Jerusalem District prosecutors on Thursday said that following an investigation, it has decided to bring Rabbi Moti Alon to trial for sex crimes against two of his underage students during the years 2003 and 2005.

Before filing charges, Rabbi Alon will be given an opportunity to argue why he should not be charged.

The decision was approved by the attorney-general upon recommendation of the state prosecutor.
