A Brooklyn rabbi who is also a teacher at a girls' seminary was arrested Wednesday and is accused of distributing child pornography.

Samuel Waldman, 52, taught at a school in Borough Park.

Prosecutors say he enabled others to download multiple videos depicting children in sexual acts.

NY1 is told that both boys and girls appeared in the videos, and that some were as young as 4 years old.

Investigators say Waldman admitted to downloading child porn from a peer-to-peer network, which allows others to download materials from his computer.

He was released on bond following his arraignment.

The court is barring him from having unsupervised contact with children, and he also can't work with children.

His attorney declined comment.
