He Calls Him "Glatt"!


I pray that with this publication, peace and closure to the victims of the alleged child molester referred to as "Glatt", is attained to some degree while they are still alive. To the alleged victims that have passed on, may their souls live on with the tranquility knowing that anyone that perpetrates such a heinous act against a child, will be exposed whether they are alive or dead!

UOJ

Excerpts - Page 118 - 120 -- " One Sabbath Afternoon when I was eleven years old I was standing alone at the top of  the steps of the entrance at the Agudah building on Bedford Avenue... Glatt (not his real name), a charismatic leader of the Agudah, came up the steps. Catching me by surprise, this middle aged man seized my arms and pinned my body against the door post. I saw and felt his knee massaging my groin. For a few seconds I was paralyzed with shock and fear. I still vividly remember Glatt's crazed ecstatic look on his face only a few inches away from mine. But despite my innocence I realized that I had become a victim of a  perverted sexual act. What was amazing to me was that the perpetrator was a pious family man and (a) highly respected leader of the Agudah in America. Almost a few weeks later an almost identical encounter occurred when Glatt ambushed me again in an unguarded moment when I was alone in the hallway of the Agudah. Again his face took on that unforgettable crazed look. A few years ago my close boyhood friend Heshy Nagel, who was also a member of the Pirchei Agudah, reminded me about one boy who came forward and disclosed that he too had nearly identical experiences with Glatt, but had been too ashamed to admit it to anyone.  It is possible that Glatt intentionally directed his sexual depredations to two boys that he assessed as vulnerable since we both lacked parental protection...But the look on his face as he violated me was that of a crazed man in the grip of uncontrollable passions...My two brief encounters with Glatt took place in the early 1950s, and probably left no lasting effect on my emotional well being. As an adult looking back, the lesson I have learned is that even the most promising and seemingly saintly religious and community leaders -- especially if they were like Glatt, charismatic personalities -- could be driven by dark and uncontrollable sexual urges. Had he been my teacher and had the opportunity to abuse me on a regular basis, I am sure the impact on me would have been traumatic."

Philip Fishman grew up in the Brooklyn Jewish neighborhood of Williamsburg during the 1950s, when the community experienced a large influx of Hasidic Jewish refugees from Eastern Europe and the area evolved from a multi-ethnic Jewishly heterodox community similar to Jewish neighborhoods in other parts of New York City into a tightly knit re-invention of an ultra-pious East European shtetl. The culture and values of the new arrivals often conflicted sharply with the older community. The fault lines of this kulturkampf were the context of his childhood-and these memoirs vividly describe the personal, familial, and communal tensions associated with this social transformation. Williamsburg's metamorphosis into an exclusively haredi enclave was the first of its kind in the United States, but this neighborhood's profound makeover, with the associated community discord, was soon echoed in many other American locales and is occurring in many Israeli communities. The post-war transformation of Williamsburg foreshadowed a dramatic and ongoing transformation of American Orthodoxy and-more broadly- American Jewish life in the 21st century.

About the Author:

Philip Fishman was a professor of statistics and computer science at the Washington University School of Medicine and a scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Lincoln Laboratory and the MITRE Corporation. He has published numerous papers in scientific journals on information and communication theory and quantitative genetics. Dr. Fishman now devotes his time to Judaic, historical, and scientific study and to writing. He and his wife, Sylvia Barack Fishman, professor of contemporary Jewish life at Brandeis University, live in Newton, Massachusetts.

Solomon Schimmel, Ph.D :

"This book is a gem. Dr. Fishman has exquisitely woven together his personal history growing up in Williamsburg (Brooklyn) from the early forties through the early sixties with astute observations of how the neighborhood transformed over time from a Jewishly pluralistic and tolerant community into a narrow minded often fanatical and xenophobic community dominated by various Hasidic sects most of which consisted of refugees from the Holocaust. Fishman's memory of details of his childhood experiences and feelings, and his reflections on various characters on the Williamsburg stage is impressive and makes for engrossing reading. Although Fishman has many positive memories of Hasidic piety and music, and of Hasidim with strong ethical values, he devotes several chapters to the sordid side of the ultra orthodox and Hasidim, including a chapter on sexual perversity. This book is an essential read for anyone interested in the history of New York's Jews, especially those of Williamsburg which was a major center of Jewish life for many decades".

And can anyone verify Shmarya's claims that Stanley Levitt is being given refuge in a shul in Boston? Why is Shmarya not naming the shul?

Criminal charges were also filed against the owners of Special Education Associates Inc. of Brooklyn, which was one of the city’s busiest SEIT providers this year, with 170 children receiving instruction.

The audit found that the company’s owner, Samuel J. Bernstein (69 Sutton Place in Lawrence), paid his wife, Deena, $150,000 a year as his assistant executive director, while she was earning $90,000 a year as a full-time professor of speech, language and hearing sciences at Lehman College of CUNY.

Mr. Bernstein pleaded guilty to defrauding the government, a felony, and was sentenced in December to five years’ probation. He also paid $610,000 in a civil settlement with the Manhattan district attorney’s office, agreed to a lifetime ban from the pre-K special education program, and sold the business.

His wife, who could not be reached Friday, is due in Bronx Criminal Court on Wednesday to face felony charges of grand larceny and defrauding the government.

Mr. Bernstein, reached at his home in Lawrence, N.Y., criticized the authorities for bringing criminal cases. “We compensated them for what they charged us, and it should have ended there,” he said.

He added that he was disappointed to leave the business, which he entered in 1995. “We did very good work for a very long time,” he said.

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/01/nyregion/included-accused-of-bilking-city-of-millions-in-special-education-funds.html

The owner of a Long Island special-education company misused millions of dollars in public money, employing 11 family members, leasing Cadillacs, and paying a son’s living expenses in California, then fabricating documents to cover his tracks, the state comptroller’s office claimed in an audit.

The audit, which is being issued on Thursday, is the latest to examine the $2 billion preschool special-education program, which relies on contractors to deliver services to more than 60,000 children in the state between 3 and 5 years old who have physical, learning, developmental and other disabilities.

The company, IncludEd Educational Services of Cedarhurst, closed in April, after a reduction in its tuition rate, retroactive to the 2005-6 school year, left it owing the New York City Education Department $3.15 million, officials said on Tuesday.

The state comptroller’s audit found an additional $2.6 million in overbilling from 2007 to 2009.

“Waste, fraud and abuse cannot be tolerated in our special-education programs, but my auditors keep finding it,” the comptroller, Thomas P. DiNapoli, said in a statement. “The state and localities need to improve their management and oversight of special-education providers.”

Auditors referred the findings to the Manhattan district attorney’s office, which has begun its own investigation, officials said.

IncludEd’s owner, Morton Kramer (10 Wentworth Place in Lawrence), did not respond to telephone and e-mail messages on Tuesday.

The preschool program, paid for by state and local governments, is far more expensive in New York than in other states. In New York City, annual costs have surpassed $1 billion, nearly double the amount six years ago.

City and state officials have complained that influential lobbyists for private contractors have blocked efforts in Albany to control costs. Contractors insist that wrongdoing is rare. Critics say the system encourages abuse.

Auditors said that Mr. Kramer billed the program for $30,000 in meals and student-loan payments for relatives; $100,000 for services to children the company could not name or show when they received services; and more than $36,000 for items like cribs and changing pads unrelated to the special-education program.

Mr. Kramer also employed five sons, two daughters, and four of their spouses, but could not supply adequate time records for any of them, auditors said; some missing records later materialized suddenly, and others contained inconsistencies and typographical errors that suggested they had been fabricated, according to the audit.

One of Mr. Kramer’s sons charged the preschool program nearly $60,000 that he said was used to open a satellite office for IncludEd in Los Angeles; but the office was really his apartment, and the money was used to pay a security deposit and to buy an iPhone, among other things, the audit said.

When he was confronted, the audit said, Mr. Kramer said he intended to pay back the improper expenses, and his son admitted that he had “made up” an invoice to obtain reimbursement.

Your title "He calls him glatt" seems to allude to the book "they called him Mike". Does that mean you know that "Glatt" is a reference to Mike Tress? That would certainly qualify as a shocker if it is true.

Are you implying with your clever post title "He Calls Him 'Glatt'" that the alleged child molester identified as "Glatt" in this book is in fact the famous Mike Tress?!?

Vos zogt UOJ? said...

Fishman could be 100% correct but is it possible that Fishman has an axe to grind AND is maybe overblowing a situation where he as an 11 year old boy misbehaved and someone got inappropriately angry & rough with no sexual gratification or intention involved?

The way I perceive Fishman is that he is from the same shnit of ex-YTV as Norman Lamm. I mean, the guy is even married to Sylvia Barack Fishman of Brandeis who conducts the seminars for the radical JOFA feminists!

His buddy Heshy Nagle from what I understand also followed this pattern. He davens by Moses Tendler.

Would you please comment. Was this common knowledge? He was idealized, as you know, in the Agudah-Art Scroll literature? Was everyone ignorant? How does this fit into some of your memories of the period concerning other Agudah personalities?

- נגד -משיבים:1. מדינת ישראל
ב"כ מערערים:1. עו"ד אבנון
ב"כ משיבים:1. עו"ד מזרחי
פסק-דיןהמערער הורשע על פי הודאתו בביצוע עבירות של מעשה מגונה בניגוד לס' 348 (ג) לחוק העונשין תשל"ז - 1977, הדחה בחקירה, עבירה בניגוד לס' 245 (א) לחוק העונשין, התחזות לאדם אחר, עבירה בניגוד לס' 441 לחוק העונשין ושיבוש מהלכי משפט, עבירה בניגוד לס' 244 לחוק העונשין.

סיפור המעשה בתמצית מלמד כי המערער אסף לרכבו את המתלונן וכאשר המתלונן ישב לצידו ביצע בו את מעשיו המגונים.

על כך הוסיף המערער את העבירות של הדחה בחקירה, התחזות לאדם אחר ושיבוש מהלכי משפט שעה שניסה להדיח את אחי המתלונן שהגיע כאשר הוזעק ע"י המתלונן, והמערער בהיותו בתחנת המשטרה הזדהה בשמו של אחיו.

בית משפט קמא גזר על המערער מאסר בפועל של 12 חודשים ומאסר על תנאי של 6 חודשים לבל יעבור על העבירות בהן הורשע לרבות נסיון בהם וכל עבירת מין אחרת.

לחובתו של המערער הרשעות קודמות בעבירות רכוש, בריחה ממשמורת חוקית, קבלת דבר במרמה, תקיפה מינית של אדם מתחת לגיל 16, הונאה בכרטיס חיוב, נסיון לקבלת דבר במרמה, זיוף, שימוש במסמך מזויף והשתתפות בהתפרעות.

ב"כ המערער מלין על חומרת העונש לטעמו, מפרט בהודעת הערעור את נסיבות העבירה, את התנאים הקשים בהם גדל המערער, את מסלול חייו, את הארוע הטראומטי בילדותו.

ראינו לקבל תסקיר שרות מבחן בעניינו של המערער ותסקיר זה המונח בפנינו מלמד כי מדובר במערער בעל נטיה להתנהגות מניפולטיבית, נוטה לטשטש ולהסתיר מידע, מתקשה לחשוף אינפורמציה מלאה, התסקיר מלמד על תאונת הדרכים הקשה במשפחת המערער, הטראומה שחווה בגיל 16 בהיותו במעון עת נאנס על פי המפורט ע"י אחרים.

התסקיר מפרט את משפחת המוצא של המערער, מצב משפחתו הקשה, הסתבכותו בעבירות פליליות.

תסקיר שרות המבחן מלמד כי המערער לא נטל בעבר אחריות על מעשיו ובאישיותו קווים מניפולטיביים.

המערער נטל אחריות על מעשיו נשוא הערעור כאן, לדבריו בפני שרות המבחן לא היה ער למעשיו, הביע חרטה, הצביע על קשייו הכלכליים והמשפחתיים.

לדעת שרות המבחן, המערער זקוק לטיפול, רב הנסתר על הגלוי באשר למערער ואין המלצה טיפולית למרות שהנו זקוק לכך עקב דחפיו המיניים וזאת, לאור עבירות אחרות המיוחסות לו ובהיותו עצור עד תום ההליכים.

שקלנו ובחנו את מכלול הנסיבות באשר למערער, לא התעלמנו כמובן מהטראומה הקשה ביותר אותה עבר המערער אך למסקנתינו, כל אלה אין בהם כדי להיות לעזר למערער.

מדובר במעשים חמורים ביותר, המערער היה ער לדרך הנלוזה בה נהג, מדובר במערער אשר חזר לסורו פעם אחר פעם, תסקיר שרות המבחן בד בבד עם ההצבעה על הטראומה הקשה מצביע גם על היות המערער מניפולטיבי.

בית משפט קמא שקל את המכלול ופסק דינו בנסיבות ראוי ומאוזן.

Despite tearful pleas from victims, a judge sentenced a one-time religious instructor for a prominent Brookline school to 10 years probation Thursday for sexually abusing three of his students in Boston during the 1975-1976 school year.

The sentence for Rabbi Stanley Z. Levitt, who pleaded guilty Wednesday to four counts of ­indecent assault and battery on a child, stunned and angered the victims, who gathered in the ­Suffolk Superior courtroom to face their abuser and witness the sentencing. Levitt was also ordered to stay away from children, register as a sex offender, and wear a GPS monitor.

Regarding the New Square Serial Molester, The Rabbi Of Skver knew about all the claims regarding Breuer the whole time and did nothing, the only reason why he eventually left Skver is because he finally molested a Twersky, one of the Rabbis grandchildren.

David Twersky of New Square is a failure as a human, a rabbi, and a leader. He is in fact not a leader at all as has been proven time and again. But throw a white beard, a famous surname, and propensity to gesticulate on this guy and all the brainless dopes will keep running to him to shower him in money.

Anyone ever heard this before? The Ad Kan blog has a post in the comments section saying there are unverified shemuos that Rabbi Shmuel Hiller who owns Bnos Bais Yaakov is a child molester AND a womanizer who cheated on his wife. He is definitely very slimy and also has a certain charisma before you see his dark side, but I never heard anything really bad like that before. The lady who runs the blog claims that nothing is allowed up without approval of her daas Torah and she has removed some stuff before, but this is up for months.

shmuel hiller checks out every single interviewing mother to see if they are dressing too prust for his yeshivishe standards. why can't one of the women principals do it for him especially considering 5 towns a lot of the mothers who get rejected are dressing too suggestively. reminds me of a sicko who was in chaim berlin who used to get his thrills by going to manhattan bars to stare for hours at scantily clad women. he was too chicken to make a move but still got big thrills from staring. then he started trying to drag other bochurim along with him

Inspector Clouseau said...

It's true that Pinto is a con artist but I think Shmarya is in error when he blames him for the Chazon Yeshaya scandal regarding the funds embezzled from Holocaust survivors. Chazon Yeshaya was founded 15 years ago by Rabbi Avraham Israel and led by him ever since. What is Shmarya's "proof" that Pinto is the mastermind & real owner? He dug up a document from the Israeli Interior Ministry that is over 5 years old showing a name change to Pinto's current Shuva Yisrael organization. But what Shmarya is too ignorant to have figured out is that the name change is probably from Pinto's Chazon Yoshiyahu which an equally ignorant Israeli government clerk confused with Yeshayahu.

To convince everyone of his faulty detective work, Shmarya rewrote an article from Haaretz that no one can read without a paid subscription. I am willing to bet that Shmarya is too cheap to pay or is just plain lying, so he just added in Pinto's name when rewriting the article even though I'm sure Pinto's name is not mentioned there. It certainly doesn't come up in search engines which will give you a sentence of a restricted article if the word is present.

Shmarya is a real life Inspector Clouseau

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inspector_Clouseau#Overview

Clouseau is the bumbling and incompetent police inspector of the French Sûreté, whose investigations are marked with chaos and destruction that he himself largely causes. His clumsy attempts at solving the case frequently lead to misfortune for himself and others

She did this once before with Edery from Landau's shul on Ave L. Even though Edery has been convicted of molesting kids, she was pressured to take down the post. When the post disappeared there was an uproar and she put it back up.

One blogger has a different angle how Shmarya got it wrong to blame Rabbi Pinto for the embezzlement. He says there is more than one organization in Israel that goes by the name Shuva Yisrael

Shmarya made a similar mistake recently when he blamed the Agudah for some lame issues related to the food at the Siyum Hashas. When readers were able to prove it was due to MetLife Stadium management as the Agudah had no input, not even his usual supporters backed him. But you know Shmarya. He can never admit making a mistake so he jumped up yelling insults at everyone and refused to back down.
