Of some 700 child sexual abuse cases brought in an average year, few involved members of the ultra-observant Orthodox Jewish community  But in the past year, there have been 26. District Attorney Charles J. Hynes has brought charges against a variety of men — yeshiva teachers, rabbis, camp counselors, merchants and relatives of children. Eight have been convicted; 18 await trial.
