A 51-year-old Jerusalem resident and Torah scholar was indicted for indecent acts with minors by the Jerusalem District Court on Tuesday.

"Yaakov" allegedly lured three boys, two of whom were brothers, into a storage room underneath his apartment building which he used as a study, after he had promised the boys they could use his computer to play games.

The abuse took place between 2007-2009, when the boys were between nine and 13 years old.
