Tropper Didn’t Actually Resign

Disgraced rabbi still running yeshiva

Remember when Rabbi Leib Tropper—the ultra-Orthodox conversion guru since disgraced by sex scandal allegations—resigned from the Monsey, New York, yeshiva he had been heading? Yeah, turns out he still is the de facto rosh yeshiva. It’s not clear how long that will remain the case, though, now that the cat has departed from that particular bag.

Meanwhile, an informal rabbinic court has been hearing evidence, and is prepared to convene a formal Beit Din—which would have the power to condemn Tropper under Jewish law, and, just as importantly, would license other rabbis to do so—as early as next week. It is still unknown whether Tropper will cooperate with it.
