Efforts to combat sex crimes within the Jewish Community in Brooklyn have been spurred forward by the Brooklyn DA Office in conjunction with Jewish Groups

Newsday, through referring to the NY Daily News) is reporting that the Brooklyn DA office is working with religious leaders, therapists, etc to be able to combat the rise of sex crimes within the Jewish Community.

At the current count the DA says they are actively involved with 19 cases of reported sex crimes within the Jewish Community.

It’s great to see that such an active effort is being undertaken and that the DA is planning on having their teams go to schools and religious groups within the Jewish Community to be able to make people aware of how dangerous predators can be – at any age and with any gender I should hope.

Honestly I feel that they might focus too much on just the school issues, though it is a severe problem. However there are so many people, both men and women, who are being abused sexual that are not in the schools or for that fact are married!

They are opening a hotline for people to call in as well as having people come in for meetings and counseling.
