Brooklyn Jewish ‘Hooker’ Living in Israel

The Jewish woman whose half-baked prostitution claim sent four Brooklyn men to jail is living in Israel, where she is taking self-defense classes, the Daily News reported.

The paper published photos of the 22-year-old red-haired woman taking target practice with an Uzi assault weapon and said she is perfecting her martial arts skills.

The woman, who grew up in an Orthodox household in Crown Heights accused four black men of pimping her out and raping her starting when she was just 13.

The case unraveled and a top prosecutor stepped down when it was revealed that the woman later recanted the allegations but the men remained behind bars for months.

“What is she doing firing machine guns?” James Phillips, the lawyer for one of the accused men. “Is this the person you want with a loaded Uzi?”
