The chief rabbi of Kiryat Bialik was charged on Tuesday in the Krayot Magistrate's Court for committing sexual harassment and indecent acts against several female Kiryat Bialik Religious Council workers. The charge sheet claims that Rabbi Aminadav Krispin, 75, had on three different occasions sexually harassed women. The earliest incident took place over ten years ago. The indictment presented by prosecutor Rali Gutman of the Haifa District Attorney's office also includes a count of witness tampering, after the rabbi allegedly threatened one of the complainants against making her case public in a local newspaper.
