Washing Their Dirty Prayer Shawls in Private

Religious Zionism should have cast out Moti Elon long ago. He could have been judged without a trial. But they don’t air their dirty prayer shawls in public.

What if Mordechai “Moti” Elon had been acquitted, rather than having been convicted of forcible sexual assault? Would he still have the privilege of being called “rabbi?” Would it still be appropriate to consider him among “the most important Zionist rabbis?” Or would he be thought of as having a serious mental disorder?
