THE WEBERMAN ABUSE TRIAL By Arye Nisonson

The sexual abuse trial of Nechemia Weberman being played out this week in a Brooklyn courtroom is both tragic in it sordid and ignoble details but also screams out one very profound and overriding question that remains unanswered. Why did Mr. Weberman choose to go to trial and in the interim and regardless of the trial’s outcome be the focus of such an astounding chilul Hashem, that is a desecration of G-d’s name and an embarrassment to all?

The mainstream news outlets say that the trial is not just about Weberman and his victim/accuser but also has on display as well as on trial attitudes and the lifestyle of a segment of the Chassidic community in Williamsburg. What about that so-called lifestyle is exactly going to be in trial?  Is someone going to claim that it is ok or socially acceptable to physically abuse children so long as it is being done in the context of keeping them on a straight and narrow religiously observant path? I doubt it and don’t think so.

Regardless of the outcome of this trial a very significant amount of damage has already been done and it seems that there will still be more to come.  Whoever this young lady is she certainly has a lot of courage along with support from relatives and some formidable personalities in the community.

I don’t know Mr. Weberman though I have spoken to people in the community there who vouch for him and are convinced that he is being falsely accused. He is certainly entitled to his day in court and the opportunity to defend himself against scurrilous charges.  For many who are attending the trial it is about the big picture of slamming the door and expressing zero tolerance for any kind of abuse.  For Mr. Weberman and his accuser/victim it is a fight for their individual lives and futures.

    The Jewish community has gone through too many such frivolous law suits and allot of them with no merit but false statements. A number of then were found in order to extorting allot of money from the defendant. This was proofed in court, and after investigation got the so called victims to jail. First it was just a few then it kept growing to much out of hand. the options was to admit to the crime (that he maybe never committed) being a child abuser for life etc. Look up the story of rabbi lebowitz that was sentenced for 32 years. If not for his rich son that had money do get a private investigator who discovered that it was for extortion he would still be in jail. But now the so called victim is in jail and the defendant is baruch hashem out of jail free. This must come to a stop once and for all.

      The Rabbi is definitely being falsely accused by a horrible, horrible young woman. She refuses to be disciplined by her own parents, as she is an awful person and a liar, that Mr. Weberman stepped in graciously to try and help the family.

      What is it the family of the girl wants – to destroy a fine Jewish Hassidic community. Do they want to destroy all of the Jews?

      The family and their daughter, a liar, should be kicked out of the community. Mr. Weberman’s attorney must appeal. Demand hard evidence, not the words of a greedy, rebellious, lying, wild and out of control girl. A bully and mentally ill. Demand a full psychiatric examination of her by not one but several leading psychiatrists. Demand DNA evidence.

      Further any involved party must Arthur Miller’s play “The Crucible” in which several like similar lying greedy teenage girls claiming sexual abuse sent a preacher’s wife to be burned at the stake.

      According to the young horrible girls in the play, the preacher’s wife was a witch. She burned. Does this lying sheating teenager want all of the Jewish people to be burned? I doubt she cares. She is a psychopath and a sociopath. I hope she is jailed for the rest of her life in order to protect society from her lies.

    Mayer what are you talking about? Just the opposite! Lebowitz is trying to get away with it BECAUSE he has money. He was never exnorated yet and he wont be. I have a nephew that was molested by him.

    They are trying to say that he is innocent because of a technocolity.

    Its people like you that are the problem, because you are wearing blinders

    They should give them both the death penalty and clean up our community

    This guy deserves everything coming to him but the bigger fish is satmar that hired him as well as many others with no lisence at all.

    The government should go after them and hold them responsible
