. As if being quiet about it will make it go away. But surprisingly, several people I've talked to maintain that Kolko is innocent! Hard to believe......

Simcha Klor is the "Rosh Yeshiva" of Ruach Chaim, although he is really more of a business man similar to Margo of TT. He hasn't paid his Rebbeim from the beginning of this year. He fired the beloved menahel of the yeshiva, Rabbi Asher Sabo, when he tried to stand up to Klor for the rebbeim. The first rebbe that could not handle the financial stress left last week, more are leaving soon. Klor sent out a nasty letter to the parent body about this rebbe trying to badmouth him, but we know the truth, how low can he get? This man is psychotic and must be brought down before another yeshiva in Flatbush closes it's doors (besides TT).

Anonymous said...

Sources tell me that Ruach Chaim is officially closing down at the end of this year (if not earlier). Now Klohr will sell his plot of land on L and 29th and make a killing.

Lawyer representing victims said...

I want to tell the readers that TT will be wrestled away from Margulies, it won't be the end of this year, but he will lose the school.
Parents, start looking for another school for your kids.
Rebbes start looking for other jobs.
Margulies and Kolko will be out in months, not years.

Anonymous said...

todays nypost has another explosive article about tendler. the stories of his victims are starting to come out.

If margo needs a roadmap he's got it right there. if these people really cared about g-d or their fellow man don't you think they would have done something to stop this publicity. they care only about themselves and their meglomaniac egos and don't give a hoot about anybody else. its truly sickening. just imagine when the kolko/ytt victims stories hit the press. you can see it now "Monster perv rabbi and yeshiva coverup" with a big picture of ytt in the background."

is this what "daas torah" holds? that the name of g-d, judaism and torah be desecrated in such abonimable fashion? hard to comprehend.

Be matzliach, We Be.
This blog which i started in anger ends in my concern for my fellow yiddin but also my fervrent wish that the can of worms opened by uoj will result in a better situation for our children and the frume community. you all know that i disagree with uoj in terms of how he went about his mission. but i do not disagree with what he is doing the mre and more i speak to people the more i realize that we cannot benefit in an atmsphere that works to hide criminal and deviant behavior. while i do not know the facts about the mechanech in question, and i am mispalel that is sheker, i still kow in my heart that if there are kiderlach at risk we canot take the easy way out and ignore and preted its nothing. it is my wish that hakadosh baruch hu protects his haylige am and that we should never need a uoj to take matters into hands, but that we instead as a klal should never ignore a problem and let it fester to the point that it can explode. i don;t want to say that i'm an insider because there are people who ar emuch more on the inside than me. but the inforation i know is that this is not going away and those who insist that uoj must be silenced and destroyed are on the wrong side of where things are going. i will not tel people what to hold. I do hold from saving our children. if uoj didsomething that will lead to frumme children being protected then i have to say he is being mekayim a mitzvah we cannot fathom. thank you for reading. i appreciate your cmments even those that doin';t agree with me. people should talk and they can even argue and disagree. they just shouldnt hate each other. be matzliach.

This comment makes an important point
The comment below with my answer are from the message i wrote below. I fixed the mistakes in my response to make it easier to read this blog. My spelling looks so bad because I type very fast and my keyboard sticks. I just want people to see the ideas on this whole inyan. Also, i removed the name of uoj from here because I don't want to publisize his name.

Anonymous said...
You look like a fruad. UOJ is a Mechalel Shabbos because when the accusations came out he posted on Yeshiva world that he was in Israel for shabbos. XXXXXXXXX (the name of uoj but I took it out because I don't want to publisize the name here) was in Flatbush that shabbos. He then decide this timestamp issue why did he not say this right away?
Also what is the big news that he is a Mechalel Shabbos he is in a Apikores and worse if you read all the postings on his blog.
Is thin blog a trick run by a UOJ friend?

anon, i feel like a fraud. I was screaming and yelling about something that i believed in wholeheartedly but at the end of the day i just couldn't live with myself not knowing all the facts. While I fault uoj for coming out this way I have to emesdike and admit he might know something i dont and I have no right to critize him if there is more to the story. As for the mechalel shabbos, i really do believe uoj because when I saw that i was posting on Friday but on the site it looked like shabbos, i realized what maaras ayin I myself perpetrated and I realized that it could happen to anyone. I would be devestated if someone accused me fo mechalel shabbos when i am so careful my whole life. I realized I have a responsibility to not accuse others when I opened myself up to the same accusations. Also about an apikores I agree. uoj says terrible rishusdike things about gedolei hador and mechanchim. It sickens me and it makes me very angry. The only thing is, altough i want to very much believe that his apikorsis is a reason to ignore him, I feel it is not right. Chas v'sholom it should be true, but if there was a rodeph chas vshalom doing things to my sons or nephews I would be devastated if it was known and no one did anything. I personally cant say one thing and believe another. I understand your point. On the surface you are right. I hope you can see my point of view.

It is a suprise
I dont intent to write much more about this issue. i feel that the accusations and anger and hatred have got out of hand and it isd important that if we are angry at uoj for acting outside the circles of our rabbbonim and godolim we muct act accordingly. This means we shouvltnt take any matters into our own hands and act only in ways that follow our gedolim and rabbonim. for thyis reason and it also happens to be part of why I feel that this has gotten out of hand is becfause i exopected there to be a forccfdeful and strong response from people who are accused. I am suprisaed there hasnrt been .

i read a comment on uoj tonight from someone named truth who has commented here.c while I do agree with some of the things truth says and has postyed in the past my feeling is that he is not comepltely right here. he wrote

"The reason why there is no formal response to your mass mailing is that they feel there is no need to respond to anonymous accusations. Whoever you are in real life, UOJ, would you find the need to formally respond to every comment you found on a bathroom wall about you?"

i agree. there is no reaosn to respond to every stupid comment people make and every accusation. throughout the centuries many accusations have been leveled against jewish people and these did not deserve to an nanswer every time. all i am saying is that here i wqas very supriused that there was no answer. i was so forceful freom the start because in my mind there was a terrible thing said about a mechanech and it should be stopped. im not sainy that this is the emes and forgive me for saying this but I was suprised there has been no repsonse. it make me wonder what is going on. i knwo that people are hearing the answert when they call. but not everyone has the guts to call and ask the rosh yeshiva shlitah such a bold quesiton. im not saying the rosh yeshiva shlitah owes anyone an answer just that it is supruiseing that such a serious asccusation would go without any form of repsonse from the hanhala. i was suprised.

AL CHAYT SHECHATANU LEPANECHA
i have no choice but to admit i made a mistake in calling uoj a mechalel shabbos. he is not and the reason i know this is because the reaosn i said he was is becuase the time of one of his posts came out on shabbos. but someone explained to me that a blog has this technology called a timestamp which depending on how it is set can make it look lile the persn is posting at different times. i didn't realize this until someone told me that the time stampo on my blog is wrong too. According tot he time stamp on my blog i am writing this on shabbos, when it is really 12:18 PM right now on Erev Shabbos kodesh.. i must ask uoj mechilah and because I made a mistake on this i have to admit that it is not shayich to accuse him of anything else. i know he wronte thinkgs that were mefasser gedolei hatorah and I am very upset he did and i need to stand up for kovod hatorah. But I also need to say there is a hakodosh baruch hu in this world and it is not up to me to cause machlokes. i will keep this blog up form now on becaue I want people to see that it is not impossible for a person to make a mistake and to do teshuva. i don't know what will hapen to the mechanech uoj is acusing. i don't know the story i just don';t want to believe something bad about a mecyhanech but if it is true this a very bad thing and peopel should do what they need to do as long as it is in bderech halacha to stop it.

a gutten erev shabbos and hakadsh borush hu should bring bracha, vhatzlacha, vchayim tovim vshalom to uoj and all of klal yisroel bimeheirah byameinu.

Don't try to dazzle us when you throw around these technical temrs noone even understands. It won't work to try to confuse the issue.

THERS ONLY ONE DAAS TORAH. KAVOD HATORAH!!!!
Someone who claims to be named "ddas Torah" keeps posting long winded socalled divei torah about why we should bow down to uoj and not to Hashem ysiborach. in each dvar torah he posts again and again on this blog and on uoj yemach shemo and on LakewoodInfo he defends the tactics and apikorsis of uoj. My message to daas torah is don't try to confuse the issue with your socalled dvar torah. you're distorting the words of our holy torah to make your point. that's no better than the eyruv rav making the eigel in last weeks sedrah. They decide they want to be oyvid avoydeh zorah so they make up a dvar torah about moyshe rabbeynu. that's what your doing. Just because you know how to talk the talk doesn't mean that you are saying something from das torah. if you did, then you would agree with those who support tt, and a mechanech who is being attacked because that is the only way to see this issue. THERE IS NO OTHER SIDE!!! The torah way is to look at it from the point of kovod hatorah not kavod hauoj. when will you understand that we don't care about the facts. we care that people dont just get up when they decide and go against the rabbonim of our dor!! GET IT THROUGH YOUR HEAD!!! We Will Stop Those Who reject Our ways!!! there Will Be Punishment!!!

Proof That UOJ is Wrong
* In Florida, a lawyer who has filed numerous suits against Miami's Catholic archdiocese filed a class suit on behalf of up to 100,000 Native Americans who allegedly were mentally, physically and sexually abused in government-run boarding schools. Attorney Jeffrey M. Herman says the suit, filed in April in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims in Washington, D.C., asserts that damages could run as high as $25 billion. Canada faces a similar claim from up to 18,000 Native Americans and estimates it will spend $1.2 billion (U.S.) to settle it.

Look at this. a supposed savior of the jewish community is hiring a lawyer who is only out to make money. OPbviously he is also in it for the money too. UOJ, why aren;t you more like the yeshiva rebbeim and roshie yeshva who are selflessly working to educate our youth, not some hack who is looking for so-called wrongdoing to make a quick buck. you are so transparent that it even hurts to think about. fortunately, there are plenty of people that know your just in this to make money off of tt and not because you want to corret your so call wrongdoing. Were on to you uoj. We know what you stand for and we will see that you get put out of business fast. You can hide, but you can't run!!

Who is Rabbi T?
Does anyone know who this sounds like? I'm not sure if we should trust this person. He sounds like he secretly supports our enemy. but he does make a few very good ideas. What does the coalition think?

Rabbi T. said...
Forgive me for interjecting like this. I am the Rov of a Kehilla in the Flatbush community and I do not know if the accusations are true. What I do know is that many chasshuve people before this OUJ (I know his name has been written here, but how do we really know if this is the person's name) tried to address this issue and failed for many reasons.

One of the main reasons is that frumme yiddin are heilige and they want to believe the best of each other. Sadly, and not purposely, this is sometimes our downfall.

Also, the traditional way of doing things sometimes does not work. Again, not due to rishus or l'hachas not to address the needs of fellow yiddin. But because it is a big achreiyus for a community leader to take on a different community leader and I'm sad to say, it is hard to do and scary to do.

Is this a petch on Rabbonim? I cannot say for others, but for me, yes. Can I do more? Should I do more? Yes. I will have to answer to the aibishter.

What my point is, is OUJ may not be right, but I believe he must receive credit for forcing this issue into the forefront. Do his threats seem a bit overboard? Please be moichel me for saying that maybe the Klal needed this wake up call. Even if you can argue that OUJ is a mechalel Shabbos (can we? do we know really?) or is not Machshiv our gedolim.

Even if true, and I know what I read here is attributed to him, we know that in the days of Mashiach, Chutzpah will rule the day. In this case, maybe having a Mechutziv lead the call to improve is a sign of Mashiach's imminent arrival. But it is not, chas v'shalom, a cause for calls to violence or hatred.

Yiddin, I know these events are a hard pill to swallow. Because we are helige yiddin, we do not want to believe such accusations. But we can not be blind to any possibility. We also must not shoot the messenger. Even if he seems a bit unorthodox.

I hope we will keep our heads and do what is right, believe what is right, and try to view these circumstances from a correct, torahdike world-view. If not, we are just a bunch of fighting, squabbling people who are not looking for solutions, only problems.

Again, please be moichel me if I said anything that may have been offensive. I mean only to speak l'Shem Kavod haTorah and l'Kavod Shem Shamayim.

A gutten Shabbos.

Let The Games Begin said...

I am all ready to go, UOJ.

You have made this into a game.

Yes, YOU.

If you didn';t treat it as a game on blog, maybe an important topic like this would be treated as it should.

Instead it has become relegated to the shmooze of blogs and cafes.

Pardon me, but it has become one big joke.

If I had been oraganizing such a campaign, I would have gathered a handful of edevoted individuals clandestinely, put together a book of irrefutable evidence, hired top-notch attorneys, and taken the whole thing - in an orchestrated and intelligent manner - to those involved.

This silly, tit-for-tat, two-year-old type of back-and-forth discussion does little for anyone.

The name calling, profanity, and threatening may be entertaining to whomever is even still following this thing, but, at the end of the day, it will do very little other then stir up the pot, create some fodder for a newspaper or broadcast, get people and some lawyers going, and that's all.

This was not the way to go about it.
In fact, by doing it this way, could it be that you may have jeopordized any chance of us getting something effective done?

I sure hope not, but it is appearing more and more that way.

So, as I said before, I am a betting man and I'll take the establishement and Rabbi M. and whoever else vs. UOJ and Herman and all those guys.

The games have begun.

Let's keep the rooting and cheering in the stands to a minimum until the games are over.

David said...

Unfortunately, the DA's office, who I have been in contact with, can not do anything until someone who has been "recently" molested, meaning within the past few years, comes forward and files a complaint.

In my case, the statue of limitations ended 27 years ago.

Forget the money. "let the games..." doesn't have any and can't match UOJ.

So let's even up the playing field and set it up this way:

Get yourself a steel jock and protective cup. You'll need it.

In a sense the Ketanim are worse than the real Gedolim , because the Gedolim are mostly in thier 90`s and they are probably unaware of what is going on.

Rumor has it that Rabbi Kolko will not be returning to YTT next year.*

I DONT BELIEVE FOR ONE MINUTE THAT THIS IS A TRUE RUMOR.
THEY ARE SAYING THIS SO THAT UOJ SHOULD STOP WHAT HE IS DOING.
THE ONLY WAY WE WILL REMOTLY BELIEVE THEM IS WHEN A PUBLIC LETTER COMES OUT FROM YTT STATING EXACTLY WHAT HIS PLANS ARE REGARDING THE CURRENT SITUATION. (SIGNED BY MARGO OF COURSE)

The TT Letter said...

Dear Parents:

For the past thirty five years I have been covering up the fact that Yidi Kolko has been molesting students in Yeshiva Torah Temimah. I do not understand what all the fuss is about. Yidi Kolko is a fine Rebbi and as we know no one is perfect. Why is everyone focused on the fact that he is a child molester? Focus on the good, not the bad. So, he ruined some lives, big deal. So, I covered it up, big deal.

We must stick together and continue the cover up. As parents in my Yeshiva, you know that your first obligation is to the health of my Yeshiva. Your children’s well being are a distant third, well after your obligation to pay me tuition (cash accepted, please deliver to Rabbi Applegrad.) If we work as one, we can overcome the truth and you my precious parent body can continue allowing me to spread my version of the torah for years to come.

I apologize for taking so long to send this letter, but Yaakov, Yidi and I have been hard at work trying to terrorize the victims of Kolko’s sickness. They expect no less from us. Please help us continue our cover-up and terror campaign by sending me a tax deductible donation in the enclosed envelope (cash accepted, please deliver to Rabbi Applegrad.)

I have a psak din from a gadol that we must continue to ignore Yidi’s use of your children for his recreation. It is his right as a Rebbi. The gadol explains that since he dedicates his life to your children, the least you can do is allow him to have his way with them. It is your duty to keep him calm and happy.

Thank you for your continued support of my important mossed. Please help us do more by sending me a tax deductable donation (cash accepted, please deliver to Rabbi Applegrad) in the enclosed envelope (your stamp helps us save on postage.)

Very Sincerely,

Moireinu Harav Hagoen Rosh HaYeshiva Lipa Margulies

To all my past and present students and their parents.

It is with deep sorrow that I must inform you that all of the allegations and accusations that have been brought against me, both now and in the past, are 100% emes.

I have been a sick man for a long time, having caused untold emotional and psychological damage to too many young children, and this for a period extending over 36 years.

I have tried over these 36+ years to cover up my actions, and had the unwaivering support of all of my colleagues, both in Yeshiva Torah Temimah, in Camp MaNaVu, in Karlin Stolin, in Camp Aguda, etc.

In addition I want to thank all of the staff and leadership within the above organizations, as well as those at Agudath Israel, Torah U'Mesorah, for helping me to cover up my despicable actions.

I unfortunately have an affection for young boys which causes me to do things to them that, al pi halacha, I am chayav misa for them, but I just can't control my yetzer hara.

Once again, I am really sorry for what I have done and ask all whom I have caused tremendous hurt and anguish to for all of these years to please be moichel me.

Lastly, in order to put an end to all of this, I have submitted my letter of resignation to Rabbi Margulies and will be leaving the world of chinuch immediately.

A freilichin Purim to all,

Sincerely,

Rabbi Y. Kolko

Survivor of Sexual abuse said...

Great letter, but as we all know that letter will never happen.

But what will happen is what all molesters do when they are caught...

I am sorry. I am sick. I was molested in Europe as a young boy by my Rebbe. Please forgive me. I was only doing what I was taught.

And this will happen of course after souls have been murdered throught the ultimate betrayal of molestation. The betrayal of a child from a supposed respected authority figure.

And the protectors of the molestor will say, "I too was molested as a child and so employing a molestor feels like the norm to me.

I never got treatment for my molestation, nor did I ever dare tell anyone becuase in Yiddishkeit we don't speak about these things, so I am just continuing the sickness the best way I can.

The Accused Rabbi, and protector of accused, I beg of you to think about who did this to you as a child and come clean, for your own sake as well as the sake of future children who could be hurt.

Imagine what a big person you will be in the almighty's eyes, if you stand begore him and say, "I am a Rebbe and I am sick and I don't want to hurt anyone any more and I am sorry." "I have protected a child molestor becuase I am sick and I am sorry" You both have the power to stop the sickness!

survivor;

powerful stuff, but both of us know that your scenario will never happen.

They will have to be dragged out, screaming and kicking.

"Herskovic died Friday at his Encino home after a lengthy battle with cancer, said his daughter, Patricia Herskovic.

Three months after being sent from Belgium to Auschwitz, Herskovic escaped by cutting through a chain-link fence with two other prisoners using a pair of wire cutters he had hidden. It was the first night of Hanukkah in 1942.

The three hopped a train to Breslau, Germany, but a local rabbi threw them out when they tried to tell him about the horrors at Auschwitz."



People dont realize.... throughout jewish history rabbis denied and did not address many important issues as they happened. Rabbonim (for the most part i hope) are learned ppl, that know how too deal with pure halacha and jewish matters.

War, sexual abuse, drugs and many other world issues are out of many rabbonims league and they just dont have the tools to deal with. It usually takes years and years for the "leaders" in that sense, to catch up to the times. Drug use is a good example, I think they are finally catching up, but sexual abuse unfortunately is taking a longer time. I hope sooner rather than later people and leaders will stop being this blind and deal with these issues in an appropriate manner. If they would only look back at their own histroy... and learn from the mistakes of the past.

its never gonna happen , my friend.
untill we have a positive way of knowing who is a true rov, rabbi , gadol or katan we are in a lost world.
all you have to do today is write an english or hebrew book and that is your beginnig of becoming a godol (assuming you arent banned by some gadol wannabe ) everyone in the chassidishe velt is a MOYRAYNU HARAV and in the litvish velt you become a semi gadol when you grow a beard.

yekka said...

we should learn from the yekish community.
everyone in shul gets called up to the torah as HAChOVER, no reb , no moraynu no harav, except for the shul rav of course or a visiting rav.

anon, RE: Your comments on Book writing leading to "gadlus".

True, unless your last name is Slifkin.
Then it's a book auto-de-fe on Rechov Malchei Yisroel.

Boog,

"they will have to be carried out kicking and screaming"

That's exactly what's going to happen.

If it comes to that point , which i hope it does not, then im hoping for it too be aired nationally on TV. Thats what he should get for being such an akshin.

Haleger Yid said...

I believe that all those who do post their personal beliefs, should just as well post their religious affiliation.
Orthodox Jews must abide by the Torah Laws as explained by our Rabbis. Anything less would consider you un-orthodox.
Orthodox Rabbis in general DO NOT consider "Sexual Molestation" to be a unique category of abuse; rather an extension of general abuse. The Torah itself makes mention of such issues in regard to young girls. Where restitution is mandated for the father alone.
In our present day Golus, where contact with our surrounding gentile world is pronounced, saturated by our daily exposure to preeminent media sources, we, the Am Hanivchar have unfortunately become completely unfocused to a true Torah, and hence Jewish response MUST be to abuse.
While the gentile World “officially” condemns “sexual abuse” as: evil, wrong, criminal, we Jews must obtain only rabbinical defined Torah portrayals of “Child Sexual Abuse!”
It is undoubtedly wrong. But to what extent does the Torah establish it’s severity, and hence it’s punishment.
Certainly speaking evil of somebody, truth or otherwise, establishes the most severe of all wrong doings. Joining a fray which has nothing to do with you, a good Jew, is the worst possible scenario of what the Torah establishes as far, far worse then “child sexual abuse,” and the punishment far more severe.
Having sexual relations with a child could possibly be punished by Malkos, at the most. Loshon Hora or in this unconfirmed case, Motzai Shem Ra, is punishable by Tzora’as, a far worse penalty.
Watch what you Say!

Talmid of Rav Belsky said...

Recently during his shiur at Yeshiva Torah Vodaath, Rabbi Yisroel Belsky stated that he always backed Rabbi Yidi Kolko Shlita and will continue to do so in the future. Rabbi Yisroel Belsky supported his position based on never hearing any allegations of Yidi Kolko penetrating a boy with his penis. Therefore Rabbi Yisroel Belsky said "Rabbi Yidi Kolko Shlita should not be considered a pedophile, and he should be permitted back to his class at YTT".
