Why: Michael Brecher was a young boy attending the Maimonides School in Brookline, MA in the 1970s when he encountered Rabbi Stanley Levitt, who sexually abused him and other boys. In December, 2013, the Maimonides School found Michael Brecher and others credible and paid a settlement of six figures to Mr. Brecher. Rabbi Stanley Levitt, the abuser, pled guilty in August, 2012, of sexually assaulting several young boys at a Boston area hospital, his Brighton, MA, home, and Jewish ritual locations. Levitt, who is 68 years old, now lives in the Baltimore area and continues to pose a risk to children. He has been welcomed to worship with the Ohel Yakov Congregation where many children attend with their families.
Michael Brecher will discuss the settlement he received in December, 2013, the details of his sexual abuse by Rabbi Stanley Levitt in Massachusetts, and the danger Mr. Brecher believes Rabbi Levitt continues to pose in the Baltimore, MD, area.
