In 2006, New York magazine and ABC's Nightline both featured stories dealing with rabbis who had abused children entrusted to them. Then, at the start of 2007, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency published a five-part series on sexual abuse by rabbis who led congregations, taught religious studies, and ran youth groups. The series soon was picked up by Jewish newspapers nationwide. Despite this spate of media coverage, there has been a dearth of scholarly material investigating sexual abuse within the Jewish clergy.
Tempest in the Temple brings together fifteen practicing rabbis, educators, pastoral counselors, sociologists, mental health professionals, and legal advocates for abuse victims, each of whom offer insights into different facets of the problem.
This book is divided into three sections. The first section, "When the Vow Breaks," describes rabbis who break their "vows" through active pedophilia. The second section, "Sacrificing Victims," illuminates the community dynamics surrounding abuse: how a community unwittingly contributes to the cover-up of abuse; why victims of abuse are all too often ignored or cast off by their religious communities; and the mechanisms by which powerful religious institutions protect their own. The third section, "Let Me Know the Way," addresses how Jewish communities can overcome the ignorance, bias, and corruption associated with clergy sexual abuse. Solutions--some already successful, others yet to be tried--are explored here.
Tempest in the Temple offers an open discussion of some of the most deeply rooted fears in the Jewish community. While it is the first book to bring child sex scandals in temples and synagogues to light, its purpose is not to blame or shame Jews but to examine this horrific problem with as much clarity and precision as possible so that the best remedies can be offered to the community as a whole.

About the Author:

AMY NEUSTEIN, Ph.D., is a sociologist, author, and lecturer. In 1986 she founded a legal research and advocacy center in New York City, Help Us Regain the Children, to study the plight of mothers who lost custody of children, and the findings of her study were published in the Journal of Child Sexual Abuse. In 1996, she received a Humanitarian Award from Mothers Against Sexual Abuse. Dr.Neustein is the co-author of From Madness to Mutiny: Why Mothers Are Running from the Family Courts - and What Can Be Done about It (NUP/UPNE, 2005).

Review:

"Tempest is a testament to how we can protect our children and make our Jewish communities the safe and nurturing places we want them to be."--Esther Giller, President and Director of the Sidran Institute, Baltimore

"Neustein's work is a most timely volume that serves educators, parents, clergy, and mental health professionals who face the challenge of protecting children from child sexual abuse."--Debbie Fox, Director of Children and Family Services, Jewish Family Service of Los Angeles,

"The veil of secrecy shrouding clergy-perpetrated sexual abuse has been torn asunder in the past decade. Neustein's thoughtful and pragmatic collection provides practical interventions to assist clergy of all religious faiths."--Terence A. Keane, Professor of Clinical Psychology at Boston University, and Robert A. McMackin, Massachusetts Department of Public Health,

"Neustein's fascinating collection includes perspectives from rabbis, lawyers, psychotherapists, social workers, and educators who seek to empower children against predators. One chapter tells the parallel history of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests. . . . This book skillfully gathers the voices of those who struggled against official silence to speak truth and demand justice in this case and others . . . [and] helps us begin the discussions we have resisted too long." "Providence Journal""
