The office of Rabbi Menachem Carmel, a member of Rabbi Shmuel Auerbach's Netzach ultra-conservative breakaway faction from United Torah Judaism, was broken into on Shabbat. Apparently only documents related to UTJ housing deals from Carmel's days as UTJ's housing point man were taken. The two male burglars wore masks (and were probably Israeli Arabs or non-Jewish Russians hired to do the job). The theft appears to be related to the split with UTJ.
Yeshiva World reports:
The office of Rabbi Menachem Carmel of the Yerushalmi/Netzach faction of Degel Hatorah was broken into on shabbos morning at about 06:30. Video surveillance shows masked men inside. They made off with documents pertaining to his work in the party’s Vaad Diyor, the housing committee addressing housing issues for the party’s tzibur.
The main office of Carmel, located atop his Bar Kol supermarket at 6 Shlomo HeMelech in Bnei Brak was targeted by two men. The break in was discovered by a security office on motzei shabbos. A complaint was filed with police.
Netzach spokesman Rabbi Yaakov Friedman told the media that the surveillance footage clearly shows the two operated calmly as they searched for documents, uninterested in money. He confirms that they made off with “important documents” pertaining to the Vaad Diyor’s work.
