CALL TO ACTION: Case of Rabbi J. Hershel Worch (Manchester, England, Mbale, Uganda; Melbourne, Australia; Pawtucket, RI; Chicago, IL; Istanbul, Turke

CALL TO ACTION:
Case of Rabbi J. Hershel Worch (Manchester, England, Mbale, Uganda; Melbourne, Australia; Pawtucket, RI; Chicago, IL; Istanbul, Turkey)


In the past the alleged survivors of Rabbi Hershy Worch have spoken to rabbis at both the
RCA (Rabbinical Council of America) and also to Rabbis at the CRC (Chicago Rabbinical Council). Unfortunately because Rabbi Hershy Worch is not a member of either rabbinical organization very little could be done.

Since Rabbi Hershy Worch is consider to be an orthodox rabbi, The Awareness Center is asking that the Orthodox Union investigate the claims, and make a public statement on their web page of their findings.

The allegations against Rabbi Hershy Worch include Rabbinical Sexual Misconduct and also the claims of his re-writing and misuse of Torah. These claims have been following Hershy Worch around the world for several years. Isn't it time for someone in authority to do something?


Rabbi Hershy Worch recieved his smicha (ordination) from
Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach.

There have been several serious allegations made claiming
Reb Hershy's behavior as being predatory, manipulative and sexually abusive. Allegations have been made in while residing in Chicago; from a group from the Hamakom Synagogue in Melbourne, Australia; and from other locations.

Rabbi Worch has been accused of utilizing a mixture of kabbalah, hypno-eroticism and other manipulative techniques to enagage his potential victims prior to sexually assaulting them.

There have been allegations that Reb Hershy creates a cult-like devotion to himself utilizing trance-like-states, guided meditation, hypnosis; all under the guise of kabbalah teachings. Allegedly his MO (modus operandi) has been to use such techniques on women with histories of childhood abuse, so that he can lead them into BDSM
(Bondage, Domination, Sadism, Masochism). activities with him.

Rabbi Worch has allegedly written a "BDSM-Kabbalah" and finds his "students" over the internet, primarily through his Livejournal "Kabbalah_101" community.


As the pressures mounted, Rabbi Hershy Worch moved from his home in Chicago to Istanbul, Turkey.

I would note that YY appears to spend long days reading this blog among others.

Yoram Yanover of course does not allow comments on his blog, has posted anonymously on other blogs (Protocols) and currently has financial ties with his friend Rabbi Hershy Worch.

http://www.lukeford.net/profiles/profiles/JHershyWorch.htm

and runs his website; http://rebhershy.com/

Rabbi (Jeremy)Hershy Worch of course is Moonish Lunar who posts stories about graphically sexually assaulting and murdering people on the internet.

Page that has his phone number before he fled to Turkey and not show up at child visitation hearings:

1)
Webpage that has Lunar Moonish's phone number:

>Moonish Lunar

>(773) 761-8734

2)
A google search which confirms the ownership of that phone number (Worch's number before he fled to Turkey and not show up at child custody hearings and ignore his support obligations).

The OU would not touch this issue with a 1000-foot pole. Besides, they do not claim to have any particular authority over any Rabbi or shul, unless the shul is a paying member synagogue of the Orthodox Union.

Also, Rabbi Weinreb (head of the OU) has a PhD in Psychology and is a certified Psychologist. According to the OU website: "Rabbi Weinreb served as Assistant Supervisor of Psychological Services for the Prince George's County Public Schools, as Chief Psychologist of the Potomac Foundation for Mental Health, and also maintained a private practice of psychotherapy."

I am confident that Rabbi Weinreb would see Vicki for what she really is - a person in desperate need of treatment.

Yoram send the money you collect on behalf of Worch to his kids.

It's clear tati won't.

Open questions for Yoram and suggestions for Worch's ex-wives:

Yoram is soliciting funds and selling Worch's tapes through his business that runs the Worch website and runs weekly classes.

1) Have you ever got an accounting for these funds?

2) Worch is a non-resident. Has Yoram been withholding Non-Resident Taxes on it?

3) Has Worch declared this income on his annual returns?

4) Has anyone contacted the IRS I.R.S. INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE(800) 829-1040 and inquired about this?

5) If Worch owes back support, maybe you should garnish his revenues directly at this source and also demand the intellectual rights and royalties to his website, tapes and books?

6) Just an open thought, consult your lawyers. Confirm facts with the IRS.

Again, I suggest people contact their lawyers and the IRS.

YANOVER CONSULTING INC. is a registered company. They have to keep records of funds collected for Worch and are required to remit Non-Resident-Taxes on any royalties/income sent to him.

The same is true of any of his books.

But again, those are assets you should seize through the courts if he owes you money.

Call your lawyers, call the IRS.

Tati needs to support his children.

I'm encouraging you Yoram to make an accounting to Worch's children of all the funds their Tati should be giving to them.

I'm encouraging it very publicly.

It is your choice if it needs to go farther.

And I am not Vicki.

As Worch and ex-wives are already in litigation before the courts. There is no issue of mesirah in adding this issue to the mix.

Still "melling" fear?

I would note Yoram that you have made use of the civil courts in the past.

A MESSAGE TO ALL OF J HERSHY WORCH'S CURRENT FEMALE *STUDENTS*:


Next time you're having a sexual trance phone session with your rebbe, listen carefully for unusual sounds in the background, and ask yourself this:

Can you be absolutely sure that he has not clicked onto a conference call so that Yanover can listen in?

Think of this, too: All your *secrets* he has you write to him, can you be absolutely positive he isn't sharing those with Yanover?

After all, he sent me the writings of various womens' *secrets*, pehaps I've read yours, perhaps you've read mine.

Think about these things next time he manipulates you into feeling *safe*.
