For so many years the anti-religious press of 'The Land' has attacked the religous community for refusing to come to terms with sexual abuse. Takana allows people to raise complaints with respected Rabbis who then invesitigate and try to stop further possible abuse. Many people who might speak to Takana would not speak to the Israeli police, and for this Takana deserves great credit. I hope the Edah Haredit sets up a similar committee to deal with their own educators. The fact that the Attorney General was consulted shows they are not an alternative, but work together with the 'official' agencies.
