Rabbi Eliezer Berland May Celebrate Purim in South Africa

Rabbi Eliezer Berland, who left Israel against a backdrop of allegations of sexual offenses, may mark next month's Purim holiday in Johannesburg, South Africa. 

The Breslov follower lived in Morocco but was banished by royal decree after the king read of the allegations in Israel.

Rabbi Berland reportedly went from Morocco to Zimbabwe or South Africa so as to avoid extradition to Israel. He will reportedly meet with a handful of followers in Johanessburg to avoid problems in the place he now calls home.
