To avoid a schism, the leadership of London’s Haredi community has ousted the shul run by Rabbi Chaim Halpern
By Miriam Shaviv December 24, 2012, 8:10 pm
LONDON — In an unprecedented and potentially explosive move, the Union of Orthodox Hebrew Congregations, the umbrella organization for Britain’s Orthodox institutions, has expelled a synagogue led by a rabbi accused of sexual misconduct.
Beth Hamedrash Divrei Chaim, in the London neighborhood of Golders Green, is headed by Rabbi Chaim Halpern, a former religious judge in the Union and one of the city’s most senior Haredi rabbis. He was forced to resign all of his public positions in November following allegations that he had engaged in “inappropriate” conduct with about 30 women coming to him for counseling, but retained leadership of his shul, which is located in his house.
Since then, a group of local rabbis and religious judges have called on him to resign from his pulpit as well, to no avail. In response to intense pressure from the Haredi public, the Union agreed to set up a beth din, or religious court, to try the case, but it has yet to convene.
According to one source, the expulsion of Divrei Chaim means that the beth din is now unlikely to go ahead, as Halpern is no longer affiliated with the Union.
It will also remove the issue of Halpern’s conduct from the agenda of the local rabbis, as he has effectively become a private individual.
“As far as we are concerned, the job is now done,” said one rabbi involved in efforts to persuade Halpern to step down. “The Union doesn’t want anything to do with him anymore.”
When several senior Golders Green rabbis issued a statement calling on Halpern to resign,”the Union fought it, as it it was completely invalid,” the rabbi said. “Now they have seen there is no way out.”
