Evidence Stage in Rabbi Elon Case Delayed

The Jerusalem Magistrates Court postponed, Monday, the evidence phase in the indecent-behavior trial of Rabbi Mordechai Elon, allowing his defense team to introduce four new testimonies.

Defense attorney Ya'akov Rubin told Arutz Sheva that there was nothing of substance in the indictment, saying Rabbi Elon's behavior with the complainants was as routine as it was for the hundreds of students he has taken to his heart as a father.
