Rabbi Avrohom Glick

(Chairman of the Yeshivah Centre Spiritual Committee, former Principal of Yeshivah College)

You are hereby called upon to:

Apologise to the innocent victims who were sexually abused as children on your watch and resign from all positions of leadership which you hold within our community.

We, the undersigned members of the Jewish Community, consider the safety and welfare of innocent children to be sacrosanct. We believe in accountability and the rule of law. We believe that justice must not only be done, but it must also be seen to be done.

We are disgusted by the incidences of child sexual abuse committed against innocent children at the Yeshivah Centre (operating under the auspices of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement) which occurred during the 1980's and 1990's and during which time you were responsible for the children's safety and protection.

We are appalled by your mishandling of the matter, both at the time and to this day. We are outraged that you have not personally apologised or been held to account for your involvement in what amounts to the most shameful episode in the history of the Melbourne Jewish Community.

We call upon you, Rabbi Avrohom Glick, to unequivocally and individually apologise to the innocent victims who were sexually abused as children on your watch. We further demand that you resign from all positions of leadership which you hold within our community.

To avoid causing additional, unnecessary distress to victims and to save the broader Jewish Community further embarrassment arising from your conduct, we ask that you act quickly to address the above demands.
