Jerusalem rabbi accused of molesting students

By Shlomi Diaz for Israel Hayom

A Jerusalem rabbi was arrested Thursday for allegedly molesting several of his students for a number of years. The rabbi denies the allegations against him.

Rabbi Moshe Avraham Steinharter, 43, was arrested by Modiin Police following a complaint by a former student, now 19, who claimed he was molested by the rabbi since he was 14 years old.

The youth claimed that Steinharter had sexually assaulted and sodomized him on several occasions. He further claimed he was not the only student abused by the rabbi.

Steinharter denied the allegations against him, saying that other than the “occasional hug” he had no physical contact with his accuser, or any of his other students.

Police are investigating the allegations. The rabbi was arraigned before the Rishon Lezion Magistrates’ Court on Thursday afternoon, and remanded for one week.
