A New York rabbi was charged with stealing federal grant money intended for a school for disabled children. Prosecutors say Milton Balkany diverted $700,000 in grant money to build the school, instead using it for personal gain and for companies in New York and Israel that are connected to his family. Balkany, who is free on bail, runs a Brooklyn school called Bais Yaakov.
