A startling new report is undermining a widely-shared stereotype about Jewish residents of New York. New figures show a quarter of all Jews here in the Big Apple aren't wealthy - but instead are today classified as living in poverty. In the last decade New York has seen a huge increase in poverty amongst Jewish communities. Nearly one in four Jews are considered poor, compared to one in five in 2002. They're statistics that stand in stark contrast to many people's idea of New York Jews owning vast amounts of money and property. And of the five boroughs in the city, Brooklyn is the hardest hit. Nearly 45% of the population here is poor. it's where many Hasidic Orthodox Jews live. But large families are common and for the men studying their religion is considered to be more important than earning money. Further fuelling the problems of poverty. The Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty also runs outreach programmes, like soup kitchens. Poverty is nothing new for the Jewish community in New York. At the start of 1900s two and half million Jews came to America, over a million of them settling in New York. The majority arrived with very few possessions, often little more than the shirt of their back. Many thousands received help from other Jews who had settled in the city during the 1800s and who now set up support organisations to give out food to the newly arrived. This map displays how a Jewish philanthropy distributed food and particularly ritual food for the holiday of ... Less

Here in the normally sleepy Ukrainian town of Uman, in central Ukraine, an extraordinary festival is underway. Thousands of Jews from around the world have made a pilgrimage to visit the burial site of the legendary Rabbi Nachman of Breslov, for Rosh Hashana. A Hasidic master Rabbi Nachman was a great-grandson of the founder of Hasidism, the Baal Shem Tov. The Rosh Hashana pilgrimage dates back to 1811, the year after Nachman died and Breslov Hassidim and other Jews have come every year since to ask forgiveness for their sins and celebrate the holy new year. After the collapse of communism, in 1989, the number of Jews travelling to Uman dramtically increased. From 2000 in 1990 to approaching 30000 today. Locals are concerned that the event is becoming almost unmanagemable. But for Jews who come here every year, the pilgramage has become the most important date in their religious calendar and the long and arduous journey to Uman is most definitely a price worth paying.

Five young girls were seriously injured Monday afternoon, when a van jumped the curb in the Rockland County community of New Square, and slammed right into them. As CBS 2's Lou Young reported, the girls were playing on a front lawn in the village of New Square -- a Hasidic enclave within the town of Ramapo -- when the Five-Star Home Medical Supplies van came roaring up and mowed them down. The van then knocked an electrical box off of its base and sent sparks flying. The five injured girls were taken to a local hospital by ambulance. One was seriously injured that she was near death and had to be revived in the ambulance on the way to Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla, authorities said. Three of the girls were taken to Westchester Medical Center, while two more were taken to Nyack Hospital in Midland, officials said. Ramapo police, the town supervisor, and witnesses were horrified by what they saw. "They're right in their yard on the driveway playing, and the vehicle came down and mowed right over them," said Ramapo Town Supervisor Christopher St. Lawrence. "We have no markings of any brakes that were hit or anything at this time. We have our crime and our traffic people working at the scene right now. We are pulling tapes from cameras that are on this street, and we may have actual footage of the accident itself." "You know, they tell that your child's in this ambulance, your child is in this, it's very, very messy," said witness Manny Spirra. "It's very, very scary ... Less

It was an emotional and dramatic showdown in court. A young woman faced a prominent member of the ultra-Orthodox Jewish community whom she accuses of molesting her as a child. The tightly knit Hasidic community is now bitterly divided over this case. Prosecutors say Nechemya Weberman victimized the girl for three years, beginning when she was 12. It allegedly took place an office next door to his Williamsburg apartment, where she claims Weberman undressed her, sexually abused her and forced her to perform oral sex. "Saying 'stop' didn't seem to work," she told the jury, "I froze. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know how to respond, I didn't know how to fight back. My whole body went numb." Weberman is a prominent member of Brooklyn's ultra-orthodox Satmar community. He was hired by the girl's family to counsel their rebellious daughter. They met for four hours a day and as many as four times a week. "He said, 'I'm not doing anything wrong. I'm not doing anything you don't want me to do,'" she said. Yet she told no one for years. "Why not?" asked the prosecutor. "I was scared," she answered. Many in the community support Weberman and raised money for his defense. They insist he's being framed by a girl who despises ultra-Orthodox Judaism. Her supporters say that's outrageous. "She should be treated as a heroine!" said Rabbi Yakov Horowitz, the alleged victim's supporter. Less

An unlicensed counselor in Brooklyn's ultra-orthodox Jewish community faces 25 years in prison when he's sentenced Tuesday for the sexual abuse of a girl who came to him with questions about her faith. Nechemya Weberman was convicted in December of sustained sexual abuse of a child and other charges. He could get more jail time on some of the lesser charges. Weberman was not a licensed counselor but spent decades working with couples and families in his community. The girl, now 18, testified for days about the abuse. She said it started when she was 12 and lasted until she was 15. She had been questioning her faith and her teachers felt she was straying from the right path, so they sent her to Weberman for guidance. Instead, she said, he molested her. But there was no physical evidence. The defense argued that the girl was angry that Weberman had told her parents she had a boyfriend at age 15, forbidden in her community. They said the girl was a liar and the case was a simple he said, she said. Weberman also testified, saying he "never, ever" abused the girl. The trial put a spotlight on the fiercely private Satmar Hasidic sect, to which Weberman and the girl both belonged. Many donated thousands of dollars to Weberman's defense fund and never believed he molested the young girl. "He would never do such a thing, not near such a thing and it hurts me very much," Williamsburg resident Yuchezarun Roth said. Others praised the teen for going against her family and some say ...
