Hannah Katsman, proprietor of the blog, A Mother in Israel, who occasionally blogs about sex abuse, wrote this morning (7/6/16) on FaceBook,

Just got word that Malka Leifer, a former high school principal facing 74 counts of sex abuse in Australia, has returned to live in the small [Haredi] settlement of Emanuel [aka עמנואל Immanuel]. She has not faced an extradition hearing in Israel because she has admitted herself into a psychiatric hospital in advance of each scheduled date.

I would add on that she has now even been released from house arrest pending reconsideration of her extradition case in six months, an outrageous court surrender to fakery.

Immanuel was also where she was initially arrested but for a while there has been uncertainty about where she lived.

I urge all parents in Immanuel to be sure to keep their children away from her.

  1. She poses a specific danger to teenage and young adult girls. I believe (though others are free to correct me) that all her victims were female, around the 14-21 year old age range. (Yes, some were adults by law, but her predatory sexual behaviour on them nevertheless destroyed them emotionally). Keep your teenage girls safe from this predator. Tell them not to even say hello to her, or engage her in conversation! She is extremely cunning in luring her victims to her home, and then on to abusing them.
    And to any potential employer – do not give her a job in any workplace where she will have contact with teenage girls. She is dangerous!

    • Thank you for urging neigbors to be cautious. But I would not restrict that advisory to teen girls. While the Australian indictment refers to the abuse of teen girls, she may have other victims we don’t know about, male or female, teen or pre-teen. While some child molesters confine themselves to very specific types, others are just opportunistic or their preferences evolve over time.

  2. My austrailian source (her sister was a student there under Leifer) tell me she was specifically a lesbian predator; She is aware of (at least) one suicide R”L, and numerous off the derech from these episodes. So so tragic.

    • The variation among molesters is surprising and defies stereotypes. People whose adult orientation is gay or lesbian can molest opposite sex children. Molesters can even evolve over time toward either older or younger victims, and well as changing their style of abuse, typically to more invasive and aggressive acts over time. So while it is true that her known victims in AU were teen girls, we don’t know who else she may have molested or whether her targets have changed over the 8 years since she fled. Her targets may also be different because of who she has access to. For example, if she gets a day care job.

  3. Unfortunately, as you are aware, the people and familys in Emmanuel are not the type of people who have internet access and look for these types of warnings. So the appeals to be careful, need to be word of mouth with copies of this blog being handed out into the town, shuls, and camps

  4. Malka Leifer is a shocking example of sexual abuse that took place in a religious school in Melbourne. She was the principal of the school and sexually abused a number of girls at school in her home and at school camp. The school rushed her off to Israel and law enforcement is trying to get her back to Australia. Every time there is a hearing she has a panic attack and she is unable to come. I see this as her being manipulative with the system just like she manipulated the girls. I would love to see her back in Australia and in jail. The girls that were abused by her are suffering even more so because she is getting away with it. I am also worried that she will do it again because past behaviour is a sure indicator of what will happen in the future.

  5. I don’t know if her being specifically a lesbian predator reflects a preference for female victims, as opposed to a lack of easy access to teenage males in our strictly segregated charedi world.

  6. What the HECK is wrong with this world???? How can a school system “pack off a sexual predator” to Israel and still be considered in ANY way trustworthy, or even a religious system? This is disgusting! Why would anyone ever send their children to such an establishment ever again?

    • Yeah, and what the HECK is wrong with Israel? It has become a SAFE HAVEN for Jewish sexual predators and other criminals.
