Counting His Blessings!

Jeff* emails: Hi Luke,
Have a look at the following article. It discusses the escapades of Rabbi Uzi Rivlin, an orthodox Rabbi who actually taught religious school at Temple Beth Abraham in Tarrytown, NY, where I went to Sunday school some 15 years ago. I’m counting my blessings that Livkin didn’t go Jerry Sandusky on my ass when I went to Hebrew School!

REPORT: The rabbi of Temple Beth Abraham said he was “shocked” at the arrest on child-molestation charges of a fifth-grade teacher at the synagogue’s religious school.

Rabbi Uzi Rivlin, 63, is accused of sexually abusing two 13-year-old Israeli boys who were staying at his New Jersey home in 2009 and 2010 as part of an exchange program he helped start.

“I’m completely shocked,” Rabbi David Holtz said of the allegations. “These charges are inconsistent with anything we have ever heard or known about Rabbi Rivlin. They’re competely out of character.”
