Israel’s haredi-controlled state-sponsored Chief Rabbinate announced today that Rabbi Yehuda Rosilio, the former rabbi of Moshav Brosh in southern Israel, has been ‘defrocked.’ Rosilio stole Torah scrolls from his own community’s synagogue and sold them.

He pleaded guilty late last year and his formal conviction was entered last week.

According to the the Times of Israel, the Chief Rabbinate took the action as part of what it reportedly claims is a new policy to strip the title of rabbi from any rabbi proved guilty of a crime.

The scrolls Rosilio stole are worth approximately $130,000.

~You see, Jews do rat on each other, just not when it comes to defrocking young children.
