Two sisters of a woman who claims her rabbi father molested her as a girl testified in Brooklyn federal court yesterday - and said their mother was the abuser.

"We grew up in a house [where] the mother was abusing the kids every day," Chayeh Weingarten, 23, testified.

Asked whether her dad was an abuser, Chaneh Weingarten, 20, said, "Never!"

Rabbi Israel Weingarten, 59, is accused of sexually abusing his oldest daughter, now 27, from ages 9 to 16.
