The Directors of Hadassah Australia have given their strong support to the President of the Zionist Federation of Australia, Jeremy Leibler who wrote to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemning the appointment of United Torah Judaism’s Yaakov Litzman MK, to the position of Health Minister in Israel.

Ron Finkel

President of Hadassah Australia Ron Finkel praised the principled stand of Jeremy Leibler and the ZFA.

Finkel said “it is truly difficult to comprehend how Litzman, who the Israeli police have recommended be indicted for bribery, fraud, witness tampering and breach of trust in relation to the alleged serial sexual abuse by Malka Leifer, could be elevated to the most senior position of responsibility in the Israeli health system”.

Finkel also noted that Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem has a deep and long-standing commitment to the support of victims of sexual abuse in Israel. Hadassah’s Bat Ami Center for the immediate treatment and assessment of victims of sexual abuse is the only facility of its kind in southern Israel.

In a statement, Hadassah said: “Hadassah Australia strongly supports the speedy extradition of Malka Leifer to Australia and the opportunity for her victims to have their allegations heard in an Australian court as soon as possible.

    Litzman is the mouthpiece of the Gerer Rebbe and his Chassidic sect in Israel. The most effective method to achieve this woman’s deportation to face her accusers in Melbourne is to publicly petition the Gerer Rebbe and demand he take action to preserve the integrity of his sect. This will succeed.
    Netanyahu will not ditch Litzman and possibly destroy his very fragile political coalition.
    I fear if such public action is not taken, she will never face deportation.
