Arrest of Malka Leifer by the Israeli police

NCJWA welcomed the news that Malka Leifer, former Adass Israel principal has been arrested by the Israeli police.

We are proud that NCJWA nationally supported and assisted sex abuse victim Dassi Erlich in her campaign to extradite Malka Leifer from Israel to face charges.

We approached the Israeli Ambassador formally and informally on her behalf in June 2017, and former NCJWA director Dr Anita Shroot accompanied her to her meeting with H.E. Ambassador Shmuel Ben Shmuel in August 2017 in Canberra.
