Hasidic rabbi and counselor Nechemya Weberman is being accused of 88 counts of sexually abusing a minor by a now 17-year-old girl from Brooklyn.

At the age of 12, the victim was sent to see the rabbi after several visits to her school’s principal’s office resulting from her wearing tights that were deemed to be too thin.

“You had to wear tights that are very thick so there’s no way anybody can see your legs,” she said. “I was sent to the principal’s office every day because my tights weren’t thick enough.”

Remembering how she was sexually abused: “I wanted to die rather than live with myself. I didn’t know how to fight. I was numb.”

Her own parents even brought her to a rabbinical court in hopes of getting their own daughter to drop the charges on their rabbi. “When you think about it,” her lawyer argued, the girl’s parents “were actually paying the defendant to have sex with their daughter,” and he did, “over and over again.”

Other relatives, however, are only here to support: “The truth is shining through,” Goldie Gold, the alleged victim’s aunt, says. “She was very brave, very courageous.”

In his defense, Weberman’s lawyer says that the abuse is made up and being used as a way of getting back at the rabbi for telling the girl’s parents that she had a boyfriend.

“Vengeance and revenge against Nechemya Weberman,” stated Weberman’s lawyer, “and through this, to bring down the entire community that either supported him, or of which he was a part.”

Somehow we here at Elite find it hard to believe that this 17-year-old girl wants to bring down the entire Hasidic Jewish faith. We’ll know sooner or later for sure.
