Channel 2 Claims Emmanuel Fracas Was About Child Abuse

A Channel Two investigative report ("360") claims that the dramatic split a year ago in the Emmanuel community,  between mainly balei teshuva (newly orthodox) Sephardim, and the Slonim Chasidic group, and which spread nationwide, was not solely about racism - but also about a child abuse case.


  1. A lot of good Chareidim wrote very sophisticated pieces to refuse the whole racism angle of the original story. If this turns out to be true, what defence will they offer this time?
