Rabbis Arrested On Charges Of Money-Laundering

If the feds audited yeshivas, I suspect they would find more cases of illegality than innocence.


FBI and IRS rounded up scores of elected officials and several rabbis across the state in what is being described as one of the biggest investigations of its kind in Jersey’s scandal-plagued history.   

It appears to be a corruption-related investigation but Justice Department and FBI spokesmen would only say the corruption involved a "high-volume international money-laundering conspiracy."  It is said to involve rabbis in the Syrian Jewish enclave in Brooklyn and Deal, New Jersey.  The probe is said to have started when money transfers drew the interests of the feds who followed the trail back to small-town Jersey corruption.
