Synagogue bans sex offender from premises

Andrew Josephs, 29, who is currently serving a sentence of two years and nine months for sexually abusing two boys in his barmitzvah class, is due for release in July.

But he will not be permitted to pray at the Stanmore Synagogue in North West London, where he is a member, because of parental fears about child safety.

Josephs, a former primary school teacher, was convicted in February last year and had requested to return to the synagogue’s congregation upon his release.

A special committee appointed to decide his case recommended Josephs should be banned along with all those "charged or convicted of similar offences".

Dr Nigel de Kare Silver, a synagogue official, said after discussions with the United Synagogue the decision was made to "exclude the individual concerned from synagogue premises and activities, and that such exclusion should be indefinite."

Parents at the synagogue were asked in a questionnaire whether Josephs should be given limited or no access to the building.
A United Synagogue spokesman said: "The United Synagogue is extremely respectful of the very difficult decision that Stanmore’s honorary officers reached, taking into account all the relevant circumstances."

Comments:
They are really tough in Stanmore! Perhaps Josephs should move to Lakewood after he serves his time. That way, his indiscretions can be swept under the carpet in order to protect his dignity.

 

You got that right Owl. Seems the American "Gedolim" protect Pedophiles Rabbis Heineman, Hopfer,
Weinreb are just as bad if not WORSE. We have a מחנך in Baltimore a KNOWN BUT PROTECTED child molester

 

Hey Someone BRAVE enough from Baltimore?
Eliezer Eisgrau is a
PROTECTED SPECIES
He is a KNOWN MOLESTER but the "RABBIS" are afraid of him. He had an INNOCENT brother-in-law put into prison with the help of heineman & hopfer. All the accusation were proven false, this man is now living with his wife and family again. The MULLAHS or rabbis never acknowledged their mistake and continue to protect a child molester. this animals policy in school is: Not to hit a child sent to the principal's office, BUT!! to put the boy on his his lap & give him a big HUG & a KISS.
Yes!!!!! unfortunately we live in a CORRUPT world.
To verify my comment look up
"The Awareness Centre .org" on google with a full list of MOLESTERS
