The JCW event with a packed house and not-a-pin-drop silent and awestruck community succeeded in presenting CSA …however, as Rabbi Tauber so clearly and succinctly said “WHY did they have to reach out to a Rabbi all the way from California…what about all the Rabbis here in South Florida” and to that I say..”What about”…yes. there was a sprinkling of bona-fides and it was brought to our attention however I don’t think we can be complacent…any Rabbi worth his smicha should without hesitation show his support..by showing up.By signing on..Thank you Meyer,Eli, Dr.Goldwasser,Rabbi Tauber,RoshLowe ,BB , Yoni…and all the chevrah..thank… Read more »

No community is immune! There are still too many Rabbis that deny it is a problem and don’t “get it”.

Clear psak...

Those of us who always felt it was mandatory to report abuse were stymied back in the 80’s and 90’s by the lack of a clear psak and the fear of violating “mesirah.” A clear psak in this area is all that most folks were waiting for! Thank you.

There is no greater Kiddush Hashem than the strong voice of enough is enough. Moshiach is about to come.

Thank You Aventura Chabad for hosting. Great dynamic community

Can someone please explain why out of 400 people there were maybe 4 rabbies present?
The Rav of each kehila should have been there
what a shame
this generation has no respect of rabonim
BUT CAN YOU BLAME THEM?????

Who are we kidding? Go to the police and report them . it’s not loshon hora these abusers have ruined people’s lives.Contact people who know what to do . it’s bloodshed and must be dealt with…Every principal in Crown Heights knows what’s going on for the past 30 years. Eliminate the perpetrators now!!!!!

Maybe if you would be updated with your information that all the cases of abuse were more than 23 years ago and since then Melbourne has been number one for child abuse and I dont think they need more organisations to show them what to do as of now they are looking after the situation 10 times better than any other organisation

JCW – regarding your statement as the # of local rabbis at the JCW event 4!) It’s as Eli Nash said in his speech; explaining why they flew down the amazing Rav Tauber to speak. They called all the local rabbonim and no one wanted to be the one to represent (chalila) the Rav who stands by the victim. It’s a tragedy in Miami and all over!

I happen to be one .. and I was never invited to the event other than seeing it on facebook… If that was such a concern … JCW ,who’s mission I do support , needed to do a better job of reaching out to the miami rabbis … In addition while I wholehartedly support the mission of JCW there have been articles and comments on their website that I feel could be taken as anti-frum instead of sticking to the clear and specific mission of ending abuse in our community, and supporting the vicitms. … I would still have come,… Read more »

Good for you, Miami! A rabbinate that doesn’t participate in events such as was held in the Adventura community, is not a rabbi. Rabbis, I hate to be the one to inform you, but you must gather your strength, scruples and just plain chutzpah and be the kind of men we look to lead the way, to help those suffering, to show us the Jewish Torah way to behave in protecting the victims and prosecuting the vicitimizers!

True there may not have been rabbonim, but there were many rabbis and shluchim present who came to support JCW, and as the awareness spreads, the numbers will certainly increase!
