Prosecutors are investigating Rabbi Yitzchok Fischer in connection to an infant's herpes-related death—and it turns out that Fischer has continued performing circumcisions despite a court order to stop.
"I think the practice would continue, but there could be significant difficulty in gathering evidence. I would hope that our government officials take steps in conjunction with the community," Rabbi David Zwiebel said.
The Brooklyn DA is now "looking into" the baby boy who died last September after he contracted herpes during his circumcision.
The cause of death for the two-week old was listed as “disseminated herpes simplex virus Type 1, complicating ritual circumcision with oral suction.”
