Press Coverage of Weiss

The story of "rabbi" Weiss' outrageous behavior received extensive press coverage both in the immediate Albany area and across the country as the the story was picked up by the Associated Press and major Jewish news outlets like The Jewish Daily Forward and the Jewish Press.


I have reposted several print media accounts here so that the public might see exactly what occurred.


The simple fact is, Weiss - a 29 year old "Rabbi" - admitted to touching a 13 year old boy inappropriately. The indictment against him (an indictment he eventually plead guilty to, specifically in its fourth count but he also allocuted to its 1st and third count) charged him with "placing his penis in contact with said child's buttocks" as well as encouraging one of his victims to lie to his mother, the police and the district attorney.


This man, in the view of any right-minded person, is a menace to the community and the people of the Capital Region need to be aware of this poseur in our midst. He does not represent Chabad (see the official Chabad statement) and he does not hold any appointed or elected position within Albany's Jewish community. Indeed, he is nothing but a self-appointed cult leader.


It is worth noting that under halacha (Jewish Law), sodomy is a capital offense. I believe (along with the vast majority of Albany's orthodox Community) that Weiss' actions constitute, at the very least, a Chillul HaShem (desecration of G-d's Name) and he deserves nothing but the utter contempt of every right-minded person of the region.
