Middlesex County, NJ - Camp Counselor Charged With Sex Crime in New Jersey
Middlesex County, NJ - A camp counselor from New Jersey has been charged in connection with a 12-year-old alleged indecent assault crime.
Rabbi Aryeh Goodman, 30, Director of the Chabad House of East Brunswick in Middlesex County, New Jersey stands accused of inappropriate contact with a minor male camper in 2001 at Camp Menachem in Pike County, Pennsylvania.
Goodmanâ€™s alleged victim came forward to press charges last summer, but it apparently took some time for police to obtain a warrant to arrest the rabbi, according to reports in The Times-Tribune (http://bit.ly/UQ4Bm0) and the Pocono News (http://bit.ly/Vvo6Pg).
According to his biography on Chabadâ€™s website (http://bit.ly/ZdolPM), Goodman is a New Jersey native who studied at yeshivot in Brooklyn, Toronto and New Jersey before earning his rabbinic ordination in Sydney, Australia. Goodman is not listed as an official Rabbi on Chabad’s international website Chabad.org
Goodman is currently in the custody of the Middlesex County Sherriffâ€™s office and is awaiting extradition to Pike County.
