CALL TO ACTION: Rabbi Hershy Worch and his new "Yeshiva"

The Awareness Center is DEMANDING the Orthodox Union and the Rabbinic Council of America to make a public statements denouncing the actions and behavior of Rabbi Hershy Worch. By not doing so is condoning his behavior, and advocating for hto continue luring in nonobservant women into learning about his "Torah of Desire."

Hershy Worch received his rabbinic ordination from Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, who was considered to be an orthodox rabbi. Recently Worch created his own Yeshiva and is now planning on giving his students his own Rabbinic Ordination.

According to rabbinic resources, the only way to revoke an ordination is for the rabbi who granted the title to revoke it. Since Shlomo Carlebach passed way, it is said there is no way to have his rabbinic title removed. I've also been informed that once individual becomes a rabbi, halachicly he/she can ordain another individual.

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 rewriting 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?

Jeremy Hershy Worch was born in Manchester, England, on May 20, 1954. He recieved his smicha (ordaination) from Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach in 1992.

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.

He's also on his third wife and STILL trying to pick up women over the internet.

He tried to pick up one woman by using the pity-play about how he's so much like Hannibal Lector.

How does anyone take him seriously?

In spite of all his supporters, he is still his own doom and destruction. The guy just can't help himself. He likes the game too much.

Let's watch him dig his pit...
