Dear Sir / Ma’am:
Daniel Greer and his now defunct boarding school Yeshiva of New Haven were recently found liable in a civil jury trial in the amount of $15 million in the Federal District Court for the District of Hartford in the case of Eliyahu Mirlis v. Daniel Greer, et al, 3:16 cv 00678. Daniel Greer was found liable for raping a former student at his now defunct private boarding school located at 765 Elm Street, New Haven, CT.
During this civil trial the former principal of the Greer school, Avi Hack, testified that he was repeatedly raped as a minor at 765 Elm Street, and in other buildings located in close proximity to 765 Elm Street, buildings owned by non-profit entities controlled by Daniel Greer. During the civil trial Dr. Julian Ford, a professor of psychiatry at the University of Connecticut, testified that the plaintiff Mirlis suffered Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome due to the trauma inflicted by Daniel Greer. Dr. Ford testified that there was evidence that Daniel Greer molested his own children Ezi Greer and / or Dov Greer. Ezi Greer lives in Waterbury, CT. I have been told that there are other victims who have not come forward. Attorney Antonio Ponvert of Koskoff, Koskoff & Beider would have additional information about other victims, information that was not admitted into evidence during the civil trial.
Upon information and belief, at the present time a man by the name of Rabbi Notis, from Lakewood, NJ, runs a private boarding school with minor students in the very buildings where Avi Hack and Eli Mirlis were raped by Daniel Greer as students. I am requesting that the State conduct an investigation into the relationship between Daniel Greer and Rabbi Notis. I have heard that Rabbi Notis is either getting paid by Daniel Greer, or is not paying Mr. Greer any money for the use of these buildings. I have been told that Daniel Greer is in close contact with these minors on a daily basis, and Daniel Greer has access to the buildings in which these minors sleep every night.
I believe that Rabbi Notis should be investigated in order to determine whether he is in violation of § 53-21 of the Connecticut Criminal Code. § 53-21 of the Connecticut Criminal Code provides the following: “(a) Any person who (1) wilfully or unlawfully causes or permits any child under the age of sixteen years to be placed in such a situation that the life or limb of such child is endangered, the health of such child is likely to be injured or the morals of such child are likely to be impaired, or does any act likely to impair the health or morals of any such child, shall be guilty of …. a class C felony for a violation of subdivision (1)… of this subsection…”
The Connecticut Supreme Court has interpreted § 53-21: “The general purpose of § 53-21 is to protect the physical and psychological well-being of children from the potentially harmful conduct of adults… both parts of the statute are intended to protect children from predatory and potentially harmful conduct of adults… the first part of § 53-21 prohibits the willful creation of a ‘situation’ likely to impair the health of a child and thus encompasses the protection of the body as well as the safety and security of the environment in which the child exists, and for which the adult is responsible. The plain language of the first part of § 53-21 indicates the legislature’s understanding that there is a broad class of intentional conduct that can put a child’s well-being seriously at risk without any physical contact by the perpetrator…” State v. Payne.
I do not have firsthand knowledge of the information I set forth above. I did not witness Daniel Greer rape anyone. I am requesting that the State of Connecticut conduct an investigation in order to determine whether any criminal laws are currently being violated.
Very Truly Yours,
A Concerned Citizen
