Acknowledging failure on sex allegations, Rabbi Lamm resigns from YU

In a letter announcing his resignation, Yeshiva University’s chancellor, Rabbi Norman Lamm, acknowledged his failure to respond adequately to allegations of sexual abuse against YU rabbis in the 1980s.

Lamm, now 85, became the school’s third president and head of its rabbinic school, the Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary, in 1976. He stepped down as president in 2003, becoming chancellor, but stayed on as RIETS’s head.
