Rabbi David Lau, the recently elected chief Ashkenazi rabbi of Israel, has been accused of cheating on an ordination exam.
Israel’s Channel 2 reported Sunday that Lau in 1993 brought papers with the questions and answers to previous exams into one of his ordination tests. Reference material is not permitted in ordination exams.
The papers did not have Lau’s name on them.
Lau was disqualified from the exam. He took and passed the test in 1994, the year he received his ordination.
Reporter Amit Siegal said Channel 2 had received information accusing Lau of cheating on the exam on the eve of the election late last month. However, the news channel refrained from reporting on the information as it attempted to verify the accusation, the Times of Israel reported.
Channel 2 received a signed affidavit documenting the incident from Rabbi Uzi Levi, the test’s proctor and a senior official in the Chief Rabbinate’s ordination department
Last week, Lau came under fire for using a racist slur in describing Israeli and foreign basketball players. He was elected to serve as Israel’s Ashkenazi chief rabbi for the next 10 years.
