When the clergy takes sexual advantage

As recent traumatizing events shake those of us in the national Jewish community, we realize that the phenomenon is certainly not exclusive to the Catholic priesthood, despite the intensity of recent media focus. It is endemic.

Nearly 40 years ago, my classmates and I, and certainly our yeshiva’s instructors, openly discussed the intellectual genius and psychotic disposition (“nutcase”) of a fellow seminarian. Yet he was duly ordained, recruited to work with vulnerable youth, rising to the top of the pop chart. And now, his name disgraces national headlines for countless allegations of abuse, and all we can say is that “we knew it all along.” Shame on him, but immeasurably more shame on us.

I applaud Rabbi Wilson's bravery in coming forward and saying this. Hopefully, as the topic of sexually abusive rabbis moves into the collective community's conscience, this won't happen anymore.

The history of perfume goes back to Egypt, although it was prevalent in East Asia as well. Early perfumes were based on incense, not chemicals, so aromas were passed around through fumes. The Roman and Islamic cultures further refined the harvesting and manufacturing of perfumery processes to include other aromatic ingredients.

Thus, the ancient Islamic culture marked the history of modern perfumery with the introduction of spices and herbs. Fragrances and other exotic substances, such as Jasmine and Citruses, were adapted to be harvested in climates outside of their indigenous Asia.
