Washington, DC – Women secretly recorded by DC Rabbi seek $100M in lawsuit


A group of women who were secretly videotaped by a D.C. rabbi announced Tuesday that they are seeking $100 million in a lawsuit. The lawsuit was expanded Tuesday to include the Orthodox court that oversaw Rabbi Barry Freundel, Beth Din of America. Freundel was convicted of voyeurism after he pleaded guilty to taping 52 women as they prepared for the ritual bath known as mikvah. “The women who were going to the mikvah expected a sacred and private space,” said Alexandra Harwin, senior litigation counsel with Sanford Heisler LLC. “And that is a space that was invaded by Rabbi Freundel, and those invasions were facilitated by the other religious institutional defendants in this action.”
