Nahman Berland Son Rabbi Eliezer Berland Remain Behind Bars

Rabbi Nachman Berland

The Jerusalem Magistrate Court on Tuesday extended the remand of Shuvu Banim Yeshiva suspects Rabbi Nachman Berland and his son Nosson until Tuesday. 

Two other suspects were also held over until Tuesday. The court will reevaluate their incarceration ahead of Rosh Hashanah.

The suspects were arrested about two months ago after investigators and tax agents deiced their clandestine investigation yielded sufficient evidence.

Members of the community report that Rabbi Eliezer Berland, Nachman’s father, is monitoring events from Morocco, where he is living. At present, it appears highly unlikely that these members of the Berland family will be celebrating Rosh Hashanah in Uman as is their minhag.
