Cantor Michael Segelstein and Chabad of Southern Nevada

Cantor Michael Segelstein

Should a convicted sex offender who's on the national sex offender registry be allowed on Purim to be drunk and performing in front of children? I guess the Chabad of Southern Nevada thinks it's ok.
Cantor Michael Segelstein is the one on the right wearing a suit.

CALL TO ACTION from The Awareness Center:

Originally arraigned on one count each of attempted sexual assault, battery with intent to commit sexual assault and open and gross lewdness. Segelstein pled guilty as part of a plea agreement to open or gross lewdness, received one year suspended sentence with conditions and court ordered into counseling and was discharged from probation on December 2, 2005.

Michael Alan Segelstein is currently on both the Flordia and National Sex Offender registries.

CALL TO ACTION: With the information provided above one has to be concerned for the saftey of the women at Chabad of Southern Nevada. It appears that Michael Segelstein is an honored member of Chabad of Southern Nevada. Please contact Rabbi Shea Harlig and let your voice be heard!

Would you expect anything else from Chabad? Their known for doing kiruv work to criminals.

Aren't they the group that converted Hbrandon Lee Flagner to Judaism?

Flagner confessed and was later convicted of the kidnapping and aggravated murder of Tiffany Jennifer Papesh a 8-year-old girl. Flagner also claimed to have molested hundreds of girls during his life. While in prison Flagner was allowed to convert to Judaism by an Chasidic rabbi. Flagner changed name from Chico Virgilio Tenorio in 1977.

There is no halachic imperative to have converted such a person.

The Chabad rabbi responsible should be identified & ostracized.

Does anyone know who it is?
