Will Jewish Shmootz Peddlers Clear Aquitted Rabbi Krispin

"Failed" and "Survivors" have been vending shmootz titillation to their readers, both Jewish and gentile.
Rabbi Aminadav Krispin, 80, chief rabbi of the town of Kiryat Bialyk was acquitted of the charges against him.

Rabbi Aminadav Krispin, 80, chief rabbi of the town of Kiryat Bialyk was acquitted of the charges against him.

On Sunday morning, Rabbi Aminadav Krispin, 80, chief rabbi of the town of Kiryat Bialyk was acquitted in magistrate court in Haifa of all charges against him of sexual harassment and sex crimes. Judge Zaid Falach acquitted Rabbi Krispin completely on one charge and for reasonable doubt on three other charges.

The question now is how soon will the two major Jewish shmootz sites, “Failed Messiah” and Jewish survivors of Sexual Violence” take full measures to clear Rabbi Krispin’s name.

“Failed” and “Survivors” have been vending sexual titillation to their readers, both Jewish and gentile (including many White Power sites that find there confirmation of their worst prejudices against Jews and their rabbis). The “Survivors” blog maintain extensive lists of Jewish clergy who have been charged—by someone, not necessarily the law, just an accuser, often anonymous—of sexual abuse. It’s a well known fact that it’s a lot easier to get on those lists than off them.

The “Survivors” website has the acquitted rabbi’s name on its list of Alleged and Convicted Cases of Spiritual Abuse in Jewish Communities. It also has a link to an old Ha’aretz story on “Rabbi Krispin: Rabbi Mahluf Aminadav Krispin-73-year-old Rabbi Arrested on Sex Assault Charges,” with damning copy&paste text. There’s also “Rabbi of northern town detained on sexual assault charges.”

Now that you have the URL address for the list and the reports of the allegations, I urge you to visit the site to observe whether the acquitted rabbi’s name has been removed. Let’s start the countdown….. now.

“Failed Messiah” Shmarya Rosenberg had a particularly exciting dance over Rabbi Krispin’s body, since he was able to nail two enemies with one stone: rabbis and Lubavitch, with his headline: “Chief Rabbi of Kiryat Bialik Arrested on Sexual Assault Charges – Signed ‘Pesak Din’ in 1997 Declaring the Late Lubavitcher Rebbe the Messiah.”

Earlier this year, Shmarya ran this enthusiastic story: “Chief Rabbi Of Kiryat Bialik Charged With Sexual Harassment, Witness Tampering,” accompanied by the sub-headline: “The rabbi signed a religious ruling declaring the late Rebbe the messiah after his death, and is the husband of a granddaughter of the Baba Sali.” That’s throwing schmootz on three favorite targets in one story.

So now, let’s monitor Shmarya’s website and see whether he even mentions the acquittal, and in what way does he show that the acquitted rabbi is still guilty but somehow managed to squeeze free, like all the Orthodox Jews are known to do.

    It seems almost all bloggers, including your good self, have an axe to grind and never quite tell it 100%. Failed Messiah is not a porn site – typical charedi hyperbole. It has many faults, but it reports on some things that have been brushed under the carpet and the victims ignored.

    They appear to have jumped the gun on this one – innocent till found guilty – and in this case deserve criticism. And, Good Jewish boys should not be looking at – or discussing – porn. Mr Yanover.

  2. you’re being a bit ingenious here.shmarya is deffinitly not in his right senses i’ll grant you.that being said he for sure wont retract that which he believes to be true.his hate will be his main emotion.i don’t know what exactly went on in chabad with him to bring out this hate.i support bringing pedophiles to justice and i’ve seen rabbinical cover ups more than once so i won’t buy in to your critiqe.it seems to be as off base as some of shmaya’s.

  3. The problem, Yori, is that you continue to lie.

    1. I posted on this verdict BEFORE you did:


    2. Krispin beat the rap due to an extortion plot carried out YEARS AFTER THE INITIAL ARREST AND CHARGES WERE MADE by a representative of the three women who filed those charges. Krispin beat the charges because of that – not because of the evidence against him, which remained the same. (people who have followed the Kellner and Lebovits cases might see a strong parallel here.)

    3. You have consistently covered for pedophiles, and sex abusers, Yori, and used whatever small platforms you have had to harass victims and advocates. You are sick, disgusting man. A real newsppaer would have fired you long ago,
