Two articles came out today in the Baltimore Jewish Times regarding alleged child molester - Rabbi Moshe Eisemann.
If you live in Baltimore go out and buy at least two copies. Share them with your friends. Remember this is the newspaper banned by Rabbi Moshe Heinemann. Buying several copies is a way to say NO to those who cover up sex crimes in Baltimore and enable child molesters to continue on. Another way is to make donations to The Awareness Center, Inc.

Ner Israel Rabbi Alleged Abuser:
1) When Whispers Get Louder - Abuse Questions Raised on Ner Israel's Rabbi Moshe EisemannBaltimore Jewish Times - Page 24
The whispering got lounder in the summer of 2006, Rabbi Moshe Eisemann, 71, a beloeved longtime Ner Israel Rabbinical College scholar, teacher and author, was associated with the words "alleged molester."
A Baltimore - area pulpit rabbi and Ner Israel colleague left Rabbi Eisemann off the invitation list to his daughters wedding, because of the uncertainty of it all. . .
2) Former Student Speaks Up - Mike Simms has bitter memories of his time in Yeshiva
Baltimore Jewish Times - Page 26
. . . Mike Simms, originally Zev Simanowitz, has come a long way since he wa a student of Rabbi Moshe Eisemann, a teacher, author and scholar at Baltimore's Ner Israel Rabbinical College.____________________
Mr. Simms, a phoenix-area locksmith, former community newspaper publisher and writer, was Rabbi Eisemann's student in the 1960s at the Philadelphia Talmudical Academy.
He said he doesn't remember much from his classes with Rabbi Eisemann. But he does recall his former teacher had a "habit of staring at people's crotches. I knew that being around him there was an ongoing assault on my privates. He'd stare at my privates to the point it made me uncomfortable." . . .
CALL TO ACTION: Rabbi Moshe Eiseman's Removal From Ner Israel, Baltimore, MD
The Awareness Center
September 3, 2006
There have been serious allegations made against Rabbi Moshe Eiseman over the last several years of molesting boys at Ner Israel of Baltimore, MD. The allegations were first reported by a blogger by the name of Unorthodox Jew. These allegations have since been confirmed by various reliable rabbinic sources.
It has been over a month since the Ner Israel administration brought the allegations to Rabbi Yaakov Hopfer who made a decree that Rabbi Eiseman needed to leave the Ner Israel. To this day Rabbi Moshe Eiseman is still employed by Ner Israel and continues to lives on their campus. Each day that goes by puts another child at risk of harm.
The Awareness Center is demanding that Rabbi Moshe Eiseman be relieved of his duties immediately, move off campus and required to attend treatment at a residential facility for sex offenders. It is also imperative that all communities members in which Rabbi Eiseman has worked be made aware of the allegations. The goal is to prevent one more child from being harmed and also to make sure that all past victims get the help they need.
Those who have been sexually victimized deserve to be treated with respect and dignity by professionals who have the experience and training to work with survivors of sex crimes. It is also very helpful if survivors contact local rape crisis centers who have free legal advocates available to go with them to file police reports.
There is a realistic fear that Rabbi Eiseman will return to Russia or return to working with Russian immigrants. These communities also need to be made aware of the past allegations and that if survivors come forward that they be referred to local rape crisis centers.
The goal is to prevent on more child from becoming the next victim and to ensure those who have already been sexually victimize receive help.
Please contact the administration at Ner Israel and Rabbi Hopfer and demand that Rabbi Moshe Eiseman be removed today!
