Voyeur rabbi kicked out of synagogue

Barry Freundel, the peeping tom rabbi from District of Columbia, has been fired by his synagogue:
WASHINGTON, D.C. - A rabbi who's been charged with secretly videotaping women in a ritual bath has been fired by his synagogue.

The board of directors at Kesher Israel announced Monday that it has terminated Barry Freundel's contract. Freundel had been suspended without pay since his arrest in October. He faces six counts of voyeurism after police found a clock radio with a hidden camera in the shower area of a ritual bath, known as a mikvah, in the District of Columbia synagogue. He has pleaded not guilty.

The board says Freundel's alleged actions constituted "a gross violation" of law, privacy and trust with far-reaching consequences.
To be sure, they've already taken effect, and people like him must be held accountable for the embarrassment they've caused. I hope the RCA is now employing female rabbis and mikveh attendants more seriously, if they want to repair public trust.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
