In a shocking move, the CEO of International Fellowship of Christians and Jews George Mamo has quit following accusations that he sexually harassed two of his employees.

According to an article by Haaretz, his decision to resign comes just after a US court decision was made to move ahead with the sexual harrassment lawsuit brought forward by the two former employees.
A decision to proceed was handed down by a district court in Illinois last month after the IFCJ reportedly submitted an appeal to dismiss the case. 


The court rejected the appeal.


Sources told Haaretz, that despite the pending lawsuit, it's believed he was set to stay on as CEO for another two years.


The court documents say that one of the women charged that he had "stared at her breasts... refused to promote her because she would not have sex with him,” while the other woman "reported similar conduct" and that he had fired her because she was a woman.


This comes just several months after Yechiel Eckstein the founder of the philanthropic organization, which raises millions for Israel, died suddenly.
