An Open Secret: Rabbi Heshi Nussbaum's abuse of boys in Toronto's Jewish community
We hear a troubling story of a Toronto rabbi who assaulted young boys in his care and how --despite allegations and rumours in the Jewish community-- it took decades to bring him to justice.
The Current's Howard Goldenthal once knew the rabbi. He went on a journey to understand how the crimes could go unpunished for so many years. This is his documentary: An Open Secret.
We spoke with Heshi Nussbaum's lawyer. He passed on our request to interview his client, but Heshi Nussbaum said he did not want to participate in this documentary.
