    It will not be for the faint-hearted, but I urge everyone to attend. The testimonies are powerful & tragic, the speakers inspiring. By attending, you are stopping these horrendous acts from being committed against yet more children. It’s about justice AND awareness.

    CSA is an “epidemic?” Really? Is there scientific proof for that?

    it for sure was, i dont think it happens today as it did 20 years ago and that is only because we are more aware now and we are talking about it.

    There has been alot of publizing the names of perpetrators. Maybe this embarassment is, indeed, a possible deterrant against abuse. But, keep this in mind: Would you want your name publicized? Don’t think it can happen to you?

    Dov Hikind (one of the first to pioneer vigorous efforts to stop abuse in the frum community) said this: “What is the profile of a child molestor? The answer is, just look in the mirror.”

    Jcw is an organization that is tackling a most important issue as has come to light in recent years the long lasting affect and damage caused by abuse. However like everything in life as Jewish people and especially as chabad chasidim we look towards the torah and words of the Rebbe and the rabonim for guidance. A few points to take into consideration is: Do we have proof about the people who are being publicized as abusers or is it just black mailing (as has been clear in some cases). Are we respecting what the torah has to say or… Read more »

    Parents///pay attention

    When my daughter was threatened with rape…the perpetrators denied it. The school basically ignored our cries. I removed our child immediately. DO NOT ignore this …..do not hush your child when they come and tell you things..do not tell them its lotion hora…go to a lawyer, take action…and remove your child from the abusers way. Lubuvitch have ignored so much abuse..the whole system is weak, weak and failing the children.
