“A Brooklyn man who was helping two teenagers with their religious studies has been accused of molesting the boys.”
Things are not looking good right now. It seems that these stories
are becoming more frequent and no one is doing anything. Most of our religious leaders either look the other way or try to convince us this doesn’t happen. It does and lives are being ruined.
Yona Weinberg, 29, was arrested at around 9 p.m. Sunday night on charges of sex abuse and endangering the welfare of a child.
Weinberg is a paid employee at a synagogue and was working at a place that offered religious studies, police said.
The victims, 13- and 14-year-old brothers, said Weinberg touched [them in a private area] on more than one occasion during their study sessions, police said.
Police released limited information due to the nature of the charges. They said Weinberg was arrested in front of his home.
We need to wake up and we need to realize that these types of problems don’t go away. Instead of learning from the Catholic Priest Molestation Scandals, we seem to be repeating their mistakes. Our Gedolim need to face facts and realize it’s these types of things that will destroy us. We will lose more Yiddishe Neshomas and more lives will be ruined, both physically, and especially spiritually!
