Is Rabbi Ben Zion Sobel Another Alumni Of Ner Israel?

Does anyone have more information about Rabbi Ben Zion Sobel?

I've been told that:
Ben Zion Sobel originally started molesting boys in Ner Yisrael many years ago, but it was covered up as long as he left for Israel, where he founded a yeshiva whose goal seemed to be to allow him to molest boys unwatched (it was set up in a remote kibbutz outside of Netanya, with only “troubled” boys enrolled).
I've also been told that he was never at Ner Israel. Someone else told me he started off at Ner Israel and then moved on to
RJJ (Rabbi Jacob Joseph School). I need help looking into the facts on this case. If you have information please e-mail it immediately.

From: Protocols
Here's another shady rabbi from Ner Israel in Baltimore -- Ben Zion Sobel. He ran a yeshiva Neve Zion in Israel. He quietly and quickly left in 1987 after a scandal between him and some of his male students. I've heard of at least one suicide following this and other yeshiva bochers giving up on Judaism.

There's a link between Sobel and Matis Weinberg that goes back 30 years.

Sobel is charismatic and strong-willed. He's convinced people over the years that he's a big Torah scholar and beyond reproach.

I believe that Sobel is working in book editing. One of the big book publishers hired him.

He's tried to get out of the book business and to get back into teaching boys. He says he's rehabilitated.

Rabbi Matis Weinberg has withstood allegations of sexual misconduct. He displays unbelievable arrogance. He's convinced he's beyond reproach. He's smart and twisted.

Sobel never learned in NIRC. He is from RJJ. Get your facts straight

This site's despicable campaign against NIRC must stop. And right before Tisha B'Av. Shame, shame.

Maybe the blog owner is doing a mitzvah by making public what was mishandled years ago?

I personally think the timing is perfect. Can you imagine what all of the survivors of individuals who were connected to Ner Israel have gone through over the years?

Look at the hell Ner Israel put them through in order to protect "their reputation".

He graduated RJJ High School in 1965. That’s all I know about him.
