The Meah Shearim mother was indicted in the Jerusalem District Court on Tuesday and will face criminal charges of abusing her infant son.
Messages released from the Meah Shearim community indicate the violent riots seen due to the arrest of the mother would be renewed if she is taken into custody again or if the terms of her current house arrest are made increasingly harsh.
The woman’s 3-year-old son, who she allegedly neglected and abused, was released from the hospital and is currently living in Ramat Beit Shemesh at the home of an uncle, the mother’s brother. Mother and son are prohibited from seeing one another. She is remanded to her Meah Shearim home.
