FIRST ON PIX: Bleach thrown in face of rabbi who writes about sex abuse in Williamsburg’s Orthodox Jewish community

(Brooklyn, New York) – A Brooklyn rabbi who writes a blog about sex abuse within the insular, Orthodox Jewish community of Williamsburg told PIX 11 he had bleach thrown in his face by another Hasidic man Tuesday.

Rabbi Nachum Rosenberg told PIX11 he was walking down Roebling Street, when a man with a beard and black coat ran across from a fish store and confronted him.

“He takes a full cup of bleach and he spilled it onto me. Half of my face is burned, and my left eye, I can’t see right out of it. I see everything very faded.”

The attack happened one day after a jury convicted a prominent Satmar Hasidic man, Nechemya Weberman, of repeatedly molesting a student in the community, starting when she was just 12 years old. Weberman, an unlicensed counselor, faces up to 117 years in prison, when he’s sentenced next month.  Many Hasidic men in the community raised money for his defense.

The trial exposed secrets about the alleged Satmar Hasidic “modesty squads” that allegedly raid the homes of girls and families that don’t follow the strict rules of the Hasidic community.

Rosenberg told detectives from Brooklyn’s 90th Precinct he was attacked by a relative of the fish store owner on Roebling Street.  After the conviction of Nechemya Weberman, Rosenberg wrote on his blog the fish store owner would be the next man arrested by police, writing cheekily the man should get his bags packed.  When PIX 11 went inside the store Tuesday afternoon, no owner was present, just several workers who said they didn’t speak English.

Detectives took Rosenberg’s black jacket and pants—typical of those worn by Satmar Hasidic men—as forensic evidence in the case.  The rabbi left the hospital wearing scrubs, because his clothing was taken by the police.  Rosenberg’s son dropped him off at the 90th Precinct, where he was expected to view line-ups of potential suspects.

      It could be said that you suffer from a lack of humanity, it could be said your mind has suffered memory loss in forgetting that it is THE CREATOR who PUNISHES AND REWARDS —NOT YOU!!! Yet the affliction you suffer from most is INDIFFERENCE!!
      In a way, to be indifferent to suffering is what makes the human being inhuman. Indifference, after all, is more dangerous than anger and hatred. Indifference elicits no response. Indifference is not a response. Indifference is not a beginning, it is an end. And, therefore, indifference is always the friend of the enemy, for it benefits the aggressor — never his victim! whose pain is magnified when he/she feels forgotten. Not to respond to their plight, not to relieve their solitude by offering them a spark of hope and support is to exile them from humanity. And in denying their humanity we betray our own. Indifference, then, is not only a sin, it is a punishment. And this is one of the most important lessons one can learn between right and wrong!
      You wish harm upon those who have the courage to OPEN THEIR MOUTHS to support the VERY brave young lady! Shame on you! You’re quite simply a PIG And COWARD!

      A rabbi is a distinction based on training, much like a physician, an historian or a car mechanic. One's unsavory behavior does not unravel one's previous achievements.

    A rabbi he is not, as he has not been ordained by anybody. A molester he is, because he Mr. Rosenberg has molested the Jewish community; this is just his last victim.

    Weberman has been “found” guilty on flimsy charges; and ONLY because the jury chose to believe (like many here would “like” to believe), that every Hasidic Jew is guilty even when proven innocent.

    At best it was her word against his word, and yet they found him guilty; something which is not NORMAL in usual cases. Even Straus-Kahn wasn’t found guilty, because our system requires proof; except of course when a Hasidic Jew is on trial.

    Would hope that there are still decent people out there who aren’t blinded by blind hate. Please do speak up.

      He became a molester for exposing child molesters? Wow with commen since its no wonder that so many teens (me amongst them) are considering leaving the Jewish community, flimsy charges? Not at all they were very well grounded I he wasn’t doing anything wrong why was he buying lingerie with his community credit card? And why did he need three locks in his door (surely he was concerned about Yichud!)? Nuchem is a Jew who tried exposing the evil in the community he is unfortunately right, and even if he’s wrong according to the Torah (which you uses as proof for the innocence of Weberman) as you pointed out requires two witnesses and a din Torah.

Really? one funny person knows better than tens of thousands of ordinary followers of faith inherited by their ancestors? Absurd in my eyes..

      American Jew said:
      December 11, 2012 at 4:30 PM

      Absurd in your eyes because you don’t know this slimy Rosenberg.

      Can understand why you couldn’t understand. Rosenberg has not led a decent life until he became famous, rather infamous. A pity on his wife and children who unlike him ARE decent. He can be considered a molester of them as well.

    American Jew said:
    December 11, 2012 at 4:24 PM

    To anonymous at 4:00 PM:

    No, he became a molester when one day he decided to became famous and found the perfect issue where no evidence is needed at all in our society to push his agenda. You just need to accuse someone and his name is tarnished forever; go prove a negative! Even if you are found not guilty in court, even if it doesn’t go to court; still FOREVER people will point a finger at you as if you were proven beyond a shallow of a doubt to be guilty. That’s the nature of human beings. That’s why he is a molester; by taking things in his own hands; and accepting anyone who “says” that they were molested as absolutely truthful. He is feeding on human flesh.

    You are right, he is not a molester, he is a rapist; because as a Jew I and others in the community feel raped by him. Can you imagine how the family of the falsely accused feels.

      And you might as well add; who cares after whom they go after, and if it’s true; we need fodder to burn.

      Stupid to think that no one cares but it is YOU who finally does. If they would go after all the molesters in society at large they would have to build lots of jails; because in the general population somewhere in the vicinity of thirty percent are molested. In the religious Jewish community it is a fraction of a fraction of it.

    I’m sorry to but in (not) on this obviously exclusively orthodox problem (again not) but when has the word of a woman outweighed that of a man in this nation? EVER (?) If you really believe that there wasn’t enough proof, appeal… but trust me when I say; it isn’t going to work, the guy was found guilty by a jury of 12 according to America’s Laws… and being found GUILTY of RAPE allows me to call him a MONSTER, MAY HE ROT IN PAIN, along with all of his supporters & their families… You don’t like our laws? Move back to your country… As far as this American is concerned Justice was served. Oh and All you troglodytes who defend his behavior I hope you all have daughters that are treated exactly as she was… so if nothing happened… (you get the picture?) Sins of the father….

      American Jew said:
      December 11, 2012 at 5:31 PM

      Yes, you have a right to call him anything and believe whatever you like; and that’s because we live in this great country which gives freedom of expression even to bigots.

      That being said; he is now “legally” guilty; which gives you even more rights; like not using the word “alleged” which BTW the media mostly “forgot” to use before the trial.

      No wonder that in such a climate where the media had already convicted him, that a jury of twelve would convict someone on no evidence whatsoever, only on her word.

      Imagine if someone accused YOU; and you were convicted on her word; how would you feel towards the jury system?

      A jury is supposed to be “a jury by your peers”. In the O. J. Simpson trial he was exonerated by a jury of his peers by twelve African American jurors. Here they wouldn’t even consider of allowing any religious Jew on the jury; and you call this fair?

      No. Again in our jury system as it stands, no religious Jew can get a fair trial (guilty even if proven innocent), Multiply it exponentially when you have instigators like Rosenberg and his like. In this hateful and agenda driven atmosphere, Weberman didn’t have a chance.

      I agree with you, joshie. I'm sickened by the despicable comments. You frummies need to start using the brains you believe god gave you. The bastard gets accused, you defend him. Dozens of others come forth with claims against him, you continue to defend him. He ADMITS and PLEADS GUILTY to embezzlement, you relentlessly defend him. He gets convicted by a jury, you continue to defend him. Now someone throws bleach in the eyes of someone who at most spoke up about the incident, and you praise this barbaric behavior. You're thugs. You're hopeless, helpless sheep who follow blindly every word of your so called leaders. You worship the air that blows out of their every orifice. You're a disgrace to Judaism, and humanity at large. Stop worshiping raping, thieving thugs and start to think for yourselves, or your kind will rapidly die off as you destroy yourselves from within.

    In terms of the trial, unless you were in the court room during the trial, you- like most people, including myself- don't know exactly what was said during the trial and upon what information the case was decided. Because of this, and because of the charges, people are reacting very strongly, both to the charges filed, and the judgement rendered. For those of you who disagree with the ruling- at least recognize the fact that SOMETHING inappropriate COULD have been happening. Think about this- a man alone with a young girl (against Jewish law), with three locks, locked, on the office door (no one could enter- against Jewish law), who spent time alone with her on a trip (against Jewish law) and who also took money collected for charity for poor children and spent it on his own family (stealing, lying- against Jewish law). Even if you don't believe anything else, or doubt everything else, be aware that those are facts.

      American Jew said:
      December 11, 2012 at 6:16 PM

      The jury wasn’t given the task of convicting him of transgressing Jewish law. Does it even have to be said? The jury convicted him BECAUSE the media did; including all the news blogs. He was convicted by the media because if not him then someone else is guilty; so who cares if this Jew rots. Let THEM have it; is the hate message here and everywhere.

      In a climate like this, when you have one of a kind slimy egoists like Rosenberg; he had no chance.

      I’m not talking to you; who hates the mother who gave birth to you; I’m talking to all the decent people reading this blog and wondering if this wicked accusations of “Taliban” and the like is true.

      We have great respect for the intellect of the objective reader; and to them I’m directing my comments; not to the hate mongers spewing hate against us.

        Yeshiva bucher said:
        December 11, 2012 at 6:33 PM

        Right the jury convicted him because of a blog that they read, the $300,000.00 that was offered to the family to stand down was obviously because of paranoia, tht a innocent man would be locked up, Rosenberg is a slimy egoist who got what he deserved, you decided that I hate my mother, and I’m the hate monger, interesting. If the children would bear the sons of the parents I would really hope for one of your children to be molested by one if the men that Rosenberg tried to expose, sad as it is that’s the only way you will probably wake up.

    i was at the trial every single day listening to 15 hours of cross exam by the defense with out catching her by a single lie (the 3 locks on the door picture was taken 4 years after the fact and could have been changed 10 times over ) whilst weberman was 2 hours on the stand and lied more then ones including under oath to have never used charity money for personal use, so strictly he says she says as its in most child abuse cases since children mostly only speak up years after the abuse happened she did not lie as much as the defense tried confusing her she did not get confused he on the other hand lied more then ones so why is this community still believe he is not guilty even after his conviction with an excuse that as a Jewish guy he dose not have a chance to go free well plenty of orthodox Jews got away free under our justice system he isent the first jew on trial !!

    Yocheved said:
    December 11, 2012 at 6:24 PM

    I hate having to ask this, but seriously- What is wrong with you people?! And, just to clarify, I'm referring to the other Jews who have posted here, and the person who threw the bleach; unless the bleach was thrown to protect himself from being killed/injured, there was no justifiable reason to do that, neither by American law or Jewish. Regardless of your beliefs about the charges, or the people involved in the trial, or in a previous trial, how can you speak/behave in this way? What kind of Jew wishes harm on another- it doesn't matter what you might say about him- how DARE you say "We hope he stays blind"? In Shemoneh Esrei (part of daily prayers) we ask HaShem (G-d) "V'Chol HaRish'ah K'Rega Tovaid" (and all of the evil/wickedness should be, in an instant, destroyed). We beg for the evilness, the behaviors, to be ended; we don't ask to destroy or kill someone. And yet, here you stand, and wish that someone will suffer? Do you view yourself as HaKadosh Baruch Hu (the Holy One, Blessed is His Name) that you have the right to determine what should happen to a person? Is this how someone created B'tzelem Elokim (in G-d's Image) should speak, think or behave? Once again, what is wrong with you?! As a frum (religious) Jew I am disgusted and horrified when I see/hear things like this. Actions like this are, and create, a Chilul HaShem (desecration of G-d's Name). Why would you do that?

    To everyone on this site, I apologize for the actions, statements and behaviors of my fellow Jews. Being a Jew does not automatically mean that you are thinking clearly, or behaving the way you should, just as being a human being doesn't automatically that you will behave like a DECENT human being. Unfortunately, the actions, statements and thoughts of several Jews, or the minority, are often held up as an example of what all Jews are like. But no two people are the same- whether within the minority or majority. Please bear that in mind when reading articles and comments like those mentioned above, or hearing of these horrific situations. Thank you.

      American Jew said:
      December 11, 2012 at 6:40 PM

      You ask “What kind of Jew wishes harm on another”?

      The answer can be found in the above comments like the Jew wishing Weberman “consoling sessions with bubbeh” and his like who are spewing hate against their own; and for what reason? because they have an agenda.

      OTOH you have Rosenberg walking the streets of Williamsburg every day; and no one harms him. So who wishes whom harm?

      I (who have written here a few comments) do not wish any harm on anybody. Just came here to bring some sanity to the table. Hope you’ll help me.

      Wise beyond years is what you have written here! Rabbi Nachum Rosenberg please continue your most important work to protect children from sexual predators. It is YOU who is the HERO and I pray for your speedy recovery.
      Further I certainly agree that most Jews really do get it and would NEVER speak or post as some have done here. As much as they believe HE is hurting Jews by his action the OPPOSITE is the truth…they hurt and disgrace Jews by the hatred they have spewed here.

    American Jew said:

    Show me where an Orthodox Jew was exonerated by a jury. They usually plea bargain with a DA who has to answer the community, then go on trial and get convicted by a jury which answers to no one.

    Take the case of Straus-Kahn; why was he exonerated but this one convicted? Was there more evidence here? Of course not. But who cares about evidence; just SHOW them is the attitude here there and everywhere.

    We are a nation of laws and a jury must weigh evidence; nothing else. Here they weighed everything but evidence because there was none; it was her word against his word.

    Sorry; this is not justice. With such justice you and anyone can be sent away to jail by anyone who wants to get even with you.

    american Jew did the straus-kahn case involve a child ? if not why do u keep on bringing that up ? under united states law child abuse and child molestation cases do not need to have physical evidence go on since u have google and google it for yourself !! did u expect a 12 year old to record him abusing her ? if so i hope u supply your kids with the tools to record any and all sessions sir !

      It’s not what I expect; it is what justice and fairness expects; that no one should go to jail beacuse someone said; even if said by a 18 year old or a 12 year old. Otherwise if someone wanted to get even with you; all they needed to do is get a 12 year old to say.

      Again; there is a justice system that is based on the concept of “innocent until proven guilty”. Because in this case there was no other way; doesn’t give the right to convict anyway. Plain and simple.

      “Guilty until proven innocent” protects you, me and everyone. It is not negotiable; period.

    I find these comments shocking. I thought most ultra-orthodox people were decent human beings. These comments are hateful and cannot be those of devout Jews.

    But alas it seems they are.

    Some of these hateful posts are further proof state law makers MUST eliminate the SOL for child sexual abuse. Rabbi Nachum Rosenberg is certainly striking fear into some fellow Jews because he seeks to expose the truth. Contrary to what they believe, his actions are NOT a disgrace to those in his community but a sign of hope and redemption. Crimes committed against children by men of power MUST be exposed and NEVER should they be allowed to hide behind or justify these vile acts due to ones faith.
    Those who have attacked this Rabbi Rosenberg, both physically and by comments on this site are they who harm the Jewish Faithful ! I pray for Rabbi Nachum Rosenberg's speedy recovery and thank him for his valiant and brave efforts to bring healing for those abused as children from WHOEVER has abused them.

    THIS SATMAR PEOPLE DIDN'T START WITH THERE AGGRESSIVENESS BY RABBI NUCHEM,

    ON EVERY MAN AND WOMEN WHO SAYS DIFFERENT THEN THEM
    THEY SPIT AND SCREAM AND TERRORIZE
    EVERY SHABBOS IN WILLI THE SATMAR FOLLOWERS RABBI ZIMMERMAN AND GREENBAUM ARE SCREAMING AND RUNNING AFTER WOMEN AND GIRLS AND SHOUTING ON THEM
    THEY SHOULD BE STONED WITH STONES AND DIE WITH THEIR CHILDREN
    AND SATMAR BACKES THIS TERROR WEEKLY
    IT WAS NEVER EVER BY TORAH JEWS THAT A MAN SHOULD SCREAM ON A LADY OR A GIRL
    ONLY IN SATMAR WHERE IT IS LIKE SDOM AND AMORAH
    THAT IF SOMBODY RAPES
    HE IS THE RIGHT ONE
    AND THE VICTIM IS THE SHAIGETZ
    THIS IS NOT TORAH
    THIS IS EVIL AND RISHES
    HASHEM YISHMEREINI

      You speak the truth…but that does not give YOU the right to curse..
      In what part of the Torah did you read that you have a right to do that. You are not showing yourself to be any better than the rest..In your moment of anger…..you lost it too!!!! B'kiso. B'koiso..B'kasoi…cursing innocent children to die????? A little food for your "better than thou" theory.
      You did think you were better, didn't you? Not to me, you ain't. And, I apologize for you to all those who think we think and act alike..We don't………..

    WE ASKED MANY RABBIS FROM SATMAR WHY THEY SCREAM AND SHOUT ON PEOPLE WHAT THEY OBEY THE TORAH MORE THAN SATMAR
    AND THEY DO WHAT THEIR RABBIS ARE SAYING

    SATMAR ANSWERED THAT THEY ARE THE BOSS IN WILLIAMSBURG

    WILLIAMSBURG DOSENT BELONG TO THE US
    IT BELONGS TO SATMAR
    AND THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO DO WHAT EVER THEY WANT

    IF THIS THING WHAT HAPPENED TO WEBERMAN WOULD HAPPEN IS ISRAEL
    THEN THE WHOLE BADATS WITH SATMAR WOULD WENT OUT TO A PROTEST AGAINST THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY
    AND SCREAM EVREY DAY UNTIL WEBERMAN WOULD BE FREE

    LEITNER said:
    December 12, 2012 at 1:40 AM

    WEBERMAN WILL ANYWAY BE FREE BECAUSE HE WAS SCREAMING EVERY SHABOS ON LADIES AND GIRLS SCARING THEM WITH HIS POWER IN SATMAR
    AND THIS TO SCREAM ON LADIES AND GIRLS SHABBOS IS THE BIGGEST GOOD DEED IN SATMAR

    EVERY WEEK IT HANGS A SIGN IN SATMAR LEE GARDEN SYN WHERE WEBERMAN USED TO PRAY
    THAT ALL BOYS SHOULD GO OUT SATURDAY AFTERNOON ON THE STREETS TO SCREAM AND AGGREGATES THE WOMEN

    LIKE RABBI ZIMMERMAN IS MOLESTING CHILDREN IN PAYE MIKVAH
    AND SCREAMS A WHOLE SHABOS ONLY ON GIRLS AND LADY'S
    AND GETS PAID FOR THIS FROM THE CHARITY OF SATMAR

    They don't agree with someone so they throw bleach or burn down their homes or put them in cherem. Trouble is these victims are trying to fix things not make things worse.

    he should get 24/7 around the clock protection. u have no idea to what extent people will go to blame him and torture his family.
    people have misplaced rachmanus. they should be there for the true victims who are ruined for life. many commiting suicide, drugs….(i dont know for sure but i have strong suspician to believe my father was a victim….his anger and uncontrollable temper has affected each of my many siblings and myself….scars we bare everyday…when someone gets abused- the victim, family, future spouse, children, grandchildren all suffer the reverbrating aftershocks.)
    May Hashem protect the rightous- not the self proclaimed rightous kanaim who act with ulterior motives…and im not referring to Nachum Rosenberg.
    DA Hynes- should assign him a security group that is armed.
    bleach is one step short of arson…he should get into witness protection, no jokes.

    There was another case like this recently in Monsey where a follower of a certain rebbe nearly burned to death a dissenting member of the tzibur. I hope the same is not true here in Satmar-velt and whoever committed this horrible assault has no connection with the rebbe.

    Whether you like him or not is not even the issue, but to do something like this is an outrage. Everyone has a right for his opinion and of course you have the right to not follow him.

    The Chassidic world is starting to sound and look like Taliban: clan on clan turf fighting, intolerance of dissent, intimidation of clan members that cooperate with outside authorities, attack on members that speak out against abusers, activists that stand up for justice and equality are ostracized and are victims of acid and firebombing attacks. Rosenberg sounds like that Pakistani girl that was shot by members of Taliban because she spoke up loudly for what was right. When a person is labeled "controversial" for speaking out against child abusers, you know something is wrong with that small world of people who believe they are living a more moral life than the rest of the world around them.

    WHO DON'T REMEMBER WHAT WAR WAS GOING ON IN WILLY AGAINST BERELE BELZER (I AM SORRY FOR THE SATMAR LANGUAGE)
    HE IS NOT ALOUD TO LIVE HE MUST LIVE LIKE A SLAVE UNDER THE FURERS RESHOEIM FROM SATMAR

    THIS IS THE SAME THING ABOUT THE EIRUV
    THEN IT GOES FURTHER
    I AM ALOUD TO MAKE A PROTEST AGAINST A GODEL BYISROEL LIKE RABBI STEINMAN WHAT THE PROTEST TOOK PLACE IN FRONT OF THE SATMERAR RABBI ZALMEN LEIBB FULOP

    THEN COMES NEXT STEP THAT I MAY RAPE THE NOT IMPORTANT JEWISH GIRLS AND BOYS

    As a Jew, I am horrified that a Jew would harm another Jew. When I clicked on the headline to read the complete article I couldnt believe what I was reading. I thought only Arabs behaved like this. I hope that this is not printed in the national press and that this type of behavior is left to other groups. We, as a people have suffered so much at the hands of others it is NOT right to physically fight amongst ourselves.

    I always thought the hasidic community were nice people.
    I'm way off, these people rather keep their problems to themselves and not share any information as to what's going on within their own group to the outside world.
    When you hear a hasidic man talking or writing the truth, he's in danger from his own people.
    What kind of people are we living with?
    All those hasid's that wanted to help the man who molested the little girl are just as guilty.
    I hope the family of the little girl moves out of that corrupt community.
    They should convert because it's obvious this religion like any other is bull shit.

    Happy Hannakah!!! You people have a bizzare way (bleach throwing) of celebrating the holiday in Williamsburg. And, to think the hateful things you put into print during this special time….. Do you not know the difference between right and wrong?

    It is just another misuse of religious doctrines. I agree with the previous posts comparing this particular hasidic group (the williamsburg cult that the whole nation has been reading about) to both the taliban and other muslim extremist groups. For Shame!! What an embarrassment you are to those who practice the religion in an ethical way!!

    for the money which satmar gives him
