Pig on the loose

 There is a  Pig on the loose! There is a mega filthy lowlife on the loose and it is critical that you stay away from this piece of rubbish

מילך לייפער a self pronounced psychologist is roaming the streets and plundering on young couples. He supposedly is there to “help them” in their marriages, and before you know it he rapes them and abuses them in the name of love and training.
Scumbag Elimelech Leifer

Rapist and abuser מילך לייפער (Elimelech Leifer) was born in 1959 in Montreal Canada, and as a small boy moved to Antwerp Belgium. This scum bag has been a fraud and a swindler all his life, hurt hundreds of people on the way, stole thousands of dollars and has a despicable record of preying on the unfortunate and milking them out of money and everything else possible.

In the teen years his parents sent him to a local Rabbi as a live-in student, in order to salvage his life, but were quickly released when he tried to rape the Rabbis daughter.

This skunk is a danger to society and a menace to humanity! Stay far far away from this animal or you will pay bitter consequences. This dirt is a shrewd man and his victims are plenty! I have spoken to some of them and it is incredible how sneaky this low life is and how he was able to get away with it.

The local authorities are finally on to him, and are finally being monitored and it seems that some of the victim are slowly starting to tell the abuse he put them through!

This picture on the left is of last year purim, he was dressed up as a hipi! this is how he should really look all year around and the above picture is what he should look on Purim, since he is a fraud all year round.

This scumbag also opened a hotel / whorehouse on the 87 in New York. There was terrible abuse there. He had undercover cameras in the rooms and did terrible stuff. But the State police finally caught up to him within the past 2 weeks and the hotel/ brothel is temporary closed.

Here is a sample of his “one on one” sessions with a future victim! Discretion is advised, since this sewer is spewing filth and soil!

Admins note: We did editing on this audio tape and muted the voice of the victim - but did not alter his part at all

Emergency Update:

In only 2 hours this article has been up, we have gotten astonishing emails regarding this scumbag. It seems, his victims are all over the world!

Listen up you fertilizer! After Yom Tov we will get on your case and  destroy your rape and sodomy business. We will put a big lock on it, and put a stop to your games!

The light at the end of the Tunnel

Rabbi nuchem has gotten many calls from three Rabbis (all of which, have signed the isolation letter against him) that they want to sit down and talk.

Let me be the first to tell you that when I heard this from Rabbi Nuchem, I said to myself, I think he is hallucinating and a bit feverish. Why would they want to sit with him? A person they hate so much. So I did a little of investigating of my own and saw that it is all true.

I will not mention all the names right now but I will mention Rabbi Israel Hager from Monsey. I did my research and confirmed it with  different sources’, and I will tell you what is going on here.

I will break you down different factors.
1. The problem
2. The solution
3. The record, and
4. the guilty conscious

The Problem
The rabbis and the community leaders have known all along that there is a major problem in our community with child abuse, molestation, unqualified teachers and covering up the problem. However, they had a major dilemma how to tackle this issue for many reasons and different people had agendas why to cover it up.

It came to a point where young children who were molested in the past, grew up and started families of their own. These young men and women are not made of the “Hungarian Marmaroshe” material that you put on a set of blinders and go with the program. These were people that wanted action, and wanted to see there children be in a safe environments.

As these people were complaining, the School principals and rabbis for obvious and multiple reasons shushed them up. They knew their job was on the line, they knew who the culprits are and they knew that the complaints are legit.

One nice day, along came a man named Nuchem Rosenberg. He started to complain and wanted answers, so these rabbis did what they do best they warned him to shut up or else. Little did they know that this time its not going to work. They had a major problem on their hands. There is this “Meshigene guy” that does not take NO for an answer. What are we to do? We have to shut him up! He can expose us all.

We all know how they dealt with it. They Put Rabbi Rosenberg is Cheirem (isolation) and they were so proud with themselves and they thought, “We got him good”

(I will come back to the cheirem part soon and discuss how baseless it is and how it means nothing and most of all Most REAL EHRLICHE YIDEN laugh at this Cheirem and by Now even the ones who signed it, laugh at it and they are sick with the signature they give for it.)

The bottom line was tough, every one knew THEN that there is a problem and everyone knows NOW that there is a problem and it is very clear that there is only one man doing something to tackle this problem and without Rabbi nuchem our streets would’ve looked like “The village” in the city. Hashem yerachem!

The solution
In the United States, punishment has always been the primary goal to achieve when dealing with individuals who commit acts of crime. Many theorists throughout history have argued which is more effective, punishment or rehabilitation. The effectiveness of punishment and rehabilitation has been analyzed to see the effects on victims and offenders and also the social and fiscal impact on our society.

The Classical School of Criminology has proposed that punishment is used to create deterrence and the Positive School of Criminology uses the practice of rehabilitation to reduce recidivism. Deterrence is one of the primary goals in the criminal justice system and it is described as special or specific deterrence and general deterrence. The purpose of special/specific deterrence is to instill fear on the offender so that they will not commit future crime. General deterrence is based on punishing offenders to instill fear in society, otherwise known as teaching society a lesson and showing the consequences of committing crime.

Punishment has always been imposed based on the idea that it will deter individuals from committing crime or repeating criminal acts. Incapacitation has been the most common form of punishment, however research demonstrates that recidivism amongst convicted felons following release from prison is as high as 63% and that most prison inmates had arrest records and convictions prior to their current offense. (Bureau of Justice Statistics, 1989) Punishment through incarceration is a temporary fix to crime while the offender is confined. The maximum sentence of life in prison and the death penalty has even been debated on whether they are deterrence to crime. There are so many underlying factors within the criminal justice system that may contribute to why punishment has not been as effective as anticipated such as the appeal process in death penalty cases and the length of time that an offender sits on death row.

Others argue that rehabilitation is a more permanent fix in deterring crime. Rehabilitation through community supervision can have a more lasting effect on individuals and deter them from committing future crime if they learn how to adapt in society by gaining academic or trade skills. These programs can help offenders find employment and secure an important role in the community and give them a sense of being. Therapy is another form of rehabilitation needed to help deter individuals from committing future crime. Some examples of therapy include drug therapy to those offenders addicted to drugs and psychological counseling to those offenders who grew up in an abusive household. Rehabilitation is based on creating a change in the criminal's attitude or resources so that crime is neither a desired nor necessary activity. When an individual is sentenced to probation, it gives them the opportunity to remain self-supporting within the community and not using the taxpayer and states money to house them in a correctional facility.
Victim Impact
In many cases, victim rights tend to be overshadowed by the rights of the accused. The courts are obligated to give a defendant their Constitutional rights including the right to a speedy trial, the right to counsel, the right to confront witnesses, and due process under the law. Up until recently, victim's rights were never recognized as an important role in the criminal justice system. In the past, victims and their families were often treated as inconveniences, ignored throughout trial proceedings, and sometimes even forced to stay out of the courtroom as the proceedings went on. These issues have caused many victims to feel neglected and even re-victimized by the courts. On October 30th, 2004, The Crime Victims' Rights Act was signed into law by President Bush to guarantee rights to victims of federal crime. These rights include, to be reasonably protected from the accused offender and to receive reasonable and timely notice of any public proceeding involving the crime or of any public proceeding.

The majority of society, including victims of crime prefers swift punishment to rehabilitation through community supervision. According to the BJS Sourcebook of Criminal Justice Statistics, more than three-quarters of the public see punishment as the primary justification for sentencing. They also report that more than 70 percent believe that incapacitation is the only sure way to prevent future crimes, and more than three-quarters believe that the courts are too easy on criminals. Public opinion supports the increased use of prisons to give criminals just desserts.

When a victim or the victims' family feels that their offender does not receive the appropriate sentence, it causes emotional stress and also financial strain when restitution is not implemented.

Community supervision can also benefit victims in certain ways. When an offender is sentenced to intense supervision through probation, they have the ability to pay restitution through employment.

Other forms of rehabilitation through community supervision may also benefit a victim or their families such as programs such as one that was introduced in my county. The program is a group of victims called the Victim Impact Panel who talk to offenders that are convicted of drunk driving. These individuals are brought face to face with victims and their family members of drunk driving. These programs have high hopes of deterring individuals from committing such acts.

Offender Impact
Punishment through incarceration has many effects on convicted criminals. Incarceration has many effects on the offender psychological well-being. When an offender is separated from their family, it causes severe depression. Supporters of rehabilitation versus punishment argue that sentencing offenders to incarceration hurt the family structure by contributing to single parenting. They also argue that punishment causes social disorientation, alienation, and also increases the risk of recidivism. When an offender is released from incarceration, they face social isolation, stigmatism, economic and employment challenges. Rehabilitation through community supervision eliminates many of these issues, such as the economic & employment factor. Probation allows offenders to remain with their families, continue working or find employment under close supervision.

Drug Courts
There are certain crimes that would benefit from rehabilitation more so than punishment, such as non-violent drug related. Criminals who commit acts of crimes to support their drug habit need treatment more than punishment. In many states, such as New York, Drug courts have been established. Drug courts represent the coordinated efforts of the judiciary, prosecution, defense bar, probation, law enforcement, mental health, social service, and treatment communities to actively and forcefully intervene and break the cycle of substance abuse, addiction, and crime. Drug courts quickly identify substance-abusing offenders and place them under strict court monitoring and community supervision, coupled with effective, long-term treatment services. The National Drug Court Institute describes the process that a participant as an intense regimen of substance abuse and mental health treatment, case management, drug testing, and probation supervision while reporting to regularly scheduled status hearings before a judge. In addition, drug courts may provide job skill training, family/group counseling, and many other life-skill enhancement services. Data consistently show that treatment, when completed is effective and loss more cost effective.

Social Impact upon Society
The social impact of punishment and rehabilitation varies from the increasing costs of correctional facilities to the disruption of families to the fear of criminals released into community. Society's view plays a major role in the criminal justice system. Society's belief's in the "just desserts" theory has played a role in the courts. The push for mandatory sentencing has even entered political campaigns in response to the public. "Getting tough on crime" was the basis behind different mandatory sentencing practices. The increase of correctional facilities is also related to society's impact on punishment versus rehabilitation.

All of the above are for crimes that don’t impact the victim for life (i.e. drugs, theft, ) and the victims are mostly adults. However when comes to pedophilia, there is a while new debate: Is pedophilia a disease to be treated, or a crime to be punished? Are people who seduce minors sick or evil? Our current legal and medical systems blur both views. We call for the most draconian punishments (life imprisonment, castration, permanent exile) precisely because we view these acts as morally heinous, yet also driven by uncontrollable biological urges. if IIIfsex with children is truly the product of freely made moral choices, then we should deal with it through the criminal justice system. But if it is a genetically over-determined impulse, an uncontrollable urge nestled in our DNA, then punishing pedophiles must be morally wrong. As science—and culture—increasingly medicalizes bad behavior, finding a neurological component to everything from alcoholism to youth violence, we run the parallel risks of either absolving everyone for everything, or punishing "criminals" who are no guiltier than cancer patients.

What science has revealed about the moral/medical roots of pedophiles is, of course, ambiguous. What is clear is that the binary choice laid out above is an oversimplification. The medical community, which started to view pedophilia as a disease rather than a crime in the 19th century, has amassed evidence that at least some violent and antisocial behaviors have genetic links and signposts. But researchers have been unable to isolate a biological cause for pedophilia, or even to agree on a personality profile. Not to mention the terrific confusion within the medical community in defining what this "disease" really involves. Until a few years ago, for example, the DSM-IV—the Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders—defined pedophilia as a disease only if the sufferer's "fantasies, sexual urges, or behaviors cause clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning." In other words, a non-impaired, remorseless pedophile was apparently perfectly healthy.

There are 2 types of molesters. Some Molesters engage in sex with children for a variety of reasons and sometimes these reasons have little to do with sexual desires. This type of offender, called a situational child molester, does not possess a genuine sexual preference for children. Rather, the motivational factors are criminal in nature. In some cases, the offender's sexual abuse of young people is a natural outgrowth of other forms of abuse in his life. That abuse is a continuation of a process by which he has mistreated his friends, colleagues, spouse and family members. He will have low self-esteem, maintain poor moral standards and view sex with children as an opportunity to prolong the violence that is already an active component of his existence. Other situational offenders see children as a substitute for an adult partner. Although these types of offenders do not harbor a singular sexual desire for children, they may react to a built up sexual impulse or anger, that to them, is irresistible. However, the victim is incidental. It could have been a store clerk, an elderly person or simply a woman walking down a lonely street. Because of the circumstances at hand, , the victim happened to be a child. His main criterion for a victim is availability.

The most common molester is defined as a preferential child molester. These offenders have a sexual preference for children and usually maintain these desires throughout their lives. Preferential child molesters can have an astounding number of victims and these crimes can remain undiscovered for many years. In 1995, a child molestation case in Texas caused a national uproar when the suspect was due to be released from prison after serving a six-year sentence for the rape of a 6year-old boy. He told the police that he got away with abusing over 240 children before getting caught for molesting a single child and if released, would do it again.
One long-term study of hundreds of sex offenders found that the pedophile child molester committed an average of 281 acts with 150 partners. These types of offenders wreak havoc upon society far out of proportion to their numbers.

The preferential child molester exhibits distinct patterns of behavior that are common among his kind. They will seduce children by buying gifts and appealing to their emotional weakness. This requires the offender to develop a friendship with the child or utilize an existing relationship with the victim. In more than 90 percent of the rapes of children less than 12 years old, the offender knew the victim (U.S. Department of Justice). Other offenders will engage in self-exposure or personally harass children. Simply stated, the preferential child molester is a pedophile who has carried his fantasies and desires into reality. A small minority of these types of offenders may be sadistic in nature and inflict pain or torture upon their victims. These individuals, like any other criminal, can be brutal and sadistic. Such an individual was Britain's most famous and despised child molester, Bill Malcolm.
In 1981, Malcolm was convicted of raping a 3-year-old girl and sent to prison. When he was released in 1984, he returned to rape the same terrified girl who was then 6 years old. Malcolm was angry that she had identified him as the rapist. He later told cops he wanted revenge. He was charged again in 1994 with rape and assault on four children who he allegedly tied to a bed and forced to perform sex acts. A judge later made a favorable ruling in Malcolm's case and he walked out of the courtroom a free man. But child molesters evoke little sympathy from the general public. On February 18 2000, two men showed up at Malcolm's doorstep and promptly put a bullet in his head. One person said what a lot of Londoners were feeling: "Whoever did this deserves a medal!" N.Y. Post, February 20, 2000).

The bottom line is clear that for 99% of child molesters there is only one solution, and that is to put him behind bars and throw away the key otherwise he will rape and molest again.

The Record.
The record of the rabbis in our community is a terrible one. They have never taken the side of the victim and always taken the side of the abuser. And there are many reasons for it.

1.   The molesters are con artists. They put up a face in front of the Rabbi and start crying “I made a mistake” “I do Teshuva” and most of these rabbis buy it. Hence, Yichiel “Jerry” Brauner (who incidentally is a first cousin to Rabbi Rosenberg – and to the Rabbis credit he has been going strong after this piece of filth) who molested thousands upon thousands of kids, went to Skulener rabbi every time he was caught and cried “I am sorry” and the rabbi bought his bull shit, told him to say Tehillim 3 times and the rabbi urged the victims to drop the charges. There are multiple stories similar to this one.

2.   Most rabbis are not qualified to handle this problem. They have no idea how to deal with it, and they should not get involved with things they don’t know. They should all get a course in child molestations patterns and history of predators and then they will see how you are supposed to deal with it.

3.   NO GUTS! They can not make a controversy tough decision. Its all about their own standing in the community and their own image. And until that changes, there is nothing to bring to the table. They must be able to make a tough strong decision and not be scared of the consequences.

In conclusion. The records of our Rabbis are sickening and horrendous! Until the HOLY Rabbi Nuchem took a stand in this community, there was a free-for-all for every predator. And at the current status, if Rabbi Nuchem would go away and leave it to the rabbis, our streets would become a garden of eden to the child molesters. NO QUESTION ABOUT IT!

The guilty conscious
It has come now to a point, that the Rabbis are seeing the big Boo-Boo they made here. They know they goofed up, they know the molestations in our community, they know the schools and the mikvahs are a paradise to the abusers, they know that they are mostly to blame for sitting back and not only doing nothing, but making it possible for these monsters to go with their dirty work. And most of all THEY KNOW THAT Rabbi NUCHEM WAS RIGHT ALL ALONG!

So their conscious is playing on their minds and now they want to “talk”! they send messages upon messages they want to “sit down” and discuss the issues. Well rabbis let me spell it out to you and give you some guidelines you must agree before wasting your time. And here is your check list.

1. There will be no restrictions and protecting of anyone (including a Rabbi who supports molesters).
2. The hotline won’t shut down until Rabbi Nuchem feels that the time has come that it is not needed anymore.
3. You will show rabbi nuchem a “legit blueprint” on what you plan to do with the next molester you catch! (The kosover chasirs way of punishing him by putting the books every night in the case, is not a very productive one.)
4. You will set up a office for the community in the center of  Lee Ave. and  13th Ave that takes every kids accusations seriously and thoroughly investigated. and then given over to the Police dept.
5. You will introduce “prevention and education” in our school system

Once you show an effort and a willingness to make some legit suggestions and progress, that’s when you can “sit down” with Rabbi Nuchem. But before you are willing to do something real and all you want to do is “talk” and therapy for your conscious”? Don’t waste your time! It didn’t work 3 years ago and it won’t work now!

In essence Rabbi Nuchem should not even give you guys the time of the day after what you did to him, but for the sake of the children and the sake of clean streets and clean class rooms, he is willing to do it once you obliged the above mentioned criteria.

ויזכר להם בריתו וינחם כרב חסדיו

The following is a video of a child molester in prison! Guys, think twice what you are doing, if the morality of this crime does not phase you, maybe this video will!

The beatings that this prisoner got, took over an hour before the guiards broke it up. You think they didn’t know? Haha think again!

No one except our local rabbis could care less what happens to these molesters.

This next one was in Mexico. They caught him in the act and they didn’t wait for the police. In our schools he would’ve gotten a “warning” and he would’ve been sentenced to 10 hours of helping put away the seforim in the shul. Great going!

You must check out the following two videos. In short: This man was molested as a kid by a family member, went to his father, and his father didn’t believe him, And of course his younger brother was raped too, so he took to the airways. (sounds familiar?)

Let me warn you these two videos are extremely full of foul language, as the victim can't control his rage, but it’s a must for every parent to watch.

I sometimes think to myself, what would it take for people to open their eyes and see what’s going on? Why are people so reluctant to protect their kids? Why is it when I was a victim of a teacher, and came forward after struggling long and hard, there were still people who said I am a liar?

I will tell you one thing though. After the fact, if G-d forbids your family member became a victim of molestation, you will kick yourself forever for not listening; you will tear your hair from your head for not being aggressive in fighting this terrible plague and cancer in our community.

I must be able to get through to you BEFORE this happens to your loved one. Please, I am asking for 10 minutes of your time, so your kid does NOT look like this guy in the video! Get involved in your community and demand protection for your child.

Get over it!

Someone who is not an alcoholic can not understand how a man would drink so much, get wasted, and put his entire family in danger. Some who is not addicted to painkillers can not comprehend how a perfectly smart man would jeopardize his family and his life for a little bit of cocaine.

The Talmud teaches us ואל תדון את חברך עד שתגיע למקומו “don't judge your friend until you are in his place”. People wonder why victims are still angry 20 and 30 years later? Why bring up stories of people that are dead already? Why not just move on? Let it go and continue with your life!

Well it is impossible to explain this to someone who is lucky enough not to go through this pain, let me show you a video and an article of a victim, perhaps that will open your mind and get a glimpse of pain that a human can have, and why it is so necessary to get closure and healing.

Warning: Video contains foul language
The case cannot be prosecuted because the statute of limitations for such a crime has passed.

(Sept. 21) -- A New York Web designer obsessed with finding the person who molested him 40 years ago finally tracked down and confronted his alleged attacker. Then the man admitted to the sexual assaults in a covert videotape that is now on YouTube.

Ron Tebo, 47, says he and one of his three younger sisters were sexually assaulted in 1970 by a teenage neighbor nicknamed "Butch," who brought a brother along as a lookout. The attack happened inside a 1957 Ford Fairlane parked in the back of Tebo's home in a small town in rural New York.

Tebo says he was assaulted several other times by Butch but never told his single mother or grandmother. After helping track down a pedophile in California, he decided to aggressively seek out his own attacker in 2007. By then, his mother and grandmother had died and wouldn't have to endure the pain of that long-ago incident.

So the next best thing in Tebo's mind would be to expose Butch to the world, which Tebo has done on awebsite titled "Finding Butch -- one man's journey to find the neighbor who abused him." Tebo has posted an 11-minute video of his confrontation with Butch, who still lives not far from their boyhood homes. AOL News has an abbreviated version of this tape and has blurred the face of Butch.

"When I found him, I was scared," Tebo told AOL News. "How was I going to spring this on him? My intention was to get a confession, that's what I wanted to do, that was my goal."

In the tape, made last month, Tebo interrogates Butch, who says, "Well, I'm sorry, I don't know what you want me to do. I'm sorry, I truly am. I moved on with my life and I hope you made something of yours and I'm sorry."

The man is asked how many of Tebo's sisters he molested.

"One of them," Butch replies.

Butch is also asked if he remembered a car parked on the property. He acknowledges that it was a Ford Fairlane. He apologizes numerous times, saying he has children and has turned his life around.

Calls to Butch seeking comment were not returned.

Investigator Tom Spulecki with the New York State Police Department said he spoke to Tebo about the case and then contacted the Erie County District Attorney's Office, but was told the case could not be filed.

"It was their decision that they couldn't take it any further," Spulecki told AOL News.

The law changed in 2006, eliminating the statute of limitations on certain sex crimes, but it is not retroactive.

"Of course it's frustrating," said DA bureau chief Rosanne Johnson of her inability to prosecute old sex crimes even though she may have confessions.

"One of our last conversations was that he wanted some closure and wasn't sure what he would do when he found him," Spulecki said of Tebo.

But in the wake of confronting his alleged attacker, Tebo has decided to forge ahead and see if Butch had molested anyone else. Tebo also seeks to help other molestation victims find closure by helping them confront their emotions.

A Web designer, Tebo stepped into the spotlight in 2007, when he began tracking down Jack McClellan, an admitted pedophile who cruised the West Coast and talked openly about his exploits on a website, Seattle-Tacoma-Everett Girl Love.

An anti-McClellan website hosted by Tebo hit the Internet and pretty soon mass-media exposure from "Larry King Live," Fox News, and CNN led to McClellan's arrest outside a Los Angeles child day care center. That's when Tebo decided to confront his own attacker and began his quest in earnest. He went back to his old neighborhood and found Butch's house, which was vacant and in foreclosure. But the property had an important clue: Butch's family name was still on the mailbox.

Tebo went through property records to obtain a first name. First he found the name of Butch's father, then he trolled the Internet until he found the man's obituary, which had Butch's real name listed as next of kin. After that, Tebo just knocked on doors until he got leads as to where the man might be living, which wasn't very far away.

The final puzzle piece was just a coincidence when Tebo obtained a client in the area where Butch lived.

"I just happened to ask her if she knew this man, and she said he worked for her and she would take me to where he was," Tebo said.

Let me just remind everyone. I am here to protect our kids and that’s all i am here for! I have no other interest, agenda, motive or anything I want to gain. I don’t get money for this, I am not suing anyone, and I don’t enjoy this at all.

I will not get frustrated by these same 3 “IP addresses” that comment here, and I will not give up the fight. I am comfortable with my position, I am at ease with my decision and I fully believe that this is what G-d wants me to do. So keep commenting, harassing or cursing me, my wife, my kids and my grandchildren. I spit it straight back at you, and it does not phase me in the least.

Have a happy sukkos everyone and enjoy the Yom Tov.

Community Service

Ladies and gentleman,

Due to the financial strain and the bad economy these days and due to the discovery of dead people that were abusers, I have decided to team up with a big non-for-profit organization  to offer “A tombstone exchange program” for any one needed, or for people who cant afford it.

For example. This beautiful stone is usually 2495.00 but we offer it for free as a service for the truth. Otherwise they will write all different kind of lies and dishonesty praise on him, so we offer to write the truth and we will pay for it.

Here we offer our exchange program. This guy got already a tombstone and was erected on its place, but it is very costly to change it. So here we come again and offer a free service for the truth,  so his real memoirs are remembered for ever.

We also have a program for the less fortunate that were killed in the line of fire. We will help you as well and make sure you are remembered the right way forever!

We also have many different items that might be interested for you! Here are some examples. Feel free to request a free catalog from us!

We will customize it for your mikvah, school or any other venue you want.

Finally we have also put one aside for our Hero Rabbi Nuchem, and we will remember him as well for all the good he did in this world!

Chain reaction.

The following is a letter I received from a reader, and called him up and spoke with him to get details and verify it. It turns out that I remember him from cheder and  we caught up on the “good ole times”  but I am glad that we were able to reminisce on our younger years.

Dear Blog admin,

I want to congratulate you on your fine work and on your courage to open your secrets and life and your pain to the public.

I am a former Talmud of R’ braver and B’H I was never molested by him, but I was “big time” touched and fondled” by a different teacher in the same school, and never ever told anyone (except for friends in shul) abut it, I was embarrassed, ashamed and scared.  And honestly, now that I see the backlash you are getting just for mentioning your story (which I fully believe you) it confirms my thinking that I always thought, that no one will believe me.

The teacher that touched me inappropriately is also not alive anymore, his name was R’ Abba Hirsh, he pulled down my pants on a daily basis, touched my genitals and pushed my hands towards his genitals. I can honestly say that I don’t believe it effected me much through out my life, but every so often it gets me mad  and a little down, but overall my life has been smooth sailing for the most part.

I can also tell you that while discussing it with guys “non challantly” there seems to bbe that I was NOT the only one! It’s almost like “oh he was an old chazir – we all knew it”.

Well, just like you, I am not telling this story because I want to call him t court or I want to win some money here, I am just telling it as a warning and a reminder to everyone involved with kids. Don’t even touch little kids, because it will come back to hurt you 20 years later. Kids remember thins vividly and you never know when they will decide to talk.

Feel free to publish my name; I am not embarrassed in the least. And you can always reach me at 718.38-.----

S…… ………..

Editors Note:

I advised him after talking to him, to not publish his name. Also, I feel better now that I have publicized my molesters name Mr. braver, because people see that you can get revenge and justice after all even 30 years later. I have gotten also many more emails accusing other teachers and principals, but I need to verify them first.

10 years behind!

I have gotten so much hate mail after the last two articles I posted, that it gave me a whole new bundle of energy to write even more and expand on my agenda to end child molestation and sexual abuse in our community.

As a Chassidic person myself and a member of the Williamsburg community I have witnessed first handedly the “10 YEAR BEHIND” syndrome and I think its time to let go of it.

30 years ago, when a family had a child “Lo uleinu” that was not healthy or was mentally challenged, he or she were basically put away in a closet and was hidden from the public, so the rest of the family can live a “normal” life, and the neighbors should not know about it.

It took years and years of convincing the community that it’s no ones fault that you have a sick child, and it is not a bad reflection on the rest of the family, and its time to go for help.

Little by little, the community started to see that it is not acceptable and they must change what they are doing, and follow the right way of doing things, they went for help, and one family supported the next one, and before you knew, there were many organizations (i.e. Chush, Yeled v’yalda, Refuah, etc.) in the community, and it was standard procedure for families to use these organizations as needed.

If you stop and think for a second. “Why would you hide a child and not help him“? It is almost impossible to imagine that a normal human being would withhold any possible help and assistance from their own child. That’s how odd it seems now! but back then, the majority of our community did not think this way. It took us 10 years to catch up with the rest of the world and recognize the importance of it.

Imagine how many more kids would’ve enjoyed a healthy lifestyle if their parents would have just given them that little extra help they so badly needed. Imagine how many grown men and women are deprived of a normal life, due to the lack of therapy they didn’t get as a little infants.

In today’s age if a parent has a baby that was born 3 lbs instead of 6 lbs or any other type of complication, the city automatically offers you physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and any kind of help and assistance to make sure this child has a real chance in life. If a woman would refuse this help you would say that she is crazy and furthermore the city would investigate why she is not allowing this help, that’s how vital this help is and that’s how normal these procedures are.

Ladies and gentleman, I believe when we are talking about molestation and child abuse, we are in the middle of the “10 year behind” syndrome!

Lets fast forward 10 years from now, Let’s make believe we are in the year of 2021when its “normal” to have a video camera in every classroom, when its normal to report a sexual predator in our community, when its normal to protect our children, when its normal to get rid of teachers that are molesters, when its normal to do a background check on every single employee at your kids school, when its normal to educate our little kids about the bad people that try to lure them in and how they should protect themselves, when its normal that a kid comes forward and your first instinct is not to say “you are a liar”, when its normal to have 50 rabbi Rosenbergs in Williamsburg preaching awareness, You will look back at today’s age and say WHAT WERE THEY THINKING? WHY WERE THEY SITTING IDLE? DID THEY NOT CARE?

Never mind the fact that satmar will somehow take credit for it and claim that they worked all along for it. Never mind that the rabbis will eat their own dust and somehow find a way to blame Yitzchok stern for the whole isolation letter. Nevertheless it will be normal procedure every single thing that Rabbi nuchem us telling you now!

The million dollar question though, is WHY WAIT? WHY NOT NOW? Look at the statistics! Every day that passes, your kid has a greater chance of being abused and molested. When will you wake up? It is embarrassing that I even need to push you to do this! Your instinct as a parent should push you to get involved! Your instinct as your child’s protector should kick-in and you should do everything possible even if its only 1% possibility - let alone when the numbers are at 20% (1 out of 5 boys).

Lets cut down to the chase! You must be real gullible to think that there is no molesting happening in our community. On the other hand though, you don’t hear anything from the leaders and Rabbis. So what gives? It’s being whitewashed! It’s being pushed under the rug. Your kids will grow up and they will hate you for not supporting them – if you are lucky-, If you are not that lucky, you might not recognize them! I am not asking you for an unachievable project, I am not asking you for an impossible assignment, I am not asking you for a large amount of money. I am asking you to double check on the well being of your children! Is that too much to ask? Can you ever be too protective of your little neshumele? If he would get a little cut on his forehead you would travel hundreds of miles to find a doctor that does great stitches, so his face looks beautiful. Doe he not deserve 10 minutes of your time that you should check out his surroundings? Forget me, Forget Rabbi Nuchem, Forget the politics! Just do it for your kid!

Painful memories ALL OVER AGAIN!

In a previous post (who am I - part 3) I gathered all my energy and my pain and gathered all the courage I have and revealed the name of the man who abused me when I was a 8 year old child. I was thinking long and hard if I should do it or not, since he is not alive anymore, but after consulting my therapist he felt that I should go ahead and do it, open up and get it off my chest.

I was relieved after I did it  and I felt like a took another step towards healing and I was very proud of myself, and it made me feel like: Mr. Braver, I won after all! You abused me then, but I am over you and I have the courage to move on, and not be the victim!

That feeling though lasted a mere five minutes. Because five minutes after I posted it, I got the following comment!

Anonymous said...
To NuchemISright said...

Manny Manny of his Talmidim complaint of him being very strict!!!! NOBODY and Again NOBODY claimed any of this action on "R’ Chaim Aryeh Braver”
NuchemISright did he do it in public ? can you prove it with any other talmid? I think you are lying.

After I read that comment, I felt a weakness take over my body and had a flashback to my youth, it gave me that sinking feeling that I had when I gathered all my courage at the young age of 9-10 years and tried to report it to the principal, and I got  smacked for talking “Nonsense”!

I came home last night and showed it to my wife, and I was sick to my stomach! I could not eat supper; I could not build the sukkah! I did not WANT to build the sukkah! And all I want to say to that commenter is you took away with one comment, 20 years of work I did! 20 years of “moving forward” was gone in one second! Somehow I felt like it was my fault all over again! I felt like its me that did something wrong here, its me that is responsible for this, its me that is the bad person here.

But I got something I want to tell you. I know what happened, and I know what he did to me. And not even YOU will take that away from me!  I worked too hard to get here; I came over too many hurdles in my life that you should be able to ruin it all!  You got me down for 12 hours, but I am standing back up again and I will move forward and fight animals like you and your like.

How dare you tell me I am lying? Where do you come across to make that statement and tell me that it didn’t happen? I remember vividly how he rubbed his private parts on my flesh, how he made me touch him UNTIL COMPLETION!  How he smacked me after wards claiming that he does it for my good, to make me a “good Jew”!  How dare you make a comment like that?   You are just as bad as he is!
I want everyone to pay close attention to this comment. This is what your kids are up against!  They come and tell someone that they were inappropriately touched or molested, and the first thing they hear is YOU ARE LYING! Now think for a second and put yourself into a 10 year-olds shoes. How do you think he feels! How does he have a chance to every ever stand up when he is molested or abused! A 10-year old gathers all the courage he can possibly have, he is scared out of his mind, he probably tried to cry out 20 times and chickened out and finally he takes everything he has and does what’s necessary and what does he hear? YOU ARE LYING!

This boy is ruined for life! This boy will never be able to stand up for anything! This boy will never ever trust a human being in his life! And this boy will most-likely end up on drugs and these lowlifes will label him a “Sheigatz” and they don’t realize that they are the one to blame! They are the one that didn’t listen to him and put him through hell in the first place.

You just saw a perfect example of this vicious cycle! You just saw a perfect sequence on how our community works! You just saw the ruining of a human in front of your eyes.

How much longer do we have to be in this corrupt cycle? How much longer before each and every one of you wakes up and sees the hypocrisy in our system? How much longer before you give these little children a voice and a helping hand to have a chance in this world?  How much longer are you willing to cover up for the Rabbis that do NOTHING in our community but cover up all the filth? How much longer before you say “Thank you” Rabbi nuchem for speaking up for us! How many more children need to be molested and ruined for life before all of you will wake up and see whats happening here?  Why is it that I even need to ask you that? You should be jumping out of your skin and do everything possible to protect your children! What is wrong with you guys? What will it take?

A fathers revenge.

Before you watch this video let me give you a little background about this story.
This guy named Gary has a 11 year old son that was kidnapped and molested by a 30 year old scumbag. The police caught him and his son was returned to him. But Gary was not waiting for justice from the courts and decided to take action on his own.

You see, unlike some people, Gary did not try to Whitewash it but instead he was taking revenge for his son. He was willing to go in prison for life, to defend his little boy.

Gary disguised his looks and was waiting by a telephone booth , so no one sees him and when the Police passed by with the molester, he took out his gun and shot the piece of filth.

You can hear the police asking him WHY? WHY? WHY GARY? Why did you do this? They all understood the agony and pain of this father, and treated him with golden gloves.  And he answers. “If it would be your kid, you would’ve done the same”

The story has even a better ending. Every one involved realized what this father went trough and appreciates that he was revenging his sons pain. Do you know what his punishment was for killing him? “FIVE YEARS PROBATION! Not one day in Jail! This is what I call justice.

Feel free to check the comments on this You tube video. Every single parent says thank you to him and supports him.

After you watch this video please send me your comment what you would’ve done! And after you did this think about the Rabbis who still think Rabbi Nuchem should be in cheirem!

Mr. Charles Hynes!  Rabbi Nuchem has been telling you that for a while now, its only a matter of time before this will happen! Its only a matter of time on how long you can oppress a fathers emotion!  It’s only a matter of time that this will happen in OUR community! There is no telling what a painful father is capable of doing!

I don’t condone violence and I don’t condone what Gary did, but I DO understand and appreciate where he is coming from!  The pain he had was unbearable, and he had to show his kid. I am your father and I will protect you!

Now guys, what are YOU willing to show your kids when they are molested? So far, all of you, don’t have 1% of Gary’s guts! But its only a matter of time! I honestly believe it!

Who am i? פרק ג

The Talmud teaches us the qualifications of being a public figure, and I quote:
רבן גמליאל בנו של רבי יהודה הנשיא אומר, וכל העמלים עם
 הציבור, יהיו עמלים עימם לשם שמיים
(Rabbi Gamaliel the son of Rabbi Judah said: Let all who occupy themselves with communal affairs do so for Heaven's sake)

If you want to be a Rabbi in the community, if you intend to be a community liaison, a community leader, a community spokesman, it MUST BE לשם שמיים otherwise it’s worthless! When you make a decision it must be the right one, not the popular one. When you take a stand on something, it must be the right one, not the popular one.

As we mentioned in the previous post, the world was created with “choice and options”, every human being has a chance to do right or to do evil. G-d created the world that way and G-d allows evil things to happen to good people and even to innocent little children. But as we said G-d also wants punishment! G-d wants civility and manners. G-d created this world to be managed by humans and run by governments.

Respect For a Rabbi!
עון גדול הוא לבזות תלמידי חכמים או לשנאותן. לא חרבה ירושלים, עד שבזו בה תלמידי חכמים, שנאמר, ויהיו מלעיבים במלאכי האלהים ובוזים דבריו ומתעתעים בנביאיו, כלומר, בוזים מלמדי דבריו. וכן זה שאמרה תורה, ואם בחקתי תמאסו, מלמדי חקותי תמאסו. וכל המבזה את החכמים, אין לו חלק לעולם הבא, והוא בכלל כי דבר ה' בזה
תלמיד-חכם המזלזל במצות ואין בו יראת-שמים, הרי הוא כקל שבצבור

It is very clear that respect for a Rabbi and a scholar is very important as long as it fits the criteria mentioned “He is a holy and follows the torah “ otherwise he has the law of כקל  שבצבור
Now let me try to tie all of the above in very simple English, and give you the law and halacha on how to deal with Rabbis who are not legit and are not truly serving the public the way they must do it - לשם שמיים

As we mentioned in an earlier post. A rabbi who was nominated strictly on the qualifications that he is “next in line”, that is a very poor excuse to be a Rabbi. Unfortunately in today’s world, this is the only method they use, to pick a rabbi. So in a certain way, what can we expect? What kind of leadership will we get when hundreds of unqualified Rabbis are at the helm ?

It did not take too much time for history to prove us right! These Rabbis put their signatures on letters and announcements with out having the slightest clue on what they are signing for. Make decisions for communities with out understanding the ABC of that particular issue. Taking the responsibilities on core issues of the Jewish existence (i.e.  Kosher, Ritual baths, Sabbath, etc.) when they are totally not qualified to even suggest their opinion on it. And what ends up happening , when they are caught, they do the following two things.
1.  They go on the offense
2. The guy who exposed them is a low life and you are not allowed to associate with him.

Rabbi Stein (A well known Talmud Chuchum in the Brooklyn Community) exposed recently a major problem regarding a kashrus issue.  Without going into details once again, let me just assure you I was fully involved on that issue, and there’s no doubt in my mind that Rabbi Stein was one million percent right, and the Government facilities in Penn State University verified it to me. But nevertheless, He was shushed out by ALL Rabbis involved with that community, and was warned to be quiet, and they didn’t have the guts to tell the public that it was a big mess up and according to Rabbi Roth, you must “Kasher” your dishes and treat it like any other law , when you have non-kosher food  on your kosher dishes.

Let me also clarify that this was not just ONE rabbi who shushed it all. This was EVERY SINGLE Rabbi and Dayan involved in that community. The orders came down from the top and it was upheld all the way through.

Now, you see how these rabbis handle an important issue like that and are willing to whitewash it and to put thousands of Jews at risk, just so to cover their asses! What can we expect when it comes to an even more embarrassing subject like Child molesters and pedophilia in their own schools? There is no shot in the world that these unqualified so called rabbis will ever admit any guilt! Can someone show me one letter from all these rabbis where they discuss these pedophilia problems? Can someone tell me how they tackle this issue? Can someone give me any examples what they did to Jerry Brauner, a man that has molested Jewish children for close to 40 years openly?  What did they do to the  Rabbi who molested me in yeshiva. The rabbi that molested me is no longer alive, his name was "R’ Chaim Aryeh Braver” he molested me for a very long period of time, and I once had the guts to go to a “principal” in the yeshiva, and he gave me such a smack in my face for even having the audacity to say such a thing, that every time I think of that smack, I feel a dizziness and weakness in my body that I cant relate to you! And I am totally not kidding; I honestly feel that echo of that smack 40 years later and it gives me the chills up and down my body!

Let me tell you what they did have the guts to do! They took the only man with guts to expose this problem and educate us and putting his life on the line, a man with courage, a man with bravery, a man named Rabbi Nuchem Rosenberg, and without any justified reasons they isolated him, and problems solved!  Why? Because when ever you ask them, “hey, Nuchem said this”  “hey, nuchem said that”   they have an easy way out.   Well, sorry he is in Cheirem , he is in isolation, we are not allowed to talk to him, about him, With him. And that’s all, problem solved.

 So here is the deal. If you want to continue following the rabbis blindly, with no questions asked. If the well being of your children means nothing to you. If the “image” of your name or your family is more important to you, then the well being of your kids. Then, just continue doing what you did until now “Nothing”! Just live through life the way you did till now. Let your kids go through hell and pain. Who cares, as long as your neighbor thinks that you are the perfect family. Does it really matter that your son is crying on his pillow at the age of 35, due to the abuse and hell he endured? No of course not! The neighbor does not see that and that’s the only important thing. I will be able to do a shidduch with this great family in the community, I don’t care that my son will be miserable due to the fact that he never got his help and therapy he so badly needed. Sorry I can’t worry about that, because that will mess up my name in the community

However, if you are a parent that the mere fact of the thought and possibility of what your kid is exposed to, gives you a rage and a chill up your spine, then its time to take action!

It is time to demand from your school some action! It is time to demand that your school has a video in every class room! It is time to demand that every teacher that has a complaint lodge against him is being thoroughly investigated!  It is time you educate your kids, that they report every minor abuse happening to them; let it be a teacher, a grandfather, a cousin, an uncle or a stranger! (Keep in mind, over 80% of molestation cases are done, by family members or friends) Ask your Rabbi what is HE doing to battle this problem? Ask your rabbi why is Rabbi Rosenberg being isolated when all he is doing is educate us? Ask your rabbi, how come Yechiel “Jerry” Braunner is free to walk the streets, and Rabbi Rosnberg is in isolation?  What a joke that one is! What a travesty and miscarriage of justice that one is!  How can someone have faith in any of these Rabbis who signed this “Worthless” isolation letter against rabbi Nuchem?

I spoke to some rabbis from varios communities all over the USA. That isolation letter “in their mind” is not even worth to be used for toilet paper. They laugh at it, they don’t even pay attention to it, and they all gave their opinion that it has no value or significance whatsoever!

The bottom line is a very simple one. Until the rabbis show us some inclination to get involved with this major problem and start doing something about it, they have no value as a rabbi, no value as תלמידי חכמים, they have no value at all! And it is up to us, to grab the bull by its horn and do something about it. Because we know for sure that they WILL NOT do anything, and it is our kids they we try to protect here.
In conclusion

G-d gave us “choice” on how to do things. That goes for both ways - choice in doing bad and choice in doing good!  As you see the people who use their choice to do badly, are doing a phenomenal job. They have the Rabbis who protect them, they have the majority of the community that protect them and they have an open field to molest and abuse with hardly any thing done about it

Now what it is asked from you is to choose Good over Bad!  Take that g-d given right of “Choice” and choose to make a difference! Choose to make this world a better place! Choose to make this world a safer place for your kids! And choose GOOD over BAD and you will benefit, your kids will benefit and everyone around you will benefit!

Who am i? פרק ב


It is now 2 hours after Yom Kippur, and I took upon myself this Yom Kippur to fight pedophillia and its supporters with all my power and capabilities, and it is with that in mind that I decided to post something tonight, so I get started with my mission.

Let me tell you guys out there. I will prevail and I will succeed. I will fight until every NAMBLA member and every molester is defeated. Rabbi nuchem has already made an unbelievable impact on this topic and his support is high, but before you know it, it will be “politically correct” to support him in the open.

In this פרק ב Part 2, I will take an overall look on why bad things happen in this world. And why G-d allows those things to happen to poor little innocent kids.  And in the final part 3, I will tie it all together on why we must report child abuse – molestation and pedophilia and why these rabbis are so wrong in protecting these evil scums.

I want to concentrate on these Rabbis who throw everything on G-d and don’t have the guts to take a stand on good vs. wrong. They don’t have the guts to speak out when it’s necessary to do so and therefore keep saying “G-d will punish him already” what an absolute copout that line is. If you don’t have the guts to make a call and to take a stand on issues that are “borderline” or not so “popular” in the community, then GET THE HELL OUT! Don’t call yourself a Rabbi and don’t preach other stuff where you only gain! Don’t give a speech on Yom Kippur asking your congregates to repent, when you don’t have the guts to speak about the real issues.

Why are innocent little kids being abused? Where is G-d?
Let me clarify. When I say "Why do bad things happen to good people," this can mean one of two things. If you listen to the question carefully, it's assuming G-d's existence. People say: I know there's a G-d, but I want to understand: Is this G-d good? And if he is good, then why do bad things happen to good people?
Alternatively, the question "Why do bad things happen to good people," “Why are innocent little kids being abused” may really be asking "I'm not sure that G-d exists." That's a completely different question. The question of G-d's existence has nothing to do with the issue of suffering. It has to do with creation, revelation at Sinai, world history, etc. So we should be clear that the question we are dealing with here is not "Does G-d exist?" It's "Why do bad things happen to good people?"

In order for us to be able to "judge G-d", we have to be able to look at what are G-d's "ground rules" for existence. Using this premise, it becomes very difficult to judge G-d. Why? Because we are stuck in a finite perspective of time and space, and we can therefore never be sure which rules G-d is employing at any given moment.
In discussing this issue, I am not going to give an answer as to why particular things happen in a particular situation. Only a prophet can do that and it's been a long time since G-d spoke to me! What we can do is look at general approaches that Judaism offers, to at least get a general sense of what the possibilities are for why things happen.

Here's an analogy: A physicist can tell you why a leaf will fall in a particular place – it has to do with the aerodynamics of the leaf, the force of gravity, and the direction and velocity of the wind. But if you ask that physicist where a certain leaf is going to fall, he is not going to be able to tell you, because he can't precisely quantify the different forces that make a leaf fall in a particular place. He can give you the general principles, but he can't give you a precise analysis of a specific situation.

It's the same idea here. We won't be able to say why specific things are happening in a specific situation, but we will be able to speak about general principles that can lead us to understand the workings of a good G-d.
Choice and consequences is One crucial idea to get us started:

It is written in the Torah" "כי בצלם אלוהים, עשה את האדם - meaning: The human was created in the image of G-d. Obviously the "image of God" is dealing with the non-physical part of us - the soul. Where do we get our drive for morality and meaning, our drive to make a difference? That drive is from the soul which is in the "image of God."But there's more to it than that. Just as God has independent choice, so too does each human being have independent moral choice. The image of God means that we have the ability to choose.

Why is choice the essential issue of what makes us special? Because, if you think about it, life only becomes meaningful because of our ability to choose. For example, the difference in being "programmed to love" and the choice to love, is precisely what makes love significant. Similarly, if I don't have the choice to do good, but am programmed to do good, then there's nothing meaningful about it. Whereas, if I have the ability to do good or evil, then good becomes significant.

But it goes deeper still. For choice to be authentic, there have to be consequences. If every time I get in trouble, dad comes to bail me out, that's not really choice. Choice means consequences. Think about it. All of history – whether in our personal lives or from a global perspective - is based on the decisions that human beings have made - and the consequences that flow from that.

So now we can understand that "image of God" means that God created beings that have the ability to make decisions, and those decisions will create consequences that will make this being a co-partner in the development of the world. This has many ramifications as far as "why bad things happen to good people" and certainly you can start seeing it already.

Now I think we're ready to examine eight ground rules which Judaism spells out for how God interacts with the world.

For free choice to operate, it's obvious that evil has to have the possibility of existing. If every time someone chooses to do evil, God is going to interfere, then there's no moral choice. If every time the gun is pointed, the turret points backwards, after a few times you get the message. If you eat pork and get struck by lightning, then you're not "morally choosing," you just see it doesn't work. It simply becomes pragmatic not to do evil.
If the lives of the righteous were obviously perfect, that too would destroy the possibility of choice. Pragmatically, we'd figure it pays more to be righteous because look at the millions of bucks that come my way! That's not choice. That's not becoming God-like.
A world where a human being can create himself into a Moses, also carries the possibility of a person creating himself into a Hitler.
Sometimes God does make a miracle, but it is always in a way that is not obvious, that enables us to retain free choice.

After the Exodus from Egypt when the Red Sea split, it was obvious to everyone that God had performed a miracle. Yet the Torah tells us "that a strong east wind blew all night".  Why was there a strong wind blowing? Because God had to leave open at least the possibility for someone to say, "No, there was no miracle. It was a fluke of nature and the wind split the sea."

In the recent Gulf War, 39 Scud Missiles rained down on Israel and only one person was killed. What would it take for that to happen? Guaranteed you would have told me it would take a miracle, but it happened and we still have doubt.

In Genesis 15:13, God tells Abraham, "Know that your descendents are going to be enslaved in a land they don't know," which of course ends up being Egypt. So the Jewish philosophers ask: "If God wanted the Jewish people to be enslaved in Egypt, why did he punish the Egyptians?" Tough question!
Nachmanides explains: "All God said is that they would be enslaved. He said nothing about torture and murder. God only said that he wanted a certain something to happen, but the Egyptians took it beyond that." Now the question is, "Do the Jewish people deserve intervention or not?" Different story.
In Deuteronomy, Moses says that the fate of people depends on our relationship to God. The more we move closer to Him, the more He moves closer to us. The more we move away from him, the more He does the same. The language used is "God hides His face." And when that happens, this leaves us open to the free will decisions of human beings. At times God does not intervene.
We have to appreciate that in the Holocaust, it was not God who built the crematoriums, it was the Nazis. It is not God who is massacring Moslems in Bosnia, it is the Serbs. Which of course raises the question: Why isn't God interfering? But do you see the difference between "God doing this" and "why is God not interfering?"
King David said, "God, I'd rather have direct punishment from you than to fall into the hands of a human being." Because that's dangerous stuff. Will you merit to have God intervene?

The question of "why do bad things happen to good people" has a lot to do with how we look at existence. The way we usually perceive things is like this: A "good life" means that I make a comfortable living, I enjoy good health, and then I die peacefully at age 80. That's a good life. Anything else is "bad."
In a limited sense, that's true. But if we have a soul and there is such a thing as eternity, then that changes the picture entirely. Eighty years in the face of eternity is not such a big deal.

From Judaism's perspective, our eternal soul is as real as our thumb. This is the world of doing, and the "world to come" is where we experience the eternal reality of whatever we've become. Do you think after being responsible for the torture and deaths of millions of people, that Hitler could really "end it all" by just swallowing some poison? No. Ultimate justice is found in another dimension.

But the concept goes much deeper. From an eternal view, if the ultimate pleasure we're going after is transcendence - the eternal relationship with the Almighty Himself, then who would be luckier: Someone who lives an easy life with little connection to God, or someone who is born handicapped, and despite the challenges, develops a connection with God. Who would be "luckier" in terms of eternal existence? All I'm trying to point out is that the rules of life start to look different from the point of view of eternity, as opposed to just the 70 or 80 years we have on earth.

I heard a cute story I'd like to share. There once was a farmer who owned a horse. And one day the horse ran away. All the people in the town came to console him because of the loss. "Oh, I don't know," said the farmer, "maybe it's a bad thing and maybe it's not."
A few days later, the horse returned to the farm accompanied by 20 other horses. (Apparently he had found some wild horses and made friends!) All the townspeople came to congratulate him: "Now you have a stable full of horses!" "Oh, I don't know," said the farmer, "maybe it's a good thing and maybe it's not."
A few days later, the farmer's son was out riding one of the new horses. The horse got wild and threw him off, breaking the son's leg. So all the people in town came to console the farmer because of the accident. "Oh, I don't know," said the farmer, "maybe it's a bad thing and maybe it's not."
A few days later, the government declared war and instituted a draft of all able-bodied young men. They came to the town and carted off hundreds of young men, except for the farmer's son who had a broken leg. "Now I know," said the farmer, "that it was a good thing my horse ran away."

The point of this story is obvious. Life is a series of events, and until we've reached the end of the series, it's hard to know exactly why things are happening. That's one reason the Torah commands us to give respect to every elderly person – because through the course of life experience, they have seen the jigsaw puzzle pieces fall into place.

The Torah itself makes this point very clearly. Jacob is raising the next generation of the Jewish people, bringing to the world the message of Ethical Monotheism. And the key character in that picture is his son Joseph, who is kidnapped by his own brothers and sent down to Egypt. Imagine you would come to Jacob at that point in time and ask him about a good God. What's he going to answer?
In Egypt, Joseph became Prime Minister, and when a grave famine hits the entire world, Joseph is a unique position to rescue his family.

When we look at the whole story in retrospect, everything that happened to Joseph was for the good. It set into motion a chain of events where he ended up saving and building the Jewish people.
It is interesting that one of the weekly Torah portions, "Miketz," ends on a bad note, and is then resolved at the beginning of the following week. Why didn't the Torah simply extend "Miketz" a few verses and have it end good? Because the Troah wants to communicate the lesson that we don't always see the whole picture. Sometimes you have to wait to see how "things turn out good in end."

Sometimes what we perceive as punishment is really an opportunity for growth. In the story of the "Binding of Isaac," the Torah says that "God tested Abraham." The question is: Doesn't God know what Abraham is capable of? So who's the test for? It can't be for God. It must be for Abraham.

What does it mean to be tested? You have potential. Was this test a "punishment" for Abraham? Of course not. It was an opportunity for growth. The Abraham before the test is not the same Abraham after the test.
Imagine a track coach training an athlete in the 110-meter high hurdles. The coach would start with the hurdles low, and then raise them steadily as the athlete progressed. Raising the hurdles is not a punishment; rather it shows the coach's increasing confidence in the athlete's ability.

I hear this following line over and over again: "When this event happened in my life, it seemed so negative; now I understand why it was there and how I grew from it".

Not too long ago, a very dynamic woman I know, almost died. Her heart stopped on the table. She tells me it was the best thing that ever happened to her. "I was in overdrive, running and doing. That event got me to think: What's it all about?" And what this woman has accomplished in the last few years in personal growth is unbelievable. She's convinced that her suffering was integral to the growth process.

In Judaism, we look at life as "I'm here for growth, so how does this situation help me to change and grow?" When God is telling you to sacrifice your only son, can there be any greater punishment? Yet it changed the whole future of the Jewish people. "Tests" can change your future, too.

The Talmud (Yoma 35) tells the famous story of the sage Hillel. At the time, the head of the yeshiva wanted to make sure that the people who came to study Torah wanted it for the right reasons, and not for self-aggrandizement. So in order to test people's motivation, he charged money to enter the yeshiva.
Hillel was as poor and impoverished as they come. In the winter, he wanted so much to study that he climbed up to the roof by the skylight, and then became so enraptured with his studies that he didn't realize he'd become frozen in. The next morning it was dark in the study hall. So they looked up and saw a person's body. They brought him down and thawed him out.
The Talmud states: "Hillel obligates the poor." That means that Hillel takes away the excuse that we didn't accomplish what we were supposed to in life due to lack of money. Hillel serves as a beacon that even in poverty, one can still become the greatest of the great (which Hillel was).
Was Hillel punished or was this his reason for being here? The Talmud tells us this was his reason for being here. You don't know why a particular situation might be happening. We each have our own package. Each one of us is put here for a particular purpose. Sometimes "suffering" may actually be the reason we were put here. Maybe this is, so to speak, our glory, our unique contribution.

We are living in a very complex world and in a complex world, God doesn't only deal with individuals, he also deals with nations.
When God decided to destroy Sodom and Gomorra, Abraham complained. He asked God, "If I can find 50 righteous people in Sodom and Gomorra, will you spare the cities?" God said, "No problem, I won't destroy it." Abraham bargained with God until he got down to 10 righteous people and God said, "Okay, if you can find 10 righteous people I won't destroy it."
Why did Abraham stop at 10? Why didn't he go down to one?
Because Abraham knew if there's a group of people who are righteous, then society might turn around – you can't destroy them. Ten is still a group, under 10 is just individuals. A few righteous individuals is not enough to save Sodom and Gomorra.
Another question: Now that God decided to destroy it, do these righteous individuals merit to be spared themselves? The answer is that while these individuals were not the catalyst for the disaster, but now that the disaster is going to happen, you need a tremendous amount of merit to be saved from it in a miraculous way. God deals both on a national realm and on an individual realm. And that complicates our understanding of the equation.

Unfortunately, the way a lot of Jews relate to punishment has been very heavily influenced by Christianity, which is that God is always ready to get me with "fire and brimstone." No offense, but the Jewish idea is much different. God is our merciful Father. He's an infinite being that has no needs. Punishment cannot mean that He's "getting something." And this is the key to understanding the concept of chastisement.
When you think about it, all relationships are based on reward and punishment. When I bring my wife flowers, she smiles. If it's her birthday and I don't bring her flowers, I get punished, either by a burnt dinner, cold shoulder, etc. Relationships that are based on love always play themselves out in terms of reward and punishment. When I do what's right, I receive positive reinforcement, when I do what's wrong I receive "punishment."

What happens if my wife would always react the same regardless of whether or not I bring her flowers? That's the worst possible thing in a relationship - indifference.
Judaism says that punishment exists because God is reacting to the fact that I've done something wrong and He wants me to change. Hopefully I'll hear the message and learn from that. God is not out for revenge. He's doing this for my own good. If He wouldn't react to my negative behavior that would be the worst punishment of all - because that would mean indifference.
This is why King David says   גַּם כִּי-אֵלֵךְ בְּגֵיא צַלְמָוֶת, לֹא-אִירָא רָע--    כִּי-אַתָּה עִמָּדִי;
שִׁבְטְךָ וּמִשְׁעַנְתֶּךָ,    הֵמָּה יְנַחֲמֻנִי"
Your rod and your staff comfort me." Even though I may get "hit" once in a while, I know it is ultimately for my own good.

In the next (Final) part, I will bring it all together and explain to you how wrong the Rabbis are and how they better get their act together quickly, or they risk of putting the whole “religious way of living in America is in Jeopardy.
