Former Portsmouth Rabbi Found Guilty of Sexual Abuse
Jewish Chronicle (UK) - March 8, 1996

Former synagogue minister Reverend Anthony Dee has been found guilty of sexually abusing two boys and a girl in Blackpool and Portsmouth.

The court also heard that he had admitted to police that he had molested some children in Northern Ireland in the early 1960s.

Dee became minister of Portsmouth Synagogue in 1976. The congregation decided not to renew his contract at the end of 1995.

Following the four-day trial, at Portsmouth Crown Court, it emerged that Dee had sought psychiatric treatment in 1970 to cure his paedophile tendencies.

He denied six charges of indecent assault in Blackpool and Portsmouth between 1966 and 1981, but was found guilty on five counts.

He was cleared of one charge of abusing a girl between 1967 and 1972.

The court heard how Dee pretended to be a man-eating plant to lure one boy into sex games.

He stripped to his string vest and underpants and molested another boy during wrestling matches.
A six-year-old girl was abused as she sat on his lap in the bedroom of his Portsmouth home, the court was told. He is due to return to court on March 29 for sentencing. Originally from Luton, Dee moved to Belfast after theological college and later became a shochet in Blackpool in 1964.

He moved to the Hampshire town in 1976 to take up his post as minister, where he was also head of the community's Hebrew classes and was responsible for teaching barmitvah students.

Kolko's mechutan Grossnas was rosh kollel in Blackpool before moving to South Africa.

There is another former British rov, Ivan Wachmann (originally Irish) from Manchester who was kicked out of his shteller by a beis din for taking advantage of women. He divorced his wife and moved to Florida, where he remarried a woman named Cindy and is today the rabbi of a Conservative / Reform temple. People have contacted Awareness Center but for some odd reason they ignore the communications and do not update the entry.

Rabbi Ivan Wachmann is not the only orthodox rabbi chased out of town and then became either a conservative or reform rabbi. Look at Mark Gafni or even rov Tzvi Axelman.

Axelman is originally from Baltimore, relocated to Neve Yaakov -- was chased out of town after for allegedly molesting boys in a yeshiva. He currently a conservative rabbi in NY.

btw, Axelman is currently going by his English name Rabbi Steven Axelman.

Pruzansky is advertising in the Jewish Press that Yeedle Werdyger is a featured entertainer at the Friar Tuck Inn for Pesach.

That's right rabboysay. A mehadrin event of only shmura matza, non-gebrukts and sex fiends trying to get into your daughters' skirts.

Dayan Westheim from Manchester has poskened that no one should attend Yeedle events.

UOJ, you have to put Pruzansky on notice and Rabbi Yissocher Frand who is the rov in residence.

Monsey Pedophiles Released from Prison said...

Original publication: March 22, 2007

RAMAPO - Two sex offenders have returned to Airmont after serving Rockland County jail sentences for having sex with minors.

Both Michael Ruderman and Betzalel Dym were arrested last year and sentenced on their guilty pleas to six months in jail and 10 years probation.

Ruderman, 60, returned to apartment 102 at 62 N. Debaun Ave., the Airmont Gardens address he reported to Ramapo police. He had pleaded guilty to having sex with a then-14-year-old Clarkstown girl.

Dym, 20, gave the police an address of 418 Route 59. He had sex with a 10-year-old Monsey boy last year.

Both men are classified as Level 2 sex offenders, making them moderate threats to the community. A Level 3 classification is considered a high risk repeat offender, while a Level 1 offender is classified as a low risk.

Ruderman was convicted July 20 of criminal sexual act for having sex with a young girl between 2001 and 2003. She was 14 in 2001.

Clarkstown police arrested Ruderman in February 2006 after the now-19-year-old New York City woman told them that Ruderman tried making contact with her again. Ruderman gave a statement to detectives about his relationship with the victim.

When the police searched Ruderman's apartment, they found a fake U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration badge, several guns and a pair of handcuffs.

Ruderman, described as white, 5 feet 8 inches tall, more than 200 pounds with gray hair and green eyes, is a retired, self-employed paper recycler.

Dym was convicted Aug. 9 of first-degree sexual abuse for having sex with a 10-year-old Monsey boy. Ramapo police arrested Dym for having sex with the child five times between January and May.

Dym was described as white, 5 feet 11 inches tall, about 200 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. He wears glasses.

Under state law, all sex offenders must report their addresses to their local police departments.

The police then can notify schools, libraries, day-care centers and any other businesses that draw children.

Ramapo police informed the East Ramapo and Ramapo Central school districts that both men were living in Airmont. East Ramapo informed other districts, such as the Nanuet School District.

The schools can then publicly report the sex offender's presence in the community.

Nanuet school district officials released the details on Ruderman and Dym to their residents and the public.

"Our Board of Education has decided that any information received from a police department or neighboring school district regarding a sex offender living in or near the community should be shared with our residents," Nanuet Schools Superintendent Mark McNeill said.

Rockland law prohibits Level 2 and 3 offenders from living, working or congregating within 1,000 feet of schools or places where children congregate.

Important Point for Kolko, Mondrowitz, Leizerowitz said...
If these lowlives do anything in Israel, they are breaking US law. Americans who travel to a foreign country to exploit a minor can be arrested and prosecuted when they return to the US.

Pedophile arrested in Jerusalem

Etgar Lefkovits, THE JERUSALEM POST Mar. 20, 2007

A 50-year-old convicted pedophile who was released from prison last year after serving an 11-year sentence for child molestation was under arrest Tuesday for allegedly sexually molesting 30 children in Jerusalem, police said.

The suspect, who has confessed to the allegations, was apprehended on Monday after the father of one of the girls called the police to report that his daughter had been molested, police said. He is suspected of preying on girls aged 10 to 12 he encountered in the street in one of the city's haredi neighborhoods.

"The suspect said he was aware of the severity of his actions but he had a problem, and that he could not control himself," Jerusalem police investigator Avi Brickman said. The suspect, who is divorced, recently moved to Jerusalem and worked in a haredi yeshiva, Brickman said.

It was not immediately clear Tuesday if the child molester had been under any supervision after his recent release from prison.

The Jerusalem Magistrate's Court remanded him in
custody for six days until his scheduled indictment.
