A New Jersey rabbi is accused of inappropriately touching a boy at a youth camp in Pennsylvania in 2001.

Rabbi Aryeh Goodman of East Brunswick is charged with 12 counts of indecent assault.

Pennsylvania State Police tell The Home News Tribune of East Brunswick the 30-year-old is awaiting extradition from the Middlesex County Jail.

Authorities say the male, who was 12 years old at the time, claimed in May that Goodman assaulted him while attending Camp Menachem in Lackawaxen Township, Pa, in 2001. Goodman was a counselor at the camp.

It's not known if Goodman has hired at attorney.
