CALL TO ACTION: Demand Action on the Case of Rabbi David Kaye


Rabbi Kaye was originially video taped back in August, 2005 by Dateline NBC. Since then nothing has been done regarding this case.

Please contact the following individuals and agencies:

1) Telephone and write Rabbi Joel H. Meyers. Demand that the Rabbinical Assembly make a public statement regarding Rabbi David Kaye. The Awareness Center believes that Rabbi David Kaye's smicha (ordination) should be revoked. (Rabbi David Kaye has already resigned his membership from the Rabbinical Assembly)

Rabbi Joel H. Meyers

Executive Vice President

(212) 280-6000


2) Contact the Virginia Attorney General's Office and also the Fairfax Police Department and demand that criminal charges be pressed against Rabbi David Kaye. Please mention that the organization called Perverted Justice sent the chat transcripts and information about Kaye to them, and also after witnessing the dateline episode, and reading the transcript below, you feel that there is enough evidence for an indictment.

Judy Jagdmann - Attorney General of Virginia



Northern Virginia Regional Office - Office of the Attorney General

Rabbi David Kaye was featured on "Dateline NBC" for seeking a sexual encounter with an underage boy in a chat room.

NBC News conducted a sting in August, (2005) working with a group called "Perverted Justice." Members of the group posed as underage boys and girls, entered Internet chat rooms and waited for adults to engage them in conversations.

Kaye was one of many who allegedly spoke to the presumed children about sex, and suggested meeting them. Kaye allegedly sent one individual naked pictures of himself, said he was gay and arranged a meeting at a Northern Virginia home where the "boy" said he lived, which NBC had equipped with hidden cameras.

Rabbi David A. Kaye has been a Jewish educator for 30 years. He has been a pulpit rabbi for 17 years serving Congregation Har Shalom, Potomac, MD and Congregation Agudas Achim, San Antonio, TX.

Rabbi Kaye is currently a member of the Rabbinical Assembly, He has staffed numerous USY conventions and retreats. As a leader in the Washington Federation, he was instrumental in the creation of several innovative youth and Jewish educational initiatives.

I believe everyone should help support The Awareness Center, Inc. (the international Jewish Coalition Against Sexual Abuse/Assault). It is a wonderful (tax-exempt) organization. You can do so by sending a check to:
