Two weeks after Rabbi Eliezer Berland's house arrest expired, hasidic singer Mordechai Ben David visited Rabbi Berland's study hall.

Upon his release, Rabbi Berland took part in a Simchat Beit Hashoeva celebration honoring the anniversary of Rabbi Nachman of Breslov's passing.

Rabbi Eliezer Berland, 80, is the founder of the Shuvu Banim Yeshiva in the Old City of Jerusalem and was once a leading figure in the Breslov community. He was accused in 2013 of molesting two female followers and was sentenced last November to 18 months in prison.

However, five months into his sentence he was released to a hospice to receive regular treatment for serious health problems he has suffered in recent years.

Last month, some of the women filed a civil suit for four million shekels ($1.14 million) and requested Rabbi Berland not be allowed to leave Israel.
