WASHINGTON - The Jewish outreach official for New York Republicans quit not long after he was hired because of revelations of his ties to an anti-Zionist haredi group.

Yossi Gestetner, named June 12 as director of Jewish Outreach for the New York Republican State Committee, quit Wednesday after The Jewish Channel published a detailed account of his PR work on behalf of True Torah Jews Against Zionism.

The investigative report showed Gestetner also advocated other controversial positions, including the custom among the haredi Orthodox to consult with a rabbinical authority before reporting child molestation to the police.
