Top Rabbi at celebrity Kabbalah center ‘molested student then threatened to kill her’

Lawsuit: Yehuda Berg, co-director of the Kabbalah Center, has been accused of groping a woman

A Rabbi at the famed Los Angeles Kabbalah Center, attended by stars including Madonna and Ashton Kutcher, has been accused of sexually assaulting and threatening a woman.

Yehuda Berg, the co-director of the center, is being sued by Jena Scaccetti, who claimed that her former spiritual adviser had groped her in October 2012.

Ms Scaccetti alleged that when she rejected his advances, Berg became angry and said he would ‘f***ing kill’ her.

Berg, a father-of-five, allegedly attempted to assault Ms Scaccetti after inviting her to dinner at his mother’s apartment where he claimed he would be able to heal her kidney stones, TMZ reported.

When she arrived, Ms Scaccetti claimed she was given Vicodin and alcohol by Berg, who was complaining about his life and other teachers at the Kabbalah Center.

Berg allegedly started to ask inappropriate questions, asking Ms Scaccetti if she had a Brazillian wax or if she was shaved. He then started to hug her and touch her legs, she claims.

Ms Scaccetti is suing for $1.5 million as well as $40 million in punitive damages.

Berg and the Kabbalah Center have not yet responded to a Mail Online request for comment.

    Nothing a little Kol Nidre can’t handle, (ahead of time).

    Nothing new to see here. Move along, folks. Just more of the same only with celebrity status lurking on the outskirts.

    I had to check out the Daily Mail comment thread

    “Stephen, Los Angeles, United States, 3 days ago
    Of course he will say its all a lie and his community will rally around him”.


    Stephen is wide awake.

    How Dare That Shiksa In Rebuffing A Member Of “God’s Chosen People” Sexual Advance!
    I guess she did not want to experience things that Kosher! Maybe it is a good thing. In that it might get her away from Kabbalah and that Evil Center.
