Nissim Zioni, head of the nonprofit organization Pithon Lev, was sentenced to half-a-year of probation on Thursday for sexually harassing four women who volunteered for the group. The Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court also instructed Zioni to pay each of the victims NIS 6,000. Zioni told the court that he was sorry "from the bottom of his heart," and that he understood his mistakes. He said he had acted out of naivete. "I feel it's a pity that I was unaware of these things beforehand. I am, by nature, a warm and loving man." Zioni began Pithon Lev, which provides food, dental care, and clothing to the poor and elderly.
