BALTIMORE — More women are coming forward alleging inappropriate sexual behavior by a prominent Baltimore rabbi.

Eighty-five-year-old Rabbi Jacob A. Max was sentenced to a suspended one-year prison term after he was convicted in April of sexually molesting a woman half his age in a Reisterstown, Md., funeral home.

The Baltimore Sun reported Sunday that five more women are alleging inappropriate behavior. The five say the rabbi touched them in a sexual manner or made suggestive comments, and sometimes did both.

Rabbi Max’s lawyer, David B. Irwin, says his client is innocent.

The Sun reported three of the women contacted the newspaper and two were referred by others. The newspaper says the women believe their accusations need to be disclosed.
