Report: Accused rabbi’s office at Towson U. contains evidence


Tiny cameras and memory cards capable of holding hundreds of thousands of images were found in the Towson University office of Rabbi Barry Freundel, the Washington Post reported last week.

The memory cards and flash drives, as well as a photo of naked women and a handwritten list of names, were found in the rabbi’s office on the campus near Baltimore during a police search, the Post reported Oct. 24.

Freundel, an Orthodox leader and rabbi at Washington’s Kesher Israel synagogue, was arrested Oct. 14 for allegedly installing a clock radio with a hidden camera in the shower room of the synagogue’s mikvah. He is believed to have secretly filmed women showering and undressing.
