The Jerusalem District Attorney filed an indictment against a haredi rabbi, 78-year-old Moshe Shapira**, for soliciting aggravated assault, Ynet reported.
Shapiro told a father whose children were allegedly abused by pedophiles to beat up Sarah Vorst, and elderly woman the father and others suspected of running a pedophile ring in the Nachlaot neighborhood of Jerusalem.
According to the indictment, Shapira allegedly told the parents to beat Vorst until she is hospitalized.
"I don't care if there won't be a person left to hospitalize,” Shapira allegedly ordered.
The father and three other suspects went to Vorst’s home in Nachlaot, tied her up and beat her for about an hour and a half.
She was hospitalized in serious condition for days.
While in the house, the assailants searched for evidence of the pedophile ring, including a purported tunnel linking her home to the home of known pedophile Avrohom Mondrowitz and hours of alleged videotapes of the child sexual abuse.
No tunnel was found. No tapes were found. No credible evidence that Vorst is a pedophile or ran a pedophile ring has ever been found.
Vorst – a convert herself – ran a school for women seeking to convert to Judaism. The school operated under the guidance of Rabbi Nachum Eisenstein, who was the late haredi leader Rabbi Yosef Shalom Elyahiv’s point man for the conversion issue.
Vorst was at one time accused by local haredim of being a christian missionary becaue she was a convert surrounded by potential converts.
She was also accused by students of extorting them to force them to pay money for classes and life coaching they did not need or want.
Vorst’s name and most of the details of the crime are redacted from Israeli news reports, including Ynet's, and from the publicly available indictment, and are exclusively reported by FailedMessiah.com.
**While it is still unclear, "Rabbi Moshe Shapira" seems to be Rabbi Moshe Shapiro, the haredi gadol and longtime nemesis of Rabbi Natan Slifkin.
Update 6:08 pm CDT – Rabbi Natan Slifkin confirms that the indicted rabbi is indeed that Moshe Shapiro.
