I have a google apps(for business) domain where users have been asked not to communicate with a specific individual who has a separate email address and domain.  I do not want my users to be able to email this person or receive emails from this person.

 How can I block both sending and receiving to a specific address or domain, without blocking them from communicating with anyone else on the internet?

You can't block.
You can audit and notify everybody that you do so.

In you admin settings, you can setup outbound filters in Google Apps for Business/Government/Education.

The feature is "Restrict Delivery".

I looked at restricting delivery and it only allows me to stop emails out to everyone and specify only a list of addresses that users can email.  I want to specify a small list of addresses users cannot email and allow them to email everyone else.

You should be able to configure it as "everybody except ..."

It was actually under Google Apps-> Gmail->Advanced Setting -> sender routing, and receiving routing.

The solutions was very close, but not quite the correct.  Either way, it pointed me in the right direction.
