The Ways and Means Of Rabbi Abner Weiss

He’s a smart guy. He has two PhDs. He’s a good speaker. He’s affectionate. He can talk to the world. He was runner-up to be the Chief Rabbi of the British Commonwealth.

Abner Weiss is not only a pulpit rabbi, he’s also in therapeutic practice. That’s where he’s particularly dangerous.

Like most predators, he knows how to zero in on the vulnerable. Then he starts to groom them, particularly potential converts to Judaism. He’ll tell them to turn their backs on their goyisha family and friends. He’ll isolate them. He’ll slowly increase his demonstrations of affection. He’ll make his victim feel powerful by saying, "Look, I’m risking everything for you! My marriage, my career, my reputation. I put it all on the line for you."

He’ll even pay housecalls. But not because he wants to talk. He has something more visceral on his mind.

His victim thinks, "Oh my, I can’t believe this great rabbi is falling for me. Maybe he’ll leave his wife?"

YourMoralLeader: she told rabbi weil

YourMoralLeader: but what she said was true
YourMoralLeader: she just didn’t have the guts to follow through
Joe: you still don’t have proof it’s true
YourMoralLeader: i have proof he visited her regularly at her place alone
