NEW YORK — The head of a Jewish legal aid charity for low-income New Yorkers has stepped down amid a federal investigation into his alleged “accounting irregularities.”

Yisroel Schulman, 51, has resigned as president and attorney-in-charge of NYLAG, the New York Law Journal reported on Feb. 6. Sources told the Law Journal that the case involves Schulman’s “handling of finances” but that “NYLAG's financial stability was not at risk.”
