Getting more ppl to say Tehillim
November 24, 2009 5:23 pm

I think we need a more noticeable place to post this…it’s not likely that enough people to cover 30 days’ worth of Tehillim will be reading the comments on the second page of COLlive. We either have to move it to the front page (by commenting on a more recent article) or post our list on some other website that more people see ( meaning like a blog, forum, facebook group, that kind of thing.)
Or, we could just all ask people who we know to take on a day.

to 33 &34
November 24, 2009 12:03 pm

it is the day of the month
add on

To #33
November 24, 2009 11:23 am

This is #13/27/32 again…(my initials are SS so I’ll go by that from now on.)
No I also thought day of the month…which would be a lot easier…I can’t guarantee that I’ll have time to say the whole yom chamishi (of the week) every day.

I thought day of the month
November 24, 2009 4:18 am

but we can switch to day of the week

To #30 (this is #13/#27)
November 23, 2009 2:06 pm

We’ll be covered if we’re doing it by day of the WEEK, but are we? Or are we doing it by day of the month, which is how I originally understood it? (In which case we need more people).

and beautiful daughters, and grandchildren!!!

November 22, 2009 4:46 pm

a beis din would have had a different opinion than to put a father of so many beautiful souls in jail. to what purpose? if one wants restitution, although I know not why, jail never assists. our justice system as such never will approach that of Hashem

Chalukas Hatehillim
November 22, 2009 3:35 pm

So here’s how we have it so far:
#9- Yom Alef
#10- Yom Bais
#11-Yom Gimmel
#12- Yom Daled
#13 (thats me) Yom Hey
#16- Yom Vov

Anyone Else?

November 22, 2009 8:37 am

Maybe COLLIVE can arrange the splittign of Tehillim. That way everyone sees what they are part of. You guys are best at arranging that. We can even divide up by Kapitel, eaiser to remember and more ppl involved. With this we should only hear a Yeshua Bekorov.

could people write what theyll say well hava a ful sefer tehillim
November 22, 2009 8:19 am

To Done ( # 15 ) What do we say that ‘ even if the guillitine is falling Hashem can save.’ Nothing is done until it’s really done and it aint done yet.Lets pray, say Tehillim, give tzedokah etc and think good and it will be good

I can say yom gimmel every day this week
November 22, 2009 5:09 am
November 22, 2009 4:21 am

This is why the 72 charges were dropped, so there would be no upcoming trial, so no need for him to be released on bail, giving him no chance to leave the country.He will stay in jail now until sentencing and then be taken immediatly to a Federal Prison. The testimony of the “Supervisor” from Israel along with the paper trail connecting the two finished any chance of bail.

i know this doesnt help, but..
November 22, 2009 3:53 am

this is what i think
the reason the govt dropped the immmigration charges last week was to give judge reade an excuse for denying bail.

it doesnt matter either way. hashem should pay back e/o from sm rubashkin to the judges to the prison guards for their actions. Rubashkin for the good and all the rest visa versa or as they deserve.

keep davening!
Simcha poiretz geder!

November 21, 2009 5:10 pm

he created a false invoice that the bank knew about. in other words, he said he had less $$ than he had but the bank knew abt it and didnt mind cuz they were getting more $$ for interest. so thats called bank fraud…when people hear that they automatically assume he stole money from the bank which leads to all the ridiculous charges

November 21, 2009 4:43 pm

People! What did Rubashkin do????? Does anyone even know????? Noone is reprsenting this case correctly- maybe if we knew whats going on we could help him get out, not just send Judge Reade the same letter 4 billion times by 5 billion people!

hashem please
November 21, 2009 4:41 pm

hashem please have mercy on your child SHOLOM MORDECHAI haleivi BEN RIVKAH and release him from all the agony, pleaaase, l’ maylah m’derec hateva, he”s been thru hell already, we all know the truth, he didnt kill anybody, and didnt do anything close to it, he made mistakes in running his busness! making mistakes in running a business does not make him americas bigest criminal, c’mon just common sence from the begining of this case they are constantly trying to demonize him and portray him as the top criminal of the century, everyone in their right mind knows how far… Read more »

November 21, 2009 3:22 pm

hashem yerachem. increase in torah, tefilla , tzedaka. what is Hashem doing?

There are other ways...
November 21, 2009 3:11 pm

Why don’t they just put him on house arrest in the meantime, have him wear one of those ankle bracelets that act as a lo jack and his whereabouts are monitored…keeping him like this is not the only solution to keeping him from fleeing

November 21, 2009 2:58 pm

i love him sooooooo much

What does she want to prove?
November 21, 2009 2:51 pm

Does she want to prove to HERSELF that she has power?

It's not fair.....Linda Reade is using Rubashkin for judicial experience
November 21, 2009 2:42 pm

On her website: HER ONLY NOTABLE CASE Thus far is:

A) Illegal worker raid case

Judge Reade is presiding in the case of Sholom Rubashkin, a top manager of Agriprocessors, Inc based in Pottsville, Iowa. Rubashkin is facing charges of immigration, bank, and wire fraud after a May 2008 raid was conducted by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Despite his trial is set for October 13, 2009, the judge ruled that Rubashkin can leave Iowa to pray at the grave site of Jewish Orthodox leader in New York despite he is on supervised release
