A Heartfelt Letter To The Abuse Victims Of Kolko/Margulies/Tora Temima

Dearest Brothers,

I am not going to assume that I understand the life-long pain you are suffering being victims of sexual abuse. If the hurt you are presently feeling is because I have brought this issue to the front and center of the Orthodox world, kindly understand that I did it with the sole purpose of creating a new climate in our world; that of accountability.

The religious organizations as well as the yeshivas have failed miserably in protecting our youth from the merciless hands of abusers, be it sexual abuse or emotional. In matter of fact the Agudah for example, has ACTIVELY pursued a policy of protecting the molesters and their cohorts, by blocking every single piece of legislation that would have permitted the authorities to protect our children from the predators.They say "let the principals handle it," when the principals in many cases are involved in covering up the scandals to protect the "reputations" of their highly profitable fiefdoms.

There is nothing in it for me. I will remain anonymous; no fame, no glory, no plaques, no maftir, no money other than the money I intend to spend to publicize the issues that should be addressed by the organizations but are not. The mailing on Thursday is working it's way to your mailboxes; the post office and the mailing service are nice and friendly, but they insist on getting paid for their services. Bummer.

I would understand your hesitancy to come forward in a civil lawsuit against the above named people and entities; this is what I can offer to you as miniscule compensation for the suffering you have experienced.

I am in contact with the law firm who has collected in excess of two hundred million dollars from the various Catholic churches and archdioceses that were found guilty of harboring molesters.This is what they uncovered so far.

1- The combined assets of Kolko, Margulies, Tora Temima and it's entities have a net worth in excess of fifty million dollars.

2- "Leopold" Margulies started moving millions of dollars of assets around at the end of last year.

3- The law firm is VERY CERTAIN that if there are twenty bona fide witnesses,they can obtain a judgment against the above named entities, and wrestle away ALL the assets of the above named people and entities.

4- The juries have awarded damages, depending on the circumstances, from $500,000-$5,000,000, read five million dollars per victim.

5- In order for this firm to take this case the following has to happen:

a- I must give them a $100,000 retainer, which will be reimbursed to me after they collect on the judgment. This reimbursement would come from the "law firm's" proceeds, not from the victims'.

b- I am willing to do that out of my personal funds. I DO NOT want money from anyone!

c- The law firm's share would be one third of whatever they collect, the rest is going to be distributed in it's entirety to the victims.

d- They will NOT take the case until they have interviewed at the very least TWENTY victims, and are convinced of the credibility of the individuals.

e- I'm sure you are aware that everything you divulge to the attorneys would be protected under the attorney-client privilege.

The following must now happen in order for me to proceed. I must be contacted by e-mail by at the very least twenty five people that are willing to testify in court. ALL REPLIES WILL BE HELD IN THE STRICTEST CONFIDENCE.

The way I see it, each victim potentially would be able to collect anywhere from one to two million dollars, realistically. That is not to say that the judgment could not be greater than fifty million dollars; anything above fifty million, in my opinion, would not be collectible.

The alternative to actually taking money; you may wind up owning Yeshiva Tora Temima and it's entities, Margulies's house and Kolko's house, and you would now be in control of the yeshiva, to run it as you deem fit.

Please let me know. I am prepared to move quickly!

Hatzlacha v'kol tuv.

UOJ


This is the letter. On yellow paper with a postmark dated February 2, 2006. UOJ, a man of his word!

CHILD MOLESTER ALERT

ATTENTION ALL PARENTS

There is a chronic child molester in our midst. He is not in hiding nor is he being kept away from our children. Shockingly, he is a Rebbe in Yeshiva Torah Temima located at 507 & 555 Ocean Parkway in Brooklyn, New York.

Rabbi Lipa Margulies knows of this Rebbe’s history of sexually molesting children. Rabbi Lipa Margulies refuses to remove this predator from his yeshiva. Specifically, Rabbi Lipa Margulies has been informed; repeatedly and from sources independent of each other; that Rabbi Yidi Kolko has sexually molested countless children during his long career around children.

Rabbi Yidi Kolko sexually molested children in Camp Agudah. Rabbi Yidi Kolko sexually molested children in Yeshiva Karlin Stolin. Rabbi Yidi Kolko sexually molested children in Camp MaNaVu. Rabbi Yidi Kolko spends his life around our children. It bears repeating that Rabbi Yidi Kolko is currently a Rebbe in Yeshiva Torah Temima.

We have a problem. This is not to say that our wonderful community has more child molesters than other communities. We may even have substantially fewer. The problem is in our propensity to ignore the covering up of these horrendous incidents. Child molesters must be exposed and removed from our midst. Our children must not be subjected to molesters while in school. Rabbi Lipa Margulies must stop his unconscionable employment of this molester and his covering up of this threat. Rabbi Yidi Kolko must resign his position immediately. We can not rest until our children are safe from this scourge.

This mailing should not have been necessary. Both Rabbi Yidi Kolko and Rabbi Lipa Margulies were given advance copies of this letter and advised if Rabbi Yidi Kolko left Yeshiva Torah Temima immediately, this mailing would be stopped. Rabbi Yidi Kolko responded: “the matter has been taken care of” coupled with an offer to meet with his victims in person, one at a time. Rabbi Lipa Margulies responded: “I don’t think he is still a threat and I am responsible for the children” followed by “Anyone who doesn’t like it, doesn’t have to send their children to my yeshiva.” In short, neither of these Mechanchim deny the facts; they simply refuse to do the right thing.

We are writing to ask you to speak out and help bring an end to this nightmare. Please call Rabbi Yidi Kolko at 1-718-252-6642 and ask him to resign his position immediately. Please call Rabbi Lipa Margulies at 1-718-438-1900 and ask him to dismiss Rabbi Yidi Kolko immediately. Child molesters must be kept away from our children. Our children deserve no less.

Keep it up UOJ, don't let them take you down. As a former TT student from when it was still called TV of Flatbush, (and who, by the way, did not have Kolko as a Rebbe, but who never heard anything bad about him at the time) I'm waiting to hear from people who have gotten the letter, as well as Margo and Kolko himself. I'm skeptical that that this was the way to get action but I do hope for all involved that you know what you are doing.

SOME READING BELOW FOR THE WANNABE HACKERS:

"There is another group of people who loudly call themselves hackers, but aren't. These are people (mainly adolescent males) who get a kick out of breaking into computers and phreaking the phone system. Real hackers call these people ‘crackers’ and want nothing to do with them. Real hackers mostly think crackers are lazy, irresponsible, and not very bright, and object that being able to break security doesn't make you a hacker any more than being able to hotwire cars makes you an automotive engineer.

The basic difference is this: hackers build things, crackers break them.

If you want to be a hacker, keep reading. If you want to be a cracker, go read the alt.2600 newsgroup and get ready to do five to ten in the slammer after finding out you aren't as smart as you think you are. And that's all I'm going to say about crackers."

mumcha said...

Shlomo,

The people who received or will receive the letter were from a complied list. It is my opinion that the list was comprised of other lists - mainly Tzedaka orgs. or Yeshiva lists.

Since you don't really earn money yet (and you don't have kids in Yeshiva) you probably don't give much Tzedaka - therefore you aren't on a "mosod list."

When your shtotty law career takes off, perhaps you'll begin to receive Tzedaka mail.

Letter Supporter said...

The letters have arrived in our homes.

All those who are interested in the safety of our children, please discuss the letter and if you are comfortable with its accuracy, ask your friends to call Kolko and Margulies to request they do the right thing.

Flatbush Yid, your values are askew.

Yeshiva Rebbe said...

I have been a rebbe in yshivas for almost thirty years. I am not a fan of anonymous letters or rechilus, however there is no effective way in place to deal with problems like Margolis and Kolko.
This scandal is the worst kept secret in the yeshiva world.
I know many people who have been affected for life by these two.
The cover-up in a way is worse than the crime, because Kolko should have been fired immediately!! Kids do not make up these stories. Out of hundreds and hundreds of rebbes in the system one guy decides to spend thousands of dollars on a mailing to pick on a particular rebbe for no reason? We in the chinuch world know it's true.
Until the yeshivas and mosdos aggressively deal with these abominations, I support OUJ's approach.

Another TT Parent said...

Anon above:

Proof? You want proof??? There is no proof!! Why do you think UOJ went fishing when he offered up to $2,000,000 as a bribe to anyone willing to come forward and say "I was molested" (as copied from UOJ's "Heartfelt" letter above - "The following must now happen in order for me to proceed. I must be contacted by e-mail by at the very least twenty five people that are willing to testify in court. ALL REPLIES WILL BE HELD IN THE STRICTEST CONFIDENCE.
The way I see it, each victim potentially would be able to collect anywhere from one to two million dollars, realistically.")

UOJ has claimed that R' Kolko molested "countless children" in TT, Stolin, Camp Agudah, Ma-Na-Vu. I would imagine that he said this because he had so many people from each of those places that came forward to him. If that's the case, where are they now? Why does he have to make a public appeal for people to come forward? Did these people not already come forward to him?? The obvious answer is NO!! If UOJ had bonafide victims who came to him why would he be hiding behind his anononymity?

UOJ, I got to hand it you. For $2,000,000 I'm tempted to come forward.

Anonymous said...

I received the letter and am wondering if this is true how is it that tt is still open? a yeshiva with a molester still teaching and uoj is the bad guy?
Shame on the people that allowed it to continue for the yeshiva to be open. so now we have to rely on an anymous blogger to protect our children? what am I missing here?

Anonymous said...

I have received information from credible sources that the real reason Magolies has been protecting Kolko is.................They are actually lovers...every morning after shacharis kolko goes up to the office where margolies shows him whos daddy...a little before breakfast ass reaming !!

Gingerbread Man:

Most of the hockers that run around in kapotes with their pants pulled up high are frauds. I always wonder what goes through the mind of a "rabbi" who decides to don langa rekel and an up-hat - he think to himself "ah it doesn't pas to wear suits from Syms anymore... I gotta look choshuv...it's not "ahlts" my kavod it's for the bochurim to have kovod HaTorah!" I actually heard this from a guy who went to "Long Beach." He really believed that the Rebbeim didn't want to change their "livush" but they did it for the talmidim who needed it. I asked him why R' Pam didn't need to wear choshuve livush to get respect.

Put your BS and ne'gius on the side for a minute, and tell me - what would you do if you were Margo.

You know Kolko for years and he is a valueable asset to your yeshiva. You get a anonymous letter from an "unorthodox jew" warning you to fire your esteemed Magid Shiur because 25 years ago, there was some rumors about him.

Honestly, OUJ. You would fire him just like that?
No names, No haskomas, just threats?

Look at the Tendler situation. I don't care what you think of the opposing Rabbi's who signed, but they are PEOPLE WITH FAMILIES AND CONGEGRATIONS WHO WERE WILLING TO PUT THEIR NAME ON THE LINE.

Seriously, What make you think Margo will fire him?

margo says he ain't removing kolko and if the parents don't like it they can send their kids elsewhere.

Anonymous,
Please report the child molester to the police and inform The Awareness Center. That's their specialty.
This Kolko/Margulies issue is tearing my heart out...innocent kids at the mercy of the Godfather of the yeshiva Mafia and a very sick man.

I was told that Fox News had a piece tonight on a child that was molested by a priest when he was ten years old; he is now 19 and just informed his parents who went to the police and hired a Miami attorney named Mr. Herman who is suing the diocese and the priest.

Mr. Herman's position is that the diocese is responsible for the happenings in their schools, whether they claim they knew about the priest's problem or not.

Furthermore, he says, if he can prove the diocese knew about the behavior of the priest, and the diocese kept him there anyway, the diocese's assets, all of them, will be owned by his client.

I don't believe in coincidence, that's my message to stay the course.

gross said...

The difference is obvious – Kolko has a well-known history of chronic sex abuse, whereas Tendler’s behavior is relatively recent. Rabbi Leopold's protection is even more despicable because he knows that the one he is protecting is GUILTY of committing acts against CHILDREN. There is no possible defense here. Unlike in the case of an adult, pleading “consensual” is not an option.

boog said...

What has happened to us is that we have by direction and inculcation of our "Rabbinic Leaders" turned Torah Yiddishkeit upside down on its head.

White is black and black is white.

Torah-true Emes "Frum" has been seeded with elements of "krum" which allows perversions such as child sex molestation/predation against children, sex harassment and worse against women, and money fraud schemes and chicanery against individuals, corporations, and Government Agencies to go unchecked and unreported. Look to Skver in Monroe where massive money fraud has been raised to a Mitzvah...have a problem, need a pardon? no problem...just get on the phone to Hillary and Bill and it will be taken care of. Contact Gedaliah Weinberger to host a Dinner/Parlor meeting in his home for the Skverer Rebbe, who doled out Brochos to the Flatbush/Boro Park grateful.

We have the yo-yo dip-Lipshitz editor of the Yated in lakewood who exhorts the BMG faithful by equating the wearing of the Black Hat to Shevat Levi.
If you are questioned as to the meaning of the Black Hat, he writes, tell them you are from the illustrious Shevat Levi. There is something much worse than 'bugs' in the Lakewood water.

Jack Abramov and many of the denizens of Otisville wear the Black Hat, so what? Cheetzonious is nice and good, Penimious is better.

Look to Otisville, where a growing clan of "Am Hanivcharniks" have taken up residence for committing all kinds of money frauds. The latest "sheine yidden" to hit the front pages of our newspapers are Jeffrey Rosen and David Cohen of Kew Gardens for doctoring tax returns for over thousands of their professional clients. Not to worry. Three "Glatt" Kosher meals (Heinemann-Star-K? Oy Vey!), Daf Yomi, and Guest lectures by our Rabbis await them.

Lanner,
Mondrowitz,
Tendler,
Bryks,
Carlebach,
Kolko,

just to name a few sex pervert All-Stars.

Rechilus, Loshon Hora, and Motzei Shem Ra have been given new meanings and definitions whcih protect these monsters.

The Agudah, Torah Umesorah, Rabbinic Leadership, have known and know of these sex predators and not only done absolutely nothing, but Agudah continuously goes out of its way to stymie any and all legislative attempts
to bring some sanity into our classrooms and prevent sex predators from entering the halls of our Yeshivas as employees. They are complicit in allowing these perversions to continue and will be held accountable.

How can you do this OUJ? they ask. They (the molesters)have families is the refrain. True. They also have a very big problem which cries out for some form of professional help and at the very least a job away from Chinuch and away from our children.

What about the the molestees and their families? Who will give their lives back to them? Why doesn't anybody give a s--t? Where are you Dov Hikind? Going to Gush Katif was noble and a nice PR photo-op for you but we have a big problem here. Where is your big mouth on this situation? You could stare down Guiliani on 13th Avenue at a rally in front of Amnon's Pizza but you don't have the beitzim to address this issue? Wonder why?

Kudos to UOJ for stepping front and center to tackle this.

I received the letter yesterday. It is an important first step but I agree with you that more actons will be necessary to effect positive change because Vee'Ikovda Es Lev Paroh.

Nothing in life that is worthwhile comes easy.

Stay the course, UO.

Black Hatter said...

OUJ and Letter Supporter,

All you guys answered me was that Margo knew about this for such a long time.
THATS EXACTLY MY POINT! If he knew this all along and he never fired Kolko, what makes you think he'll change his mind now, because of an anonymous letter?
My question was for you guys to take time out for a second, and to see it from his perspective.

Again, I'm not questioning whether Kolko is guilty, but rather in actual reality, will Margo fire him.

anonymous,

My point wasn't that a haskoma should be needed to oust a child molester, but rather, from Margo's perspective, do you believe he'll fire his close friend/rebbe because a letter went out not signed by any Rov/Posek/Rabbi/Rebbe? Place yourself in his shoes for a second and tell us HONESTLY what you would do do if you were him.

And if its your decision to fire him, explain why your getting scared of some anonymous letter writer when you have $50 million in assets (according to OUJ).

I hope UOJ is ready to burn in hell for the recent letters slandering and attempting to destroy a dedicated mechanech of many years. I find it most telling that the letter bears NO signature and originated from some shady PO box in San Diego California. In fact, nowhere in either his letter or his blog does anybody identify themselves at all. It should be noted that in the Catholic sex abuse scandal, there were NAMES and FACES--pepole who were abused. Nothing of the sort here. I firmly believe that UNORTHODOX is so anti the entire frum establishment, that he will viciously malign and slander anyone without a thought of the potential harm. His sole interest is in causing strife within the frum jewish community. PLEASE DISREGARD THIS DANGEROUS PSYCHOPATH!

OUJ, why are you coming forward now? What prompted you to do this and possibly destroy a man's life? If this is true, IF IF IF, could this not have been taken up privately? Did you consult A dayan or any relgious authority before you sent out this letter? You have not proved your credibility but you already sent out the letter.

Anonymous said...

I won't be quick to pass judgement about R Kolko because I myself have not witnessed him do anything untoward, nor do I personally know anyone who has witnessed this, nor do I know anyone who claims to be a victim. Furthermore, it's very hard to prove yourself innocent in this case. UOJ, assume your secty one day wakes up and decides you sexually assualted her. Prove you didn't

I do question UOJ's motves. It appears to ME (and several people who received the letter) that Mr. UOJ has a beef (perhaps business?) with Rabbi Margulies. He seems hell bent on taking down Margulies and not bringing Kolko to justics. Sure he CLAIMS he wants to protect the children, but his real goal is to see Margulies suffer and I highly doubt it's because of anything Kolko did.

All that glitters is not gold and you, Mr. UOJ are far from gold.

GRQ said...

It is not UOJ's job to "prove" his credibility. If you want names as proof, call Kolko and Margo and ask them. Dayanim and Rabbonim don't give a crap and they are scared shitless of money men like Margo. Wake up!

No amount of evidence will convince some people of the truth. A victim comes forward and he is labeled crazy - it's an uphill climb but will be worthwile in the end.

Letter Supporter said...

We tried accomplishing this without making a public statement. We contacted Kolko and Margulies and discussed the situation with them. Both Kolko and Margulies were immediately aware that they were dealing with people who had first hand knowledge of Kolko's guilt. They did not even attempt to deny the facts.

Nonetheless, they dismissed our request that Kolko leave our children's classroom.

We than sent both Kolko and Margulies advance copies of the letter and again asked that Kolko leave our children's classroom. They asked us to trust them to protect our children. We responded that a molester has no place around our children.

We gave them a deadline. They refused to act.

Only then did we mail the letter.

We are again asking that Kolko leave teaching. We will not proceed to our next step if he does so immediately. If he does not leave Yeshiva Torah Temima and stay away from children, we will take the next step in our campaign.

This situation will escalate out of our control very quickly. Several yeshivas and organizations are complicit in the covering up of Kolko's molesting of our children. We are not interested in bringing these yeshivas and organizations to their knees. We merely want our children to be safe in their classrooms.

Yidi Kolko, Lipa Margulies; do the right thing.

Don't be a fool. Do you honestly believe for one second that R' Kolko and R' Margolies admitted to UOJ that he molested children and they've been hiding it for the past 25 years. Did they ever admit to anyone in the past that this occurred? Now we're to believe that all of a sudden UOJ calls them up and they admit to a total stranger that they committed one of the most henious crimes and then covered it up???

By the way, I personally have spoken to R' Kolko in the last few days and A- he denies anything ever happened and B- he denies ever saying to anyone let alone UOJ that he did anything C- R' Margolies never said any such thing to anybody.

Think about it for a second. Even if these things did happen why would anyone in their right mind admit to it to anyone, let alone a total stranger ???!!!

Former Yeshiva Boy said...

After careful consideration, and probably against my best interests, I felt the need to share my thoughts growing up under the shadow of Rabbi Kolko for 10 years in Tora Temima and 10 years in Camp MaNaVu.

Early on I always felt he was fair, reasonable, and cunning disciplinarian. He was the authority. The J Edgar Hoover of the Yeshiva world. Tough bur fair.

I sincerely felt bad for him when he lost his house and camp. And my heart cries out to him and his family to have to go through all this. I did not hear any of these rumors until about two years ago when I was approx. 23. They weren’t current rumors just parents finally sharing information with their kids they didn’t deem was appropriate at a younger age.

However,

Looking back I recall, in my opinion, 2 important incidences.

(1) My last month in Tora Temima (8th Grade) Rabbi Kolko called in a friend of mine to randomly interrogated him in connection with our "modern" group of friends, specifically if we watch porn, where we watch it, and how often we masturbate Etc Etc. He threaten my friend with expulsion if he didn't talk.

I recall, feelings of sin and embarrassment while Kolko represented purity and goodness

Looking back I thought it was so cool that Rabbi Kolko didn't tell anyone or get us in trouble. Children are so innocent.

(2) Unfortunately I feel a duty to relate this one. It was well known and some of my friends unfortunately participated, that early on in camp to join Kolko’s sons click (who’s perks included sleeping in Kolko’s camp house at night) you had to show his son your genitalia. Parents complained to Rabbi Kolko he did nothing

I sincerely hope UOJ motivation is pure. I have been a small time victim of the yeshiva words flagrant indifference to molestation and abuse.

In Yeshiva Toras Moshe I was sexually assaulted by a fellow student. In my first year I was assigned to a dira off campus adjacent to a second year boy who later assaulted me. As I found out several days later, this boy had a history well know to Rabbi Meisalman and Rabbi Fischman of sexually attacking fellow students. Most recent to my incident he sexually assaulted a sleeping classmate in the TOMO dorms the year before.

In response to the first incident Toras Moshe did nothing paving the way for him to attack me. They even tried to force the first victim to leave the yeshiva and threatened him if he told anyone. They sent the attacker to a Psychiatrist and declared him cured after a few sessions.

The following year they assigned him with me and one other boy to an off campus dira where he attacked me in my sleep. I Thank G-d I woke up and was able to fend him off.
Present day, this boy is now a married Shaol and Mashiv working with first year students in Toras Moshe. As I found out Toras Moshe has long history of covering up sexual abuse scandals before and after my incident.
Coincidently a 21 year old Toras Moshe boy just home from Israel jumped of the Empire State Building last friday.

I have noticed a overwhelming aura of homosexuality and sexual deviation thought my years in the yeshiva system from the rabbis to the students.

This obviously comes from the sexual restraint that is preached in conjunction with the all male environment.

I have an acquaintance that is trying to sue Camp Romumu for failing to remove a counselor that abused him and abused dozens of kids before him. It was well known to Armo Kasus and Pfeifer. Romumu put this predator in the canteen when he was 25 and taking a summer break from law school. My friend was locked in that canteen overnight.

Stories go on and on. Very few come forward to protect shidduch interests and reputations. The yeshivas and camps cover it up. It's a tremendous inherent problem within our religion. A co-ed schools or camp that didn't preach so strongly absolute sexual restraint in my opinion would save Jewsh lives. How does this not, atleast at this point, justify sending my son or daughter to Hafter, Ramaz, Frish, Levi, Senica, Etc Etc Etc., ?

The response is not to got to Rabbonim and Dayanim. They have always ignored the problem. Maybee they don’t understand the lifetime of suffering that the abuse causes. Some of these kids are better off dead.
Please we have all heard the mikva warnings and other predator alerts.

I hope something is done. Someone pave the way for my child to get a proper "Yiddish" education without the enjoined dangers.

Another TT Parent:

We are not accusing either Kolko or Margulies of possessing a "right mind." No one in their right mind either molests children or protects a child molester.

We merely state the facts as they occurred. If push comes to shove we will provide audio evidence.

Consider for a moment that both Kolko and Margulies realized immediately they were speaking with people having knowledge of Kolko’s guilt.

In fact, Kolko asked, “did I do anything to you?” before the discussion continued.

We are not reckless people. This campaign was carefully thought out and built upon a foundation of fact. As wily a character as Margulies is, the reality remains that he is disadvantaged by having to lie to the public. Most people can discern between truth and lies.

Once again, all we are asking is that Kolko leave our children. They must not be subjected to a child molester in the classroom.

Sexual abuse is happening all over in the yeshivas, especially dormitories. The administration sweeps it under the rug. Their answer is it is normal for this to happen...

boog said...

former yeshiva boy;

Thanks for your first-person account.

You are correct. The victim is made to feel guilty and ashamed for bringing charges. There is absolutely nobody to talk to. The Rabbonim are a joke and beholden to the yeshivas. Parents have reputations to maintain and shidduchim to do with their kids and are therefore mortified about coming forward. There is no support group to help them withstand the onslaught.

This is why UOJ's current attempt is vital and needsto succeed. Break down this barrier with one example, kolko, and other predators will be served notice that they are next. This entire culture of under the rug sweeping will come to an end and long overdue reforms regarding the hiring of Yeshiva personnel can be put into place.

UOJ, I am sorry for the pain and suffering you were so obviously subjected to in your years in the sad yeshiva system that needs to be rectified.

Anyway, aside from your terrible yeshiva experience, I'm sorry about the obviously bad business deals or problems getting into MaNaVu (rocks) years ago or whatever it is that got you so upset that you feel this is necessary. As for Margo, I don't know what he did to you personally but who doesnt have something against him...

Thank you for your comment. Your story about Kolko is consistent with what we know.

If nothing else, it drives home the point that a molester will find ways to spend intimate time with his potential victims. Some parents delude themselves that they can protect their children from Kolko by warning them. Your experience shows otherwise.

We are glad your experience with Kolko stopped short of actual abuse.

1) who made you god all of a sudden?
even if these allegations are true it is pure loshon hora-
and please dont give me that excuse that loshon hora doesnt apply here beacuse who are you to pasken ?
and this is deffiately isnt the proper way way of dealing with such issues but according to your website there are a few rabbonim that you hold of did you conult them first?? it is also definately loshon hora the 2 ""humurous" articles making fun of R kolko that you have posted on your site (i would give a link but dont want to spread even more loshon hora)

2) i think the most pathetic part of you is the fact that your hiding yourself . what are afraid of??
by the way i hope your lawyers told you that this is all illegal
. and what is your true agenda ??? the alleged stories dealing with rabbi kolko happened more than 20 years ago what all of a sudden happened that caused a moron like you to try and mess up his name again? isnt it true that a group of rabbonim all agreed to let r' kolko continue his rabbi position years ago??? and why would r margolious, according you, a evil business man let r kolko stay in his school if he actually thought the stories were true it wouldnt be good for business would it???
also are there any "statute of limitations " that apply here???

3) i know first hand unfortionately about real stories of molestion ...rachmana l'ztalan
and i know r' kolko and none of these sories are true and if they where chos vshalom are true
who are to go and mess his name up

please get a life.... ASAP

He's married with children and was leading a seemingly normal life. One of his victims came forward with the story and the cat is now out of the bag. He admitted to molesting 200 kids over the years, and he knows his life is pretty much over. Needless to say this has been kept hush-hush.

Interestingly enough, most of the boys he admitted molesting, denied it! That really illustrates how this issue is dealt with in the Orthodox community and how difficult it is to get a pedophile away from our children - victims are even denying it! It also answers the pervasive question posed by Kolko defenders on this blog, as to why we haven't heard of many cases that are more recent. "He must've stopped," they imagine...
Only in the "frum" world....

And, by the way, I wasn't the first to say that.

The Torah does!

So, unless you believe in another faith - which is okay if you do - don't tell me that "I am paiting myself into a vinkel" or that I am "insecure."

And, to the gntleman who said we should respond "logically", let me say this: When dealing with UOJ and those of his ilk, there IS NO LOGIC. YOu can't talk intelligently to them because they have no respect for themselves, let alone other people, let alone gedolim and respected members of the frum community.

THESE PEOPLE ARE INSANE. Let us call a spade a spade.

Unfortunately, their blogs have given them a voice and assisted them in attracting attention.

BUT THAT DOES NOT MAKE THEM ANY MORE CREDIBLE.

They are bitter and ready to do anything - EXCEPT PUT THEIR NAME AND FACE BEHIND A STORY.

They curse out gedolim, make accusations against rabbonim, criticize virtually every mosad - without substantiating anything they write.

It is ludicrous that they are given the time of day.

We can, and we will, put these guys away, and we will stand for kevod Shomayim and kavod haTorah.

Mr. Mavaser:

We do not owe Margulies anything, let alone the faces behind this campaign.

We will disclose who we are when we are at that point in our campaign. We have some distance to travel before we reach that stage and Margulies and Torah Temima will be long gone when we reach that point.

As to our credibility, those who know, know; and this includes Margulies.

Please relay the following to him:

Lipa:

To knowingly harbor a child molester is a crime. Despite your complicity in Kolko’s heinous atrocities, we gave you advance notice of the mailing and offered to withdraw it if you fired Kolko. You refused. We delivered.

Pay close attention to our message.

We do not want to escalate this unfortunate situation to the next level. We are proud of our heritage and suffer greatly when scandal hits our community.

Nonetheless, we will not sit idly by and allow you to hurt our children. The progression of this campaign it entirely up to you. We will stop when our children are safe from Kolko’s perversion. Not a moment sooner.

Your business will not survive our next move. Again; your business will not survive our next move.

All we ask of you is what you are morally and legally obligated to do. Fire Kolko the child molester.

We have given you a good life. We allowed you to prosper. Do not allow your arrogance to destroy what you have you have spent your life building. Child molesters do not belong in our yeshiva.

Lipa, do the right thing.


Mr. Mavasar, please try to calm Margulies down and reason with him. Yeshiva Torah Temima is poised on a precipice. His actions over the next few days will determine its fate. We do not seek its demise; we merely want our children to be safe in their classrooms.

Lastly, when he asks what our next move is, tell him "פרטים יבוא"

Thank you.

Were you molested by kolko and are you now or have you ever been a TT parent?

Shabbat Shalom

Respectfully, some questions are best left unanswered for now.

letter supporter;

I don't think answering my question will give your ID away and may indeed add legitimacy to your support of UOJ and this venture.

Letter Supporter said...

Boog:

True. However, the veracity of our claims will be undisputed long before we disclose our identities.

In any case, our group includes people who answer yes to your questions.

Let me tell you something you sick mamzer. I know Rav Moshe Meiselman, and he is a tremendous talmid chacham, and a tremendous human being. The only one with blood on his hands is you. Rosha merusha v'machteh es harabim. You're pitiful.

Anonymous said...

UOJ I know who you are and, if you move foward I will identify you. Let's see how you react when I send out a mailing with your name and, number.

Glad you finally learned how to spell Torah Temimah.

Former Yeshiva Boy - It looks like you've been to many of the same mainstream yeshivas and camps like many of the rest of us. I, for one, have never experienced this so-called "overwhelming aura of homosexuality and sexual deviation".

Ever wonder why all these people seem to be drawn to you????

Michelle said...

All these people who have issues with this blog should just not read it. That's all. Leave the guy alone. He's gonna continue to persue what he chooses. Blog comments won't change anything.

And if this indeed is true, this man must pay for what he has done. OUJ just wants Justice. What's wrong with that?

Anonymous said...

Michelle,

Someone who wants justice doesn't need to make a public display like this - this is just someone who wants attention.

There are ways to pursue true justice. This is not one of them.

after years of frustration and being "ignored" by the "system" maybe this is the only way to awaken the public to the real problem at hand...

StillHurting said...

Former Yeshiva Boy - I feel your pain... I've experianced the same in many different "Yeshivas". For those that dont understand, be happy that you have never experianced "yeshivashe kiruv"! As far as kolko and company, why would so many kids be making up these stories if it werent true? These factual stories have been going around for 20 years! The fact that margo has bullied and threatened anybody that has come forward all these years should not disuade you all from the truth... kolko is a child molester!!! He abused children thru his entire career, there is no reason beleive that he is not doing it now to YOUR child!!! Why protect him?? Why protect his protector margo?? protect the (our) innocent children who like many of us will live a life of pain and suffering because of these beasts!

Remember Mondrowitz, the Gerrer Chosid Ph.D?

Many rabbonim and leaders in Ger as well as outside Ger knew about this scumbag but said Nada for years. How many boys are scarred and ruined for life because of this "frum" bastard?

He was finally reported and got his sorry ass on a flight to Israel one step ahead of the cops.

GER STILL HAS NOT LEARNED A LESSON i.e. A.M. LEIZEROWITZ who heads the gerrer yeshiva in brooklyn and gets off on his students of 13-17 years of edge. and these are extreme shomer habris bastards.
