Rabbi Macy Gordon was accused of molesting boys he taught at Yeshiva University for nearly 28 years.
“Rabbi Macy Gordon went through the boy’s medicine cabinet and pulled out a bottle of Chloraseptic. He pulled back the boy’s bathrobe again and told him, “You have simanim [signs],” and sprayed Chloraseptic on the boy’s pubic hair. He then sodomized the boy with a toothbrush."
Rabbi Macy Gordon was the director of the National Council of Young Israel and the first director of Just One Life, which was originally run under the auspices of NCYI.

Student Claims of Abuse Not Reported by Yeshiva U.
For years, former students have asked Y.U., the premier educational institution of Modern Orthodox Judaism, to investigate their claims that a former principal had repeatedly abused students in the all-male high school that is part of the university. Another former high school student said Y.U. covered up for a staff member who sodomized him.
