Religious-Zionist rabbi's life threatened for revealing sexual harassment case

Rabbi Aharon Lichtenstein, who is among the religious-Zionist Takana forum members who revealed sexual harassment claims against Rabbi Mordechai Elon, claims his life has been threatened.

 

"I received a letter full of threats from a relative of Rabbi Elon, who said he would hurt me in any way possible," he told his students at Har Etzion yeshiva while at times bursting into tears. "This is the reward we have received for long hours of meetings held by important people." (Kobi Nahshoni)
