A video has gone viral of a Rebbe in a Yeshiva in Monsey beating a student, who appears to be around 15 years old. The boy is seen (in the very unclear video) on the floor, and the Rebbe then screaming at him to leave the classroom. The video made its way to Twitter, where local news agencies have picked up on it.
Yeshiva Shaar Ephraim gave the following statement to YWN moments ago to be publicized:
“The behavior shown on the video is abhorrent and has no place in an educational institution. We unequivocally condemn any such behavior. We are also glad that the faculty member seen on the video seperated from our school several years ago.”
YWN notes that the video is at least three years old.
