Jewish media such as the Jerusalem Post and Jewish Telegraphic Agency are reporting that San Diego's Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center canceled a performance by singer Eyal Golan because of member protests about Golan's alleged sexual involvement with underage girls. The show was to have been yesterday (January 19).
The Times of Israel reported in November that Golan, also a reality-TV judge, was interrogated by police. Golan and another singer were accused of sex with minors. Investigators searched the home of the father of one of the singers.
The Jerusalem Post said that one of the organizers of the concert is threatening to sue the Lawrence center.
"Bringing Eyal Golan over to San Diego is no small matter," Yigal Amsalem told the Post. "How could they have cancelled a concert one week in advance and for no good reason? They will pay for this in legal costs in a lawsuit by Eyal Golan and by us."
Dan Shapiro, marketing director of Lawrence Family JCC had no comment.
