BERLIN - Prosecutors in Germany's capital city dismissed a criminal complaint lodged against popular local Rabbi Yitshak Ehrenberg over "causing bodily harm" by performing ritual circumcision, according to a document obtained by The Jerusalem Post on Thursday.

Senior representatives from the Simon Wiesenthal Center told the Post on Wednesday that Berlin is considering opposition to the enforcement of a Cologne court case outlawing circumcision.

A complaint was filed against the Jerusalem-born rabbi on July 12.  The prosecution’s dismissal document concluded that there is no proof to establish that the Rabbi’s conduct met the” condition of a criminal” violation.
