The lawsuit against alleged mikvah voyeur Rabbi Barry Freundel has been expanded, ABC 7’s Joce Sterman reported.
At a press conference today, a new amended complaint was released that says students from Towson University were encouraged by Freundel to "go on field trips" to use the mikvah in which Freundel allegedly had a hidden camera set up to video record.
Two new plaintiffs were added to the suit, one of whom claims that Freundel made her do "practice dunks” as part of her conversion process. The other new plaintiff was one of Freundel’s students at Towson.
And, along with Freundel’s former synagogue Kesher Israel and the Capital Mikvah he controlled, the Rabbinical Council of America (RCA), which previously investigated Freundel for other alleged misbehavior with female conversion candidates but took no action against him and did not warn the public, has been added to the lawsuit as a defendant.
