|The Rabbi speaking to the media|
As always, rabbi Nuchem made the best out of it, and tried to motivate the people to work on this bitter plague. It is also very interesting to note that thousands of people walked by the Rabbi and told him words like: You are SO right! You warned us that this is coming! Thank you for all your work! I was there with the Rabbi the whole time and actually heard it.
So my question is to all these thousands of people that helped in the search, and the close to ten thousands of men and women that attended the funeral. WHAT ARE YOU DOING TODAY TO MAKE SURE THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN AGAIN? How are you going to avoid this tragedy from repeating? This story happens on a daily basis in our community, just with a different ending, why are you feeling better today than yesterday and still not wild and outraged about the safety of our children?
I will guarantee you today that if we continue our daily routine and don’t speak up, it is only a matter of time before there is another similar story. And let me tell you, it won’t take 10 years! There is a molester on your block looking out the window right now and elaborating a strategic way how he can pick up YOUR child. Sounds scary? No problem, just sit back and wait for the kosover rabbi to tell you when your kid is missing to say tehhilim but don’t call the police.
