Rabbi Accused of Sexual Assault Seen in Court

Rabbi Moshe Taubenfeld, who was accused of sexually assaulting a nine-year old boy over five-years beginning in 2001, was seen in court on Monday. Taubenfeld was accused by the boy this past year, who stated that the rabbi was counseling him when the assaults occurred. Taubenfeld originally denied the claims and according to his lawyer Gerard Damiani the statute of limitations has expired anyway. A police officer who investigated with the District Attorney’s Office and another with the Ramapo Department testified against the man, as well as the father of the boy. Another hearing will take place on January 28.
