Manny Waks, head of the Australian, anti-abuse Tzedek, sued Yeshivah Centre in Melbourne for failing to act on information they had that David Cyprys sexually preyed on children. Waks is alleging that Yeshivah Centre should have taken action to prevent further episodes, especially after they learned of criminal convictions. Consequently, Waks asserts, he was sexually assaulted due to their negligence. See the full story here.
