On the way to P-TECH, a large number of Hasidic Jews held signs and chanted at Obama calling on him to review Rubashkin case

Rubashkin case
October 27, 2013 4:24 am

I’ve been told by many non-Lubavitchers that they are not even AWARE of the Rubashkin case!
It is time to put this matter on a higher profile and have it on the front pages of the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Los Angeles Times etc-throughout the entire country, as well as on ALL T.V. news stations throughout the country!
Daily unified protests at the White House
Nationwide letter writing campaigns nation wide to all Congressmen
Not enough action has really been taken to make this something of true interest and concerrn

go suri!!!!!

lets put 1 day for all to go in front of justice department or the white house and go on strike for rubashkin we want justice now. this is America, not Iran, or Iraq or even SYRIA OR AFRICA where is justice???
jewish community has to arrange to put a bus from here to washington DC and bring Media then we will see that as jews we are all 1 family. whole nation will hear our voice. lets do it.

I think this may have been the first time an event of this nature was held to bring the Rubashkin case to the attention of the higher ups.

Perhaps it can be done again?

Reported by WH reporter
October 25, 2013 6:31 pm

It was mentioned on other news sites that WH Pool Reporter Zeke Miller reported on the Rubashkin angle!

The Rubashkin cause
October 25, 2013 4:35 pm

As much as we hope that the few signs and maybe a few chants in his directions, in reality i think president Obama barely looked outside and i doubt he saw any of the signs (long live the king as well), and even if he did see this display of protest chances are he didn’t even understand what is the issue at hand
I hate to be the party popper here but as much as we want to believe that the Jewish voice is heard here…. it wasn’t

October 25, 2013 4:01 pm

there was no doubt that the signs calling for reversing the injustice done to a former kosher meatplant manager has caught Obama’s attention. doubtful, he was probably on hi scell phone or on his laptop trying to sign up for abamacare

Finally!!!
October 25, 2013 3:21 pm

IMHO, that was the funniest (and almost true!!) comment that I’ve EVER seen on this website. Finally met someone with good taste on this website. OK, back to shabbos preparations.

We should respect...
October 25, 2013 3:19 pm

President Obama because ‘Torah’ mandates this and many believe he is doing good things.
However, he is a soured president.
When he was electioneering in Iowa (Postville?) right before or after the Agriprocessors raid he said: “Employers should treat their employees better.”
Attorney Nathan Lewin publicly expressed his pain that a Harvard graduate would declare guilt before a trial.
Anything for votes.

A Torah scholar or an amazing shliach come to CH…this should be considered more important?
