Israel Police are investigating new sexual harassment allegations against prominent Zionist Orthodox Rabbi Mordechai "Moti" Elon, Ha’aretz reported today based on a Israel Channel 1 news report aired last night.
Elon allegedly has a long history of sexually harassing male teenage students and in 2013 he was convicted of sexually assaulting one teen student, but was only sentenced to six months of community service after top Zionist Orthodox rabbis like Haim Druckman – who has a history of protecting rabbinic sex abusers – rallied around him.
Druckman, Zionist Orthodoxy’s top rabbi, publicly attacked the two victims in Elon’s 2013 case and Elon’s powerful supporters harassed and threatened them. Israel’s often lax police and courts did nothing to protect the victims. One victim dropped out of the case as a result.
In the new allegations, one of Elon's former students reportedly wrote on Facebook about two incidents in which he claimed to have been sexually harassed by Elon. The student noted in his Facebook post that he made the decision to go public with Elon’s attempted abuse after attending a conference last Thursday. Elon was also at the conference and was warmly greeted by Druckman there.
"Due to Rabbi Druckman's shocking support of convicted sex offender Rabbi Moti Elon, I decided to share something that I never thought I would share – Rabbi Elon sexually harassed me on two separate occasions,” the former student wrote.
Police are reportedly attempting to find the former student. Ha’aretz was able to contact him, but he declined to speak further about the incidents with Elon at this time.
