Does Rabbis Saul Berman, Joseph Telushkin, Tirzah Firestone and Psychiatrist, Stephen Marmer have the courage to do Teshuva?

Tis the season for doing Teshuva
The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
Will Mordechai Gafni enablers, Rabbi Saul Berman, Joseph Telushkin, Arthur Green and Psychiatrist, Stephen Marmer, M.D. and the rest of the Berman gang -- pick of the phone, make a few telephone calls with their personal appologies to the three past survivors of Rabbi Mordechai Gafni, Rabbi Yosef Blau, Vicki Polin and the board of directors at The Awareness Center?

Let's not forget that Rabbi Saul Berman was the brains behind the attempted campaign to silence survivors!

As of today Berman's documents continue to circulate in his attempt to destroy The Awareness Center (the only Jewish organization that advocates for the rights of survivors of sex crimes). Saul has never made any attempt to remove these documents from circulation or made a public statement to correct the record.
Rarely does the abuser or the enablers take responsibility for what occured. A formal insincere apology need not be taken seriously. It is often part of a manipulation to reverse things and make the survivor feel guilty. Individual situations may not lend themseves to to a general answer. -- Rabbi Yosef Blau
