Jerusalem rabbi arrested for 'holding women in slavery'

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-51098770

Israeli police have arrested a rabbi who is suspected of holding around 50 women and children in conditions of slavery.

The arrest follows a raid on a complex in Jerusalem, where the alleged victims are believed to have been kept isolated from their families.

The women had been punished in various ways and had money stolen from them, police said.

The suspect, in his 60s, has denied doing anything wrong.

He and eight female accomplices are suspected of isolating the women in a residential complex, along with children up to the age of five, it added.

Video footage showed bunk beds in cramped living quarters, along with piles of cash.
Blimey, that's a lot of "slaves" .....

I wonder what their nationality is .....

He is very naughty, the bible clearly lays out the conditions and treatment of slaves but Leviticus clearly states that no Israelite may become a slave because all Israelites are servants of God. He is up shit creek without a paddle and no doubt god will smote him.

Re: Jerusalem rabbi arrested for 'holding women in slavery'

It's not unusual amongst the fanatics of any religion or social group. But the word "slave" is inappropriate in this case because they were NOT slaves. The argument (and IMO a bloody awful one) would be that the men were keeping the women and girls pure and living a good observant life.

IMO the men were probably members of the Mashugana sect.

The Israel Police arrested a Jerusalem resident Monday on suspicion that he ran a cult, which he had allegedly used to enslave and sexually abuse dozens of women and children, at the Be'er Miriam religious seminary in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Geula.

The man was arrested for similar crimes in 2015, but was released after women living in the compound testified on his behalf. He was arrested Monday after women, who had left the compound after studying there, reported their experiences to the police.
Ah, a "cult" .....

Police forces raided the compound in the morning accompanied by welfare officials and representatives of the Israeli Center for Victims of Cults. Along with the main suspect, eight women were arrested on suspicion of cooperating with him in running the cult.
