Security cameras installed in a Jerusalem neighborhood to deter a spate of burglaries revealed crimes far worse than anyone allegedly expected — pedophiles abducting children in broad daylight with seeming impunity:
“I couldn’t believe this was happening right around the corner from me…” These were the dumbfounded words of Mrs. S, a young mother of 2 living in the Ramat Eshkol neighborhood of Jerusalem. Mrs. S sends her son to a cheder in Sanhedria Murchevet, and was shocked to see video footage recently released by Rabbi Yizchok Berkowitz.
The security camera footage showed multiple cases of children being abducted and assaulted in the Sanhedria area, just a block away from Mrs. S’ son’s school. The videos were not released, of course, with the intention of ‘shock value.’ They have been shown to the public to highlight a community problem, and to highlight a solution. How the rabbanim came to discover this problem and begin to solve it is fascinating:
In 2018 the neighborhood of Sanhedria was overwhelmed by Friday night robberies. And so, several individuals, including Rabbi Yizchok Berkowitz, joined together to install security cameras on the street. What they saw was something far darker than robbery: Children were being picked up by pedophiles in broad daylight.
“Perhaps Hashem had sent us the burglaries, for the sake of being able to discover. Throughout the week, all sorts of individuals from outside the neighborhood are driving in and did awful things to children,” says Rabbi Berkowitz, in a direct video address. “We had absolutely no awareness of anything like this going on.”
Perhaps more surprising than the discovery of the assaults themselves was the fact that the cameras seemed to work. Awareness of the fact that the streets were being recorded caused a massive decrease in reported incidents. Those that did occur included evidence such as license plate numbers, and have led to arrests.
Unfortunately, the cameras are expensive to maintain, and funding them has been a community effort. Some months, the cameras have remained off. Rabbi Berkowitz, Rabbi Morgenstern, and Rabbi Soloveitchik have officially named their effort ‘Jerusalem Eye,’ and are raising money to keep the cameras on, increase the surveillance to further neighborhoods, and continue to keep the children of Jerusalem safe.
There was plenty of money to install the cameras to deter the burglaries — but when it comes to deterring child rape, suddenly Edom is impoverished once again.
It is remarkable that Rabbi Berkowitz had no idea that such crimes were going on under his nose, but half way around the world, last year we reported how ‘thousands’ of pedophiles in Israel operate out in the open with literal impunity.
Pedophilia is rampant in Orthodox communities worldwide — one rabbi whistleblower described it as a “child rape assembly line.”
And this should not come as a shock to any Jew who is aware that their ‘holy” book, The Talmud, condones child rape in a number of passages:
When a grown man has sex with a little girl it is nothing (Kethuboth 11b)
A Jew may marry a girl three years and a day old (Sanhedrin 55b)
A Jew may have sex with a child as long as it is less than 9 (Sanhedrin 54b)
That the name of the neighborhood where many of these abductions are taking place — Sanhedria — shares its name with the book in the Talmud that condones pedophilia is, no doubt, pure luck.
Of course, we can expect apologists jump to the defense of this crime manual, claiming that those are just one rabbi’s opinions — not a blanket endorsement — but the fact remains these are opinions of respected rabbis whose words were deemed worth of preserving for serious study.
Many pedophiles were themselves abused as children — and they grow up to repeat the problem — and no wonder that sexual perversion is embraced and promoted among Jews in the form of all-pervasive pornography — and especially gay pornography.
But the problem doesn’t end there — studies have revealed that many serial killers have serious addictions to this Jewish-produced pornography.
And even if these Jewish pedophiles are arrested, they will get a mere slap on the wrist — because the rabbis themselves have blocked laws that would hep punish the pedophiles in their ranks.
