Parents Allegedly Seriously Abused Their Children For Failing To Daven Or Dress Immodestly

The Jerusalem District Prosecutor on Monday, 8 Iyar, filed an indictment against three defendants, parents and a son, members of the chareidi tzibur. The charges include abuse of minors.

According to the indictment, the parents used physical and verbal violence against their children, beating them, throwing objects, cursing and locking them in their rooms or outside the house for a long time.

According to the indictment, the parents used to beat the children for discipline and punishment in cases where they “dressed immodestly” or did not get up to daven, and also took various punishments to humiliate the children, including locking them outside the house and beating them in the street.

The indictment states that over the years there have been many cases of outbursts of anger towards the children, among other things, that the parents beat their daughter with a hammer for “immodest clothing.”

According to the State Attorney’s Office, the defendants committed physical and mental abuse of the minors for whom they were responsible.

The State Prosecutor’s Office seeks to arrest the defendants until the end of legal proceedings against them.
