Sex Scandals In Religion - Wall of Silence
In quiet and seemingly devout North American Chasidic and Charedi Orthodox Jewish communities allegations of pedophilia shock, as if the accusation itself has broken a covenant. The effects on the alleged victims are devastating. With unusual access to these tightly bound communities, Wall of Silence finds hope that openness and justice will purge the crime from the community and clear the collective conscience.
