Shame on Yeshiva University Silence on Norman Lamm: The Jewish Joe Paterno?
I, Ronn Torossian, am simply in shock that no one in the community has spoken out about the Joe Paterno of the Jewish community, Rabbi Norman Lamm. Yes, I know Lamm is someone who has done so much for the Jewish community – but he has admitted that he was aware of sexual misconduct of staffers and did nothing about it.
He didn’t report it to the authorities – and allowed the teachers to teach children (pass the buck). Is this not the same (or worse) than what made Penn State fire Joe Paterno?
Rabbi Norman Lamm, who was President of YU at the time of these incidents (and is now Chancellor), said “This was before things of this sort had attained a certain notoriety.”Rabbi: Get your head out of the chumash – child molestation has always “had certain notoriety.” And you educate Jewish youth?
Fire Norman Lamm now. Jewish community step up and demand that anyone who turns a blind eye to molesters is fired. Where are you?
