The details of B'nai Jeshurun Congregation Rabbi Stephen Weiss’ crimes and arrest
Rabbi Stephen Weiss, who has served as senior rabbi at B’nai Jeshurun Congregation in Pepper Pike, Ohio, since 2001, was arrested by law enforcement officers with the Ohio Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
The 60-year-old Cleveland-area rabbi had traveled to a pre-arranged location to allegedly engage in sexual activity with the purported child, after communicating on a social networking app.
According to court records, the vehicle he was driving was searched and law enforcement officers found a box of condoms, two bottles of lubricant and erectile dysfunction medication.
According to the prosecutor’s office, Rabbi Weiss was charged with:
- attempted unlawful sexual conduct with a minor;
- soliciting sexual services; and,
- possessing criminal tools.
Court records also show Weiss posted a $50,000 bond and must wear an ankle monitor as a condition of his bond.
Priests, pastors, rabbis and clergy members are being held accountable for abuse
Thousands of boys and girls report sexual abuses every year at the hands of the church clergy, institutional leadership, and other persons in roles they should be able to trust.
Many of these institutional and organizational leaders were aware of these abuses and opted not to report them to authorities.
The adults responsible were never identified but rather were passed on to another city or organization–free to repeat their crimes against young victims and their families.
The victims that were abused by these institutions and their families are now encouraged to come forward for a free, private case evaluation by a qualified attorney, with the potential to file a claim for compensation because:
- The statute of limitations have been lifted in many cases;
- Many victims are given the opportunity to tell their stories; and,
- Church and organization leadership are more ready to reveal abusers.
The Shield Justice Watch team believes that victims of B'nai Jeshurun Congregation Rabbi Stephen Weiss–and all sexual abuse victims of pastors, priests, preachers, and clergy members–should be able to address abusers in court and get compensation and justice.
Our network of attorneys are ready to support you.
