Maryland Rabbi Accused of Sex Abuse Sues Parents of Accusers

Posted: Feb 01, 2018 9:23 AM Updated:

PIKESVILLE, Md. (AP)- A rabbi who was accused of sexual abuse and fired from a private Jewish school in a Baltimore suburb is suing the parents of his accusers and an activist in New York.

The Baltimore Sun reports that Rabbi Steven Krawatsky, who also goes by the first name Shmuel, filed the lawsuit Tuesday in a Maryland federal court. The suit says Krawatsky was accused of abusing two boys at a Frederick County camp where he worked as counselor.

Krawatsky denies the accusations. Authorities investigated and prosecutors did not bring charges.

The lawsuit's claims include defamation and invasion of privacy. It also names sexual abuse advocate Chaim Levin as a defendant and says he called Krawatsky "extremely dangerous" in a Facebook post.

Beth Tfiloh school in Pikesville fired Krawatsky amid the allegations.
