REJECTED! Sex Offender Yona Weinberg's Slander Lawsuit Rejected by Jerusalem Judge!!


Judge Wrote That Referring to Weinberg as a "Terrorist With a Machete" Was Justified

Dear Friends:

With boundless gratitude to Hashem, and deep appreciation for the extraordinary support we received from our readers worldwide, we are delighted to share the news of a great victory for the safety of Israeli children.

After a 5-year court battle, a Jerusalem judge rejected convicted sex offender Yona Weinberg’s defamation lawsuit for warning Har Nof parents about the danger he poses to their children.

Moreover, the judge wrote that telling people to “treat Weinberg as they would a terrorist with a machete” was justified because of the life-threatening danger he poses to children.

Why is this so important? Because Israel does not have a sex-offender registry (yet), and many sex offenders from the Diaspora abuse Israel’s Law of Return and flee to Israel.

So the only way for Israeli parents to know about dangerous sex offenders living near them is for child safety advocates to publicly warn them. Silencing those voices would have been a giant step backwards.

There is much more to say on this, but that will have to wait for a later email. In the meantime, we just wanted to share this wonderful news with our digital family members.

With humility and gratitude
