Police have recommended that no criminal charges should be brought against one of Israel's leading rabbis, Motti Elon, for homosexual encounters with young men who sought spiritual guidance.
According to the police, all the cases they investigated involved consensual acts with men over 18.
The Attorney General, Yehuda Weinstein, is expected to accept the police recommendation.
The investigation was launched into Rabbi Elon last month after a forum of senior rabbis and educators, Takana, announced that he had been accused of sexual impropriety.
