The Molester Next Door!

By FRANK BRUNI
Published: November 7, 2011

The longest, most exhaustively researched article I ever wrote for a newspaper or magazine was about a child molester who had sexually abused a little boy living down the street. The abuse went on for more than two years, beginning when the boy was 10.

This molester had a job. A house. A wife. Two kids of his own. And he gained access to his victim not through brute force but through patience, play and gifts: help with his homework, computer games, a new bike. To neighborhood observers, including the victim’s parents, the molester’s attentiveness passed for kindness, at least for a while. A molester’s behavior very often does.

The arrest on Saturday of a former Penn State University assistant football coach — who is accused of sexually abusing eight pre-adolescent, adolescent and teenage boys — brought this all back to me. I wonder if people who know the coach and saw him working with kids will comment on how genuinely nurturing he seemed and how this surely prevented or discouraged suspicions about him.

This is something that has come up repeatedly over decades — I wrote that article back in 1991, for The Detroit Free Press — but that remains tough to accept: the predator to watch out for is less likely to don a trench coat and lurk behind a bush than to wear a clerical collar and stand near the altar or to hold a stopwatch and walk the sidelines. And he (or, for that matter, she) works with children as a function of being drawn to them for reasons beyond their welfare.

The former Penn State assistant coach, Jerry Sandusky, 67, founded and ran a charity program for disadvantaged boys. That’s one of the ways he got to know and interact so extensively with kids, some of whom received special favors related to his college-football connections. His alleged abuse of them is said to have occurred over a 15-year period ending in 2009.

He maintains his innocence of the charges against him. That’s important to note, because sexual abuse of children is a crime so rightly enraging that the specter of it has prompted unfair rushes to judgment in the past.

But true or not, the accusations against Sandusky, spelled out in great detail in a 23-page grand jury report, bring to mind many proven cases in which a molester occupied a position of trust, identified and gravitated to children who were especially vulnerable, made them feel special and was by all outward appearances their champion, which many molesters indeed believe themselves to be.

In their own minds these molesters aren’t predators. They’re people whose affinity for children just happens to have a sexual element, the satisfaction of which they’ve convinced themselves isn’t such a big, harmful deal.

Parents face a tricky challenge. They need to be watchful but not paranoid, because most clergy members, scout leaders, camp counselors and coaches aren’t abusers in waiting and are improving children’s lives. They deserve the opportunity to.

But parents should also remain conscious of an additional lesson suggested by the Penn State story. Institutions do an awful job of policing themselves.

That has been true of the Boy Scouts, which has paid out tens of million of dollars in response to lawsuits by former scouts molested by adults who continued to work in the organization despite complaints or questions about their behavior.

That has been true of the Roman Catholic Church, whose diocesan heads and bishops repeatedly transferred abusive priests from one parish to another rather than report them to law enforcement authorities. This cover-up spanned decades and went all the way up the hierarchy of the church.

Many factors explain it, including a fear of scandal and desire to protect the church’s image. The Boy Scouts, too, didn’t want messiness exposed.

Was that a dynamic at Penn State as well? Two university officials have been indicted for not contacting the police after being alerted many years ago to the possibility that Sandusky was abusing boys from his charity on university premises.

And there are lingering questions about whether the university’s renowned head football coach, Joe Paterno, was irresponsible.

According to an account in the indictment that he hasn’t disputed, a graduate assistant in 2002 told him of inappropriate activity in a university shower between a boy and Sandusky, who had already retired from his longtime job as the coordinator of the football team’s defense. Coach Paterno relayed that to a university official, then apparently moved on. And Sandusky continued to interact with troubled boys.

Paterno absolutely should have followed up. Maybe he just couldn’t envision someone like Sandusky — a distinguished professional, a seeming do-gooder — as a molester. But it’s important that we all do.

The Life and Times of Matisyahu Pickwick Salomon 8 said...

There are many sad days when Rabbi Matisyahu Salomon wishes that he had never left his cozy quarters in quiet Gateshead in England that is still stuck way back in the slow moving eighteenth century where the maidens are shy and blush and the boys have manners and respect their elders. It's quiet in that part of England, all the action is in hyper London or Manchester or Liverpool.

But having been persuaded to leave his post over there and cross the Atlantic on a so to speak slow moving boat, he now finds himself in the urbs of New Jersey, a state that is one long suburbia, with the town of Lakewood being fairly typical of the way people live in New Jersey.

But the change in physical location is nothing compared to the the literal wild west atmosphere of the current Lakewood yeshiva. Founded by Rav Aron Kotler z"l as an impoverished enclave for true Torah lishma studies, it has now transformed into quite a different town. Long gone is the self-sacrificing way of its founders among the ledaership. Instead, a few grandson denizens have overtaken to run the place like Clint Eastwood cowboys regardless of their horrid personal reputations.

Matisyahu Salomon must have pangs of anguish that his nominal boss, Malkiel Kotler is a public bigamist. His first wife, still living in Israel refused a divorce, so he got himself a heter mei'ah rabbonim and "married" a second cool chick in the USA. Only in Jewish law the second "wife" has the dubious status of being more of a "handmaiden" rather than a true spouse. It's all very iffy. But dapper Malkiel needed a new meidel since his old veibel refused to come to America, so he went out shopping and got one for himself, and his cousin Moshe Heinemann helped to organize it. Such is Rabbis Salomon's boss, and he can't be happy about it.

The other real boss is the Lakewood yeshiva's CEO, the young punk Aron Kotler, Malkiel's kid brother who really raises all the money and runs the place with an iron fist. He has a way of building connections like a young mafia don and he does it too well. Yet another good reason for Rabbi Salomon to hate his own situation with such low-lives, but he still holds his nose and pretends as if all's well.

Heter meah rabbanim Lakewood Special said...

Wikipedia:

"Heter meah rabbanim

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Heter meah rabbanim (Hebrew: היתר מאה רבנים, "permission by one hundred rabbis") is a term in Jewish law which means that one hundred Rabbis agree with a Rabbinical court that a particular situation warrants an exemption to permit a man to remarry even though his wife refuses or is unable to accept a get (a legal divorce according to Jewish law).

In about 1000 C.E. the Ashkenazic halachic authority Rabbeinu Gershom of Mainz issued a decree called "Cherem de'Rabbeinu Gershom" banning bigamy. To prevent this decree from causing flippant divorces previously unnecessary, he also decreed that "a woman may not be divorced against her will."

In certain extreme cases, however, such as the case of a man whose wife is missing, or refuses to accept a get for an extended period, Beth din will only permit him to remarry after one hundred rabbis agree with them to issue an exemption.

After receiving a heter meah rabbanim, Beth din will require the husband to write a get for his wife and deposit it with them. His wife will remain married until she receives the get in her possession.

To ensure that a particular situation indeed justifies an exemption, the rabbis instituted a requirement, that at least one hundred Torah scholars domiciled in at least three different countries or, according to some authorities, it is enough three different jurisdictions, certify that dispensation for a second marriage is factually justified.

In order to get a heter meah rabbonim, it used to be that a man who got the go ahead from a Rabbinic court wandered from town to town and from one country to another with a letter from Beth din and had to plead his case with every town Rabbi to get his approval. Later on, written permission by mail was accepted and sometimes an intermediary was used to plead his case. In the last century with the ease of communication, it has become a more formal process in which Beth din takes the lead and secures the one hundred signatures required.

Situations where Beth din might see a justification which warrants this process includes:

*Where the Halacha requires a man to divorce his wife and she refuses to accept it (e.g. some situations of adultery).

*Where the wife has abandoned her husband and steadfastly refuses to accept a get.

*Where the wife disappeared and her whereabouts are unknown.

*Where the wife is mentally unable to give consent to receiving a get.

*Where the wife has fallen into an irreversible coma due to illness or injury.

In the last two of these cases, the Beth din will, as a condition of the heter, demand a binding undertaking from the husband that he will continue to provide for his wife's care..."

"Fourth woman details sexual harassment allegations against Cain

By msnbc.com's Michael O'Brien

Update: Herman Cain will hold a news conference in Phoenix, Ariz. Tuesday at 3 p.m. local time to address allegations made by Sharon Bialek.

A fourth woman, Sharon Bialek, leveled new allegations of sexual harassment against Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain at a press conference on Monday.

Bialek, a former employee of the National Restaurant Association's educational foundation, accused Cain of making an inappropriate advance toward her in 1997, when she visited Cain in Washington, D.C. to seek his assistance in finding a new job. She appeared at a press conference arranged by attorney Gloria Allred.

Bialek accused Cain of touching her in an inappropriate manner during her visit to D.C., where Cain was still serving as president of the restaurant association. When she rebuffed him, Cain said, "You want a job, right?" per Bialek's retelling.

Cain's spokesman denied the new allegations in a statement while the press conference was under way...

Bialek is the fourth woman to have accused Cain of harassment during his tenure as the top official at the restaurant lobby. The association settled with two of them, and a third woman was reported last week by the Associated Press. None of these women have made public their identities, and NBC News hasn't independently verified the stories of the third woman or Bialek.

But Bialek said that the new allegations had prompted her to go public.

"Now I'm coming forward to give a face and a voice to those women who cannot, or, for whatever reasons, do not wish to come forward, and on behalf of all women who are sexually harassed in the workplace but do not come out of fear of retaliation or public humiliation," she said.

"I really didn't want to be here today, and wouldn't have been here if it had not been for the three other women who have alleged sexual harassment against Mr. Cain," she added. "I want you, Mr. Cain, to come clean. Just admit what you did; admit that you were inappropriate to people ... Mr. Cain, I implore you, make this right so you and the country can move forward and focus on the real issues at hand
."

Cain's campaign has endured a week's worth of story about accusations regarding sexual harassment, but has steadfastly denied that Cain engaged in any such activities. An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Monday found that a majority of Republicans were unconcerned by the allegations.

Allred said that Bialek had no plans to file a lawsuit or sell her story. Bialek said she confronted Cain at a Tea Party event a month ago in Chicago where Cain admitted recognizing her before he was whisked away.

"If all of these allegations by all of the women who have been reported to have made them are true, then I, for one, am disgusted at Mr. Cain's serial sexual harassment of women," said Allred, the famously combative attorney. "Because Mr. Cain, while running for president, is actively lying to Americans, showing disdain for our common sense and intellect."

Fall of Modern Rome and the West said...

Blame it on Berlusconi's Bunga-Bunga parties who partied away and pocketed its billions as modern Italy when down the tubes:

MSNBC:

"If Rome burns, U.S. will feel the heat

By John W. Schoen, Senior Producer

The financial fires raging in Europe threatened to consume Italy Monday, as investors fled the country’s debt, driving up borrowing costs and pressuring Premier Silvio Berlusconi to resign. Unless those fires can be contained, the U.S. and the rest of the world will soon feel the heat.

After multiple failed attempts by Berlusconi’s government to reform Italy’s debt-heavy budget and after weekend reports that the government may fall, the financial markets pummeled Italian bonds Monday morning, sending interest rates approaching 7 percent. At those rates, the cost of periodically rolling over Italy’s $2.6 trillion in outstanding debt would quickly swamp its already strained budget.

Nearly two years after similar broken reform promises by Greece, the epicenter of the current financial crisis, the widening turmoil poses a much bigger threat.

"Italy has much more systemic implications than Greece, its debt is larger than the rest of the periphery put together, it is too big to fail, too big to save,” Thanos Vamvakidis, a financial market analyst at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. “The markets don’t believe Berlusconi at this point.”

To cope with losses expected on Greek debt, European officials are in talks to expand a $320 billion bailout fund to shore up European banks or buy Greek bonds outright. Some analysts have warned that European banks don’t have enough capital to withstand losses on their holdings of Greek debt. A default by Italy, the world’s third largest issuer of government debt behind the U.S. and Japan, would dwarf those losses and swamp even an expanded bailout fund...

“The folks who think that the U.S. economy or the financial markets are immune and will simply ride out the storm are dreaming in Technicolor,” Gluskin Sheff chief economist David Rosenberg said Monday...

Roughly half of top U.S. banks surveyed by the Federal Reserve reported having made loans or extending credit to European banks. The findings from a quarterly lending poll released Monday show that, though American banks have relatively small direct exposure to Greek and Italian debt, the financial turmoil in Europe poses a significant overall risk to the U.S. banking system...

Less is known about a form of bond default insurance known as credit default swaps written to backstop the risk of a bond issuer not being able to make payments. U.S. banks have written about $400 billion in CDS contracts on European sovereign debt, according to the Bank for International Settlements. Those payouts would be triggered if Greece or Italy defaults...

Italian leaders now face the same downward spiral that forced Greece, Ireland and Portugal to seek bailouts from their stronger eurozone counterparts. The yield on Italy's 10-year bonds soared Monday to 6.58 percent, the highest since the euro was established in 1999. That raises the cost of issuing fresh debt, further straining the governments’ already stretched budget.

As the Greek debt crisis has demonstrated, Italian officials face limited options in coping with that spiral. Deep budget cuts have sent Greece’s economy in reverse and cut into tax revenues, forcing the government to cut spending further. The contracting economy also makes it harder to comply with European conditions for aid that are tied to the ratio of total debt to gross domestic product. As GDP shrinks, that number rises..."

"Syria Unleashes Assault to Take an Unbowed City

By ANTHONY SHADID November 7, 2011

BEIRUT, Lebanon — The Syrian government has launched a bloody assault to retake Homs, the country’s third-largest city, facing armed defectors who have prevented the government’s forces from seizing it as they did other restive locales this summer, in what may stand as one of the most violent episodes in an eight-month uprising.

The specter of civil war has long hung over Homs, the most tenacious and determined of cities opposed to President Bashar al-Assad’s rule, where the city’s Sunni Muslim majority has closed ranks behind the revolt. This month, parts of the city have become an urban battlefield, with activists saying government forces have killed 111 people in just five days, opposition groups warning of dire shortages forced by the siege and residents complaining of lawlessness by marauding soldiers and paramilitary fighters.

The strife comes as mediation by the Arab League has apparently collapsed in one of the latest efforts to end what is among the most ferocious crackdowns on the revolts sweeping the Arab world this year. The government has increasingly demonstrated it will continue to try to stanch dissent by force, ignoring the relatively muted protests of the international community.

As important, in a country fraught with fears of a broader civil war, Homs may be emerging as an example to the rest of Syria of the relative success of fighting back against a military that, while still unified, has suffered more defections as fighting persists and more than 3,000 civilians have been killed.

“Homs is a turning point for now,” said an analyst based in Damascus who spoke on the condition of anonymity. “It’s a successful model of self-defense, if you will, at a time when you really can’t expect people to take any more. They’ve seen too many corpses come back, too many people arrested, disappeared or returned after abominable treatment. It’s too much. And everybody seems to be losing control of the street.”

Just as Hama, a city that rivals Homs in size, was retaken at the beginning of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, violence has shaken Homs during an important Muslim holiday, Id al-Adha, which began Sunday. But Homs and its relatively unified Sunni Muslim majority have offered much more resistance than Hama and other large towns, including Deir al-Zour and Latakia, which the government stormed in August, at the onset of a shift in strategy to crush the uprising almost solely through force of arms.

On Monday, residents of Homs described harrowing scenes of abandoned streets and relentless gunfire, which sent some residents fleeing and forced others to remain indoors for fear of not being able to return to their houses. Death announcements clutter walls, residents said, testifying to the carnage in the city, which is near the Lebanese border.

“What a night, what a night,” said a woman in her 50s who lives in Inshaat, a troubled neighborhood that borders Baba Amr, the most embattled area of the city.

Amid the reverberations of gunfire and explosions, she said she had tried to check on her mother, who is in her mid-80s and lives in an apartment upstairs.

“I didn’t want to turn on the lights of the stairs because there are snipers everywhere, and they will shoot whenever they see the lights,” she said. “I felt that the air was being sucked out of the room by the intensity and frequency of the explosions.”

Her account was echoed by residents reached by telephone across the city. Many called the fighting the worst in Homs since the uprising began in mid-March.

“The city is an open wound,” said Mohammed Saleh, who fled Homs with his daughter on Sunday for the safer environs of the capital, Damascus..."

"Olympus Hid Losses With Acquisition Fees

By Mariko Yasu and Naoko Fujimura - Nov 8, 2011

Olympus Corp. (7733) said three executives helped conceal decades of losses by paying inflated fees to takeover advisers, the first admission of wrongdoing since accusations from its former chief executive officer engulfed the Japanese camera maker in scandal four weeks ago...

“The investigation must continue to determine how much rot there is,” said David Herro, chief investment officer of Harris Associates LP. “All responsible must, at a minimum, leave. Also, since the management’s credibility is nearly nonexistent, all of what they say must be verified.”

Olympus released a statement this morning saying an independent investigation found advisory fees, takeover payments and writedowns were used to hide soured investments from the 1990s.
Enron Repeat

The Tokyo Stock Exchange said it’s considering moving the shares in the world’s biggest maker of endoscopes to a watchlist for possible delisting following today’s revelations. Japan’s Securities and Exchange Surveillance Commission is investigating Olympus, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.

“It’s a repeat of WorldCom and Enron,” said Ichiro Yamada, manager of equities at Fukoku Mutual Life Insurance Co. “This scandal has revealed a lack of transparency in Japan’s accounting, which is dragging down the whole market.”

Allegations by Michael C. Woodford after he was axed as CEO on Oct. 14 had wiped more than half the value from the company’s stock before today. Olympus funneled more than $600 million in fees on the $2 billion Gyrus takeover to offshore funds to cancel impairments that the company had kept off its books, the statement said...

After being fired, Woodford went public with his concerns raised with Kikukawa and Mori over $687 million paid in advisory fees in the $2 billion acquisition of U.K. medical-equipment company Gyrus and the writedowns. All the transactions involved payments to Cayman Islands companies or special purpose vehicles whose beneficiaries are not known.

FBI Probe

The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation is probing the allegations, according to Woodford.

The probes center on more than $600 million in fees paid to AXAM Investments Ltd., a now-defunct Cayman Islands fund connected to U.S.-based Japanese banker Hajime Sagawa.

Mori, a key official involved in the Gyrus takeover according to U.K. company records, on Oct. 27 declined to name the person who introduced Sagawa to Olympus.

Repeated attempts to reach Sagawa at his registered address in Boca Raton, Florida, have been unsuccessful, as have efforts to trace the owners of Cayman entities paid for the three other acquisitions.

“The money went to those shareholders,” Mori said at the Oct. 27 briefing in Tokyo. “We have no idea who they are.”

Company Profile:

The Companies: The Americare companies are a network of for-profit healthcare companies. Americare Certified Special Services Inc. ("ACSS") is a certified home health agency (CHHA) and Americare, Inc. ("Americare") is a licensed home care services agency (LHCSA) [1].

ACSS Principals: Martin "Elly" Kleinman is the President, CEO, and sole shareholder[2] of ACSS. Jack Meth and Faivish Pewzner are the Vice Presidents[3].

Americare, Inc Principals: Martin "Elly" Kleinman is the President and CEO of Americare, Inc. Jack Meth, Faivish Pewzner, and David Helfgott are the Vice Presidents. George Stern is the Executive Director[4].

Claim to Shame:

In October 2005, ACSS, Americare, MartinKleinman, and their employee Diane Ahearn entered into a $1.2 million settlement agreement resolving allegations against them for their role in subjecting 17 mentally-disabled residents of the Leben Home for Adults to unnecessary prostate surgeries [5].

Leben Home had contracted with ACSS and Americare to perform home health and nursing care services at the facility[6]. Diane Ahearn, an ACSS employee and "medical director" at Leben Home, took responsibility for
scheduling home health aides, acting as a liaison between LebenHome and home health aides, and acting as a liaison between nurses and doctors providing care to residents[7]. Ahearn scheduled appointments for residents with the doctor performing the unnecessary surgeries, and signed transfer forms for residents sent "to other facilities, including Parkway Hospital, where the unnecessary surgeries were performed." [8]

According to the plaintiffs, Ahearn’s close relationship with physicians allowed her to secure the physician approvals necessary for additional Leben House residents to receive services from Americare and ACSS, thus increasing the companies’ revenues [9].

According to the facts of the case, as set forth in Judge Nina Gershon’s July 29th, 2005 order, Ahearn accepted monetary payments from several doctors, including the doctor performing the unnecessary surgeries [10]. Ahearn was involved in obtaining the residents’ signatures for those surgeries [11]. The residents signed blank consent forms, with the area indicating the procedure being consented to left blank [12]. Diane Ahearn agreed to a stipulation that she would never again be employed by, or work as an independent contractor for, any health care facilities
serving individuals with developmental disabilities [13].

Additional settlements Since the Leben Home settlement, Americare has reached two multi-million dollar settlements with the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) in the span of three years.

On November 21, 2005, ACSS agreed to a $7 million settlement with theNew York State Attorney General Medicaid Fraud Control Unit in response to allegations that ACSS improperly billed Medicaid
for unnecessary medical services and personal care that were rendered to residents in adult
homes [14]."

Penn State Said to Be Planning Paterno’s Exit

Joe Paterno’s tenure as coach of the Penn State football team will soon be over, perhaps within days or weeks, in the wake of a sex-abuse scandal that has implicated university officials, according to two people briefed on conversations among the university’s top officials.

The board of trustees has yet to determine the precise timing of Paterno’s exit, but it is clear that the man who has more victories than any other coach at college football’s top level and who made Penn State a prestigious brand will not survive to coach another season. Discussions about how to manage his departure have begun, according to the two people.

Berlusconi pledges to resign

Silvio Berlusconi [Leib Tropper], Italy’s [Monsey's] embattled prime minister [rosha yesheevo], pledged last night that he would resign after parliament [blogosphere] passes a new financial stability law that will implement fresh austerity measures demanded by the European Union [Unorthodox Jew].

Giorgio Napolitano [Jack Perlow], head of state [aguda], said Mr Berlusconi [Mr Tropper] had expressed his recognition of the “urgent need” to respond quickly to the expectations of Europe [Jewishbloggers] through the approval of the stability law, which would be amended in light of the most recent recommendations of the European Commission [Monsey Rabbis -- opposing Tropper].

“With my exit from parliament [kolyaakov], the pressure is now on the opposition to pass this stability law with urgency,” Mr Berlusconi [Mr Tropper] said in a phone call to his own Canale 5 TV [Carnal Vid clips] station.

“After the approval of this finance law ... I will resign, to allow the head of state [aguda] to open consultations,” he added.

Just hours earlier, the 75-year-old prime minister [60 year old overweight roshayesheeva] lost his absolute majority in parliament [eternaljewishfamily] and found himself under intense pressure from his allies and the markets.

Mr Berlusconi [Mr Tropper] said he would consult with leaders of the country’s [aguda's] political [yeshivisha] parties over the next steps to be taken after his resignation. This left open the possibility of Italy [Monsey] heading to elections early next year – in which Mr Berlusconi [Mr Tropper] could decide to run again [chas vesholom] – or possibly the formation of an alternative government [lo aleinu].

“The future does not rest with me, but I see only the possibility of elections [lokshen],” the prime minister [rosha yesheeva] said. “Elections [lokshen] are closer, this government [aguda] is paralysed.”

Ferdinando Casini [Daniel Eidensohn], head of the opposition UDC [BLOGGERS] party, told reporters he was “convinced that Berlusconi [Tropper] understands that the current economic and political situation does not allow for a long and extenuated election campaign [lokshen soup]”."

"It’s Official: Contract Signed With Met Life Stadium for 12th Siyum Hashas

Thursday November 3, 2011

This past Monday evening, askanim and community leaders gathered at MetLife Stadium in Rutherford, New Jersey, for the 12th Siyum Hashas of Daf Yomi to be held at the stadium on Wednesday, 13 Av, 5772/August 1, 2012, this summer.

The contract was signed by representatives of Agudas Yisroel of America and MetLife stadium CEO Mark Lamping.

The Agudah has promoted the Daf Yomi program and organized the Siyum Hashas celebrations since it was first introduced on American shores.

With 92,000 seats, the recently constructed stadium is by far the largest single venue ever to host the national Torah gathering. The remarkable growth of the Siyum Hashas celebrations over the decades was, indeed, a running theme of Monday night’s event, reflected both in the stirring remarks delivered by the evening’s speakers and the scenes from past - and increasingly larger Siyumim - flashing on video screens throughout the reception hall...

Siyum Hashas chairman Elly Kleinman, who was introduced by well-known askan Shmuel Yosef Rieder, observed how the size of each succeeding Siyum inspired thousands more around the world to join the Daf Yomi movement.

Chaired by Agudath Israel executive vice president for finance and administration Rabbi Shlomo Gertzulin, who, together with a committee of dedicated baalei batim, is overseeing the Siyum preparations, the evening’s program also included remarks by community leader Shlomo Werdiger and a tour of the stadium facilities organized by Rabbi Yosef Golding.

Ohel's Dr. Patricia Attia is one heck of a lowlife if she covered up for molesters.

NYU should disown her. Look at the table of contents here from the NYU published book she wrote on frum kids being sexually abused and even exposed to AIDS.

Then she covers up for Ohel?

Why are State officials concerned about Flatbush Hatzolah macher Steve Zakheim buying Peninsula Hospital? It's not just because he's a convicted sex offender.

I've also been trying to make a name for myself lately at NYU. I'm so keen on it that I work as an unpaid volunteer.

I and Dr. Attia are against molestation of any kind.
