Child Molestation Accuser Takes Stand Against Orthodox Rabbi In Rockland Courthouse

Laiby Stern took the stand Thursday afternoon at the Rockland Courthouse to testify against the respected Rabbi Moshe Taubenfeld who is facing sexual abuse charges that were alleged to have taken place over five years from 2001. Taubenfeld plead non guilty to the charges in 2014, rejecting a plea deal from the prosecution at the time. The issue of child molestation coverups within the orthodox community has been on the minds of concerned parents but may now, finally be addressed. Stern detailed his account of the times he went to see Taubenfeld as a mentor after 9/11/01. Testimony will likely continue this afternoon.
