The rabbi from northern Israel who was arrested last week on charges of rape and sexual misdemeanours spoke to the media for the first time on Wednesday, saying that he will “meet these women in court and they will look me in the eye and we will examine every matter thoroughly. It’s all nonsense.”

His name is still under a gag order owing to an appeal to the Supreme Court against publicizing it.

The Kiryat Shmona Magistrate’s Court extended the rabbi’s detention by eight days.

So far eight women have submitted complaints against the rabbi.
