JCCV Statement on Adass Israel Decision in Supreme Court

16 September 2015

In response to the Supreme Court decision today regarding the former Adass Israel School Principal Malka Leifer, the President of the Jewish Community Council of Victoria (JCCV) Jennifer Huppert stated, “ Although the Adass Israel School is not affiliated with the JCCV, events at Adass concern all members of the community.  The JCCV believes very strongly that Malka Leifer must be brought back to Australia to face justice.  It is critical for the sake of the victims and for healing to be able to take place.”

“We are pleased to note that the current administration has been working towards improving policies and procedures regarding child sexual abuse, and they have been participating in this year’s JCCV Child Protection Policy & Procedures Training.  We hope that the administration of the school use this knowledge to ensure a safe and secure environment for the children in their care.”
