Federal prosecutors say 30-year-old David Goldhirsh of Brooklyn pleaded guilty Tuesday to owning and operating an illegal money transmitting business. He was indicted with 60-year-old Rabbi Lavel Schwartz of Brooklyn, who pleaded guilty May 24 to money laundering conspiracy.

Prosecutors say Schwartz admitted that he and his brother, Rabbi Mordchai Fish, helped an undercover government informant launder what they thought were illicit funds through various charitable organizations, or “gemachs,” including one operated by Goldhirsh.

Fish previously pleaded guilty to conspiring to commit money laundering.

The three men were among more than 40 people arrested in July 2009 in New Jersey’s largest ever corruption case.
