Why Is This Child Molester Being Kept At Rasha Gamur -Margulies's personal Piggy Bank - Tora Temima

Posted By David

I too was molested by Rabbi Yidi Kolko, both while a student in 7th and 8th grades in Yeshiva Torah V'daas and during those same summers whilst a camper in Camp Agudah.

I used to get rides to school in the mornings with Yidi whether in his old blue car or in his brand new brown car. At that time he lived on 56th Street between 14th & 15th Avenue, whilst I lived on 57th Street, between 15th and 16th Avenues. He was newly married at that time and his first child, a daughter, was also just born then.

Once we got to the Yeshiva on Ocean Parkway, which then was just off of Caton Road, he would park the car (either down the block from the Yeshiva, on the Ocean Parkway service road, or around the corner, I think it was East 5th Street, and ask me to come over and either sit beside him or sit on his lap. Sometimes he would move over to the passenger seat and would then sit me on his lap.

That's when he went fishing. He would insert his hands down the front of my pants and would begin to "search around" to say the least. At the same time he would pull me closer to himself, or would push himself forward againt myself, sometimes even pushing me into the stearing wheel, to the point that it hurt.

Unfortunately I didn't react or complain. The winters were cold and these rides saved on not having to walk all the way to 13th Avenue to wait for the bus (especially on Sunday mornings), you were able to leave your house later since you could always make the ride, and you saved a couple of cents, which was a lot in those days.

During one of those Sunday mornings whilst we were driving on Caton Avenue, whilst I was sitting in the front passenger seat - I almost always sat in the front passenger seat - we were involved in a terrible traffic accident where a car went through a red light and slammed into Yidi's car. B"H we all got out without a scratch.

In Camp Aguda it was the same, whether if he took me into the trees, or into his cabin, or even would take me out for a drive. FYI, during the summer of 1970 I had my bar mitzva in the camp.

I of course told my parents and tried on several times
to explain to them what I was going through, but they didn't want to believe me and my "stories", etc. My father at that time was a very well known and respected person in the Boro Park & Midwood communities and within the Yeshiva world. So I just shut up and let the molestation and perversion continue.

I also think that Yidi Kolko is a danger to the students, past and present in Yeshiva Tora Temimah and I feel that it is about time that the wall of silence be torn down.

Did I suffer as a result, probably. But I have made a life for myself and today am very happily married with 4 wonderful children.

Everyone in the community is complicit with this criminal Margulies!
Lipa Margulies is an example of how a BIG crook gets away with murder (yes, murder of the soul of G-d knows how many children),while the little guy gets trampled on.
Margulies is the # 1 low-life in the Orthodox community.
He began his school with a major fraud and massive theft.He is a first class thief and a phony minuvel.His God is the almighty dollar.I know him well, HE DOES NOT HAVE A RELIGIOUS BONE IN HIS BODY!
He continues to harbor a child molester.
Scores of kids get turned away ( why they want to go there is a huge mystery) because they can not afford the tuition.
Every board member of this school or person of influence should hide themselves in shame!There is no wonder why the community is plagued with tragedies.You bring it on yourselves. Generations of Jewish people suffer because you really don't give a damn about anything that you feel doesn't effect you directly.I hope your kids and grandkids suffer the same fate as the above David, at the hands of a vicious child molester.
You are no better than the KING SCUMBAG of the Jewish community!

I was there for high school and my father was in Camp Aguda, and it was well known by all that Koko was a very sick guy.
Very many people came forward in the infamous Din Torah to testify against Koko.

Has anyone of heard of the rapist in Camp Romimu? Rumor has it that a sexual deviant has been striking at young innocent victims for many years. Most of the victims are now between the age of 22 and 25. Crazy stuff is going on.....

I was a camper when Yudi Kolko was there and I never saw a hint of evidence that this is so.

Frankly, I'm shocked and don't believe it.

I also don't believe anybody goes into major depression, etc. because of abuse. If they have problems, they have problems. If not, not. A psychiatrist from Warsaw confided to me that nobody lost it because of the Holocaust. The people who were meshuga before the war were crazy afterwards too.

If there is any truth to these allegations, evidence would help. Otherwise, it's mere hearsay, and ill intentioned at best.

How old were you in camp an d how would you have been able to tell?
Do you think he molested EVERY kid he saw?
This Warsaw shrink is proof positive that there is nothing dumber than a Pollack!
Like ALL people that were molested, NEVER had a breakdown!

What's your name "Mr.was not molested by Kolko"?
We have a molester maven here everyone.
He did not get molested, so I guess the thirty people that testified at bais din are all liars.
Yeah, people just made this shit up!
Poster David must be delusional.
Hey asshole, go see the shrink from Warsaw, you deserve each other!

Yidi Kolko molested hundreds of children over the years. It was a well known fact that in Camp Agudah he would tickle children and drop his hands down their pants. I personally saw him do it countless times in Manavu. He would enter the bunk after everyone was in bed and touch kids under their covers. I witnessed someone telling Geldwerth about it on the playdeck in Torah Temimah. Geldwerth told the kid he better shut up. I do not believe that Margolies believes it is true about Kolko, the man is in convient denial.

Maybe you were an ugly and fat kid.
Molesters have a way of choosing kids that they feel safe with.
They are very sick people with warped sensibilities.
Every case is different.

I don't think I was ugly or fat, but the point I made is that I never heard any allegations all the years I was there.

Okay, so I was a kid and maybe didn't know much at all, but Rabbi S. Heschel hated gays more than anything else and he'd have flipped on the slightest hint.

I cannot believe Rabbi Borchardt knew about this. I don't think it was well known. Maybe he became more daring as the years wore on.

inhibitions break down.

Gays and child molesters are different but similar.
Not all Gays are molesters, but are more brazen on their advances against people of the same sex.

i see, scion of the truck famous family, who earned smicha the real way, with honors and distinction, has anyone gay ever hit on you?

Women have hit on me and as a frum Jew I've run away. Married women have flirted with me and as a frum Jew I've stayed very far away from them.

But, never has a gay person hit on me.

This may reflect their relatively small numbers in society, or the fact that harvey thinks I'm a fat and ugly kid.

thanks, harv.

You presume much, Mr. UOJ.

Kolko is guilty. I was a victim of his perversion. He should be exposed. It would be a cathartic experience for those who still suffer from his heinous acts. His victims deserve no less.

Israel Belsky of Torah Vodaath is the "Rabbi" of Camp Agudah and since 1970 was intimately apprised of all the sexcapades and pedophile acts at the Camp and elsewhere. According to his victims,he always enjoyed listening to them complain of their experiences. He did nothing to stop it. Is Belsky any better than Kolko? Shame on them both!!! Shame on Camp Agudah!!!

UOJ - I agree it is very sad that no one has spoke out about this. I also am very sorry that you and your friends had to go through this. Still, I agree that you and anyone else molested by him has a personal responsibility to speak out about it in more ways then blogging. You need to let people know this is real.

Unfortunately this is all true. I was at Camp Agudah and Mirer Yeshiva when Kolko was gym teacher. He violated me numerous times but i was chilcken to speak up as I was afraid it would impact on me negatively.
