Alabama Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore had an interesting supporter introduce him at his latest national press conference on Thursday afternoon. A “Rabbi Nosson Leiter” was called to the podium to heap praise on Moore. Multiple women have made serious allegations against Moore in the past few weeks.
Leiter was introduced as being with two groups, the first one was ‘Torah Jews For Decency’ and the second is ‘Help Rescue Our Children'”.
Rabbi Leiter began his statement by describing his Help Rescue Our Children “organization” as an organization that “seeks to protect children from molestation through advocacy and assisting in prosecution.” He then began to announce his full support and how he is “honored to stand with Judge Roy Moore” – who has been accused of inappropriate behavior by multiple women – some of them minors.
Moore has fiercely denied the allegations levied against him, denouncing the initial Washington Post report as “fake news” and disputing the accounts of accusers.
Rabbi Leiter has previously been mentioned on YWN. In 2012, as millions were impacted by Hurricane Sandy, Rabbi Leiter blamed the hurricane directly on same-gender marriage. His remarks caused a tremendous Chillul Hashem, with many people voicing outrage at his actions – including NY Governor Cuomo. Hurricane Sandy left at least 64 people dead in the US, cut power from millions of homes and paralyzed transport on much of the eastern US seaboard.
It’s interesting to note that That Rabbi Leiter has previously claimed to be the the spokesperson for the “Garden State Parents for Moral Values”.
YWN reached out to multiple organizations that are working daily to fight molestation in the Jewish community, and not one of them has ever heard of Rabbi Leiter or his “Help Rescue Our Children” organization.
YWN has attempted to find a contact for any of the three organization but was unsuccessful. It appears that Rabbi Leiter is the sole member of all three of his organizations.
