Rabbi Pinto is the 'Most Persecuted in this Generation'


Controversial Rabbi Yoshiyahu Pinto made a return visit to his Ashdod yeshiva [Torah academy] on Thursday, speaking for the first time to his hundreds of students after fleeing to the US several months ago over a corruption scandal. He returned to Israel to give evidence to police. "They have thrust all the evil in the world upon us," he said. "We don't know if there is anyone in this generation who has been treated as poorly as we have."
