Brooklyn, NY - Days after controversy began to swirl regarding alleged improprieties at the Bais Sarah school in Borough Park and the firing of an employee known as Spikey, Assemblyman Dov Hikind has released a video sharing excerpts of complaints that he received from parents whose daughters are students at the school. 

Hikind’s video comes three days after a letter released by Rabbi Nuchem Klein, the school’s owner and dean, described the allegations as “unjustified.”  Assuring parents that student safety is a top priority, Rabbi Klein said that a recording that had been sent out on social media accusing school of turning a blind eye to alleged improprieties had no basis in truth and had been circulated by someone who was not a school parent.

As previously reported on VIN News (https://bit.ly/2rk6IVh) Hikind has been asking parents of the several hundred girls in grades K through 12 who attend Bais Sarah or its associated Camp Chayei Sura to contact him if their daughters had been touched by Spikey.

In the video, Hikind blasted Rabbi Klein as a liar, saying that he had been contacted by over a dozen parents whose girls attend the school, both by phone and by email and quoted from complaints from four different parents. 

One said that Spikey had taken something from a girl in Bais Sarah’s Camp Chayei Sura and asked her to retrieve it from his bungalow, trying to kiss her when she did.  A second parent said that her daughter had complained to Rabbi Klein on several occasions and that no action was taken.  Another student charged that Spikey had touched her private parts, but the administration did nothing after she reported the incident.  And a fourth parent told Hikind that her daughter had confided that both she and a friend had been touched by Spikey.

“It is amazing that instead of dealing with the problem, Rabbi Klein sends out letters saying it’s not a big deal,” observed Hikind.

The fact that few people seemed surprised by the allegation was telling, said Hikind.

“It was no secret that these things were going up at Bais Sarah,” Hikind told VIN News.  “I have had 14 or 15 parents call me and tell me that these things happened to their child and I have no doubt that I will be hearing from more of them.”

Hikind said that he planned to continue speaking to Bais Sarah parents, urging others whose daughters had similar experiences to come forward.

“Children should be safe when they go to school,” said Hikind.  “To think that the schools administration did nothing to protect students from this kind of behavior is unconscionable.”

Watch below Hikind’s video message:

Hikind shld get a life and let Rabbi Klein alone. He handled it well. My daughter and all her friends are doing just fine. Ever heard te saying “people love to mish a kashe”? Stir up trouble when all is bh taken care of? Hes only making a damn chilul Hashem by his actions. We the parents are ALL fine and bh our daughters are totally safe. If Hikind REALLY wants our good, he shld shut up and go away. Were not parents burying our heads in the sand. Yes, he was inappropriate and hes gone. The stories circulating either are overdramatized or havehave NO merit. Either way its been taken care of professionally. All these so called are from outside parents that dont fargin the hatzlacha of our school.
Dont worry for our kids safety. Theyre doing great and by smearing the school for something that was taken care of with tremendous seriousness. Hikind is not doing anyone good besides putting himself in the spotlight as he always does.

Good going Dov!!!
Do not let up. Until u get to the bottom of this
I HV witnessed the tragic results of these atrocities
If N.Klien is innocent let him come clean
If not I hope the parents HV the courage to file a lawsuit against him & his school "business"
Why when we buy food does it need 10 הכשירים. But when it comes to souls - our children our most expensive asset, we entrust them to a single uneducated dark age money hungry man?!

whatsapp is giving a voice and a platform to those who didn’t have one in the past. Especially, the women in our community, who have close to no say in matters of great importance.
In this case it was the danger girls were in at a school/ camp. Parents were entrusting their innocent Neshama’lech with a Rabbi Klein that is continuing to display, irresponsibly and reprehensibly, terrible judgement. Terrible judgement.
Nothing was done about it for years, YEARS. So many girls were at risk for such a long time UNTIL one brave woman courageously expressed her thoughts and feelings demanding something is done.
Immediately, it ended a dangerous situation. Spikey was tired.
I hope the women who haven’t given up their smartphones to the mob which wants to keep them voiceless realize the true power of social media in 2018 and utilize it for continued betterment of our beautiful community.

even if there is evidence you will still say it's not true.. it's just your nature not to believe such stories. it's no secret that many of our schools hush up things.. and kudos to Hikind for not letting up.

Do you really thin Hikind would continue to stir this, if he doesn't feel confident on the evidence he has? Hikind is not stupidit..

In fact why did Klein fire this guy?? that is the best evidence that something was fishy..

also in a court of law, the first thing a judge would ask Mr. Klein is, why did you fire this guy??

unfortunately Klal Yisroel is at a point where we need social media to expose wrongdoings.

It's a fact, in most of the Mosdos Hatorah, you can't come forward with any complaints about anything, otherwise you'll be shunned, it's just plainfull the honest truth.. so we need to turn to the internet.

He is using the same tactics as this N.Rosenberg fellow is using to bully and harass people they dislike or have a different approach to sensitives issues as this.

Mr.Hikind,since you announced that you are not running for office anymore your true colors are coming out. You know this community too well that you should wash dirty laundry on twitter and you tube.Very distasteful!

Unfortunately VIN gave Hikind again the platform to promote himself. Rabbi klein, albeit not perfect took matters seriously and we parents dont need Hikind to help us. We all got thru perfectly with Rabbi Klein. Sadly Hikind wants attention and cant fathom that there was a school that fortunately took care of this bad guy while he wasnt consulted or rather ignored.
We the parents, and Im talking in the name of many many are very happy how it was dealt with and we ask Dov to stick his nose out of here and to all you self haters that live off when sucha school as Bais Sura gets negative attention, all of u get a life and go check ur kids schools. Were all fine.

To those dismayed parents who are primarily concerned with protecting their own and the schools reputation even at the possible expense of their children there are really no words .

To those parents who are truly concerned , who would not turn a blind eye to possibility for abuse but at the same time are upset with Hikind , let the professionals deal with it..... Dont air dirty laundry in public...Let him be dismissed quietly...

To you I say, your trust in the professionals is misguided . They have proven themselves untrustworthy . The time for dealing with this quietly was a long time ago when the first or second allegation was brought to the Hanhalas attention .

Sadly the Hanhala took action only after this was shoved down their throat by the power of social media.

It's too late for you to claim everything is fine leave us alone .
No everything is not fine . Hikind is calling attention to an administration that does not truly care only when the have no choice .

Whatever Hikinds motives are is not the point . The concerns he brings up are valid and responsible parents should demand answers .

As we say “goyim” are constantly fired for anything they fall short of. So if he wernt fired then everyone wld raise hell and bow that he is fired, there is something fishy. Yes, he was supposed to be fired and that was the right thing to do. But that doesn’t give anyone the right to besmirch Rabbi Klein and the school faculty. He was a low animal and was fired. When would what be good enough for whom??? Damned whichever way with all u blabber mouths.

With all due respect, he is not a dictator. He rules with an iron hand and thats y the school has its well deserved name.
As we speak, Rabbi Klein cldve thrown many kids under the gutter for the right reasons and he chooses not to and many parents are upset but he wont fall for anyone because its the right thing to do. He wlnt sell out these yiddishe neshomos the ez way and deals with them proffesionally.
So all u Klein bashers jumpin on the band wagon when hes down, know how many girls he saved. Those girls wldve never been tolerated in any private school. None! So all u out there, watch ur filthy mouths and bear in mind, there’s another 3/4 of the story that u people will never know.

TO ALL those saying that Klein handled the situation well by firing 'Spikey'

I don't know, and I don't know how anyone would be able to know for sure that the allegations are or aren't true (Unless of course it is your child that had a story)

But since you seem to think that it is true and it was handled well, I would like to know what's wrong with you? Firing now - that the stories are floating to the surface - after so many years of hiding from the problam is a serious issue. How in the world can anyone take the responsibility of exposing young kids to such things?

So if you claim that it was handled well, you obviously aren't a 'proud parent of bais sara' as you claim to be. I can't believe that a normal parent would think like that when it's their kid on the line.

Again, I don't know how anyone can know that it is or isn't true. But thinking that it's true and making those comments are hopefully not true parents.

And what would actually doing need to be?

Are you saying that until something of the worst kind happens it's not a problem?

If yes, I honestly hope that you don't have daughters..

Throwing out children because parents removed a child from another class does not fall into the realm of being a dictator? Is there anyone in this school who does not fear "Rabbi Klein. He is like any other dictator he just had a tiny country which he is about to lose!!

I know a few ppl that were badly abused in school when they were kids, and just like yourself their parents also thought that everything was fine.
Dov Hinkind is doing the right thing bh exposing this terrible coverup.

To just hallucinate stuff that Spikey did cuz its the easy way out is not at all the way to go. I hava feeling all the negative commentary here have a personal agenda with Rabbi Klein and are excited to get back at him. Reserve ur hatred. Judging without knowing facts is not what a Yid does.
Can anyone say what wldve been the right thing to do with sucha fellow? FIRE HIM and that’s exactly what happnd.

Did the community learn nothing from Margolis and Applegrad protecting Kolko which allowed him to abuse more and more students each year????

Well then you and your daughter are one of the lucky ones. Shame on you for not caring about the others who weren’t so lucky. Pull your head out of the sand and start caring about others and not only yourself. Shame on you. You are as disgraceful as Klein. He fired him instead of turning him over to the police. What s menuval.

he should be exposed for misuse of his personal school for his own personal power gratification.....

My dear man, I trust Dov Hikind far more than I trust you, he's devoted the better part of his working life to the 'Klall' and has accomplished a lot. That said, it's safe to say whatever anyone says, parents, kids, according to you it's 'pinktfarkert' !!!

U may trust him with “your” kids but I wldnt trust him with my dog.

Well then you and your daughter are one of the lucky ones. Shame on you for not caring about the others who weren’t so lucky. Pull your head out of the sand and start caring about others and not only yourself. Shame on you. You are as disgraceful as Klein. He fired him instead of turning him over to the police. What s menuval.

U bet I care for all others. The so called harrased student is a friend of mine. Theyre misquoting her a zillion times. Ur head is stuck while Im seein the hatred above all. Sure theyre were behavior unsuitable but bot to make this racket. This is only revenge. I feel it in ur breath.

I am old, so forgive me.... WHY DID THESE LUNATIC PARENTS KEEP THEIR CHILDREN IN THAT SCHOOL? Why didn't they go to the authorities, or at least Dov Hikind, JCW, Rabbi Yaakov Horowitz etc? Why didn't they talk to each other?

I believe that things went on and that the menahel swept it under the rug, but where is the seichel of these parents? Not only were their children violated physically, they were violated emotionally when nothing was done and their situation just carried on. If a child can't rely on her parents to protect her, where can she turn?

As we say “goyim” are constantly fired for anything they fall short of. So if he wernt fired then everyone wld raise hell and bow that he is fired, there is something fishy. Yes, he was supposed to be fired and that was the right thing to do. But that doesn’t give anyone the right to besmirch Rabbi Klein and the school faculty. He was a low animal and was fired. When would what be good enough for whom??? Damned whichever way with all u blabber mouths.

Yes, goyim are fired, but "frum" predators aren't. At best they are shuffled to another job, and they certainly aren't reported to the authorities. Then parents are threatened (why they fall for it is beyond my comprehension.)

Guess your daughter wasn't approached, then. What a great attitude - your girls are OK, so to hell with the rest of them.

The issue here is that Nuchim Klein isn't saying 'I understand all your concerns, trust me nothing happened, I'm setting up a meeting with all and any parent(s) that have any concerns to speak openly about this, since no one can tell me you complained to me personally since we both know the truth.... Let's calm down..."

Instead he attacks anyone even talking about it as Lashan horah and threatend any girl / parent caught speaking about it will be expelled! He's acting like the parents don't have a right to be concerned.

Tell me, does this sound like someone who would take a complaint from a girl seriously if you dare offend HIS school?

He's HARDLY the victim. Act responsibly and address it without threats.

The Rabbi did not protect the girls in his care and now he is paying the price! If girls do not come back next year, so be it! Let them transfer to other yeshivas!! In this day and age there is plenty of competition and Rabbi Klein knows it!! Now he will have to pay the piper!

Thank G-D many people started to move out to Lakewood, Monsey, Staten Island etc. Now there is more classroom space available so that parents can shift their kids out to a more stable environment. Dictators always lose out in the end. They will get "Rabbi Klein" in the end just like they got Saddam!

Sadly, parents are worried that their children won't be accepted into any school and will go off the derech, and their worries are not completely unfounded; the schools are very exclusive and take no responsibility for the many children who are not accepted anywhere.

in the letter, Rabbi Klein says that that employee was terminated for what reason if he didn't do anything like he says??? and surprisingly there is evidence from parents and kids that things were happening, so how can he say that nothing happened? he wrote a letter and now everyone should be happy and quiet???

We have seen this narrative before . School owner digs in his heels to defend teacher despite the risk to students . Whats extraordinary here is that it was done for a janitor .
Rabbi Klein may be a nice amazing person but in this fundamental responsibility of protecting innocent children he has exhibited a tragic blind spot and a profound lack of good judgement.

To all parents who are bewildered by the uproar and are very concerned about reputation I ask , If there were concerns that someone was spreading HIV in the school would you be so forgiving for this foot dragging .
All forms of molestation can also under certain circumstances leave life long damage .
Just because you don't immediately see it does not mean it is not there .
It's bad enough that the owner of the school has a blind spot but to have parents defend it is sad.

The school situation is a tragedy in our time, and will, mark my words, be the complete unraveling of Klal Yisrael. We are already losing our children to the dictators who run our schools! Do not think these parent's can remove their daughters from the school. They cannot, because there is no where to put them. All the schools are run as a personal business, and even if there is a board -- so what?! The board is comprised of baal habatim, not educators, and not rabonim. We are living in a time where too many of our children do not have an appropriate school to attend. The system that has arisen needs to end, or it will be our end in a very short time!

I feel bad for the school for all their bad publicity. I tried placing my child there 8 years ago and Rabbi Klein did not want to accept her because of a Loshon Hora on my family which was not true and he found out later its not true.
Rabbl Klein called to apologize but by then my daughter was well settled into a different school. She graduated with great marks and now teaches in special ed .
I dont understand why Rabbi klein wouldnt come clean and say i am sorry it happened and i will make sure to change the way we handle such complaints.

I totally agree with your sentiment. I have been saying this for a while now. There are so many social issues going on now in the Frum community. Many of the issues points back to our leaders who do not think long term and have no clue at all what is going on out there. They are in their own little bubble. The system is starting to crash.

With all due respect, he is not a dictator. He rules with an iron hand and thats y the school has its well deserved name.
As we speak, Rabbi Klein cldve thrown many kids under the gutter for the right reasons and he chooses not to and many parents are upset but he wont fall for anyone because its the right thing to do. He wlnt sell out these yiddishe neshomos the ez way and deals with them proffesionally.
So all u Klein bashers jumpin on the band wagon when hes down, know how many girls he saved. Those girls wldve never been tolerated in any private school. None! So all u out there, watch ur filthy mouths and bear in mind, there’s another 3/4 of the story that u people will never know.

Shame on you. You choosevto judge “those girls”? Who are those girls you are referring to? Bnos Yisroel that he makes money off of.

Are you a parent in the school? Then your daughter is one of “those girls” if not you should shut your mouth because you are an idiot and you have no right to judge Hashem’s children.

If Kleun thinks about these girls like you do too wonder he allowed this to happen to them.

As sure as people are with the the negative, I am an inside parent and have knowledge u dont. He was a disgusting person and was chased out. To just hallucinate stuff that Spikey did cuz its the easy way out is not at all the way to go. I hava feeling all the negative commentary here have a personal agenda with Rabbi Klein and are excited to get back at him. Reserve ur hatred. Judging without knowing facts is not what a Yid does.
Can anyone say what wldve been the right thing to do with sucha fellow? FIRE HIM and that’s exactly what happnd.
Dov is just a lowlife politician sick for fame. It didnt go last wk so now hes trying again. Nice try Dov. Go get urself a job and dont find trouble that doesnt exist anymore.

He was a disgusting person who worked there for years and in the camp? What took do long them to fire such a disgusting person. You make no sense.

Nobody forced anyone to send their child to a school they don't want too. there are choices out there as well as help.
Don't just play the blame game, you should know better.

Dont worry so much. Old age sets in too early if u do.
We at Bais Sure School are being taken care of while u people are being taken on a ride of hatred down the slippery slope.
My daughter and her frienda are ALL ok emotionally and physically. They were not abused. There was an inappropriate goy that was sent away and the school is doing great.
We are all parents with open eyes and our kids are in a very safe environment. Dov helped nothing. He only exasperated the matzav so all u people bashers shld hava good day. It wont help u. Were all standing behind our school and are proud parents of great kids.
Thanku all.

Mr. Heyward: the only way I can come up with a jew with such a name is u probably live in Williamsburg on Heyward Street. Let me tell you that in Williamsburg the culture is hiding everything under the cushion even when it comes to your own family and children. Not to say that other areas are much better but not so bad.
If you would have this happen to your child would you want someone to fight for your child's safety? You really believe BP elected Dov 8 times because he failed the community? Now you talking about Don funneling millions in a phony account?
There is NO bigger Loshon Hora then this because Dov was never ever found guilty on and crime whereas a few of your Yeshivas have lately been in the headlines for stealing $$$ from Lunch programs, so please keep your nasty comments to yourself and let DOV finish his carreer in dignity and the respect he deserves.

Predictable. Sigh. No wonder no normal person takes VIN seriously. When did VIN become a cheap tabloid, for sale to the highest bidder?
