Accused Child Murderer



A halakhic ruling issued before the weekend by rabbinical sages of the ultra-Orthodox community in Jerusalem exonerates a yeshiva student, 19, charged with the killing of his three-months-old baby.

The ruling, issued by rabbis Yosef Shalom Elyashiv, Shmuel Auerbach and Chaim Kniyevski was delivered to Jerusalem Police Chief Maj. Gen. Ilan Franco on Friday.

The halakhic ruling threatens to renew the violent demonstrations held ten days ago in the Me’ah Shearim ultra-Orthodox neighborhood. The ruling describes the charge sheet against Vales as “blood libel.”

Yisrael Vales is suspected of beating his son and throwing him against the wall because the baby’s cries annoyed him. The son died of his wounds two weeks ago.

The baby was hospitalized at Hadassah University Hospital, Ein Karem, in serious condition, with brain hemorrhaging, edema, signs of violence and bites on his body.

Vales was initially indicted at the Jerusalem District Court on two counts of abuse and cause of serious injuries to his son. Prosecutors now seek to change the charge to manslaughter.

During his second questioning, Vales admitted he slammed the baby against a wall and had previously attacked him numerous times, because he “wouldn’t let him sleep.” He said he would beat his son with his fists, slap him and bite him on the neck.

The Jerusalem District Court is scheduled Monday to decide on the extension of Vales’ remand. Police say Vales had confessed to having committed the offenses with which he was charged.

Here is the report from the Jerusalem Post:

Jerusalem Rabbis Shalom Elyashiv and Haim Kanievski released a halachic decree Sunday morning stating that Yisrael Valis, the 19-year-old father accused of violently killing his infant son, was innocent.

One of the rabbis, speaking to Israel Radio, said that the basis for the decree was that Valis’ wife was still supporting him, and that if he had indeed killed his son, she would not be at his side still.

Valis is facing manslaughter charges for beating his three-month old baby to death.

He allegedly hurled the baby against the wall after he started to cry, is suspected of repeatedly biting, beating, pinching and punching the infant since he was born because he “did not accept him” due to a defect the child was born with in his neck muscles, police said.

The rabbi also called Sunday for the release of Valis to house arrest, threatening that if he is not released then protests by the haredi community would resume.

Extremist elements in the haredi community had previously threatened to riot and to “make Jerusalem burn” if the suspected baby killer is not released from custody, even though police said that he has admitted beating his child.

In a previous effort to ease tensions, Rabbinical sages and Valis’ family issued a statement two weeks ago calling on protesters to refrain from violence and from burning trash on the street.

Jerusalem Municipality spokesman Gidi Schmerling said last Saturday that haredi riots over the last week have caused NIS 140,000 in damage, including the destruction of 30 city garbage bins.

Haredim, wake up! Your rabbis are destroying you!

    “Extremist elements in the haredi community had previously threatened to riot and to ‘make Jerusalem burn’ if the suspected baby killer is not released from custody, even though police said that he has admitted beating his child.”

    The last people who burnt Jerusalem were the Romans during Churban Bayit Sheni. (Although the Palestineans and Jordanians did a good job of trashing the Jewish Quarter from 1948-1967).

    Is history repeating itself?

    “the basis for the decree was that Valis’ wife was still supporting him, and that if he had indeed killed his son, she would not be at his side still.”

    If this is the kind of wisdom that comes from a lifetime of Jewish learning, we’re in big, big, big trouble. I wonder if Vales’ defense attorneys can come up with something a little better. Otherwise, their boy’s gonna be in the pen for a while.

    I guess there really is no limit to the chillul Hashem that Charedim can do.
    Burning garbage in streets is bad enough, but calling the accused “innocent” without a trial or hearing the evidence…that really bugs me. And why didn’t Rabbi Slifkin get the same treatment from Elyashiv?

  5. Chozer B'She'ela

    Yeah, right–the police have nothing better to do than to stick some poor innocent charedi with charges of child murder? Does anyone think they hate haredim as much, according to Kanievski and Eliashiv, as the anti-semites who accused Jews of using Christian blood to bake their matzot? Or is this a case of transference?

    The last Beit Hamikdash was destroyed because of sinat chinam. I guess we’ve solved that problem.

  6. Stop distorting the truth. You are a lier, and a self hating Jew.

    Here is a copy of the Rabbis Letter. (That’s IF you can read it).

    Yup-all orthodox jews are innocent-and I don’t know if this moron is guilty or innocent. But you know what I don’t care-in fact I’m in favor of all haredim beating their kids to death-it sort of solves the parasite problem we have-now if we could get more herpes laden mohels to do their job curing the bris millah we’d be in good shape.

  8. YW Editor –

    Moron. Rabbis Shternbuch and Weiss are already on record – proudly – declaring both the innocence of the father and their “opinion” that he must immediately be released from jail, along with blood lible charges. Even the normally pro-haredi JPost reports this – just as it reported on the l”pesak din” from Rabbi Elyashiv.

    So go slink back into your darkness and leave normal people alone.

  9. Plus, MORON, what you have published is the PUBLIC posters put up around the city asking for monetary support – NOT the letter these ketanim send to the police and prosecuter demading Vales’ release and asserting his innocence.

    Both the Post and Haaretz have copies of this letter and interviewed some of the ketanim involved.

    In other words, you are not only wrong, but you are full of it.

    Go away.

    YW editor,
    Will you publish my comment on your version of this story on your blog? It’s pretty critical of the powers that be in charediland, but you ought to be man enough to publish it.

    Re YW’s comments

    Note how one who disagrees with haredi rabbis’ opinions (not hard to do in this case) is labelled a ‘self-hating Jew.’ Now let’s analyze this a little.

    If I am not haredi and I disagree with haredim, you can argue that my motivation is hatred of haredim (though I would disagree). But as I’m not haredi, what does my purported hatred of haredim have to do with self-hatred?

    I think I have an explanation.

    Haredim believe they have a monopoly on truth; they cannot imagine that someone could reasonably disagree with them. So according to the haredim, if any Jew isn’t a haredi, it’s not because of principled disagreement, but moral or mental weakness, the work of the Satan, etc.; deep down inside, all Jews must know that the haredim are right.

    Thus according to this theory, a haredi identity must lurk within every Jew (as they say in French, ‘dos pintele yid’), and if a hiloni resents haredim it is indeed self-hatred of this innermost part of his identity.

    This ‘understanding’ of the hiloni mind has two functions.

    First, it allows haredim to dismiss non-haredim as motivated by hatred and jealousy. With all outside views invalidated, there is no challenge to haredi groupthink.

    The second function is quite clever and very powerful sociologically. In the American South, the most rabid supporters of segregation were working-class whites, because segregation was the only thing that gave them a sense of superiority over others. Similarly, because the haredi belief in the absolute truth of their beliefs has been made the basis for the haredi belief in their superiority over others, it is far less likely to be subject to internal challenge.
