We don’t get many cases of child molestation reported from within the Jewish community. Rabbi Nechemya Weberman’s case will change all that. He was arrested for molesting a girl when she 12-years-old. The abuse allegedly went on for years.
“The charges (against Weberman) are horrendous. They are disgusting. And they’re despicable. Not just — it’s absolutely awful. But what I will tell you is that this man will die before he’s branded a child molestor,” Farkas said.
Sources in the case said Weberman is not a licensed therapist. But on Friday NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly added one thing more: “The rabbi … is NOT a rabbi! He’s a 52-year-old male arrested for molestation of a young woman who is still a minor.”
Not a Rabbi, but still a rabbi… OK then. He’s still an alleged pedophile.
