Amid reports that Rabbi Eliezer Berland received citizenship in S. Africa and can no longer be extradited to Israel, it is now reported that dozens of police on Friday night tried to arrest Rabbi Eliezer Berland once again.
According to reports from the rav’s chassidim, dozens of police arrived during the Friday night seuda to arrest Rav Berland, who is still wanted by police in Israel.
Reports adds the chassidim have taken such an eventuality into consideration and they had an escape plan and entrance ready.
As soon as police arrived the chassidim began singing and they provided sufficient cover for Rav Berland to make his escape.
As such, the rav is once again holed up in an undisclosed location.
