Rabbi Gary Lieberman sexually abused a 10-year-old student at Hebrew Academy of Nassau County when he was a teacher there, police said Friday.
The abuse allegedly took place at the yeshiva's lower school campus in West Hempstead between between November, 2009 and May 2010. The rabbi, who lives in Far Rockaway, was fires from the yeshiva for unspecified reasons in the summer of 2010.
