ALBANY - A rabbi accused of molesting two teenage boys faced a judge Tuesday.

Police say Rabbi Yaakow Weiss sexually assaulted the boys last summer.

Weiss, the founder of Chabad of Colonie, allegedly forced the teens into non-consensual sexual contact on several occasions last year.

Weiss was arraigned in an Albany County courtroom. He has previously denied the claims, calling them fabrications brought on by anti-Semitic beliefs.
