To the Survivors of Rabbi Mordechai Tendler

The following came from the Jewish Whistleblower Blog:

If you are a survivor of Rabbi Mordechai Tendler you might be interested in consulting with an attorney. I think there's enough evidence for a class action suit. There's an attorney who I think might represent you if there's a few of you interested.

Believe me he can't be bought by Tendler or any of his followers.

His number is 212-595-1444, ext.2

Remember there is strength in numbers. There are so many of you, I think you stand a chance.

Did anyone verify that this is a really safe attorney? Could just be one of the offender-protectors putting it up to "get" survivors. I think it's safer to contact The Awareness Center or a local survivor advocacy organization for a reference for a lawyer.

Mara,

I can verify it's not only a safe attorney, but a very compassionate attorney who is experienced in clergy abuse cases. (Call Vicki to verify, though.)
(He's my attorney too, for a different rabbi case.)

The attorney's name is Michael Smith. I know him.

i think a law suit is required in this case, becayse tendler keeps lying and denying, and his cult followers blindly accept. a law suit would unfortunately force all the evidence (the incriminating tapes and paper documents which prove tendlers guilt 100%)into the courtroom, evidence that we have all had to keep from becoming public due to the highly personsal, sensitive and confidential issues involved.

From my involvement, albeit on a modest scale, in one of the recent abuse cases, I can tell you that it is long overdue for a class action suit to be brough against one of these abusive Rabbis and the people who protect them. Had there been a suit in the Lanner ase, the cards would have tumbled a lot quicker. Unfortunately, Abusers and their protectors will always try to ride out a storm. A lawsuit forces everybody, including the bystanders in the community, to focus on the issue.
It will also force the community to accept the idea that resolution CANNOT be found in the Beis Din system.
