Rabbi, Have You Ever Written a Letter on Behalf of a Victim?

scales of justice and childI am short on time and wanted to share this thought. So I will be brief.

Many Rabbis wrote letters to the judge on behalf of Evan Zauder. I would be interested in knowing how many rabbis have written how many letters on behalf of victims.

Perhaps some of them who are speaking of mercy and compassion can share some specimens of sentencing letters they wrote to give voice to the perspective of victims.

I hope reporters covering this issue ask this question. I encourage my readers to ask the question of their congregational rabbis.

  1. Rabbi Pruzansky’s protestations that he has compassion for the victims are empty words while his assertion that he simultaneously has compassion for the perpetrator and his family is backed by his actions.

  2. Our poskim have made it clear that someone who is an ongoing danger (rodef) to others (eg to rape) MUST be stopped, if need be by capital punishment. This is not rocket science.
