Jewish group Yeshivah faces royal commission child sex abuse inquiry


In the aftermath of a series of assaults, one of Australia’s leading Jewish groups will be the subject of a child sex abuse inquiry early next year.

The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse will hold a public hearing into Yeshivah Bondi and Yeshivah Melbourne.

The hearing, to begin in February, marks the first time a Jewish institution has been the subject of a royal commission inquiry.

It will look at how the Yeshivah Centre and the Yeshivah College in Bondi dealt with allegations of sexual abuse against Daniel Hayman, a former Yeshivah director.

Earlier this year Hayman pleaded guilty to one charge of indecent assault by a person in authority relating to an incident that involved a young boy on a Jewish camp in the 1980s. He was given a a 19-month suspended sentence at the Downing Centre Local Court in June.


-does it says that jews are hypersexual creatures?
-does it says that jews more than any others have some sexual pathologies ?

  • nay!
    its just probably says that -all people are equal before the laws and the media without favoritism and partiality openly reports about it.
