Religious-Zionist rabbi's life threatened for revealing sexual harassment case
Kobi Nahshoni • Ynet
Rabbi Aharon Lichtenstein, who is among the religious-Zionist Takana forum members who revealed sexual harassment claims against Rabbi Mordechai Elon, claims his life has been threatened.
"I received a letter full of threats from a relative of Rabbi Elon, who said he would hurt me in any way possible," he told his students at Har Etzion yeshiva while at times bursting into tears. "This is the reward we have received for long hours of meetings held by important people."
Arutz Sheva is reporting the threats were legal threats, not death threats, and quotes Rabbi Lichtenstein as saying:
"I want to clarify that the threat in question was not a threat of physical violence but a legal threat."
