Advocates for Orthodox Jewish Sex Abuse Cancel Meeting with Brooklyn DA

Sex abuse advocates, working with victims of the ongoing Orthodox Jewish sex abuse scandal, have canceled a meeting with the Brooklyn district attorney.

Advocates canceled the meeting with Brooklyn DA Charles Hynes, saying he ignored their request for reforms, wrote The New York Daily News. A number of key Jewish advocates expressed anger that the DA will still not release the names of alleged molesters in the tight-knit Brooklyn community. The DA, according to the advocates also refused to work with yeshivas on education programs and to take any action against thoseknown to harass victims, such as rabbis and community officials, The Daily News pointed out.

“This is the same game. Since he has to appease the rabbis in Brooklyn he should send all the Jewish cases to Staten Island,” Mark Meyer Appel, founder of child advocacy group, Voice of Justice, said in response to Hynes’ decision to defer another case (the Vito Lopez investigation) over political ties. Hynes’ camp disagreed; the DA’s chief spokesman, Jerry Schmetterer, said, “It’s an ongoing process. We are all happy on this end to continue.”

NewsInferno, which has long been following a variety of sex abuse scandals, explained that, in 2009, Hynes, instituted the Kol Tzedek (Voice of Justice) program created to help more victims in the ultra-Orthodox community come forward about the abuse. Kol Tzedek, however, has been mired in controversy because prosecutors refuse to reveal the names of those accused. In fact, Hynes argues that keeping the names secret protects victims. Hynes has also been accused of ignoring some sex abuse cases to gain political support from a number of powerful Hasidic rabbis.

But advocates argue that victims’ names are known throughout the community while molesters’ identities remain protected, along with details of the allegations. In other communities, DAs release molester names, the Daily News noted.

Meanwhile, Appel and Asher Lipner, another activist, have opted against another meeting without significant changes in policy. “There’s no point in going,” Appel told The Daily News. As for Hynes, he said, “My policy is succeeding. Anyone who expresses outrage is not being practical.” Hynes met with the advocates on June 9, promising to meet monthly.

Joel Engelman, 26, the advocacy group leader said a number of other activists were upset by the fact that no meaningful changes have been made. “We intend to continue these meetings,” he said. No new date has been set,” Engelman told The Daily News.

One member of the activist group suggested that future meetings with the DA include those top Hasidic rabbis who have long defended alleged molesters and denigrated victims. Such leaders have been known to toss victims out of their religious schools and shun victims’ families from local synagogues. Hynes cringed at the suggestion.
