Leading Orthodox Rabbi Encourages Silence in Child Sexual Abuse Reports

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

According to a leading American Orthodox rabbi, child sexual abuse should be reported to rabbis and not the police. Shmuel Kamenetsky, the vice president of Agudath Israel of America’s Supreme Council of Rabbinic Ages, addressed a crowd in Brooklyn on July 12, and stated that sexual abuse of a child is a matter that should be reported to a rabbi, who would then determine if the police should be contacted.

Kamenetsky’s speech was made as the search for 8-year-old Lieby Kletzky was being conducted. The boy’s dismembered body was found the following day in a dumpster and in the apartment of Levi Aron, reported Jewish & Israel News. On July 21, Aron was indicted for the murder of Kletzky.

According to a report by the New York Post, Kamenetsky was repeating Agudath Israel of America’s official policy which bans Jews from reporting sexual child abuse to police. The Orthodox group believes that “someone who suspects sexual abuse by a community member must first consult a rabbi ‘with experience in these issues.’”

“There are prohibitions and a psychological fear about saying bad things about people or talking about negative things that bring shame,” said Michael Salamon, a Long Island, N.Y. psychologist.

The taboo of including the outside-world may result in tragic consequences for the Jewish community.

There are reports that Levi Aron tried to abduct another young boy near his house, but the incident was never reported to the police.

In November 2009, Motty Berger, 24, jumped to his death from a Williamsburg hotel after confiding to relatives that he was molested while attending a yeshiva; the allegations were never reported to the police.

In the early 1990s, David Kramer, a former teacher at the Yeshiva College in East St. Kilda, fled Australia after parents accused him of sexually abusing their sons, reported BigPond News.

The allegations were never reported to the police, and parents claim the risk of their children being removed from the school caused them not to involve law enforcement.

The Victorian police plan to meet with Jewish community leaders, in an effort to receive their approval for former students of the Orthodox school to come forward with similar accusations of abuse by Kramer.

In 2007, the runaway teach was incarcerated in the U.S. for molesting a 12-year-old boy, while Kramer was conducting a youth program in a St. Louis synagogue.
