    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 »

    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.

    you are a bunch of know nothing thats why you are suprised that a torah was used

    I believe the story was with Shmuel Munkes and the Alter Rebbe. Could be wrong but that is who I remember hearing the story about!

    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.

    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!
