Haifa’s Sephardic Chief Rabbi Shlomo Shlush is reportedly being investigated by the the Anti-Fraud Unit of the Israel National Police. Police told the press yesterday that Shlush allegedly exploited his position as chief rabbi, using it to give favors to his associates.
Police think Shlush awarded kashrut certificates food processors in exchange for donations, and that he illegally forced kashrut supervisors to give him “incriminating” information about his opponents.
