Two charged in sex abuse probe in to Orthodox Jewish Divrei Chaim Synagogue in Golders Green 

Police investigating allegations of sex abuse in the Orthodox Jewish community in Golders Green have charged two men with harassment offences.

Samuel Erlanger, 38, of Powis Gardens, Golders Green, and Shlomo Feldman, 29, of Lynmouth Road, South Tottenham, will appear in court next month to face the charges.

The arrests were made as part of an investigation into a marriage counselling service run at the Divrei Chaim Synagogue in Golders Green.

In February, police arrested Rabbi Chaim Halpern and three others in connection with the investigation.

All four are due to answer bail later this month.

Today's charges were brought as part of the same investigation, but no action has yet been taken on the other four men.

Mr Erlanger was charged with one count of harassment without violence and will appear at Hendon Magistrate's Court on May 2.

Mr Feldman was charged with three counts of harassment without violence and will appear at the same court on May 15
