Rabbi Moti Elon denies indecent acts after indictment

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.
