Australian abuse report

    An Australian government report has found members of the Jewish community were "discouraged from reporting" allegations of abuse against employees of two yeshivahs.

    The report by the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse followed a public hearing in February 2015 on the response of the Yeshivah Centre and the Yeshivah College in Melbourne to allegations made against David Cyprys, David Kramer and Aron Kestecher.

    The hearing also investigated the response of two Jewish institutions to allegations of child sexual abuse made against Daniel Hayman.

    The Royal Commission heard evidence that the religious prohibition of mesirah forbids a Jew from handing over another Jew to a secular authority.
