A rabbi who lives in a settlement in the West Bank was arrested on suspicion of distributing nude video clips of an Israeli singer and model.

Over the past week, videos of singer Eden Ben Zaken and model Neta Alchimister trying on bathing suits in Alchimister’s swimwear store in Tel Aviv were leaked online.

The man is suspected of violating the privacy of the two women by distributing the video clips, but the police are not sure whether he is the person who hacked into the security cameras in the store and downloaded the videos. The punishment for the crime that he is now suspected of is up to five years in prison.

The 41-year-old man teaches at a seminary for girls. His detention was extended by the court on Wednesday for five more days.

The man, a father of six, also works in computers. Neighbors of his said he is a “saint, modest, the last person you could imagine would be involved in such an incident.”
