Rabbi Shmuel Shalosh

Haifa District prosecutors informed Rabbi Shmuel Shalosh, Haifa's Chief Sephardic Rabbi, Thursday, that Attorney General Yehudah Weinstein is considering putting Rabbi Shalosh on corruption charges, subject to a hearing.

The Haifa prosecutors and the State Prosecutor's Office have recommended that Rabbi Shalosh be prosecuted for two incidents including suspicion of fraud and breach of trust. A third incident involves an allegation that the rabbi abused his position.
