Rabbinical Court Finds Bristol Man Guilty

Download PDF for this date

A Rabbinical Court, believed to be the first convened in this state with Superior Court approval, has found Noah Seymon, Bristol businessman, guilty of “assault under provocation” on Rabbi Morris Ungar, formerly of the Beth Israel Synagogue in Bristol, but dismissed a charge and counter-charge of slander.

The court comprised Rabbis Abraham J. Feldman and Isaac S. Hurwitz of Hartford and Rabbi William Greenfeld of Waterbury, who were appointed by Superior Court Judge P. B. O’Sullivan. The three rabbis will embody their oral decision in a written opinion to be submitted for approval of the court.
