New Jersey Rabbi Now Behind Bars for Child Sexual Abuse

Rabbi Aryeh Goodman, former director of Chai Central Hebrew School in East Brunswick, New Jeresey, was sent to serve his sentence for indecent assault today at the Pike County Correctional Facility in Lords Valley, Pennsylvania.

Goodman, 33, was convicted in October 2015 on two counts of indecent assault of a child under the age of 13 while he was a counselor at Camp Menachem in Lackawaxen Township, P.A. in 2001. The criminal division of the Pike County Court of Common Pleas sentenced Goodman to eleven to twenty-three months in jail for the two first degree misdemeanors.

As part of his sentence, Goodman is required to complete a course of sex offender counseling and must refrain from having any contact with the victim or the victim’s family. Goodman is classified as a Tier 3 Sex Offender, which requires lifetime sex offender registration. As a condition of his eventual parole, Goodman will be restricted from working at or frequenting places where children under the age of eighteen are known to congregate and must register in person as a sex offender every three months for the rest of his life.
