A Single-Case Study of Rabbinic Sexual Abuse in the Orthodox Jewish Community
Neustein, Amy; Lesher, Michael
Journal of Child Sexual Abuse, v17 n3-4 p270-289 Oct 2008
This paper considers a case of sexual abuse allegedly perpetrated by a rabbi within an Orthodox Jewish community. The material is drawn from public records and interviews conducted with the family of the reported victim and others involved in the matter. Consideration is given to judicial procedures unique to the traditional Jewish community and how such procedures, while developed to foster justice within the Jewish community, at times may interfere with secular criminal procedures. (Contains 2 notes.)
