R' Yoel Malik arrested for sexual abuse of yeshiva students

Wall Street Journal    A rabbi at a religious school in New York's ultra-orthodox Jewish community has been arrested on charges of sexually abusing students, a law enforcement official says.

The arrest of Yoel Malik, 33, of Brooklyn comes amid mounting pressure to report allegations of abuse within the insular, secretive community, the largest outside Israel, and barely a week after a respected religious counselor in the same sect was sentenced to 103 years in prison for sexually abusing a girl.

Both cases come from within the Satmar Hasidic sect, the official said.

Malik was taken into custody Wednesday after reports he may have brought two students to motels for sexual liaisons, said the official who was not authorized to speak publicly on the case and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. A third encounter was reported in a car. The official said the victims were all teenage boys, ages 14 to 16, and the encounters took place between March of last year and last week. [...]


  1. Guess they'll be collecting another million

  2. The yeshiva in question is Ohr Hameir where Malik was listed as rosh yeshiva.

    The Malik family are meyuchasim in Williamsburg. Yoel Malik wears veise zocken on Shabbos. He was picked up by police after he davened shachris in the same, small, Zaali affiliated shul used by Nechemya Weberman.

  3. its confirmed all a revenge fro this sick pinter guy ppl should look him up here is the info who he is

    1. Revenge what?????

      3 bucherim came to the police and reported that they were molested by Yoel Malik, i wouldn't say that they all made it up and this is some kind of conspiracy made up by Pinter for revenge.

      Yoily Malik is a sick pervert and a Molester! he forcefully had ... with more then one bucher in yeshiva, on the other hand Moshe Pinter never forced anyone, he was charged cuz the bucher was under 18.

      In the summer it was reported that Moshe Pinter was working for Yehivas Ohr Hameir, and that "8 years ago", he had consensual ... with a 17 year old, but since Moishy was 21 years old, and the victim was 17 years old - Under 18, he was forced to go for therapy - This info can easily be verified on E-Courts Online.

      He has since then went for professional help, and has changed drastically, i know him personally so i can vouch for that.

      The only role Moishy had in Yeshiva was to bring food for the bucherim, he wasn't an authority figure to anyone there, he never touched a bucher, cuz if yes these bucherim would come forwards with their story.

      What people need to understand is that by Malik there was force involved, and on top of that he was an authority figure that the parents entrusted with their children.

      So my friend this story is all about what Malik did recently not what Pinter did 8 years ago !


  4. Before the Yeshiva Ohr Hameir closed down Moshe Pinter used to work there, as reported here in the summer.

    2 weeks ago 3 bucherim approached him and told him that the Rosh Yeshiva Y.M. molested them.

    He called the parents and informed them of the incidents, and recommended to send the kids for professional help, he also called the police to report the charges.

    He then called the Rosh Yeshiva and told him that since he damaged these kids he should pay for their therapy, since the parents don't have the money to pay for a licensed therapist.

    The boys were sent to licensed therapists for professional help to ensure they get the help in time and to minimize the damage that was done, the bills were paid by the Rosh Yeshiva Y.M.

    The right thing was done, and there was no cover up.

    Times are changing and the oilim is waking up, that we cant let molesters get away!
