Feldman ‘dropped the ball’

Australian Jewish News

RABBI Pinchus Feldman admitted last week that he had “dropped the ball” because he still didn’t know the details of Sydney Yeshiva Centre’s child protection policies.

At the 2015 Royal Commission hearings the centre’s leaders were told they failed in their duties for not knowing the details.

When it was revealed, more than 750 days later, that Rabbi Feldman still did not know the details the counsel assisting the Royal Commission, Naomi Sharp, questioned Rabbi Feldman’s knowledge on leadership.

“Do you accept that leaders of institutions should be aware of the details of the child protection policies?” Sharp asked.

“That may be the case, and if that is the case then I am faulty, so we need to rectify it,” Rabbi Feldman responded.
