On March 21, 2013 Sholom Eichler was arrested in Israel on charges of molesting his younger cousin over a three year period starting in 1996. The abuse began when the child victim was only 6-years of age. According to Queerty, an online newpaper, Chaim Levin stated he was abused in both Sholom Eichler’s home and also at a local synagogue.
Back in 2012, Eichler ignored a civil suit in which the alleged survivor was awarded a default judgement. It was at that time Sholom Eichler fled the united states and took up residency in Kfar Chabad, Israel.
Eichler’s family is well known internationally in the orthodox Jewish world for the family owned Judaica Gift and book store Eichler's, which is located in Flatbush (Brooklyn), NY. Sholom Eichler works for the family business as the Website Manager and Programmer.
Eichler attended Yeshiva High School in Pittsburg, PA and Touro College in Jerusalem, Israel. In 2002, Sholom Eichler worked as the office manager at Camp Gan Israel in Montreal, Quebec.
