Rabbi Tarfon says: “It is not your responsibility to finish the work [of perfecting the world], but you are not free to desist from it either.” (Pirkei Avot 2:16). Many victims agree that the most painful part of sexual abuse is the silence they live in and the shame they endure.

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” — Edmund Burke If someone you know is sexually abusing a child, call the Police (911) or contact us. The Rabbonim have issued a ruling, stating that a child molester is not protected by the laws of Mesira because of our Halachic and moral obligation to report abuse. Even if you only suspect that something is wrong, you must report it & allow the experts to conduct an investigation.
Studies show that sexual offenders pose a high risk of committing further sex offenses. It is necessary for the safety of the public to reduce the potential risk of physical, psychological, or emotional harm to children and their families by notifying the community of those individuals that potentially pose such a risk.
