Default Sex offender rabbi Berland remanded in miracles-for-cash probe

Sex offender rabbi Berland remanded in miracles-for-cash probe

When attorney for elderly rabbi raises concerns over his health, judge suggests he take Mentos mints, which he allegedly gave out as a ‘wonder drug’

13 February 2020

The Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court on Thursday extended by eight days the detention of Rabbi Eliezer Berland, a convicted sex offender who has been arrested anew for allegedly fleecing millions of shekels from terminally ill patients by promising miraculous recoveries.

Judge Sharon Lary-Bavly wrote in her decision that Berland “cynically exploited” his alleged victims by, among other things, giving “Mentos to patients under the guise of medication.”
