The charge in Mamaroneck, for pulling a woman for driving too slowly, while he was impersonating as a cop, was reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor this week, with the judge ordering a psychiatric evaluation and adjourning the case until September. After this case was reported, other people reported similar incidents in White Plains and Yonkers.
On Friday, A 30-year-old Mount Vernon woman became the fourth to come forward, telling The Journal News Rabbi Borodowski pulled a fake police routine on her too, chasing her on the Sprain Brook Parkway before banging on her window at a traffic light.
The Jewish Week says that during one recent service, a congregant said, “We DO NOT discard broken tablets or anything that is not whole, not perfect. And, we do not discard people who have erred in some way.”
