WARNING-ATTENTION ALL FRUM JEWS!

Mr. Margulies:

As I see it you have 24 hours to make a decision which may determine the fate of your life's work.

Door number 1: fire the chronic child molester Kolko and you get to die with your business somewhat intact.

Door number 2: assume you can threaten and buy your way out of this looming disaster and you leave this world in absolute and utter disgrace.

I'm here to inform you that if Kolko is not out of Torah Temima today, you will be facing your Waterloo, Hiroshima and Nagasaki all rolled into one nice neat package. No more dinners, no more $50,000.00 club members and no more board members to take advantage of.

Don't be stupid, you have too much to lose. We have allowed you to build up a big business in our community.We should have ousted you years ago; you are HUMAN TINAF!

All we ask is that you not subject our children to a molester. Do the right thing. Get rid of this child molester today.

You never had to deal with a force as powerful as this; WE WILL CONTINUE OUR EFFORTS UNTIL OUR GOAL IS MET, NO BUYING YOUR WAY OUT OF THIS SCANDAL!

The letter below is being mailed TONIGHT to thousands of Orthodox Jewish households in Boro Park, Kensington and Flatbush. I am asking my readers to please copy the letter from this post and e-mail it to as many people as possible. Together, we can put a stop to this depravity.

WARNING-ATTENTION ALL OF JUDAISM

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.

Mr. Margulies, read this news flash very seriously.

Attorney: Spokane Church Offers Settlement
By NICHOLAS K. GERANIOS-Associated Press/AP Online02/01/2006 5:43 PM


SPOKANE, Wash. - The Roman Catholic Diocese of Spokane, which filed for bankruptcy after being barraged with sex-abuse lawsuits, has offered a $45.7 million settlement to 75 people who say they were molested by priests.

Bishop William Skylstad publicly apologized Wednesday to the victims "for the terrible wrongs inflicted on you in the past." He urged Catholics to accept the proposed settlement, which will require money from individual parishes.

"To those of you who say this settlement will be a burden, I would say that this scandal is a burden we can no longer afford not to resolve," said Skylstad, head of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Plaintiffs' lawyer James Stang said a committee representing alleged victims voted Tuesday night to recommend that the offer be accepted.

Under the proposed settlement, the diocese agreed not to describe the plaintiffs as "alleged victims" anymore and to give them the opportunity to address parishes and write about their experiences in the diocesan newspaper. Skylstad also would go to each parish where abuse occurred to identify the offending clergymen, Stang said.

Skylstad also agreed to support the abolition of statutes of limitations on sex crimes, write letters to abused individuals and their families and add two members of a victims group to a board that reviews clergy sex abuse complaints, Stang said.

Some of those who would benefit financially from the offer said the diocese's other concessions were more important.

"Civil litigation was the only way to hold them accountable," abuse victim Mike Corrigan said at a news conference Wednesday. "Most of us would rather they went to jail than get money out of them."

Stang said the offer must be approved by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court and by the victims individually within 120 days.

The settlement would cover all those who have already sued the diocese. There is no provision for anyone who might bring a claim in the future.

The diocese filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2004, citing claims by abuse victims totaling about $77 million against assets of about $11 million.

Two other U.S. dioceses - Tucson, Ariz., and Portland, Ore. - have filed for bankruptcy because of sex abuse claims. A $22.2 million settlement was reached last summer in Tucson, while a federal judge in Portland ruled last month that trials involving as many as 100 plaintiffs could move forward.

I have opinion one way or the other but I get the feeling this is more about Margolis than Kolko.

OUJ said;

"There are no gedolim as long as they look the other way when there are gangsters running yeshivas."

Are "ALL" gedolim across the world responsible to inquire into each and every yeshivah across the world to see who is running them??

Yet OUJ will declare that if there are some gangsters, then there are no gedolim.

Is that the way we can "expect the next generation of children to become b'nei Torah?"

A daily lesson from the Chofetz Chaim: A Daily Companion/Mesorah Publications:
SEFER CHOFETZ CHAIM —
Previously, the Chofetz Chaim explained the true source of this ongoing exile. He stated that the sins of loshon hora and sinas chinam (baseless hatred) of past generations would not cause Hashem (G-d) to withhold His Presence from us. It is our own sins that keep Hashem from drawing near to us, despite our constant prayers.
The Chofetz Chaim says that if we analyze our sins, there is only one that can be so powerful as to cause Hashem not to redeem His beloved children — the sin of loshon hora. It is simple logic. If loshon hora, and the sinas chinam which it caused, had the negative spiritual power to destroy the Beis HaMikdash, then certainly it has the power to prevent the rebuilding of the Beis HaMikdash.
The Chofetz Chaim brings many sources to support this point. In Parashas Shemos, the Torah relates the suffering of the Jews in Egypt. The Torah states that Moshe, who had grown up in Pharaoh’s palace, went out among his people and shared their pain and suffering. In his wanderings among the Jews, he encountered the notorious pair, Dasan and Aviram who informed on him after he killed an Egyptian who was attacking a Jew. Moshe said, “Now the matter is known” (Shemos 2:15). The Midrash interprets this to mean, “Now I understand why the Jewish people are in this terrible exile. It is because they speak loshon hora.”
The Chofetz Chaim also cites the episode of the Spies who were sent to scout out the Land of Israel in preparation for the Jews’ conquest of it. Their negative report was loshon hora against Hashem’s precious Holy Land. The Jews wept over this report on the night of Tishah B’Av (the ninth of Av), and it was this sin that ultimately led to the destruction of the first Beis HaMikdash (Holy Temple). Hashem declared, “You wept in vain. I will establish this night as a night of weeping for all generations.”
The Chofetz Chaim provides further proof. The Torah states “Cursed is he who attacks his friend secretly” (Devarim 27:24). As Rashi explains, this is a reference to loshon hora. A person who speaks loshon hora is cursed. The Talmud (Arachin 15b) goes further, comparing loshon hora to a denial of G-d.
The Chofetz Chaim then offers his final point. The Midrash (Devarim Rabbah 6,14) states, “Hashem says, In this world, because there is loshon hora among you, I withdrew My Presence from among you.” Like a letter directly from Hashem – clear and unambiguous.
The message of this statement is incredible. The Beis HaMikdash has not been rebuilt, the Shechinah (Divine Presence) is not in our midst, because of the forbidden speech which we utter.

countdown said...

TWO

ok, its not quite yet TWO, but im tired of waiting till midnight.

TAM said...

so according to your interpertation, if all of us were molesters, as long as we didnt say loshon hara, the beis hamikdash would be rebuilt?

boog said...

Longest 48 hours imaginable. Where is Jack Bauer when you need him?

Letter Supporter said...

Loshon Hora Man:

Your point? Are you suggesting that the saintly Chofetz Chaim would allow a pervert to molest the children in his community? Are you suggesting that the saintly Chofetz Chaim would sit quietly while the local yeshiva hired this molester. Are you suggesting that the saintly Chofetz Chaim would allow a molester to spend his life around children?

He would shout at the top of his lungs. Save the children! Keep this monster away from our children!

Read the whole sefer. Don’t distort the teachings of this great man.

So, what is your point?

David Kelsey said...

UOJ,

Only on your blog could a letter attacking a community's reaction to accusations of child molestation turn into a mob's demand for you to clarify your stand on Gedolim.

I would personally like you to clarify your stand on the existence of the Tooth Fairy BEFORE we discuss the issue of child molesting. Only then will I decide if this issue is something worth considering.

Anonymous said...

David: Good point and well put.

But, I disagree on one point.

These guys would crawl out from under their rocks no matter which site posted the letter.

Anonymous said...

Lakewood Learner:

Has the Vaad started condoning child molesting by Rabeim?

UOJ may be bitter, but Kolko and Margolies are engaging in something that any civilized society deems intolerable.

Doesn't this put a damper on your air of superiority over the Goyim? They expose and expel their molesters. You defend ours.

Sounds like UOJ has something to be bitter about after all.

there has ben no evidence provided that these accusations are true---i think uoj gets real annoyed when people question his real intentions which seem to be to attack frumkeit in general.Margulies is alot tougher than uoj and he will soon proove it

Un-Orthodox Jew said...

David,
How are you my friend?
I made my opinions pretty clear on my post of the "Asher Yatzer Gedolim".
Yes, there are people who have an enormous amount of talmudic knowledge, that does not a gadol make.The yeshiva world would like to make them into super, infallible people.
They are mere humans, some smart, some ass stupid, and most fall somewhere in between.

TT Parent:

If you choose to leave your child in a yeshiva whose owner knowingly employs a child molester, you are derelict in your duty as a parent.

We believe that people should know the truth. If they choose to roll the dice with their children’s lives, there is little we can do to help them.

If the statute of limitations gets lifted, Kolko will be sent to prison and your children will be protected from your bad judgment. Otherwise, they are at your mercy.

TT Talmid said...

For teh record, i attended Tiorah Temimah for close to fifteen years.

I may nto have liked Margulies, but what does that heva to do with made-up stories about Rabbi Kolko?

I KNOW RABBI KOLKO FOR TWENTY YEARS.

I had him as a rebbi, principal, head counselor. THIS IS ALL AN ABSOLUTE FABRICATION.

I SPOKE TO PEOPLE WHO WORK FOR THE YATED AND FOR THE JEWISH PRESS.

THEY BOTH SAID THAT ALTHOUGH THEY EHARD ABOUT THE LETTER, THERE IS NO WAY THEY WILL PRINT IT IN A MILLION YEARS.

WITH GETTING INTO THE MAINSTREAM FRUM PRESS, YOU GUY'S DON'T STAND A CHANCE WITH THIS WHALE OF STORY AND THESE RIDICULOUS ACCUSATIONS.

YOU CAN BLOG FROM TODAY TO TOMORROW.

AND A LAWYER TOLD ME THAT THEY ARE ANALYZING UNORTHODOX ON CHARGES OF DEFAMATION.

MAYBE SANDHOUSE AND HIS BUDDIES CAN GET THEIR LAWYER TO DO SOME WORK.

WHAT A JOKE.

WE know unorthodox is BITTER ABOUT HIS EXPERIENCES IN TORAH TEMIMAH.

THIS IS HIS WAY OF GETTING BACK.

IT IS QUITE A LOW WAY.

IT IS A LITTLE LOWER THAN A PRANK CALL, YOU THINK?

UNORTHODOX, FROM YOUR COMMENTS, WE CAN TELL HOW BITTER YOU ARE.

YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.
YOU SIT IN BED THINKING, "HOW CAN I GET BACK AT MARGULIES AND KOLKO?'

"WAIT, LET ME MAKE UP A SICK SCANDAL.
"LET ME TRY TO EMBARRASS HIM.
" LET ME TRY TO DEFAME HIM."

IT IS A NICE TRY, BUT YOU HAD BETTER THINK OF SOMETHING REALISTIC.

WHY DON'T YOU HAVE THE GUTS TO GO DOWN TO TORAH TEMIMAH AND SPEAK TO MARGO AND KOLKO FACE TO FACE.

BECAUSE YOU ARE A WIMP.

SO YOU HIDE BEHIND A BLOG AND RUN A ENTIRELY FABRICATED STORY.

GO DOWN TO TT, HAVE IT OUT FACE TO FACE, AND THEN COME BACK HERE.

DON'T BE SUCH A BIGSHOT SITTING BEHIND YOUR KEYBOARD.

PUT YOUR FACE BEHIND THIS STORY.

IF YOU ARE SO CONFIDENT, WHY ARE YOU HIDING YOUR IDENTITY?

Welcome back.

Why should we meet with Kolko and Margulies? We don't want their payoffs. Nor do we want to listen to any more of Margulies' threats.

The sorry state of journalistic integrity at the Yated and the Jewish Press is what makes this mailing absolutely necessary.

If this letter doesn't get Kolko away from our children, we are going to cooperate with the secular print media. If that doesn't get Kolko away from our children, we will cooperate with the local TV stations. If that doesn't get Kolko away from our children we will cooperate with national TV. If that doesn't get Kolko away from our children we are going to the Brooklyn DA, the NYS Attorney General and the Feds.

So tell me, why should we meet with a chronic child molester and his protector?

SO SEND OUT YOUR STUPID MAILING.

SEE IF ANYONE WILL CARE.

YOU MIGHT AS WELL SEND OUT A MAILING THAT ME, OCEAN PARKWAY, DID IT.

I MEAN, GIVE IT UP.

IT'S A LIE, YOU KNOW IT, UNORTHODOX WANTS REVENGE.

UNFORTUANTELY, THAT'S WHAT HAPPOENS TO THOSE WHO WEREN'T SUCCESSFUL IN THE CONTEMPORARY YESHIVA SYSTEM AND HAVE TO TAKE REVENGE.

THE WHOLE LIFE PEOPLE LIKE UNORTHODOX WALK AROUND FEELING BITTER AND DON'T KNOW HOW TO DEAL WITH IT.

HERE IS SOME ADVICE: GET A THERAPIST!

IT IS MORE EFFECTIVE THAN MAKING UP STORIES.

GO WASTE YOUR MONEY ON A MAILING.

WHO ARE YOU MAILING IT OUT TO?

TO FLATBUSH AND BORO PARK?
SEE IF THEY CARE.

TO THE FIVE TOWNS?

THEY DON'T KNOW RABBI K.

TO OUT OF TOWN? TO PASSAIC? TO MONSEY? TO LAKEWOOD?

WHERE EXACTLY?

NO ONE WILL LOSE ANY SLEEP.

IF YOU THINK THE NEWS STATIONS ARE RUNNING TO YOU, THEN WHY DON'T YOU PICK UP THE PHONE RIGHT NOW AND DO SO.

YOU DON'T HAVE A FACE, YOU DON'T HAVE A NAME (EXCEPT SANDHOUSE, BUT HE'S BEEN BASHMUTZED AND DISCREDITED FIVE MILLION TIMES) SO WHY DO YOU THINK ANYONE IS GOING TO LISTEN TO YOU AND NOT HANG UP ON YOU?

UNORTHODOX, YOU GET ME SICK.

AND APPARENTLY YOUR HASKAMA IS NOT WORTH MUCH MORE THAN YOUR BLOG, BASED ON THE CONTENT OF YOUR WRITING AND YOUR EVIL, EVIL GOALS.

CUT IT OUT, GET A LIFE, AND MAYBE YOU'LL START FEELING GOOD ABOUT YOURSELF.

YOU SIT ALONE, DEPRESSED, FOLLOWING YOUR OWN PATHETIC BLOG, TRYING TO PLOT YOUR NEXT MOVE.

IN MY DICTIONARY, THAT SPELLS "LO YUTZLACH".

SOMEONE WHO NEVER MADE IT, AND PROBABLY NEVER WILL.

ANOTHER LOST NESHAMA.....

INDEED, QUITE A SHAME.

WHAT WILL YOU TELL YOUR GRANDCHILDREN, IF YOU EVER HAVE ANY?

THAT YOU SPENT YEARS WASTING YOUR TIME TARGETING INNOCENT PEOPLE AND MAKING UP STORIES?

I'M SURE THEY'LL HAVE LOADS OF RESPECT FOR YOU.

WILL YOU TALK TO THE WITH THE SAME NIVUL PEH YOU USE ON HERE?

OH, WHY AM I STILL WRITING./....

The posts above are indicative of the people we are dealing with in this campaign for justice. They and their ilk have infested our community with their corrupt, cynical anything goes substitute for our sacred traditions.

This is Margulies at his best. Instead of acknowledging a serious problem and nipping it in the bud, he attacks the victims. Midas Sedom.

UOJ, save all these posts, they make an excellent footnote to the unfolding saga. The name of the book is “HOW THE PROTECTOR WENT DOWN WITH THE MOLESTER.”

Margulies, do you recall why the pig has a special place in the torah? Allow me to remind you. The pig presents himself as kosher. Look at me, the pig says. I have the signs of a kosher animal. The torah teaches us that this represents a special kind of evil, one that we must be ever vigilant of. Evil wrapped in a false cloak of holiness.

In short, Margulies and his crew are showing their true colors, and the color I see is that of a squealing pig.

Margulies, are you so out of touch with the values you profess, you can’t see how K’neged HaTorah your actions are? Are you so out of touch with common decency, you don’t understand that naming victims causes them grief on top of the horror they already experienced at the hands of Kolko.

Or do you simply not care? Is it in fact true that Torah Temima is nothing more than a business to you? Are you in fact as soulless as you appear?

Lipa Margulies, we believe in the innate good of every Jew, the Pintele Yid. It’s not too late for you to repent. Do the right thing before this spirals out of everyone’s control. Do Teshuva before it’s too late.

Ocean Parkway said...

LIKE I SAID, LETTER-WRITER AND UNORTHDOX ARE BOTH BURNT OUT AND BITTER ABOUT THEIR FAILURES IN LIFE, SO THEY GO AFTER POPULAR PEOPLE OR STORNG PEOPLE.

IT IS OKAY.

I DON'T PERSONALLY CARE FOR MARGULIES BUT TO GO AFTER KOLKO IS INSANE.

DON'T TELL ME WHAT IS INDICATIVE BEC. YOU DON'T KNOW WHO I AM, BUT WE YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE.

WE KNOW WHAT GROUP YOU BELONG TO AND WE KNOW WHAT YOUR MOTIVE IS.

PEOPLE LIKE YOU NEVER WIN.

THEY SIT AND SULK AND WASTE THEIR LIVES.

THEY MAKE UP MOLESTING STORIES AND CONTRIVE ALL TYPES OF PERVERTED TALES TO BRING SOMEONE DOWN.

You are typical, unsophisticated, yeshivish drek (the Bob Grant mention confirms this) that will over-argue everything just to "prove" a point which you yourself hardly believe. Grow up!

You've posted on this blog before -I recognize the writing style and tone.

To mention a victim of Kolko's on this blog is beyond low and can never be forgiven, so don't bother klopping al-cheit this Yom Kippur. I pity you.

Rabbi Yidi Kolko sexually molested UOJ in Camp Agudah. Rabbi Yidi Kolko sexually molested UOJ in Yeshiva Karlin Stolin. Rabbi Yidi Kolko sexually molested UOJ in Camp MaNaVu. Rabbi Yidi Kolko spends his life around UOJ . And UOJ just loves all the attention.

Keep mentioning the victim's name and I GUARANTEE you'll be seriously hurt in more ways than you can imagine. Your identity WILL be uncovered - I swear to this. You don't know who you're messing with pal.

trying to be rational said...

uoj
why arent you editing the alleged victim name out?

also
if everyone knew about this claim, why did parents let their children be taught by the man.
If i was a parent, and i heard such a rumor, i would insist they move my child to a different class, or get guarentees from the principal that they would watch the man.
For example,
in Toras Emes (when it was in boro park) there were some rebbeim a little old to still be around, and they didnt have patience with the kids, so they yelled, slapped a little here and there.
Well the parents complained, and the principal assured them that he would visit the class daily and sit in, to remind the teacher, they are on probation.

Was a similiar arrangement made here or was it basically the parents who didnt know about the rumor who had their children there.

Or is it as some of the commentors claim, the parents knew and didnt care.
(i just don think this last scenario makes sense. 20 years ago, anyone having anything to do with TT heard the rumors.)

The victim went public years ago and was painted as a loony.
You obviously don't know Margulies at all.
He paid off people, threatened his staff to back him up and paid off bais din.
He makes Al Capone look like Mother Goose.
Yes, there were many people that pulled their kids out.
After a while people said, well, if Kolko is still there, well, maybe it's not true.......
So life goes on...and the assholes in the Jewish community of Brooklyn have more kids burned at the stake...
Toras Emes was run by a very decent man; TT is run by a monster, mobster, sheigetz, thief, minuvel...and that's before I start getting really angry.

Rational:

Allow me to fill you in on the routine. When your son reaches Rabbi Yidi Kolko’s class, you do one of three things.

1. Play ostrich and dismiss 3 decades of persistent accusations;

2. Confront Kolko and warn him if he touches your son you will (fill in the blank); or

3. Or you remove your son from Yeshiva Torah Temima.

I have good friends who have taken each course of action.

It never ceases to amaze me when people I consider intelligent, caring parents take option two. If you suspect Kolko is a child molester, how can you leave your child in a classroom with him? Oh don’t worry, one parent told me, I warned my son about him. He knows to tell me immediately if Kolko touches him. There is something amiss in the Torah Temima world.

Are you threatening suicide?

Before you jump, tell your friend Margulies that the authorities have received copies of the postings and are looking into him, Kolko and TT as we speak.

So Mr. Parkway, either jump or run for cover, lest Margulies fall on you when he jumps.

Final Call said...

Mr. Margulies:

As I see it you have 24 hours to make a decision which may determine the fate of your life’s work.

Door number 1: fire the chronic child molester Kolko and you get to die with your business somewhat intact.

Door number 2: assume you can threaten and buy your way out of this looming disaster and you leave this world in absolute and utter disgrace.

I’m here to inform you that if Kolko is not out of Torah Temima today, you will be facing your Waterloo, Hiroshima and Nagasaki all rolled into one nice neat package. No more dinners, no more $50,000.00 club members and no more “Board Members” to take advantage of.

Don’t be stupid, you have too much to lose. We have allowed you to build up a big business in our community. All we ask is that you not subject our children to a molester. Do the right thing. Get rid of this child molester today.

There are people IN FLATBUSH that portray themselvs as Roshei Yeshiva's with "long grey beards" and frocks, and up-hats who are nebach very sick?
There is one such person now who has a yeshiva (actually two of them) in Flatbush who is a CROOK.He robbed his mosod to the bone and hasent been paying his rabeiim in MONTHS. He fired his principle a few weeks ago, he watches PORN all day long in his office.

Letter Supporter said...

TT Parent:

I don’t understand. You now know of a serious accusation being levied against a Rebbi in your son’s yeshiva. If true, your son is spending his days in close proximity to a sexual predator who has in the past successfully avoided detection while committing his heinous acts. Once he makes his move on your son, there is no turning back. Regardless of the outcome, your child is scarred for life. He will never forget that an authority figure, a man perceived as a role model, attempted the unspeakable. He may have difficulty trusting people for the rest of his life. He may transmit these fears to his children.

In fact, your son may be ashamed to discuss it with you. He may carry this heavy burden with him for years.

Has it occurred to you that your children or some of our friends’ children may be carrying this burden with them already.

If you live in Brooklyn, you will most likely get the letter in a few days. Please don’t wait. You know the contents of the letter. Now that you have heard the accusation, do your research. Your children’s future may well depend upon your efforts at finding the truth.

I think Klor's father is at Kingsbay. I don't think Simcha Klor himself runs it - only Ruach Chaim. Am I wrong? In any event I am hearing more and more that this piece of shit is a piece of shit.

Built a shmaltzy house but doesn't pay the teachers. Don't worry though, he probably won't have a Yeshiva anymore come September.

new name? simcha - capone - klor.

gross said...

Rabbonim? Surely you jest! Rabbonim are too busy stockpiling gelt for their own mosdos! Who would get involved? Maybe you know someone who will - I don't

If I were member of the parent body, I would organize an emergency meeting with the parents. Many parents don't want to start pulling their kids out mid-year. It'll be tought to find a place to put them now.

In any event, there is a more urgent issue at hand. Unless Klor is sticking his hands where they really don't belong, all attention must be focused on the tyrants at TT.

Your issue will be dealt with accordingly - rest assured!

klor basher said...

klor is an easy fix.
get an irs audit on his case. they will pick up on the stealing quickly.

tt parent said...

Letter supporter:

Until someone chooses to stand behind these accusations publicly, and not anonymously, you have people being publicly named (RK and RM) by web bloggers hiding behind anonyimity who purport to represent victims but these web bloggers refuse to identify themselves.

How do we find persons who went to Camp Agudah to ask about these accusations ? Ma Novu ? What eras ?
Should i stop someone in shul and say reb yid can i ask you a question were you in agudah in the 70's or 80's or 90's or manovu or stolin can you tell me about these rumors. Get real. Not everyone is as connected and engaged in the latest gossip around town as you may think.

In reading the posted letter and these comments, no mention of RK and incidents at Silver Lake or TT. No mention of any incidents in the last generation or so-- 20--25 years.

Are you saying nothing happened in the last 20 years, or that you do not know or choose not to accuse ? Which is it.

I do not disagree that if there are credible accusations of incidents 20-25 years ago, that it is a serious matter that needs an appropriate resolution, but if UOJ is saying that nothing has occurred within the past 20-25 years, do we act immediately to remove children from a yeshiva based on solely web chatter.

I understand your point about character not changing, but unless people put their credibility on line saying here i am, I have reviewed the evidence and believe that there is sufficient stuff there that I make the accusation, saying it behind anonymity on the web or in an anonymous letter just does not do it.

Another TT Parent said...

I am a parent of 3 boys that went through TT from kindergarten thorugh Mesivta (one is still there in the Yeshiva Ketana). I also worked in Camp Ma-Na-Vu for a few summers (when R' Kolko was there).

I specifically requested that all 3 of my boys have R' Kolko as their Rebbe (instead of being in a parallel class). As a matter of fact, one of the primary reasons I selected TT for my boys was because R' Kolko was a Rebbe there. I could think of no better foundation for my boys than to have him as a Rebbe in Yeshiva Katana. I know R' Kolko now for more than 25 years going back to my Ma-Na-Vu days. He is one of the most upstanding and ehrliche people I know. Yes, I heard rumors in the past, but I never ever gave them a second thought. To say that I trust R' Kolko with my life is an understatement. Even more so, I trust him with my children. Something I value proably even more than my own life. I am willing to bet that the vast majority of past and current parents of TT talmidim would agree with me.

UOJ - For your information the Ma-Na-Vu Din Torah, which by the way R' Kolko won, was about the sale of the camp. It had absolutely nothing to do with anything you are suggesting. I KNOW THIS TO BE A FACT because I was privy to it.

Trust me when I say that I am a bit jaded myself by the whole Flatbush mentality and it's interpretation of "frum". But that doesn't condone what you are doing. Who died and made you g-d?

Letter Supporter said...

Another TT Parent:

“Yes, I heard rumors in the past, but I never ever gave them a second thought.”

Have there been any such rumors about the other rabeim in the yeshiva? Have there been any such rumors about you? Why Kolko and not them or you?

You say you trust Kolko with your and your children’s lives. This scares me beyond words. While you believe him to be innocent, we know him to be guilty.

There is a distinct difference between our position and yours. You were clearly not present when he molested children. Many of us were. We are not basing our campaign upon rumor or supposition but on first hand knowledge.

In short, our actions are based on our experiences with Kolko, your opinion of him is based on your experience with him. Sadly, there is no contradiction.

Thankfully, neither G-d nor we are dead. Accordingly we will continue this campaign until Kolko, who we know to be a child molester, is kept away from our children

Let me clarify. I used to daven in the same shul where one of the so-called victims used to daven (the one that has been named on your blog). That is where I heard talk about these ridiculous and unfounded rumors. I put as much credence into what he said as I put into what you say.

This thread is upsetting. I don't see why 30 year old allegations are important. Even if he did molest a couple of kids, big deal. It's a part of growing up. As a frum community we have much larger issues to focus on like metzitza b'peh - I am all about metzitza b'peh.

There is no way that Rabbi Kolko ever molested anyone. He happened to be rough on me - always making fun of my gums and teeth and calling me horse-tooth shoiteh - but he NEVER did anything inappropriate.

Anonymous said...

Posted By David

"I too was molested by Rabbi Yidi Kolko, both while a student in 7th and 8th grades in Yeshiva Torah V'daas and during those same summers whilst a camper in Camp Agudah.

I used to get rides to school in the mornings with Yidi whether in his old blue car or in his brand new brown car. At that time he lived on 56th Street between 14th & 15th Avenue, whilst I lived on 57th Street, between 15th and 16th Avenues. He was newly married at that time and his first child, a daughter, was also just born then.

Once we got to the Yeshiva on Ocean Parkway, which then was just off of Caton Road, he would park the car (either down the block from the Yeshiva, on the Ocean Parkway service road, or around the corner, I think it was East 5th Street, and ask me to come over and either sit beside him or sit on his lap. Sometimes he would move over to the passenger seat and would then sit me on his lap.

That's when he went fishing. He would insert his hands down the front of my pants and would begin to "search around" to say the least. At the same time he would pull me closer to himself, or would push himself forward againt myself, sometimes even pushing me into the stearing wheel, to the point that it hurt.

Unfortunately I didn't react or complain. The winters were cold and these rides saved on not having to walk all the way to 13th Avenue to wait for the bus (especially on Sunday mornings), you were able to leave your house later since you could always make the ride, and you saved a couple of cents, which was a lot in those days.

During one of those Sunday mornings whilst we were driving on Caton Avenue, whilst I was sitting in the front passenger seat - I almost always sat in the front passenger seat - we were involved in a terrible traffic accident where a car went through a red light and slammed into Yidi's car. B"H we all got out without a scratch.

In Camp Aguda it was the same, whether if he took me into the trees, or into his cabin, or even would take me out for a drive. FYI, during the summer of 1970 I had my bar mitzva in the camp.

I of course told my parents and tried on several times
to explain to them what I was going through, but they didn't want to believe me and my "stories", etc. My father at that time was a very well known and respected person in the Boro Park & Midwood communities and within the Yeshiva world. So I just shut up and let the molestation and perversion continue.

I also think that Yidi Kolko is a danger to the students, past and present in Yeshiva Tora Temimah and I feel that it is about time that the wall of silence be torn down.

Did I suffer as a result, probably. But I have made a life for myself and today am very happily married with 4 wonderful children".

Mr. Former Lakewood Cheder 2nd Grade Rebbi was obviuosly trying to be sarcastic and make fun of the seriousness of this all. Lucky for him, none of his children were sexually viloated - or were they? How can we ever know if everything is swept under the rug? The system in place doesn't allow for action in the event of sexual abuse! Doesn't this bother you, Mr. Jokester?

Former Lakewood Cheder 2nd grade rebbe said...

I think the term "sexually violated" is judgmental and unfair. If a rebbe effectionately touches a talmid's buttocks, is that "sexually violated"? Whenever a student of mine was hurt during recess, I insisted on seeing the place of injury, even if it was a so-called private area.

My talmidim were like my children, just as I hug and kiss my children so did I hug and kiss my talmidim. Just like my children sit on my lap, so did talmidim sit on my lap. And I considered it an important part of their emotional development to be able to be open with an adult. But people like you would probably see that as "sexually violated" which is sick.

So, you had discussions with him about his experiences with Kolko and determined to your satisfaction that his accusations were unfounded?

While I highly doubt this is the case, even if it is, you have never spoken with us. Doubt the veracity of the named victim to your hearts content. It doesn’t change the fact that we possess first hand knowledge of Kolko’s guilt as a child molester.

As an aside, the Din Torah discussed on this site was not the one you refer to. There was another Din Torah that dealt with Kolko’s molesting. He was not exonerated.

You sound like a reasonable guy and I’m sure you’ll follow the events as they unfold in the coming weeks. Should you change your mind as a result of these events, remember you owe the named victim an apology.

I LIVE AND LEARN IN LAKEWOOD WHERE THERE ARE HUNDREDS UPON HUNDREDS OF TORAH TEMimah alumni.

This week I approached about 150 people in all who either had Rabbi K. as a rebbi, head counselor etc.

All of them said that this story is absolutely ridiculous, that they have so much respect for rabbi K. and that it is all a scheme of jealousy and bitterness in their eyes.

They all said he is an upstanding man and a person they admire a lot.

That is 150 people who had him as a rebbi, principal, head counselor etc. during the last 20-25 years.

THIS STORY IS a fraud.

I am continuing my investigation here in Lakewood of all the TT talmidim I know.

So far not ONE has said anything that would lend credence to this fallacy.

AND that story David told sounds all nice and real - he even tried to throw in some facts to make it sound true - but he's a fraud too.

Half the details are inconsistent and he has the wrond details about where Rabbi K. lived.

This story is getting worn out,.

We need to open a discussion about Simcha Klor. There have been allegations here about him looking at porn all day, and being a child abuser. I have no idea if this is true. What I do know is true is that he is a pompous a$$. That all of the rabbonim in Flatbush are afraid of him. He fired his menahel for no reason other than that he was trying to get the rebbeim and teachers paid, who have not been paid since the beginning of this year. He will not answer anyone about where all of the money is going or why no one has been paid all year. He has lied about this to many people, and tried to intimidate the teachers to not talk about this with the parent body. The morale in the school is zero, the rebbeim are on edge, they need to feed their families, their credit card bills are piling up, with no end in sight. The boys come home, and tell of the topic of conversation of the day is "where are you going next year". I have called up the local yeshiva ketanas, and have been told that the phone is ringing off the hook with Ruach Chaim parents calling to register. I realize that this is not the same problem that TT is having with Kolko/Margulies, but this needs to be addressed too.

I live in Flatbush and I've heard about these allegations for quite some time. The issues UOJ has with Flatbush or Brooklyn in general are at times right on target and at times plain out ridiculous.

#1. Please leave Simcha Klor out of this discussion. There's a time and place for everything and it doesn't belong here (at all.) Who gives a darn if he looks at porn in his office the whole day ? He's not molesting anybody and he's doing what he needs to do in his own privacy. Let him jack off the whole day as long as it's not affecting anybody or their children. If you have a problem with him don't send your kids to his school or daven in his shul.

#2. While these allegations against Rabbi Kolko sound very realistic, I pray to G-D and hope we don't have another James Frey on our hands. The details provided by the alleged victim are very realistic and excruciating painful to read. Until a few trusted individuals group together and prove these allegations, they stay as allegations - not fact.

The United States Constitution guarantees that an accused is "..innocent until proven guilty.." in a court of law. Sending out letters that clearly state that Rabbi Kolko is guilty of these allegations is plain wrong. The letters will not prove anything at all and it'll look like a bad smear campaign. There has to be some creditability attached to these letters if you want the Brooklyn community to take you seriously.

I know it's a hard thing for people to dredge up their shamed past and go public with these allegations. Another problem is having one individual come forward with his allegations. I've been giving this some thought and have come up with a simple solution. The only way I see these alleged victims acquiring some credibility is by hiring a trusted attorney who will represent them before the community.

This solution will resolve the issue of the victims names becoming public as well as adding credibility since you're alleging that the attorney is representing a group instead of one individual.

I'm on a mailing list for three or four shuls in Flatbush and I receive tons of shnorrer letters each week. I checked my mail tonight and no letters have arrived. I think it was a smart move not to mail them out and I think my suggestion above will be a much better plan of action.

Flatbush Dude:

If you are in fact a Flatbush Dude, you will be getting the letter very soon and it will carry a California postmark, dated today as promised. We are serious people intent upon succeeding in a mission we deem crucial to the future of our community.

We are not making empty threats. Kolko will step down, the only question is when. We will keep on escalating our campaign until our children are safe in their classroom.
