Our Holy Rebbeim are looking after their children and just like “Hayomim Nizkarim Venasim”. The Rebbeim will surely take Sholom Mordachi Halevi out of jai!

torah vs. a yid
November 24, 2009 7:06 pm

someone in 770 once knocked someone who got pushed into the person holding the sefer torah the Rebbe said (paraphrased): “a person is higher than a sefer torah”

He was a simple chossid, and his name was just Shmuel, so it may havebeen R’ Shmuel Munkis

I cant believe this is not a dream – in this weeks parsha Yakkov had a dream – there was a ladder in that dream, there was malchim going up and down the malachim that were going up was going to accomany Yakkov to eretz Yisroel and the ones that are going down is going to accomany him to lavans house – this can connect to the time right this instint – i am sure that malachim well be with Rebushakin when he goes anywere or dose anything and malachim will all go with us to Eretz Yisorel – Cause… Read more »

This shrew

calls herself a judge. A judge needs to have wisdom and compassion. For the non-violent crimes SMR is charged with and all the collateral made available to insure the governments concern of him being a flight risk, she should be embarrassed to call herself a judge. Further, as a judge she shouldn’t be acting as the executioner too.

you are a bunch of know nothing thats why you are suprised that a torah was used
it clearly states that you “must” even sell a torah for Pidyon sheviyim let alone post it as bail!!!!!!

Quality journalism!
November 24, 2009 10:24 am

Don’t you just love the accuracy of this article?
“A Sioux Falls, S.D. jury convicted him two weeks ago on 86 counts of bank, mail and wire fraud, money laundering and failure to pay livestock providers in a timely manner. He faces a maximum of 1,255 years in prison.”
He was not found guilty for the failure to pay livestock providers in a timely manner and he does not face 1,255 years in prison.

November 24, 2009 10:23 am

I don’t think they would actually have to give the Torah if he ran, they would probably have to give the Torah’s worth

November 24, 2009 9:23 am

that was my first reaction, but there is no bigger than the mitzvah than pidyon shvuyin, so i beleive it’s valid. dont forget the story (not sure who the chossid was) There was a jew in prison because he owed the poritz money. A chosid went erev yom kippur to collect money for pidyon shvuyin. with little time left till sundown and not enough money, he went to a tavern and got the goyim to pay him for every drink he consumed till he got enough money. He gave the money to the poritz and then went to shul and… Read more »

November 24, 2009 8:26 am

Why would someone offer their Torah’s??? Doesnt seem right to exchange a Torah for anyone.
