UOJ reports that a case has been filed in the Supreme Court of New York, King County, against Yeshiva Torah Temimah for abuse perpetrated by Rabbi Yehuda Kolko in 2003.
Again, let us be clear. Rabbi Yaakov Perlow, head of Agudath Israel’s rabbinic leadership and dozens of other "gedolim" knew about Kolko’s abuse. Many knew 20 years ago, some 30, some even further back. And none of them did anything to stop him. This is rabbinic malpractice and it should be criminal. Please God find a way to make it so, and to rid our communities of these rabbinic fools.
A good chronology of Kolko’s abuse – and of our dear rabbis’ coverups – can be read here.
Oh, and a special note to Rabbi Matisyahu Salomon. You are protecting those who shielded abusers. You are protecting those who destroyed children. Do the right, good and decent thing – publicly apologize to the victims and then retire from teaching, administration and public life.
