Shabbat Shalom - Dealing With Overwhelming Feelings Relating to the Case of Moshe Eisemann

I have received several e-mail's from various people who are in a state of shock over the case of rabbi Moshe Eisemann. I know how difficult it can be learning someone you honored and respected allegedly sexually abused a child.

Many survivors may also be having a whole array of mixed feelings. On one level they may be elated that the dark secret they have been keeping for years is finally exposed. What happened to them is finally in the light. They may also be feeling a sense of guilt -- if they start learning that more children were abused by the same offender -- and they never told anyone. It would not be unusual for survivors to also be having flashbacks.
A friend of mine is an amature photographer. She took the following photos and created this mini slide show. My hope is that those of you who may be having a difficult time or are experiencing flashbacks -- might be able to use the slide show to replace the images embedded in your mind with the images in this slide show.
