Former principal of girls' school in Melbourne arrested in Israel on sex assault charges

The Australian    THE former principal of a Melbourne Jewish girls’ school who fled Australia in 2008 after being accused of sexual assault has been arrested in Israel and is facing extradition. 
The federal Attorney-General’s Department has confirmed Malka Leifer was taken into custody in Israel after an extradition request from Australian authorities.

The mother of eight left Australia six years ago after she was sacked as principal of the ultra-orthodox Adass Israel School Elsternwick following allegations of improper conduct with students between 2001 — 2008.

A spokesman for the Attorney-General’s Department said Ms Leifer was wanted to face prosecution in Victoria for alleged sexual assault offences.

    Daas Torah ............
    If you could put out a picture of Rivky Stein , so what's the point of not putting out the picture of Malka Leifer ?

  2. I heard that her husband divorced her. Is it true?

    Also read that her husband is a Gerrer chosid. Could the Gerrer kedusha life style have driven.her to this unusual behavior (at least for a woman).

  3. Could the " have driven.her to this unusual behavior

    No! Nowhere in the "Gerrer kedusha life style" is there any permission to hurt another person. If she hurt other people to fulfill her desires - be it lust or control - then that's her personal criminal/middos problem, not the Gerrer lifestyles issue.

    Additionally, a person who is willing to hurt other people to fulfill their desires has severe personal issues. Her communal lifestyle is not responsible for this.

    (I'm writing this based on the assumption that there were several girls who complained, and that it was not a one girl incident.)

  4. Famous joke--Rebbe to Gerrer Chossid--Why were you walking on the street next to your wife?

    Chossid--Chas Veshalom--My wife was four amos back--That was Yennem's wife that I was walking with--she was four amos behind him!

    I heard that her husband is not a Gerrer chosid. I heard that he's a grandson of the first Nadvorne Rebbe.

  7. You could have just googled "Malka Leifer."

    I did . Thanks.

  9. That's good. You were probably losing sleep because you didn't know what she looked like.

    I did know it from quite a few years ago, at the time when she was first accused of breaking the בתולים of about 7 of her student girls (3 of them were sisters) and then fled away overnight from Australia towards Israel to avoid prosecution (she didn't think that she'll later be extradited!)

  11. Nah, he can find her supervising at peninim. (Joke, but perhaps controls along these lines should be put in place. OTOH, boys schools will protest about similar (not identical, but similar) procedures.

    Perhaps you should change the picture of M. The guy gives me the creeps. Besides, why should any young lady want that picture, when they can get a more appropriate...

  12. Well now we all get to see it thanks to you. Thanks!
