CALL TO ACTION: Demanding Herzlia-Adas Yeshurun Synagogue to remove plaque honoring ex-Rabbi Ephraim Bryks

This coming Yom Kippur will mark the 15th anniversary of the suicide of Daniel Levin, an alleged victim of ex-Rabbi Ephraim Boruch Bryks.

This is a difficult time in particular for his family and friends as Daniel's alleged sex offender who has never been brought to justice and continues to thrive and work with women and children in both the New York and Lakewood, NJ orthodox Jewish communities.

The Winnipeg Jewish community and Bryks' former Orthodox Union affiliated synagogue, Herzlia Adas Yeshurun (the site of the alledged sex crimes committed against Daniel), continue to refuse any acknowledgment or responsibility. No apology, no compassion. Only a plaque honoring Rabbi Ephraim Boruch Bryks remains on the synagogue's "Tree of Life." All Daniel has is a tombstone in a cemetery.

The Awareness Center is asking everyone to contact Herzlia Adas Yeshurun and demand they remove the plaque, and perhaps replace it with a plaque honoring the memory of Daniel Levin.

Watch the documentary "Unorthodox Conduct", which goes into details about the case against ex-Rabbi Ephraim Bryks

So, so sad. What total destruction of a life that Daniel committed suicide. Amazing that it can be invalidated. But writing about it here is a way to speak for Daniel. Thank you for this very powerful blog.
