A veteran yeshiva teacher was removed from his position as prosecutors continue to investigate accusations that he sexually assaulted a little girl for over a year, the Daily News has learned.

Stanley Kleinman was arrested in December for molesting a then 11-year-old’s breast and vagina with his hands and inserted his finger inside her body on more than two occasions, according to the criminal complaint.

Kleinman, 62, is a fifth grade Jewish studies teacher at Yeshiva Darchei Torah in Far Rockaway and is better known as Rabbi Yisroel Kleinman.

“He’s an excellent teacher,” said Yakov Bender, dean of Darchei Torah, where Kleinman is employed for 30 years.
