Steve Karro, Florida Rabbi Charged With Molesting 11 Year Old Girl, Out On Bail

It was just a cleansing, he said.



Steve Karro, a Miami rabbi who stands accused of molesting an eleven year old girl, has been arraigned on charges of child molestation and committing a lewd and lascivious act on a minor younger than 16. He was released on a $50, 000 bond and has been placed under house arrest.

Karro works as a substitute raggi at Shaare Ezra Sephardic Synagogue Congregation Miami and as an artist. The acts for which he was charged allegedly took place at his art gallery. These include fondling the girl’s buttocks and pulling her onto his lap and kissing her neck.

Karro has professed his innocence, telling the local CBS affiliate, “It was not touch, it was hug and the way I hug everybody, the way I hug all the kids, the way I caress them the way I give everybody love. It was the same like everybody else.”

He reportedly told the police that what he did was just a, “cleansing, as she was exhibiting negative energy, ” whatever that means.
