This week the 6th grade English class at Lubavitcher Yeshiva in Crown Heights spoke about the fact that fellow Lubavitcher Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin is in jail.
The students heard the story of Rubashkin’s ordeal, beginning from when his family opened the Agriprocessors meat plant, until the recent court case and conviction.
A lesson was then given on writing letters and each of the students wrote a personal letter to Sholom Mordechai.
The letters were edited in class and at home with the help of their parents.
When completed, the letters will be sent out to the Iowa Correctional Center, where Rubashkin is currently incarcerated.
The teacher of the class, Yosef Shidler said, “I hope that other classes around the world will follow this idea; it would be amazing if Shalom Mordechai received hundreds of letters from Jewish children worldwide.”
Anyone who wants to send a letter to Rubashkin can do so at:
Linn County Correctional Center

Cedar Rapids, IA 52406-0608
(Letters must include a return address or they will not be delivered)
