Around the same time that the rocket barrage from Gaza intensified, the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization service dumped a toxic pervert on Beit Shemesh.
On July 7, 2014, Yosef Gad (aka Gad Yosef) Ederi, a 43-year-old Israeli national, was deported to Israel after completing a prison sentence for raping an 8-year-old boy in a mikvah. He is listed on the New York State Sex Offender Registry.
In 2005, Ederi was also convicted in Israel for rape. The court ruling text can be seen on the Ad-Kan site.
Ederi comes from Beit Shemesh and his extended family still lives there. Be alert and warn others. He is a dangerous, recidivist child rapist.
There are unconfirmed reports that he is under investigation for other crimes, both sexual and financial. If you sight him please notify the authorities.
I advise circulating this notice with the pictures to help your community keep your children safe. Please take vigorous action to ensure he does not get access to children. Please make sure your local mikvaot are aware of his history and make sure he is not alone with children.
Ederi is a Moroccan Sephardi. But he is versatile and also spends time in Ashkenazi Haredi circles. Be prepared for yet another makeover as he tries to reintegrate himself and shed his past. As you can see by comparing the two pictures he is a versatile chameleon.
