Chicago Rabbi Larry Dudovitz has been arrested on suspicion of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old boy in 2006
Dudovitz, 45, is being held on $100,000 bail. Dudovitz, who is also known by his Hebrew name Aryeh, is a follower of the late Chabad leader, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson and was formerly a rabbi at the Chabad House of Northwest Indiana. But a spokesperson for a Chabad rabbinic association in Illinois said that Dudovitz has had no official role in the movement since he arrived in Chicago. According to authorities, the alleged assault occurred at the victim’s home on October 26, 2006 in the West Rogers Park neighborhood.
