My cousin Nechemya Weberman (he is the grandson of my grandfather Herman’s

brother, Ben Zion Weberman) is not a sleazebag as some have suggested. It is a
fact that he is a secret member of the Nazi-loving Neturei Karta and davened at
the NK Malachim Synagogue when he was out on the street. True he snitched out
his child rape victim’s 70-year-old grandmother for Medicare fraud, he embezzled
money from a non-profit, he extorted money from other Satmar and he perjured
himself numerous times. True he is a bogus Rabbi, a sexual sadist and a serial child
rapist. But once you get to know him you will realize he is really a nice frum guy.
It is 10 AM on Monday December 10, 2012. We are waiting for the
jury to issue a verdict. It came in much quicker than expected in
about 90 minutes. Instead of the foreperson reading the verdict the
jury shouted it out. They all wanted a piece of Weberman. I don’t
blame them. He is a multiple serial child rapist who should be locked up for life. He is a
thief of innocence, he is the evil from Genesis incarnate. A Jewish Jerry Sandusky.
Weberman was convicted on one count of Course of Sexual Conduct Against a Child in
the First Degree, 12 counts of Criminal Sexual Act in the Second Degree, two counts of
Criminal Sexual Act in the Third Degree, 18 counts of Sexual Abuse in the Second
Degree, 25 counts of Sexual Abuse in the Third Degree, and one count of Endangering
the Welfare of a Child. The top count of Course of Sexual Conduct Against a Child in
the First Degree carries a maximum penalty of 25 years in prison. He faces a total of
117 years. He should be suspended by his testicles or as we say in Brooklyn,
hung by his balls.

Weberman was remanded and he will be sentenced before Brooklyn Supreme Court
Justice John Ingram on January 9 at. BE AT THE COURTROOM JANUARY 9 10:00
AM FOR HIS SENTENCING. Write letters to Judge Ingram (Hon. John G. Ingram
Supreme Court Kings County 320 Jay Street Brooklyn, NY 11201) and ask him to give
Weberman the max.

Add sexual sadist to Nechamya’s dossier: The depths of Weberman's sexual

perversions appeared limitless and his cruel and premeditated program of abuse grew
into evermore painful and humiliating acts of domination. One day during a 'lesson' in
his study when he began burning his victims bare stomach with a lighter, simply
because 'he found it arousing', she said. 'He told me, "When you go home, you put on
peanut butter,"' she said. 'I stayed in my bed for three days. I didn’t get out of bed. I
didn’t eat. I just wanted to die... I was 13, I think.'

December 9th The press is reporting that the jurors are split probably because of the
lack of physical evidence. This was a false report probably spread by this one African-
American juror who wore a hoodie to court every day. The DA’s office did a great job
despite the DA’s office. When the victim filed her case the DA’s office just wanted to
make it go away. Weberman is or was a big macha in the Satmar community. According
to the victim he is regarded as a God. After he got arrested thousands of Satbots came
out to support him. The DA’s office did not get search warrants for the computer; DNA
or semen, the office only obtained a warrant to photograph the place. This does not
make sense in a child rape investigation where child pornography might have been
present. The victim told Detective Bruno that my cousin stuck his finger in her vagina
when she was 12 and she bled. There could have been blood evidence uncovered with
Luminal like on the CSI programs on TV. The office didn’t want to start up with
Weberman until the New York Times exposed the fact that Mr. Hynes, the Brooklyn DA,
turned cases like Weberman’s over to religious courts in return for the Satmar block
vote. That’s right! DA Hynes office had turned over numerous child rape cases to that
biggest laugh of all courts short of those that adhere by Shar’ia law, the Bas Din, the
Satmar religious court comprised of Rabbis.

My cousin’s bust occurred prior to this series when the Brooklyn DA office was
still in the cover-up mode. Get it. That’s why the Defense called Detective Bruno as a
witness and not the prosecution, because they knew the first part of the investigation
was a cover up. Detective Bruno testified that he caught the case randomly but I think
he was assigned the case for a reason. After years on the force he had not significantly
advanced. He only made four pages of notes covering years of abuse. The DA’s office
turned Detective Bruno into a scapegoat since they couldn’t blame this on the Brooklyn
DA’s office and still keep their jobs. Maybe they could not get a proper search warrant
on the basis of the complaint? Also a year had elapsed since the victim had summoned
the courage to come forward to try to put an end to the sickness’s predatory behavior
but a surprise search right after the charges were filed might have turned up something.
It was worth a try.

The case was prosecuted by Kevin O’Donnell, First Deputy Bureau Chief of the Sex
Crimes Bureau; Linda Weinman, Unit Chief of the Crimes Against Children Bureau; and
Anthea Bruffee, First Deputy Bureau Chief of the Appeals Bureau. Rhonnie Jaus is
Chief of the Sex Crimes/Crimes Against Children Division. They have experience with
perverts and psyched Weberman out. They called
someone from the Department of State Licensing
Division to find out if Nechemya was a licensed
anything? The closest he came to being licensed was
being licentious. Then the defense asked, “Do you
license spiritual advisers?” The witness answered
“No.” “Spiritual Advisor?” What is my cousin a fucking
gypsy fortune teller? Does he look into his crystal matzo ball?
Once the heat was on the DA’s office they came down on the Glatt Kosher
Nostra like gangbusters and popped them for trying to bribe the victim. Check out the
above BEFORE and AFTER pictures. Why would they offer a bribe if Weberman was
not guilty? The DA assigned some of his best prosecutors to the case but they were
handicapped by the initial cover up.

Another problem here is that the judge is actually giving my

cousin a fair trial, something unheard of in Brooklyn for years. The
trial Judge is Justice John Ingram. Unlike many of the judges in
Brooklyn, he did not purchase his seat on the bench from the late
Appellate Court Justice Theodore Jones’s former law partner,
Clarence Norman. He was appointed by Governor Pataki, a
Republican. Judge Ingram is a learned man. 1 The guy is an expert
in fairness in arbitration and that helps the defense side. He
wouldn’t let other victims of Weberman testify. At least five have
come forward. Now check this out.


Even the Satmar Rebbe knows that others have said they have been raped by
the Jewish degenerate Weberman. On Saturday night, Dec 1, 2012 the Satmar Rebee,
Aron Teitelbaum of Kiryas Joel (KJ) delivered a speech to raise money for his
organizations. As part of the speech he disparaged the alleged victim of Nechemya
Weberman as a whore. Here is a link to the speech MP3 in Yiddish and below is a

I was in the city (Williamsburg) for Shabbos, and spirits are very broken. If
you keep up with the news of what’s happening in the city-it is terrifying! A
Jewish daughter has descended so low, terrible! … (Quoting the parsha:)
‘Is our sister to be like a whore?’ Terrible! Terrible! (Quoting the Talmud:)
When they go down, they go down to the ground. I think there hasn’t been
such a disgusting saga in [the history of] Charedi Jewry…. Yes! Nebech!
The Samech-Mem (Satan/the Devil) has succeeded… She too is a
daughter of our forefather Jacob, it’s a great shame, oy! And nebech,
she isn’t the only one. A whole group, nebech! It is terrible! It is
terrible! I tell you. I was in the city for Shabbos, it is very broken. They
[who are causing this trouble] come from Chasidish parents, with
shtreimels and bekitches… We must keep watch on the chinuch of our
children with seven eyes, may God protect every Jew and every Jewish

This girl was not the first Weberman had raped. This was sent to a prominent
Rabbi. The author wished to remain anonymous:

My daughter was sexually abused by Nechemya Weberman! When

my daughter was 15 years old she began to dress differently than our
family’s dress code and my husband and I were very worried about what
this signified. We were advised to take her to Nechemya Weberman, the
chassidishe therapist for “troublesome” girls. We trusted Weberman fully,
as he was also my husband’s good friend. During the 2 something years
my daughter was in “therapy” with him she did not tell us what went on
during almost every session. After my daughter’s wedding, one day she
told me, ‘Mommy if you would know what Nechemya Weberman did to me
you would kill yourself! He showed me relations videos, he made me do---
----to him, he did ------to me, and he told me that I should never, ever tell
anyone because no one would believe me; I was known as a
“troublemaker” and he was a very Choseve (prominent) person, I would
have no credibility and would only damage my reputation further! He tried
to convince me that no one understood me, cared for me or loved me as
he did. For sure my parents did not understand me or love me!’ In
hindsight I now remember that whenever I called him for a progress report
or an update on my daughter a strange thing happened. He would actually
instigate me against my daughter! I used to wonder why doesn’t he say
something like - Don’t worry - we are working with her – there is hope for
improvement – instead he would say what an “Azas Ponim” she was, how
she would burn in Gehenim for her behavior!’ I would be so very angry at
her and she at me; we were going at each other all the time. When the
campaign in support of Weberman was started this winter and I saw the
signatures of the Rabbonim I couldn’t bear it anymore. I myself went to
Rabbi Teitelbaum (R’ Zalmen Leib’s son) and to Rabbi Pollack and told
them my story. They were shocked - ‘Oiy, Oiy vie, we didn’t know, we
were told he was the victim of a bilbel (libel). However, you should know –
we are still Yiddishe kinder and for this Weberman doesn’t have to sit in
jail, we will take care of him and he will never do this again, and do not
hinder us from protecting him!

The bottom line here is that Nechemya molested young virgin harmless children
when they came to him for help. He is a serial rapist. He should be suspended by his
testicles or as we say in Brooklyn, hung by his balls.

December 6th. The defense lawyer Spacey Stacy Richman gave her final arguments
and summation of the previous testimony. She started out waving her hands around
saying ”Witches, Salem Witch Hunt” “the McCarthy era Witch Hunt for Communists”
then told the jury there was a witch hunt going on by the D.A.’s office targeting Satmars.
Too dramatic! she looked like she was in some High School play, and she stated,
“During the Salem witch trials, people would never be given a fair shake. In the 1950s, it
took one word from a neighbor to get someone accused of being a Communist,” she
said. “What’s the most we can say today? Child sexual abuser. And it is an awful thing.
But the wrongful accusation of a child sexual abuser is even worse.” But guess what?
She was wrong about Weberman and wrong about McCarthyism. When the KGB files
were released we learned that the Kremlin had a policy of recruiting CPUSA members
as spies so it was smart to be on the lookout for them! She was condescending to the
jury, and kept repeating the same thing over and over and over again, “there is no
corroborating forensic evidence.” To counteract this she kept using the big word indicia.

The victim is just this little wisp of a girl and it took guts to stand up to these
bullies. This girl comes from a good family and was an A student. Her rebellion was
really minimal. In the closing arguments the ADA said it was a shame the victim had to
experience her first sexual encounter with Nechemya who was characterized as a “fat
old man.” He is a fat, disgusting piece of shit.
Richman no doubt thinks blacks are “dumb schvatzers”
and so she kept repeating the same thing over and over
to make sure it was drummed into to the heads of the
variegated jury. She was condescending to them and I
hope they picked up on this. This woman is a feminist
traitor. Feminist groups managed to get a law passed
where the victim’s previous sexual history cannot be
introduced as evidence during a rape trial. But this
turdbag tried to get it in anyway. She claimed the victims
charges were revenge for my cousin ratting her out to
her parents about an affair she was having with her boyfriend that Nechemya convinced
her father to videotape. Hey, an audio tape would have sufficed but Nechemya wanted
to get his jollies off by making her father watch her giving her first boyfriend a BJ. But if
the victim wanted revenge she could’ve gotten her boyfriend, Bori, who was a
neighborhood watchman dude to get a couple of his friends together and kick the shit
out that fat ugly pervert. She didn’t have to go to these extremes where the world would
know what he did to her.

December 5th I came into the courthouse this morning a little late
as someone had passed out on the train. I saw Mike Farkass Jr. a
former prosecutor turned high profile defense attorney haul his ass
in and lift up a restraining ribbon on the first floor of the courthouse.
When the session started Fuckass was nowhere to be seen. I
heard people saying, “I hope is alright.” That sounded a little
strange to me. So told his father I saw him. He didn’t seem too
happy to hear it from me. Where was this dickhead? When he finally arrived in court he
was making all kinds of jokes and asides during the testimony. Judge Ingram told him to
cool it. If you ask me he was high on coke, and that was why he was late. He stopped in
the men’s room to snort a few lines. Maybe he had diarrhea or was constipated, he
looks constipated. I suppose he just a defense attorney but I hate Weberman so much
for disgracing the good wing of the Weberman family it rubs off on him. It was a big day.
The first thing I saw was my cousin. He figured out who I was by this time, the last living
direct descent of Moshe Weberman, the patriarch of the Weberman family who came
over here in the late 1800’s from Satmar, Hungry. An angel of death summoned from
the past to flick buggers at his wife and sister as I sat behind them as much as I could.
My cousin gave me a look as if he wanted to kill me. He is good at those intimidating
looks because he has a split personality. One the one hand he is Mr. Nice Guy helping
Satmar’s find their way in life, a family man with 10 children and many grand children
and on the other hand he is an embezzler and child rapist.
The newspapers here reported that when my cousin went passed a conference
room where the victim was he also gave her a threatening look. What’s he going to do?
Send the modesty squad around and make me button up my blouse. Or zip my fly. The
Modesty Squad (Vaad Ha’Tznuis) enforces the Satmar regulations regarding how
women must dress and look and think. Like Hollywood should make a remake of
Dragnet and the Mod Squad based on the adventures of this group of masked men
known as “The Vaad Squad.”

The story you are about to see is true. The names have been changed to
protect the innocent. CLICK HERE My name’s Saturday, my partner’s
name is Nechemya Weberman, we’re religious police. It was 1300 hours
and a hot day in Williamsburg. My partner and I were exchanging jokes
about goys when we were told to interview the owner of a chasidishe
underwear store on Pitkin Avenue about some immodest contraband she
was selling under-the-counter. We arrived at Victoria’s Underwear at 1330
hours and asked Victoria if my partner could try on some of her stockings
to make sure they were thick enough. I told Victoria, we want the facts,
nothing but the facts. Nechemya went into the dressing room and when he
came out he was wearing a bra from Fredrick’s of Hollywood. “I found this
in their when I was trying on the stockings. Looks like you are in deep
dreck, Victoria.”

Oh yeah, the running joke in this case is that the Detective who took the victims
complaint was unable to add two two digit numbers and said he could not do it because
he was under pressure. He knew what was going on and he deliberately discredited

Nechemya Weberman is fucking weird; like I wrote a Jeckel and Hyde

personality. Like he sees this young girl, maybe 7 years old and his dick gets hard and
he falls in love with her. He becomes obsessed with her and is intent on making her his
whore as in some 19th Century French novel. He moves in on her family and co-opts her
dad Bernie. Bernie lends the child molesting piece of shit his car to let his daughter to
be molested in during a 12 hour fuck fest Nechemya pulled off, and believe me he got
pulled off numerous times during this ride. Fucking pervert.

This guy is a con man and hustler. The fat fuck set up a charity to collect money
for poor Satmar families. But guess what he kept the money for himself and went on a
shopping spree at Victoria Secret. Now it has been intimated that my cousin used this
nonprofit money to buy underwear at Victoria Secret for some girls he had crashing at
his pad. I don’t think he was buying it for the crashers, I think he was buying it for
himself. On the other hand it is unlikely he would do anything with a cross in it, like
cross dressing.
Returning to Bernard, the father of the victim, he is the biggest schameil in the
whole sordid affair. The victim’s mother got suspicious when my cousin had arranged
this 12 hour fuck fest disguised as a trip to the Catskill’s to sooth the victim’s nerves. If
the fucking jury doesn’t catch on to this shit it is going to be a sad day in Brooklyn. The
victim’s mother told Bernard that this violated Yahood. This is some law King David
drew up ages ago where men and women who aren’t related can’t be in a locked room
together because there was a lot of rape going on back then. But all this locked room
stuff also has symbolic meaning as Nechemya is going to be in a locked room for 23
hours a day for quite some time.


But that is sad. The dude is just misunderstood. You see my cousin is really a
hippy at heart, like myself, and ran a crash pad for young girls. Like totally cool man. He
had at least three chicks crashing there. The hippy “Rabbi” and his “counterculture”
attorneys brought in one of them, a Weberman related Satmar lady, a crasher at my
man “Nechs” crib who testified that the lock on my cousin’s smaller office, backroom
door was inoperative so he could not have turned it into a cubicle as in a Times Square
whorehouse. This jive-assed Jewish bitch lied like a motherfucker. Real credible
witness; She said she had left home, hit the streets and found a boyfriend. Who was her
boyfriend? 50 Cent? She was a-hookin’ and a-crookin’ if you ask me. Gluck said after
she had no place to stay following troubles at home, “He
offered (for me) to come live at his house [crash at his pad].”
She added that during her time there, two other hot Satmar
chicks occasionally camped out there. One of those girls
has told authorities she caught Weberman and Gluck in a
compromising position. That person refused to testify for
fear of retribution, a source said. But Gluck, asked if one of
the girls ever walked in and saw her sitting on Weberman’s lap while he had an
erection, replied “No.” He got his kicks off Satmar chicks. This guy has ten kids, he is
schup city. He should have opened up a sperm bank. But he had as much of a chance
of getting head off his wife as the Pope turning Jewish.

DECEMBER 4 The trial is getting to be a family reunion. I sit in back of NECHEMYA

WEBERMAN and his two sisters who don’t wear wedding rings. I wouldn’t be surprised
if he was doing them. The sisters, the Weberman wife and some other rag heads
started cackling when one of Nechemya’s defense lawyers stated that there was no
corroborating forensic evidence in this case, only the word of the victim. The reason for
this was that the NYPD and the DA’s office never conducted a forensic investigation.
This was because Nechemya’s bust went down before the New York Times article
came out that exposed the fact that the DA Hynes was turning a lot of Haredi child
molesting cases over to Bas. Then I found out that the head of the Girls Yeshiva section
of the United Talmudic Academy where the victim attended is married to a Weberman.
Nechemya got a loan from the school of $71K which he has no intentions of paying
back. He also managed to shake down the family of the victim by for $35K by giving a
corrupt Rabbi in a Jewish Court a kickback and using his status as a Weberman. So
add grifter to his list of crimes. And the dickhead is also a freaking moser, a snitch, an
informer. The victim’s mother was questioned about some minor medicate fraud – the
judge told her to shut up and the next day she took the fifth. Medical records are almost
impossible to obtain and there is no way a judge would have signed an order to release
these records as Medicare fraud had nothing to do with the case. These records had
been given to Weberman after he wormed his way in to the victim’s family in order to
ensnare his prey.

NOVEMBER 29 I began attending his child rape trial on Thursday November 29, 2012. I
arrived at the courthouse at 10AM only find the trial was to resume at 1PM due to a
funeral that the judge had to attend. I had three hours to kill so I walked across the
Brooklyn Bridge to Chinatown and rescued three lobsters from the tank they were
swimming in. When I arrived at the courthouse I was told I was not allowed to bring live
lobsters into the courtroom. I split but being a garbologist I found a garbage can with
little in it behind a car so I lifted up the bag and put the lobsters between it and the metal
of the can. They would stay cold and not have to come into contact with garbage as I
had to do in the courtroom.

I sat down behind a group of devout women who came to support this little wisp
of a girl who had the nerve to stand up to the most pathological group in the Jewish
Community, short of Neturei Karta. The victim stood tough against cross examination by
“its” attorney, George Farkas. Farkass was trying to prove that she made up the 88
incidents of rape because she was angry about a film of her having sex with her first
boyfriend made Candid Camera style by Nechemya Weberman and Bernard, who was
rumored to be a defense witness but this never came to pass. The victim would not give
an inch and said she didn’t recall this and she didn’t recall that. Like I can identify with
the victim having grown up in an Orthodox Jewish household and not digging it in the
least. She wrote poetry and songs, I called myself “Boph the Poet.” She tried to run
away from orthodox camp, so did I.
The victim does not have the mentality of a Satmar in that she
wants to think for herself. As a result she had problems at the
United Talmudic Academy girl’s school which was partially
founded by the Weberman family. Rabbi Ben Zion
Feurewerger, Weberman's Cousin named after Ben Zion
Weberman, runs the Satmar Girls School and Himself Gropes
After Women. The only reason he is in this position is because
he won the longest pais contest three years in a row. They
didn’t like the way she dressed or thought. The brainwashing
was not working. She put down her feelings about her
oppressors in poetry and songs which Farkas made a big deal out of as if it were a
crime to do so. He also focused on her relationship with her first boyfriend, his arrest
instigated by Weberman and her father, the video tape of her having sex with him, the
fact that her present husband was her first boyfriends best friend, the restraining order,
the fact she called her first boyfriend the love of her life, the whole sordid megellah.
There was only one minor problem here. Nechemya Weberman had stuck his finger into
her vagina when she was twelve years old and messed up her mind, maybe for life.
How is she supposed to have a normal sex life? Then he comes along and gets her
father to make this video so the father has to watch his daughter having sex because
some dude is moving in on his thing.

What makes this pervert different from all other perverts? Jews believe Jews
adhere to higher moral standards and it hard to believe that a religious man would do
such a thing for fear of missing out on the afterlife. The Satmar believes that life really
begins after you croak and your role on earth is to be a soldier of God and make many
sacrifices in this life. What caused this? That side of the Weberman family comes from a
really limited the gene pool and everybody is like related to everybody. Is it that my
cousin is a genetic defective? All ten of his children seem like well-programmed

The victim testified that my cousin had his eye on her since she was a young girl.
He manipulated her whole life but the plan backfired and now he will be locked down in
a Special Housing Unit 23/7 that is if he is lucky and not placed in general population.
You see Nechemya will not do well in General Population as he has never been in
general population even outside of prison! He has only associated with fellow cult
members, and even that association became more rarified when he joined the Satmar
Religious Secret Police Force, the Vaad Ha’tznius. Weberman would win the trust of the
children and teens he was counseling. They would confess their sins to Father
Weberman in Weberman’s version of a confession booth, a locked back room. Say one
of them told him she had a cell phone although she knew that was against the rules.
Weberman would get his posse who were wearing white sheets as masks and raid the
child’s home in the middle of the night in order to remove the cell phone. And
Weberman was one of these guys! Nechemya Weberman Grand Kleagle of Jewish
version of the KKK. The D.A. said he was a power broker and used the information from
his counseling sessions to advance his position in the Satmar community.

There were many people that made me proud to be a

Jew. Abigail, from who
was covering the trial. This is an excellent website for
more complete coverage of the proceeding. There is a
wall of shame that is quite interesting and indicates
that this sort of thing is much more widespread in the
Orthodox community than I believed. Rabbi Rosenberg
was there. This
mensch stood up not only to the sicknesses in his community but to DA Charlie Hynes
who looked the other way for many years. I call him the Victor Riesel of the Haredim.
Riesel was a crusading labor columnist who was blinded by the mob. Rabbi Rosenberg
was attacked by Meilech Schnitzler, 36, of Williamsburg (photo above). Rabbi
Rosenberg suspects his father of being a pervert. Schnitzler was charged with felony
assault, misdemeanor assault, menacing, criminal mischief and criminal possession of a
weapon. Looks like they are throwing the Five Books of Moses, and the Talmud, and
the Gommorah, and the Shulchin Orach at him!

The big question for me when I left the courthouse that day was, “Were my
lobsters still there?” they were there and they looked happier than Nechemya’s cousin,
Rabbi William Mordechai Weberman, at a Holocaust Denial Convention in Tehran.

NOVEMBER 30 I put on my New York Department of Sanitation hoodie, as I was

dealing with Weberman trash, and I took a seat directly in back of my cousin and his
two mousey looking sisters. These synagogue mice (no way were they church mice)
were conversing in Yiddish about trivial gossip. After they had a brief conversation with
a journalist the female member of the defense team came over and warned all three not
to talk to the press. My counselor from Camp Maple Lake, Avi Dershowitz, made a
cameo appearance. I believe he was there to defend an orthodox Jew who was
convicted as a child molester even though the witness against him said the was
molested at a time when they were apart. The session started an hour late thanks to a
tardy juror.

Judge Ingram said, “This case is very important to the State of New York…” If
Weberman gets off the hook people are going to accuse the District Attorney’s office of
favoritism to the ultra-Orthodox Jewish cults who vote in blocks. It’s not going to look
good for the Brooklyn Democratic Party that controls the courthouse. Also Judge Ingram
has taken a fatherly interest in the defendant and he knows from years of experience
that she is telling the truth. If there was ever an impartial judge it was him

The ADA handling this case, Kevin O’Donnell, is conversant with

Jewish law and pointed out to the Jury that unrelated single men
and women are not allowed to be alone in the same room
together. Yichud (seclusion) Jewish Law prohibits men and women
from being alone together in a secluded location unless they are
married to each other or are close family members. This even
applies to a patient being alone in a closed room with a physician.
Same room together? The pervert had a freakin’ whorehouse in
his backroom. He had a bolt lock on the office door so he wouldn’t be interrupted when
he was raping one of his victims. The ADA talked about a car trip the victim and
perpetrator took together and there was no objection from Farkas because it happened.
And the family was billed $1500 for it. The victim was asked how she knew the Satmar
community was trying to silence her. She responded, “They tried to bribe me.” Judge
Ingram started to like flip out. He said “Strike this from the record” and instructed the
jurors that there was nothing linking Weberman with any bribe attempt. There was
however, a bribe attempt on my cousin’s behalf. When asked her motivation in bringing
forth these charges she said she did not want to see what happened to her happen to
anyone else again. Farkas had the nerve to ridicule this statement. Then Farkas asked
about money that the victim’s family owed Weberman. They had been paying
Weberman for the so-called counseling sessions! Basically he had co-opted this family
and used them for his own perverse ends. The victim testified that he showed her
pornography and then made her reenact the sex acts during their closed-door
molestation sessions. I had to “copy what was in the porn,” the blond 17-year-old
testified in Brooklyn Supreme Court. “I remember it happening a lot.”

How did the Nechemya Weberman story end up on the front page of the Times
hopefully insuring his conviction and life sentence? It was due to a confluence of events.
The first was my cousin’s arrest. This came after the victim told a licensed mandated
reporter that she had been traumatized and molested, who I believe reported it to the
police, and she was called in to file a complaint which she did.

The second factor was that Yiddish posters announced that there was a benefit
being thrown for an accused Brooklyn, New York child rapist by the Satmar Hasidic
sect. This flipped people out. The third factor in Nechemya’s demise was a three part
expose in the New York Times about how the Brooklyn D.A.’s office mishandled child
rape claims in the Satmar community. The fourth was the bribe attempt.

The fifth was the arrests of four men at the trial when the Satbots used their cell
phones to photograph the victim then their plan was to plaster her picture all over
Williamsburg and on the Internet. After this was discovered
everyone had to surrender their cell phones are were
searched. One of the moron’s who was arrested changed
his name to Lemon Juice. Imbecile. The charges against
one of the four, who came from a rich Satmar family, were
dropped. A court officer opined it was similar to a gang trial
involving the Crypts and the Bloods as far as witness
intimidation went. “What you have done, apparently, is take
the photos in the courtroom yesterday and today,” Ingram
said. “You know about the law, you know about the Torah,
you know about rabbinical courts — this is a civil court.” He added, “You might want to
avail yourself of counsel. Never come into my courtroom ever again and bring a phone
with you.” As stated when the maggots victim was composing herself in the conference
room with her husband during a break in her testimony Weberman appeared outside
the glass, said Rabbi Yakov Horowitz, a family friend of the victim. “He gave her an
angry, threatening look and wouldn’t leave,” said Horowitz. “She jumped up and said,
‘Get out of here!’ When I came in, her hands were shaking.” Law-enforcement sources
confirmed that the alleged intimidation was reported to the court. “We can’t control any
alleged complaints. I’ll only say that it’s pure, unadulterated bulls--t,” said Farkas. As
stated he gave me the same look and it gave me a warm feeling.


Who ever heard of a benefit for a serial child rapist? The Jew haters
had a field day with this one. The surreal “Support Your Local Child
Rapist” scene was described thusly: On the street outside the
Continental catering hall in Williamsburg, Weberman’s supporters
filled the sidewalk, spilling onto the street to be pushed back by police.
Inside the packed room men of all ages listened to their community
elders speak out in support of a man they claim has been wrongly accused. Across the
street, a group of around 100 advocates, abuse survivors and supporters of the victim
had set up a counter-demonstration, carrying placards that read "protect victims, not
abusers" and chanting "denial enables abuse." At the start of the evening, there was a
brief clash and an arrest as one of the rally-goers crossed the street to confront
"People came out tonight to support the American
ideal of innocent till proven guilty," said Yossi
Gestetner, a Satmar Hasid who was appointed official
press contact by the rally's organizers the day before
the event when news of it reached the media. "Many
people in the community are fed up that this whole
case gets tried in the court of public opinion not the
court of law. People feel under siege."

Yossi Gestetner has nearly 3,800 followers on Twitter. There he expresses his
conservatism and suggests that Bill Clinton bears some responsibility for 9/11 or that
President Obama may not be an American-born citizen. Accordingly, Ed Cox (who
incidentally grabbed me when I threw a tomato at his father-in-law, Richard Nixon), the
New York State GOP chair considered the 27-year-old Gestetner to be a natural fit to
bring Jewish voters out for the Republican Party when Cox appointed him to the post of
New York State GOP Director of Jewish Outreach.

An expose by The Jewish Channel put an end to this when it aired

an interview between Gestetner and journalist Steven Weiss, in
which Gestetner’s past work consulting for the group True Torah
Jews Against Zionism was revealed. Meir Weberman, Nechemya’s
uncle is the head of this front group for Neturei Karta in which
Meir’s son, Mordechai Weberman is a leader. This is a case of
interlocking directorates. When confronted in the interview,
Gestetner equivocated often about his previous work as well as his personal views on
Zionism and Israel, never endorsing the idea of a Jewish State: “I’m an American, I live
in the United States, and I hope to see that people who live in Israel, such as I have
immediate family, that they are safe and sound.” The interview also touched on
accusations that Gestetner advocated on behalf of alleged criminals and child abusers
in the Hasidic community. On Gestetner’s blog, one can find a vigorous (and baffling)
defense of the decision by the family of Leiby Kletzky—the eight-year-old Hasidic boy
whose murder made headlines across the country last summer—to rely on a local
Jewish civilian patrol (shomrim) to investigate the boy’s disappearance instead of
immediately calling the New York Police Department. Numerous ultra-Orthodox
communities have come under major fire for refusing to report crimes within the
community to local authorities (and ostracizing those who do). According to the report
by The Jewish Channel, less than 30 minutes after GOP State Chairman Ed Cox found
out about the investigation of his new appointee, Gestetner had resigned.




The next nail in his coffin (bad metaphor Jews are not allowed to be buried with
metal) came after a Satmar operative was arrested for allegedly offering a $500,000
bribe to Weberman’s victim to get her to drop charges against him. Abraham Rubin 48,
of Williamsburg offered the hush money to the victim using her boyfriend as a cut out.
Prosecutors charged Rubin with bribery, witness tampering and coercion. They said that
he had been recorded offering the accuser’s boyfriend the money, and he suggested
that the young couple could flee to Israel to avoid testifying. So she would have to leave
the United States, leave her family and be further victimized in return for a lot of money?
And where was this money coming from? Did they raise half a million dollars at the
benefit for Weberman? Or was the money part of the payment the Neturei Karta
received from Iran in return for attending the Iranian Nazis Holocaust Denial
Conference. Shortly after that conference Mordechai Weberman was spotted driving a
brand new SUV. Rubin also offered to provide them with a lawyer who could help them
avoid cooperating with prosecutors. Rubin told him that Weberman and the community
as a whole would be better off if she took the bribe and the case went away. I met a
friend of Rubin who told me that the feeling in the Satmar community was that he was

This is what transpired before the bribery bust - D.A. Hynes was aware that
allegations had been made in blogs that deal with the Haredi world by the victims’
boyfriend, Borie, that he had been offered half a million dollars to make this whole thing
go away and when he refused his Kashrut certificate was revoked. Deutsch reported
that “Rabbi Shmuel Berger a notable kashrut endorser in Williamsburg, has revoked my
kashrut certificate from my restaurant Old Williamsburg Cafe at 45 Lee Ave
in retaliation for my role in the Weberman affair.” Prosecutors charged three brothers,
Jacob, Joseph and Hertzka Berger with coercion, saying they threatened and then
removed the kosher certification of a restaurant run by the accuser’s boyfriend. The
brothers are sons of Shmuel Berger who issues kosher certifications to stores. The
defendants warned him they would rip down the sign on his store if his girlfriend did not
go along with their plan. One afternoon, in fact, they allegedly tore down the sign to
show they meant business. The Glatt Kosher Nostra?

None-the-less arresting these men in a pre-dawn raid was overkill. They should
have been allowed to self-surrender as they have never been accused of a violent
crime. Jews are civilized; we are the People of the Book. When I grew up in Brooklyn in
the 1950’s we ran all the books.


A Beautiful Shabbos “Oh what a beautiful shabbos, oiy what a beautiful day, I got a
wonderful feeling the Moshiach is coming my way.”)

One of the reasons I think Weberman is guilty is because no

one can ever adequately answer the question “Why have an
old fat Orthodox man counseling young Orthodox girls?” It
makes no sense. There is strict separation of the sexes in the
ultra-Orthodox Satmar community. Men and women sit in
different parts of the synagogue separated by a wall known as
a mechitza. In the Satmar shul’s the mechitza’s are the same height as the Israeli
Security Wall. Men dance with men at weddings which put the caterer’s liquor license at
risk in the 1950’s. Satmar men cover their wives body with a sheet when they have
intercourse with her. Like Abraham Rubin’s use of Borie, they use cut outs. To illustrate
how far-reaching this separation is the Satmars issued an edict forbidding men and
women’s clothes to be washed together. I personally think men’s and woman’s garbage
should be separated.
How did Weberman get away with it for so long? How did Jerry Sandusky get
away with it for so long? He intimidated his victims like some Mafia gangster threatening
them with everything and anything if they told anyone what transpired when they were
left alone with the fat pervert Weberman. Parents didn’t suspect him because part of his
cover entailed being part of a circle of Satmar zealots who preached stricter standards
of sexual modesty. Weberman is a member of “Vaad Ha’tznius,” roughly translated as
“modesty patrol,” a group that confronts members of the Hasidic community when they
act immorally.


The New York Times expose of the way Brooklyn D.A. Hynes treated sex crimes
within the Satmar community hit my cousin like a lead Matzo ball. The Times reported
that in return for their votes the Satmar were allowed to hear complaints of child rape at
a Bas Din. Jewish child rapists seemed to have gotten better deals than others. It was a
big flap. My cousin asked for a change of venue to Kiryat Joel but did not get it. But
that’s the way the Shmira Matzo crumbles. You destroy people’s lives your life gets
destroyed. And my cousin is not going to do easy time. He is a child molester and a
Jew, which is two strikes against him – the third – his case got a lot of publicity. Three
strikes and you are dead kosher meat. He better ask for protective custody.


This chain of events started when my cousin, an unlicensed

bogus psycho-therapist was accused by a girl that he counseled of
having sex with her while she was between the ages of 12 to 15. One
of his charges reads: ORAL ANAL SEXUAL CONDUCT which means
conduct between persons consisting of contact between the mouth and
the penis, the mouth and the anus, or the mouth and the vulva or
vagina. As stated Weberman's defense attorney is George Farkas, a
Mafia attorney. Farkas’s clients was Frank (Frankie Steel) Pontillo who
was arrested in 1991 during the bloody Colombo family war for a plot to murder
members of a rival faction by disguising himself as a Hasidic Jew.

Farkas claimed in early news reports that a year before the other allegations
emerged the girl - still underage - had an older boyfriend. Her father concerned that the
pair had embarked on a sexual relationship, secretly videotaped them alone and the
boyfriend was brought before a judge. Farkas says that although Weberman advised
against the scheme, the girl blames him and wants revenge. “She is being
manipulated,” Farkas says, by "nefarious, vicious people out to bring Weberman down.
He would die before he would molest anyone,” said Farkas, calling the charges
“horrendous. They are disgusting. And they’re despicable. Not just — it’s absolutely
awful. But what I will tell you is that this man will die before he’s branded a child
molester,” Farkas said. Farkas added that Weberman “has a very high standing in the
community and has helped troubled families in the past.” Then he blamed the victim,
saying that the family that brought the charges was “dysfunctional.” The problem here,
however, is that others have made allegations against my cousin.

On July 18, 2012 Farkas stated, "There is a motive of revenge," when asking to
introduce the sex tape evidence at trial. "I haven't seen the video, but I heard it's very
explicit," a source said. Prosecutors acknowledged the tape was shown to them and
that the case against the boyfriend was eventually dropped. They note that Weberman
accompanied the father to the district attorney's office in 2010 to make an allegation of
statutory rape. But they argued the decision of the alleged victim, now 17, to accuse
Weberman of molesting her at age 12 came after she heard that he molested others.
"We would strongly oppose to bringing in the complainant's other sexual activities," said
prosecutor Anthea Bruffee, citing the stringent rape shield law, which generally
precludes evidence on victims' sexual conduct. "You have a high hurdle to leap over,"
Justice John Ingram told Farkas.

The judge will ruled in late August he would not make an exception to the shield
law and allow the jury to hear about the sex tape. He will also issue a decision on
prosecutors' requests to bring other witnesses who claimed Weberman abused them -
even though no other charges have been filed against him - and to introduce a Hasidic
cultural expert as a witness. There were no other witnesses who said they were abused
by Weberman and no Hasidic expert testified. Farkas asked that the video tape be
shown in open court. This would dissuade the complainant from testifying. Read more
about this in The New York Post.

A leaked version of events:

A father was convinced his 16-year-old daughter was having a relationship

with a 17-year-old boy, so the father set up a hidden camera in the house.
What he recorded shocked him — what he saw the daughter doing to
please the young man. They are Orthodox Jews, in Brooklyn. The father
had already taken the daughter to seek counseling with Rabbi Nechemya
Weberman in years past. Just as he had taken her older sister. It is a
common practice in the community for a respected person to be a
counselor, or serve as a therapist. Weberman is affiliated, police said, with
Brooklyn’s United Talmudic Academy, a yeshiva.

Now, the father went to the Brooklyn DA’s office with the tape, and Rabbi
Weberman. The Brooklyn DA’s office set up special channels of
communication to bridge cultural gaps that might be beneficial to both
sides. However, the more that investigators talked to the parties involved
— especially when they spoke with them separately — the more that there
were questions which indicated something was not right. Around Feb. 16,
2011 the girl told a counselor at school that the rabbi has been raping her
for years. The counselor reported it, and when the investigators talked to
her again, she claimed there were at least 16 incidents at 263 Classon
Avenue, in the Clinton Hill section of Brooklyn, which serves as
Weberman’s home and office. It is where the counseling sessions took
place. The girl told investigators it began in 2007, when she was 12; and
continued through 2010.

Detectives assembled sufficient preliminary evidence to start a case; and

arrested Weberman on Wednesday February 25, 2011. He was brought to
Brooklyn Criminal Court that night, and told he was being charged with
rape, endangering the welfare of a child, sexual abuse, sexual misconduct
against a child, and engaging in a criminal sexual act.

This appeared in frum women’s blog and tells the story in detail:

In great pain we feel the need to publicize a terrible situation that occurred
in our own community with the hope that something can be done to heal a
terrible wound and prevent future tragedies from occurring.

The victim was a bright 12 years old in the sixth grade in a Chassidic
Yeshiva school for girls. During class she would ask many theological
questions, some which the teachers were incapable of responding to. The
teacher turned to the principal for guidance and answers to the questions.
The principal summoned her to his office and berated her for asking such
questions calling her an apikorus (heretic). He demanded that she see a
counselor in order to stay in the school.

With great personal sacrifice, the parents invested tremendous time and
money in therapy with Nechemya Weberman. Each session lasted a
minimum of three hours at a cost of $150 an hour. At one point they were
required to pay $7,000 in advance to the principal, to guarantee that she
remain in therapy.

Unfortunately they trusted both the school and Mr. Weberman. When they
did have questions or concerns, they were intimidated and threatened. At
one point Mr. Weberman took her alone on a 12 hour trip upstate – when
the mother asked about hilchos yichud he responded in great anger.
Rather than calming her, he threatened to stop treatment if she wouldn’t
apologize in writing.
Finally, after two years of embarrassment and pain at school, the victim
was switched to another school. The new school assigned her to a
therapist. Throughout the sessions the therapist discovered what had
occurred with Mr. Weberman over the past few years.

The law in NY State requires that a therapist report any abuse that
happens to a child whether or not the parents agree. Thus it was a shock
when the parents of the victim were called down to the police station and
informed of what happened.

Those unfamiliar with how the DA’s office works blamed the parents for
the charges and publicity, yet they themselves had no control over the
process. Initially the parents did not believe the story and the police
refused to allow the girl back home. For three weeks the girl was placed in
another home. With time and investigation it became clear that the painful
stories were true. Numerous other victims have come forward to share
their stories as well.

The victim’s family wanted to keep the story quiet in order to preserve the
dignity of the Weberman family, yet the Weberman’s in trying to deny the
charges has made this public and widespread. The defendant, who is and
aggressor according to Jewish law, an aggressor, is now playing the role
of a victim.

As religious people, the victim’s family would like to handle this according
to the Torah. They have informed the Rabbis and advocates that they are
ready and willing to go to any Rabbinical Court to uncover the truth and
follow their guidance.

As a community, we hope you can share in their pain and do what needs
to be done to keep our kehilla safe.
The Satmar are the Jews with the fur trimmed hats and long frock coats. The
reason they dress the way they do has nothing to do with the Bible, Talmud, Shulchan
Aruch or any other holy book. When the Satmar were in Hungry the nobility there
provided them with some degree of protection against the blood thirsty, Jew hating,
peasantry so they emulated their dress. The victim of this crime is a former cult member
who was born into this throwback to when the Jews lived in ghettos. Satmar have
created their own ghettos. They should be locked in at night, as they did in the ghettos
of Europe. They hate not only the Christian world but have ill will towards Jews who are
not part of the cult. Unlike the Chabad they have no outreach programs other than
hustlers like Weberman who reach out into people’s wallets.


Although the Satmar’s practice the religion of Biblical times a lot of their thinking
is based on the Talmud, rather than the Old Testament. The orthodox believe the
Talmud was given to Moses in Biblical times despite the fact that it deals with situations
in much later times. It is often called the “the oral” law. So we are talking about Diaspora
religious philosophy that includes such diverse commandments such as don’t return to
Israel in masse until the Messiah leads you back or at least pays for your ticket on El-Al.
As in other cults ex-cult members are threatened by the other Satbots for leaving the
cult. They believe that Israel is an abomination and must vanish before the Moshioch
will come. The Satmar believe the Nazis were messengers of God whose role was to
punish Jews from straying from their religion. Their revenge on the Nazis is to bring
many more Jews into the world. Everything is bashert with them, the Yiddish word for
“destined” so those men, women and children killed in the Holocaust were destined by
God to die. They inbreed and are subject to genetic disease and a stagnant genetic
pool. They rarely amount to more than a hill of hummus in American society but the do
know how to make money and run big retail operations selling electronic equipment or
issuing hekshers – a certificate that food is Glatt Kosher. They do this for FAIRWAY
MARKETS in New York City. Because they maintain major religious differences with
Sephardic Jews they are some of the Whitest, most racist Jews in the world. It is this
European Christian genetic heritage that causes them to make Judaism into a
Messianic religion like Christianity. Satmar is my genetic heritage on my father’s side
and Nechemya Weberman is my second cousin. So is William Mordechai Weberman:

The story the press overlooked or thought that would be prejudicial is that the
accused sexual predator Nechemya is also a self-hating anti-Zionist Jew with ties to an
organization dedicated to the destruction of the State of Israel known as Neturei Karta
or Guardians of the Wall. Just as Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) spawned the
Weather Underground, the Satmar spawned Neturei Karta. The only walls these
Guardians should be guarding are on the inside of mental institutions as they want to
destroy Israel to hasten the coming of the Messiah. As a member of the Weberman
family I know for a fact that Nechemya is tied in politically with Rabbi Mordechai
Weberman. My cousin davens (prays) at a Neturei Karta “Malachim” shul run by my
cousin Rabbi Mordechai Weberman and his father Meyer Weberman. Although he
denies it when he speaks with other members of my family, Mordechai met with the
Iranian Hitler Ahmadinejad and with members of the British National Front.



The reason that my cousin had such widespread support was because he is a
Weberman, and the Weberman family founded the Satmar Sect in the Williamsburg
section of Brooklyn. Nechemya Weberman is the nephew of Rabbi Meir (Myron)
Weberman who heads the Hasidic group, The Malachim (the angels). This splinter
group was involved in kidnapping Lubavitchka rabbinical scholars and cutting off their
beards and pais (sidelocks). Meir’s son Mordechai (William) Weberman (above at a
Zionism Equals Racism demonstration in Dafur) is also a Malach and was one of the
maggots who went to Teheran’s holocaust revisionist conference at the invitation
of Iranian President Mahhmoud Ahmadinejad. Nechemya approved of his cousin’s
travels despite the fact the Satmar and the Edah Hacharedis condemned them.
Mordechai is a leader of Neturei Karta a small group of psychopaths determined to help
anyone who will destroy Israel and its inhabitants. Nechemya and Mordechai want to
see Israel destroyed by a nuclear Iran because they believe it will hasten the coming of
the Messiah. These maggots want to see another Holocaust. Their Israeli branch
desecrated a monument to the Holocaust with slogans like
“The Zionists wanted the Holocaust!”; “If Hitler hadn’t
existed, the Zionists would have invented him”; and
“Persecuting Jews! You declared war on Hitler in the name
of the Jewish people. You brought about the Shoah!” One
of the messages was signed: “World ultra-Orthodox
Jewry.” These so called “True Torah Jews” deny that six
million Jews were systematically murdered during the Nazi Holocaust or that gas
chambers existed. Here is what the vermin say:

Firstly, the facts. There is no doubt what so ever, that during World War 2
there developed a terrible and catastrophic policy and action of genocide
perpetrated by Nazi Germany against the Jewish People, confirmed by
innumerable eye witness survivors and fully documented again and again.
I personally was spared the worst effects of the War because I was living
in England which thankfully was not occupied by Nazi Germany. However,
I and many many others lost countless friends and relatives who perished
under the Nazi rule by intentional murder and genocide. Three million
Jews in Poland, more than half a million in Hungary, many tens or
hundreds of thousands in Russia, Slovakia, France, Belgium, Holland and
more. The figure of six million is regularly quoted. One may wish to
dispute this actual figure, but the crime was just as dreadful whether the
millions (and there were millions) of victims numbered six million, five
million or four million. The method of murder is also irrelevant, whether it
was by gas chamber (and there were eye witnesses to this), firing squads
or whatever. The evil was the same. It would be a terrible affront to the
memory of those who perished to belittle the guilt of the crime in any way.

Meir, Mordechai, Nechemya and Alan Jules Weberman (A. J. Weberman)
descend from the family patriarch, Moshe Weberman. Moshe Weberman was the son of
a Chasidic Rabbi of Tisa Lik, Szatmar (Satmar) Hungary who immigrated to the United
States in 1885. Moshe was an ordained practitioner of ritual circumcision. Moshe was
also a practitioner of the ancient Jewish procedure of metzitzah b’peh, in which an adult
male, usually the circumciser, places his mouth directly on the wound created by the
removal of the infant’s foreskin to suck away the blood. He was also a practitioner of
ritual animal slaughter, a Kosher Butcher. Finally he was
proprietor of a kosher deli and delicatessen factory on Rivington
Street in the Lower East Side. Moshe Weberman was a generous
man when it came to helping other Jews. If a Jew could not afford
to cater a Bar Mitzvah or Bris, my great great grandfather gave
them kosher food for free. He seemed like a nice guy but was opposed to any form of
secular education, fearing a negative influence on religious observances.

Moshe Weberman’s son, Ben Zion Weberman, was born in the Lower East Side
in 1896. Despite the fact that Moshe Weberman opposed secular education Ben Zion
Weberman was privately tutored. Following the completion of his high school diploma,
he studied at City College, NYU, and Fordham Law School. At Fordham, he was
allowed to make up exams scheduled for Jewish holidays. His father did not support
Ben Zion's law studies. To show his objection to his son's law studies,
Moshe Weberman did not speak to his son for three months. Moshe was a full of kosher
phony baloney.

In 1917, while in law school, Ben Zion Weberman became involved in the
establishment of Yeshiva Torah Vodaas, located in Williamsburgh. The yeshiva was
founded by Ben Zion's brother-in-law, Binyomin Wilhelm (b. 1886). Several yeshivas
had already existed in the Lower East Side; this, however, was the first yeshiva
in Brooklyn. Moshe Weberman (Wilhelm's father-in-law) was opposed to the effort,
which was to incorporate secular studies. "A yeshiva should be all holy," he averred.
Moshe wanted to be sure every Jewish kid sent to Yeshiva could not escape to the
secular world. The founding of the yeshiva was successful, however, opening with a
festive procession.

Ben Zion Weberman spent the rest of his life bringing the hatred of Zionism to
orthodox Jews. He was an activist in the Williamsburg branch of Young Israel and as
stated a founder of Yeshiva Torah Vodaas and Bais Yaacov Seminary for Girls. He left
each of these institutions (Young Israel in the 1920s; the other institutions in the 30s)
following heated disputes over religious principles and practice as nobody was religious
enough for Ben Zion Weberman, as we shall see - not even the Satmar Rebbe.
President of the Williamsburg branch of Young Israel in 1925, he left the organization
because of their refusal to abandon mixed dancing (between men and women, which he
viewed as counter to the Torah). He left Bais Yaacov school for girls, which he founded,
because of the introduction of Torah studies, which he considered as not being in
accordance with Orthodox tradition (limiting Torah study to males only). He opposed
ALL secular studies other than reading, writing, and arithmetic, which he deemed
necessary and unobjectionable. Questioned about his own secular education, Ben Zion
Weberman responded:

I'm like Yisro (Jethro). Yisro says “Now I know.” The Talmud
explains, “He tried out all the idol worship in the world and
now he knows what's right”

Ben Zion was a hypocrite like his father. At the

same time that Moshe Weberman immigrated to New
York Yaakov Horowitz left Hungary and settled in New
York. Yaakov Horowitz, together with his four sons and
his son-in-law, Yitzhak Margareten, established what
became the world-famous Horowitz-Margareten Matzoh Bakers. Ben Zion Weberman
married Yittel (Julia) Horowitz in 1920. Their youngest son is Rabbi Pinchas Aaron
Weberman, who is now the Chaplin for the ATF, and a Zionist . His sons own a catering
business in the Weberman tradition that has been hurt by the sex scandal. Ben Zion
Weberman graduated from law school in 1921 and opened a practice on the Lower East
Side. His clientele were members of the Jewish community in the Lower East
Side, Williamsburg, and the Torah Vodaas yeshiva community crowd. Soon Ben Zion
Weberman moved to Williamsburg, and joined his brother-in-law Binyomin Wilhelm. He
continued working on the executive committee of Yeshiva Torah Vodaas, becoming the
director of secular education. Up until the late 1930s, when Ben Zion Weberman moved
away from Williamsburg (to the Bronx and later to Crown Heights), he devoted most of
his time and energy to the yeshiva.

Ben Zion's views that the other Jews weren’t frum (religious) enough and
critiques of the way they choose to practice Judaism rankled the New York Orthodox
Jewish community, itself in an emergent stage prior to the Second World War.
Opposition from within the Orthodox community led to social ostracism, decline of his
law practice, and according to one account, death threats. Ben Zion never lifted a finger
to fight the Nazis as Jews like him believed the Nazis were servants of God carrying out
his will. Opposing the existence of the State of Israel left the Jews at the mercy of Nazis,
Islamists and other Jew killers and was tantamount to suicide. Many of the twisted ideas
advocated by Ben Zion Weberman became widely accepted following the postwar influx
from East Europe and the post-1960 Orthodox shift to the "right", but he never regained
the socially prominent position he had held in the 1920s and early 30s.

In the 1920s, a meshugana Rabbi with delusions of grandeur arrived in New York
by the name of Rabbi Chaim Avraham Ber Hacohen Levine (d. 1938). An immigrant
from Ilya, White Russia, Levine was known as the Malach (“Angel”). The Malach
established himself as Rabbi of a synagogue in the Bronx. In White Russia, the Malach
had been a follower of the Zemach Zedek and the appointed tutor for the latter's
grandson, Yosef Yitzchok (he became sixth Lubavicher Rabbi, in Crown Heights,
Brooklyn). However, the Malach left this duty, reportedly because of dissatisfaction over
his pupil's interest in secular works. In the aftermath of this parting, the Malach was
expelled from Chabad.

The Malach attracted a small following in the Bronx,

coming to him from the Lower East Side, Williamsburg,
and more distant locations, seeking learning and spiritual
advice. Moshe, Ben Zion and Ben Zion's sons Meir
Weberman and Judah Weberman (seen on the left)
became followers of the Malach and soon formed the
Malachim - the precursor to the Israel-hating Neturei Karta.
The Malach was an impressive mystical figure:
Rabbi Mendelowitz of Torah Vodaas, although a believer
in secular education (unlike the Malach) encouraged groups of his yeshiva students to
visit the Malach, along with other European Jewish luminaries who visited or came to
reside in New York City. Ben Zion's son Meir Weberman recalls the Malach as a person
with enormous charisma. Meir Weberman recounted,

Grandfather Moshe Weberman told my father, "I’ve found someone who

must be seen.” That was the Malach. Everyone began going to him.
Especially we young boys. We began changing our way of life. I recall one
time as a small boy, I said to my father, "Tell the rabbi to bless me." He
took me between his holy knees, placed his hands on my head, and
blessed me. Our outlook on life changed drastically, but imperceptibly. I
wouldn't say day after day; I'd month after month. After a period of six
months I'd look back and wouldn't recognize myself. The truth of the
matter is that we used to go once a week until Mendlowitz (who wore pais
and tstis) stopped the thing, every Tuesday.

The Malach taught us how to pray, how to pour forth the heart to the Holy
One. His conversations led us to understand that the purpose of the world
was only by praying properly, by performing the laws the way they should
we would reach our eventual goal. He did tell us which books to
learn: Likutei Torah, Derekh Mizvoseha. I asked him once why to some he
tells one way, with others differently. He told us, "In a stable, every horse
has its own training." He told me one time, "I can tell by your appearance if
you have studied today or not.” My father told me he felt he was
a ha’ara (ray) of Mashiach Zidkenu (Messiah).

The people at that time accused Rabbi Levine of farkishefen (ensorcelling

- bewitching) the young men. And they were right, but not in the sense
they meant it. We changed totally. There was substance there. It was like
food and drink. You can have someone explain a difficult Maimonides,
help me out with that, but that doesn't mean he's my Rabbi. We had
decided at the time as a group that we would cleave to Rabbi Levine, that
we would accept no other person as a Rabbi. That's what we decided. The
closest example I can give you is Ben Kalba Savua, who went in hungry
as a dog, and came out satiated. His way of service was totally different
from people we knew at the time. One time, during a weekday, he
stood shmone esrei (the standing prayer) for two hours.

The followers of the Malach were not numerous (less than a

hundred, including several converts); the movement,
however, is of negative historical significance, being the very
first known instance of an anti-Zionist Chassidic movement
developing on American soil. The sick branch of the
Weberman family, followers, their children, and grandchildren
still gather on Sabbaths and Jewish holidays at the Nesivos
Olum Synagogue in Brooklyn (AKA the Malachim Shul),
currently led by Ben Zion's son Rabbi Meir Weberman. But
cousin Meyer is ill and so he has Mordechai William Weberman, a Nazi collaborator,
running the shul where Jews pray for the destruction of Israel three times a day. Willy
Weberman (he gives me the Willies) is not an ordained Rabbi – he is a self-ordained
Rabbi without simichas - he is as much of a Rabbi as I am an Eskimo.

By the 1930s a rift had developed between the Malach and Rabbi Mendelowitz.
A group of Torah Vodaas students, including Meir and Judah Weberman (encouraged
by their father, and then in their early teens), had been strongly influenced by
the Malach. They began to change their dress, growing long sidelocks, and wearing
their talis katan (ritual fringed garment) on top of their shirts, and displaying
the tsitsis (fringes) outside of their garments. This was normal and expected practice
among many Orthodox Jews in East Europe and Russia, but not at that period in New
York. The Webermans were instrumental in convincing Jews to wear the clothing of
Polish nobility as they did in the ghettos of Poland as a tribute to the nobility that
protected them from the bloodthirsty Polish peasants.
Rabbi Mendelowitz (seen on left) was concerned that the Old
World dress would alienate the majority of students and school
supporters. He had been hoping to create a New World version of
Orthodoxy which blended Torah and worldly ways, in accordance with
the teaching of Rabbi Hirsh of Germany. Encouraged by the Malach, who
now saw Mendelowitz as having dangerous, heretical views, a group
of Torah Vodaas students began to openly defy their principal. Faced
with a potential rebellion, Rabbi Mendelowitz began seeking external support.
Mendelowitz drafted letters of inquiry to the greatest of the European Rabbis, dealing
with the variety of topics under dispute between his New World Orthodoxy and the
Malach's followers' attempt to reinstitute Old World Orthodoxy. This included such
questions as whether, in a non-Jewish environment, the talis katan and tsitsis should be
worn openly or "modestly"; if secular studies are appropriately taught within a yeshiva;
and if students could be punished for adopting religious practices that were "excessive",
and "arrogant".

In 1936, having received support for his views from at least some of the
respondents, Rabbi Mendelowitz decided to have a group of fanatical students with a
ghetto mentality expelled from the yeshiva, including Ben Zion's two sons, Meir and
Judah Weberman.[29] Family members recall an epic confrontation between
Mendelowitz and Ben Zion Weberman. Ben Zion had confronted Rebbe Mendelowitz,
asking him how he could oppose the boys way of dress when he wore pais (side locks)
and a long beard himself. Pinchas Aaron, who was five years old at the time, tells the
story as follows:

We had a two story apartment. We three little ones were supposed to be

sleeping, but there was a lot of noise coming from downstairs. So I
sneaked down the staircase and peeked into the living room. I saw Rabbi
Mendelovich standing up and my father and him yelling at each other. I
saw Mendelovich getting a hold of his beard, [saying] "Here, you can have
my beard!" The impression is very clear in my mind.

For Ben Zion Weberman, one of the founders of the yeshiva, the expulsion of his
children was a painful blow, personally and socially. His neighbors began to alienate
him. His close relatives encouraged his wife to divorce him, and his daughter to leave
her father. His clients deserted him and his legal practice foundered. There were
reportedly death threats. For a time, he thought of taking up another occupation, or
migrating to Palestine, but the Malach dissuaded him from doing so. His view that the
Nazis were instruments of God also didn’t endear him to the Jewish community.

In 1940 Ben Zion Weberman moved to the Bronx, along with his family, hoping to
rebuild his business and community life. His sons, then well into their teens, lived at the
Malachim yeshiva in Williamsburg, attempting to hold their own against Torah Vodaas
and its supporters.

While Ben Zion Weberman was a follower of the Malach and supported his sons
in their acceptance of the Malach as their rabbi, Ben Zion Weberman dressed in a short,
double-breasted jacket and "derby". He did not wear long sidelocks; he shaved his
beard, and wore a small goatee. He immersed himself in the Talmud, rising at 2
AM prior to his law practice. He did not study Chabad.

Despite this anomaly Ben Zion Weberman was intensely religious and did not
hesitate to criticize Jewish individuals and organizations, members and rabbis alike,
when he considered them to be mistaken--in either ideology or morals, and was often at
odds with other members of the Orthodox Jewish community in New York. He pointed
to the Biblical example of Pinchas, who took the lives of adulterers by his own hand,
encouraging his progeny to be zealots in God's service. The fiercest rhetoric was
reserved for Zionism. Because of his objections to Zionism, Ben Zion Weberman never
visited Israel.


Nechemya Weberman was the driver for Aron and Zalman Teitelbaum’s late
father Grand Rebbe Moses Teitelbaum the son of Joel Teitelbaum, the first Satmar
Decrepit Rebbe. In 1928 Joel Teitelbaum was a Rabbi at Satu Mare, Hungry. During the
holocaust in 1944, he was saved in the rescue train arranged through Rudolph Kastner,
and instead of going to the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp he reached Palestine.
Zionism saved the life of the anti-Zionist Teitelbaum. The Nazis wished there were more
Jews around like Kastner, a Zionist who worked with the Jewish Agency Rescue
Committee in Budapest. Kastner signed a secret pact with Adolf Eichmann to “settle the
Jewish question” in Hungary. The pact sealed the fate of 800,000 Jews. The agreement
entailed the saving of six hundred prominent Jews on the condition that silence was
maintained about the fate of Hungarian Jewry. In 1947 Ben-Zion Weberman was the
immigration attorney who did the paperwork to bring Rabbi Teitelbaum to
America. Teitelbaum settled in Brooklyn, New York and in 1953 became rabbi of the
Neturei Karta community in Jerusalem although he remained in New York and only
visited Israel every few years. Later his ties with the Neturei Karta weakened but his
book Vayoel Moshe is still extensively quoted:

Everyone ignores the fact that it has been these Zionist groups that have
attracted the Jewish people and have violated the Oath against
establishing a Jewish entity before the arrival of the Messiah. It is because
of the Zionists that six million Jews were killed. The fact is that this is the
bitter punishment stipulated in the Talmud that results in the payment of a
spiritual and physical debt from the Jewish People...if we place all the
immodesty and promiscuity of the generation and the many sins of the
world on one side of the scale, and the Zionist state on the other side of
the scale by itself, it would outweigh them all. Zionism is the greatest form
of spiritual impurity in the entire world. They are polluting the entire world.
They have polluted the Jewish people with their heresy, Heaven help us. It
is no surprise why God's anger comes down from heaven. It is necessary
to repent and escape from them more than from a lion who is chasing a
person to kill him. It has been explained that before the coming of the
Messiah this regime will come to an end, as Messiah cannot come any
other way, since the Zionist state holds up the redemption of the world.
We need God's mercies that divine intervention should bring about the
end of the state. May God have mercy on us all.

For a time, Ben Zion and Joel maintained good relations, but a disagreement
soon ensued. The Satmar Rabbi agreed to give a talk at Yeshiva Torah Vodaas, at the
invitation of Rabbi Mendelowitz. Ben Zion Weberman considered Mendelowitz to be
a maskil (a follower of the Enlightenment), and castigated the Satmar Rabbi for
accepting the invitation. A loud argument reportedly ensued in the rabbi's office, and
Ben Zion Weberman was asked to leave.

The deaths of the Malach (1938) and Mendelowitz (1948) passed with little
notice, except by their close cult followers. Following the war, there was a noticeable
ideological shift away from the assimilationist Hirshian views; and toward an exclusionist
Orthodoxy derivative and characteristic of the ghettos of East Europe. Chassidic
dynasties and Lithuanian yeshivas were transplanted to the U.S., and began to undergo
a period of vigorous growth, particularly in New York. Ben Zion Weberman moved yet
again in 1950, this time to Crown Heights, following his daughter and son-in-law. By this
time, Chassidic rabbis had become well established throughout Brooklyn,
and Torah Vodaas was no longer the only, or even the most important yeshiva. The
masses of new Jewish immigrants knew nothing of the expulsion of the boys from
Torah Vodaas, and Ben Zion Weberman was able to gradually rebuild neighborly and
family relations. He rebuilt his law practice, but he never became rich. Much of his law
fees were given away as charity, or as loans that were never repaid. I will give him this
much; he was a spiritualist, not a materialist.

Ben Zion Weberman kept up his self-hating ways well into his later years, deeply
critical of Zionism, even after some form of the movement had been embraced the
Orthodox Jewish community (as in the case of the Agudah, which back faced from its
earlier position opposing Zionism). He championed the right of the Malachim yeshiva,
headed by his son Meir Weberman, to engage in purely religious education, and to
exclude secular education altogether. The battle was waged up to the State Supreme
Court level. The case was lost (1952), but the yeshiva has not compromised its stance
of keeping Jews ignorant. This divorce and court case helped drive my cousin William
Mordechai Weberman over the edge. When I met him at my Grandfather Herman
Weberman’s place at 474 Brooklyn Avenue and I asked him what he wanted to be when
he grew up he replied “A gangster.” But Mordechai out did any gangster when it came
to killing as he aids and abets those who want to commit genocide against the Jews. As
for Ben Zion – he wouldn’t eat at my Bar Mitzvah because it was not kosher enough for
him. The case (that Rabbi Willy denies exists and that he claims I made up) that helped
turn Mordechai into a self-hating, Jew hating, mental case can be found in the appendix
of this document.

Ben Zion Weberman lived long enough to see the widespread contagion of many
of the Satmar ideas he had espoused a half century prior. Black fur trimmed hats, long
black coats, hair covering by women, arranged marriages, abandonment of mixed
dancing, the adoption of various humras (strict observances), advanced Torah study,
rejection of higher education, religious separatism, and opposition to Zionism had
now become increasingly common among self-hating Satmar Jews.[39]

As stated they spawned the American branch of Neturei Karta, a group that
supported the massacre of Jews and others in Mumbai. The Satmar has throughout
many years driven a campaign in Yemen with the purpose of persuading Yemeni,
Sephardic Jews to immigrate to the United States, and not Israel. When they arrive in
the community of Monroe, New York their children are taken away from them and put in
custody of the Satmar and must give up their Sephardic ways. They have no love of
Jews other than other Satmar. Their spokesman is Rabbi Mayer Schiller, who is aligned
with numerous Nazis and Neo-Nazis. Now everyone realizes how off the wall they are
after they had a benefit for a child molester. The poster that they put out advertising the
benefit has anti-Israeli overtones as rockets are being fired into Israel by its enemies.


All praise to Allah my parents were not Satmar and were pro-Israel and sent me
there in 1959. I was the president of the local chapter a liberal Zionist group, Young
Judea. There are many Weberman’s living in Israel and my cousin Pinchus Weberman
is a pro-Israel Rabbi in Miami. 2 My grandfather, Herman Weberman, was a Spanish-
American war veteran. He was married to Lena Weberman and had two sons, Danny
“Dudy” Weberman, Ezra Weberman, my father, and a daughter Blossom Weberman,
who died of cancer when I was six. Blossom never got married and lived at home with
Herman and Lena until her tragic death. She was good people and turned me on to the
song, Old Man River. Danny Weberman fought in World War I and World War II. He
was the original Sad Sack in the movies, was the star of the TV Series for Doctor
Posner’s Shoes (he never invited me to the studio to sit with the rest of the kids
because it involved travelling on the Sabbath) he produced a mystery series on NBC
entitled Ellery Queen and also produced the TV version of the Macy’s thanksgiving day
parade. He gave me a swastika armband covered with blood. He had killed a Nazi. This
guy was a fucking mench but he never got married because the women he introduced
to his parents were not religious enough for them. He slept on a cot in my grandparent’s
dining room. My father spent at lot of time at his parents’ house which upset my mother.
My father hated my maternal grandmother and grandfather because they were not
religious enough and would not associate with them. This was a sick freakin’ family. Of
course Grandpa Herman hated me because I could not read Hebrew and had skinny
arms. He abused me for this, made me cry, but I lived through it. Herman got all upset
when men and women were first allowed to swim together in Jerusalem in the late
1950’s but he never visited Israel so what was it his business? The Webermans often
have a holier than thou mentality and was dysfunctional and definitely exhibited
pathology but the Neturei Karta side of the Weberman family are lowest scum on earth
as they collaborate with the Nazis and Islamist terrorists to kill Jews. You can say the
messy divorce, the court case, turned Mordechai Weberman into a mental basket case
but there is also a component of evil there. Other members of Neturei Karta have
histories of mental disorders and acted out evil scenarios. One member tied his mother
up and tortured her for several days. When confronted with this other NK members
didn’t not deny that it happened but said it was a luchen hora – a sin because Jews are
not suppose to degrade other Jews. How did Neturi Krackpot come about?


In 1937 Rabbis Amram Blau and Aharon Katzenelbogen,

Hungarian Jews who had moved to Jerusalem to study Torah
founded Neturei Karta. Neturei Karta, which means Guardians of
the City (Jerusalem) in Aramaic, started out as an umbrella group
of Torah scholars living in Safat who moved to Meah Shearim in
the Old City because of natural disasters and Muslim attacks. In
order to survive in a hostile environment, Neturei Karta members
transformed itself into a group of fervently Orthodox Jews who opposed Zionism
ostensibly on theological grounds. Neturei Karta cites this passage from the Bible to
justify its belief that Israel should not exist:

It will be that when all these things come upon you, the blessing and the
curse that I have presented to you, then you will reflect upon it among all
the nations where HaShem your God has scattered you. And you will
return to HaShem your God and you will obey His voice according to
everything I have commanded you today, you and your children with all
your heart and with all your soul. And HaShem your God will bring back
your remnants and have mercy on you, and He will gather you in from all
the peoples to which HaShem your God has scattered you. If your
dispersed will be at the ends of the heavens from there HaShem your God
will gather you and from there He will take you. And HaShem your God
will bring you to the land your fathers inhabited and you shall inhabit
it, and He will be good to you and you will increase even more than your
fathers. HaShem your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your
offspring to love HaShem your God with all your heart and with all your
soul that you may live. HaShem your God will place these curses upon
your enemies and upon your haters who pursued you. And you will return
and listen to the voice of HaShem and you will do all His commandments
which I have commanded you today. (Deuteronomy 30)

What this means to me is that the God of the Jews will gather up every Hebrew
exile from the most remote corners of the earth and bring them to the land of Israel.
Nowhere does this passage forbid the establishment of the Zionist state, but it is a
promise to every exile to bring them back to the “Promised Land.” But the Neturei Karta
theologians’ exegesis proved most expedient, as it made them much less of a threat to
the Muslim population and insured their safety to a point. Ironically, the founders of
Neturei Karta were descendants of the students of the Vilna Gaon, the Lithuanian anti-
Haredi 3 (Those Who Fear God” – the ultra-Orthodox Jews who have beards, sidecurls,
and special dress) who regarded Hassidism as heresy. In accordance with the Vilna
Gaon's wishes, three groups of his disciples and their families, numbering over 500,
immigrated to Palestine between 1808 and 1812. This immigration is considered to be
the beginning of the modern settlement of Israel.

Neturei Karta also cites the Talmud (Tractate Kesubos 111a or Ketuvot 111a) , 4 which
teaches that that god foreswore Jews with three oaths –

One: that Jews are not to go up en mass to the Land of Israel.

Two: that Jews are forbidden to take up arms against any nation.

Three, we should not attempt to bring about the redemption before its proper time.

In order to better understand these Jews I had its scholar’s translate the Tractate,

(1) the Jewish people must not ascend from the nations of the Exile to
the Land of Israel, forcibly, en masse;

(2) the Jewish people must not rebel against the nations of the Exile;
(3) the nations of the Exile must not overly persecute the Jewish people

However, in a messianic reference to the future ingathering of the Jewish people

to, and the resurrection of a sovereign Jewish nation-state in, the Land of Palestine, the
Midrash (a method of exegesis) of a Biblical text warns that if the gentile nations should
overly persecute the Jewish people in violation of the Three Oaths, then "they cause the
End of Days to come prematurely." (Shir HaShirim Rabba, 2: [7]1)

For some, the holocaust might qualify as “over persecution” but not for these Jews.

As stated many of Neturei Karta leaders have evidenced bizarre behavior, as

one must have a degree of mental illness to advocate what is ultimately one’s own
extermination. When Rabbi Amram Blau urged Orthodox females to commit suicide
rather than accept conscription in the IDF some began to wonder about his sanity. Ruth
Ben David who was born in Calais, France, of Catholic parents brought Rabbi Blau’s
psychosis in the public eye. Ruth was an actress who married during the war and had a
son, then got divorced and entered the French Resistance. In 1951 she and her son
converted to Judaism. After her son went to study in Israel she secretly visited Hebron,
which was part of Jordan, a daring journey for a Jew at that time. In 1961 it was
arranged that Ruth Ben David would marry the Rabbi Amram Blau. By this time he was
65 years old, was widowed and had ten children, the majority already married and she
was 45. Why did he choose her for a bride? In the 1950s, during one of the anti-Israeli
demonstrations, Blau suffered a blow to his testicles that rendered him sterile. There is
a biblical commandment that forbids a man with permanent damage to his genitals to
marry a daughter of Israel, but marriage to a convert is permissible. During a very long
period, many obstacles prevented this marriage: such a union, with one of the leaders
of the Hasidic community, was indeed startling for the Jews of Meah Shearim who did
not swallow the broken testicles story. 5 A beautiful French convert to Judaism who had
been an actress and a resistance fighter against the Nazis marrying a decrepit old Jew?
Blau's two grown sons opposed the match. They argued that such a marriage - to a
foreigner who was also an actress - was inappropriate for a public figure. The couple
was married in 1964. They endured stonings and were forced to take refuge in the city
of B’nai Berak for a year until tempers cooled. Ruth Blau continued to act as her own
independent wing of Neturei Karta even after her husband died in 1974.

If Zionism is the greatest sin on earth because it is preventing the return on the
Messiah than the Jewish illegitimate State of Israel must be wiped off the map. But
some Jews must be saved, namely the non-Zionists. Neturei Karta believes it has
immunity from jihadi attacks. This was generally the case however residents of Meah
Shearim were saved in March 2001 from a huge explosion from a bomb planted in a
parked car that was dismantled before it could explode. This was the fourth such
incident in two months. The first bomb was neutralized on Shivtei Yisroel Street, the
second on Shomrei Emunim Street. The third bomb, placed in a car in the Beis Yisroel
neighborhood, actually exploded, but unfortunately there were no casualties. Neturei
Karta leader Rabbi Yisrael Meir Hirsch explained, "That was Hamas. I called up then
Hamas political leader Dr. Abdel Aziz Rantisi after it happened. He said it was a terrible
sin, a mistake. He said that he didn't mean to do this to the Jews. We have contact with
Hamas. Although lately, there doesn't seem to be anybody in charge! If I had been alive
at the time, I would have gone to Hitler. He got enraged when the Zionist leaders called
for a boycott of him…This boycott hurt Germany like a fly attacking an elephant – but it
brought calamity upon the Jews of Europe. At a time when America and England were
at peace with the mad-dog Hitler, the Zionist ‘statesmen’ forsook the only plausible
method of political amenability; and with their boycott incensed the leader of Germany
to a frenzy. He banged on the table and said, 'I'll show those Jews!' What if we had tried
to appease him, instead? The Neturei Karta run paid advertisements in Nazi
publications denouncing Zionism in the belief that if the Nazis come to power again they
will be spared.

After her husband died Ruth Blau cultivated a friendship with the Ayatollah
Khomeni. When four rabbis from Neturei Karta visited Iran in the late 1980’s some of
them said that the thirteen Jews on trial there for espionage had been duped by the
Zionist entity, which tantamount to saying that they were guilty. Rabbi Yisrael Weiss, the
head of the delegation, told Yusef Hamadani-Cohen, the leader of Iran’s 30,000-strong
Jewish community, the thirteen suspects had been “tricked” by the Zionist entity into
collecting sensitive information on Iran. “Zionism is separate from the Jewish faith, and
whoever becomes involved in Zionism ends up the loser,” Rabbi Weiss said.

Neturei Karta leader Rabbi Moshe Hirsch stated. "We say Iran is an autonomous
state; why shouldn't they be a nuclear power? Why is it permissible for France and not
for them?" Hirsch was born in New York’s Lower East Side but has lived in Israel for
most of his sixty years calls himself a Jewish Palestinian and writes Palestine as his
country of residence. He was designated a cabinet minister and Yassir Arafat’s advisor
on Jewish affairs when Arafat arrived in the West Bank city of Jericho in 1994 after
Arafat signed interim peace accords with Israel. Hirsch, now in his seventies, wears a
glass eye, blue like his good one. About ten years ago, a Kahanist attacked him after he
left morning prayers. Rabbi Cohn was asked about an upcoming Holocaust Revisionist
Conference that was being planned by the Government of Iran, “I don't find it offensive
at all. If people want to debate the details of the Holocaust, they're welcome to. We
happen to know. We were involved.” In December 2006 the Iranian Government held
the conference in Tehran.
In the Matter of the Application of Rose Auster, Petitioner, for a Writ of Habeas Corpus
to Determine the Custody of William M. Weberman, an Infant.

Myron Weberman, Respondent

Supreme Court of New York, Special Term, Kings County
198 Misc. 1055; 100 N.Y.S.2d 60; 1950 N.Y. Misc. LEXIS 2078
September 27, 1950

Order Affirmed February 5, 1951; See 102 N.Y.S.2d 418


Habeas corpus proceeding.


Constitutional law -- freedom of religion -- (1) in proceeding by mother

to acquire custody of boy from father, it appears that boy is being
educated in parochial school whose curriculum does not comply with
Education Law; regulation of curriculum of parochial school by
Legislature constitutional -- (2) if father does not comply with Education
Law by sending boy to school teaching curriculum required by
Education Law, custody of boy should be awarded to mother -- (3) court
will not pass upon wearing by child of long hair and of certain apparel,
which are religious matters.

1. In a habeas corpus proceeding by a mother seeking custody of her

son, who is of the age of seven and a half years and presently in the
custody of the father, it appears that the son is being educated in a
parochial school whose curriculum does not comply with the Education
Law. The curriculum of a parochial school may properly be regulated by
the Legislature of the State for the common good and the Legislature
may provide that certain studies plainly essential to good citizenship
must be taught. Such laws are [***2] constitutional.

2. If the father wishes to retain custody of his son he must comply with
the State Education Law (§ 3204, subds. 2, 3; § 3205) and provide a
systematic secular education in the eleven basic subjects required by
section 3204 and if he is not sent to a school which teaches the
subjects required by such law, the custody of the boy should be given
to the mother.
3. The court will not pass upon the wearing by the child of long hair or
the matter of his wearing apparel which are religious matters.

COUNSEL: George M. Aronwald for petitioner.

Benjamin Ben Zion Weberman for respondent.

JUDGES: Murphy, J.


OPINION: [*1055] [**61] There are some judicial determinations which

so closely touch the hearts and minds of those affected that they
assume extraordinary significance. Of such is this decision, for it deals
with delicate, sensitive and vital matters, arising out of the care and
education of a boy who is the product of a broken home.

The facts are these: The petitioner is the mother of William Mordecai
Weberman, now just over seven and a half years old. She seeks his
custody in this habeas corpus proceeding. Her former husband is the
respondent, as he [***3] now has custody of the boy. The petitioner
mother and the respondent father were [*1056] divorced in 1947, and
by an agreement entered into at that time the custody of a younger
child, their daughter Barbara, was given to the mother, and that of the
aforesaid boy to the father. Both the mother and the father have since
remarried. In March of this year this court awarded custody of the
daughter to the mother, but this action has little or no bearing on the
instant proceeding.

The petitioner mother here seeks custody of her son on the following

1. That the boy is now enrolled by his father in a Yeshiva (a Jewish

parochial school) which is not approved by the Board of Regents of the
State of New York or the board of education of the city of New York;

2. That the aforesaid Yeshiva is being maintained in violation of article

17 of the State Education Law and does not include in its curriculum
subjects required by said law in article 65;

3. That both the petitioner and the respondent husband are liable to
prosecution because of their failure to enroll their son in a school or
Yeshiva complying with said State Education Law;
4. That since October, 1949, the father has [***4] refused the mother all
rights of visitation and that the father wrongfully restrains and detains
the boy from seeing his mother and his sister Barbara;

5. That as a result of such alleged detention by the father the son does
not have the companionship of other children, which a normal child
should have;

6. That the father insists upon the enrollment of the subject son in the
aforesaid school because it is almost entirely devoted to the teaching of
religion and that he is fearful that said infant, if permitted to be in the
custody of his mother, would be brought up as an agnostic or a

[**62] 7. That the said infant is clothed by the father in a manner

different from that of normal American Orthodox Jewish children and
that he wears his hair long (Payas) and is therefore subject to ridicule
on the part of other children; and

8. That the father is fanatical in his religious beliefs and insists upon
bringing up the said infant in the same fashion.

On the basis of the foregoing charges the mother seeks an order of this
court giving her custody of the son. The father's answer substantially
denies all of the mother's aforesaid allegations.

Three separate hearings were [***5] held by the court in this matter, 316
pages of testimony were taken from nine witnesses, including the
petitioner and the respondent, two Rabbis and two officials [*1057] of
the city's board of education. Several exhibits were introduced into
evidence by each party. Because of the nature of this proceeding and
the delicate questions involved the court purposely allowed a wide
latitude to both sides in their presentations.

The most vital charge made by the mother is that which states that the
boy is not receiving the education required by the New York State
Education Law. That law requires that "each minor from seven to
sixteen years of age shall attend upon full time day instruction"
(Education Law, art. 65, § 3205, subd. 1). The subject boy does not
come within any of the exceptions of the aforesaid requirement. The
State Education Law also provides that the course of study shall
provide for instruction "in at least the eleven common school branches
of arithmetic, reading, spelling, writing, the English language,
geography, United States history, civics, hygiene, physical training and
the history of New York State" (Education Law, art. 65, § 3204, subd.

Subdivision [***6] 5 of the aforesaid section was added by the

Legislature of 1950 (L. 1950, ch. 135) and provides that a pupil may be
excused from the study of health and hygiene by the Board of Regents
if such study conflicts with the religion of his parents or guardian.

Section 3204 of the State Education Law also provides that a minor
may attend a public school or elsewhere but that the requirements of
the section, as quoted above, shall apply to such a minor irrespective of
the place of instruction. The section also provides that instruction may
be given only by a competent teacher and that English shall be the
language of instruction and the text books used shall be written in
English. Subdivision 2 of said section provides: "Instruction given to a
minor elsewhere than at a public school shall be at least substantially
equivalent to the instruction given to minors of like age and attainments
at the public schools of the city or district where the minor resides."

Counsel for the respondent, who, incidentally, is respondent's father,

conceded at the first hearing that of the eleven basic subjects required
to be taught to minors by the State Education Law, only arithmetic is
[**63] taught [***7] at the Yeshiva or school which the subject boy
attends. Arithmetic is taught to him only as he learns it from the study of
his religious subjects. That means that the lad has no systematic
education in reading, spelling, writing, the English language,
geography, United States history, civics, hygiene, physical training and
the history of the State of New York.

[*1058] The respondent claims that the Yeshiva which the boy attends
is a religious institution, that it does not come within the purview of the
State Education Law or the regulations of the board of education of the
city of New York; that the court has not the right to require the boy to
receive systematic secular education as that is forbidden by the laws of
the Jewish Orthodox religion. In this regard the father invokes the
provisions of the Constitution of the United States which secures to
every citizen of this country the right of religious worship and the
freedom to follow the dictates of his conscience in religious matters. As
to this constitutional question raised by the respondent father, the court
feels that the great weight of authority is to the effect that the State has
the power to legislate for the common [***8] good. In Pierce v. Society
of Sisters (268 U.S. 510, 69 L. Ed. 1070, 45 S. Ct. 571) the court
considered an Oregon law which provided that all children must go to
public schools and held that this interfered with the fundamental
freedom of parents in selecting the type of schools in which their
children should be educated. At page 534 the court stated: "No
question is raised concerning the power of the State reasonably to
regulate all schools, to inspect, supervise and examine them, their
teachers and pupils; to require that all children of proper age attend
some school, that teachers shall be of good moral character and
patriotic disposition, that certain studies plainly essential to good
citizenship must be taught, and that nothing be taught which is
manifestly inimical to the public welfare." (Italics added.) See, also, on
this constitutional question People v. Sandstrom (279 N. Y. 523, 18
N.E.2d 840); De Lease v. Nolan (185 App. Div. 82, 172 N.Y.S. 552);
and People ex rel. Vollmar v. Stanley (81 Col. 276, 255 P. 610).

It appears to be the plain duty of this court to enforce the provisions of

the State Education Law. This law was enacted to [***9] protect and to
strengthen the youth of our State, to insure the adequate preparation of
our children for useful and productive lives, and to set up standards of
education which the Legislature, in its wisdom, determined to be the
minimum for each minor from seven to sixteen years of age. When this
law was enacted, and from time to time since when it was amended,
the Legislature of our State was composed of members with various
religious backgrounds; some were Orthodox Jews, some were
Catholics, some were Protestants. Surely, they intentionally would
enact no law [**64] which would require a child to receive instruction
that would be offensive to his religious belief or the religious belief of his
parents; nor would this court condone such a practice were it
attempted, for we all personally and collectively [*1059] cherish the right
to practice our respective religions according to the dictates of our
consciences and according to our religious teachings.

I do not believe that it is my duty to determine in this case whether or

not the Orthodox Jewish law prohibits systematic secular education.
Both the petitioner mother and the respondent father are Orthodox
Jews, loyal [***10] to their faith and its precepts, as they understand
them to be. But they disagree on this matter, the mother contending
that the Orthodox Jewish law does not forbid systematic secular
education; the father claiming that it does. The mother produced two
Rabbis as witnesses, both of whom maintained that the Orthodox
Jewish law does not forbid systematic secular education. The father, on
the other hand, introduced into evidence quotations from profound
Jewish theologians which, he contends, prove unequivocally that
systematic secular education is prohibited by Orthodox Jewish law.

This phase of the matter, however, is an ecclesiastical question which

rightfully belongs to an ecclesiastical tribunal. In fact, the court
respectfully suggested that the parties submit this question to a
Rabbinical committee, composed of one Rabbi selected by the
petitioner, one by the respondent, and one by the court, all to be Rabbis
in the Orthodox Jewish faith. The proposal was rejected by the
respondent, which, of course, was his civil-law right. Parenthetically, it
might be said that both parties to this proceeding state that in the eyes
of Orthodox Jewish law it is sinful to have a matter of [***11] this kind
placed before a civil court.

If, in its wisdom, a Rabbinical committee were to decide that systematic

secular education is forbidden by Orthodox Jewish law, then a
presentation of such findings could be made to the State Legislature,
which, in turn, would undoubtedly give the matter serious consideration
in all its aspects. In fact the aforesaid 1950 amendment to the law with
respect to the teaching of health and hygiene was passed by the
Legislature and approved by the Governor at the instance of the
Christian Science Church. This court, however, must interpret and
enforce the law as it finds the law to be. Hence I reach the conclusion
that the boy, William Mordecai Weberman, must be sent to a school
where he will have the education in the subjects required by the State
Education Law. There are Yeshivas here in Brooklyn, according to the
testimony, which are conducted according to the tenets of Orthodox
Jewish law and which Yeshivas also comply with the requirements of
the State Education [*1060] Law and the rules and regulations of the
Board of Education of the City of New York. In fact, the respondent's
father was at one time an active officer of such a Yeshiva. [***12]

[**65] The testimony of the officials of the board of education of the city
of New York, including that of Herman Rosenthal, Esq., as well as the
reports of Archie H. Greenberg, acting division supervisor, and
Abraham Silverman, the attendance officer, regarding the Yeshiva
which the boy attends, leads the court to no other conclusion than that it
is not conducted as required by the State Education Law, however
sincere its religious training may be.
My decision, therefore, is that if the respondent father wishes to retain
custody of his son he must comply with the State Education Law and
provide for the boy the systematic secular education in the eleven basic
subjects required by said law. If this decision is not complied with within
two weeks after the signing of the order to be entered hereon, the
custody of the boy will be given to the mother. Meanwhile present
visitation arrangements of the boy with his mother shall be continued
until modified.

The court will not pass upon the wearing by the child of Payas or long
hair, or the matter of his wearing apparel. That is a matter which should
be decided by a Rabbinical committee. The court in all sincerity asks
both the mother [***13] and the father to relieve him of this perplexing
burden as it is delicate and theological in nature, and rightly belongs in
the realm of the theologians of the Orthodox Jewish faith.

Regarding the other allegations of the mother, they would seem to

require no determination because they will be resolved in the process of
fulfilling the decision reached above.

This case went all the way up to the Supreme Court.
