News from the Mea Shearim Mother


Since last summer we keep on hearing all kind of news about the Mea Shearim mother who is accused of having abused one of her younger sons. The whole case became famous because the mother is a member of the extreme chassidic group Toldot Aharon. Further, the accusations from the social workers of Jerusalem's municipality as well as from the Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital have cause wild demonstrations in Mea Shearim.

A few months ago, the hearings at Jerusalem's District Court began and then the mother gave birth to another son. Since she has been claiming that she cannot stand up anymore and is hospitalized at Hadassah Har HaZofim in Jerusalem.

Only last Monday, the Brit Milah (circumcision) of the newborn took place because he was born premature. The babyboy had reached 3kg and the Toldot Aharon celebrated the Brit. The Rebbe and the Rebbitzen attended the ceremony. Otherwise it must have been quite sad because the mother is in hospital, some of the older children stay with the grandfather in England and the "abused" son lives with his uncle in Beit Shemesh.

I feel sorry for little Yaakov Dov who was born into such a mess.
