Australia’s Top Rabbi Resigns After Giving Evidence At Sex Abuse Royal Commission


The most senior rabbi in Australia has resigned, days after appearing before the royal commission into institutional responses to child sexual abuse.

Rabbi Meir Shlomo Kluwgant, the president of the Organisation of Rabbis of Australasia, stepped down on Monday morning, the immediate past president, Rabbi Moshe Gutnick, confirmed.

Child sexual abuse victims said Kluwgant’s position was untenable after the commission heard on Friday that he had called the father of three sons who were sexually abused a “lunatic” who was guilty of “killing” the Orthodox Jewish Chabad community within which his sons had been violated.

Zephaniah Waks told the commission how he and his family were ostracised and bullied by religious leaders after speaking out about the abuse within Chabad’s Yeshivah centre headquarters in Melbourne.

The commission heard that as Waks was giving his evidence, Kluwgant sent a text message to the editor of the Australian Jewish News that read: “Zephaniah is killing us.

“He is a lunatic on the fringe, guilty of neglect of his own children,” it said. “Where was he when all this was happening?”

Waks’s son Manny, who was abused within the centre, said Kluwgant’s resignation was welcome.

“I hope this is his first step towards educating himself about child sexual abuse and that he can contribute towards being a part of the solution to it from now on,” Waks said.

“But he is unfit to hold any leadership position. As he holds several high-profile positions within the Yeshivah community, I feel he should resign from them all.”

Kluwgant’s resignation is the second to result from the hearings. The director of the Sydney Yeshivah centre, Rabbi Yosef Feldman, resigned last week, after offending child sex abuse victims and members of the Jewish community during his evidence.

Since 2013, the commission has been investigating how institutions such as schools, churches, sports clubs and government organisations have responded to allegations and instances of child sexual abuse.

The past fortnight of hearings was the first time the orthodox Yeshivah centres had come under its scrutiny. The Yeshivah centres in New South Wales and Victoria run schools, religious activities and youth programs. Failures to address child sexual abuse within the centres were highlighted before the commission at Melbourne’s county court

    Australians, as a whole, have absolutely NO clue about the level of child abuse and satanic rituals that take place in their Masonic nation but it is just as vile as Great Britain.

    Then you have these guys. WTF will the world wake up? This is the frustration…. they could destroy themselves if given the proper publicity.

    If they can do this to their own, Noor, they would not rest – psychic equilibrium demands it, until they had clandestinely done far worse to human cattle – there would be something Halachic in the Talmud about it.

    That means that since the abused goy children can never be set free, they must be killed.

    I don’t know, but I really do believe the worst of that lot, quite capable of inverting the conventional meaning assigned to words, context determining everything.

    That they would have this self awareness of depravity – innate or inculcated, is borne out when we discover that there is that Jewish writer based in Sydney, Peta Jones-Pellach, who has written that in any conflict between the Muslim and the Australian, Jews should take the side of the Muslim.

    After recovering from that as if repelling a viper from one’s bosom, we realise that the Jew in Australia means to do the Anglo Australian in, by setting upon him the Muslim whose immigration he lobbied for in 1973, obviously with this in mind 40yrs on.

    But over the last 40yrs – as convenient parallel, he’s been assiduously busy slaughtering as many Muslims in Gaza and the West Bank and Lebanon as he thought he could get away with.

    Maybe 100,000 all up by now – I’m including the 1975-91 war in Lebanon, with the Jew agitating all sides and factions.

    This is who they are; setting up every non Jew against every other non Jew, and in this way they hope to eliminate very nearly all of us, leaving a few left over for genetic material harvesting purposes.

    Such Rabbis are right in the middle of this sick pandemic killing humanity’s future. Above them are the Jewlluminati, and below them are the aides/ cryptos/ lackeys ‘in power’. This is a global phenomenon now (including Ukrainian kids/ orphans), and here’s a telling example:



    Project Spade – Toronto, the UK and the Ukraine were involved in the selling of child porn.

    In 2013, Toronto-based Project Spade investigated Azov Films.

    “The international network of child porn producers and distributors was directed by the International Jewish mob…

    “My personal hunch is that Jewish bankers based in the City of London, have an important role to play in propping up, facilitating, operating, covering up, and protecting child porn rings often under the direct supervision of the security establishment.”

    “Advocate calls for global Jewish child-abuse commission”

    Recent Australian hearings highlight complicity of Chabad rabbis, Diaspora communities in cover-ups; flight to Israel also used by perps, says activist Manny Waks

    “Goa, in India, is popular with the Jewish Mafia, Israeli soldiers, Israeli tourists, drugs traffickers and child sex traffickers.”
