rabbi Moshe Heinemann /rabbi Ephraim Shapiro /rabbi Yisroel Shapiro
4/18/2007 (11:30 pm) -- I was told by a reliable source that the sign posted was taken down this afternoon. I was also told that the ban against the Baltimore Jewish Times is still implemented.The following handwritten letter was posted in the Agudah Israel of Baltimore
I'm suggesting that everyone buy two copies of the Baltimore Jewish Times this week. It's one very loud and clear message to Rabbi Heinemann that this type of behavior is not going to work to silence survivors from speaking out. It's time to double the sales of the Baltimore Jewish Times.
"Based on last week's vicious article (regarding rabbi Ephraim Shapiro) in the Baltimore Jewish Times and other articles of the past, it is my opinion that it is totally inappropriate for this publication to be found in any Jewish home." -- Rabbi Moshe Heinemann
I guess rabbi Moshe Heinemann better warn his congregants to also ban the Baltimore Examiner, because they also published a story on the alleged serial child molester. According to both articles Rabbi Ephraim Shapiro is believed to have raped hundreds of children during his rein of alleged terror. Why should rabbi Heinemann care if one of his buddies allegedly committed more crimes against humanity then most?
The issue rav Heinemann has against the Baltimore Jewish Times is that "Hamon" (oops I mean rabbi Shapiro) died back in 1989. He doesn't feel one should publish a story against a dead man. What more harm can he do? It's obvious that rabbi Heinemann just doesn't get it. He's refuses to be educated on the long term ramifications that child molestation plays on it's victims.
If anyone has the opportunity to go into Agudath Israel and take a picture of the sign, please send it to me?
I guess rabbi Heinemann does not believe in the constitution of the United States that provides first amendment right in which there is freedom of the press. I also guess he doesn't believe his congregants should be educated consumers. Why should they be allowed to know what is really happening in their community?
I'm wondering if Moshe Heinemann also against the idea of allowing his congregation having the right to think for themselves?
One has to start to wonder what Moshe Heinemann is also trying to hide from his followers?
Is rabbi Heinemann really afraid for his congregants to learn the truth? Could this be why he frowns upon his shul's membership using the internet and also going on blogs (like they do in Lakewood, NJ)?
Last week the letter from the Vaad Harabbonim came out in which Rabbi Moshe Heinemann signed. Why would Heinemann sign the letter if he wasn't going to comply with it?
I wonder what HaRav Heinemann is going to do when it comes out that rabbi Shapiro's son, Rabbi Yisroel Shapiro is also an alleged child molester? I wonder what part he had in covering up this case too?
