New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind broadcast a radio show on subject recently and, according to Hikind, about five dozen victims came forward to secretly tell him their stories. There are ten active sexual abuse cases in the Brooklyn District Attorney’s office that reportedly involve the Hasidic community. Joel has since started a support group, which can be found at www.Survivorsforjustice.org
Let’s hope that there is justice for victims and perpetrators, and that schools and families discuss these issues more openly to protect themselves from future abuse.
