Orthodox Jewish sexual abuse

haredi jewsThis post following on the heels of one about sexual enlightenment seems appropriate. In the tightknit “Ultra-Orthodox” Jewish community there has been a dirty little secret for a quite a while, which is rampant sexual abuse by men of women and girls. It’s basically the same ol’ same ol’: Sexual repression increases obsession and perversion.

A healthy sexuality is reflected in a healthy community, and vice versa. The xenophobia and sex-hatred within many religious cults often ends up with all manner of abuses, as we have seen also within the Catholic Church but likewise within other mainstream Christian sects as well.

The typical “religious” pattern: Teach that sex is “dirty” and to be avoided, except in terms of procreation, and segregate or hide away the women – who are traditionally the teachers of enlightened sexuality – in essence forcing the men and boys to have sex with each other. Then deny, deny, deny that you are “homosexual” or the “funny uncle” who is molesting his nieces and nephews.

All of this repression eventually escapes in obsession and perversion, as we see exemplified over and over again within the realm of religious fanaticism. As is the case with so much of human pathology, this obvious correlation is shoved aside, hidden and denied, simply making it worse. How long until the children and other victims of this religiously pathological sexual abuse receive justice? How much longer will we deny that mankind is a mess when it comes to his sexuality and to take steps to remedy this fact? In the meantime, people are suffering horribly because of it – whole cultures, ethnicities and genders, in fact.

A Haredi Town Confronts Abuse From The Inside

…Following more than a decade of sensational accusations of rapes and molestations committed by members — often leaders — of Orthodox Jewry, and increasing criticism of the Orthodox community’s leadership for ignoring or attempting to cover up the accusations, Passaic is slowly and quietly building a reputation as an exception…

  1. Orthodox Sexual Abuse
    Escorts would go out of business if it were not for married Jewish men outsider.
    Jewish men
    have a secret sexual life far beyond the norm and what others think!
    I can imagine that those ‘orthodox’ are more repressed
    and consequently more perverse.

  2. Errors…
    First of all, Judaism doesn’t teach that sex itself is bad – in fact, sex at all is considered great, but sex on Shabbat is considered a mitzvah!

    Secondly, negative views of sex don’t lead to child molestation. Child sexual abuse occurs across all groups, so it’s silly to blame the views held for that. Paedophiles and ephebophiles are what they are: predators. It’s not the religion that does it, but very often religion can provide easy access to potential victims – just as in the case of the Roman Catholic Church. Priests don’t become paedohiles because of celibacy; paedophiles become priests because it offers them a huge selection of potential victims. If celibacy caused paedophilia, why is it that the majority of offenders are heterosexual males, often in adult relationships? Clearly the religious views aren’t the cause.

    The bottom line is this: these predators will look for ways to get into positions of power and trust. It makes their objective that much easier. This is why you’ll find so many of them that are priests, rabbis, Scout leaders, teachers, etc. Again, it’s not that those roles create paedophiles, it’s that paedophiles seek out those roles.

    1. Azira, it’s nice that you can reflect idealism as concerns Judaism, but you do not seem to know what is really being taught within these orthodox Jewish communities. One of my best friends of all time was a wonderful woman who was a refugee from an ultra-Orthodox Jewish group in NYC. She could tell you stories about the sexual repression within her community – and I have seen it firsthand as well, having worked in NYC.

      She stated that because they were not allowed to [i]enjoy [/i]sex with their wives, many Orthodox men ended up in the city with hookers. And there is more.

      The mainstream monotheistic religions [i]do [/i]preach that sex is dirty, and it is certainly not “silly” to point out that this repression over the millennia has caused obsession and perversion. The results are all around. What is “silly” is to ignore these facts.

      But I certainly agree that the positions you named do attract people who are inclined to misbehave in this manner – but where did they come from? It is common that an abuser was an abused child.

      1. Interesting. Half my family is Jewish and no one at my Shul objects to sex at all. It’s just another aspect of life.

        Paedophiles and ephebophiles are what they are, not because of any ideals, but because they’re sociopaths. Some might certainly use ideals as an excuse, but it’s not the cause.

        I was sexually abused for a year from the ages of four to five, by a neighbour. He wasn’t Christian OR Jewish. Again, the problem occurs in every group you can imagine. Certainly if someone believes that sex is bad it might cause other issues, but it does NOT make a person a kiddy diddler.

        While it’s true that many abusers were once abused, the same is not true in reverse. Again, this isn’t about ideals. If it were, everyone who held them would be out harming children. The fact of the matter is that normal adults aren’t attracted to children, which is why they don’t molest them. Paedophiles are, which is why they do.

        I’m not sure what prostitution has to do with it. Certainly where I live, prostitution is legal and if those involved are consenting adults, I don’t see the relevance in this particular conversation. I suppose I don’t consider it a “perversion”. What consenting adults do is their business.

        1. I’m sorry you endured such an appalling and horrible experience. Such abuse of beautiful little children makes me sick and incensed.

          Of course, I’m not talking just about pedophilia – I didn’t even use the word in my post. I’m addressed the idea that teaching “sex is dirty” actually has the opposite effect of increasing interest in it in an obsessive and perverse manner.

          The notion of sacred sex is the alternative, and a much healthier mentality than I have encountered from either the texts or traditions of the Abrahamic religions.

    2. Deception is the KEY
      I agree with your basic assessment that sickening, parasitic child-molesters will seek out target-rich environments. They do this to increase the number of opportunities to “recruit” new victims. They are pathetic predators feeding on the vulnerable, like depraved bottom-feeders.
      However, you contradict yourself when you state that “the majority of offenders are heterosexual males.” That is utter B.S. A traditional “marriage” is ALSO used by these predators (similar to priests, rabbis, teachers, coaches, etc.) as a means of staying in the “closet” or may be used by a molester to seek access to a woman’s existing children.
      Homosexuals even use the term “straight” to describe a “closeted” homosexual. Nice try though. I guess you support the Mossad logo….”By way of DECEPTION, we shall wage war”?

      1. thank you. this belongs in with the “only white males are serial killers” and even dumber on the face of it. and clearly made to make heterosexual males feel dirty in sem way if they are in fact dumb enough to believe such a turdish lie.it is same as saying ” most male homosexuals are the ones who rape women”hterosexuals dont go with little children for sex because they are hetero sexuals jumpin jaysus . now they might have sex with your mother if she aint as dumb or as ugly as the inventor of such drivel is.

  3. how about the talmud?
    research the talmud, the holy of holy books of the jews.

    it explicitly states that sex with children is ok.

    don’t believe me? well then, look for yourself.

  4. re: how about the talmud?
    [quote name=”art”]research the talmud, the holy of holy books of the jews.

    it explicitly states that sex with children is ok.

    don’t believe me? well then, look for yourself.[/quote]

    Got a reference? Also, who’s Art?

    1. Quotes from the Talmud
      As concerns the quotes from the Talmud that are purported to reflect that it’s “okay” to have sex with children, see my article:

      Quotes from Judaism ([url]http://www.truthbeknown.com/judaismquotes.htm[/url])

      I have researched these quotes in the Soncino Talmud, and I can tell you that the one concerning the 3-year-old girl is not what is being depicted. There are other unpleasant remarks in the Talmud, but having sex with children is not one of them.

    2. A Source You Want?
      Will the exact passage do?

      Babylonian Talmud, Sanhedrin 55b:

      “Come and hear! A maiden aged three years and a day may be acquired in marriage by coition”

      1. Criminy, I stand corrected, as I’ve got that one in there:

        “R. Joseph said: Come and hear! A maiden aged three years and a day may be acquired in marriage by coition [intercourse], and if her deceased husband’s brother cohabits with her, she becomes his. The penalty of adultery may be incurred through her; [if a niddah] she defiles him who has connection with her, so that he in turn defiles that upon which he lies, as a garment which has lain upon [a person afflicted with gonorrhoea].”

        I was thinking of the one at Kethuboth 11b.

        Thanks for reminding me.

        In any event, some of the atrocious sayings being passed around on the internet are paraphrases that actually do not convey the real meaning. If you read my article, you will see which ones really are in the Talmud.

    3. you are joking anonomous,5:55,right?

      the talmud is ful of these “laws”.
      I will give you one.

      sanhedrin 55b
      its ok to screw an animal,(if your jewish)AND
      iits okay to screw a 3 yr old girl.

      the one where its ok to anal sex a 3 yr od boy i forgot,but its in there.

      by the way ,your christ is boiling in a vat of semen ,in hell.
      thats in there too.

      1. it says no such thing. it aint semen it is feces. such a slanderous liar you are.

  5. Nevermind the Art bit; I misread. My bad.

  6. re: Deception is the KEY
    [quote name=”Yeah, right!”]I agree with your basic assessment that sickening, parasitic child-molesters will seek out target-rich environments. They do this to increase the number of opportunities to "recruit" new victims. They are pathetic predators feeding on the vulnerable, like depraved bottom-feeders.
    However, you contradict yourself when you state that "the majority of offenders are heterosexual males." That is utter B.S.

    Mossad? What? Are you an anti-Semite? WTF?

    1. Also, sorry, but the majority of paedophiles ARE heterosexual males. That’s just reality. You clearly have a bias against gays AND Jews. Yes, paedophiles will often use a marriage to cover for their interest in children, but that doesn’t make them gay. Moreover, the fact is that far more girls than boys are sexually abused, again showing that heterosexual males are the main offenders.

  7. Culture/Context
    I hate to break up the Moral Jihad party, but try and evaluate the morality of sexual practices without allowing any aspect of Western, Christian tradition to creep in, even through the back-door of the unconscious, and I’ll bet you can’t, if you’re honest and reflective enough. Judgment on sexual practices has vary enormously over history, and I don’t think it’s all got to do with monotheism and repression, folks. Take a mental jaunt over to Sparta. If you aren’t familiar with their sexual practices stop reading now and go feed your cat or walk the dog.

    No, I’m not even attempting to justify anything here. I’m just saying that your moral certainty is shakier than you think, and likely not really your own–it was shoved down your childhood throats whether you were aware of the process or not.

    So, take a breather, wipe off the mouth foam and give the chest beating a rest.

  8. Actually almost all peds are gay.

    As another reader suggested they might be “closeted”. Look up the group NAMBLA if you need more proof.

    Open gays are about 2% of the population, and studies show they commit just shy of 50% of molestations. If you understand any math at all, you would realize this figure is astounding.

    So if you have a 5 year old boy, you would rather have a gay male babysitter, than a hetero male as you feel the hetero would be more likely to molest your child? LMAO

    Bullshit. Prove it.

  11. Ant Jewish Nazi Crap
    The Anti Jew Propaganda here is starting to stink like a Nazi death camp.

    What do you expect on an Acharya S. site, though…that fool tried to suggest Hitler had Jewish ancestry in the intro to here book of fourth rate sources, the Christ Conspiracy…which was a canard long refuted by real historians.

    Trash Talk Sells.

    Heil Hitler!

    1. And what sort of trash talk are you selling with this garbage you have posted.

      I see, so it’s perfectly fine to criticize the pathology of other religions, which I do on a regular basis, but don’t say anything about the pathology of Judaism or else we are “gestapo boys.”

      Such abusive remarks do not help your cause. I am frequently criticized because I don’t address Judaism enough. When I do discuss the pathology therein, unbalanced individuals make hateful comments that exonerate the bad behavior of fellow cultists while attempting to vilify the critic.

      As I see, the fanatics of all religions are little different from each other, as they are all very hateful of anyone who from the outside looking in who can see the folly of their cultic activities.

      As concerns Hitler’s purported Jewish ancestry, I have written about it only once and have not followed up with any other conclusion thereto. It is not simply a “canard,” not has it been completely disproved. Having “Jewish” blood, so to speak, is quite common for peoples all around the world.

      I see no reason to become so hateful over discussing such important issues. Nor does throwing around invective such as “neo-Nazi” make one sound intelligent.

      Furthermore, your remarks about my work demonstrate that you know very little about it.

      In short, you are here to spew hate speech, pure and simple.

      If you were really concerned about the Jewish cause, you would be showing your courage at websites that really are “Jew-bashing,” not one that has only two or three out of hundreds of articles that address Judaism – and on a post that speaks of a clear pathology that needs to be addressed.

      While you are in here spewing hatred at me, those you defend continue to commit crimes.

    2. The story of Hitler’s Jewish ancestry was widespread during the 1920s and 30s, so it obviously did not originate with me.

      Whether or not the particularly “Frankenberger” story is correct – and I agree that there is reason to doubt it based on the investigations by Preradovic, et al. – we read in [i]The Psychopathic God[/i] ([url]http://books.google.com/books?id=hW-7N2TAca0C&pg=PA126&dq=hitler+jewish+frankenberger#v=onepage&q=hitler%20jewish%20frankenberger&f=false[/url]) (127-128) that even Hitler himself believed he had “Jewish blood”:

      [quote]The more important question is a different one: did Hitler think he might have Jewish blood? The answer to this question is yes, he did. Rightly or wrongly, throughout his life Hitler lived with the awful suspicion that his own father’s father was a Jew and that he himself was “poisoned” by Jewish blood. That suspicion constituted a psychic reality for Hitler. It helped to shape his personality and to determine public policy.[/quote]

      This story is worth relating, from a historical perspective. The only thing I would do differently in [i]The Christ Conspiracy[/i] ([url]http://truthbeknown.com/christ.htm[/url]) is to put in the word “allegedly” when relating the tale that Hitler was [i]allegedly [/i]Jewish in part.

      As I say, many people around the globe have “Jewish blood,” which is really a fallacious notion, since Judaism is not a race or genetic marker. The point is made, however, that Jews and Gentiles have not lived in a mutually exclusive vacuum.

      I should add that I have myself regularly been called a “Jew” and “Zionist” because I critique the pathological aspects of Christianity and Islam.

      Again, it is always a case of fanatics who can’t see the forest for the trees and who delight in pointing fingers at everyone else, away from the pathology of their chosen cult.

    3. Anti-Judaic Supremacy–Jewish anti-goyim crap
      I can assure you that Acharya is no more pro-Nazi or anti-‘Jewish’; than Bernard Baruch’s Jewish family were pro-white anti-Jewish racists or ‘hatemongers’, as members of the KKK :ooo: Seriously, the latter is true. So is the former in her writings and in her personal relationships. :love: Acharya is against obnoxious religons and ideologies causing the hate and psycho-attitudes concerning sex, racial prejudice and other things.

      You are the Trash hater here! You Hate revelations of truth…for obvious reasons.

  12. I hope you gestapo boys have fun moderating that comment.

    Cowards!!!

  13. Libelous invective
    I should add that in this post, I hardly even discuss Judaism, and I don’t even use the word “Jews.” I am talking about religious ideology in general creating sexual pathology.

    Moreover, I have pointed out that what the Talmud says is often different from what people think from the paraphrases that are being passed around the net.

    Instead of seeing these facts, you angrily, irrationally and dishonestly accuse me of incredibly heinous rubbish that isn’t even there.

    It is not very impressive or smart to make enemies of those who are not. In fact, such anti-social behavior leaves a very [i]bad [/i]impression that furthers divisiveness.

  14. Furthermore, I have made several posts here that excoriate those who are blaming “the Jews” for everything, including 9/11.

    Before you spout off libelous invective about someone you don’t even know, you should actually study the work at hand.

    It is incredibly dishonest to present yourself as an expert on something you know very little about and then make disparaging hate speech against an individual you likewise do not know at all.

    Such smearing behavior, in fact, was what Hitler was all about, so it seems your invoking him in your own post was appropriate.

    Fortunately, I rarely encounter hateful individuals defending Judaism, but when I do they really are as bad as those they love to hate.

  15. More Anti Jew Jive…
    Acharya, so the only change you would make is that Hitler “allegedly” had Jewish in part?

    Why make the claim at all?

    Because you are a smear artist, making up astrological crap as you go, to marginalize and smear Jews AND Christians.

    The fact that you screwed up and made that claim AT ALL about Hitler so early in your book was, and is, an indication of the quality of your “historical research”.

    And YOU KNOW IT, which is why you are so angry about it being brought up!

    And, to be fair, its not just you. The posts here are full of “hate Jews” jive…that very first post was pure LIBEL.

    1. [quote]Because you are a smear artist, making up astrological crap as you go, to marginalize and smear Jews AND Christians.

      The fact that you screwed up and made that claim AT ALL about Hitler so early in your book was, and is, an indication of the quality of your “historical research”.

      And YOU KNOW IT, which is why you are so angry about it being brought up![/quote]
      What “astrological crap” have I made up? Your remarks are libelous, frankly. You seem not to know much about my work at all – very dishonest behavior presenting yourself as an expert on my work. Nor does your representation of me as “being so angry…” have any merit whatsoever.

      As I previously demonstrated, Hitler himself apparently was concerned about whether or not he had Jewish blood – this fact about his thought process is relevant.

      It is obviously you who are a very angry person to come in here, make all sorts of accusations and inaccuracies in order to smear [i]me[/i].

      Your remarks about the rest of the comments here are indicative of your inability to be accurate. I had a very polite exchange with a JEWISH person, and, as I stated above, I defended the Talmud against claims based on erroneous paraphrases.

      As concerns the quality of my research, again, it is obvious you know very little about my work. You did not even bother to look at my page on the quotes from the Talmud ([url]http://www.truthbeknown.com/judaismquotes.htm[/url]), where I painstakingly went through the Soncino edition to find out whether or not the purported quotes were in there. As I say, some of them were clearly erroneous paraphrases. Furthermore, I have linked to my friend Judy Andreas’s site as well as another Jewish site debunking these passages.

      Your sheer anger and irrationality have blinded you to these important facts and have rendered your criticisms irrelevant kneejerk reactions, rather than reasoned and rational analysis.

      1. I should add that – I am assuming from your vitriol and anger at this subject that you must be Jewish – over the years I have been impressed at how polite and restrained Jewish people have been as concerns these subjects. One example here is the poster named Azira Levana.

        Many Jews are highly civil and pleasant to be around. In fact, [i]all [/i] of my best female friends for the past 15 years have been Jewish, including [b]my son’s blessed godmother, born a Yiddish-speaking Hassidic Jew[/b] in Brooklyn. She is unfortunately deceased, but she would have approved of what I am doing here and elsewhere, because she was highly enlightened and did not separate herself from the “goyim.” In fact, while her son was that of an ultra-orthodox rabbi, her beautiful daughters were the product of her marriage to an Egyptian Muslim.

        You, on the other hand, have made repeated invective and ugly, violent remarks against my person – very disappointing and a very poor example to set before the world.

      2. well i read the “quotes and a couple pages forward of them and behind them and those quotes are surely there.and that book is a abomination.and as long as jews hold it dear they are dearly damned.that is what jesus was talking about when he mentioned the traditions of the elders and abused the pharisees with words and insured their enmity and his murder.i have read of rabbis speaches and all the famous of late and they are nasty pieces of work with nasty plans they spout from their own moufs and write the damn speeches dowbn for all to see.i recomend all jews to renounce talmud and be nice little boys and girls , they can still talk and behave oddly just cant be themselves naturally which is userous lying decieveing interloprs and destroyers of the first order.yeah pappie put day in your cornie cob pipe and smoke it upside down till the smoke fumigates yer head jed.
