The former head of a Jerusalem yeshiva pleaded guilty to charges he sexually molested 19 students between 1991 and 1997. Prosecutors in the case of Rabbi Ze’ev Kapelovich, who lead the Netivei Meir Yeshiva, have asked that he be sent to jail for three-and-a-half years. The court is expected to announce its sentence next month.
