I Am Here to Ask Forgiveness – An Elul Message on Abuse from YY Jacobson

Rabbi YY Jacobson, dean of TheYeshiva.net, delivers a powerful Elul message to survivors of child sexual abuse and to the Jewish community.

He started of with the quote from Breishit; “אבל אשמים אנחנו על אחינו אשר ראינו צרת נפשו בהתחננו אלינו ולא שמענו” which translates to, “Indeed, we are guilty for our brother, that we witnessed the distress of his soul when he begged us, and we did not listen.” Rabbi Jacobson then asked survivors for forgiveness on behalf of all rabbis and wonderfully connected the month of Elul to the battle against abuse.
