Tropper Agrees to Leave Monsey

Disgraced rabbi may have avoided formal condemnation

Print Email

Rabbi Leib Tropper, the ultra-Orthodox conversion guru who has been accused of soliciting sex from prospective converts, has resigned from the yeshiva he previously led, this time for real (unlike last time he resigned, when he didn’t really). It took the threat of a significant proclamation from a group of rabbis to get him to do it, 5 Towns Jewish Times reports (via Failed Messiah). Tropper additionally will leave Haredi enclave Monsey, New York, in the next few months.

“Leib Tropper Scandal Finally Put To Rest,” reads the 5TJT headline. While that remains to be seen, barring further revelations what this arrangement may have accomplished is to forestall a Beit Din—a formal rabbinic court that would have investigated and, presumably, condemned Tropper.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at letters@tabletmag.com. Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

I enjoy it when individuals come collectively and share opinions, excellent blog, keep it up.

I want to tell you that your blog is highly praised. It gives me new thoughts as well as it is written with simplicity unlike those complex ones i’ve read. Thank you for your post, may i still see those in the future! ;)

The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
