Jerusalem ‘Cult’ Rabbi Barred From Teaching Girls

The Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court has barred Rabbi Aharon Ramati from teaching girls and from managing any educational institution for at least 70 days.

Ramati, the former head of the Be’er Miriam seminary in Jerusalem, is accused of operating the seminary like a “cult.” Former students claim they were unable to leave, and were encouraged to break off contact with their families.

The judge’s official ruling is that Ramati is barred from “managing, directly or indirectly, this seminary or any other educational institution including as a teacher, acting as a supervisory rabbi or spiritual counselor for 70 days or until an indictment is filed, the earlier of the two.”
