Now, if you're talking about committing fraud by hiding a for-profit's business transactions underneath an umbrella of a religiously exempt organization. then yes, fraud is still illegal even if coated with a religious name over top of it...

If on the other hand, you are talking about as but an example, the Jewish Cultural Center in West Bloomfield Township, which is in fact largely a religiously exempt entitiy, it does have tenants in place that are not-exempt. Just like your local school or university may contract out janitorial and/or food services to a private sector, for profit, non-exempt business like Chartwells
The business may not be profitable but as CEO you could draw quite the salary!
