November 3, 2011 18:33

Rabbi Moti Elon on Thursday responded for the first time to an indictment filed against him on Wednesday, denying charges that he exploited his position as a revered figure in carrying out indecent offenses against two minors.

"I never, heaven forfend, carried out any acts, with sexual intent toward any of my students," Elon stated at a press conference.

"Any foolish attempt to claim that I confessed to such an act is a loathsome and coarse lie," he added.
