A man charged with harassment in relation to police investigations into a Temple Fortune rabbi will stand trial in July.
Samuel Erlanger, 37, will appear at Willesden Magistrates’ Court for trial on July 11 as part of ongoing investigations into orthodox rabbi Chaim Halpern, 54, leader of Divrei Chaim Synagogue in Bridge Lane, Temple Fortune.
Mr Erlanger, of Powis Gardens, Golders Green, denied one charge of harassment without violence at Hendon Magistrates Court on Thursday.
He was arrested in January on suspicion of harassment via telephone following incidents alleged to have taken place between December 25 last year and January 23 this year.
Another man, Shlomo Feldman, 28, of Lynmouth Road, Stamford Hill, faces three charges of harassment without violence in relation to the investigation into Rabbi Halpern and will appear at Hendon Magistrates Court on May 15.
