Wayward clergy by the numbers: Is it rampant or an aberration?
Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA), January 2007
How extensive is the problem of clergy sex abuse in the Jewish community? It depends which criteria are used as a yardstick.

Judging by the tiny caseload, the problem appears to be negligible -- unless, of course, wrongdoing by rabbis and other clergymen is underreported, as some observers maintain.
