Rosh Yeshiva Arrested by Israel Police
November 27, 2008
The rosh yeshiva of Yeshivat Yeshu'at Mordechai, located in the Shomron community of Nachliel, Rabbi Yigal Shendorfi, was arrested on Tuesday night. According to YWN contacts in the community, the rabbi's arrest is seen as deterrence, sending a message that the authorities are now taking a harder stance, a lower-tolerance policy for residents of yishuvim in Yehuda and Shomron.
Police waited for the rav as he traveled home, picking him up at the Kiryat Sefer Checkpoint. It appears that he is being held for alleged illegal activity in connection with protests that took place in the summer at the Yad Yair Outpost, near Nachliel.
According to authorities, a number of security personnel and vehicles were injured and damaged as a result of the actions of youths at the outpost.
Rav Shendorfi is being arraigned on Wednesday with the state requesting he be held in incarceration. Attorney Naftali Wurtzburger is representing the rav.
