In 2000, Rosenblatt and the newspaper won the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism from the Journalism Center on Children & Families for the story "Stolen Innocence", an investigative report that uncovered allegations of decades of child abuse by a youth movement leader and high school principal, Baruch Lanner. The story was initially criticized for being "malicious gossip". The revelations were seen as a "watershed in the way the Orthodox community addresses sexual abuse" and led to Lanner's resignation and conviction.
