Rabbinical Court Shuts Down Jerusalem Yeshiva Suspected of Abuse

A Haredi rabbinical court has shut down the Be’er Yehuda yeshiva in Jerusalem after the two rabbinic brothers who are deans there have been indicted by the court on suspicions of sexual abuse. Yitzhak Tufik and Moshe Tufik were found to have committed ‘severe and obscene transgressions’ against students and parents are now forbidden to send their children to the Sanhedria neighborhood high school. Rabbi Yaakov Peretz led the beis din, along with other prominent other rabbis, who said that the Tufik brothers “constitute a severe danger to the yeshiva students.” The brothers have been rabbinically prohibited from having contact with any youth. Police are now also investigating. Read more here.
