Rabbi Moti Elon

Rabbi Moti Elon was convicted of sexual misconduct towards a student and received a sentence of 6 months community order, 3 years probation and a requirement he pay the victim NIS 10 000.  Following in the steps of the Catholic Church hierarchy in providing unconditional support to convicted offenders, a prominent religious Zionist Rabbi Chaim Druckman invited Rabbi Elon to deliver weekly Torah lessons at a yeshiva. 
It is interesting that powerful men do not understand that providing support and comfort to other powerful men who have been found guilty of sexual assault damages victims. Victims deserve better than to be treated as irrelevant and unimportant compared to the men who have attacked them.
