Disgraced cult leader Eliezer Berland hospitalized with coronavirus

 Eliezer Berland, the disgraced leader of the Shuvu Banim community, has contracted coronavirus and has been hospitalized at Hadassah Ein Keren hospital in Jerusalem on oxygen support. Berland is 83 years old.

In June of this year, after a long-drawn-out legal process, Berland was convicted of serious offences and sentenced to 18 months in prison. He was later transferred to an undisclosed location, after his followers persisted in congregating outside the various places where he was being held and causing disturbances in the local community.

Berland was also fined the sum of NIS 2,415,000 ($743,250) and ordered to pay compensation to the victims of his crimes, which included fraud, attempted intimidation, tax offenses, and money laundering.
