Prominent national-religious figure Rabbi Mordechai Elon has been convicted on two counts of indecent assault by force against a minor at the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court

Elon could potentially serve up to seven years in prison for his crime. Elon had been one of the predominant figures in the national religious world before allegations of misconduct arose and was dean of the renowned HaKotel Yeshiva. His Torah lessons were broadcast on national radio, he had a television slot and enjoyed a large and devoted public following in Israel.
