These days, exposing and prosecuting child abusers is a big topic in the community. The pressing question is, are all accusations of this nature true?
Two years ago, ChabadInfo.com published an op-ed penned by “Daniel G.” who talked about his personal nightmare of having been falsely accused.
In the article he wrote:
“This is just an article… but my story is long enough that it could fill a book. And my story isn’t really over. Hashem rescued me from this evil false accusation… and now I need to reclaim my good name….”
Now “Daniel G.” has in fact written his book: “In the Lion’s Den.” The 360 page book is a fascinating read, highlighting the incredible damage caused by motzei shem rah – and what it can lead to.
As it is written in Devarim 13:15, “Then you shall inquire, investigate, and ask thoroughly, and, behold, it is true, the matter is certain, that such abomination has been committed in your midst.”
