Cleveland Jewish News


A court appearance for Rabbi Ephraim Karp was scheduled for Jan. 28 in Queens Criminal Court in New York, a spokesperson for the Queens district attorney’s office said.

After Karp’s hearing, it was expected that authorities in Maryland would pick him up and transport him there to face charges in that state, the spokesperson said.

Karp, director of spiritual living at Menorah Park Center for Senior Living in Beachwood, was arrested Jan. 15 in New York on an active felony warrant issued by the District Court of Maryland, Baltimore County. The Baltimore County Police Department has obtained the arrest warrant, according to a Jan. 22 press release from the department.

The press release stated Karp has been identified as a suspect in connection with the sexual abuse of a minor in Baltimore County. On Dec. 31, Baltimore County police received information that a juvenile female living in Baltimore County had been sexually abused over a period of time by the suspect, listed as Frederick Martin Karp in the press release.
