Physical abuse rampant in Haredi schools

A former Satmar member wrote at The Forward about recent discoveries of a Haredi teacher videotaped committing vile assault on a student:
When I watched the video clip that surfaced this week of a Hasidic teenager lying on the floor and crying in pain from the blows of his rebbe, I was shaken, but not surprised. Sadly, this kind of sadism-disguised-as-discipline is all too common in Hasidic Yeshivas.

When I was in school in Williamsburg, our rebbe would punish kids by forcefully placing their little fingers at the metal desk, and closing the drawer on them, so that the kid would yell and scream as the metal tightened its grip on the soft flesh of the fingers, leaving dark purple marks.

Another rebbe let loose on a child. He kicked him forcefully in the gut and all over his body. He hit the child’s face multiple times until the skin was fractured. His marks lasted around two weeks.

Later, another rebbe hit a child with such brutality and force, his head cracked open and a stream of blood started flowing from beneath his yarmulke. The rebbe kept going. When he was done, he called Hatzalah to deal with the mess.

Such stories are far from uncommon, and I didn’t even witness the worst. From my friends I would often hear much worse stories. Children who got beaten so badly they required medical treatment. Rebbes who would dole out beatings as if in some third world country - 100 or 150 lashings with a belt for some minor misbehavior. And when the rebbe was in a particularly bad mood, he would use the metal buckle instead of the softer leather.

[...] The sins for which you would get punished would vary. It could be as ridiculous as not knowing the translation of an Aramaic word in the Talmud, or it could be that you talked in class without permission. The rebbe didn’t have to report back and there was little to no oversight as to how rebbes discipline their children.

Rebbes would often pick at the most vulnerable kids; children from broken or poor families whose parents would be either powerless or clueless in the face of abuse.
This just shows how abominable their education system really is, and the worst part is that in the US, they clearly use their political influence to ensure authorities won't take action against them. Well, it's got to stop, ditto how the Democrats have blame to shoulder for allowing this repugnant cult to run amok just like they do the Islamists.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
