March 20, 1987

A Jewish Orthodox rabbi is facing deportation from Israel to the United States to face child-molesting charges. Israel's Justice Ministry said a deportation order is being prepared against Avrohom Mondrowitz, who moved to Israel two years ago after operating a child psychology clinic in Brooklyn. A 1984 New York arrest warrant accused Mondrowitz of sex abuse and endangering the welfare of a child. He has denied the charges. U.S. officials asked Israel to deport Mondrowitz shortly after he moved to Israel, but former Interior Minister Yitzhak Peretz denied the request. Peretz recently left office, and U.S. authorities again sought deportation.
