A Teaneck, New Jersey rabbi is facing charges that he committed sex crimes against two 13-year-old Israeli boys who were visiting the rabbi through a scholarship fund, Fox News in New York reported.

Rabbi Uzi Rivlin housed the two boys separately in 2009 and 2010 while they visited the United States traveling during the summer and visiting an American camp.

The two children had reported the sexual abuse separately following their returns to Israel.

Bail was set for Rivlin at $175,000, and he was being detained at the Bergen County jail in lieu of bail, Fox News reported.

Police were investigating whether other children visiting from Israel who stayed with Rivilin may have been victim to similar sexual abuse, Fox News said.
