Should a Rabbi meet in his office with a woman?
What’s enough proof to start warning other women? Do recordings suffice?
When do we go to the police?
When do we keep abuse quiet and when do we publicize the dangers?
What’s going on in the head of an abuser? Is he not worried about getting caught?
Why would followers of a Rabbi coverup his abuses?
I’d appreciate a session with R Dovid on the matter aimed at plain folk. The talk last week was aimed at kehilos with money and infrastructure and not many machlokesim. Not many cities have those wonderful qualities. The way it commonly is these days is cities like Lakewood, Jerusalem ,NYC with many different kehilos and no central authority, and individuals that have been abused, or that their kids have been abused are at a loss over what to do.
Going to the police is very iffy – they might (big safek even there) arrest the fellow and release him in four days. There really isn’t much motivation for them to do anything. And they are inundated with these cases. And putting your kid through police interrogation isn’t happening for most people. It’s a huge price to pay for the victims.
