Beth Din Breakin

כ"ג תמוז ה' אלפים תשס"ז


Last Saturday night, 7 July, a break-in occurred at the office of the Melbourne Beth Din which is located on the campus of the St Kilda Hebrew Congregation, in Charnwood Crescent, St Kilda. The intruder caused minor damage and took a sum of money from a drawer, however a careful check has indicated that no files which deal with current and past gittin and conversion cases are missing or have been tampered with.

Investigating police believe that the incident was a common robbery with no specific anti-Semitic overtones, and the perpetrator was probably looking for money for drugs.

Kol Tuv, Sincerely
Rabbi Meir Shlomo Kluwgant
President, Rabbinical Council of Victoria
Acting Chair, Beth din nominees
