Married and Navigating Jewish Life

Blogging about marriage and relationships

Saw this randomly. The Forward wrote about a sex scandal in Australia. Reminds of the issues here in America

The Forward has an article about a Principal who was accused of molesting girls in the school she was in charge of. She skipped the country ahead of the public announcement of it with approx. 100k borrowed from the local community before they found out about the entire announcement. She ran off to Israel with the money and fleeing the investigation into the charges.

While it is up to the investigators to find out if this is true or not, but this reminds us of the multitude of issues in America with the Ravs not coming forward about child abuse in our communities, that the schools do not require fingerprinting to ensure criminals do not teach in our schools, and that the Agudah Israel was against mandatory fingerprinting of child care workers.

When my child grows up, I’m going to be a very vocal and watchful parent, that’s for damned sure.
