 Givat Zeev rabbi accused of rape and fraud

The State Attorney's Office announced Monday that Rabbi Moshe Yazdi, 59, has been charged with seven counts of rape and fraud against women in his community in Givat Zeev.

This is reported by The Jerusalem Post.

The rabbi deceived his followers into believing that he had special powers and could “purify” women, “having descended to their uncleanness.” In addition, the rabbi made the women believe that he was acting in accordance with the Jewish Law.

The accused also persuaded the victims to give him hundreds of thousands of shekels.
