Hayut grew up in the predominantly ultra-Orthodox city of Bnei Brak in central Israel and as a child studied in a Talmud Torah elementary school near his home. His father, Yohanan Hayut, is the chief rabbi of El Al.

Just for a bit of background, this guy's father is the "Rabbi" of Elal.

Can we merge this with the "Don't swipe recklessly" thread?

There's nothing glorifying about this guy other than he's a crook and a chilul hashem. Catch me if you can was creative and he at least mostly ripped off corporations lol

I was in JFK T8 and this guy approached me asking me if I speak Hebrew. After I said yes he said he lives in Boston, needs to take the Amtrak from Penn Station to Boston and that he left his cc on the plane, couldnít get it and cancelled it. He needs $80 and heíll give me his number and pay me back. I feel a little guilty but was kinda not sure how legit he was. I didnít have money either way but took a pic of him just in case... anyone have a similar experience?

Was approached by a similar personality in Atlantic subway station several years ago. Scam.
